We booked this restaurant for a large group lunch (30 kids and adults) with more than a week of lead time. Manager 'warned' us at the time of the booking that we would have to be patient because of the size and that it would take some time to get our food. So, going in, we were prepared that this...

Stopped in on a Thursday night for dinner, we got there at 6, not many people so no reason for the service. They asked us to wait while they cleaned a table. There must have been at least 15 tables empty. Service was extremely slow, when they finally came with our meals we asked for cheese once we were 1/4... More

Nice supper visit recently. Good food as usual, waitress was efficient and friendly. Washroom was clean, except only one unisex washroom on the main floor, the others involved a lengthy trek down 3 flights of stairs. Menu was recently revamped with some nice additions, especially on the pasta and seafood side. All in all nicely run place!

This place is huge, it can easily handle the crowds. The food is what one would expect out of an ESM, dependable Italian food, but nothing really special.

Impressed at how quickly our waiter came to our table when I began to choke. He reacted quicker than my husband and daughter. I was fine but grateful for such an attentive server.

I have driven by this particular restaurant dozens of times and never really gave it a second look. I had been there ten years or so ago and back then the place looked dated and the food was just okay. I went there for lunch today and was surprised at how good the place looked after a recent renovation. The... More

This is the worst display of cooking or lack there of. Kung pow shimp, which I'm glad she didn't eat the shrimp was raw and cold inside still and I ordered the easiest bloody thing to cook on the menu which was a burger with two pattis. This makes me so angry, yet makes me laugh. How can you screw... More

Sadly we won't be returning, the penned arrabiata was totally flavourless and bland. This was the second time in 6 weeks that I had been there and had the same dish. Both times it has fallen flat. The servers are pleasant but they don't make up for the over priced, under flavoured food.

Everything was excellent, the food, service and cleanliness. I have nothing to complain about. My son got a birthday sundae on the house. We will return.
