This is a relatively large pizza/pasta restaurant situated close to the Parliament Hill tourist area. It does not pretend to be anything except an honest Pizza/pasta place.

The Pizza were certainly tasty and large enough to be shared by two. The service was very friendly and attentive. There was no suggestion that you were being pushed out to vacate space for other diners. We were left alone to eat and finish in our own time.

Not very expensive with a large pizza being only CAN $16.

Quite a comfortable place for a lay back meal.

Went with a group of friends who were in from out of town. We all had great food and great drinks. Felt like we got our money's worth. Was quiet when we went as it was a little later... Would definitely recommend visiting! Great location as well.

After living in the area for the last couple years and often working from home, I only just discovered their lunch/takeout shop last month.

I am not sure where else, in central Ottawa especially but potentially anywhere in the city.. that you can get an amazing panini with a generous side salad for like $8.80.

Pick your bread, the type of sandwich you want, and whatever toppings you want on the salad (lettuce + 3 more toppings)... how can you go wrong?!?! The veggie panini is filled with vegetables.... the lime cilantro dressing for the salad is delish.

This is one of my go-to lunch places!

Poor if you don't like loud music. This restaurant is 'open plan' upstairs and downstairs, hence the loud music is everywhere which makes for poor acoustics! One person I was with wears deaf aids and had to switch them off as the 'background' noise was very much in the foreground and unbearable. Also, we had to ask to move table as it was right under the air conditioning unit, although the next place wasn't much better. Can't understand why air conditioning was on when the windows were wide open, surely air-con would have to work twice as hard? Food good and very popular. But we didn't return.

Casual Italian place with a take out counter for salads, soup, freshly made sandwiches and Italian specials. They have a large sit down location with great food in a very casual atmosphere with catering for couples or groups. The food is very good and the service very efficient and friendly.
