This postage stamp of a room seats a mere 32, its decor has an airy vibe with a dose of rec-room casual, and its menu features just 10 appetizers and six pasta dishes. J.C. Poirier, whose bare-bones Pizzeria Farina in Strathcona is always packed, looks to replicate the successful formula here with relatively straightforward dishes made with high-quality ingredients and exacting care. A simple spaghetti and tomato dish uses hand-made noodles and an authentic sauce, turning a punch line of a dish into something pure and primal. Wine by the glass isn’t quite the deal—they use those Italian bar glasses that, even when full to the brim (as ours were), hold less than your standard model—but there are steals to be had by the bottle.
