Great!!

We went to the Richmond rd location in Ottawa, Ontario. It was very nice...good food. Great service. Servings were big. Pizza was good and big for one person. All in all everything was good.

i felt compelled to write my first review after that horrible meal. My brother and sister and I met in Ottawa for our annual visit. My brother and I ordered the swordfish. I was shocked after my first bite. It tasted like it was a frozen, cheap fillet from some big box store, had been prepared (poorly, no taste) days... More

Our server was excellent but the noise level was so high that we couldn't hear each other. That was always the problem with the Glebe location but I was hoping Westboro would be better - not. The food was very uninspired particularly the Caesar salad. Won't be on our list of go- to restaurants.

I went here very excited with high hopes and was let down. The service was excellent, the food was just ok. I was extremely disappointed that there was no bruschetta in an Italian restaurant since it is my favorite. I liked the meat and cheese board they had and felt like it was very authentic. The main meal was just... More

Food: Our meals were OK but not that much out of the ordinary. On the positive side, dishes are served hot as pastas tend to cool down so fast. All three of us had different dishes. One penne dish with chicken had huge piece of meat (which was appreciated). Another person had the penne pasquale which was much spicier than... More

Good, albeit greasy, calamari rings. One order enough for two people. Veal parmigiana didn't taste anything, loaded as it was with nondescript molten cheese, and a side order of al dente spaghettini, unfortunately smothered in some bland tomato sauce, without any seasoning. Stuffy, comfort food at best! Chicken tortellini, same bland treatment, nothing to write home about. Both main dishes... More

One of our favourite Westboro restaurants, Fratelli's, has been in it's new location for over a year and a half now, and it is always good! We usually dine later and the service is always attentive but not rushed, food options are great and they have brought back a few old favourites to the menu (like mussels) over these months....

The space is pleasant, and the service is friendly and competent, but the food is underwhelming: adequate but nothing special. The minestrone I had was fine, but the fusilli Genovese was on the soggy side. None of us was unhappy with our meals, but no one thought it was anything special. The wine list is short but, like the food,... More

Have eaten frequently at Bank Street location for many years, as well as Kanata location. Food is generally OK, but tends to be salty. I usually order a daily special, finding them fresher and better prepared than other menu items. When I order a pasta item I can't often finish it, which speaks to the generous serving side. A little... More
