“Hidden Gem near Old town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2010

We have been to La Diva twice, both times the food was excellent quality and value, there is a 3-course table d'hote with lots of choices for $19 - $25. We love the bruschetta (free when you sit down), fusilli norcina, and pesto linguine. This is one place we will keep coming back to for the great food, service, and value. Wines are good and very moderately priced. The only downside is the second time we visited we were seated next to a large group of gay men who were talking very VERY explicitly and loudly about raunchy gay sex (I am not a prude but these were definitely XXX rated discussions), this is not necessary anywhere in public let alone in a restaurant with mixed company! I will still try the restaurant again due to everything else being very good, but I have only been here twice so I'm not sure if this is a common occurrence.

“Best calf liver in Town Foie de veau”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2010

La Diva as the best calf liver in Montreal. I live in Montreal and I have been to many Italian Restaurant and La Diva is one of my favorite. Nothing Fancy just good Nonna style Italian Cuisine. If you go to La diva go for the Veal or Liver you wont be disappointed. Like most Italian Restaurants in Montreal Pasta are always perfect. Be sure to Try La Creme Caramel for dessert with a Cappucino and you will be a returning customer.
