A small group of us went to this restaurant for a friend's birthday. Our reservation was for 6:30pm. I was the last to join the group. The staff was extremely friendly and accommodating. One of the owners was in attendance and ensured our table was looked after. Once our drink orders were taken, the lovely waitress came back to take... More

The food is good here, and the prices are reasonable, but the seating is very tight and awkward. If they took out a few tables or rearranged things, there would be a lovely open and airy atmosphere due to the many windows. Service is fast and friendly. Plenty of parking is available in the paid municipal lot in back. Lasagna... More

Stopped in before NYE festivities. We were greeted promptly by the friendly staff and brought to our table. The place was half full but I had made a reservation anyways. The server came to our table and informed us about several items that were not available that night. This was a bonus. As no one likes picking out a dish... More

This is a group of senior ladies that go out for dinner once a month to different places. We had been to this place, Cafe Limencello and everything was fine but tonight we went back and two of the ladies got their dinners and the veal was tough and tasted sour and when they complained to our server, who was...

Love the atmosphere. Bright and colourful; brightens even the grayest Sunday morning. I have only visited for brunch, but it is a keeper. The omelettes are to die for. The service is outstanding on all levels; it is obvious these folks know what they're doing. Perfect way to start your morning. Definitely a cut above.
