If you are looking for a street with a wide variety of restaurents you can't do better than Prestion. It also has a remarkable hardware store where you can make great discoveries. Service is generally good everywhere. I really enjoy Il Primo restaurent. I am becoming a regular there.

Too many over sauced quasi Italian recipes in the restaurants and not at all cheap - but nothing in Ottawa is. There are some good restaurants but haven't found one recently.

This is just a great walk. The street has been refurbished and there are so many great coffee shops and places to buy cheese like Luciano foods that it makes your spin. Luciano foods has hams hanging and wonderful Italian breads as well as cheeses etc...like stepping into Italy. Preston street is very vibrant, alive and a lot of fun

Alot of people know about Preston Street and viva italia and my sister and I went to a great restaurant there that my father visited before and I believe this was among the first times I ate mussels and it was quite good.

It's out of the way, for us, so we've only been there 3 times since we discovered it a few years ago. But the food service and wine menu are all simply excellent! You cannot go wrong with this cozy restaurant with the fresh pasta!

Other than StoneFace Dolly's, there's not much interesting about Preston Street although the potential is there.

Italian street with quite a few Italian restaurants where the food is really good. It is a nice walk to check out the shops and stores.
