Excellent Location.

I have eaten at this restaurant 3 times, and have ordered the same thing all three times. First time salad, chicken parm, wine and bread were all excellent which caused me to return on my second (business) trip a month later. Imagine my surprise when nothing looked OR tasted the same as my... read more

We had dinner at the bar because the place was packed. Our bartender/server was very knowledgable about the wine selection. The food was great including the salad, antipasta and dinner. I highly recommend the Pear, Brie and Prosciutto!

Started at the bar for a drink and caprese salad while I waited for my dinner companion. Great bartender, lovely hostess and service. The wine list is extensive and they deserve the three glasses they got from The Wine Spectator. There's even some first growth '82 Bordeaux's kicking around for those with deep pockets. We had mussels Provençal, margarita pizza... More

This is your average italian-inspired place, with a hint of pretend "hypeness". The menu has a very italian accent which is great. However, the food is mostly bland and not to italian standards at all. Expect to get food that seems industrialized - no character at all. The ambiance and staff attitudes seem to be all coming from a staged... More

We had a little of everything. Bread they start with was super fresh and warm. Pizzas were amazing. Pastas great. Desserts great. Service great. And best of all, sane prices. This is a must for dinner. The previous night in Ottawa we ate at Hys and our bill was 4 times as much and left much more satisfied here.

We sat on the main floor. Felt like we were in a sardine can. To many tables and no room to breath. Food (Steak) was excellent but would have appreciated a bit more breading room. If you like a bit of elbow room ....Think about elsewhere.

I met with an associate for dinner at Vittoria Trattoria and we were very happy with the meal and the service. Neither was exceptional but both more than acceptable. I would definitely return. Small restaurant and reservations would be recommended. ATB LIG

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.
