(Ottawa, Canada) • An absolute gem of a place. Authentic Italian dessert and take-out dishes and the best sandwiches in the city. A total must! The high praise of this establishment is totally warranted.
Ambiance: Family-run corner store, fairly big. The times I went there they were always busy, and there always a line but it moves very fast. The menu is on the board behind the counter. There is a section for groceries as well as one for desserts and they make fresh big sandwiches on spot at surprisingly low prices.
Service: Friendly, fast and extremely efficient. I love how they make you feel like you are part of their family, they are so friendly and want to make sure you leave the store satisfied.
Cleanliness: The counter and the store in general seem to be kept clean.
Food wait time: It’s amazing how fast you get your food despite the fact you are in line with a bunch of people of you! These guys are fantastic!
Food presentation: The cannoli looked fresh and very tasty! The sandwiches are huge and thick!
Taste: The best cannoli in town! The filling is so creamy and sweet. The crust is not flaky or hard, it’s just right, I will be ordering again. My husband had the Alexi’s Diavolo and he loved it!! They are very generous with the meat!
Price: Affordable. Worth every cent for the quality and quantity, especially the sandwiches.
