I wanted to try in "In House" cannelloni but replace the two meat filled pastas with the vegetarian cheese and spinach. The man working said he couldn't make two with no meat because they're pre packaged. What? On the menu it clearly states it's made in house, so what are you doing selling pre packaged pasta? If it is made... More

Service was slow, food was mediocre, salad dressings way to vinagerry ( is that a word)? Tomato sauce way too acidic.

My wife and I stopped in to this restaurant on our recent visit to Ottawa. The food was excellent right from the salad and great warm buns to the fantastic entre's and desert. We have had great dining experiences before however Cynthia our waitress made it that much more of a night to remember. To the chef thanks for such... More

Dropped in for the $15 dollar lunch special. Had a soup starter and chicken parmesan. Soup, ministroni was flavourful with firm el dente veg and noodles. The parm was excellent and very satisfying. Overall this restaurant gets a "recommended"

This is a family owned restaurant with typical Italian charm. We very much appreciated friendly owner's greeting and the chat we had with him during the service. There was a variety of different choices on the menu which my wife, myself and our guests appreciated food we ordered. Price was reasonable, mid $$ wine, tax and tips included. Overall, I... More

Our party of four went to Da Sergio's on a Sunday evening. It was our first visit. The restaurant is, to say the least, unpretentious. It is several steps below street level. When we entered there was only one table occupied. The owner/manager and a woman were watching television from a set hung at ceiling height in one corner. We... More

I have eaten here many times over the years for the simple reason that the food is always excellent. The menu changes occasionally but there is always a satisfactory choice for everyone. My personal favorite is Veal Limon. The owner is always there to greet guests and see that they are very well served. There are many repeat guests and... More

Da Sergio is the jewel among Italian restaurants in Ottawa, my wife and I going as often as busy schedules permit. The ambiance and warm reception remind me of several dining establishments I visited years ago in Rome, Florence and Milan. The two gentlemen who either own or manage the restaurant have always made us feel as if we're being... More
