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.

Loved the ambience of the place - very warm and welcoming. The food was delicious, albeit a little pricey. The service was really great: they were gracious, attentive and were very informative about the food. I also liked the beautiful mismatched antique plates and silverware. A nice restaurant for a special occassion. Overall a great place!

We were worried that it would be too noisy. However, we were given a small room that could accommodate the four of us. When the server was not in the room, the doors could be closed making it very quiet.
The food was very interesting and flavorful.

We’ve ordered mushroom spaghetti to start, Venetian liver and Duck with beans & carrots as main course. I’ve never been to Italy or try the local northern Italian food. To my personal opinion, these 3 dishes I’ve ordered were a bit salty than average. But the restaurant’s overall atmosphere was good. And the dessert Tiramisu was great.

North & Navy is a great spot for a special occasion, or when you just want really great Italian! The service was great and took note of what I put in the reservation request. They have a small room they've nicknamed the "library" that seats up to 6 I think. If you get a kick out of a more private dinning experience I recommend requesting the "library" for any special occasions, it was a friends birthday and it just took the evening up a notch.

We have been working in Ottawa regularly for the last 6 years and have tried MANY of Ottawa's finest restaurants. North and Navy provided the most consistent and top-notch experience each time. It is the right place for a special meal when you are not in a hurry, and when you can afford to enjoy it.

The food is excellent, the service present and always aware, but not distracting, and the ambiance is perfection.

We came to NoNa for their "Sunday Gravy" menu. Everything on the menu is amazing and we always have a hard time deciding so the "Feed Me" option is our go-to. Great food and service as always. One of our favourite spots in Ottawa. Can't wait for our next date night :)

Kitchen-view from the chef's table made for a fun evening. Server was helpful with suggestions that were spot-on, and a genuine enthusiasm for the food that bubbled over. Took a chance on liver and onions and was more than surprised by how good it was.

FYI, table @front window should have one chair removed, as person in it has to pull chair in to let staff remove dishes from up board.
