The food is a tad expensive, but is very good and fresh. Nice and quiet, and a great location. The service is prompt and friendly, and you are made to feel welcome. All in all, a nice place for a meal.

Came with a large group of co-workers (10 ppl); server (may have been owner) was attentive and accommodating. Food was good. Most of our group ordered pasta dishes. Portions are HUGE, so come hungry!

We were two old friends that meets to catch up on things so we like a place were we are not rush and we do not have to scream over the music. We both order a local beer and pizza (Firenze and Piccante). Service a great but a smile would be nice. Food was delicious a very authentic Italian pizza... More

Experience over many years has been consistent - good food, good service,and servers who remember you and what you like. The food is not flashy but consistently good - the 'pollo' dishes are particularly dependable. One the one time when I was seved the wrong dish (I had ordered the wrong thing), it was quickly replaced with grace.

The service was so bad that it was my worst service experience in ottawa so I'm writing about the service first. ..I'm not sure if it was just a bad day or the waitress was new etc but it took over an hour and fifteen for our pizza to arrive even though we were told that it takes eight minutes...

We stopped by this restaurant for supper on a Sunday evening. Although we didn't have reservations this busy place was able to accommodate us. This old building was unique with many levels and eating areas. The service was good and the server was polite and efficient. The Italian food was the best that everyone in our party had ever eaten!!... More

I have never had such poor service and it wasn't even busy. The server didn't even ask us for our drink order. It took 30 minutes just to place our food order. The food took a while and was average to everyone at our table. No water refills, we weren't asked how our meals were and we never received more... More

A friend and I were looking for some comfort food and walking around the Byward Market when we stumbled across this restaurant. We missed lunch and were very hungry, so we didn't investigate much before sitting down. There wasn't much on the menu that jumped out at us, so we decided to share an order of bruschetta and a plate... More

The food (we had three different plate of pasta) was great and service was good. The waiters were a bit stressed wich didn't contribute to a cool, laid back atmosphere. But never the less, staff was friendly and correct so we did enjoy our dining experience. And I understand the job of a waiter isn't always a pleasant one.
