Pizza is an unpretentious classic that is the favourite of restaurants in Ottawa
Planning a successful date night isn’t about creating an intricate, over-the-top affair with an elaborate, gastronomical 12-course feast for two. It’s about finding time to be together, enjoy each other’s company and have fun, plain and simple. That being said, planning a date night can be a little tricky. Especially when it comes down to the age-old question of “what do you want to eat?’’. Well, I’m here to let you in a not so well kept secret: restaurants in Ottawa serve up the ultimate date night food. Pizza! And here are a few reasons why you should head out to the pizzeria right now.
Your date is a picky eater: pizzerias offer perfectly customizable pies
Everything from eggplants to porcini mushrooms, grilled chicken to spicy Italian sausage, pizzas are the perfect backdrop for every type of topping! Whether you choose a classic Margherita pizza dressed in sweet marinara sauce and fresh basil, or you want to try your first-ever pizza Pescatore with shrimp and mussels, your taste buds surely won’t be disappointed. Also, pizzerias who offer hand-rolled and freshly made pizza dough are not only fabulous, they should be applauded for making this already perfect food even tastier.
You have table manner jitters: pizza is unpretentious
So, we all know that pizza is fantastic in its unpretentiousness, and we know that it is delicious. That being said, pizza reaches another height of perfection when you think that it can be enjoyed in any Ottawa restaurant with utensils or with no utensils at all. Whether you are a knife and fork type of diner (your mom would be so proud) or you prefer the classic grab-and-fold dining experience, pizzerias are magical places where you can eat your slice however you choose to.
It can be found virtually everywhere! Enough said.
Ottawa isn’t lacking in fabulous restaurants for you and your date to enjoy a night out and a slice (or three) of the perfect pizza. The odds are that if you choose to venture out to one Ottawa’s restaurants and – because summer is finally upon us – an outdoor patio, you will find pizza. Whether you’re enjoying some late afternoon people watching or taking in the history of ByWard Market’s cobblestoned courtyards, the opportunities to sit back, relax and indulge in some homemade pizza are out there.
Whether you’re brand new to the dating scene or want to head out for the weekly kid-free date night and want to indulge in some casually relaxed fare – indulge in some delicious old school food: pizza is where it’s at! Lucky for you, Ottawa pizzerias have honed their skills when it comes to this classic favourite and will gladly serve it up the way mamma used to make!
