Going for my first time Friday night. Anybody know if they have a dress code? At 20 below one must know these things.

    1. You'll be in Yorkville, I'd go with the higher end of smart casual.

      And let us know how it is :)

      1. yeah casual.... the decor is like a victorian-style house turned into restaurant.
        I went there for a wedding shower about one month ago. It was delicious from what i remember. I loved the pizza bruschetta - complimentary appetizer. I had the breaded chicken breast in a rosemary hazelnut was tasty, could have done with a better side then the bland veggies. The pasta dishes were also well-liked by others.

        1. Thanks for the warning, Pancake. In my search for a pure southern Italian resto (not Italian with southern dishes) east of Spadina I stumbled across this place. Admittedly I find the steamed veggies with everything off-putting. Willing to try if the pasta & seafood dishes are so good as to make the steaming forgiveable. Better be since I and my poor frozen legs will miss my jeans.

          Will do, NovoCuisine.

          1. It's pretty laid back. I've eaten there many times, and worn anything from jeans and a casual shirt to a suit.

            In all my visits I've only ordered from the menu twice. Pick one of the specials; they'll let you change it however you'd like. Failing that, I found both the linguine di mama ninetta and the sausage & quail plate (back when I still ate meat...sigh...) to be excellent.

              Thank you, thank you, ooooh thank you. I was hoping you'd pop up since you seem to be a semi-regular there. Thanks for the food advice as well. I tend to stick to the specials when I go to such places as Fusilli. Keeps it fresh & exciting that way. If hubby & I ever run into you and the wife please let me buy you a scotch. You saved me from freezing.
