And for good reason. North and Navy specializes in traditional Italian dishes from Northern Italy. No you won't find pizza here, or spaghetti with meatballs...think fresh fragrant cheeses, crispy fried smelts with home made aioli, hand made pasta with decadent sauces.

North and Navy is located in an older house in central Ottawa which makes for a comfortable (though the air conditioning could be a lot stronger!) and cozy setting (several small rooms). The food almost lives up to the setting - creative and very good...More

We made a reservation at this restaurant based on the recent reviews that it was one of the best in Canada. As a native of Ottawa we decided to check it out. Sadly the that expectation was not our experience tonight. It started out poorly...More

One of my favourites in Ottawa! Their menu changes every month but they always have delicious food. A menu staple I always get, and is a must try, are the meatballs; they are amazing and if you ask for extra bread you can dip it...More
