I went to Pub Italia for the 1st time last week and wasn't disappointed. They have a great selection of beer and really good Italian food that just happens to be in a pub setting. I ordered a beer and and their 7 sins pizza which was delicious with my only 1st world complaint being that I prefer a thinner... More

Pub Italia seems to have the largest selection of import beers in the city. In fact, their "beer bible" is a task to go through, but fun if you want to go through hundreds of beers from all over the world while sipping on one of their recommended drafts :) Beers or food at Pub Italia is pricey though.

We went there with my niece and her family. They go there a lot so were familiar with the food, beverages, and atmosphere. It is not inexpensive, but a good place for a special occasion. They have a book called the bible for their beer selections, which are extensive and from around the world. As the name would suggest, the... More

On Saturday 25 Oct 2014, four of us visited Pub Italia on Preston St; our first visit in a couple years. Upon opening the menu, we All gasped at the prices. We are in our mid-50's and are financially comfortable, however we could not believe the prices glaring at us from the menu. All four of us agreed "There's no... More

Great atmosphere and great friendly service, but the food was just average. We all ordered "fancy coffee" at the end, and it was not the quality you would ecppect in an Italian restaurant.

If your beer menu is thicker than your dinner menu, perhaps you have an interest in beers of the world. They have an amazing selection of beers both bottled and draught. Quite surprising is that they also serve the beers with the associated glassware. The food is mediocre. I would not recommend anything more than snacks while on the patio.... More

If you like an incredible selection of international beers, beautiful atmosphere and decor, great food, and stellar service, then you can't miss out on Pub Italia. It's centrally located in the beautiful neighbourhood of Little Italy, the servers are friendly and knowledgeable, and best of all they bring you the "Beer Bible" so you can choose from hundreds of beers...

I was looking for a brewery or bar with a large selection of beer and I found this place. Lots of choices of beers both on tap and bottles. Food was average. Slightly bland but good portions. Recommended to them that they create some type of sampling option so you can order like 8 five ounce beers like I've seen... More

Went with a group for a dinner birthday celebration. The ambience is cozy and fun with each area having it's own theme. The main area is mostly booths, the "Abbey" room looks like a church since it's furnished with salvaged pews, etc. The beer list is immense - they call it "the beer bible" - and they had local cider...

Had a great night out on our trip to Ottawa. Pub Italia serves up a great menu and an amazing beer list. I think they serve 100+ kinds of beers.
