As a table of 9 walk-in we had no problem getting a table at 6 pm on a Sunday....because the place was nearly empty. The staff is lovely. Let me tell you flat out, the winner is the eclectic decor, all ages thought various versions of OMG but it was entertaining. After the decor, things fall.apart. Call for our order... More

I am going to start this review off with stating that I am a maritimers. Meaning I know seafood. Pub Italia´s mussles are skdjaslkda amazing.

I always like the atmosphere at Pub italia, but my last visit has me questioning how much its worth paying for that… The service was unfriendly and slow, the prices high, and the food - calling it italian is an insult to the country! :( Read on…. Service - server was unfriendly, slow, and unwelcoming. Certainly the worst service I... More

Well a lot of fun is had which is no surprise with its wickedly large beer menu. You can have 13% german chocolate beer, light strawberri frulis or a hugh range of many other beers. The pizzas are yummy and a fun appetizer list. Staff are very friendly. Cool decor too:)

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

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.
