Italian
A family owned business since 1971, Restaurant Di Menna was a
simple pizzeria offering delivery service and take­out. The popularity of
the pizza place was undeniable, and founder Franco Di Menna
decided to expand his business next door: the pizzeria now had a
dining room. Evolving in the tasteful world of Italian cuisine, Franco Di
Menna kept trying new recipes and creating delicious meals. In 1988,
the restaurant went under major renovations to match its high quality
menu. Already mixing fine dining and take­out, Restaurant Di Menna
introduced frozen ‘oven ready’ meals and fresh sauces in 2005. Fast forward
to 2016, the dining room was completely renovated and a sit-down
bar serving specialty cocktails and Italian beers was added.

We were expecting finer cuisine for the price charged. The place looked amazing with some great decor, lighting, and ambiance. However, the food for the price was underwhelming (Surf N Turf and Scaloppini Marsala).

A neighbourhood gem. My friends and I have had our last Christmas season dinner here the last 2 years and loved it. Service is absolutely outstanding: friendly, fast, and outgoing. Emily brought an extra chair for my sprained ankle to rest on, took photos for us, etc. Most of us went with the table d'hote. We started with complimentary bruschetta and hot crusty rolls. The appetizers were the standout, especially the arancini and fried calamari. Salads were dressed with a tasty, simple dressing but perhaps slightly overdressed. Mains were largely successful: generous portions on the beef short rib, grilled chicken salad, and tortellini. For me, the one miss was the gnocchi: quite heavy and bland served with a simple tomato sauce - I got the impression they were either not home-made, or cooked from frozen. We mostly had a refreshing sorbetto for dessert and good strong coffee. The manager with whom I booked the reservation actually left a note to the server to send us a round of free digestifs after the meal, as a thank-you and as a way to make up for an oversight on Open Table's part actually. We gratefully accepted them. It was a nice casual dinner, perfect for catching up with good friends.

We enjoyed our family Christmas dinner. A little frustrated by waitress asking which language qe prefer to be served in only for her to continue in French. But would still return, food was very good. Nice place to relax and chat between meals, they aren't in a hurry to kick you out.

The outside of the restaurant has barely changed since 1977, the last time I was there. It seems that the restaurant space has shrunk.

The pizza was excellent.

The service very attentive.

The price of food (25$ for a large pizza all dress) and 35$ for a bottle Chianti seemed to me quite reasonable.

The only downside, the kid on the adjacent table did not stop screaming the whole time, and the parents did Nothing to tone him down. Worst, the father kept teasing him which in no way helped the situation. We left the restaurant much earlier than we would have like because of this unpleasant situation.

I will come back but I hope this time to find a more quiet place! JF

The restaurant was excellent, from food to service. I was however very disappointed that they didn’t accept my Open Table coupons claiming that numerous frauds have occured with these. I would like to be compensated for this - are the OpenTable coupons worthless?!!?

Some of the best pizza in town. Experience suffered from the service. Not very attentive nor experienced.
The ambiance is modern but I would prefer the old-school Italian feel.

Lunch service was not busy and we spent two hours there mostly waiting for service.
The food was less than great in terms of taste and texture. The lunch pizza special was especially disappointing considering this has been a pizza establishment for generations.

Overall ambience is good and service is on point. Clean restaurants. Food is overpriced for what you get. The pizza sauce seemed like it was straight out a can. The minestrone soup was more like vegetables with a touch of broth. the French fry were small portions.
( waiter could have advised us if we were splitting to take 2) Food in the past was much better and was worth the price compared to your corner pizza place. The beer was also higher priced compared to many other restaurants in town.

What a great neighbourhood place! Authentic Italian food, recommended by our Italian-Canadian friend as authentic. Service is friendly, fast but not rushed or pressuring. We got free bruschetta and warm rolls and butter as we sat down. We started with a cold antipasti platter: a nice selection of cold cuts, cheese, and some excellent roasted my one criticism is that the huge TV in the bar area overwhelms everything else. Parking is ample behind the building or on the street. This is a great place to meet up with friends or have a date night with your spouse or partner. If I lived closer, I would be there all the time.

La décoration très ordinaire et sans style nous a déçus. Les pâtes aux fruits de mer étaient moyennes et les penne arrabiata pas très bonnes. Les bruschetta et les arrancis étaient excellents mais ce n'est pas suffisant pour une bonne expérience.

Was visiting from the States and found this spot on Open Table. Friendly atmosphere great food and very large portions the six of us were very pleased with our meals . Given that three people in my party grew up in Italy and they gave the thumbs up for the food one can only surmise that it’s genuinely authentic !!

I loved the restaurants ambiance! It was very elegant and tastefully decorated. Our server was very helpful with the menu and checked in on us enough to make sure we were nothing but happy. The food was immaculate! From the FREE bruschetta to the pasta and pizza, every dish was mouthwatering and had us wanting more! The serving sizes were more than enough, great for sharing! I would definitely recommend Di Menna to everyone and I can’t wait to go back.

Went back to this restaurant after their renovation. Very good reno and new menu.
Unfortunately on Saturday early evening they were sold out o a table hote apperizer. No offer to substitite.
Did not have a good start for us.
At the end restaurant offered a digestive as a "compensation" for being short.
Frankly disappointed as we were looking forward to rediscover the restaurant we often went o.
