    Italian by Night goes above and beyond to provide an exceptional dining experience. The pasta sauce (on all of their dishes) is literally the best I have ever had. It is truly a treat to dine there.

    What can I say about this place? Our server was amazing....funny, attentive and made our experience that much better. The food was excellent, and the atmosphere joyful. We even had the owner come and chat with us, which was very authentic and enjoyable. This is a great place to create memories.

    We go to Italian by Night once a year when we are in town. Last night all 3 of us ordered the "special" which was beef tenderloin with mashed potatoes (it should be noted that the special as they call it is still the most expensive dish on the menu) I asked if we could substitute fries for the mashed potatoes for one of the meals and was met with a hard NO. OK, no biggie I guess....then we all ordered medium rare and all got medium and one was even medium well....the waiter, who was very good and a lot of fun confirmed all were overcooked, but didn't offer to bring us new steaks, so we all ate them, The taste was good, but for any steak lovers, this was very disappointing especially given the significant price tag. We didn't want to completely ruin our dining experience by making a big scene (even though we had every right to do so). One of us ordered a dessert and then the cheque came. No apologies for the poorly cooked food or even a discount or comped dessert. I left a good tip, but will NEVER order steak in that restaurant again. The chef needs to learn what medium rare means!!!!

    Ambience and service was lovely. Appetizers good but salad portion very small for price tag. New item of shrimp risotto, not good. Risotto watery, asparagus only ends and woody. Quantity of shrimp excellent , little salt would have improved flavor greatly.

    We took my parents for their 50th wedding anniversary, the service and food at IBN was great. We requested a chilled bottle of Prosecco for our arrival and it was there, in ice and our glasses had been filled. The service staff was outstanding and kept checking to make things were going well.
