We each tried something different and everyone was blown away. Great pasta dishes, salads and soups. I had the fire roasted pizza and it was perfect. Great place to meet with friends or to have a romantic meal.

I recently went to Vittoria Trattoria for lunch with no I hadn't seen in years. We were treated warmly at the door and seated quickly. Our waiter was polite and knowledgable. We shared the beet salad and one of the specials, a pizza with goat cheese and artichoke hearts. Our waiter prepared to plates with the items already separated into... More

As a well travelled rover I have dined in the finest restaurants in Milan, Pisa, Bari, Trieste , Naples and Rome and know good Italian food very well. I wish I could say the same about Ottawa's Vittoria Trattoria but cannot. I and two companions, also well travelled, visited this restaurant one evening in January 2017. The service was very...

Made a reservation for 5 and went in tonight to celebrate our conference presentation in Ottawa. The hottest put us behind the bar in the hallway to the kitchen. When we requested to be moved to the other part of the restaurant with other tables, they said because it was a group of five they could not do that. Very... More

Hit: Great ambience, well located at the Byward Market, excellent and friendly service. The complimentary buns served at the beginning were fresh and were accompanied with olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Good choice of wines. Miss: Don't order the house salad! It was terrible. The mixed baby greens were limp and seemed if they had been stored for days. The... More

The food was good, but not great!! It is pricey for what you are getting. I had the pasta alla nonna. The pasta was cooked well but the chicken was rubbery. The atmosphere is nice and it is fun to be in the Market. The tiramisu was good but I have had better.

Nice place in the market but venture a few blocks away if you want some good food as opposed to touristey. quite ok but not worth the $ in my opinion. The soup was good.
