Wonderful experience...exceeded expectations.

It's always difficult to find a restaurant to satisfy 3 pre-teen and teenage boys, but this hit the mark! Don't be afraid to ask for "off menu" items. Lasagna and spaghetti bolognese aren't listed, but are available if asked. The gnocchi was especially delicious. The service was outstanding.

Probably the best Italian meal we have ever had, and excellent service. Starting with the soup de jour through the main course and desert, the food was incredibly fresh. Portion sizes were perfect and well presented. Our waiter, Karl, was charming and offered excellent suggestions.

Owner Pietro Esposito and his Campari Centro more than lived up to the great reviews here on Trip Advisor. Pietro met us at the door and seated us on their great outdoor terrace. Our server Ahmed was just awesome during the entire evening. He made recommendations that were spot on from the wine to our entrees. Most of the time... More

Across from the Novotel on Rue de la Montagne is a wonderful Italian restaurant run by Pietro Esposito, a native of the Calabria region of Italy. The service was perfect, the waiter very personable, the food was wonderful, and the owner was charming. In spite of being a Scorpio!. Best meal we had while in town for the Formula 1... More

We were visiting Montreal and stayed in Sheraton. The concierge suggested this restaurant when we asked for a good Italian restaurant. We were not disappointed. We did not have any reservation but they found us a great spot on the terrace right away. The food was great - the service was superb and the waiter was extremely courteous and friendly.... More

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).

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.
