The restaurant was easy to find and more importantly very people friendly. What I mean by that is, you could carry on a conversation without having to yell. Even with the live music it was very pleasant reminiscing with friends. The food was very good with Calamari starter and there special which was scallops and shrimps on a spicy linguine.... More

Couldn't have been better if they tried. The pizza was FANNNNNNNNNNNTASTIC and the wine wasn't bad either.......lol........Both Kathy (rookie server) and Laura (manager) were fabulous and couldn't...

We were a party of 3 dining there on a Friday night. They had a live 2 pc. band (guitar & traditional stand-up bass) - just okay background music, but not Italian-themed. We sat at a large long booth which offered ample room for an even larger group - comfortable padded seating - a bit dark in the room (could... More

Easy walk from The Barracks Inn. Ask at the Inn about a discount card - they partner with this restaurant. Make a reservation if going on a weekend. All hard surface interior makes for a high noise level. Friendly server brought a complimentary dessert for my birthday. The $9.00 a glass California wines were good, both red and white. Excellent...

It's our favourite restaurant in Ancaster! Thursdays are 5 dollar/glass wine night and although the wine is chosen by the restaurant we have always liked their choices.

Weekly wine special on Thursdays served a $5 California CabSauv that was good. They did not share what it was although I didn't ask either. My wife had gluten free pasta with meatballs and was quite happy with her meal. I had the steak frites, asking for medium and received well done. The delay in receiving a quality check had... More

Excellent! Friends chose and reserved dinner for New Year's Eve which is also our friends birthday. First impression was excellent and kept on. There were four of us. And we were greeted right away. Live soft music was being performed. And we were seated at a table with more than enough space for us all to be comfortable. The menu... More

My husband and I had dinner with another couple who were no stranger to this establishment and we were so glad they suggested it. The wine was on special at $5 per glass and the food was super. Each person at the table had something different and there were no disappointments. I had the Calabrese pizza made gluten free which... More
