This place was always one of my favorite Italian places. Foods good and building ambience good when it’s not over packed. But last time I was here with my wife the service was snobby and left a lot to be desired. I hope someone just...More

Our mouths water at the thought of the Alla Nonna and Funghi e Panceta! Their spinach and artichoke dip is also amazing. We finish the night with a creme brûlée. The building is beautiful and atmosphere is lovely. Highly recommend!

Ho-hum, not memorable. Soup was lukewarm, not hot. Too much dressing on salad. Good location, but you can find a better Italian dinner elsewhere. We were disappointed & would not return.

Vitoria Trattoria is my go to restaurant in downtown Ottawa. I always have a great meal there and the pizza Margarita is the best outside of Naples. There three locations but my favourite is the market because it has the best ambiance.

We went to the Byward Market a chilly noon and found this great and inviting restaurant with an open fire pizza oven to spread the warm atmosphere. I had an outstanding veal parmegiano as a main course, that was served piping hot. But everything we...More

This is the kind of restaurant I enjoy, in a culturally rich part of town in a venue that has a personality all of it's own. We dined upstairs next to a window overlooking William Street which added to the quaintness of the experience. You...More
