Great restaurant before Tarragon Theatre, and has different weeknight specials including Tuesday free corkage on BYOW! Watch out for caffeine in Decaf coffee!
This is a perfect spot for a casual bite before a show at Tarragon Theatre – just a short walk around the corner. The waitress also offered a discount after confirming that we were attending a show. Our food was very tasty and was relatively quick. The decor and condition of the tables and chairs needs some attention. On the other hand, the two female servers were extremely attentive and good natured making up for those minor deficiencies!
This quaint restaurant is close to Casa Loma, which is why we picked it. The owner is friendly and the staff are accommodating. Gluten free pizza is as good as you’ll get and is close to the real thing. There are many creative pizza topping choices. The Mediterranean theme pervades throughout the menu, but spices are a bit lacking. Wine by the glass choices could be better. Best dish in our group was the lamb shank, very tender. Prices are reasonable.
