  1. Not recommended. I had a horrible experience there recently.
    Horrible food. Sub standard service.

    This was during the lunch rush. Maybe if you go at a not so busy time you'll do better.

    1. Food and service is terrible at both locations dwtn.

      1. I didn't find that at all. I've enjoyed the one on Toronto Street - worked in the area up until a year ago, and ate there several times. I always liked it.

        1. Well, it's not fine dining, more like a few steps above a cafeteria, but I like it. It's cheap, noisy, cheerful and they do good simple food. They don't pretend to be anything they are not, just simple Italian food.

          1. It is really loud at lunch. too loud for me. But, the food is quite good. The service is on and off. If you get there at a decent hour, you should be good.
