Foursquare Tips

  • At the helm of this Italian family-style restaurant is chef Jean Christophe Poirier. Welcome them to the neighbourhood and dive into their fresh-made pasta delights. Gluten-free pasta is available.
  • As long as you are willing to commit to 2 glasses, the will open any wine on the menu and sell it by the glass.
