Was really excited to eat here considering the reviews and recommendations from friends, but our meal was just not good. I got the chicken Marsala and my wife got the chicken ortolana. Both had the same brown sauce used in both dishes and was very flat without any depth of flavor. It was a weird sauce that we both described as ‘thick and slick’. It was reminiscent of gravy that comes in a jar. It was all pretty bland and needed salt and the chicken Marsala lacked the acid punch you usually get from the wine in the sauce. Just disappointing. The side of pasta that came with my meal was great, sauce tasted really good. The polenta that came with my wife’s meal however, had no flavor but was cooked perfectly. We just had two meals and a glass of wine, I ordered a Diet Coke which was $8! In total it was like 120.00 … it was not worth that. Sadly, we would have had a better meal at Old Spaghetti Factory. I hope it was just an off day in the kitchen, we were so excited but it was a huge disappointment. Service was excellent, bread was perfect.


We really enjoyed this restaurant. It is old school Italian and delicious. The service was excellent!! Loved the bread too much. Would go again!!


Our go to spot in Guelph. Great food and drinks!


THe petrale fish special was outstanding. A myriad of flavors burst through, and the fish was fresh. The bread was excellent, as was the polenta and veggies. My companions' parmagan dishes were also excellent.

Old school Italian style experience with impeccable service. Your wine or water will never go less than three quarters full. The lasagna was killer and I left full and happy!

Decent food. Service was ok. A tad overpriced maybe

First time and will be back!


We have had great dinners in the past (5-10 Yrs ago). The old school quality & flavor is no longer there. Cannelloni was filled with tasteless chopped veal. Spaghetti with meat sauce tasted like Ragu and Veal scallopini brown sauce tasted like powdered sauce mix. Add insult to injury most dishes $33-38.!! One bright spot - excellent service and attentive bus boy.


Good food; great service

Excellent place! Very friendly staff, very helpful and kind. Cozy atmosphere, more home-like than intimate.Tomato slices with anchovy is very good, definitely recommend. Keep in mind - it's rather big appetizer, comes with calamari bits. Perfect fit for sharing.Pepper steak was very good as well - tender and juicy, full of flavor.
