North and Navy
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.
Sun 4:30 pm–9:00 pm (Sunday at NoNa's)
The best seafood risotto I have ever tasted. Impeccable and friendly service, good wine.
Excellent food and service. Only drawback was the noise level. We were seated next to a table of 10. Could hardly hear ourselves speak.
Very good food and very good service, table wear and dishes worn,noise level far too high
Very noisy! Otherwise enjoyable.
North & Navy is a great spot for a special occasion, or when you just want really great Italian! The service was great and took note of what I put in the reservation request. They have a small room they've nicknamed the "library" that seats up to 6 I think. If you get a kick out of a more private dinning experience I recommend requesting the "library" for any special occasions, it was a friends birthday and it just took the evening up a notch.
Great overall versatile restaurant for dates, business deals or casual get together with friends.
Food had lots of interesting flavours.
Took my parents to celebrate my mom’s 60th. The service was above and beyond! Favourite dish was the spaghetti with lobster mushrooms and red wine sauce, but everything was delicious!!
We have been working in Ottawa regularly for the last 6 years and have tried MANY of Ottawa's finest restaurants. North and Navy provided the most consistent and top-notch experience each time. It is the right place for a special meal when you are not in a hurry, and when you can afford to enjoy it.
The food is excellent, the service present and always aware, but not distracting, and the ambiance is perfection.
Excellent service and food, had a wonderful family dinner
First time here after hearing so many good things from others. Great food and service.
Went to North & Navy for an anniversary dinner and was very happy with the experience. Good food, great service, and beautiful restaurant. Would definitely recommend to a friend and return in the future.
Amazing inventive food with great service. Highly recommend
Drinks were a little overpriced but I’m finding a lot of that in Ottawa. Food was good but I thoight my risotto was like a milky soup. But it tasted good
Probably the best service and overall meal That we have had in years! Fabulous attention to detail and service. Well done!
We came to NoNa for their "Sunday Gravy" menu. Everything on the menu is amazing and we always have a hard time deciding so the "Feed Me" option is our go-to. Great food and service as always. One of our favourite spots in Ottawa. Can't wait for our next date night :)
Amazing server - forget his name. Tall, younger guy - super awesome all around.
Kitchen-view from the chef's table made for a fun evening. Server was helpful with suggestions that were spot-on, and a genuine enthusiasm for the food that bubbled over. Took a chance on liver and onions and was more than surprised by how good it was.
Consistently superb service at one of our favourite bar side dinner spots. Our server Erica was perfect as always. Will be back, over and over.
We sat at the bar and the food was well served and very tasty, we are foodies and very much enjoyed it.
NoNa is an excellent spot! Both creative and classic at once and the service and atmosphere is top notch.
FYI, table @front window should have one chair removed, as person in it has to pull chair in to let staff remove dishes from up board.
This is not a review but a personal note.
Food was lovely and service amazing. In my reservation I asked for a specific table and got it. I’m also sure I mentioned it was a birthday and although I saw cake and candles going to other tables we never saw one. Kind of disappointing
Was an incredible experience, Chef Adam and our server Seb were outstanding. Friendly and welcoming atmosphere and the food was better than I could have imagined. Looking forward to my next visit
Absolutely fantastic!! Authentic Northern Italian cuisine, impeccably prepares and presented.
My daughter had a great birthday experience as did the rest of the family. Great food, great atmosphere, great service.
Always great wine pairings offered by staff. Delicious and thoughtful food in a quiet and unstuffy environment.
We were made to feel welcomed by our server from the moment we steeped inside the restaurant. She had great knowledge of the menu, and easily answered our questions. We decided to make a family style dinner, and also opted for the 46-48oz Florentine steak. While waiting we were offered a glass of Prosecco, which was a very nice touch. The food did not disappoint... Authentic, Fresh, and distinct flavours from one dish to the next. Great wine list offered different price points, and our desserts were to die for, especially the mixed summer berry tart. Thank you very much for making my mother-in-law’s birthday dinner one to remember!
North and Navy se distingue des restaurants italiens ordinaires. Il propose des plats créatifs et très savoureux qui gardent néanmoins une touche italienne. Le cadre est élégant et intime et le service très attentif.
Les prix sont un peu élevés par rapport aux portions servies et le choix des vins au verre limité (les vins sont très onéreux).
C'est une bonne adresse qui vaut le détour.
Authentic northern Italian fare. Appreciated the adjustments for food restrictions. Delicious! Grazie!
I already can't wait to go back! This place is special. From the decor and mismatched dishes to the comfortable seating in a cozy setting and on point service, N&N is just lovely. Erica served us and her enthusiastic descriptions and recommendations were just right! Thanks Erica! (The sorbet was a nice touch at the end)
The food at North and Navy is always delicious, fresh and cooked to perfection. Nonna’s Sunday Gravy did not disappoint. Comfort food taken to the next level.
The atmosphere is calm and cozy, allowing for quiet conversation - this made it the perfect spot to celebrate an anniversary. All the staff were incredibly attentive and warm without being overbearing or intrusive. We started the night with a drink, and I had one of the best negronis I've ever tasted. But the highlight of the meal for me was the Bigoli in Salsa. I shared with my date and was sorry I didn't have a whole plate to myself! North and Navy has definitely jumped to our top choice for celebrations.
The decor, service and food preparation was absolutely wonderful, unfortunately the food lacked flavor and seasoning in most dishes
Je suis allée au restaurant pour la première fois avec deux amies et nous avons tous beaucoup aimé! La nourriture était délicieuse, et sauf pour l'un des plats principaux qu'une amie a trouvé bon, sans plus, le reste était extra. Le service est sympathique, attentionné et les cocktails sont délicieux.
Je le recommande sans réserve et je suis certaine d'y retourner un jour!
This was our second time dining at North and Navy. Because our first experience was exceptional we were concerned it couldn't live up to the very high standard we had set. Luckily, our experience this time was just as wonderful. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable. The food is excellent and unique.
The atmosphere is comfortable but also classy. Would like to Sauvignon Blanc by the class and a return of calamari to the menu.
Can't wait to return.
My annual birthday dinner at North and Navy never fails to impress. Such novel flavour combinations presented deliciously. I love it here.
We were 6 and got the special Sunday "Let NoNa feed you" option -- everything was incredibly delicious and we were stuffed to the brim by the end of the meal. Sunday gravy and liver & onions are divine. Thanks so much to all the staff for a fantastic dining experience!
We had a lovely time. The food was very good, the portion sizes were very reasonable and I loved the decor, especially all of the tableware.
My partner and I went here for their birthday hoping for a lovely evening out. The atmosphere was fine, a touch louder than I was expecting for a Thursday night. I made a reservation two weeks before. When greeted at the door the hostess asked if we had a reservation, to which I replied that we did. She proceeds to walks us over to a table in the middle of the dining room. Not as nice as nice of a table as I would have expected having made my reservation so early on. Hostess was a tad standoffish. Food was good, though I found my pasta to be a touch closer to under cooked than al dente. The biggest issue I had was with our waiter Pascal. He came off as flustered throughout the entirety of our dinner. He never addressed me, a female, and instead addressed my male partner for everything. The drink order, the food order, the bill, how we were enjoying our food, everything was directed towards my male partner. It was bad enough that my partner noticed this and started directing the waiter to me for confirmation. At the end of the evening, I pulled out my wallet to pay. i had my wallet on the table, a small floral black wallet with my ID facing up, holding the credit card IN MY HAND and the waiter placed the debit machine directly in front of my partner, facing him. When I grabbed it from in front of him and inserted my card, Pascal got EVEN MORE flustered, which I didn't think was possible, said "Apologies Madame" and briskly walked away. I got second hand embarrassment on his behalf. Over all, the food was great, but the rest of the experience left much to be desired.
