Waitress was rude and shady due to my age. Just because I’m not a rich, or an adult, doesn’t mean I shouldn’t be treated poorly. Food was amazing though, very expensive, but worth it.

A fabulous Chop Chop experience at IBN. They do things perfectly. The ambiance, wait staff are exceptional and the food is delicious. Go there, as many times as you can, you won’t regret it.

Great food and ambiance. One of the better restaurants in the Maritimes. Try several items and share with your dinner partner because there are way too many good looking items to not sample several

Fantastic food with great service, well worth the penny paid!
Italian by Night is a rare breed of higher class dining not casually found in the Maritimes!
Was glad to find such a restaurant to share such an evening with my spouse in!

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This was our second visit to Italian by Night and were pleased that our expectations strongly superseded our first time.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.
