About the restaurant
Giovanni�s Ristorante, which you can find in Ottawa, Ontario, is proud of its reputation for serving some of the finest Italian cuisine in the surrounding area. The staff insists upon only the finest ingredients like AAA steaks and seafood taken fresh from the sea. Guests will also enjoy the lovely d�cor, which is filled with gleaming crystal, in addition to the food at Giovanni�s Ristorante. One great way to start your meal at Giovanni�s Ristorante is with one of the excellent soups, such as the minestrone or the stracciatella. When you make it to the main meal, you might try one of the veal dishes. The veal marsala, with mushrooms and a wine sauce, is just one of many options.

Best steak experience all over Canada. Bone-in rib was unbelievably tasty. Server was friendly and attentive, yet not over-bothering. Was recommended carpaccio instead my first thought beef tartare; turned out to be awesome. One should really try their meat even not living in the hotel. Price was very expensive (yes), but it worths. The least satisfying was the peppercorn sauce, cuz I would prefer strong strong pepper flavour. Must-try in Ottawa.

All of our dishes are modest portions designed to share. This allows guests to sample a few different dishes without having to commit to just one main course as in a traditional restaurant. Our menu changes frequently, respecting product availability and seasonality.

We are committed to working with our many great suppliers to source the best and most flavourful ingredients possible. We use local, sustainable and seasonal products whenever possible, and believe in supporting area farmers as much as we can.

My husband and I had dinner there and the food and service were great. Very small and intimate. We are both gluten free and they were very accommodating. He had the filet mignon which just melted in your mouth. and I had the Cod which was light and delicious flavors. A Gluten free deserts would be great if they can add that to one of the choices.

About the restaurant
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.

The food was outstanding. The bread is the best in town, like a tasty rustic northern Italian bread. The lemon zeppoli was outstanding.
