“Beer heaven”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

If we hadn't ordered the greasy appetizer sampler platter, this place would have been a solid five star. Come if you're thirsty and in the mood for adventure. I can't speak for other menu items, but what we ordered was no different than greasy spoon appetizers made in a factory far away and deep fried from frozen. Still - worthwhile for the beers!

“Beer Bible”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

The best selection of beers in Ottawa! I love trying something different every time I visit.
To eat I highly recommend the mussels.

“Interesting decor...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

I've been here about two or three times now. Food has always been good. But I've mostly only tried their pizzas. Of course a fav of this place is their beer bible. The outside seating area is nice, albeit next to a busy road. And the inside is quite unique. Irish pub/Medieval monastery.

The food is average to good, but the beer selection is awesome. The decor is well worth the visit. Good service, nice ambiance.

“Wonderful Beer selection”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

My first time in Ottawa's Little Italy and my colleague suggested we try Pub Italia. Great choice! From the welcoming ladies at the reception desk, to the fantastic Beer Bible (menu), to the delicious pastas, Pub Italia was a winner. The Pub has an incredible beer selection from around the world and we selected some of the best Canadian microbrews I've ever had. The food menu has a great selection of pastas and pizza, we went with the Italian Sausage with our choice of pasta, and were very pleased. The service was friendly and the ambiance fun! A great place to park for a fun evening.
