There was not enough sauce for the spaghetti underneath. The chicken was very dry and the dish was quite salty. The hot bread was the best part but only... More

This is a great restaurant in a good location in the shopping district of Dartmouth Crossing. Everything on the menu is wonderful. Pasta, Pasta, Pasta... at the top of the list!

The food was just ok. The paninis were not on panini Bread! We got a baguette and a wrap. Guess we should have read the description better or they should have had them in a separate sandwich section. The lobster stuffed mushrooms were good. The wait staff is very "green". They had music blasting so loud you could hardly have... More

Had the warm Greek salad it was pretty good. Very standard Canadian Italian restaurant. Service was ok waitress not overly friendly but not rude. Was not bust when I was there so there was a nice relaxed and quite atmosphere. Once was probably enough for me.

Great food at a good price. It is more interesting than it appears from the exterior. They could use more servers, as it gets busy, and there aren't enough staff to serve the patrons efficiently. The take out is busy, and for good reason. The food is worth it.

My wife and I had been meaning to give this restaurant a try for a year or two, and finally did it. We went for lunch, arriving at 12:45. The place was very busy and we had to wait a few minutes for a table. We were taken to the back of the place, in a booth. The table was... More

Food and customer service were fantastic. The space was a little small but it still felt private. I will be back again!
