OpenTable Reveals The 100 Best Italian Restaurants in Canada

In honour of National Pasta Month, OpenTable today announced the 100 Best Italian Restaurants in Canada for 2017. These awards reflect the combined opinions of more than 515,000 restaurant reviews submitted by verified OpenTable diners for more than 2,000 restaurants in Canada.

From trattorias serving classic Italian comfort food to enotecas with outstanding wine offerings, this list highlights the diversity of Italian cuisine across the country such as Villa Rosa Ristorante in Penticton, British Columbia, and Italian by Night in Saint John, New Brunswick. Including establishments with multiple locations2, Ontario has the greatest number of restaurants included with 50, followed by Alberta with 21, British Columbia with 15 and Québec with eight. Manitoba and Nova Scotia each have two restaurants recognized while New Brunswick and Saskatchewan are also represented on this list.

The 100 Best Italian Restaurants in Canada list is generated solely from more than 515,000 restaurant reviews collected from verified OpenTable diners between September 1, 2016 and August 31, 2017. All Italian, Modern Italian and Pizza (as a primary cuisine) restaurants with a minimum “overall” score and number of qualifying reviews were included for consideration. The restaurants were then sorted according to verified diner reviews.

Based on this methodology, the 100 Best Italian Restaurants in Canada according to OpenTable diners are as follows (in alphabetical order):
