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

Little Italy is OK, but nothing special. There are two things worth seeing in Little Italy, which is the two markets called Marche Des Safeurs du Quebec and Marché Jean-Talon.

A great place to go north of Beaubien street on St-Laurent blvd up until Jean-Talon street. You will see some nice Italian cafe shops and some nice Italian restaurants. While you are going up, you will see side streets like Dante street, go est about one or two blocks and you will see some great Italian restaurants with Italian home... More
