After making a horrible error in judgment waiting to make reservations until the very last minute on New Years Eve, my boyfriend and I ended up calling around the city for over an hour for reservations. Nobody was courteous or helpful throughout Montreal until we spoke to the people at Ristorante Bis. They offered us a reservation, though later than... More

We decided to go to Bis without a reservation tonight 12/27/14 and they were very accommodating. They seated us a little close to the door and Marcello ( one of the partners) immediately moved us to a beautiful corner table. We shared burrata with prosciutto antipasto, it was delicious. I order cavatelli with broccoli and fennel sausage while my husband... More

Our 7th Anniversary, my wife insisted we go to an authentic Italian restaurant and we got what she asked for. Impeccable caring service - was this because my wife chatted in Italian with the maitre d'? We both got a roman style saltinbocca, nearly perfect after a fried calamari starter. Definitely one of the best in Montreal for couples or... More

I went with a colleague because the restaurant was recommended to us by the concierge. It was not full but the ambiance was okay. We took an Italian style starter of 4 small dishes which was good but certainly not special. The mozzarella was medium quality, sorry As main course I took a linguine with shrimps, this was a mistake.... More

Went to this restaurant with 8 clients and had a wonderful evening. The appetizer prepared for us was tasty- too bad we were not given the option to choose it- the mains were also very good. Overall it was a great experience.

My team and I were in Montreal this past weekend for a hockey tournament. We called Bis on Saturday for a party of 15 that night. Was surprised they could accommodate, gave us a great table in the back and showered service on us all night. Now mind you, there were a lot of Italians in this crew including me... More

On a cold November evening, I was looking for a nice meal in a cozy setting. Ristorante Bis proved to be the perfect place to relax and enjoy an excellent meal. From the entrance, I was greeted warmly, and with care. The service was attentive and courteous, with a touch of humor, so never stiff. The food was quintessentially italian,... More

We had an excellent dinner at Ristorante Bis in downtown Montreal!!! One of the finest Italian restaurant in Montreal. The Buratta and papardella with white truffles were both excellent and the wine suggestion from our host (the Patu) was also excellent. For a memorable evening at a fine Italian restaurant don't look no further just book there.
