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

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.

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.

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

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!

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.

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.

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!!
