Quaint and delicious. Large serving sizes. Enjoyed very much but tables close together
Great service as always!!
The Cacio e pepe is out of the world.
One of our favourite restaurants in Ottawa. Food is always fantastic, super consistent. Servers are wonderful. Always such a great experience! Also a fabulous selection of wines to buy
Excellent time and delicious food
I enjoy the dinner menu more than lunch. Sandwich was more bread than I enjoy. Would still go back!
Great service and atmosphere! Very cute and intimate for small get togethers
Lovely lunch and service
Exceptionally good food
Decor reminded us of our visits to Tuscany, Very tasty food. Friendly and attentive staff. Very enjoyable evening. We would definitely return.
This was our second visit to Cantina Gia. Once again, an excellent experience. Our only concern would be with the volume level of the music. We do appreciate how music contributes significantly to atmosphere; however, when the volume level makes it difficult to communicate with one's dining partner and with the server (especially when she is wearing a COVID mask), it is a bit much. We were there for a 6pm seating. I recommend keeping the volume at a moderate level for early seatings, say, til 8pm. Perhaps the later crowd would better appreciate a more energetic level of music.
Great place for lunch, food was amazing, service impeccable. Will do again definitively
It's a beautifully decorated restaurant with nice plating, and delicious orange juice. The music is too loud to have a conversation without having to shout though (this may result in the further spread of droplets and potentially COVID-19). The tables also appeared a bit too close together as I was given a dirty look when I was seated at the table next to a couple who had already started their meal. I didn't feel comfortable so I asked to be moved since there were many available tables. The host/server reluctantly agreed and I was given a table to the left of my original table. There was a takeout bag already on it, but she moved it to a nearby couch and didn't clean the table (presumably because it was cleaned before the takeout bag was placed on it?) While our server appeared polite, her tone suggested that something was bothering her. We weren't given spoons with our pasta dishes, but we should have asked for them. It would have been easier to eat. My carbonara dish was a lot saltier than I expected, but I didn't say anything as I thought that is the way it is supposed to taste. I just drank lots of water during and after my meal, and when I got home. When we asked for our bill, we were a bit shocked that it took so long as we noticed that they had to turn people away at the door. Anyhow, kudos to the person/people who designed the interior. It is an Instagram-worthy place!
A wonderful evening with dear friends, delicious food, and impeccable service!
Absolutely delicious brunch, looking forward to returning soon!
The food is terrific!
Cantina Gia was amazing! Food was excellent but the service was even better. A must try in Ottawa!
Overall great pasta. Appetizers a bit greasy.
Super loud music.
Server at the table every few minutes. Interrupted often- wasn’t that relaxing
Outstanding restaurant. Strong Italian influence in the menu. Fabulous, attentive service - you wouldn't know that COVID is still underway. Fun, energetic atmosphere - a little loud for us (60-ish couple), but not overly so. Good for all ages in the early evening hours (1730-1800-ish). Uniquely hip place for Bank St. We will be back.
Excellent service! Beautiful
decor and delicious food. They were so kind to my young daughter
An ambient, classy, and unique vibe in the heart of the Glebe!
Heard great things about this place and it lived up to the strong reviews. Great space, great staff, great food and great overall vibe.
Food was excellent but it could have been warmer. It was very noisy.
This place is the greatest. Everything from the food to the wine. Perfection
Great server Jess. Wonderful ambience and food
Great drinks, food, ambiance, and service. Top notch.
The food at Cantina Gia never disappoints. Had the carbonara today with some fresh focaccia to mop up the delicious creamy sauce. The pasta is unquestionably hand made and fresh. A delicious lunch.
Excellent food and service. Great value as well!
Excellent food and service!
My friend and I went for dinner last night and the experience at Gia Cantina was wonderful. Everything is very well priced, our server Kenzie did a fantastic job and the food was incredible.
I will definitely recommend it to my friends and family.
good wine list, usually the chicken is really good but this time is was burnt, vegetables and pasta lacking taste. Server and staff are nice.
Wonderful food, excellent service from Jess!
Food exceptional. Zuchini grille, the salade peche and tomate wow. The fillet de manzo exceptional. The wine-list impressive. Service friendly and fast, the environment cool. Only the foccia was a little behind the top standard of everything else. Definitely a recommendation!
Cantina Gai had a great atmosphere, decor ambiance. The servers were amazing, knowledgeable, and attentive. The food was amazing, can't say enough and they even made my pregnant friend a mocktail! All around a wonderful experience.
Way too loud to be enjoyable. They need to change the menu. It has been identical since the bistro opened
Wonderful brunch! We had the eggs benedict, grilled grapefruit and blueberry pancakes - absolutely delicious.
ONE OF THE BEST EVENING DINING EXPERIENCES IN OTTAWA. Cantina Gia is everything you want on a night out. Great drinks, food & service. Playlist was world class too.
We had an amazing dinner. Great friendly service, delicious cocktails! We asked Kenzie to bring us food…and she chose an excellent selection for three people that we ate family style. Everything was fresh, beautifully served, and they even offered foccacia to pick up the sauces when dishes were near empty. I can hardly wait to go back!
Ordered a carbonara and it doesn't taste like carbonara at all.
Lots of pepper, some lemony taste.
Cool place, food was very good and nice ambience for a lunch like we did (or brunch).
