I've heard of this place before, and when I saw it came up on Groupon, I decided I was gonna give it a try sometime. Just happens that one of my friend is leaving the country, so we came here.
The service is quite friendly from the moment we stepped in. It's a really nice and cozy, environment. It's a Weds night and not many people were here. Maybe that explains the prompt service all the way, and the server gave us some recommendations as well as introducing some of the dishes that came.
We ordered Quattro di Bruschetta, which features bread served in 4 different toppings, pesto, olive, parmesean, and tomato. I was definitely pleased. Now comes the Steamed Salt Spring Island Mussels. This, my friend, got both of us amazed. It is fresh, it is properly seasoned in the tomato broth, it is plain amazing. Best mussels I have ever had.
Then comes the pasta. Spaghettini Frutti di Mare features 3 kinds of seafood, and I loved the baby squid, fresh and cooked right to the point. My friend went with recommended Pappardelle with Whole Roasted Duck Leg, duck was properly cooked, meat falls from the bone easily, and has great taste to it. I would recommend not having the parmesean with the duck though, but it might just my personal preference.
Overall it was definitely a bang for the buck. Even without the Groupon we find the pricing reasonable. I would definitely be back for their neighbourhood specials.
