Great Upscale

Vittoria Trattoria has two locations and interestingly, the menu's differ slightly. Regardless, the food is absolutely delicious, specifically the pasta meals. The service is good, and the prices are comparable to other upscale restaurants.

This place is a favourite of mine - I would highly recommend it to anyone visiting Ottawa, especially given the value. With a great selection of fresh pasta, nice wines, friendly service, and central location, this place makes for a perfectly romantic place to dine. Worth checking out!

Dropped in for lunch and it did not disappoint. The octopus salad was delicious. We enjoyed two pasta dishes and a pizza. All were very good. Service was friendly and location is close to parking.

The hostess was very knowledgeable about the GF options when I was deciding if this would be the restaurant where I would have lunch. I had noted that the people sitting in the window all looked relaxed and the food looked delicious. That took me in the door to begin with. The waiter was also very knowledgeable about gluten-free options... More

This restaurant is nicely located in the Byward Market area. I took a chance on this place and walked in after spending quite some time trying to decide what would be a good place to try out for lunch in the area. I was pleasantly surprised by both the food and decor of the place. I was worried this place... More

There are so many restaurants in ByWard Market that it can be daunting for tourists. We found Vittoria Trattoria to be good quality. We didn't try the pizza which is reputed to be very good but we had two excellent veal dishes that were tasty and satisfying. Service was good and they stay open a little later. Nice ambience and...

Had a terrific meal. We ordered 2 meal size pizzas with 2 glasses of wine pairings between us and we could not finish them. It was FANTASTIC!! I had the Quattro Stagioni and my husband had the Vittoria. Both excellent but we agreed the Vittoria was the best choice. Ambiance was fantastic along with the service. Well worth going to....

We were in Ottawa for just one evening and stumbled upon this restaurant by luck. Everything was perfect for us- the location, the ambience, the service and above all the food. We wanted to share two different meals and the staff served each meal in two portions to accommodate our needs. Both meals were excellent, couldn't have asked for more!

This was our second (and last) visit to this restaurant. The pizza was overcooked and burnt on the bottom. The Caesar salad came with store bought dressing and was void of any croutons. The house salad was limp and uneatable. The veal picatta was thick and chewy. The pasta special was just ok. The acoustics are very bad resulting in... More
