Good Food, Good Service

We made our reservation the day before. You will need a reservation most times on the weekend for sure. It's very popular and it was indeed full when we were there.

The atmosphere is very relaxed and inviting and the staff is welcoming and friendly. It is a great way to spend your evening dining. The food is fresh and well prepared. Try the Chef's daily surprise.

Perfect city restaurant, staff provided a great veal recommendation that was superb. Fun atmosphere. A big walk up the hill from the parking area to eat, but nice walk down after dinner

Based on reviews we had been looking forward to trying this place so went with out of town friends. Service was excellent throughout the meal. We had the bruschetta which was just okay - I've had much better elsewhere - and it was pricey. There were no dishes such as veal marsala or chicken piccata on the menu. I have... More

Thank you for visiting Italian by Night (IbN)! I truly love receiving reviews both great and indifferent. A quick walk through Tuscany.... IbN's spring menu set-up is similar to what you would find in Tuscany, Italy. Antipasti (appetizer) Primi (pasta) Secondi (main protein, which is celebrated on it's own) Contorni (side vegetable dish) Dolce (dessert) Our goal was to bring... More

The lasagna was amazing and large enough for two people. We had the meatballs to start and they were delicious too. Good wine selection. The only thing we didn't care for was that we sat at a two-top near the kitchen and wait staff kept bustling by. So it wasn't ideal. Definitely make a reservation before coming here though. Great...

Perfection! Great atmosphere, the service is above and beyond and our app, main and of course our drinks were all to die for. This was our second visit and our experience was consistent. An authentic Italian experience, would recommend to anyone.

We had an amazing feast the other weekend and were blown away by the service and true italian experience at Italian by Night. The complimentary champagne for our anniversary was a nice touch and the food was phenomenal in taste, presentation and value. I would highly recommend stopping in!

Each February, Uptown Saint John has Chop Chop, our version of Restaurant Week. My husband and I dined at Italian By Night on our own on Wednesday night, and it was so good that we gathered up a friend and dined there again on Saturday night. Excellent food, atmosphere and service. Can't wait to go back!!

Love this place during the day as the deli, amazing. But ate here awhile ago at night and ordered the spinach stuffed cannelloni. It had more spinach stuffed into it than I have ever seen, but it was all dried out. Like eating a giant plate of way way over cooked then dried out spinach. I had a huge pile... More

This venue has been very good on an ongoing basis. Food and service is always great with a pleasing atmosphere as well. Seating is limited but this benefits those that get in. A gluten free menu is available, sadly no cider is on offer. Over the last couple of years, this place has not disappointed.
