We went here for my brother's birthday dinner and it was fantastic! I have walked by the restaurant so many times and finally got to go! I regret not going sooner! The restaurant itself is beautiful; old wood, stained glass, cleN and modern bathrooms, coat check and a beautiful wine collection on display. The service is old school. This is... More

We needed an early dinner in order to make it to the Centre Bell in time for face-off, and never imagined we'd be enjoying such a lovely gourmet Italian meal just steps from our destination. Management was so kind that they served us even before their official opening time, and although we were dressed (neatly) for a hockey game rather... More

Want to impress your business clients come here! I travel throughout North America and I can say this is one of the best. The food and service were outstanding with a great wine list at reasonable prices. Our group was welcomed and a visit by the owner Mr. Esposito to personally welcome the group was outstanding. He spent the time... More

We always save this restaurant for our last evening in Montreal and it is always worth the wait. The staff and the owner are very friendly and very accommodating. We always order slightly off the menu asking for more traditional Italian food and it is the best you can find in Montreal. You can tell that their Chef takes great... More

Some colleagues and I ate here on a business trip to Montreal. It was amazing! The food dishes were simply delicious, and the service impeccable! We are from Calgary, and the difference in fine cuisine is very apparent between the two cities. The warm bread was so good, and the tortellini was just amazing! Oh, and watch out when coming...

My wife and I visited Campari Centro before going to a performance at Place des Arts in Montreal. The staff was very friendly, spoke excellent English, and accommodated our request to expedite our dinner so we could make it to the show in time. The wine list: nice offerings, but very pricey. We got a 1/2 bottle of an Italian... More

This restaurant never fails to impress us with the quality of food, drinks, ambiance, and most importantly, the service. From the moment you arrive, Peter the owner, welcomes you to his domain and instantly you feel part of the family. His excellent staff (on our last visit we were served by Marcel) then takes over attending to our needs. The... More

This is one of Montreal's best Italian restaurants. Their veal scalopini with Gorgonzola sauce is out of this world. They have an outstanding wine list and most of all the service is second to none. The whole staff of waiters will go out of their way to make your dining experience an unforgettable one. The ambiance is as suitable for... More

We went with a large group for lunch and of us had the table d'hôte, which was very reasonably priced. The food was amazing and the service was excellent. The location was very classy, great for taking out the parents.

From the moment we walked in the door, we were warmly greeted by the Proprieter who obviously had a lot of pride in his restaurant. He led us to a charming table, made many recommendations along with providing great discriptions of dishes that we would not have otherwise ordered. He even assisted us in paring a wine to enhance our... More
