My daughter and I stopped in for dinner on a Saturday night after doing a tour of Carleton all day. While it was a rainy, cold night, the market area was busy as was the restaurant. That being said, we were seated immediately. The place was warm and we were quickly tended to by our waiter. The service was quick,... More

we stopped here for lunch while touring the market. We were drawn in by the wood fire oven pizza and it was delish. We ordered a spicy pizza and the hot sauce on the side is a must try. Prompt service great servers. We sat outside to enjoy the sunshine. Nice clean area great set up. My husband and I... More

Great friendly pub with a good choice of pizzas, pastas etc. Happy hour is good with half price pizza and cheap drinks. Couldn't fault the staff or the food, the atmosphere is relaxed and the pub is well located in the Byward Markets.

If the weather suits, the outdoor seating is great. We're from the New Haven CT area where they make some of the best pizza on the planet. So, when we refer to pizza as pretty fair, that IS a compliment. We enjoyed a margarita pie. Nice thin crust with lots of mozzarella and basil. Good job guys!!

The food stands out! Service not so much. Had 2 different pizzas and left want more! Portion sizes are good (if not too large) and the flavors and style are great!! Recommend anyone that wants an authentic style pizza to go here.

Beautiful location in a historic building in the Byward Market with an outdoor patio in summer (sometimes open in shoulder seasons when it's warm enough). The Mercato pizza (prosciutto, arugula and shaved parmesan) is to die for. The pizzas are thin crust and they are generous with the toppings. There are other menu options - pasta, etc, but I always... More

A friend and I stopped in one warm fall afternoon and ordered the pitcher of red sangria. We sat on the patio of this busy market corner and thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere, the people and the sangria. The pitcher is too much for two but would generously serve four. A nice break in an afternoon of shopping!!

The service was great as five of us ordered different items on separate checks. The suggestions on the menu were fantastic and we all tried something different. The parpadelle with sausage was delicious and I had the lasagna. If you want a lighter pasta with an excellent tomato sauce this is the thing to order. It was absolutely delicious but... More

For the price of the meal I expected significantly better pizza and pasta. These prices are comparable with a downtown Toronto pizzeria but the food was a fraction of the quality. Disappointing. That said, there was nothing WRONG with the food, just underwhelming.
