This is my first time visiting Kingston, myself and some co-workers were visiting from out of town. I have to admit I'm not normally a big fan of Italian food, but this place blew my mind. The staff are really friendly and the service was great. Every meal comes with a free caesar salad and fresh bread. The food is... More

Last night, I spontaneously picked this Italian restaurant downtown Kingston. My friend and I decided to explore, though not inclined for Italian dishes that evening. We decided to go for it considering that they were offering gluten free options. The place has a nice setting and the service at our table was excellent. As for the food itself, we both... More

We visited Frankie Pesto's on a Thursday evening so the restaurant wasn't busy at all which is to be somewhat expected downtown during February. The service was great and they gave us ample time to make our choices. There is lots to choose from on the menu and we were all very satisfied with the selections we made. Portion size... More

Dropped in here on the evening of 10 Feb, my last night in Canada. After dining on burgers, pizza, poutine and the like for a week it was definitely time for a change. I ordered the Atlantic salmon with pea risotto followed by a raspberry cheese cake. Both were amazing. The staff here are really friendly and very attentive. If... More

Arrived at 7:30pm on a Saturday night and hostess was kind enough to find us a table two. We did not have a reservation. The meal was very good. Tasty, fresh and more then affordable. The service was terrific and the food was very good. Very old school Italian food and decor. Loved it.

I showed up one evening while it was busy downtown i had my fiance in the car with his parents and our son while I ran in to check availability. I asked the hostess if they had a table for 4 as our son usually sits in the booth with us. She was pleasant and said yes as she was... More

My husband and I wanted to go somewhere nice for dinner but had our 2 year old with us. This was the perfect place, it has a great atmosphere, really nice staff and they were welcoming to our toddler. Our food was delicious and reasonably priced.

This restaurant is located right in downtown Kingston. It has great atmosphere and a nice patio right on Ontario St. Service is usually very good - there is one wisecracking waiter who becomes a bit much after a while, but overall service is fine. The food is excellent. Plenty of options and food always comes out plentiful, hot and tasty.... More

Took my girlfriend here for a romantic dinner during the Christmas Holidays. Success on all fronts: it was romantic, delicious, and reasonably priced too (smile)!

Met with some friends last Friday night for a few drinks and a meal. We ordered salmon, pizza and pasta. We were all satisfied with our selections.
