“Best pizza in Ottawa”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

Shamefully, we've lived a couple of streets away from this place and had never tried it until I spotted it in the Top 10 of Ottawa restaurants. It can't be compared to the others in the list - apples and oranges - but I can't imagine a better place of it's kind in the city. As others have commented, it's the crust and the fresh ingredients. We've been sticking with the pepperoni and you can get some crazy deals on those. But the Cumberland Special is awesome too. A Greek salad was good if, as is common in North America, a little heavy on the lettuce when I'd like prefer cucumber. It's a simple pizzeria - plastic furniture, self-serve drinks from a fridge - so don't expect fine dining. Just fine food.

“Best crust I've ever had”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013

Given the other reviews for Cumberland Pizza, I had high expectations. The service (by phone and delivery) was great -- very friendly and obviously thankful for my business. Less than 30 minutes for delivery across town, and very reasonable prices. The crust was by far the best I've ever had. The toppings were good, but nothing really special. I like some "zing" when it comes to pizza and the sauce was bland. Overall: delicious, greasy, cheesy, doughy. Great for a treat, but definitely not the top choice for the health nuts out there.

“The one and only!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2013


In my opinion Cumberland pizza is the only place to buy pizza and Greek food in the ottawa area. I guarantee that if you try the Canadian pizza you won't be disappointed. It's enough to put Gabriel's or PizzaPizza to shame.

Also the owners are very friendly and make you feel part of the family at every visit and make you feel at home with every dish. My kids love it and have become a weekly ritual for me and my family.

You have to try it, period!

Fady's the best, forget about all the rest!!!!!
