Right on Chris....My wife and I will be back again and again.....spreading the word of the great food we had last night......I usually don't reply to comments like the last one posted but I think it's necessary to clarify for other viewers to have a fare and honest expectation as for what to expect.
This is not your typical commercial restaurant where most of the meals if not all are cooked early during the morning hours and than put into the convectional oven when ordered. We cook to order - EVERYTHING - with exception of our soups! We invite anyone to come into our kitchen when preparing their meal to witness that we stand behind what we promote.
Here you will experience real Southern Italian cuisine cooked to order by Anna-Maria and Chris. If you've ever been to Italy and have experienced a small family owned restaurant, you will know & understand that in order to eat at the level we prepare all of our dishes, it takes a bit longer then heating a meal in the microwave or driving through McDonald's. If you have no patients and don't expect the very best, than we suggest you make a stop elsewhere!
Here we're not interested in turnover, instead we want you to enjoy a relaxed atmosphere - no rush - fresh - cooked to order ambiance with your friends and family.
As for the pastas, we do make some of the pastas, like ravioli's and gnocchi's, all other pastas are brought in directly from Italy.
Veggies as part of your main dishes is not impossible (all one has to do is ask) however there are meals you can & there are other's you just can't add vegetables to - it doesn't make a match! Imagine a spaghetti Bolognese or a linguinni frutti di Mare with vegetables? and so are many others...
As for our marked up wines, one can buy anything anywhere at any price their budget permits. It's a deferent ball game when you're running a business, or else why go out?! You could buy most of the ingredients yourself (or just bring them from home where everything is cheaper, especially in Canada, hey!) cook it yourself and save all in all, again especially if you're on a budget. Our wine bottles are comparable if not cheaper to any other Italian on the island guarantee!
Anna-Maria and Chris are not trying to make a go of anything, we've put our name out there thanks to the freshness of all of our ingredients, the passion we have in what we enjoy doing and the know how, especially to the all so many costumers that were here and had nothing else to say than positive comments ( some even suggested we raise our prices for the quality of the food and the ambiance we offer)!
Last, with all due respect to everyone, you don't have to return if you were unhappy, there are many other good restaurants on the Island and why would I change a winning horse if 99% of our clients are repeat customers and are all 101% satisfied with everything?!
Buon Apetito e buona fortuna to everyone!
