This restaurant is the real deal, authentic Italian food at its finest! In the heart of downtown, it's a perfect location. The restaurant has a nice classy decor; wood and stained glass, there even a coat check at the entrance. I recently went for a celebration with friends and we all loved it! Everything from entree to dessert was amazing!... More

We were recommended this restaurant through our hotel concierge (Fairmont Queen Elizabeth), and it did not disappoint. We came in for an early dinner before the Canadiens game, and everything was well done. The tables are a little bit more close than I would like, but typical of a very in demand restaurant. Would definitely go back

This is a definite must for Italian downtown Montreal. The food is delicious, the restaurant is very cozy. Staff is great. Appetizers are great portions and good to share, main courses are perfect portions. It is plenty to fill you up but not make you too full. I ordered the scallopini limone with aglio e oli pasta, it was delicious!... More

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
