We decided to have a quick meal after picking up my wife at the airport at about 7:30. Seeing that I had made reservations we were seated right away. The pleasant waitress took our orders right away. Now this is where things went a little sour. We waited for an hour and 15 minutes for our meal to come. Thank goodness we had not seen each other in a while so we had lots to catch up on. This was on the the BC Day Monday but the restaurant was not overly busy but food was coming out of the kitchen VERY slowly. We were given no apology or explanation about the slow service.......in fact we did not see our waitress since she dropped off our drinks and then to drop off our bill almost an hour later. The food was OK but very skimpy on the tomato basil sauce on my pasta. As locals I don't think we will be going back again.

We had a dinner in July 2017. The prices were OK, but the service were very slow. On both dishes the paste did not seam fresh made. The meatballs tasted like it was industrial made and frozen. The Lasagna was tasteless

Went here with family and friends. We were a group of six and the booth table was nice. Comfy, with lots of room, right by a gas fireplace that would be on in the winter I'm guessing.
The food was not great.
Dip was bland with very little bread to dip ratio. They wanted to charge us $4 for more bread. The smoked salmon pasta dish was so salty we couldn't eat it, although my brother that loves salt ate it after finishing his lasagna(which he says was good, for whatever that's worth). We ordered one of their flat breads and all you could taste was the pan it came from.
So basically the lasagna is good.
Just stay away from everything else on the menu.

Nice little Italian restaurant in Penticton. Food is as expected in a small town. (Average is still good in a small town when you are comparing it to restaurants in large cities around the world). We go there every year to "carb up" before the Gran Fondo. Never disappointed.

Nice, friendly place, good for families. All served as big portions with decent pasta, nice sauces if possibly a bit too much of the creamy sauces. Wine was OK, prices reasonable.
