Pub Italia was bustling during our visit. Located in Ottawa's Little Italy, the decor includes a renovated chapel with a tongue-in-cheek religious theme throughout. Service was good and the pasta & mussels were great. The pizzas were average. Great for a fun pasta night out!

Lunch with a couple of friends. There is a good patio, with options of on-sidewalk or in quieter courtyard. Service was friendly. Soup was excellent, but skip the pizza which had cardboard instead of crust.

Went yesterday with some friends for a quick bite to eat and some drinks. The server was good to start but was definitely rushing us. I ordered the ceasar salad and a half classico pizza. The ceasar salad tasted like bag salad but whatever and then the pizza came out. it tasted like cardboard, grocery store freezer pizza. I'm so... More

Visited this place last week for lunch. Couldn't decide what to have so I just had a half pizza. While it was pretty good, the portion was very small. I would like to visit again and try something else to get a better sense of the food here.

Horrible over priced pizza. Whiskey shots so small you mistake them for empty glasses BUT, at least it was expensive

We ate here on the Labour day long weekend. We chose to eat outside, because the weather was fantastic. They have an extensive selection of beers so it's a great place to go if you are are beer aficionado. A few in our group of six tried a new beer they'd never had before. The food was very tasty. Everyone... More

Pub Italia boasts Ottawa's largest selection of beer, with new special ones always coming through! They have them all organized by country in the "Beer Bible" which fits the whole theme of the restaurant. The atmosphere and restaurant design/theme are very unique and has a great charm. I love the Italian/Irish mix - Italian food and the Irish love of... More
