The food was good. Would have preferred if the ambiance was improved to reflect the restaurant name. Some nice music would have been appreciated. Table we got was a bit squashed in the corner in a tight area. adding vegetarian and halal dishes to the menu choices would be a plus to the place. Worth dining there.

Third time coming in from Calgary and making the trip to Michaels. Well worth it. Had the pasta festival farfale dish and it was great. One of our party had the gnocchi and said it was the best ever

Tucked away in the back of Lakeshore road, this is a really really nice place to go and eat. The restaurant appears small but it is not overly noisy, the service is cordial and polite and attentive but not overbearing.

The food is really really good. Fresh ingredients. Carefully prepared. Taste reflects the care of the kitchen, but I wasn't really wowed by what was on the plate. Pasta cooked to perfect doneness. The veal with the mushroom cognac reduction was good, but not outstanding.

All in all, would recommend 100%. Really enjoyed our visit. Really enjoyed the food. Really good service. Just a bit short of amazing but I will definitely be back!

Also, final comment is that for the quality served, I was surprised that the cost was not at all unreasonable!

The restaurant is nice but tables are packed to each other. Glad the restaurant wasn't full or else we'd be listening to other people's conversion for the evening. Ordered the cioppino di pesce which is seafood dish. The seafood is fresh but way over cooked. Never expected to taste rubberry scallop and tough shrimp based on reviews. The toast accompanying the dish was burnt and dry. The European bass was small and overdone too.

Service was excellent. But food is an important part of dining out and we were disappointed about the quality of cooking. Not worth the price.
