My great-niece and I looked for a restaurant near our hotel and this one turned out to be an excellent choice. She had a pizza with escargot, onions, and Parmesan, and she loved it. It was big enough for two, and she brought the leftovers back to our hotel. I had the manicotti Florentine and it was excellent. The sauce... More

I've been to La Pizzella many times over the years as my father in law is a "regular". Every time I've been there, the food was very good. I just find that the place is starting to feel tired: the attention to detail is not the same, the service is not as attentive, even the owner looks like he's just... More

The food is excellent, from their grilled scampi and veal dishes to their pizzas and pasta. I adore the lobster and pasta dish when it is in season. Rocco, the owner and ever present at the restaurant ; is very helpful in guiding his clientele into choosing the right dish for them to enjoy. I have been a fan of... More

I normally am not a big fan of Italian food but the wife and I decided to give this place a try especially after seeing good reviews on Trip Advisor. We were very pleased with the food and the service we received. We originally went for pizza but after we ended up having some pasta, wine and dessert was delicious

Fancying a change from the local cuisine my wife and I decided a Italian was on the menu. Very attractive restaurant decor and the staff were great. Food was top class. The Penne with oyster mushrooms does not sound promising however the flavours were sensational. Up there with best pasta meals I have had and I've had a few. If... More

My daughter & I were looking for someplace to have dinner and spent a lot of time walking up and down Rue Crescent last night before deciding on sandwiches. On the way back to the hotel we discovered La Pizzella and decided to try it another night. Rebecca was very excited to see gnocchi on the menu. The atmosphere is... More

Staying in Centre-Ville (Downtown)

Neighborhood Profile
Centre-Ville (Downtown)
Montreal's towering skyline is concentrated in the Downtown area, its nexus of commerce and commercialism. A suffusion of luxury hotels, flagship stores, high-end restaurants, and corporate headquarters characterize the neighborhood, which by nightfall transforms from a business district into a youth-culture hotspot, with hip bars, clubs, and restaurants heavily peopled by students and young professionals. The once-seat of millionaire's 'Golden Square Mile', an incongruity of stately mansions and dapper brownstones sit between glass skyscrapers, creating a visually lush urban landscape. Beneath the sidewalks lay the Underground City, the world's largest below-ground mall, a labyrinth of over 1,500 shops and eateries that echo the profusion of cafes, gallerias, cinemas, and fashion outlets above. From the scholarly array at McGill University to the carousing crowds of Rue Crescent, visit Downtown to shop by day for what you'll wear there by night.
