Good "New World" Trattoria

I grew up in the area and have watched Preston Street evolve over the last 50 years. Da Sergio has been around for 20+ years and you either love it or not. My wife and I love it. The portions are fair - this isn't an East Side Marios - but they are more than enough to fill my belly... read more

I visited this restaurant with 3 friends, looking for some good authentic Italian food. I will say that we found exactly what we were looking for. The service was good and the food was prepared in a reasonable amount of time considering how great the quality of the food was. I had the braciole, with side vegetable which tasted very... More

Veal scallopini with spinach 3 small thin medallions with blah spagheti & tomato sauce under sized portion . They will not substitute sauce or ingredients-upcharge $5-that alone is the reason I won't return.One owner server for the room. As previous reviewer we had a very hard time because they wouldn't split the bill for each couple.This caused us great embarrassment... More

I have been there with two friends for the first time but it is not the last time.... We were welcomed and served in french. They speak 3 langages. The food is more than excellent (real italian), the lamb must have been simmering for the whole day, the pasta and seafood plate is one of the best I tasted in... More

We ate at this restaurant last night. We used to live in Ottawa and are back for a visit. We had a nice table outside. It become evident at the start that if you were not a regular you did not get the attention that a customer deserves. It Is great that the regulars get attention but new visitors also... More

I have read other reviews of this place and they refer to it as dated. I thought it was comfortable. We were served by an older gentleman in a suit. He was very pleasant. we had delicious buns with olive oil and olives. I had calamari frutti which was a very large serving and very good. Next came grilled salmon... More

We had a coupon for buy one get one free! The chicken parm with alfredo pasta is delicious! The décor is outdated but the service was friendly. We would return if we had another coupon, the menu is a bit overpriced. Overall enjoyable experience!

The atmosphere is warm and the service is great. The food in general lacked full taste that I expect from Italian food. Maybe they ran out of seasoning this night. We were served fresh bread and olives in a balsamic and oil dressing that was enjoyed .I was looking forward to our dinner but it was only ok.The salad and... More
