I've been to this restaurant many times over the past 15 years and usually had a positive experience. Based on this we decided to visit to celebrate our wedding anniversary. This time, things seemed to have changed. While going on a Sunday night did not require the reservation we made, it would have been busier on a Saturday I'm told.... More

The pizza is delicious, and my mom who I often go with always raves about the pasta (and she's a tough critic). There is a beautiful courtyard patio out back, and it's such a quiet, intimate atmosphere inside. It's small, so I wouldn't recommend it for a large group, but it's nice for a romantic meal

Had an early supper as the flight out was looming. The outdoor courtyard was just perfect on a warm sunny afternoon. The bread appetizer was fresh and very tasty. The food was excellent and everything was just perfect. A great way to spend the afternoon.

Homemade pasta dishes were wonderful. We had a server with attitude unfortunately but we did let management know when we left. But the food was outstanding and sitting outside in the courtyard was wonderful

Arrived at 2:30 p.m on Friday.Twelve tables were open. We told the hostess that we were looking for capaccino/coffee and dessert. We were told they could only serve us if we were eating . We left ,went a short distance and spent money elsewhere. Too bad. The courtyard looked good

We used to live in Ottawa and this was one of the best Italian restaurants around! The food is home made. If you want really good pasta, and super friendly service, then you'll love Mamma Grazzi's. We return every time we return to Ottawa - yum!

Was there last weekend with my wife and asked for the special of the day and it was terrible food/pasta with sauce that I could not eat.Paid $25 for the special food and walked out to go to a real restaurant to eat. Do not go there if you are hungry and like to eat decent food.

My wife and I stopped at the Mamma Grazzi's for dinner. We sat inside instead of the terrace. We were alone inside the small dining room. As an entree, my wife and I share the Sautéed Scallops. The scallops were soft, spicy and delicious. For the main meal, my wife had the Pollo Alla Gorgonzola and myself, the Madagascar. My... More
