We stop here every time we are in town and we are never disappointed. There is a new menu which is just a couple weeks old. We tried the Pollo Tagliuzzare and Capricciosa. Both were delicious and very generous portions. We left very satisfied. Service was great and the ambience is perfect.

Have visited 3 times in the last 6 months (and we live a 1.25 hr round trip away) because of the warmth, coziness, and astonishingly good Italian food. We could be in downtown Montreal, Ottawa, or Toronto. Appetizers and main dishes wide range of ingredients and flavours. Compact and carefully chosen Wine List

The ambiance, service, friendliness, and of course the anticipation of an exquisite meal is all part of the experience.

The food was excellent, the atmosphere was intimate and the service was outstanding. Good place to go with friends. Why does it only rate a 4? The price is almost overwhelming. I would love to say I'd be going back, but, not until the prices get a bit better.

You're in Perth ON and you wouldn't expect some of the nicest tasting Italian food around, but Bistro 54 surprises. The food is fresh, authentic and super tasty. I was there with a large group (25+) and The staff were amazing. They accommodated our large group easily and the food was hot and fast.

I have eaten here 3 times now (would be more if I could afford it!) and every time it's absolutely fantastic. Service is good, atmosphere is good although limited seating and always busy. It is pricey but value is there to justify the cost. Wine prices are steep and should be reviewed accordingly with prices in the area. Antipasti Plate... More

We headed to another restaurant with friends and couldn't get in. So we all said we have been wanting to try "that Italian place around the corner". What amazing luck! The server was very competant and personable. The food will pull us back again and again. And they finished us off with a shot of limoncello! Delicious.

Arrived on a Friday evening with no reservation although they are strongly recommended with a couple of friends. The place was not too busy and the service was attentive. The food was great I had a dish with scallops, shrimp, chicken and lobster risotto to die for. I had been there a couple of years prior and I was happy... More
