We had lunch here, and we all really enjoyed our meal choices. Delicious and very fresh! A unique system where you select only what you want and pay accordingly, making it good value. Would definitely go there again if we had the chance.

My husband & I had dinner here on valentine's day & it was amazing. The food was absolutely delicious. We both had pasta & an antipasti platter. Would definitely eat here again! All their pasta is handmade & the dishes are made right in front of you.

Always delicious, I love the chefs as they always make conversation with you and ask you where you are from. They too have accents some of them and it's an extremely great setup with the bar and kitchen being separated as well as having outdoor seating it's always a blast. Love the food it's delicious

An awesome experience, delicious food. Me and my partner visited at not very busy times which was perfect however peak times there may be more of a wait for food. Loved sitting out on the balcony and the herb pots on the tables are a neat idea.

Very nice food, and interesting to watch being made, however, my friend became violently ill that night after eating the pesto pasta with chicken.

Upon entry you are given complicated instructions on how to obtain your meal and you then order at the bistro, take a buzzer, return and carry it back yourself. Work it baby! The pastas were tasteless and dry and the pizza was slightly less tasteless. Then you pay - $80 for 2, and the drinks vouchers that were given on... More
