This Italian restaurant is located on King Street (between John and Peter) where a bunch of little restaurants and pubs are located.  The decor of the restaurant was quite appealing, and we were seated at a little private booth which gave us a great overall view of the whole restaurant.  We ate pretty early so the restaurant was still very empty, but it quickly filled up when the clock clicked 7:00pm.

The waitress was very pleasant and recommended us her favorite dishes.  Our meals started off with a potatoe + rosemary loaf served with homemade humus which didn't taste as good as I anticipated.  We ordered the calamari (highly recommended by the waitress), but found it burnt and dry.  We then ordered two half-sized pastas (the ravioli and the spaghetti), and was really disappointed with the size.  The flavors were okay, but I wouldn't say it was amazing.  The pizza was probably the most tasty part of the meal, the crust was crispy and the prosciutto and potato gave it a great flavor and texture.  However, it was a little burn on one side which was a bit disappointing.

Some of the dessert looked rather appealing, but it was very pricy so we didn't order any. 

Overall, the meal was okay, but not as good as we've expected.  One thing to note, if you are paying with your credit card.. PLEASE BE AWARE.  They changed the amount of tips we paid (no they don't use the wireless chip card machines) and we've called several times asking them to revert the charges and they basically ignored us.
