Every time we visit Ottawa, we go to Mamma Teresa for dinner. Food is excellent! Last weekend it was not crowded. We ordered appetizers + pasta. The appetizers came fast however the pasta took almost one hour after we ordered it.

Terrible, DO NOT EAT HERE. I usually don't write such negative reviews, chalking up negative experiences to going on an off night, but when you charge as much as they do, they better be doing their best every night. The service was alright for the...More
