Outdoor Dining in ByWard Market

Just took an evening stroll back to the ByWard market area. There's a grouping of restaurants just off of George Street that are worth visiting...each one surrounds one of the oldest courtyards in Ottawa - Social, The Black Tomato, Courtyard Restaurant and Mamma Grazzi's. We ate at Mamma Grazzi's after seeing a good review in a Frommer's Guide. Despite the cheesy Italian name, it was very good. The caprese is a good bet as an appetizer as it comes with caprese and nice-sized mixed greens salad. The menu also includes pizza, four meat dishes and 30+ different pasta options. Eating in the courtyard area is an absolute must, particularly in the summertime when the weather, like tonight, can be ideal.
