Claudio's used to be our 'local' for a number of years but we moved out of the area and our visits are not as frequent. But we always bring our friends to the restaurant to experience the proper European fine dining, the owner Claudio personally comes to greet you on entering the restaurant, hangs our jackets, takes us to our...

A group of us went for dinner here, as we had heard great things. In the end however, most of us felt we wouldn't return. Spending over $900 for a party of eight people -- there are SO MANY better options in Hamilton. We just couldn't believe the bill came to that much for the average quality food we received.... More

Our first visit to this charming restaurant, which was originally a large & lovely family home, was a delightful experience. The menu is pure Italian and the atmosphere is cozy and warm. Our server was very fluent with the menu and she offered us varied selections. I tried a lamb/pasta special which was mouth watering delicious and my wife enjoyed... More

this was a working lunch, and as such we found the service a bit slow, but the food was very good and the staff gracious. the chef came out to see whether we had enjoyed our meal, and that is a plus!

Weak showing by this place - the other reviewers must be comparing it to eating out of a dumpster of a greasy spoon on Barton. First - let me set expectations - I consider fine dining in Burlington the Lord Nelson, or Napoleons. We risked Hamilton, hearing about the up and coming food culture - a big mistake in this...

This is the real deal. We have been here on many occasions and are never disappointed with the level of quality of the food and the service. Christine is a goddess of the kitchen. Beautiful traditional décor. Wonderful wine choices. The risotto is my favourite but everything we and our guests have tried has been delicious. They give you a... More

I have eaten here many times and have had a wonderful experience every time. Claudio, the owner is there to greet customers and his wife, Christine, is the chef. The food is wonderful and plentiful. There are daily specials such as Osso Buco, rabbit ragout, lamb shank and others. A superb Italian wine list. A beautiful décor makes for a... More

We dined here a few times for lunch and found the food very tasty. The service was very attentive and friendly and the table presentation was nice. The dining room is well appointed, the staff is knowledgeable and the cost for lunch was quite affordable. We are certain to be back again.

a quaint restaurant. We went in with high expectations based on a revue in a business publication and were disappointed with dinner. Normally not opne on Sunday's but were due to Valentine's Day, our proteins' were all slightly overcooked. I had beef and it came out medium not medium rare, calamari was slightly rubbery, shrimp and lobster just overdone--talking two... More
