We ordered a Combo and a Vegetarian. Both were piping hot and delicious. Some of us have been going to the Metcalfe Street site since its opening in1967 - 47 years of great pizzas !

Colonnade Pizza, the Metcalfe site, still offers the best pizza in Ottawa. I love the fact that they offer a "personal" size pizza, perfect for me. Normally in most restaurants, my husband and I share a medium pizza, but at the Colonnade Pizza, I can get the personal size at a reasonable cost, so I can choose my own toppings.... More

My favorite pizza in Ottawa! All about the food. Nothing fancy. Just a great tasty pizza. Went with my two sons today for lunch. It was their first time there and they absolutely loved the meat lovers pizza. Very fast service - about 10 minutes to get our food. Can be quite busy on week-ends but service remains fast and...

We go at least once a year for pizza at the Colonnade. Have been going there for years and years. Our recent visit confirmed that is still the best pizza in Ottawa. The pizza had a very good crust with delicious cheese going right to the edge of the crust. Very tasty! The Italian salad was not as flavorful as... More

The Colonnade restaurant has been an Ottawa fixture since the 60's - not much has changed inside including the best pizza in Town! Service is excellent and the prices reasonable. This is pizza heaven - the way pizzas should be done!

Food: everybody liked their meals, either pasta or pizza, and desserts. Atmosphere: pretty crowded and noisy. It's not obvious but there is free parking at the back. (I got scared off by the mechanical arm and wasted $4 paying at another lot.) Service: our waiter was good Price: average Overall: I would return.

We were having a particularly hectic day at work, with no hope of a lunch break, so a coworker ordered a pizza from Colonnade. We are downtown and it arrived within a half hour at most. I quickly grabbed a piece and was highly impressed by the crust, copious toppings, and perfect amount of sauce and cheese. You'd expect a... More

I had never been there before and thought I would give it a try. Well I will not be going back after this experience. For a place that has been in business since 1967 you would think they would know how to make good pizza. Not the case here on Bank street anyway. It was disgusting, and all the edges... More

We frequently pick up pizza from this location as it has very good gluten-free options. However, I will not be doing that much longer unless the service improves at this location. It is very good service at the Merivale location that we also use. At the Metcalfe location, the man who works the front desk is unfriendly and surly. For... More
