Honestly I think the restaurant is overrated. Don't get me wrong, the pasta are really good, but it might be slightly over-priced. We arrived at the restaurant in a weekend morning, didn’t have any waits at all. The restaurant is small but cozy, with a checkerboard floor and teak-lined interior. Reservations are not accepted there so you'd better arrive early to secure a table. The waitress was really nice and guided us through the menu. We were a bit disappointed since there are not many pasta selection in the brunch menu. (Only 4 pasta). So don't go on weekend afternoon if you want to enjoy their pasta. Speaking of pasta, they are made from scratch and flavourful. However the portion is really small.
Excellent food, but quite pricey. The service was good, however it was upsetting when we were rather bluntly told that we were required to order everything all at once. We were not sure how much pasta we wanted to order, so we were going to see how we enjoyed the appetizers and then go from there. The only reason I can think of for forcing customers to order everything all at once is so that they have control over the pace of your meal so they can turn tables over quicker. Not the best customer service.
I came to this place for the first time. The lineup wasn’t too long (20-30 minutes), but during peak times be prepared to wait 30 mins or more. We ordered all 4 pasta dishes and shared and had the banana bread to start. Quality was fantastic and pasta was well made. Service was great and overall had a pleasant experience. Will certainly be back in the future.
I was very excited to eat at this place eventually but not very happy with my visit. This place has absolutely no acoustic treatment is the loudest restaurant I've been to. Food quality wasn't to the expectation either. The meat sauce pasta had a poor taste and the pasta wasn't tender. I hope owners read this message and at least do something about the sound treatment.
Absolutely some of the best Italian food I've had. Everything I've ordered here has been delicious. The wait staff have all been friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable. Highly recommend to anyone, it's worth the wait.
