The restaurant has a nice, cozy atmosphere and the service is very good. The food came very fast - this may be a good thing depending on what you want from the evening. The pasta was very good, but my husband was not impressed with his veal at all. The wine we ordered was okay, but nothing special. Overall a... More

Enjoyed the atmosphere and the starter bread and olives. Tried the diavolo calamari and was disappointed as it was very chewy and overcooked. The sauce was delicious but the calamari was too rubbery. I had the seafood risotto which tasted good and was a large portion but I don't know if I would have it again. My husband had the... More

We enjoyed our evening meal here. When we first arrived it was pretty quiet but it soon got busier and more atmospheric. The service was very good - when they didn't have the bottle of wine that I'd ordered, they volunteered a more expensive alternative at the same price as my original choice which was a nice touch. The food... More

They offer a small room in the back for 10-12 people far away from the restaurant noise. We were able to have a successful meeting. The food was average and the service was good. We were not interrupted many times, however, we also had to wait a fair bit to have our water refilled. I enjoyed my chicken Marsala, but... More

My sweetie and I went for our anniversary and were treated like royalty. We got a very intimate romantic quiet corner booth, were waited on diligently, and the food was incredible. He had the Chicken Noci (chicken breast stuffed with walnuts and mozzarella cheese in a mushroom butter and lemon sauce, served with vegetables) and I had the Tortellini Gorgonzola... More

My husband and I recently visited on a family vacation in the city. We were looking for someplace that was close to our hotel, but that was a proper sit-down restaurant. It appeared from the other reviews that this location might fit the bill. My husband had a nice salad to start, which he quite enjoyed and had veal for... More

Tosca's new upscale, more modern location isin a new high rise in downtown Ottawa, at 144 O’Connor. The dinner menu is very extensive Italian fare. You should be able to find something you like no matter what your tastes. It is way better than the now defunct branch in Findlay Creek Village. Very classy and no loud music, just gentle... More

Nice italian restaurant with a convenient location in downtown Ottawa which means it was quite busy on a Friday night. The service was prompt and courteous, the food however received mixed reviews at our table. The appetizers were quite good (soup for her, salad for me) and I thoroughly enjoyed my Veal Gamberetti pairwd with a quite good fettuccine alfredo... More

not sure what happened, for the last few times the food just was not that good; but they still have a very nice wine selection and good location for downtown

Nice atmosphere, dim lighting with modern decor. Food came out piping hot. First served bread and olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Large wine selection. Salmon was very good and the chicken parmigiana was average. For dessert we shared a slice of cheesecake (asked for fresh fruit on top but they did not have) so brought it with chocolate and caramel... More
