Hearing about this legendary place for so many years has had me place this
restaurant on my "must go to" list before I die.
First off... the phone number for this listing is incorrect!!! It is 604-299-6636.
Second....be prepared to wait!!!! It is obvious from all the reviews that this is
the norm for this restaurant and patrons should not be surprised or annoyed
about this fact.
Third.....the restaurant has a standing policy if your party is NOT completely
there to be seated right away the you will NOT be given a table. If you have
a party of 10 and only 9 people are there they will make an exception but if
you are a party of 10 and only 7 or 8 are there you will have to wait until your
party is complete.
All pasta dishes are $14.95, other priced dishes are marked on the menu.
You have many choices of sauces to choose from. The sauces are divided
into 4 sections (red, white, clear, seafood) and within each section there are
6-9 different types of dishes.
Risotto is available. 3 types of desserts (cheesecake, tiramisu, i can't
remember the 3rd). Good variety of wine choices.
We were a party of 8 adults and 2 children.
We were a full party at 7pm and seated within 15 minutes.
We ordered the 3 appetizers. One soup. 5 different pasta dishes. One
cheesecake for the kids.
The pasta portions are huge for one person. Almost anything can be added
to the dish if you have a special hankering for something (for a nominal fee).
I gave the food only a 3 because I am of the opinion that we are all pasta
"chefs". We all have a certain way that we like our pasta and sauces. So if
you have a certan way you like your pasta let the server know.
Everyone in our group liked the dishes.
Everyone said they would go back and eat there again.
And I think I saw Anton!!!! ;)
