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.

I absolutely LOVED this place - I sat outside, and even though I was dining alone, I didnt feel weird or out of place at all. The food was spectacular, everything the waitress suggested to me I ordered (and LOVED), and she even sent me home with some gratis tiramisu as a nice gesture. Would love to come back for a date night sometime!!

I typically avoid Italian restaurants, even high-end ones, because they generally tend to feel boring and uninspired. But North and Navy's menu was interesting, not to mention delicious - the whisked cod pasta dish in particular made me want to lick the plate. Really friendly and helpful service without being overbearing. Will definitely go back once my wallet recovers!

WE enjoyed a wonderful dinner at North & Navy this weekend. From the "Library"that comfortably seated the 4 of us, to the impeccable service by Kara, the food and wine - everything was fantastic. additionally, our one son is anaphylactic to peanuts and nuts and everyone was accommodating and knowledgeable. Everything was marvellous!

The food were in good portions and tasted excellent. My down side will be only the waiting time as I had to wait an extra 15-20 mins to get my table ready. But overall it was a very nice experience and I would like to come back and dine in the patio.

An old brick house just west of Bank St. has been converted into this restaurant. The seating arrangements respected physical distancing required by COVID. The service was very attentive and prompt. We were not kept waiting long for each course. We were impressed with the freshness of the ingredients, also that everything was made on site, including bread and all the dessert options. The dishes were creative, attractive and delicious. The wine was excellent. It cost more than we usually pay at a restaurant but the food, wine and service were of a higher calibre than other restaurants.

North and Navy is easily one of the best in Ottawa. Creative, fresh and authentic. The decor is is modern yet minimalist and comfortable. The real focus here is on creating a first class culinary experience. Their hand crafted cocktails are incredible and the servers and staff really care. Can’t recommend this establishment enough.

Excellent northern Italian fare. Some of the portions could be bigger such as the meatball. Either make it bigger or offer two. The wine list is impressive.

Service was good and the made things as COVID safe as possible to the point that I felt reassured.

Excellent spot for a date, celebrations or a cocktail get together.

This restaurant exceeded my expectations! The service was amazing - very helpful with choosing both food and wine pairings. The food was outstanding. Every bite was incredible. The only downfall was toward the end of our meal the ambiance changed as two very large groups piled into the restaurant, one of which was directly across from our table. It made things extremely loud, so we probably didn't linger as long as we might normally have. The server was very apologetic. I'm not sure if anything could have been done differently to change this, but felt it should be mentioned. Nonetheless, we had a fantastic experience up to that point and will definitely plan to celebrate other special occasions here!

North and Navy has always been one of our favourite restaurants in Ottawa. We usually sit at the chef table and get the chef to feed us. And every single time the experience was phenomenal. With Covid restrictions, it was our first time ordering our food. The waitress was amazing, she explained every single dish to us and she made everything sound so delicious. And as usual food for on point!! 10/10!! Patio experience was amazing, we felt like we were on a vacay eating on a patio. Photos turned out amazing too for instagram. Definitely, highly recommended.

We went to NoNa last night and it was just as amazing as always. Their attention to detail is what puts them in a class of their own. Everything they do is done with such care and precision. You can tell that Adam (owner and chef) takes such pride in his restaurant and his work. There are very few restaurants in Ottawa that compare to NoNa (and I’ve been to pretty much all of them). He also has an awesome podcast called At the Pass about the Ottawa restaurant scene.
