Awesome interior with stained glass, wrought iron, dark wood. Has a few hallways and nooks and crannies, somewhat mideval theme. Front patio with awning. Separate room called the Abbey had some rare and interesting stuff, Cantillon, Rogue, St Bernadous and a few others. Pretty good service, staff seemed to have a bit of a clue. Most beers were in stock and served in the proper glassware. Attached store had a nice selection of glassware and t-shirts, tap handles and signs.

Definitely the largest tap list on the Ottawa side of the river and also the largest bottle list. For anyone who is well versed on the Ontario beer scene, there isnít much that is interesting here. Everything they have in bottle is mostly typical LCBO fare with few private imports. Their tap list is a little more interesting but they tend to stick with the ordinary favourites found anywhere. They donít seem to have many local beers on tap compared with Black Tomato or Arrow and Loon. Cool vibe and good service though.

Both in quantity and quality this stands out among the best places for craft beer in Ottawa, although thatís not saying a whole lot. Usually has an interesting special or cask on. I personally didnít like the food, but Iíd go back for drinks over most places in Ottawa.

Beer bible is awesome. Could do without some of the mainstream beers that you can get anywhere. Great selection of Belgian Trappist beers. Equally good selection of Canadian craft. I would highly recommend it to beer enthusiasts.

Nice enough tap list for Ottawa, lots of bottles, but nothing someone scouring the LCBO couldnít get, and very overpriced. Food has been hit and miss.

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. Doesnít 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 Ottawaís Little Italy district (bus #85 from downtown). Has a unique quirky atmosphere. Large selection of European beers, fewer local brews.
