This was literally one of the worst experiences I have had at a restaurant. Initial drink order took forever. Ordered bruschetta that was ice cold. Waiter was so not engaged and the mains were so salty it was awful. Halfway through our dinner the kitchen staff cranked some rap music that was extremely derogatory to women. I will never step...

This place was BAD. We were escorted to a second level where two other tables sat in silence. Various servers came by - no Prosecco, no cocktail list...limited wine list. A lot of questions about the menu were answered with "no, we don't do that". Food was just awful. Cold...mine was uneven in temperature leading me to believe it was... More

I discovered this restaurant about 10 years ago and I've been going a few times a year since. But up until a year ago it hasn't been the same. The atmosphere is still the same but the service from some staff isn't the best and the food has gone down hill. The noodles weren't cooked one time last year and... More

We were looking for a place in the market to eat, and happened upon this little gem. We didn't have reservations and it was a Friday night but we didn't have a long wait, even though it was busy. The service was very good. Had a nice bottle of wine and delicious pasta and creme brûlée for dessert. Reasonably priced... More

The price is ok. Servers were friendly. Pasta was delicious. Location is convenient for those living near Byward Market. Good for families.

While the food was good, though a little overpriced, the extremely poor flippant attitude of the server ruined the experience. I have not had such poor service in years. Will not be back.

It was a spontaneous decision to have dinner here on a stop-over in Ottawa as the courtyard looked inviting and it was a fine evening. The charm of dining al fresco was the highlight of an otherwise forgettable evening meal out. Both our pasta dishes were lackluster, I had a mushroom based one and it was flavourless, my partner had... More

We have visited Mamma Grazzi's Kitchen at least six times on our various trips to Ottawa. Our latest visit was on a cold January night. The restaurant was fairly quiet and the service provided by Dragan and his team was friendly. We usually order pasta or pizza, but this time we decided to try the Pollo Moina and the Salmon... More

The food is a tad expensive, but is very good and fresh. Nice and quiet, and a great location. The service is prompt and friendly, and you are made to feel welcome. All in all, a nice place for a meal.

Came with a large group of co-workers (10 ppl); server (may have been owner) was attentive and accommodating. Food was good. Most of our group ordered pasta dishes. Portions are HUGE, so come hungry!
