About Two Six Ate

Welcome to



Due to the recent outbreak of COVID-19 in Ottawa our restaurant is closed for eat-in dinner service. Beginning March 18th we will be offering a take home menu available for pick up or through Uber Eats from 4pm – 10pm Wednesday to Sunday. This menu will change regularly, with updates and additions every few days.  Please check our Facebook or Instagram pages for the menu being offered. We are taking COVID-19 extremely seriously and will not be allowing anyone to enter the building (besides the two of us) to ensure that our space remains safe for preparing food. All inquiries and orders can be emailed or called in, payments processed over the phone and e-transfer. We thank you for your support during this difficult time.
-Emily & Steve

Our concept is simple: making food inspired by local, fresh, sustainable products. We offer contemporary variations on classic dishes with just about everything prepared in house. We take pride in crafting a regularly changing menu based on the principle of seasonal nose-to-tail cooking.

Located in the heart of Little Italy, we are happy to embrace the neighbourhood and culture by incorporating Italian gastronomy and spirits.

We offer a small plates menu and our full menu is available Wednesday through Sunday from 4:00 pm until 2:00 am (closed Monday and Tuesday)

Please contact us for reservations, group reservations, take-out orders, or any other inquiries.

Looking to book a party? Our upstairs dining room is available for large or private groups. Seated dinner, cocktail party, or late night celebration-
we’ve got you covered!
Call or e mail for details.
