My friends and I had another wonderful meal at Oca Nera on Saturday night. I began with a wonderful "martini", generous and delicious!! The calamari were crispy and succulent and one of coolest presentation ever. We also had the elk carpaccio and the strega shrmp. The sauce on these shrimp is scrumptious. Our entrees were duck, lamb and a combo... More

We have eaten many times at Oca Nera and have never been disappointed. Last night was no exception. Each visit is a unique experience as the menu changes seasonally and there are always 4 or 5 specials to choose from. The food is indeed the star here prepared with pride by chef Corrado. The stuffed rabbit we had was amazing... More

Worst ever service and attitude... In short, based on the negative experience it’s not worth a long explanation. It was a dinner meeting I organized for business associates from Europe and the U.S. The attitude of our waiter set the tone of the evening… Once the orders were taken the wine was brought to the table. During the uncorking process,... More

Oca Nera is hidden away off a quiet neighbourhood. The staff, and head chef Corry are not only knowledgable in the restaurant business, you can see they truly love what they do. The menu rotates regularly with wonderful seasonal fare and delicious choices of game and seafood dishes. They are never pretentious and always gracious of your patronage- I have... More

For me Oca Nera is the gold standard against which all others are assessed. Great food with always changing menu items. A chef more concerned about giving his guests what they want rather than just cooking interests him. A super wine list covering all varietals and price points. Service that is professional but friendly and always focused on the guest... More

If only I lived closer to this luxurious, stately restaurant with its fabulous food - I'd have a permanent reservation, and probably weigh in just a little bit heavier!!! The menu is seasonal, with the exception of dishes that are always asked for - like shrimps, wrapped in pasta and crisp, tender calamari ! The very creative chefs, always feature... More

Oca Nera is a hidden gem that is tucked away behind a gas station in Woodbridge, it has an intimate and elegant atmosphere and has exceptional service. They have won the Wine Spectator Award for 2012 and the sommelier is available to make suggestions of wines that will complement your meal. My personal favourites are the Strega Shrimp and the...

We invited our best friends to what we thought was going to be a fine Italian restaurant. To begin with, the scotch was served in liquor glasses. Let's go over this one and over how poor the menu was. When we finally started with the appetizers an inexperienced waiter dropped an oil bowl on my best friend's pants. We did... More

It's hard to believe this gem of a restaurant is tucked behind a gas station. Exceptional, fresh and inspired dishes; a wine list to please any taste or bank account; personalized and knowledgeable service; quaint and warm atmosphere. I have been to this restaurant on several occasions - for business and pleasure both with friends and family. No matter what... More
