Since opening our doors in 2008, we are lucky to have grown into a community alongside our team, our purveyors, and our guests. We are grateful to have not only become a mainstay Winnipeg restaurant, but also a family within these walls.
We do think it’s time we came clean on something…When we first opened our doors on June 21, 2008 we did so with honesty and humility. Our menus were small, and great care went into the preparation of each ingredient and item. We admit, we did make a few mistakes; not least of which was pistacititos. Pistacititos was a spelling mistake on our very first menu that was quickly hidden with our explanation that “pistacititos” are in fact Sicilian pistachios. This is not correct and our sincerest apologies to everyone who tried to explain pistacititos to their neighborhood grocery clerk.
Since then, we have upped our proof reading and continue to source the best possible ingredients to prepare the best possible food. Our spirit continues to be rooted in Italian tradition and emulates Bobby’s family dinner table; loud, fun, often educational, and always accepting. We continue to honor true Italian cooking and tradition while integrating local ingredients and innovative food and drink mixing techniques. Since the days of pistachititos, our offerings have expanded and our room has changed, but our commitment to you, our guests, has not. Our team is committed to making your experience truly memorable. We want you to be regulars, to share your stories with us, and in turn maybe hear a few of ours. The most important thing for us is that with every visit you walk away with a great experience from beginning to end.
