Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all restaurants are closed for dining-in. I will try to highlight local restaurants which are still open and offering take-out and delivery options in the meantime. Fratelli has a take-out menu in which they are doing contactless takeout through their front window. You just have to call them ahead of… Continue reading Fratelli: My Favourite Italian Restaurant in Ottawa
DreamLand Cafe: A Cute Little Restaurant in Little Italy
Note: This post was written prior to the current COVID-19 pandemic. We were able to visit this restaurant in person at that time. They are still in operations currently via take-out and UberEats, so we decided to publish this post as planned at this time to help #supportlocal. You may have noticed a cute cafe… Continue reading DreamLand Cafe: A Cute Little Restaurant in Little Italy

He thinks it’s rare to have been to two different restaurants with the same location… Continue reading For a Special Occasion

“Fly Me to the Moon” @ The Flying Banzini
Fly Me to the Moon
Update: This restaurant has permanently closed. A few of us wanted to catch up the other day and since we were all around the Westboro/Hintonburg area, I suggested that we go to The Flying Banzini. I really like the vibe of this, may-I-say, quite hipster place with a great selection of pizzas and and sandwiches.… Continue reading Fly Me to the Moon
