    What a great little place - like nook of italy in Barrhaven.

    Place is always busy, because the food is fresh, and sauces taste like they're made from scratch. I wish there were oil-based sauce options, since there's mainly cream-sauces (asked for a pesto without cream, just oil, and was no good).

    Recommend the gnocci rosé (wow) and the canelloni, manicotti and lasagna. Again, wow.

  • Order: Manicotti, veal, lasagna, penne rosé, gnocci rosé

  • I ordered take out, and when I got home was ramsacking the bag to find the tsatziki....none. So I called to ask if they serve it with their souflaki platters and they said no.... wow. That's like not having soy sauce with sushi...

    I also agree with others that the rice and potatoes were 'meh' and there was too much of it. Save on potatoes and rice, spend on tsatziki?

    Did find the salad lovely. The ingredients were fresh. Staff was also super. Very friendly.

    Sadly I don't think I'd want to spend another $40 of my money there.... it's sad because I do like the atmosphere and the people.

  • Order: lamb souflaki platter, chicken souflaki platter
