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.

                                    Very disappointed other than the nice bottle of wine and great service. Food was lacking taste and flavour in many instances. Overpriced and undersized.

                                    Our favourite restaurant in Ottawa! Incredible food, ambience and service. Our server Amanda was fantastic and took great care of us. You really can't go wrong with any dish and the cocktails are great too.

                                    Great food and service. Acoustics in the restaurant made it very difficult to hear servers and each other. Wines a bit pricy for serving size.

                                    My husband and I just got home from having dinner and drinks from this restaurant. We were so elated to discover such an amazing restaurant! The atmosphere is cozy and the staff is friendly and very proud to work at this restaurant. The food was tasty and beautifully presented. After our meal we went to the bar and the bartender/artist created the most amazing cocktails. Bravo! We will definitely be visiting this restaurant again!

                                    Service was extremely slow to start. We waited ages to order a drink. Some dishes were good and some were average. I was disappointed this time … had been there once before and it was much better.

                                    We started with the Polpette and Vitello Tonato and lots of homemade bread and lemon Oregano butter. Primo was Spaghetti Grano Arso more bread to sop up the sauce. Secundo was Tournados Rosini ( with fois gras). Must have been Alberta beef !!! Dolce was Tiramisu. (traditional) Pairings started with Prosecco then two Montpulcianos -Tuscany and Abruzzi. Fabulous waitress ( Sam) who brought more bread every time she saw sauce left on the plate. We were charmed by the mismatched china and silverware ..

                                    This is my first dine-in experience at North & Navy. I had reserved a table for a special date and to be honest, I was first and foremost impressed with the setting. The restaurant is very cozy and the setting very home-like. The wine list was very good and when we ordered the food which was incredibly well explained by our waiter, we were offered locally baked bread with garlic and spiced butter. I could have just eaten that with wine and it would have been great! The food was delicious, extremely well presented and the plates and cutlery were very delicately chosen based on the dish. It was heaven from start to finish. We had to finish with their famous tiramisu...and we were NOT disappointed. Overall a 10/10, on the pricey side but you get what you pay for. I would highly recommend, it and would definitely go back again, especially since their produce and food are all locally sourced.

                                    The restaurant was busy and way too loud- we were 2 people but other tables were talking 6 levels higher than they needed to. The server Ellen was wonderful and she brought us complimentary bubbly which was a very sweet gesture. The food took a long time to come out initially and between courses. We ordered 4 dishes and only liked the starter of the 4. The other 3 dishes did not taste good- it wasn’t that they tasted bad but when we took a bite our response was not “ wow this is really amazing”. It was more like “ I definitely wouldn’t order this again “ or “ I guess I should finish it since I ordered it “. The food wasn’t off or cooked improperly, it just didn’t taste good at all. Unfortunately I wouldn’t go back and it was disappointing but you don’t always have a great experience every time.

                                    I can't say enough about our experience at this restaurant. The restaurant is in a converted older house but the feel is great. Very cool. The menu is very creative - traditional Italian with some clever twists/modernizations. For many diners you will need an explanation of most of the dishes. This isn't a negative - one of the staff carefully walk you though each menu item, make recommendations on how to pair items and how best to order to avoid having too much or too little. This walk through really added to the experience. The service is off the charts. When we arrived for our reservations they were running a very tiny bit behind. As a large group finished we watched as they quickly bussed the table and split them up and got us seated. Our delay couldn't have been more than 5 minutes and yet our pre-dinner drinks were offered free as an apology. The food itself is outstanding - it is one of those restaurants where you just have to trust the ingenuity and creativity of the chef. We would give North and Navy our highest recommendation - you will not go wrong at this restaurant.

                                    We went for a ladies dinner last night and had a wonderful evening. Great food and atmosphere. Our sever Shameen did a really amazing job going througn the menu in fine detail which we all really appreciated. Lots of vegetarian options too and def get a dessert. It is expensive however totally worth it if you want to treat yourself or looking for somewhere to try for a special occasional that also provides a friendly and cozy atmosphere that isn't boring..haha! Already planning to save for my next visit at North & Navy!

                                    It's such a pleasure when you go somewhere with high expectations, only to have them met, possibly even exceeded. Everything we ate (salumi, cauliflower w/gorgonzola, and Tournedos Rossini) was terrific. Service by Sebastien was attentive and gracious. A top 5 restaurant in Ottawa for sure. We'll definitely be back again.

                                    We had a perfect evening celebrating my husband’s bday (the first one out in 2 years). The service was perfect: attentive but not overbearing or disrupting. The menu was described well by the server and helped us choose our evening. All good was incredible and flowed from course to course. Timing was nice as well, so we didn’t feel rushed to finish one course before the next arrived. Cocktails, wine, meals, dessert and digestif were all perfect - including our server’s suggestion to pair Cynar with our espresso, rather than our usual Sambucha. Our new favourite pairing.:) Thanks again, always a fav spot for a reason. ❤️
