Homemade pasta dishes were wonderful. We had a server with attitude unfortunately but we did let management know when we left. But the food was outstanding and sitting outside in the courtyard was wonderful

Arrived at 2:30 p.m on Friday.Twelve tables were open. We told the hostess that we were looking for capaccino/coffee and dessert. We were told they could only serve us if we were eating . We left ,went a short distance and spent money elsewhere. Too bad. The courtyard looked good

We used to live in Ottawa and this was one of the best Italian restaurants around! The food is home made. If you want really good pasta, and super friendly service, then you'll love Mamma Grazzi's. We return every time we return to Ottawa - yum!

Was there last weekend with my wife and asked for the special of the day and it was terrible food/pasta with sauce that I could not eat.Paid $25 for the special food and walked out to go to a real restaurant to eat. Do not go there if you are hungry and like to eat decent food.

My wife and I stopped at the Mamma Grazzi's for dinner. We sat inside instead of the terrace. We were alone inside the small dining room. As an entree, my wife and I share the Sautéed Scallops. The scallops were soft, spicy and delicious. For the main meal, my wife had the Pollo Alla Gorgonzola and myself, the Madagascar. My... More

We were in town for the marathon and decided to carb load at Mama Grazzis. The location was incredibly convenient (right near the market) , and the courtyard was welcoming ! Our server was pleasant, but it definately seemed as if they were a little understaffed for the evening. The food seemed very fresh, however was not as flavorful as... More

Service was excellent. I do not why they have to make all the dishes very spicy but for me it's unpleasent. My friends plate was so spicy that he did not finished it. The bathrooms need a very good. scrubdown. Before you go in look throught the windos on the sidewalk and you will be in for a surprise .

I went to Mamma Grazzi's for a group meal for a pharmacy meeting. The bread was good. I had the Bruschetta as an appetizer. It was so full of garlic, the whole table could smell it, but I liked it. I had Fettuccini with grilled vegetables and goat cheese. It was nice and creamy. I had Tiramisu for dessert. Those... More

Should be excellent. Fabulous location near the market in Ottawa in a lovely stone building. An Italian restaurant with a wide range of possible options. However, once inside it's clear from the bored staff, perfunctory service, and complete lack of flexibility in their food ("we don't allow any substitution") that this restaurant doesn't need to focus on discriminating diners, as...
