Need to Know … from Devour! The Food Film Fest Executive Director Michael Howell: “Rob Gentile's empire expands with this beautiful restaurant with impeccable service and comprehensive (albeit pricey) wine list. We had the full crudo di mare platter, several delicious pastas and the house knew we were a table of three chefs and so treated us to a selection of impeccable desserts (the zeppole with pistachio cream was a standout).”

Food.ee’s Chief Food Officer Moez Kassam says: Taking coastal seafood to the next level in Canada. Spectacular dishes combined with traditional favourites.”

Fine-dining aficionado Howard Levitt: “The best of the Buca group, with wonderful raw and cooked seafoods made in unusual ways that bespeak the best of Italy. Quite unlike the Italian offerings anywhere else in this country.”

Judge Josh Josephson says: The very best Italian-influenced seafood restaurant.”
