About Us

There are many choices when it comes to Italian Restaurants, especially when considering ByWard Market Restaurants.

Our fresh house made pasta and thin-crust pizzas make us a cut above the rest. Most Italian restaurants don’t make their own pasta on site, and often use pre-made sauces. All of our fresh pasta dishes are made a la minute to ensure that our quality is the best.

ByWard Market restaurants benefit from being in the heart of the city, an easy central location for people to meet. Our location in the ByWard Market makes us a great choice for a casual dinner with friends or family, and our gorgeous patio available in the summer months is an award-winning spot to enjoy our superb Italian cuisine.

Please note – we don’t take reservations for our patio (most byward market restaurants don’t) but we promise to get you seated as soon as possible. Waiting for a table in our beautiful cobblestoned courtyard is a great way to meet up and catch up with friends.

Our three beautiful dining rooms indoors can all be reserved for private parties, and we can accommodate groups of up to 55. We also have Group Menus to ensure that your party enjoys the best that our Italian restaurant can offer.

In 2014 we celebrated our 20th Anniversary year! Our customers continue to return and support our dedication to fresh pasta and the best Italian cuisine, served with love. We hope you come to visit us soon and enjoy our Italian restaurant in the heart of the Byward Market in Ottawa.

What Makes Us One of The Best Byward Market Italian Restaurants?

Italian restaurants all have something that makes them unique. At Mamma Grazzi’s we are known for our old world Italian cuisine, featuring home-made pasta, hand-rolled thin crust pizzas, and fresh selection of grilled chicken and veal dishes. Our menu was created to provide an ‘al momento’ cooking philosophy which means that each pasta, pizza and entrée is prepared individually to order. Tucked away in a cobblestoned courtyard, our warm and charming ambience is sure to please.
