      Once for a large party that began with hors d'oeuvres, which ended up being the best part of the meal. The actual dinner was just ok and I would probably only go again as an invited guest and wouldn't choose to dine there myself. The service and staff however were very nice and professional.

        they tend to cater to the tourist, out of towners and certain groups.
        the meal i had a few years wasnt too memorable. it wasnt bad just not worth the coinage.
        service can be good there. but 'selectively' good imho.

          Really like La Buca, and La quercia. To impress oot guests Il giardino, consistently some of the best Italian in the city

          In Vancouver, my new fav is Lupo. Also had great food at Cibo a little while ago.
