We have been celebrating special occasions at this fine dining restaurant for many years. This visit was no exception, my birthday. We had asked for a window seat when the reservation was made, but were placed in a booth off at the back instead. A bit disappointing, but we knew the food was very good, so sat back and enjoyed...

This Italian restaurant is right in Byward Market. It is busy every night so make a reservation. The ambience is lovely and lively. The service very efficient and the food delicious!. I had spaghetti and meatballs infused with garlic. My wife had the carbonara pasta which was to die for! Highly recommended for a lively night out while in Ottawa.

Everything was absolutely perfect. 1. The service was amazing. I wish I knew the waiters name. He was quick, attentive, and very helpful with the menu. They gave us a wonderful table by the window overlooking the street and Byward market. 2. Appetizers: Capprese salad and Pear pancetta. Both were wonderfully presented and the taste was very well balanced. Great... More

This is not an authentic Italian restaurant. Bread tastes like it has been unfrozen. Prosciutto was supposed to be with pears but was filled with cheese. Fettuccine was drowning in cream.

We took the advice of others and made this our first stop for dinner while in Ottawa. The wood oven pizza was made to order and perfect! If you are in the Byward Market and looking for an excellent Italian Eatery with great service, try the Vittoria Trattoria!

Reading the reviews on Tripadvisor, we felt confident that we would have an enjoyable meal. The service was very good but the food was very disappointing and far from genuine Italian. We had the antipasti and it looked nothing like it. There was only two slices of Parma and four slices of soppressata, which were laid out in a pile.... More

Went for a family dinner. Had reservations for 6 people. We were seated promptly by friendly host staff. The restaurant was extremely busy but this did not detract from the friendly and efficient wait service. Our server was helpful and attentive. We ordered the duck special, curry mussels, seafood pasta, spaghetti and meatballs, carbonara, and arrabiatta. My dish was the... More

Very good food although not nearly enough garlic used in recipes. Service very good and good atmosphere. Bar area at reception too small to handle clients waiting for table . Basil infused olive oil and balsamic very good to start although bread can be warmed up to improve experience. Overall good but recipes can use more nonna's influence.

Hosted my senior staff for a XMas lunch. Firstly, they placed us in a spot that we requested and the tables already had menus and water - excellent start. Their wine cellar is well stocked, and for those who like beer, they have a few on tap. Our antipasto and meals were simply perfect. The pasta and pizzas were delicious.... More
