Delicious food without a doubt. Filling and flavorful. Establishment was very clean, with a great staff. Just only qualm would be the pricing. I did think that it was inflated for what one received. I would recommend, not sure if I would return.

Had lunch here with 4 of us. Service was quick and the food was pretty decent. My daughter had the pasta with the cheese and butter and I had another veggie pasta. Both were alright. Nothing special.

The eating areas are very nice in a colourful & spacious way. I had the crab ravioli that was 95 percent noodle and 5 percent shredded fake crab. The green sauce was pond scum green and devoid of any flavor. My guest had chicken parmigiana...More
