The food and service was fantastic and the prices are very fair. Italian food is typically not my first choice when choosing a restaurant, but after visiting this place for the first time I will definitely be choosing it more often.

Went there for a family function and had a mixed experience. Enjoyed the bruschetta, but the calimari was a touch rubbery. Enjoyed the Linguini de Mari which was generous on the mussels but had only one scallop and two shrimp. Linguini was tasty, as was caesar salad. Forno canneloni was just ok- texture of filling was too mushy(too processed). Kids enjoyed the spaghetti and meat ball. Chicken Parm was good. Found the entrees a bit overpriced for what you get, although most had good basic flavor and aroma. Waitress Carol was very friendly and service was efficient. Service was not rushed nor was the restaurant overly busy. With some tweaks, this restaurant could be outstanding.

It seems that reservations are mandatory? They have a lot of regular customers.
I started with the fried smelts, a generous portion, crispy and just out of the deep-fryer.
The pasta Alfredo was also generous with too much cream for my liking.
Good espresso.

First thing is that if you are looking to come here on a Friday or Saturday night make sure you have a reservation as the place has been fully booked both times we have gone, and anyone looking to walk-in might be able to get a spot at the bar.
The size of the place is small and cosy allowing one to have a nice intimate time out compare to the Fratellis in Kanata which is much larger and very noisy.
The service was a bit slow both times we were there which we put down to the fact that by 7pm the place is packed and they could do with an extra paid of hands helping to expedite food and clear tables.
That said the staff worked as fast as they could and were friendly and helpful with steering two of us who have Celiac disease to gluten free safe options of which there are plenty.
The nicest thing about their gluten free options is that for pasta rather than simply offering the usual Penne pasta that every other restaurant offers up, they have gluten free Fettuccine, which was of very good quality and made the Fettuccine Alfredo Con Pollo that much more enjoyable.
The Alfredo sauce is also gluten free and was rich and creamy and we couldn't help but literally clean the bowl clean.
We thoroughly enjoyed our first time there that we came back just a few weeks later and have put this in out list of go to places.
