    Our Reviews

    This restaurant is very close to two live theaters and Roy Thomson Hall, the home of the Toronto Symphony Orchestra. Our dinner was beautifully prepared and the service was brisk and efficient! Brian D - Trip Advisor
    We really enjoyed our lunch and what the prix fix menu had to offer. We will definately dine again! Diner on Open Table
    When we coming to downtown, listen TSO concert, or see Ballet or opera performance, we always visit your restaurant, our favorite place. We like all kinds of pizza, the most tasty and delicious, compare with other place. We like public, who siting surround us, we like so much this place. We come sometimes with our daughters and their boyfriends. We definitely recommend this place to our friends. Thank you very much for amazing atmosphere, which you feel every time of our visit.
