From our experience, this is the most consistent restaurant in Ottawa.

Pizza is world class with light fluffy crust and nicely prepared toppings (I love the grilled zucchini), and most of the pastas have been good as well.

MY wife always enjoys the mussels and spinach/artichoke dip.

My friend and I were shopping in the Market on a Sunday afternoon and stopped in for a bite. What a cozy establishment.

We ordered a bottle of red wine, fromaggio pizza and the Mediterranean Salad which were all quite good.

The Salad did have a little too much dressing at first, however the server quickly corrected the situation and sent it to the kitchen. I am not sure if they made new ones or just added more salad, but in the end it was much better.

I think from now on, I will order my dressing on the side no matter what restaurant it is as some overdo it, and some place are a little scarce with it, which is actually my preference.

Total bill was ~$70

Went to Vittoria Trattoria in the Market with my fiance for lunch... and will NEVER return.
The service was awful, we were seated at a table after requesting a booth, the hostess seemed to ignore our request.

Waited 10 minutes for someone to take our order and had to ask for water.

I had the chicken Caesar salad meal. The lettuce cane wilted, over dressed and the chicken was doused in garlic. I like garlic but this was terrible. I had 3 bites and left it. My fiance has the CACCIATORE pizza, looked good, came on flat bread crust,cheese, chicken and tomatoes- looked great--WRONG! It tasted horrible. The pizza sauce tasted like it was from a discount store canned crap! The chicken was cold and the tomatoes were mushy and made the pizza soggy. HOW DISAPPOINTING!! on top the server did not check on us once! we will never return.. a waste of $50 bucks!!

Too bad about the Caprese. It actually looks good; tomato, cheese (is it real Buffalo?) and fresh basil. Nothing more.

If what Snoopyloopy said is true about the balsamic, using a 5 yr old balsamic would be better suited for the salad than a true 12 year or a doctored up 5 year. Strange.

My beef with this place is that the waiter lied to my face about the age of the balsamic vinegar used on the caprese salad. Here is my conversation with him.

Me - "Hi, I'm trying to choose between the caprese salad and the X salad, and pretty much my choice has been narrowed down to how old the balsamic on the salad is. It says aged, how old is aged".

Him - "Aged is 12 years old"

Me - "Really? You use a 12 year old balsamic on this salad? I think it might be a bit too sweet."

Him - "Well, we actually reduce a 5 year old with sugar and vanilla to make it taste like a 12 year old".

Me - "You reduce a 5 year old? That's a total waste of good vinegar"

Him - "Well, actually I don't know how old it is, but I know we reduce it with sugar and vanilla. Most often people come in here and talk about food without knowing what they are saying. You clearly do. Sorry".

Me - "In that case I don't want the caprese."

Editor's note: I know the suppliers. I was hoping that the balsamic they get in big plastic jugs was used to sauces or something, not salads.

Just thought I'd share some of the pictures I took of our dinner there on Sunday night. :)

The Sophia pizza ($19) garlic oil, mozzarella, pancetta ham, mushrooms, red onion and asiago cheese was flavourful and nicely cooked. This time we were given chili oil, which really helped the drier bits of crust. Good experience overall!

From the main dining area you can see a thick row of glowing embers in the pizza oven, making it difficult to consider ordering anything other than pizza. The prices of pies are mostly around $20, with the scantily topped Margherita Pizza ($16) being the low end outlier. These may be the most expensive restaurant pizze in Ottawa.

Mine was a solidly made pie with a well charred bottom. The sauce was somewhat more acidic than I like and the crust was a little too dry, especially at the rim. Some chili oil for dipping would have helped it greatly!

I'd have a hard time ranking the top ten Italian style pizza joints in town but I'm pretty sure this would be on that list.

I went to Vittoria for brunch with my girlfriend last weekend. I had "Siena" Brunch: Bacon and Fontina cheese omelet served with seasoned potatoes and nine grain toast. My girlfriend had "Francesca" Brunch: Poached eggs, smoked salmon, mascarpone cheese and dill sauce served on grilled toast with seasoned potatoes. Everything was tasty and fresh. My seasoned potatoes were excellent. Good service. Impressive wine list. It's cosy!
