Delicious selection of great Italian food. I went back again - it was so good. Service was excellent.
Food quality here is average. I am an avid dirty martini drinker and they do not have olive juice. Despite this; when the patio is open the atmosphere is fantastic. Surrounded by outdoor patios, great vibes, its truly worth while (when its warm). The winter is quite dull and its small. Some might call it quaint (I would not).
Went here for dinner with a friend a couple days ago. The atmosphere is so-so. Our waiter was very friendly and helpful. Both my friend and I ordered pasta dishes which tasted fine. There was just nothing that made this place stand out from the dozens of other Italian restaurants in Ottawa.
Despite some patchy reviews, we found this a very acceptable place for an al fresco lunch in October despite the warning on arrival that the restaurant's pasta machinery had broken down and the menu would accordingly be curtailed. Friendly service.
If you are travelling in the market in Ottawa, a couple or a family, this is a great little restaurant, pasta, lovely desserts, good wine and beer selection, friendly service. In summer / fall you can sit outside in the courtyard area, very pretty and inside its had some updating done so its fresh, Ive been there several times, alway... More

Walked in on a Saturday evening around 8 and the pace was not busy, all the tables for 2 were taken but plenty of empty tables for 4. The host... More
Our family of 4 which included two children aged 7 & 9 enjoyed our dinner at Mama Grazzi's. The atmosphere was very relaxed. The food tasted homemade and not mass produced. The kids loved the fettuccine Alfredo with chicken. We don't usually order pasta in a restaurant as we cook delicious meals at home and are most often disappointed with... More
Stopped here briefly for a "snack" whilst walking around Ottawa and ordered pizza and a couple of sides. The food was good (we had calamari, bruschetta and some sort of sausage pizza), which were all freshly made and delicious. We sat outside, as the weather wasn't too cold and we found it a great place for people watching. The service... More
After being turned away by a tiny, crowded restaurant where we did have a reservation, we were lucky to find an empty table for six at Mamma Grazzi's Kitchen. The patio was just what we were looking for and the staff could not have been more helpful in accommodating our group of six. Our waiter was charming and made us... More
