I was here simply because they are a gluten free option for one of our guests. The room belies what is to come, its contemporary well divided and pleasing to the eye. No overcrowded areas, the noise level is fun but non intrusive as many other BYOB places.

For the rest its a BYOB chain so what can you say about the food. The appetizers were given a thumbs up by some of the guests. I had a few of the calamari which were actually better than expected having been well cooked so the batter was crispy.

I tried the pasta which a friend had rated as good at our last visit, I found the linguine overcooked which can be forgiven as I like my pasta on the hard side. The sauce cannot be forgiven, it was bland and very overcooked

Others had the lasagna which disappointed also.

I must say it has to be expected in today's environment.

The service though was good and attentive despite a full house in a raetaurant that must hold over 200 persons

Liike many chain BYOB restos expectations should be limited. Ottavio's however has a super funky decor in a vast room that is beautifully divided. Some higher end restuarants could learn a thing or two.

The menu is limited to pasta pizza and Moules. Sounds sparse but when you think about it it makes for some great advantages in th end.
Such a menu means the food is fresh especially during the Mon-Wed nights when the moules are at volonte. The pizza was OK but I must say i asked for anchivies and hot peppers and I actually tasted the anchivies.

The salad and salmon appetizers were very respectable although the bread was a little limp as if it was being stored in a plastic bag.
Coffee was actually quite good and the service was prompt discreet and timed well,Ottavio pulled this off despite it being a chain, here also some higher end places could learn a thing or two.

Should you go yuup! Can you bring a new date here yup just because the place is well put together...and get a decent bottle of wine it makes all the difference

The calamari were excellent.
Pizza delicious with perfect crust and well made.
Mussels alla marine tasty and fresh. All in all food we ordered was perfectly delicious and the waiter was friendly, and great service!!!!

The only item that we did not enjoy: desserts... Tiramisu was not an actual Italian version. Dessert menu needs improvement.

Bonne nourriture pour le groupe que nous étions.

Par contre service exécrable. Arrivée à 17h15 pour les derniers de notre groupe. Nous avons été servis bien après des gens arrivés après nous. Mais le pire c'est de ce faire dire à 19h45 qu'on doit partir. Pourtant les assiettes avaient été ramassées depuis 30 minutes et le serveur n'a pas daigné durant tout ce temps nous offrir dessert et/ou café.

Première et dernière visite.

Revised review: March 2016

We went back, remembering the gluten-free options but this time, the service was not as good as the previous time.
It took forever to get our plates and we went at 5:30pm, when the restaurant was still quiet.
We were with our young son and a 2-hour dinner was not what we had in mind for pizza!
The last straw was when we got charged extra for the gluten-free dessert. It was a raw cake from the company ''Rawsome''…..how can you charge extra for the GF version if the cake is gluten-free to begin with??
So I should've asked for the normal version to pay less for the same cake!

We tried it out, looking for gluten-free options (very limited options in Montreal) and we were pleasantly surprised. They really pay attention to every little detail, making sure nothing has been overlooked (separate utensils, G-F bread, even the soap in the washrooms!).
We had a G-F pizza and the mussels which were delicious.
A very special mention to our waiter Jeffrey who was very nice, courteous and attentive.

We'll definitely be back!

Nourriture bonne. Service médiocre, attente longue, le serveur n'est jamais venue nous voir pour s'assurer de notre satisfaction du repas, aucun remplissage d'eau, plusieurs erreurs lors du service de plats, attendre plus d'une heure pour finalement avoir la carte des desserts et café (suite à notre demande) et se faire dire à 9:20 que la cuisine est fermée pour commander notre dessert.... Et pour combler le tout le gérant qui nous répond que l'on se trouve chanceux d'être servi car le Resto est plein !!!! Et bien pour ma part, je vais l'aider en n'organisant plus de rencontres à son établissement.

C'était ma première fois chez Ottavio. En entrant, j'ai bien aimé l'ambiance du resto et on m'a bien accueillie. J'ai choisi les moules frites dans le menu et elles étaient malheureusement très mauvaises. Elles étaient pleines de sable et de petites roches. Je n'ai mangé que la moitié, et j'ai dû me forcer. Pour dessert j'ai pris une verrine de chocolat qui était bien, mais la taille était ridicule. Trois bouchées plus tard le petit contenant de plastique était vide. Enfin, j'ai été très déçue du resto. J'y allais pour l'anniversaire d'un ami coeliaque, mais personnellement je n'y retournerais pas. Beaucoup trop cher pour ce que j'ai mangé (ou pas mangé je devrais dire).

Très beau et bon restaurant. La table d'hôte du midi est amplement suffisante pour satisfaire les plus gros estomacs. Gros coup de coeur pour leur sauce rosée.. Si vous êtes aux alentours de Saint-Léonard, n'hésitez pas à manger dans ce restaurant !

This resto is amazing, from the service to the food. My GF has celiac and there not many restaurants that take precautions not only for the ingredients, but for any cross contamination. This is our go to spot for GF Pasta and Pizza. Both the regular and GF menu selections are delicious. The manager, Billy, and all the staff are courteous and always smiling and going the extra step to make your visit the best. Keep up the great work.

C'était notre 2ème fois chez Ottavio, nous y sommes retournés car nous avions trouvé les moules délicieuses en plus d'être à volonté en début de semaine.

L'ambiance et le décor sont bons dans l'ensemble, et le service très agréable.

Je recommande ce resto pour les moules sachant que je n'y ai pas essayé d'autres plats.

Ce fut ma première fois à ce restaurant et j'y retournerais sans problème. Nous avons mangé les penne romanoff et ils étaient délicieux. Il y a une belle ambiance et un beau décor. Malheureusement, le service étati pas mal ordinaire, j'ai eu meilleur service ailleurs.

Je suis allé plusieurs fois à ce resto en famille et à chaque fois, j'ai commandé une assiette de pâtes différentes. J'ai toujours été très satisfait de mon choix: sans être exceptionnel, c'est toujours aussi bon! Les assiettes sont assez grosses, mais sans non plus nous bourrer! Le service est un peu lent par contre.
Je trouve très cocasse le savon sans gluten dans la salle de bain :P

Un restaurant avec un bon service mais la bouffe est relativement ordinaire pour le prix. Une facture qui s'élève assez rapidement sans avoir prix d'alcool et pour avoir mangé normalement... Good pour les moules a volonté mais sinon...

The food was really good. We had Poulette mussels, some other mustard mussels and the special pizza. The one that changes every month. This month it was figs, pesto, mozzarella, and honey. The service was a but slow but still good. I also had a creme brûlée it was amazing!
It's just good Italian food... Nothing amazingly special.
I would go back.

Bon restaurant. Bon rapport qualité prix.

J'aime bien la formule "pâtes à votre choix" le midi: on choisi sa pâte, sa sauce et 3 accompagnements pour 9$. Les portions sont très généreuses.

Service est efficace.

À essayer.

My best friend threw me a surprise party here. 20 people. The service was good, the meal came quickly too. I ordered the oriental salade, and while it looked nice, i found it a bit bland. Prices for meals were reasonable, bring your own wine is great, and the desserts were superb. Its a generic resto you should go to when you want to have a simple lunch/ dinner with your buddies. Nothing special, nothing horrible.

Très beau décor, belle ambiance (quoi que bruyant), service impeccable, prix raisonnable (et en plus c'est un "apportez votre vin"). Cependant la nourriture un peu décevante. Mes frites étaient excellentes mais les moules avaient un mauvais dosage en épices, trop fort, ce qui camouflait la saveur des moules. Étrangement c'était l'inverse pour mon entrée de calmars frits: manque d'épices, saveur de farine! L'assiette de pâte de ma copine était correct, sans plus. Peut-être sommes nous tombé sur une mauvaise soirée? Donnons la chance au coureur...
