Despite being absolutely full of people celebrating Victoria Day, the food was absolutely excellent. The restaurant does not let it's standards slip just because it is busy, and we didn't have any undue waiting time either. If anything could be said, the attention to water could have been a little better, but we managed to get the Waitress's attention so... More

Came here after a day at the Nordiq spa we needed something heavy so we googled where to go for Italian in Byward Market and this was conveniently located across the street from the Andaz where we were staying. Cute spot, we sat upstairs by the window, ordered the garlic mussels, veal chop and their special that evening lamb shank... More

I had the soup of the day and pescatore pasta. Both were delicious. It was truly the best pescatore pasta I have ever had my entire life, and I hit up Italian restaurants as often as I can. Tables were a bit close together but otherwise a nice atmosphere. Would definitely eat here again, and again.

The bruschetta was excellent - very flavourful. Pasta was fresh and sauce was excellent. Their pizzas are to die for. The service was friendly and efficient. Exposed brick walls are nice. I found the value for the area to be very good - I expected a larger bill. Will definitely return.

We went here for my birthday dinner and it was perfect! We made a reservation and they had a table for us right by the window - perfection! Great service, superb Italian drinks & food! Nice atmosphere as well. Easy to have conversation here. It can get loud at times when it's packed of course but still manageable to talk.... More

Good Italian food in pleasant surroundings. This is a very busy restaurant that is able to still provide personalized service and the delivery of hot food. We shared a bruschetta appetizer (one of the best ever!). For our entrees we asked for pasta substitutions, which were delivered perfectly and the meat/fish was also cooked to perfection. Definitely recommend reservations!!!

This is a fantastic Authentic style Italian Restaurant, I had the Penne with Arriabata sauce. It was awesome. The Wild mushroom soup was amazing. It is a very busy restaurant and lucked out getting squeezed in without a reservation. Weather was poor so not as much foot traffic.
