Italian by Night
Italian by Night is an urban Italian restaurant and bar with a cuisine focused on combining imported Italian ingredients with local seasonal ingredients. We use old world techniques in a modern kitchen.
Went for a first experience, husbands birthday. Food and service was amazing! Truly enjoyed the entire evening!
We all agreed that the food was wonderful, both in presentation and taste. The staff were great and I doubt our experience could be improved on. We look forward to going back again very soon.
It was excellent as always. Delicious food and excellent service
I had the penne sambucca and it was amazing.
the pasta was so delicious I could have eaten it with just butter.
definitely worth the price.
now I can hardly wait to go back and try the gnocchi!!
We all enjoyed our meals. They did an excellent job of accommodating allergies. We were glad to have gone on a Wednesday night which was quieter.
Absolutely fantastic service and food! Will definitely be returning to try more items on the menu. Great house wine prices.
The best spot in Saint John! Staff and food is incredible. The owners are always onsite and greet their guests in person.
Very good food, you could tell everything was super fresh. Our waiter was very patient with people at our table who I know were taking a very long time to order, and he was also very conversational and made the experience personal. We had to sit by the entrance door, which was expected since I made somewhat late reservations for the day before mother’s day, but was overall still very good. Without a doubt I will be back many times.
Great place in Saint-John ! Went there twice during a business trip. I’ve had the beef tenderloin and the veal parmigiana. Both were simple, but delicious. This is what italian-inspired cuisine is all about : freshness of ingredients and simplicity in preparation.
Special thanks to the owner, who seems truly dedicated to meet high standards for her restaurant, and to Emmanuelle, who definitely enlightened my evenings with her great service and her sincere smile !
This is our favourite uptown Saint John restaurant, bar none.
Wonderful meal from appetizers (mussels were very good), mains, to desserts. Our server had a new trainee with her and she did very well in her knowledge of menu and providing good service.
We had a lovely meal at this restaurant. We told the waiter of our time constraint and he made it happen. Both had asparagus soup for starters while my wife had the Lamb and I had the scoglio. The lamb was very tender and tasty my Sciglio full of flavor and the fettuccine cooked al dante
Fantastic as always. Our wait staff was phenomenal. Couldn't have had a better evening
Great restaurant in uptown Saint John. This visit was for burger week and the DIN burger did not disappoint. Also, the staff and service here is is always on point. I always recommend anyone to check this place out.
Food and wine was fantastic as always. Dinning room was a little loud.
Having said that we visited our favourite spot for burger week, the burger served left to be desired. With that said, you do not typically visit an Italian restaurant for a burger and with that in mind, the service was still second to none and the atmosphere was just as good as any other visit. And for their everyday menu, you must start with the cheese and cured meats bored and if you love steak, no other restaurant can make a medium rare steak as good.
We loved Italian by Night - the food and service were excellent. The only "negative" comment was that it was a bit noisy and not quite the intimate dining experience we had thought it would be. However we thoroughly enjoyed the evening and would certainly come back
Was burger week. We could only go once because hubby is away rest of week. Super happy we picked Italian by Night it was a awesome burger and the fries were awesome too
As usual, the food & the service was outstanding!!!
We have dined at your establishment on a few occasions, even when you were on King Street, and have recommended your restaurant to many people. The servers are amazing. Their knowledge of the food they are serving is very helpful in making selections. The atmosphere that has been created adds so much to the dining experience.
Our most recent reservation was on a Friday night at 6:00 and the noise level was quite high. It was just the two of us and at one point we could hardly hear each other. In the future we will be sure to ask for either a table either at the window or back wall. We feel this is Saint John's best restaurant.
This was our second visit to this fabulous restaurant. This visit was for our anniversary and we were treated to a glass of Prosecco "on the house" which was a nice touch. We love the uptown chic atmosphere and the wonderful service at Italian by Night. The cuisine is excellent . The Risotto di Mare was amazing as was the tenderloin special. The Pavlova was unique but very pleasant. Can't wait to go back
The energy of the restaurant is electric!
We love the sophisticated but casual atmosphere which adds to the amazing food and the top notch service by all the staff. The food is prepared and presented in an elegant and simple manner. If you are looking for authentic, high quality Italian food in New Brunswick then Italian by Night has no equal.
We plan to return soon and often.
First time there
Really enjoyed the experience
Had a perfectly seasoned medium rare 10oz tenderloin steak. It was delicious and the service was second to none!
Great Italian meal for a restaurant that doesn't specialize in Italian food. Decent meal for a restaurant that does. Excellent service. Limited menu.
We did not get served our meals for over an our from ordering. Most of the meals were cold.
Went with a group of 8 and everyone loved their food, from appetizers to dessert. I especially enjoyed the polenta and pavlova. Great server. Will be back!
Our server, Danielle, was FANTASTIC. Very impressed!
P.S.: the warm cloths were an excellent bonus.
P.P.S.: The tiramisu made me happy.
Took friends to celebrate 50 years as it was recommended by a friend. Was an excellent choice. Food was excellent. Waitress was attentive not intrusive. Ambiance was interesting as the restored the old interior. Our table for 5 was a bit large for conversation. Will definitely return.
Wonderful meal and evening with friends. Easy to make reservation online and great options on menu.
Fantastic meal once again...ventured out of my regular pick from the menu to try something new (tried the Scoglio) and it did not disappoint.
Had guests from out of town visiting and they all loved IbyN. Thank you for a great evening.
The service was lovely, and our waitress was quick and very friendly, checking on us often. The food however was very disappointing this visit, very small portion sizes and the overall quality was just not there. Our appetizer was Bruschetta 3 ways, with the first being a bit of a surprise at an Italian restaurant, bread topped with hummus, next the pea spread, although tasty for me was just not enjoyed by the other members of our party. Last, the tomato bruschetta was equally disappointing, no taste to the tomatoes and flat on the olive oil and garlic. Having had the bruschetta on previous visits with grilled juicy mushrooms, lively garlic, and savory olive options I felt my out of town guests were ripped off to what could have been. The bottle of red wine was lovely to accompany the Risotto di Mare, which was beautiful tasting but just fell short on the portion size. One scallop and very small piece of salmon and barely enough grains of rice to call it an entree did not satisfy the appetites. My husband who is not a huge eater poured himself a bowl of cereal once we arrived home. The other 2 entrees were delicious but just VERY small portion sizes again.
Excellent ambience! Fantastic service!! Our server was fantastic
Out standing from start to finish, would encourage every one to go.
Food and service was excellent. Mt Short rib was a nice size portion. My wife have the ravioli and I felt her portion was a bit small for the cost. Appetizer was also a bit small for the cost. No breads served. All the food tasted fantastic and the waiter was wonderful.
Great food and atmosphere. My (11yo) daughter left and said she felt like royalty. Perfect evening out.
BUT it was loud...as there is a bar underneath the restaurant.
Usually great, last few times flavours seemed off in food and food was not heat hot.
seemed unusually slow for a Friday night.
The person that wanted to go to Italian by Night had been to Italy and was meh about it. I didn't find that there was anything about it worth the hype or the pricing. I really didn't know what to expect, everything sounded exotic. It wasn't bad but it wasn't anything special either.
