Great selection of beers, good food and service and cozy kitschy cool decor.
Great atmosphere, small in size and quite romantic. Menu is descriptive for all pallets and food is exceptional and very reasonably priced.
Previous experience, very nice atmosphere and good food.
It's different than the rest! Nice place.
We received very bad service in another business and we decided to leave and come here. Would absolutely recommend , this place is awesome, the staff is very friendly, the music is great and the food is fantastic.
Our first time at Allegro and impressed by the bistro atmosphere d nice decor. We ordered the Chef’s veal which was very tender but overpowered by too many peppercorns. The fried smelts and lobster ravioli were delicious. Nice extra touches with two small bruschettas as amuse-gueule, then the warm bread served in a plate of olive oil. The service was attentive and prefessional, but a few extra smiles and eye contact from the server would make it even better. Overall, we recommend it and will return.
Excellent food,,Excellent service.
Fun evening for party of 8 persons. Upbeat lively atmosphere, great service. Bistro burger and Pecan vegetarian burger were very good. Beef short rib tagliatelle very tasty too.
Great atmosphere, great food, staff very astute to your needs
As always, the food was excellent, as was the service!

The atmosphere was tense as we could see the staff was inexperienced
When we asked to speak to the manager we were told he was busy
Waited 40 minutes for our drinks
Appetizers were undercooked
Main meal (pasta) was over cooked and flavourless
Manager still unavailable to talk to us
Manager came to our table as we were paying and blamed server for our badly prepared food.
Will never eat here again
Upon talking with friends we have learned that their experiences have been similar.
We have enjoyed this restaurant in the past, what has happened to the servers that we came to know and trust before this new owner.
The food and vibe/ambiance were great. However, I have to leave a 3 star due to the lack in service. Our waitress never asked if we wanted coffee/tea/dessert after our meal. And after 30mins of waiting (after receiving the rest of our food to go) we had to ask another server for our bill. Otherwise we had a good time.
Excellent service, food is very good at a reasonable price. Good value for the money. The décor...super interesting. You got to check it out.
My nephew and his family were visiting from Vancouver. I was looking for a place to have a good meal and a family get together. We had a great time. The food was great, and the atmosphere warm and friendly allowing easy conversation. There were two vegans in the group and the staff was great, ensuring they were well looked after. We would most definitely recommend Pub Italia to anyone.
I ordered a combination plate and asked for my sauce for the chicken balls on the side because I ordered the food for lunch the next day and I didnt want soggy chicken balls.
They delivered the food with the chicken balls covered in sauce. So I called them to address the issue. They got very rude with me and refused to make the order right! So I ate the food that night because it wasnt going to be very good the next day.
As for the food quality... the egg roll was cold, the rice had way too much salt or msg, the chicken chow mein was also very salty, the $5 wonton soup had only 2 wontons!
So if you want to receive bad food at high prices then get yelled at by staff for complaining? Then this is the place to order from!
Ill never order here again!
We had Calamari, Penne Allegro, Osso Buco and Tiramisu'. All dishes were really good and respected pretty well the Italian tradition. The portions were pretty big. The price is medium-high, but that respects the quality of the dishes. Servers know well the menu and can give you good explanations on how the dishes are prepared. The atmosphere is nice and you can enjoy your meal accompained by background Italian music. Highly recommended. Buon Appetito!

Excellent service combined with delicious veal dishes resulted in a wonderful evening. I appreciated the waiter's efforts to find us a quieter spot with the large group celebrating upstairs. Well done!
Great food. Warm friendly atmosphere. Don't be in a hurry as the food is fresh and well worth the wait.
Complimentary Limoncello was definitely a plus as it was our Anniversary (this fact was unknown to the owner).
Will definitely be back!
The staff, attentive and very friendly (you will want to hug them kind of friendly); the ambiance (lighting, music, decor) perfect for upscale casual (oxymoron? Maybe, but it works) dining; and the steak frites, among the best my partner and I have ever had. And, oh, I have had steak frites.
Totally enjoyed our dinner at Pub Italia. The service was great, food was good, and the atmosphere was cozy yet intimate. We will return!
Wonderful intimate setting,great waiter and fabulous food. Definitely a nice place for a quiet Birthday celebration. Will definitely return often and recommend for friends.
Extensive beer list, unique theme and décor, good food.
I came here because I had a coupon and also I've been here and I liked it. Would recommend because of Eclectic menu and variety and atmosphere.
Attended a friends birthday here.
Friendly, personal service. Very good food and nice music. Good flavour.
Great staff, nice atmosphere, good prices. The tuna nachos were very nice but the fried calamari were so disappointing and tasted like they came from the bottom of a 20lb bag of frozen no-name brand.
Came for comedy night and after party with my partner and two friends. Comedians and music were awesome, and atmosphere was great. We decided to come Early for dinner first, but were disappointed by a very long wait for the meal, poor quality food, poor value for money and an inexperienced server who did her best but ultimately did not ensure the meals were made to order. A vegan mushroom burger came with mayo on it. It was served with McDonald's type french fries on a white bun and cost $17. Rice rolls, two small rolls for $10, had marinated peppers and onions for filling, nothing fresh. Some of the meals were cold. No one in the party felt that their meal was well-prepared or worth the value.
Great food (especially the fish and chips and burgers), great service, great specials, great atmosphere. Can't wait to check out the new location.
Excellent food and service!!!

Great experience. While the menu is a bit limited on the appetizer/starter side, the food is very good and the $5 Martini night on Saturday didn't hurt either.
Great tasting food. The tacos are flavourful and crunchy. Sushi tastes fresh and delicious. Steak is very tender but wish it had more seasoning.
Excellent everything! Service was great, Our server was friendly and helpful. She recommended a great beer. Our food was delicious! I have never been before but will be back.
Atmosphere was horrible because of construction outside and no other patrons in the restaurant. Was not particularly clean inside.
Food is too expensive compared with other Ottawa sushi restaurants. Food was prepared by an entry-level chef with little imagination or skill. Rice was stale. Will not return.
First time at Kinki. Would recommend ! Food was decent, server was fun-quirky, and the late night vibe was boss.
First visit! Mid September 2017, best weather week of the whole Ottawa summer! Had a reservation for 18:30 but they were still able to accommodate my request when making the reservation, for a patio table if weather permitting! It was! :-) Had a great waitress and her knowledge of the inside of their "Beer Bible" was very impressive (over 30 beers on tap, and many many other bottled brands) The Dragon Stout ($6.55) was excellent! We all had something different from the food menu and all 6 of us give the food a "+ 2 thumbs up", rating! Personally, I went with one of their specialities - Chicken Anderson ($24). OMG! Fantastic! Most food items under the $20 mark. You gotta eat here! :-)
I use to appreciate this restaurant.
My rating WAS 4 & plus,
Yesterday was a big disappointment !! A ZERO rating !!
Loved the place!!! It's different, the ambiance is great, the staff is courteous, what else can you ask for? The location is great too, especially when you have friends spread out throughout Ottawa (East and West end) and Quebec. I will definitely go back.
Food, service and atmosphere is always great. Thanks for another lovely evening.
