Located inside Bayview village, it offers a nice and cozy dinning experience. Foods are great as expected and staff are friendly.

The food is good though rather expensive for what you get. Fettuccine alfredo was good but presentation was bland.... just a plop of cream colour. Pizza was good. Wait staff was fast and efficient.

North York
North York is one of Toronto's most culturally diverse
neighborhoods. Home to a number of cultural events
throughout the year that celebrate the city's varied
ethnic communities, it's always worthwhile to see
what's going on in the area. Its cross-section of
inhabitants include students and long-time residents,
giving North York an eclectic feeling of being both
local and international. Extremely family-friendly,
