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.

Great ambience, went here for a NYE dinner date and absolutely loved it! Food was incredible and the hosts knew I was vegetarian to ensured I knew what my options were. I would highly recommend North & Navy for a special occasion upscale meal. The only downside was that I had hoped for wine pairing to be included in the NYE set menu price as this was an addition $75 per person cost!

First time visiting and will not be the last. Every course had so much care and flavour. I can still taste that duck prosciutto and it's heaven. Thank you North & Navy team.

The food was exquisite - we had the Eggplant/Yogurt appetizer, I had the Short Rib and my dining-mate had the Swordfish. We shared the Almond Cake at the end. Beautiful atmosphere. The tables were nicely distanced. Thank you for a lovely evening. We will be back again soon!

This was my first time dining at NandN. The service was knowledgeable and the atmosphere was very pleasing. For what the meal was though, it was overpriced. The plates were essentially tapas; however, with full-size prices. The dishes were prepared with an excellent ensemble of flavors that paired well with each other. There was however a very large salt content leaving us parched after the meal.

This is the best food I had in Ottawa and likely the best Italian food I had in years. If I need to compare I need to think of spots such as La Quercia or Roscioli in Rome. Everything from bread to dessert was perfect, beautifully creative while subtle and keeping the best of classics. Vittello tonato, polpette, celeryvroot triangle pasta, cacio e pepe risotto and the two glories: the amazing cauliflower gorgonzola and the sublime almond tarte witg Parmigiano ice cream. I hope they get their first Michelin star soon! And more to come. This place is exceptional in North America ( and plenty of good taste all over). Rush before it will impossible to get a table, because that is coming if they keep this quality!

Had a great time at N&N. Our server was exceptional! Very knowledgable and generally nice to talk to. The ambience was very nice.... Not too loud but loud enough that you can have a good conversation without having to be quiet. Drinks and dinner were delicious. Would recommend!

My new favourite Ottawa restaurant. Don't skip the eggplant starter nor the risotto. Also, ask the bartender for a random cocktail. He won't disappoint!

Stopped in for the chef's tasting money on our honeymoon. We had tried the chef's tasting menu before and North and Navy lived up to the high standards set by our last visit. Would 100% recommend this establishment and the chef's tasting menu, along with the wine pairings. You can tell that great care is made when selecting the wines for pairing, it truly is an art. Can't wait to come back!
