Had great service in the restaurant, and awesome food as well! It can be tough for a few vegetarians to eat great food late at night, but this place was delicious. The chocolate mousse blew my mind.

If you want real parmesan, cut from the block, grated
over your pasta with a twist of style, this is the
place. Until recently, this neighbourhood was home to
the notorious ‘Carlton Crew,’ a pseudo mafia who
started their day with a local espresso. They are
gone, but the espresso still runs strong in this
Little Italy which has something for everyone.
Starched white tablecloths, candles, pizza the way
