    Pizza here is the real deal. Their pastas are good too! Not too crazy about breakfast cocktails though.

    Grilled chicken panini really heavy on provolone and greasy - a negative only if you're not a fan of cheesy, butteriness. The Paese Street Meat panini is a yummy, fancy hot dog - would recommend

    Paese: theatre district notable, killer starter bread, extensive wine list, authentic Italian 3/5

    Ian Thresher might just be the most approachable Sommelier in the city. Let him choose, you won't be disappointed.

    If u want ur lamb mid-rare ask for rare.. Halibut, over seasoned, service stuck in traffic.. Octopus is great! Food overall, not bad. For a new place.. Nice job.

    This place brings class to the King St restaurant row. If you like full flavour try the chicken saltmbocca. The chef takes great care in putting this dish together very well presented and so tasty

    Customers craving food just like mama used to make will eat this up, while for only a small fee, access to what will likely be an exceptional wine cellar will leave you pleasantly carefree at the end. Read more
