This restaurant stands the test of time and does not disappoint. Very quaint setting, superb food and reasonable prices. Service was excellent and I can't wait to go back.

Service was just ok, food was honest but not much more. Also the decor was outdated. Overall I expected more from this place because of reviews that I have read.

This restaurant has been around for years. The quality and taste of the food remain the same. No matter what pasta you try you cant go wrong. Excellent service as well. The only complaint is that it is poorly lit. Make sure you bring reading glasses.

We really enjoyed the whole experience from start to finish. This was our first time and our waiter explained everything to us. I found my steak was tender but could have used a little more seasoning. The pasta side dish was excellent. The best sauce I have ever had. Wine recommendation was also very good and cheesecake was perfect size... More

I have lived 6 years in Windsor Ontario 2009-2015. I was in the restaurant many many times and I used to take all my guests to it. The food is great. I usually order the New York Strip steak and grilled Salmon and the lamb shops they are the best. The owner is always there ad he is very nice... More

The food is to die for here. We've been going for 25 plus years. The lamb chops are phenomenal. The carbonara is the best outside of Italy. Their caesar salads are fabulous, too. No matter what any of our party ordered, it was fabulous.

Everything you eat is commenced with cloves of garlic. Wine was not expensive. It does not matter what you order, it all tastes like garlic.
