“Italian in the Montreal, but not the best”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013 via mobile

The restaurant has a good atmosphere with nice staff who treat you almost well but not perfect, we choose salmon and veal which were good , specially salmon which was dish of the night , but veal was just ok and considering price it was a bit under ok.i think other Italian dishes should be better and I would recommend this restaurant not as your first choice in Montreal

“Top notch experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

Received a recommendation from a trusted business associate that Il Campari was the best Italian dining experience in Montreal. As almost all reviews attest, we found this claim to be very accurate. Equally significant was the service from the moment we set foot in the door. Each individual that served us was not only professional but unobtrusively warm and friendly. They displayed none of that condescension that often accompanies the fine dining experience. Our main server, Ahmed, combined wonderfully a refined knowledge with a comfortably friendly, relaxed and inviting approach. At the end of a wonderful dinner and evening with my wife, the owner of 37 years greeted us, thanked us for coming and spent a few moments just chatting. And all the while quite aware that we were just regular everyday people, not members of the Habs or prominent Hollywood and entertainment industry patrons that regularly frequent Il Campari. Definitely a place that we will return to on our next visit to Montreal.

“Authentic Italian”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

Great place with inviting ambiance and friendly service. The food was authentic and with well balances flavours. Loved the spaghetti agio e olio and throughly enjoyed the cod main dish. Well priced menu for the quality and location. I would recommend for anyone: business, couples, families.

“very good experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

This was our first visit. The service was quick and efficient. We both chose from the table d'hote. Mixed green salad with beets carrots tomato and cucumber was very good. Potato leek soup was very tasty. Our main courses of chicken with an artichoke sauce and pasta was delicious. My husbands veal marsala was very good as well. For dessert we both had the taramisu. One of the best we have had anywhere. Portions I found to be a bit small. But the quality was excellent. We will be back soon. Very enjoyable evening with wonderful friendly staff. Free parking a big plus in this busy area of downtown

I have to agree, the food is great! I've been going for years and I am never disappointed. I love sitting on the tiny terrace in the summer best.
