When this Italian restaurant moved into Redwater Rustic Grille’s former space in Aspen Woods, it also inherited the restaurant’s beautiful patio that overlooks a neighbourhood pond. The 50-seat patio is the perfect spot to tuck into some freshly made pasta and sip on a glass of wine.

You may be tempted to sit inside this beautifully designed restaurant and event space, but this summer is the perfect opportunity to grab a seat on its lovely new patio.

When Local 510 was the restaurant in this spot, the patio was fenced off from the sidewalk by walls. The space now belongs to Lulu Bar, and the new Pacific-inspired restaurant has changed things up. There’s still plenty of seating on this patio, which runs along the south and west walls of the restaurant. But while the patio section on the west side of the building is a little more secluded, there are no longer walls separating the patio on the south side from the sidewalk. On nice days, the restaurant also opens up the street-facing garage doors, which almost gives the entire restaurant an alfresco dining vibe.
