Who’s Behind it
Co-chefs (and partners in life) Miran Won and Kevin McGill.

Why We Love it Already
This intimate little neighbourhood Italian joint is run completely by its owners — Kevin McGill works the open kitchen while Miran Won works the floor — allowing diners to feel like they’re guests at the very best kind of private dinner party. Accordingly, the food is made with love and a whole lot of skill, with house-made pasta dishes topped with surprisingly complex and flavourful sauces forming the bulk of the menu. Everything, from the exquisite brown-sage-butter gnocchi, to the “Heavy Kevy’s” meatballs pomodoro, hits that sweet spot between comfort and luxury; it’s like what a nonna would make, but with a chef’s refined touch. Don’t overlook the fresh bread or tiramisu: both are made in-house, and it shows.
