It just seems that every Italian restaurant in Canada, except for a hand few, do not know modern Italian cuisine. This place, the food is great and service ok, but, it is just boring with menu and does not model what Italy has to offer right now. Had the Caprese salad to start, thought it was good, but no overwhelmed... More

This is probably one of my favourite restaurants in Ottawa. Food is always fresh, atmosphere is good (occasionally a little noisy), they have a cellar you can dine in (for a premium). Excellent pastas, pizza.

When the to the Riverside resto to have dinner with friends. Great visually appealing space but food was disappointing. Both the appetizer (calamari) and main (seafood pasta) were over cooked and quite bland. I would however give this restaurant another try.

This restaurant is the perfect place to visit on a cold Ottawa night. It is always crowded and the tables are close together but that did not interfere with a sense of coziness and good conversation. The food was outstanding and generous! I highly recommend the garlic mussels and the gorgonzola tortellini. The truffle cannelloni my partner had was excellent... More

Very classy and modern Italian restaurant. Perfect for a special date or even a birthday dinner. Several locations, one being in the heart of the bumping Byward Market.

We were a group of four, I had made a reservation for 18:00, we showed-up and were immediately seated. As we sat down, I realized the room was extremely hot, to the point uncomfortable. I checked the wine and beer list, decided on a beer and some wine. Next thing we know, the server brings the wine and serves us... More

Was here recently with family from out of town. They had been staying downtown and had eaten at this location a couple of nights before. We were able to meet them for supper on the weekend and they insisted on going back here again. Our meal that night confirmed why. It's been a couple of years since I dined here... More

I had heard of this restaurant and the reviews had been good, but expected a little bit more. The décor was amazing with the old stone walls but the layout of the tables and chairs were quite tight. As well, climbing up the steep stairs are easy when arriving, but after a couple of glasses of wine, they can be... More

I visited Vittoria Trattoria for lunch several times this past summer. I found the service to be excellent but the food lacking-flavour and presentation.
