Need to expand seafood and veggie options. Do not ever put chicken broil into rice without explicitly telling this to clients!!!

Food was amazing, the place looked fantastic, and the service was wonderful! However, it was chilly and noisy in the restaurant. Some noise cancelling products would be a good investment for this great restaurant.

Our dining experience was exceptional. The soup was hot and very flavourful, the main course was fabulous. We shared a dessert that was also very great.

Loved the overall ambiance, service was outstanding. We shared a pizza for an appetizer, it was outstanding. Had tenderlion, perfectly cooked. Bread pudding for dessert, it was lovely and beautiful presentation. Only complaint, table for 2 was a little close for comfort to the next table

This was our second visit to Italian by Night and were pleased that our expectations strongly superseded our first time. It may be because we chose a much earlier time to eat 17;45 and the place had hardly any patrons. Our server was tremendous with a great sense of humor and very gracious serving techniques that we wouldn't have expected. Everyone enjoyed their dinner immensely, and because of that alone we will likely return more often. We observed that as we had ended our meal and heading out the ambient noise level had increased considerably and you could no longer hear the music in the background. I realize that some parties enjoy the lively conversation that goes around the room, but for us we prefer a much quieter environment.

Food was good. We were a party of two with serving of seafood pasta dish and a steak dish. Both were enjoyed and presented well. Server was personable and certainly enhanced our visit. The noise level was a little higher than what you may wish for but not so loud to interfere with conversation at our table. Overall our visit was very good and we certainly will return and would recommend to anyone who enjoys fine food.

I've been wanting to try Italian by Night for years now, I've consistently heard very positive and even glowing reviews of their food and finally did on Sat. Our table had brushetta to start which was surprisingly very bland and we didn't finish the 4 pieces at our table. I ordered the scallopini di pollo parmigiana over the ravioli which sounded very good as well. The chicken in the scallopini was ok, moist and breaded with cheese but lacked flavour. The pasta was very bland, a near tasteless tomato sauce made it like eating plain cooked fettuccini with a handful of diced tomatoes mixed in. Someone ordered the house made stuffed ravioli which I tried as well and it was equally bland and a small portion. Our server was very good, pleasant and took care of our table well, the restaurant itself is very nice with fantastic ambience but overall I was expecting much more from the food and was ultimately disappointed.

Was really looking forward to an evening out with my husband......ordered appetizer and received it quickly but asked for Marina Sauce on the side and by time we got it our appetizer was cold and we did not eat it....main meal was cold as well.

Could not read the menu without my flashlight as it was too dark to read and it is SO LOUD in there that you can't have a conversation without yelling.

I was happy to leave and go for drinks elsewhere.

For a restaurant of this caliber, one would expect that they would check that everything is good, especially after the customer complains. We indicated the coffee was cold and when they served the coffee again it was cold, waitress didn’t even check, just said oh it is the last of the pot!! Really not good service.

We enjoyed our first visit very much. The menu choices were delectable and thus we had trouble deciding. Our meals were delicious! We enjoyed our waiter however it took forever for our mains to arrive- over an hour! The restaurant was busy but it’s always busy. The lengthy wait was not acknowledged nor were we advised of what was amiss or when we could expect our meals. We noted there appeared to only be 3 wait staff to serve a large dining room so perhaps some called in sick. Fortunately we weren’t in a hurry and it was worth the wait.

We had reserved a few weeks prior. Ended up with a table almost at the washroom entrance. It was incredibly noisy with cold drafts. We were all cold. Service was extremely slow and several menu items not available , even on the wine list. When food came it was good but was almost 2 hours after we arrived. Have been here several times before so and had a better time so will try again , but this time was a disappointment .

Italian by Night never disappoints. The ambiance is one that you find yourself hoping your meal will be delayed so you can relax with friends and soak in the warmth of the atmosphere. Always a cozy pleasure.
