We've eaten here twice in the last 6 weeks. This is an excellent upscale Italian restaurant near the Jean Talon Market, not cheap but very definitely worth the price. Being vegetarian, we had real limited options on the daily menu the first time we went, and the waiter suggested that the cook could make vegetarian risotto (without meat stock) or various pasta dishes that were not listed for us. I had wild mushroom risotto - by far the best I've ever had in Montreal or elsewhere - truly exceptional - and my wife and daughter opted for two different sorts of pasta; they were equally enthralled. We took a French friend with us the second time, and she wants to take other friends from France there, saying that it is the best restaurant she has tried in Montreal in the past 8 months. Desserts were also good, but not as memorable as the main dishes. Good wine too, that isn't too overpriced for Montreal (a 2 - 2.5 times mark-up). Bottom line: make reservations and try this place out.
