The service was very good, but the tiramisu was overly sweet so I did not enjoy it. We also didn't like how noisy the room was, feels more like inside a bar than a restaurant, we had to raise our voices to hear each other. The personnel is very nice and attentive though.

Have been here twice and loved it both times. IBN is a great place to go for a date night or special dinner. First time we had the Calamari, Osso Buco and Chicken Parmesan. Both fabulous. Last time we had the bruschetta, the seafood risotto and spaghetti and meatballs. Also excellent. Please bring back the Chicken Parmesan! Our fav place in Saint John.

Love this restaurant but, was disappointed with all the flies around our table. We were a seating of eight in the front window, some of whom were guests from out of town. We had many flies swarming around the window, and our table and, landing on our food and in our drinks.

From the moment we arrived and were led to a lovely table by the window, our experience was first class.

Our server George Steeves was knowledgeable and personable providing just the right degree of attentiveness.

We shared an anti-pasta. a salad and two main courses and each one was prepared and presented in an outstanding manner.

We highly recommend Italian By Night and even though we live about an hour away, we will be dining there again!!

Liane was the perfect server - there when you needed her, kept us informed, let us eat at our own pace, and knew which menu items would fit our GF requirements.
The food was tasty and plentiful and the company was amazing! Thanks!

We enjoyed our experience, as always. Friends from Ontario were impressed. We appreciated the discrete birthday acknowledgement. No singing servers, just bubbly. Our server was very personable. And we were not pressured to leave. We were able to finish our conversation in comfort even though the staff were preparing for the next day.

Love coming to Italian by Night! Every time I go I come out full and satisfied. Their espresso beverages are phenomenal and pair very nicely with most of their desserts (I have a cappuccino and tiramisu). My favorite part is the serving size of food! Enough to give you a good taste and a full belly, but you won't be left feeling disgustingly full.

This was our first time at this new location. We made a reservation about a week in advance and didn’t have trouble getting the times we wanted. Our server was great, very knowledgeable and professional. I love the interior and how they kept a few of the Bustin furniture items. The food delivery was quite slow, so don’t come in expecting a quick in and out. I had a halibut special and it was delicious. Food arrives hot and very well presented. A friend had a tenderloin special and was surprised at the small portion of starch given Overall our experience was very good, the food was delicious however a bit pricy for the amount given. Pasta dishes seem more plentiful

Totally disappointed. Had to sit on the bar although early Reservation.
Food was 'artificial' nothing to do with italian cuisine. Would recommend to send the cook for 2 months to Italy !!!!! All in all a bad experience.

Another lovely meal at IbN. Great service by Lydia and trainee Courtney- very knowledgable and friendly. We arrived at 6 and by 6:30-7 it was hopping and we could no longer hear the music. We were a table of six yet had no trouble carrying on a conversation. All in all a restaurant full of people just enjoying a night out😊

Italian by night is my favorite restaurant in Saint John. The food is always good, the ambiance is very cosmopolitan. Always great service. Love the hot face cloths! The only criticism I have and I don't know if there is a fix but if it's busy and you are seated at middle tables it can be quite loud and hard to hear each other talk. I like perimeter seating.

Italian by Night is quickly becoming Saint John's Premiere Italian cuisine restaurant. Our server Mallory was very knowledgable, helpful, and attentive. The food was, as we'd come to expect, nothing short of spectacular, and very well presented.
Thanks again for a wonderful dining experience!

The place was very busy. Service was very good and quick, but with there was a kid running around and people at tables with ball caps backwards which was not what I expected. Maybe it was just too early (6:30 pm Friday).

The appetizers were amazing (risotto balls and beet salad) and the main dishes (House-made pasta, baby clams, grape tomatoes, pancetta, garlic, white wine, parsley, fresh focaccia) as well as the Ravioli of the day were very good. We had the Italian bread pudding laced with chocolate, drizzled with warm butterscotch sauce and Maldon sea salt flakes for dessert which was fantastic.

Our server was bilingual and very courteous. Overall, the meal was worth the drive from Moncton.
