We ate here for lunch recently for a work affair and it was great (mostly because of the service)
I enjoyed my linguine al pescatore - decent taste and large portion.
It seemed to be hit or miss for my colleagues.
Sam Adams on tap was good.

We attended a large dinner party/gathering/function at Tosca last month. It was a set meal for a set price, 3 courses. Everyone's looked great, and filling. Except mine. It had been pre-arranged over a week in advance for me to have a "special" meal due to dietary restrictions. Guess what I got? Vegetables. That's it. Not even a dessert option. Our kind waitress took pity on me and offered me lemon sorbet.

Extremely displeased that I had to pay $35, PLUS taxes, PLUS mandatory gratuity, for a lazy "meal" that cost maybe $3 to make.

Did the kitchen staff forget this arrangement? Or did they just not care?

I hope the managers/staff are pleased with themselves for ripping people off.

I will definitely never go here again, and i definitely do NOT recommend this restaurant. I could have eaten much better, had much more food, and saved a lot of money if I had bought a microwave meal at a corner store.

We were visiting Ottawa for the weekend and, based on the positive reviews on Tripadvisor, decided to try this restaurant. Although the service was excellent, the food was not good at all. The chicken parmigiana was tough and overcooked. My husband ordered the gnocchi, which was mediocre at best. Overall, it was a very disappointing meal.

Great dinner spot in Ottawa. Last time we were there they were hosting a very loud birthday party and did not advise us when we booked. The food and service was still great however we had to yell during the entire dinner in order to hear each other. The only thing they did to make up for this was offer a "shot" after our dinner. Oh we'll we will dine there again as we really like the food.

The service was top notch. I asked for a single seat and they quickly offered something in a corner next to a window. I had the chicken noci with a glass of Shiraz. The food was very very good and very tasty. The wine complemented the dish perfectly. No complain here. I went on a Friday and the restaurant was packed but they managed to find me a seat quickly.
