A great Italian restaurant located just steps from BC Place and General Motors Place/Roger Place. My wife and I️ eat here regularly and always enjoy the food.

Asked the host if there were gf options for breakfast, she told us yes, sat down and our server told us we could have eggs, bacon or fruit. Hardly much of an option. We left hungry.
