    Have gone many times mainly because we use our comps from casino to pay for meal. The food is very good. We enjoyed Caesar salads and lasagna. The service is always excellent and many times we’ve been looked after by Tanya who goes above and beyond every time. She has been an employee at Rideau Carleton since the buffet days and has always been extremely helpful. We will continue to go there on casino nights

    This was our first time at the Caffè. We were vey surprised by the quality of service and food. My wife's steak was cooked to perfection but my rack of lamb was not because the server did not ask me how I wanted the steak done. After the correction, the rack of lamb was marvelous. We were surprised by the number of entrees. The wine was OK and desert was delicious and not sweet. Overall service by Nicole was impecable. The price was unbeatable. Keep doing what your doing.

    The food & service was very good. Unfortunately, due to lack of changes on your reservation site we were unable to select from the regular menu when ordering our food. We were aware of the Thursday seafood special but when making reservations they still had an option of Christmas menu or regular menu. You would think by now, the Christmas would be deleted. We assumed that we could pick off the regular menu if we did not care to have the seafood menu. Unfortunately it was a limited menu. One guest in particular was not happy at all. The manager came over & did provide an appetizer that he wanted and was not suppose to be available and he also provided a round of drinks. We felt this was very generous of him but the manager, nor the waitress should of been put in this position because you have not updated your system pertaining to the menus. I heard from another individual that recently made reservations & they noticed the same thing when making reservations. You would think after Christmas that this option would be removed immediately and clarify when a special may be on, example sea food menu on Thursdays, that if the full menu is not available to those not wanting seafood, it is made clear. Regards Margaret M

    My niece and her partner and myself and a girlfriend dined this passed Sunday and we were so impressed with the food, quality of food, the service and all the way to clearing the tables were top notch. Friendly people were all around us and we didn’t have to wait for any service they provided. Our evening was wonderful and as the past few years have been very sketchy, it was lovely to make this outing our first for a long time. Prices were reasonable and we all couldn’t say enough about the preparation of food and the presentation of same. Our evening was great and there would be nothing we would say or change to our evening. We will be back and more family and friends have heard all about this evening we shared together. We all thank you and all the staff that work together to make this restaurant so special. Carole Herbert (party of four)

    Better off checking directly with restaurant as the published menu changes frequently and your favorite dish may not be available. The last 3weeks, on a Thursday, we went specifically for their advertised special only to be disappointed as it was unavailable.

    My husband & I dined at Caffee Italiano last night & I must say it was a very pleasant experience. This has not always been the case on previous visits but last night was one of the best dinners we have had. We started with appetizers which were very good. My husband's clam chowder was extremely tasty. I do not even care for clam chowder but I must admit, it was good. I enjoyed a main course of steak which was done perfectly & my husband opted for the special, seared trout on a bed of polenta. He found it to be done perfectly as well. The service Tania provided was excellent as usual. The other staff was very attentive as well. Margaret

    Good was very expensive. Cold and my dish was supposed to have lobester. Didn’t see any. For $125 per person I expect a festival ambiance with it was like sport’s bar. My family had a steak . I have seen better and don’t start me with the wine… . I did the reservation and after the meal my family look at me like what?

    Great friendly staff and an amazing experience. A while ago my wife and I were in Las Vegas and managed to score a reservation at Gordon Ramsay's restaurant. While it was very good Caffe Italiano was better and not by a little but either. It was one of the best meals I have ever had. The seafood dish was indescribably delicious and so flavorful. My wife had the steak and went on about how it was one of the best she had ever had. Who would have thought that a local Ottawa restaurant let alone one in a casino would be world-class!!! This is definitely at the top of our restaurant list from now on. Happy New Years everyone and especially the staff and chefs at Caffe Italiano. You made it a memorable experience!!!
