We were checking out Byward Market and noticed the large crowd at Vittoria Trattoria. Good choice on our part. We could only sit at the bar, but we had the full menu and a keen bartender. We did not order from the menu, we just...More

Three of us stopped in for brunch after a good healthy skate on the Rideau Canal - meaning we brought in a good healthy appetite. The soup of the day - cream of mushroom with truffle oil and asiago cheese was awesome. The Antipasto Della...More

Our mouths water at the thought of the Alla Nonna and Funghi e Panceta! Their spinach and artichoke dip is also amazing. We finish the night with a creme brûlée. The building is beautiful and atmosphere is lovely. Highly recommend!

Ho-hum, not memorable. Soup was lukewarm, not hot. Too much dressing on salad. Good location, but you can find a better Italian dinner elsewhere. We were disappointed & would not return.
