There is a little Italy in almost every major city in America. This was by far the least attractive. A lot more can be done to make it more tourist friendly.

Montreal's Little Italy is unique in comparison to Ottawa (too small), Toronto (I have yet to meet an Italian ??), Boston (too commercial) and New York ( Italy or China??). You can appreciate Little Italy either by walking/ driving on Saint Laurent, from Beaubien to Jean Talon or head east on Dante, take a north bound street to Saint Zotique... More

We had a coffee at the guide book recommendation. Disappointing. However, we found a bakery on an off street, while looking for a church, and what a great surprise! The BEST cannoles since we left Itally!

This is a smaller part of town but still very quaint. Take the orange line subway north from downtown Old Montreal to get there quickly. Lots of dining options and a great safe area to walk around.

Little different from our "Little Italy/North End" in Boston. Lucky if it's 2 city blocks And, don't look for an Italian bakery or Cannoli..there aren't any.

This was city neighborhoods. Several nice restaurants but nothing fabulous. The Jean Talone market was the only thing worthwhile. Incredible vegetables and great prices. Wish we could have bought some back with us.

Should not be listed in the attractions list. Nothing really important to see. Only shops and restaurant. After all it depends of what you are expecting to see.

While the Jean-Talon market area is fast being developed for wannabee gourmets, there are still some hidden gems to be savoured. The best place to eat traditional and home-made fare is La Motta Bakery. You can both purchased food prepared and sit at their modest tables and chairs. Another good value is over on Mozart Street called the Three Maria's.... More
