About the restaurant
Giovanni�s Ristorante, which you can find in Ottawa, Ontario, is proud of its reputation for serving some of the finest Italian cuisine in the surrounding area. The staff insists upon only the finest ingredients like AAA steaks and seafood taken fresh from the sea. Guests will also enjoy the lovely d�cor, which is filled with gleaming crystal, in addition to the food at Giovanni�s Ristorante. One great way to start your meal at Giovanni�s Ristorante is with one of the excellent soups, such as the minestrone or the stracciatella. When you make it to the main meal, you might try one of the veal dishes. The veal marsala, with mushrooms and a wine sauce, is just one of many options.

Since 2010, Grounded's focus has been on serving great food. Our made-from-scratch philosophy & hands-on approach is evident in everything we do. We specialize in fast healthy lunches, gastro-pub fare, BBQ, third-wave coffee, and delicious cocktails.

Grounded’s new location at 1545 Carling, embodies everything the Grounded brand has come to represent. Yet, at the same time Carling disrupts typical expectations with an innovative approach. Blending automation with the human element of customer service. Customers are greeted and attended to with the passion and care that they have come to expect from Grounded. Order using a table QR. No payment from your phone. Simply get started so orders go to the kitchen. We answer questions & deliver items. You settle up at the bar.

Grounded's space is edgy + creative. The one-of-a-kind dining room features a mix of glass, steel and concrete, an abundance of colorful lighting, and large art pieces from talented local artists. We also have a patio.

Great service and attention from our server. Food was unique and delicious. Great variety on the menu. Caters to food allergies or to diet preferences. A bit hidden and located within a building. Has a nice vibe. Paid parking area but they do validate parking. Good overall experience

Delicious radical cauliflower wings are my absolute favorite. I encourage people to try then as ofter as I can. I'm not vegan yet it's one of my go to places to eat lunch. Wish I had more warning before lost my 30 pk bucks once they gut rid of it. Still little sour on that. AS IT took a long time and take outs to earn them.

About the restaurant
At Aiana, our humble roots are planted in a desire to bring the abundance of Canada’s food products – many of which grow wild in or around Ottawa – to the forefront of flavourful dishes.

Traditions and techniques long forgotten (yet well-loved) are restored here, not only in tribute to what’s been practiced and procured by our nation’s peoples for thousands of years, but also in celebration of the one thing capable of uniting friends, family, and foes alike: food.

Driven to provide a dining experience unlike any other, Aiana’s cuisine reflects a harmonious balance between classic cooking techniques and contemporary recipes. Whether a memorable meal; handcrafted cocktail or a glass of carefully curated wine, Aiana delivers distinctly Canadian cuisine and impeccable hospitality – all from the pulse of Ottawa’s bustling downtown.

Great service love that there is no extra tipping required and they pay their employees living wages! The service is great! The food is nice but would be better I think. Some dishes are amazing but others are underwhelming

Turning words into action.
An unconventional cocktail bar born from the desire that ideas are meant to be changed.
Amorphous in nature.

About the restaurant
*PLEASE NOTE*
If you are reserving an outdoor table, there is no guarantee of a table inside if it rains.

Real wine. Real food. Real people.
Real wine is what we love — wines that reflect a place and time, made from grapes grown with love and respect for the land. Our chef works with local and seasonal produce, to offer delicious, unpretentious dishes that shine with food.

About the restaurant
Retrogusto is a pizzeria and bar that brings some much needed excitement to the north end of Preston street. We serve a Roman style pizza "Tonda", traditional roman fried snacks, salumi, cheeses and other small plates. Our food will be complimented by a small wine list that will be in constant rotation, strictly Italian classic cocktails, and beautiful amaro's from around Italy. The warm, cozy, dimly lit dining room with an open kitchen will be the perfect place to do the only thing that matters; eat good food, drink good wine and have a good time with friends.
