“ I am very pleased to be introducing you to Tony Irace and his new Italian Wine Bar and Dining Concept “Antipazzo.” Having someone like Tony Irace take over is a perfect fit. He is passionate about wine and was recently the Wine Director and Cellar Master for Holland America Cruise Lines. I have known Tony for a long time as previous employee at Domus Café` as well our friend along with his lovely wife Ania. He has all of my support and I hope you will stop in to check this out. I have recently been in Italy and I have seen the popularity of this style of wine and food program and I have full confidence that the new concept will be fun, accessible and top quality. It has been rewarding to of been apart of the Ottawa Restaurant scene and I am proud to call many customers, area Chef’s and suppliers my friends. I wish you all the best. From Sylvia and I we’d like to thank you for all of your support over the last 20 years. Grazie

Tony Irace will take over the popular 30 seat restaurant in the New Year after brief renovations. Tony was the previous owner of Napo Farm to Table Italian Cuisine and longtime Domus Café Server/ Sommelier. After traveling the world as wine director with Holland America Cruise lines he is ready to put roots in Ottawa and will transform the space into “Antipazzo Italian Plates and Wine.” In the kitchen Christopher St Aubin who was a previous Sous Chef at Taylor’s Genuine and is currently the sous chef at Salt Dining and Lounge, will be taking over the kitchen.
“Antipazzo is the result of a lifelong passion for food, wine and the places in which it is served with a modern Italian flair. We strive to shorten the time from farm to fork using Italian recipes and inspiration to celebrate the flavours of the season.” After spending, much of the last 6 years in various areas of Italy Tony says “I fell in love with their unpretentious approach to wine and plan to bring that spirit to Ottawa with vino sfuso, (Italian for loose wine) which in Italy is wine that comes un-bottled from the local vineyard., At Antipazzo we have selected some local wines that can be enjoyed with exceptional value.” For more information please check website: antipazzo.com or contact Tony Irace: tony@antipazzo.com .
