Owner description: The "Little Italy" section of Ottawa including a nice selection of restaurants.
Reviewed February 19, 2012

Known as Little Italy, Preston Street has recently undergone a major renovation that has broadened sidewalks, improved lighting and signage and generally made it a more welcoming place. Lined with many good Italian and other (but mostly Italian) restaurants, this is a better place to visit in the summer than winter. It s also home of Preston Hardware, one of the best independent hardware stores in Ottawa.

We love to go to Preston Street. From the old Prescott hotel with its storied past to laughing it up at Absolute comedy to dining in the quirky Pub Italia with its Beer Bible, Preston is the place to park the car and start strolling. You'll find something you love!

The best of Ottawa's Italian restaurants are to be found on Preston Street. A wonderful place to be during local and Italian festivals. ts proximity to Dow's Lake make it a great year round destination.

If you're looking to do an espresso tour in Ottawa, don't miss little Italy. My favourite is the morning owl (on Rochester street) but they are only open till 3 pm and are closed on weekends. Still worth the visit. If you are looking to buy a machine, preston hardware is the place to go.
