If you are a meat eater, this place is for you... They literally serve your group a platter, yes platter, of meat. I'm not even sure if they serve vegetables :)

This is the best Italian Restaurant in Hamilton. No competition. I worked here for several years when I was in university, so I can tell you first hand how clean the kitchen is and the love and care the chefs put into the food. The head chef, Mauro was trained in Italy and opened the restaurant in the 80's when he came to Canada, and still works almost every night serving up traditional dishes that have stood the test of time. When Mike and I have a date night, this is usually the place we go.

Best outdoor patio in the city! Locally sourced food with a menu that changes seasonally. Excellent brunch on the weekends.

Activities that are worth the drive
There are several gardens within the RBG. You can get a day pass and see them all. My favourite garden is the Rock Garden. It is one of the most calm and serene places in the whole city. Only a 5 min drive from the house and you transported to place with incredible beauty and serenity. https://www.rbg.ca/ https://www.rbg.ca/rockgarden

A fun experience for all ages. I've been going every year since I was a kid and now I go with my own kids. It's worth a few extra bucks to pay for the tour bus through the game reserve (so the monkey's don't rip off your wiper blades or do other damage to your car!) Make sure to catch the elephant swim time!
