Small, cozy, romantic eatery worthy of stars. We enjoyed the spaghetti and pizza on our last visit. All of the appetizers are great.

Tucked into an older Vanier neighbourhood, this wonderful little restaurant is easily missed. It's friendly and has a regular local clentele, which is how we discovered it. The chef (parlial owner) is excellent. This is not your usual local pizza joint, although the pizza is...More
