I have had better pizza so I was disappointed. My husband and our friend had the special beef tenderloin which was over cooked. Drinks watered down. Overall experience was so so. I don't like going to a restaurant where I can cook the food better. The only positive was the sweet potato and squash soup, it was very good. Not... More

This is one of my lunch favorites. The food is excellent. I particularly like the pollo salad and there is usually an interesting special or two. The menu is not extensive but there is enough variety and what they do they do very well. It is a small cosy place with good service. Best of all, unlike many places, they... More

Our visit to Caffe Mio in Ottawa didn't get off to a good start. We had a reservation for two at 8 pm and walked in the doors five minutes before. The place was packed and the waitress told us to perhaps have a walk outside for 10mins and come back. She didn't offer us to sit down at the... More

It was our first time at Caffe Mio and it will not be our last! The service is very friendly/attentive and the atmosphere for dinner is romantic and calm. It's a small restaurant so making a reservation is recommended. The food was awesome-cooked to perfection and presented very well. The Chicken Al Sole is amazing. Very happy with our experience...

Had a wonderful meal yet again at Caffe Mio last night. The food and the company were excellent. Unfortunately the $15 certificate that was emailed to me because my birthday is in October (which I could not print) wasn't honoured because although the waitress read it off my phone, she would not allow me to use it. I told her... More

This is a little place on the strip in westboro, you could pass it pretty easily, but you shouldn't. The atmosphere is great. Staff is nice, food is really great. Have been here twice. Small menu, packed with great food, done the right way. Go and enjoy

My Dad and I go out for lunch once a week...many have recommended Caffe Mio...and with good reason. Our lunch was fresh and delightful, service was attentive and friendly. The soup was tasty and the beet salad...honestly left me moaning...it was sooo good. Price was extremely reasonable.

Our go-to favourite Italian Restaurant with a lively atmosphere and great food. Fantastic patio for those warm summer evenings. It should be in a movie, it's so classic. Secluded enough for lovers and still comfortable enough for families. Love it!

Three of us were at Caffe Mio on Monday night (June 10th) and as is normal in Ottawa these days, the weather was somewhat questionable. We had a reservation, but when we arrived, we queried on a table outdoors. The waitress was hilarious in subtly advising a seat inside (alter ego is Stormy Weather apparently!) she suggested we eat inside... More
