It had been several years since we ate at Esmeralda- it was a favorite place of my father's so going there is a bit of a pilgrimage for me. It can be hard to relive fond memories but not much has changed at this restaurant over the years which is a good thing! It serves an extensive and traditional Italian... More

What a wonderful family run restaurant in the lower Laurentians that welcomes you with open arms. The atmosphere was warm and inviting and the staff were extremely accommodating and pleasant. The meals were lovingly prepared with attention to the presentation of each dish. The menu is varied and each dish that was sampled was delicious! All the desserts are homemade... More

Quaint restaurant, home style cooking that is excellent. The service is quick, and the staff and owners are sure to come around regularly to make sure everything is right and to your liking. The prices are reasonable, the quality and portions are very good. All in all it was a pleasant experience. Oh, and the wines are reasonably priced! Which... More

Everything we ate was good and we were a group of 10. Service was great, owners take the time to speak with clients. Would definitely drive from Montréal just to go eat there. Can't wait for summertime to go back and enjoy the terrace

I've lived in the area for almost 40 years, how come I have never visited or even heard of this restaurant before?? It reminds me in the best way of the restaurants we used to frequent many years ago, not old fashioned but classic. Wonderful Italian food, all the classic dishes you used to love, not trendy just really good.... More
