Nice to vacation in Ottawa and find real Italian food. We had the pasta carbonara and tagliatelle veal special which were both really good but the carbonara was the winner :) Our server was terrific and the whole staff does an excellent job!

We enjoyed the atmosphere at the restaurant. The meal was great but service was rather slow. I ordered a dessert coffee with my dinner and it didn't arrive until I was done eating.
