Italian
A Northern Italian kitchen inspired by the Bacari of Venice
Our menu is inspired by tradition and dictated by the quality and availability of ingredients. We play off the similarities between the climates of Eastern Ontario and Northeast Italy, and create our take on classic dishes made with seasonal game, seafood and vegetables. Plus, sometimes we’ll just add whatever we want.

    Amazing as usual. We find it fun and delicious when we ask a capable waiter to “bring us food”. Which she did expertly and with a positive energy that made it all more fun. Fresh seasonal ingredients like fuzzy tomatoes and chanterelle mushroom pasta…a truly delightful experience. Can hardly wait to go back!

    We were seated as soon as we got there and the staff was very friendly and helpful. Our server Laura took a lot of time to explain the menu and we were very happy with our choices. Everything was cooked to perfection I have no complaints at all! The atmosphere was wonderful considering it was our anniversary. We were in a nice quiet booth. Can’t wait to go back.

    It’s a wonderful restaurant in Ottawa with a great menu and very friendly and knowledgeable staff. The menu is not always easy to read because there are some specific Italian/pasta names but the staff can explain everything very clearly.

    Portions could be a little bigger and I feel that vegetables were lacking. A side salad or appetizer offering would be nice. I did love that a Prosecco was offered by the glass.

    Overall I liked this place as a new interesting experience. However, I am unlikely to go there again, primarily for two reasons - the choice of food is too limited, and, in my opinion, it is over pricy.

    We came here for an anniversary celebration and they were very kind and brought us champagne. The food was very delicious but the portions sizes were quite small for the price. The menu is varied and really interesting options. It is a bit unapproachable to not have any descriptors on the menu so the server has to explain each option.

    The quality of the food was second only to the service - the staff is top notch. You can immediately feel the calmness and experience working there by the way they navigate the room, chat with diners and make sure their needs are tended. Not to mention, when your server can run through the entire menu from memory and answer questions on the fly... like, wow. Highly recommended if you're looking for a higher dinning experience.

    The meal was outstanding. Chef did an amazing job on my polpo, and sciumette dessert. Sebastian, our server walked us through the menu and recommended an amazing wine that went with all four mains! He’s probably the best waiter I have encountered and I’ve travelled the world! Would definitely go back and recommend to all my family and friends!

    The food was exquisite…my main was lamb and it was cooked to perfection, the taste divine. The pasta choices were interesting to the point that making a selection was challenging…I wanted to try them all! Love that ingredients are locally sourced. The service was friendly and knowledgeable. Our server was was very helpful in helping us with a great wine selection to accompany our meal. I can see a definite return visit to this lovely restaurant in the future.
