Our go to place for a great meal. This time the experience wasn't so great. Food terrific as always but the service left a lot to be desired. Our server was attentive, but seemed in a big rush and rushing us every time she came...to the table. Didn't even ask if we wanted a printed copy of our credit card receipt. She was gone before I had a chance to ask. I realize it was Valentine's, but no excuse in my opinion. Five stars for the food, two for the service. On another note, her perfume was so overwhelming I still smelled it hours later at home.More

Warmly greeted upon entering. Server came by and was excellent at recommending different dishes. Tried the one with all the seafood as shown in one of the pictures above. It tasted fantastic. Woukd have been 5 but the scallops were over looked and they were...what I was looking forward to the most. The rest was so good that I will definitely be back.More

Honestly, if they weren't so close to so many hotels, I don't think they'd survive. We had the kalamari to start, chicken parmesan and a pasta dish with seafood for the main course, then tiramisu and a brownie with ice cream for dessert. The kalamari...is not deep fried, but pan fried and smothered in tomato sauce. This was explained to us upon ordering so we can't complain about that, but I didn't like it. Luckily my colleague thought it was ok. The mains were also ok. The chicken parmesan was big enough, though it came with literally a handful of pasta on the side. It was the special of the day, and therefore came with soup or salad. I opted for the Caesar salad. It wasn't very big (it was an appetizer after all), but I also found it a bit light on the garlic. I like my Caesar full of garlic and this was not the case for this one. The chicken parmesan was ok, nothing special. The brownie with ice cream was disappointing. The presentation was nice, but, as was the case with everything else, the taste was just ok, nothing special. The tiramisu was very good, and by far the best part of our meal. $8 for a bottle of water? $9 for a VERY average dessert? I don't think I'll be back, and if I am, it will be ONLY for the tiramisu.More

The food and service was excellent. Our group had the carbonara, tortellini and Tutto mare linguine. They were all served with fresh crusty rolls. The service was attentive and friendly. I would highly recommend for either a business or social dinner.

I had calamari and then seafood pasta. Both dishes were excellent. The tomato sauce was supurb and the seafood and noodles were cooked to perfection. My only beef is that the waitress asked me if I wanted either tap water or sparkling. I asked for...sparkling and expected a glass but waitress brought an open bottle of S. Pellegrino. It was a dirty trick and I didn’t appreciate it. Without this I would have rated it 5 stars.More

We are in town visiting family and my parents suggested this restaurant that they’d been to once. From the moment we walked in the door we felt welcome and like family. My parents were greeted with a welcome back (remember they’d been there once) the...server saying she remembered their faces and then the second time our wonderful server came back she knew my dads name having taken the time to go check the reservation and made it personal. Everything else from there fell into place perfectly. All servers were efficient, kind, and thoughtful. The meal was fresh, warm, and exceptional to the palate. In a world where small pleasures are taken for granted and EXCELLENT customer experiences are a surprise - this team nailed it and then some.More

We are staying at a nearby budget hotel surrounded by fast food outlets. We were delighted to find the restaurant a short walk away and having read the reviews ate here. We were not disappointed. The service was excellent and the food very good. We...were surprised it was so quiet and can only recommend the locals give it more support!More

Vacationed in Canmore & Banff all week and spent our last night in Calgary, near the airport. I used Trip Advisor to help find a restaurant for dinner and it did not disappoint. I had the pasta carbonara and my Mom had the seafood pasta...with red sauce. Delicious!!More

We had a delicious meal. The place is small but quaint. Great atmosphere and friendly staff. My teenagers left full which isn’t easy. Portions were perfect!!
