I’m not the biggest fan of lasagna, but ordered it so my husband would get the best of both worlds and have his favourite lasagna. It was the BEST LASAGNA I’ve ever had. My daughter had the Carbonara and it was delicious as well. My husband had the veal and it was so tender and yummy. The wine list is amazing. Wide selection of many great wines. A few BC wines and many from all around the world. The menu has lots of Italian favourites, I’ll be sure to come back.
The food and ambiance are excellent, if not a little dated. They accommodated allergy inquiries directly with the kitchen. The service was very slow. Drinks never arrived before the course of food and often not until after it was completed. Other drink orders didn't arrive at all. The food was great. Generally in 5 star dining places, the servers explain the food as they put it down. They talk it up and highlight ingredients and flavours. Here they dropped it and when queried knew almost nothing about it. Not even the ingredients on the side sauce for oysters. Neither the servers, nor the food runners could explain the ingredients of a sauce or the prep on various dishes nor any potential allergens unless they checked with the kitchen first. I have been to many restaurants and worked in the industry for 20 years, at the higher end of things all questions should be answered by staff educated in the menu. It's supposed to be a miniature vacation where cutlery comes down before the course and where one is treated to attentive and we'll thought out service points. For the price point and food quality being so very high, and the reputation of the establishment so longstanding, the service was truly abysmal.
Decided to come here considering the rave about how it’s a great Italian restaurant. I arrived 5 minutes late and ended up waiting 15 minutes until being seated to the bar-not my table. Didn’t really want to order a drink but decided to pass by time until I got seated at my table. 15 minutes passed and I finally got seated at my table. Our server was nice and friendly, and the food was good. Pricey but good for special occasions. Great ambience but the restaurant seemed very full. The lobster pasta special with a side of short ribs was delicious.
Amazing and very pleasant service. Despite its reputation for Italian food, the seafood was excellent. Food was fresh and the vegetables were well made. The cannoli for desert was marvelous. Highly recommended for special occasions.
Great meal and great service.
