About the restaurant
Stofa is built on a passion for food, traditional and modern cooking methods, and creativity. We look to the ingredients to bridge the gap between time-honoured techniques and modern progression, producing a comfortable, inventive, and evocative dining experience.

Stofa's name represents a place of warmth and comfort where people can gather to eat, drink and be with friends. We proudly support local and sustainable products, and participate in the farm and food community, all while providing guests with vibrant and engaging food presented in an approachable yet innovative dining setting.

Located in the vibrant Wellington West area of Ottawa, Stofa offers a 3 or 5 course table d'hote menu which changes regularly. We offer patio dining (weather dependent) and have a private room available for large groups or professional meetings. Stofa Social Hour available Thurs-Sat from 5-6PM offers a special menu focusing on shareable platters and drink specials, offered alongside our regular menu.

With the kids at overnight camp, my husband and I found ourselves with free evenings and an opportunity to try a couple of new places. We went to Stofa for Social Hour and sat at the bar. The ambiance was lovely and the food was great. The bar tender was a bit stand-offish, not overly friendly which was a bit of a downer, but overall it was very nice.

It was an excellent experience. The food we were served was of good quality, I used to dine in Italian restaurants and Joe's pizza in its both locations (Almonte and Wellington St. Ottawa) is an excellwnt choice. The place was quite and the service was very good.

Delightful afternoon tea. Great choice of teas. Sandwiches outstanding. The dairy-free platter for my super-allergic daughter was excellent - she didn’t feel left-out as she often does. The two young lady wait staff were delightful and helpful - really added to an excellent birthday experience. And, as my granddaughter said, the decor was super cute. Thank you for a great experience. We will definitely be back to try the rest of the menu.
