Pleasant surprise

We took a chance and arrived early without reservations on Valentine's Day. We were seated upstairs and the food and service was very good. They even took care of our vegetarian. Plan on going back.

My girlfriend and I decided to go to Il Centro for New Year's Eve. I had been a couple of times in the past and found it to be OK. We made reservations for 8:30 p.m., but when we arrived, we were greeted by "we wondered what happened to you! You missed your reservation for 6:30 p.m.". I don't know... More

After two visits to Il Centro over the past two years, during which we found food well-prepared but the service leaving much to be desired, we hesitated before trying it for a third time. This time was our lucky visit! The service was friendly and attentive, we were seated in a cozy corner next to a window with a view,... More

Another old house turned into a restaurant. Service was impeccable. Had a bottle of Barolo wine that was very reasonably priced for the quality of the wine. Fried calamari was a little greasy but good. Veal dish with angel hair past was delicious. Wife had similar dish with eggplant that was also very nice. Espresso was perfect. Seating is a... More

I live within blocks of Pointe-Claire village and had never been to Il Centro. We dined on a quiet Tuesday evening, arriving at 2030. The teeny-bopper young lady refused to seat us directly in front of the window on one side of the dining room preferring to "save it in case we have 4 guests" to which I replied -... More

We like trying different places to eat so chose this restaurant after walking past it earlier and reading the menu. It is an old white house that has been converted to a restaurant. We chose the downstairs dining room with linen tablecloths and intimidate looking table settings. There is a bistro upstairs which offers the same menu and it attracted... More

As a fan of Italian food, I decided to visit this place since it was nearby and sold my favourite dish "risotto". I chose the Osso Bucco with Risotto alla Milanese which was basically risotto with tomato based lamb shanks over it. This was amazing. the shank was properly cooked and had awesome flavour. For starters, I had the Aubergines... More

Very low quality food. Bad atmosphere Was seated upstairs at bar with TV sports on for valentines day. Commercials were better than the decor.

This restaurant is located a block or two from the Pointe Claire Yacht Club. It may be easy to drive right by as this place is in a charming old historic two storey house. It sits right on the corner and has ample parking in back. It also has a ramp for those who are in wheel chairs or who... More
