Had tea in this Italian. Staff very welcoming and service was good. Good portion size and pizza from an authentic wood fired oven all washed down with a bottle of wine from the Niagara area. Free iced water and bread and butter also provided.

I've been coming to this restaurant for 15 years - it was first suggested to me by a colleague whom I worked with all those years ago. I took my girlfriend to this restaurant on our first date 15 years ago, I proposed to her at this restaurant many years later, and we still make a point of visiting Vittoria... More

Great food or a place to drop in to & sit at the bar. Wide range of wine & spirits at very fair prices & great coffee ...as good as you get in Italy! Located at The Market area.

Went for the first time with my stepdad and was really impressed. Great service and great food. Really cozy and romantic atmosphere. Loved their bread with the dipping oil.

The wait staff treats young couples not ordering wine/drinks like garbage. The pizza is so delicious and the chicken parm is my boyfriend's favourite restaurant meal in Ottawa, but if you're not ordering alcohol, the waiters are not only rude, but take 20+ minutes to bring water, the bill, etc. Unfortunately, unless you want to be treated like a second-class...

We come to this restaurant every time we are in Ottawa. The location is great, the ambiance is busy, romantic but not stuffy, and the food is very good to excellent. I leave feeling happy with the world - what better recommendation can you have?

Six of us over visiting Canada from little 'Owd England' on the hunt for Beaver Tails in Ottawa.... Cocktails beforehand, you must try the special 'SOS' (Campari, Prosecco soda with a big slice of orange). Escargot from the starters were delicious and served with corn muffin. The veal chop cooked MR was spot on as was the gnocchi it was... More
