You wouldn't expect to find a good Italian restaurant "off the beaten path" in a small town on one of the Gulf Islands. We were taken by friends and had a delightful, leisurely lunch on a sunny Saturday. Nice menu--the clams were perfect. Solid wine selection. Limited beers on tap. They were busy and service was a bit slow but we weren't in any hurry. The weather was warm enough to sit outside and enjoy the setting.

Nice menu to choose from, something for everyone. Quality ingredients. Friendly staff. Nice views on the warmed patio of the harbour and nice artwork inside

We quietly check to see if Sean is the chef of the night; if he is we book. The food is always fresh and artistically presented. Specials of the day reflect local catches and are always wonderful. The noisy fan is a distraction on windless evenings on the patio; I wish they could fix that little detail. Service is always warm and attentive. We love this restaurant

Would recommend this as a place to eat while on Salspring island.
The atmosphere is very sweet, right on the ocean, with outside seating.
Very delicious food and great service.
