Unlike Chinatown, this is worth the visit. Preston Street has a ton of restaurants that are top notch. Very close to Dow's lake, ideal spot to go for food after going to the canal or the tulip's festival. Note parking can be a pain.

Experience Italy - this street, located in Ottawa's Little Italy district, features restaurants and stores with an Italian flavour. An exciting place to visit - friendly, well designed for both casual and more formal dining encompassing some of Ottawa's best restaurants.

Full of great restaurants with a refurbished main street, it's the heart of Little Italy in Ottawa, Canada's capitol city. Especially lively on warm summer evenings where patios are full of locals and visitors alike.
