My boyfriend and I went here for our 11th month, and I would say that it's the most romantic dinner date that we've ever been in. Everything just sums up into a beautiful, lovable aura: the food, the music, the ambience, the staff. It was a particularly fun wine night for the both of us, and we wish to come... More

Great ambiance and service, this restaurant offers a good selection of Italian food. Our waitress was outstanding, and was very knowledgeable as she guided us through the menu. Nice selection of antipasti, pastas and meats. Will definitely go back.

My wife and I enjoyed yet another excellent meal last evening at IbN. We were late making a reservation so waited until 8:30 to get a table. It was worth the wait. The caprese salad (chopped, rather than sliced, tomatoes on creamy mozzarella) was outstanding. I had the pollo marsala which was done to perfection. The service, as always, was... More

We were looking for a place to host a lovely meal for a party of seven......five from Saint John and two from the USA. Our first choice was Italian by Night and they pulled out all the stops for us. The service was impeccable and the food was plentiful and tantalizingly delicious..... We were very pleased with the impression that... More

Enjoyed a wonderful dinner and evening. Our group of six tried six different entrees and we were all very pleased. The food was even better than we had expected and the service was excellent. We had a nice wine, too. The restaurant was full, but not noisy, so conversation was easy -- even at the community table where we sat.... More

I returned despite my first visit being mediocre at best. Disappointed yet again. I asked the waitress if the pasta dish was considered a main despite being labelled primi since I was hungry. She said yes... But it was a very small portion. Others with us felt the same ... Smallish pasta, dried out pork and would it hurt to... More

We always have a great time and a great dinner at Italian by Night. We are looking forward to the opening of this restaurant at the new location on Germain Street, but plan to have at least one more meal at the current location on King Street before they move. The food is always excellent and the service is very... More
