This was our third visit and each time the food has been excellent. Interesting choices, beautifully presented and perfect sizes for sharing. Service is also excellent - the server overheard us wishing our friend happy birthday and when the birthday girl's dessert arrived, there was a Happy Birthday written out in chocolate on her plate! A small gesture that was a delightful surprise for us.

Ms. Google Map didn't prepare me for the job it took to find this place, but it's across from the theatre, adjacent to Central Brewery in the Kanata Centrum Shopping Centre. There aren't a lot of great restaurants in Ottawa's west end, but this is one of them. It's not cheap, but the fare is creative, palate-pleasing and delicious! This is one of those shared plates places, but they will do separate dinners as well. The menu varies with what is fresh and locally available, and ever bit of it from appetizers to dessert was a treat. The title doesn't lie: it's small; so make a reservation!

The menu is adventurous and varied. The chef prepares fresh dishes meticulously. Try the warm olives , then have the porchetta, but leave room for dessert. We like the lack of noise and warm atmosphere.

The menu here is very varied so now we simply ask the server to bring us a great selection of plates and she has never failed to impress.

My wife and I frequent Aperitivo as often as we can (which isn't as often as we should!). Every visit is always a top notch experience. The menu choices change from time to time and always generate great conversation and debate between us about what we should choose. Sean and his staff provide amazing recommendations and insight. The fish tacos are always our favorite! I strongly recommend reservations. The location is ideal for both a light meal and drinks before/after a movie or as an in and of itself. A visit to Aperitivo is always a unique, flavorful, and enjoyable experience each time...strongly recommended!
