The downtown Brampton resto offered charming, vintage appeal and a classic menu full of delicious Italian mainstays such as spaghetti bolognese, homemade gnocchi, manicotti and veal parmigiana. It also boasts a few unique offerings such as oysters rockefeller, mushroom caps stuffed with lobster, shrimps, scallops and a rotating list of decadent specials.

However, the restaurant was forced to permanently close its doors due to a fire

This is not the way that it is supposed to end,” said Chef Massimo Dondi, the owner, on the restaurant’s Facebook page. “I would like to express my gratitude to all the costumers for coming to the restaurant over the 35 years of operation!”

The restaurant, which once offered a mixture of Northern Italian, Southern Italian, and International cuisine, shut their doors on November 2018.
