At first I was reluctant to rate this place. It is too nice to spoil with a mob scene. The food is delicious, the service is fantastic and in my opinion the best lasagna in Ottawa. Reservations are a must as it is small and off the beaten track.

They always have a few specials of the day, that are worth the try. The restaurant is small, and could be deceiving from the exterior, but it does have... More

Our monthly get-together for lunch brought us to this little out of the way restaurant. The lunch special was rigatoni with either tomato sauce or meat sauce and served with a salad. We started the meal with the fried zucchini sticks which were quite excellent. They were thin, really crispy and not greasy at all. Three of the people at... More

We're regular customers of Pizarro's and we haven't been disappointed. It's walking distance from our place as we live on the Rideau River off Rideau St. so not only is it convenient but the pasta is excellent. The only negative thing about it is it can be noisy as it's a small restaurant. However, it hasn't stopped us from going... More

It's not a fancy place but the food was good and prices were okay. Zucchini was nice and thin and crisp!! The entire table enjoyed it. The house wine is not great, you are better off with ordering a bottle of something else.

I adore this restaurant. Lovely for special occasions or a romantic dinner for two. The patio is a lovely green room with the grape vines growing on the surrounding fence. This family restaurant has beautiful home made pasta, delicious veal, professional servers. I'm never disappointed when I come here; it's my special little place and I'm grateful I found it....

We have been to Pizarro's many times--and are never disappointed. The service is friendly and efficient, the food perfectly prepared. My favourite is the veal cutlet with salad or pasta. We are lucky to have this restaurant in our neighborhood.
