My friends and I have been coming here for three years from Carleton and will definitely be returning for many years to come! A truly unique decor and atmosphere, Pub Italia shouldn't be missed. The Beer Bible is a cult favourite, their draughts are never lacking in flavour or clarity. Although I've sampled many things on the menu, my absolute... More

I think I would give this place a 1/5 for food but the service was pleasant so I scored it an overall 2. I had a pollo pizza which was not that good. The onions should have been fried before putting them on the pizza. This one was also lacking sauce. My wife's salad was drizzled with dressing that was... More

An absolutely wonderful Italian restaurant to celebrate a birthday for my gdaughter. The prices are reasonable, the daily special is $20.50. One of the few places in the world where I have had properly prepared Calamari (which if cooked just a touch too long becomes tough). Birthday cake and candles was included, service was excellent, décor was wonderful renaissance Italian,... More

Amazing beer selection, delicious food and excellent service. We sat outside and enjoyed beer and an early dinner. The prices were very reasonable and the atmosphere was great. The building has all these hidden pieces of art that meld religion, folklore and alcohol for an interesting visual experience. The pub is located in Little Italy, which is a wonderful part... More

Huge beer menu!! Looks like a bible. We wanted to experience Little Italy and this pub looked busy. It is kind of a cross between Irish and Italian but it works.

Located in Little Italy, which is an interesting place to visit on its own. Great patio area for summer dinning. Indoors has booths. The pub décor is characterized in the style of the old Benedictine Monasteries. If you dine on the patio be sure to go on a tour of the pub. There are many, many different beers to choose... More

The place is amazing! Beer bible is so creative and the staff are super friendly. Having tried most of the places on Preston, I'd say this is one of the best.

By far my favourite pub, wide selection of beer and the pub has a great buzz/feel to it. The food is mouth watering although a bit pricy. I bring all my guests from out of town to this pub!
