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.

Ambiance, food and everything was fabulous. Staff is great. We waited a little extra in to get table due to previous table, but staff was incredible about it. Took care of first round of drinks etc. All in all, love N&N

Truly an amazing experience, with the obvious difficulties that most restaurants are experiencing due to COVID I think the staff did an amazing job overcoming restrictions health and safety protocols etc. We got there on time but waited about 40 minutes due to a table taking their time settling their bill. This didn't bother us as the waiter brought us a free drinks while we waited (we appreciate the gesture so much) and we got set up in their outdoor patio while we waited (Beautiful outdoor patio by the way!) once our table was set we were inside and our food came right away so we didn't feel the delay. Again, no fault of the restaurant . People are enjoying the freedom of being out, so it makes sense that some tables took more time to settle their bill.

Food was incredible I had the Duck breast, meatballs and Tiramusu for dessert. thank you very much to the staff for doing such a great job in these difficult circumstances. I am Wishing the owner(s) and staff all the best as they continue to operate into the New Year.

Over-the-top food quality and presentation, lovely atmosphere, and great service. The devil is in the details and every detail seems to be thought through, from the complexity of flavours in a dish to the vintage ornate plates and cutlery. North and Navy is an experience. 11/10.

It is very dimly lit in the dining rooms, The 2 h time limit is a bit unfair for a couple willing to spend money on a couple of bottles of wine and a full meal. But I still recommend this place to everyone.

Had a wonderful time dining at North & Navy. My meal was EXCELLENT. had the eggplant app, two different wine options, and the duck entree. The eggplant was one of the best I've ever had. Very different, but so so good.

Had a wonderful dinner with my colleague on Friday evening. Really enjoyed the starters: meatballs, tomato & ricotta, salmon crudo and charred eggplant - all delicious. Corzetti pasta was equally as enjoyable, as was the Lambrusco. If weather permits next time, I'll try to dine on their patio space - it appears to be deceivingly small but we were told it's quite a large section! Thanks North and Navy!

Had never been here before, but wanted to celebrate a birthday. My wife and I had a very enjoyable meal. We ate at their small patio outdoors, due to covid (we didn't feel ready to eat indoors even though it is allowed). We probably missed out on some of the fine dining ambience by being outdoors, but it was still pleasant. Our waitress (I believe it was Ellen) was perfect, always professional, helpful, friendly. We shared to polpette (meatballs) appetizer, and it was phenomenal. They also provided housemade bread with special butter, and that combined with the meatballs would have left me satisfied. Of the 2 mains we tried, the smoked duck was a standout; the duck was perfectly cooked, but the smokiness raised it to a level I'd never experienced. And my wife had the panna cotta for dessert; this is a dessert she always loves, and it was done perfectly. All in all, highly recommend this place for foodies, but in terms of price, it is a bit of a splurge.

Appreciated that it was an upscale environment, but was disappointed by the extremely small portion sizes, the high prices (not worth the cost whatsoever) and the very small menu.

The food was outstanding in taste, texture, presentation and variety. The portions are smallish but a single order of an antipasto, primo and secundo served two (one is a small eater) more adequately, with room for a fabulous dessert with two spoons. The server was knowledgeable and friendly, and guided us through the choices with appropriate recommendations that were spot on. The patio - a hastily converted driveway because of COVID restrictions - was okay, and the unmatched china was an interesting touch but the silverware could have been upgraded; we chose to eat outside rather than in the nicely appointed restaurant because of COVID. Patrons were very casually dressed, which surprised us given the cost of the meal. Do come for the food and for the service. That was memorable.

We sat at the bar which is a favourite spot of ours - so fun. We shared 4 small plates and some of their delicious bread. We also asked for a side of their fava beans just because I was curious, they obliged and we were not disappointed - delish.
Support this resto, it’s really good.
