    We went to IBN for Mother’s Day and everything was perfect, from start to finish. The kitchen was on point as usual, and there was a great vibe in the restaurant. Our server Victoria was fantastic!!! She was personable, professional, and efficient. We are in again for another event and requested her as our server. 10/10.

    Expecting a little more. Caesar salad was okay at best. Calamari was very good. Our pastas were good but not great. Scallops in both were spot on. Just expected a little more. We are foodies and traveled from Moncton for the dinner.

    We were seated promptly, service was excellent, food was amazing. I would give them extra credit for not going the cheap road on toilet paper as you would be amazed at how many high end restaurants and hotels only have 1 ply toilet paper but not Italian by Night. Amazing Restaurant all around!

    The service was quick, and our server was outstanding. You could tell she cared about her job. Very knowledgeable, charismatic, kind and professional. Girl really knows customer service. The dessert was impeccable. I would go again just for the Torta. It was all and all an extremely pleasant experience and we will be visiting again.

    I had the most amazing experience at Italian by Night. We had a large group and were seated in the Boston room where we had incredible service and amazing food. The gnocchi was superb, the cocktails were great, and the desserts were top notch. I would highly recommend this place to anyone that enjoys fine dining and loves Italian cuisine.

    I love everything about IbN. I go often and generally feel like getting the chicken parm at any Italian restaurant is generally a cop out but I tried it and it was SO damn good, so too was our server Emma and everything else about our dinner. Love it here.

    I would not recommend steak or chicken. They could not get the steak cooked past raw after 2 attempts, we switched to chicken and it was not cooked either. Stick to pizza and pasta which are delicious.
