An Ottawa Pizza Lover's Institution

This is a great place for a pizza lover. The central location is good for tourists and locals are loyal to because of the reasonable prices and great pizza.

Colonnade pizza never disappoints. Whether eating at the restaurant or doing take out to sit at home in front of the telly, cp is yummy in my tummy. Delicious with a nice cold beer or a pleasant Chianti. I like the Mediterranean and a friend swears by the bacon pizza. Nothing else besides cheese and bacon. Also delightful. Too bad... More

I still love eating here and it's still #1 for me for pizza and being with family or friends. If you haven't been what are you waiting for?

Opted to have dinner at this spot because a friend raved about it. My husband and I shared a small Caesar salad and a 9" Combination pizza. It was the best pizza I've ever had! And it was certainly enough for the 2 of us to share. Even the small Caesar was plenty for the 2 of us. The entire... More

On a tip from a local I went to the Colonnade Pizza restaurant and was pleasantly surprised. The Colonnade offers amazing pizza at affordable prices. I will definitely be returning on my next visit.

They make great food as well as pizza but the pizza they make though in the top ten if... More

Have always enjoyed this pizzeria. Nothing like it in Ottawa! Been eating here with my family for 40 years. Perfect combination of sauce, crust and blend of cheeses. And there is something about their mushrooms that's just delish. The toppings are very generous, one helluva pizza! Also they have the freshest salads I have ever eaten in a resto. The... More

Came here for a birthday party. The server was good but the pizza was bland. I've been to the one on bank was not impressed. This one ain't any better. We ordered a Mediterranean pizza and didn't taste like nothing. I had an Italian salad before that and it was good. But the pizza was almost $30.00 for too much... More

This is my husband's favourite place to eat in Ottawa! He loves their pizza and I like it too. Once in awhile we will switch to one of the other italian dishes on the menu and have not been disappointed. This is an old standard that has not changed in eons and that is part of the charm for us.

Really, it is the best. Their "combination" is a Winnipeg combo! Simple and unpretentious but the food great. They don't deliver but if you work downtown, picking one up for takeaway on the way home is the way to go. They toast the cheese until it is slightly crispy and that might be why it is so good - adds... More
