We just spent our worst Mother's Day at this place. It was our first & last trip. The woman we were greeted with was not friendly at all. The waitress was ok but continuously took our cutlery & napkins away & never replaced. My kids were sharing a fork at one point. The buffet was way overpriced given the amount of food served. There was nothing Italian about it. There was no bread, salad, cheese, olives , etc... and very little choices at the buffet. The food was cold. The worst part was the dessert was store bought mini blueberry muffins! Yes! Unbelievable. Coffee was cold & in a self serve jug! I was embarrassed to have brought my mother here & furious at what I spent. We left after 45 min with a $250 tab for 4 adults & 1 child.... no coffee, no dessert, no alcohol . Shameful

I’ve stayed at the Homewood Suites many times in the past few years. I’ve always wanted to try Al Di La Bistro for dinner, but wasn’t sure if I’d enjoy it. Well, last week I went for dinner - and I loved it. I was seated immediately, very friendly server who took my order. I ordered linguini with clams and it was delicious. I usually eat half of my meal, but I couldn’t stop! Everything was perfectly cooked with many clams. The Caprise Salad was also very good. If you’re staying at the Homewood Suite, come to this restaurant- you will not be disappointed. I was there last week. I’m back on business with my wife this time and we’re leaving for dinner now- back to Al Di La Bistro!

Pretty standard Italian food. Traditional. Not cheap, but not too expensive. My family and I enjoy it.

It was my first time at this restaurant and I highly recommend this place to eat a great meal. I like the atmosphere it's very roomy and they have a nice bar with a dining area surrounding it. The food was very good and waitress too. We used a coupon to get a free appetizer or free desert. Me and my grandmother chose to split the clams oreganato which was delicious. I ordered stuffed flounder which was really good and my grandmother ordered the swordfish which she liked a lot. I really enjoyed the way it was decorated too very stylish and not overdone for Valentine's Day. I will be back here soon. The waitress informed me that they have karaoke on Friday nights with a live DJ and play disco music which I'm going check out one Friday night.

If you want to have amazing Italian Food like your nonna used to make, go to this restaurant.Ambience is great, but it is the food that is out of this world. My husband had the bacalah & even though he was stuffed (portions are big), he couldn't stop eating until he finished everything. The pasta is amazing & so is the service. We have gone to the restaurant everytime we have visited from Montreal & will keep on going.
