My experience was absolutely amazing. I was a little misled by the fact that this place is referred to a "cafe." In my case it worked out very well but I am sure it could catch others off guard. The food was incredible and they had vegan options.

It’s a cute cafe but the food was mediocre and not very well seasoned. The table was missing basic salt and pepper which could’ve helped the food. Also our request for chilli flakes was forgotten.

Love this place - a little loud for a personal conversation. But the food and service makes up for it.

The food was fantastic but there was a VERY noisy table that was clearly affecting every table. It was unfortunate that the wait staff wasn’t trained to handle a situation like that since it is such a confined but open space. It honestly overpowered and ruined our experience.

Amazing authentic Italian cuisine! An absolute must if you are in the Ottawa area. Would travel to Ottawa just to eat at the Dreamland!

Amazing Italian foods! The “Can I truffle you for mushrooms” was clearly the top choice. My friend and I ordered the same thing. The garlic butter toast was just exceptional, so crispy but light and not hard to bit into! Amazing vibe and excellent service. What a gem in Little Italy, Ottawa.

Had a lovely experience shared with family. Wonderful service, excellent food but the restaurant is small therefore noisy making conversation in a large group of 7 difficult at times.

Food and service- all good. Only complaint was the noise level. Many times during our meal, we had a hard time hearing each other. Even the waitresses were speaking in a loud voice. It made the experience a bit uncomfortable.

Unfortunately we found the music much too loud. Hard to hear conversation at the table between the music and the people. Place is toooo small to have music that loud. Sorry

The food was incredible. Hot and fresh—obviously not sitting around under lights. The staff are warm and welcoming. It’s special when the chef comes to check in too! Love this little gem and will be back.

Chose this place for my birthday party because I was dreaming about their lemon pesto pasta. Enjoyed by all including vegetarians. Instead of birthday cake, I took home an xtra kale salad - it was THAT good. Very good at accommodating gluten free and non meat eaters.

Cute little pasta place located in Little Italy. There are not many tables, so if you plan on visiting - Make à reservation. They serve unique and tasty pasta dishes for every kind of preference. You are sure to find a meal you love!
