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.

  • 5 a 7 - Bacaro

    Multiple dates available
    Mon - Thu - 5:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m.
    On practically every calle, salizada and ruga in Venice, you’ll find a Bacaro – a casual place to grab a glass of wine or Prosecco and a bite to eat, known as “cichèti.” Bacari are Italy’s answer to the pub, and cichèti are the Italian answer to Spanish tapas. Italians have an answer for everything. Situated at the rear of the restaurant, our Bacaro upholds the Italian tradition of togetherness. It’s the perfect place to meet friends after work, or to share a casual glass of sparkling wine and a small bite to eat.

    There is no easy way to say this but the food was below average. The meatballs in our pasta dish were tough and the sauce had too much cayenne. Our tomato starter was simple but the ingredients didn’t hold up together. The cheese was too runny to eat with cherry tomatoes cut in half. Thinly sliced tomatoes would have been a better approach. The meat starter was the highlight with a very nice kumquat sauce. Lovely! Our waiter got one of drink’s wrong but was really nice and accommodating when we mentioned we didn’t like our pasta dish. Overall this restaurant has lost the detail, finesse and charm it had 5 years ago.

    We love North And Navy. However this time we were sadly disappointed. The food was mediocre to poor. The Cichetti bread was too thick and not crusty on the edge, as if the bread was day old. Seabuckthorn berries are tart and while a fabulous addition to a dish were over used in the risotto, really overwhelming the subtleties included in the dish. The Sablefish was overcooked and very underwhelming. There was no point in having desert. The other guests at the table felt the same. Underwhelmed and disappointed. Certainly not worth the price. Time to find a new favourite.

    Amazing first experience! I've never had a fine dining experience and this was a perfect place where it was fancy but not 12 different forks and spoons fancy. The food and service was fantastic! My boyfriend and I celebrated our anniversary and we were kindly given congratulations (with an added Prosecco drink). We also went in letting them know our food allergies (no dairy, egg or soy) and they were more than accommodating. Ellen our server was so wonderful explaining everything and ensuring the food allergies were followed for us. We will definitely be back again! ☺️

    Sublime expérience. Nous étions sur la petite terrasse sur le côté du restaurant : c'était vraiment mignon (je vous conseille cependant d'attendre le début du coucher du soleil pour certaines tables). La nourriture : italienne, délicieuse, parfaitement assaisonnée ; les sauces sont mémorables. Super carte des desserts. Service impeccable, rapide et convivial. À l'intérieur, ça semblait hyper mignon. Pour une expérience mémorable légèrement en dehors du brouhaha du centre-ville ; je recommande.

    Impeccable service. The food, however, was disappointing. We tried a number of plates and the quality varied greatly from plate to plate. 2 were great, others mediocre, and others failed completely. Taste profiles were confusing, and some elements were just bad. For a restaurant of this supposed calibre, all plates should be excellent. While we still enjoyed our evening, this was because of the service and in spite of the food.

    Really cool place . Willow our waitress was fantastic . Food was very interesting . Our sablefish didn’t taste right . I’ve had it many times before but this was really fishy smelling and tasting. Didn’t east it and didn’t get any credit of discount . I wish the menu had descriptions . Exotic names and waitress had to explain what they all meant .

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

    Food was overall very good. The antipasti were decent, but the mains were outstanding. Cocktails were ok, wine selection was quite good too. Service was phenomenal. Attentive but not overbearing, very professionally done. The place is loud but the vibe is perfect; however, the interior needs an overhaul as it's starting to show its age. Overall we had a great evening, definitely recommend it to anyone.

    The dinner was delicious, very small plates for the price. The desserts were extremely lackluster and bland. I would have to say it was the most tasteless tiramisu I've had which was disappointing for a Italian restaurant. Overall fun night out but would not return.
