Servers were good, went through 2. Wine was 30% sold out? Never saw that before. Appetizers were delicious and savoury. Pizzas and kitchen pastas are outstanding. Great place to conduct business, go on a date or catch up with friends.

Recent name change after fire. Now called Red Fang. Great food, exceptional presentation, service is superb. Decor inventive, location downtown Sudbury - worth the trip.

Thanks so much Eileen - and looking very forward to cooking for you again anytime! One thing: The name hasn't changed, and Respect is Burning, of course, lives on. It's part of a larger square now - and that's our Durham Social plaza - keeping company with Red Fang Tavern (80 Durham) , Durham Hal (Upper Storey Events/Kitchen/Show Hall) ...and... More

My partner and I went on a Tuesday evening which is generally a very quiet night. Service was prompt and helpful. I had the chicken saltimbocca and my partner had the gnocchi. Gnocchi was good, but the saltimbocca was truly excellent - the best I have ever had. We enjoyed glasses of prosecco (gnocchi) and an Italian syrah/shiraz (saltimbocca) from... More

Ever since this restaurant re-opened it has been extremely disappointing. The food and atmosphere is not what it used to be. Hopefully it will change!

Both the bruschetta appetizer and a pasta dinner was absolutely the best Italian cuisine I have had in a very long time. I would recommend this restaurant to everyone.

What a super funky great decor! The staff are young and anxious to please but also good at what they do! The cocktails were good, the menu is very interesting. We were not too hungry so the two of us shared two mains. The arugula salad with mushrooms is out of this world! The mushrooms are crispy and delicious and... More

Excellent Italian and Italian kissed cooking culled from the owners' family archives and travel jaunts recreated as a well worn, well-loved and heavily textured vintage tavern/trattoria experience where heavy upcyling targets informed and shaped this one-of-a-kind design that's both ancient and modern, edgy and sexy all at once. Curated eclectic soundtrack to accompany an old school sworn menu replete with vintage Italian tavern and home cooked rustic flavours - fresh traditional pastas of Roman, Umbrian and Tuscan tradition, a quality grill offering of top notch beef, lamb, veal, quail, chicken, fish and pork. Part of the historic zone's Durham Social - a multi-chambered emporium housing several intimate and highly popular concepts, keeping company currently with Red Fang Tavern, Durham Hall and the Roma '71 Bar. An awesome and unique find in a Northern Ontario city's downtown!
