Replaced wine, much appreciated

My aunt has been going here for a very long time and it shows they respect her. We had ordered a shiraz which one waiter said was very good, well it wasn't and they kindly replaced it with another choice. Food as usual was very good, the ladies had veal and I opted for pasta.

This is the best Italian authentic restaurant in Montreal . The veal chop it's to die for. The pastas made by the chef Angelo it's outstanding . If you ever go to Montreal,don't miss this place. The vine list it's great , carefully chosen by Tomasso. Love you guys, see you soon.

We've been going to Vago for several years now, sometimes for special occasions (birthdays,dinner with friends, celebrations, etc.) and other times just for a pleasant dinner in the neighborhood. I'm always pleased and impressed with the food and the service - it's unpretentious, simple and cooked just right. The big point of differentiation for me between Vago & other downtown... More

This was our second visit to Vago and we had a small party in their private room. Giovanni and his team served us a wonderful, family style meal. Absolutely the best Primi, try the Eggplant Parmigiano and the Polpetti. Veal and Lamb dishes were devoured. The food was really, really good. What more can I say! This is a small... More

It has taken me a while to find the words and write about our experience. In fairness, previous experiences at this restaurant were much better. The good is above average, but pricey. One Saturday evening we booked this restaurant before a hockey game. We had a nice dinner, then two of our party left for the game at 6:45 pm... More

Great food but don't trust them on the wine by the glass. Have them pour it for you at the table so you can see the bottle. They intentionally gave me another wine than what I asked. I knew it wasnt the expensive Italian I ordered, it was a lesser quality Californian. When I asked to see the bottle that's... More

I dined at Vago as a part of a larger group for a special event. Overall I found the food to be average at best. The many appetizers we shared were good, but the main course (veal) was extremely thin, almost like a small cardstock, and covered in a soup of cream. I actually had to keep pushing the sauce...

Always a good meal. This time Italian Jambalaya a wonderful taste adventure. Martini perfectly made. Wait staff almost too attentive. Fast service and courses brought too quickly. Ask them to slow down! Wine a bit pricey. Cook is a good Italian chef and does a few experiments as mentioned above. Give them a try.

Staying in Centre-Ville (Downtown)

Neighborhood Profile
Centre-Ville (Downtown)
Montreal's towering skyline is concentrated in the Downtown area, its nexus of commerce and commercialism. A suffusion of luxury hotels, flagship stores, high-end restaurants, and corporate headquarters characterize the neighborhood, which by nightfall transforms from a business district into a youth-culture hotspot, with hip bars, clubs, and restaurants heavily peopled by students and young professionals. The once-seat of millionaire's 'Golden Square Mile', an incongruity of stately mansions and dapper brownstones sit between glass skyscrapers, creating a visually lush urban landscape. Beneath the sidewalks lay the Underground City, the world's largest below-ground mall, a labyrinth of over 1,500 shops and eateries that echo the profusion of cafes, gallerias, cinemas, and fashion outlets above. From the scholarly array at McGill University to the carousing crowds of Rue Crescent, visit Downtown to shop by day for what you'll wear there by night.
