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.

    We had a wonderful time, the food was delicious, but the service was above expectations. We sat at the bar and Daniel our server/bartender was fantastic, made a good experience great. Highly recommend if you are in the area, or even if you aren’t!

    Mixed feelings! Service was wonderful, 3 of 4 food choices delicious but noise level was not energetic, it was painful! Price point high for the experience. Recommend the food but not the restaurant.

    Quantity of the octopus dish - 2 pieces smaller than 2 fingers, is definitely not worth the 48$ price tag, not to mention 2-3 pieces of potatoes. Very disappointed.

    After coming in from out of town to dine at North and Navy, I was very disappointed. The food was mediocre at best, we ordered the gnocchi which was overcooked and mushy, and the agnello e ova, which was already cold by the time we got it. The pasta had congealed in to one solid piece because it was so overcooked. The lamb was tough, with large amounts that were unchewable pieces of fat, with uncooked and mealy green beans on top. We wanted to order more food but didn't because of how terrible our first two courses were. The best part of the meal was the wine, which we chose ourselves since our server was unknowledgeable about the wine menu. To top it all off, our server had awful body odor, which put us off our food altogether. We would have complained, except our server never really came by our table so we had no opportunity to do so. I would never recommend this restaurant to others and was disappointed to spend so much money on a truly terrible meal.

    The service was excellent and the food came out fast. Ordered the lamb, which was a portion far too small to justify the 48$ price tag as a main, and had me regretting not ordering an appetizer/first course. Meal and drinks were good but not memorable. Ambience was noisy enough that it was difficult to hear my partner, but alright overall.

    Had the absolute most wonderful time at North and Navy. We are here for only a few nights from Edmonton and I wanted to make sure we picked the best of the best; N & N did NOT disappoint. Thank you to Daniel for curating an exceptional experience up at the bar for us. His knowledge of the menu was top tier; as was his gin sour making skills. It was truly one of the best meals we have ever had in a cozy atmosphere. Thank you for doing what you do.

    Main courses not good-lamb tough and cold,ridiculously paltry portion;fish dish not very tasty,bland portion very small;desserts not very good; appetizer was good but best part of the meal was the bread.Atmosphere very noisy,hard to hear company speak.Our previous visits were most enjoyable but this was a disaster and terrible outrageously expensive for what it was.

    This was one of the best experiences in my life! Everything was amazing: the food, the service, the selection of wine, the semi-private room we had, everything! We were a party of 6 and were able to taste everything on the menue and everything was delicious. Our waitress was knowledgeable and incredible. We will go again for sure.

    Consistency is the key of success. We are totally disappointed on our second visit. North & Navy impressed us on our first visit and we recommended it to our friends. We pre booked a special farewell dinner but it ruined our taste. Most of the dishes were overcooked, cream of dessert melted when presented to us. It was a total disaster.

    Lovely evening. Service was paced just right. Food was outstanding - both visually and from a taste perspective. We had a private space which was really lovely. We found it a little noisy so I expect if we had been out in the restaurant proper it would have been quite noisy as the people at the outer end of our table said they did find it hard to hear the conversation the rest of us were having. Everything is pricy but the food and drinks really were exceptional so I think it’s all in accord with what is happening generally with restaurant pricing these days. Excellent spot for a special occasion.

    My husband and I went to North and Navy for our anniversary. Reservations were for outdoors- the outdoor dining area is so quaint and cozy, but inside is just as beautiful! Our server was cheerful and friendly. The ambiance is very welcoming and charming. Amazing wines, food and service. Staff are extremely knowledgeable and made great recommendations. It truly was a great dining experience. One point though, the prices are a bit on the high end but definitely worth the treat! AND THE BREAD!! omg Would highly recommend!
