We had a great evening out with friends and really enjoyed our meal, wine, and our server was very personable and humorous. The restaurant itself has excellent ambience, we had a nice corner window seat.

We all arrived at the same time and are table was waiting for us. We all enjoyed a drink (or two) an apps. I had the Fritto Misto (My fav). And the table had a couple pizza's which was delicious. My entrée was Parmigiano Di Pollo and it was amazing. The homemade pasta like nothing Ive have before. Dessert was Tiramisu and it was out of this world to die for. Everything about Italian by Night from the décor atmosphere and serves I would have to give a 10 star if I could. Can't wait to book my next visit Looking forward to try more on the menu.

We were very pleased with the wine and food menus -- extensive but not overwhelming -- and quality, Desserts were especially well presented and it was a delight to be waited on by George. Definitely anticipate a return visit.

I started with a glass of chianti that was excellent and very reasonably priced. The bruchetta was fresh, creative, beautifully presented and delicious. The fish of the day was cod wrapped in pancetta, perfectly prepared and presented. For desert I ordered the homemade sorbet, three espresso cups filled with explosive fruit flavour. A brilliant meal, excellent service in beautiful surrondings.

This was our first time at Italian by Night Food was absolutely amazing, but the service was subpar. Other tables around us seemed to receive great service, but we unfortunately did not (long wait to place our order, no check ups during our meal, empty water, half eaten dish not packed up to go, ....). Very disappointing as the food was incredible...

I was impressed and awed with the decor, ambiance, service and food quality at Italian by Night! We’re lucky to have an establishment of this caliber in Saint John, NB. By far it’s the best restaurant in town.

Had a very good meal ,food was excellent. Atmosphere was also excellent and staff very friendly. Sitting with our backs to the open kitchen at the chefs table I found it was too warm, but we had changed our reservation from four to five at the last moment and chefs table was only option. Overall our experience at IBN was top notch.

Food was great, service was good. Pricing was extreme and I felt like I was sitting on top of the people at the two tables next to us. It’s too open and exposed. I could hear the conversation happening beside us. I had to be careful standing from my chair as I could have elbowed someone at another table. If I’m going to pay that much for a bottle of wine and dinner with my husband, I prefer it to be in a cozier setting.

Tasty food and attentive service. Price point is not indicative of portion size. $17 caprese salad for one 1/2” slice of tomato with a piece of cheese wrapped prosciutto over a cup of wilted spinach. Not what we expected. Respectable Italian dining shouldn’t feel like a rip off, it should leave you feeling like your grandmother forced another helping on you.

The food is good, but the service is not. The hostess was very short with us even though we made a reservation and our table wasn't ready. All of the staff was clearly frantic with how busy the restaurant was, I just feel like maybe they should hire more people if they cannot handle the restaurant at capacity.
