Nice, nice pub in Little Italy in Ottawa. Many sections in the bar - the terrace is really so-so though. Like the abbey. Lots of beer-related objects inside (it was really wierd to see a Mickey’s sandwiched between two Chimay bleue, however. Annoying hip-hop. Service was a bit slow, and it was sunday, but then, I asked for a "beer of the month", which might explain. 200+ beers and 30+ taps and 10+ beers of the month. Interesting, but still second to L’Autre Oeil in the region. Will try food someday. Prices are in line with Ottawa’s pubs.

Funky Abbey-like atmosphere with plenty of kitschy stuff to look at. Very compartmentalized throughout. Friendly staff. The beer selection was fairly extensive but not organized in a way beer geeks would appreciate. For example "coolers and lambics"???? Of the beers available, there were a few nice selections and a number of local crafts but the bulk of them were mass-produced stuff you can get at the LCBO.

I rarely say things like this, but, I have absolutely no idea why this place is popular on Ratebeer. When we were there, most of the taps were only mass marketed international beers (Kilkenny and friends) and some C-grade Ontario micros. Doesn’t really have a special atmosphere, either. Much preferred the Manx for that. For beer, though, gotta go to Gatineau.

Pub Italia is without a doubt the greatest Pub in the city of Ottawa. A selection of specialty beers that absolutely cannot be beaten. Good food, but a little pricy. Better than the average bar food though.

Excellent pub and restaurant in Ottawa’s Little Italy district (bus #85 from downtown). Has a unique quirky atmosphere. Large selection of European beers, fewer local brews.

Cozy place, nice chill atmosphere.
Lots of beers to choose from.
A bit pricey.

Can be busy and sometimes the hours may thow you off a bit. Typical pub atmosphere. Fairly good service. Food can be hit or miss but one of the better selections in Ottawa. Micros and Imports. Prices are about what you would expect. One of the few Ottawa places you may be able to enjoy Westy 12. Parking can be a chore. Even if you come when this place is packed or clsed there is some good Italian eats on Preston.

Don’t ask the waitress’s any advice they really don’t have a clue. Everytime its their first day., The best beer selection in Otttawa. Little expensive but I’ll never get board of this place. Food is cheap and really tasty.

The styling and feel of this pub is definitely one of the more interesting and enjoyable that I’ve seen. It has quite a mix of your standard "pub" stylings with Italian and Abby influences throughout.
I came for the beer. They had Westy 12 @ $40 a bottle and the 8 and 6 for $30. The bottle list was pretty extensive and lots of quality beers on tap.
I went to the little Abby corner tucked away by the bathrooms to see what was in the cooler and not on the menu. These bottles appear to be priced quite high. Dominus Vobiscum Lupulus was $40. Buyer beware at those prices.
In summary, loved the place and I will remember it as the site of my first Westy 12.

Probably the best place in Ottawa proper for beer. 30+ taps that combine local, Canadian and US and other (mostly Belgian and Britain). Bottle list is fairly extensive - the owner has good connections with distributers out of Toronto and gets good stuff as long as he thinkg it will more (e.g. Westy, burlywine) but doesn’t seem to have an appetitite for the more exotic stuff like Cantillon, Mikkeller etc - with a very good selection of Belgians and other tasty treats (make sure to walk into the abbey and look in the "special fridge" to see what they have thats not on the menu. Atmoshphere is great, combines a pub and a church, although it can get quite noisy when crowded - patio is nice. Food has gone down hill quite a lot over the past couple of years - probably better to eat elsewhere on the street since you are in the heart of Little Italy. Service can be hit and miss depending on how you get. All that being said if you don’t want to cross into Quebec, or you just want some good beer, this is the place to go in Ottawa.

Great selection of beers. Rivals anywhere I’ve ever been. Prices are high but everywhere in Canada is.
