Perfect restaurant patios for al fresco fare in Ottawa

Perfect restaurant patios for al fresco fare in Ottawa

The entranceway to this Little Italy landmark is covered by grape vines entwining a latticed roof. Under it, seven tables, dressed in white linen tablecloths and black napkins, make for elegant al fresco dining. Owner-chef Nick Shallal introduced Ottawa to the difference a wood-burning pizza oven can make and his business grew. Calzones, pastas and a handful of Italian mains are available. But gourmet pizzas remain the focus. Two winners: a seafood combination of clams, scallops, shrimp and lobster, and the Venezian, topped with mangos, Brie, braised onions and cinnamon.

The what’s what of Ottawa pizzerias

The what’s what of Ottawa pizzerias

After years in the Mediterranean, chef Nick Shallal opened this Little Italy restaurant, well known for delicious wood-burning oven pizzas and calzones. The high ceilings and brick walls decorated with bottles of fine wines and oils create a charming ambiance. The Bella – made with pesto sauce, chicken breast, brie cheese, almonds and mozzarella – as well as the fruity Ostia with papaya, pesto, kiwi and mozzarella are only two examples of the kinds of fusion pizzas that chef Nick creates, specialties that you won’t find anywhere else.
