This was the first restaurant my husband and I visited upon our arrival. At first we were nervous because we noticed many people in the outside seating area didn't have food. However we were blown away by the sevice. The waitress quickly noticed we were struggling a bit with the French menu and offered an English one (I declined, and managed to put my high school french to good use). I ordered the spinarto and my husband got the Margherita with hot Italian sausage. Both personal sized pizzas arrived in less than 15 minutes. They had a nice sweet thin crust and subtle sauce. The toppings really stood out in terms of flavour. It tasted very fresh. The waitress noticed me taking pictures of the food and my husband and immediately offered to take a picture of both of us. She was very prompt with refilling our waters and bringing us the check. It was a very good experience for our first time in Montreal.
