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.
Awesome food, awesome staff, beautiful atmosphere although slightly noisy - but not enough to turn me away.
Outstanding as always! Thank you for a wonderful evening.
Service was good. Food nice and a good choice of wine.
A wonderful experience all around.
Delicious food and great service!
I would definitely recommend. Great ambience! The food lately though has been hit or miss. I ordered the spaghetti and it literally looked like Ragu. I was very disappointed. Not much taste either. Dessert was great. Appetizer, caprese - so so. Not my best meal. Love the atmosphere there though.
Italian done with imagination and creativity. We had two dinners here during our week stay in St John. Some of the best pasta dishes I have ever eaten. Bravo
Have a wonderful time with my sister who was visiting from Ontario and her childhood friend. The atmosphere was perfect, food superb as was the service. Throughly enjoyed our evening and would highly recommend it.
The food quality is good, it was a lovely environment. Acoustics a bit loud and we felt like we needed to shout. I was pleasantly surprised to see such a nice restaurant in a small town.
Fabulous restaurant. I ate the lasagna and my husband had the ravioli. Quick service and both meals exceeded our expectations! Superb!
Incredible menu. Debatably the best Italian I’ve had outside of Italy. A++ service
Every time I have dined at Italian by Night has been a wonderful experience. Hats off to all who make this possible!
The food and service were awesome. The Scoglio was delicious and I'd highly recommend the tiramisu if you have room for it after dinner
Excellent food. Great service. Wonderful atmosphere. This is our go-to restaurant whenever my wife and I are in Saint John. Love IbN.
Had a wonderful evening, the four persons with me and my wife were very pleased with the restaurant. This last comment is not a complaint but we did find it a little noisy during the early part of the evening but this was due to the circumstance of three large parties (12, 22 and aproximately another 10) in our imme3diate vicinity. Understand that there is a private room, and will perhaps enquire into this as a option another time we have 6-10 people for a meal.
Great food. This place is popular so reservations are advised. Can get noisy making it hard to have a conversation.
Never disappointed at IBN. Fantastic uptown SJ dining experience.
My third or fourth time and I’ve never been disappointed. Always great.
The Wednesday evening experience was wonderful!!
Thursday evening I returned to have dinner with my wife and sat at a window seat. The ambience, food, service was again wonderful! The only negative was the large windows facing Germain St. should be cleaned as often as needed. The one where we were sitting could have been cleaner.
Have a great day!

I always love this restaurant but was a little disappointed in the quality of food this time. The seafood dish was very bland and didn’t have much taste the veal was over cooked and we were seated in the middle of the restaurant and found it extremely noisy
Excellent food and service. Very enjoyable evening. Tiramisu was great.
amazing dinner. in from toronto with customers and extremely pleasant atmosphere and great staff. back again for sure
The ambience and location of the Italian by night is beautiful. We really enjoyed our table as well as our server. The value of the food quantity as well as quality is definitely match to its price. You certainly get what you pay for.
We found our mixed drinks, as a few at our table ordered gin and tonic as well as rum and Coke, to be very weak. We found out that they’re single shot is only 1 ounce; where most standard mixed drinks are at least 1.25-1.5 oz.
Other than that, our food order was quite varied from pizza, pasta, tenderloin and gnocchi- and each dish was fantastic!
Excellent food , great service. This was a complete new menue sonce my last visit on May 24th.I had the Penne Capesante Carbonara it had some scallops and a ton of mini clams which I was very surprise and pleased to see because it was not mentioned on the description on the menue.The sauce was to die for.My husband had your Lasagna. Grande.It was delicious. I am missing my favorite dish from last month menue.Risotto with seafood and smoke salmon.Please bring it back!!!
Good food at reasonable prices. Dining area is roomy comfortably
Food and service was excellent. It was very noisy!
Very good food and service. It was packed, but the service was still very prompt and friendly. Would go back if we are ever in Saint John again
Very good food and fantastic experience!! Worth a visit.
Lovely food, fantastic server. A little noisy the atmosphere but was prepared for it
Great food and excellent service. Highly recommend.
An enjoyable night out in beautiful lively surroundings. Friendly staff and dependably good food. Strongly recommended.
Our wait was lengthy and would have been nice to have a baguette or something for the table other than an appetizer .
We had a reservation for two and instead of having us sit at a table for 2. They sat us at a table for 4 next to the door. We weren’t very pleased at this, other than that; the overall experience was good.
Nice atmosphere and good service. I had the Italian Sausage pizza and was so salty that it was barely edible. Other items at our table were OK.
A bit disappointed with the main course:( we asked for a medium-well lamb but it was almost rare. The size of the portion was also small :(
The desert and appetizers were exceptional.
My wife and I dined here while on a vacation to New Brunswick and Nova Scotia. As best we could tell, St John is not a town noted for great restaurants but we really enjoyed Italian By Night. The food and service were excellent. The place was about full but we had a nice table by a window overlooking the street. The noise level was moderate considering how full the dining room was. The only shortcoming I can note is that like the other restaurants in New Brunswick and Nova Scotia that we dined at, most of which were highly rated on Open Table, the wine list was quite limited. Overall, I highly recommend Italian By Night.
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!!
