Our Story

We are an authentic Italian take-out restaurant located in Guelph, Ontario. We are a 5 minute drive from Guelph University and 8 minutes from downtown. We offer lunch specials for students and seniors, as well as options to satisfy the whole family.

Chef Antonella grew up in northern Italy, where the food is warm and wholesome, and the portions are rich and generous. She specializes in fresh pasta sauces and is particularly proud of her lasagna. Of course, we can’t forget about her new incredible creation: the pizza cone!

Chef Tony comes from the warm sunny region of Calabria, known for its fresh olive oil, incredible seafood, and welcoming Southern sentiment. Inspired by the Mediterranean Sea, Chef Tony’s specialties revolve around fish and fresh seafood.
This dynamic duo is able to combine recipes from the North and South to create dishes that contain aromas and flavours from all Italian regions.

Their collaboration and passion for their homeland requires them to always use fresh ingredients in order to maintain the authentic and original flavours of traditional Italian cuisine.

Great little place for fresh made Italian food.  Went in for a 1 thing and came out with a lot more.  The Veal, Meatballs and Pasta was very good.  Can’t wait to go back.

The holiday season can be stressful. I was at my favourite food place in Guelph when I noticed their holiday gift baskets. Perfect for that special someone or a family member. Come get one before it’s too late!
Stephen McLellan
Really great place! They have a freezer full of ready to cook pasta (very reasonably priced), as well as meals you can warm up. They have lots of beautiful imported Italian desserts.  They also have a small gallery featuring local artists you can peruse while you wait for your food (you can buy the art, too!). What a great idea. The staff are very friendly and accommodating. We'll be back to try the pizza next!

This place is incredible! The food was amazing. We tried the pizza cone, the veal sandwich, and the pasta of the day. We could not decide which was our favourite! We also took home a jar of fresh sauce to put on our pasta, can’t wait to try it!

This has been single handily the best Italian place I’ve been to while in Canada. It feels like I’m with my grandma back in Sicily with her famous tomato sauce. Amazing!!!!!!! Exceptional staff especially that young man named Stephen. If you get a sandwich from him it’s made with love.

The service at this place was incredible, they provided me with a very interesting and educational tour of their store. The staff was so friendly and efficient. The food was 11/10 and I'm so excited to come back, thank you so much!!!!
