I have been going to this small gem for many years. Recently I have notice a drastic change.everything appears to be a routine from start to finish. Explanation of the menu is a effort. It hasn't changed in years . Service extremely slow and without interest. Recently had the former signature seafood pasta. Dry and uncooked. I have noticed a... More

Food was really good we had a shrimp/peach appetizer to start. Wife had tagliatelle with filet Mignon and mushrooms in a wine sauce and I had filet Mignon (bison) cutting with a fork. Creme brûlée for desert. Food was piping hot! Great service!

Not your ordinary red sauce joint, these are special dishes created by a great chef and supported by the locals, with many speaking only Italian. Great fresh fish and pasta dishes, and go for the fig appetizer. (But yes, save room for dessert...the tiramisu was fabulous.)

Lucca at 1 time was in that elite category of a restaurant that was consistently at the top of its game. Was there a few weeks ago and was just not blown away at lunch. The food was good but on that street there are plenty of options. I just found that it did not have that same passion and... More

We visit Lucca every so often and especially when we want to be sure the meal will be memorable. Imaginative chef, laid back and attentive staff and always new and fresh ideas on the board served with flair. Don't like the board (you'd have to be very fussy), ask and they will be happy to make whatever pleases you. One... More

The ambiance, the food, the service, the wines and the love. This place cannot be beaten. The best Italian restaurant in little Italy. The flavours are unreal. The food is outrageous. The quality is outstanding. And for the people who can say something bad about this restaurant shouldn't eat out nor judge a place due to a lack of tranquility... More

Staying in Rosemont-La Petite-Patrie

Neighborhood Profile
Rosemont-La Petite-Patrie
Rosemont-La Petite-Patrie has one of Canada's most prominent Italian communities, with Little Italy concentrated along the convivial bends of Saint-Lawrence Boulevard. Known for its fantastic bars and authentic Italian fare, the domain includes the Jean-Talon Market, the largest public market in North America. Open year-round, sunny months see fruit and vegetable stalls set up outside the main chalet, while blustery weather draws crowds indoors to meat and cheese sellers, spices and truffles stalls, and for regional delicacies such as rare Charlevoix lamb. While the market dictates what's fresh for local restaurateurs, visitors can please more than their palates, taking in the Renaissance architecture and frescos of Madonna della Difesa, the picturesque Rue Saint-Rominique with its cheerful homes and splendid gardens, or the ornamented thoroughfare of Plaza Saint-Hubert.
