What a great find in a city filled with restaurants. The second we walked in we were greeted by the owner and brought to our table. The waiter was fun and full of suggestions...so was the owner. It is very apparent that he takes great pride in his business...and it shows in the food. It was outstanding...EVERYTHING was outstanding!!! I... More

We loved the spaghetti and meatballs - EXCELLENT! The waitstaff were pleasant and made the experience even more enjoyable. We sat outside on the patio as it was a lovely evening (weather-wise).

The menu is right out of a great Italian restaurant. Obviously the menu is a composite of different regional foods. Loved everything from the focaccia served in the bread basket to the Osso Bucco. They were kind enough to prepare a typical Italian spinach which was not on the menu - and it was great! I would like to come... More

Service and Waiter was excellent. Quiet and Romantic setting with a lot of class. Home made Italian pasta dishes were amazing. Coming from Ottawa to visit Montreal for a weekend gateway was special after visiting Campari Centro and a pleasure speaking with the restaurant owner.An authentic original Italian restaurant when visiting Montreal. Bon Appetite.

Had a wonderful St. Valentines's dinner at this sophisticated, extremely warm and friendly restaurant. Service outstanding and knowledgeable with experienced waiters who actually smile. The appetizer of salmon tartare was delicious and beautifully presented. Main course of veal with onions mushrooms and white wine sauce was tender and very tasty. Overall an excellent choice and would not hesitate to return.... More

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.
