About Us

North & Navy is a northern Italian kitchen inspired by the bacari of Venice. On practically every calle, salizada and ruga in Venice, you'll find a Bacaro – a casual place to grab a glass of wine or Prosecco and a bite to eat, known as “cichèti.” Bacari are Italy's answer to the pub, and cichèti are the Italian answer to Spanish tapas. Italians have an answer for everything. Our Bacaro upholds the Italian tradition of togetherness. It's the perfect place to meet friends after work, or to share a casual glass of sparkling wine and a small bite to eat.

This is my honest & unbiased review, I really love food & want to give honest feedback about my experiences! This place is super cozy & has a very warm romantic aesthetic, perfect for a date night! The server was very friendly & accommodating. I was a bit underwhelmed by the food for the cost. I have been to other fine dining establishments in the city & you get way more for the cost. My partner & I had four dishes as recommended & were still hungry so we got a bite to eat elsewhere on our way home which is not what anyone wants to do after going out for lavish dinner. We loved the starters (meatballs & carne crudo) but the pasta was a bit plain & even for one person it was such a small portion. We kept being offered bread for the leftover sauces but I would have rather had more of the pasta, not bread to mop up the leftover sauce. We also got the scallops which I thought were overcooked & had a weird flavour pairing with dill & fennel. The presentation was very nice but the taste did not live up to expectations when looking at the food. I also found the menu a bit pretentious, I wouldn't not go to a restaurant if I can easily read the menu so not sure what the goal is when you need to google what certain things are. Last, I had the tiramisu for dessert & thought it was good but nothing I haven't had before.View more

Absolutely love this cozy, gorgeous restaurant. My partner & I try to visit N & N once a year, around Valentine's Day, as an annual tradition & the experience is always second to none. Great atmosphere & hosts - they always make the experience memorable with their personalities & wine suggestions! Can't wait to go back.View more

Authentic yet creative northern Italian fare. Although one of the more expensive restaurants in the Ottawa between the locally infused food options & lovely wait staff, it's a nice place for business or a date.View more

It's one of my favorite restaurants so far in Ottawa. Great food, staff, & vibe. The only complaint I'd make is the noise levels. It's a bit hard to hear. Also, the bread crust was way too thick & hard to bite through, but that could've been an off day. I'd love to come back & sit at the bar so I can watch the kitchen work or reserve one of their private rooms.View more

All around great service & dinner ideas in this quaint old house. The lamb was brand new on the menu & did not disappoint one bit(e). Incredible options even if you're not vegetarian - give the butternut squash a try! Highly recommend this treat for yourself & you'll see why it's rated one of Canada's top 100.View more

I came in tonight for my second year anniversary. Wow what a pleasure to come to North & Navy! Stefan was the best! His pairings were spot on & same with his suggestion of an additional first course. The food was incredible, the pickled squash & stuffed pasta was mind blowing! Can't say enough about this place everything tasted so good & was unlike any Italian restaurants I've had before. Once again Stefan was an incredible host he made us feel at home & congratulated us on our anniversary while putting our coats away. We will be back again.View more
