“Great Typical Piemonte Slow Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 22, 2012

The website menu attracted us to come to this restaurant. The menu was a non standard Italian menu with numerous slow food dishes from Piemonte which is my favorite Italian food.
The service was impeccable. Our server had extended knowledge of his wine list, which was impressive if ones appreciate Italain wines.
The antipasto mista were good, would have need some herbs but was very fresh.
The suckling pig was outstanding, the best I had in years, by far superior to the Pied de Cochon. The short ribs in a tomato sauce were also excellent.
The only drawback was a large table of noisy people. There is nothing the restaurant could have done about it.
We will certainly go back and try different dishes. I rate it as one of my of the best Italian restaurants in Montreal.

“Perfection!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 20, 2012

We visited this restaurant on a Thursday night without a reservation. Although we had to wait for table, the staff was incredibly warm and accommodating and made sure we were comfortable until our table was available. The food was phenomenal. We would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone, and hope to return soon. A++

Food is good but the menu is small, the chalkboard looked like it was written by kids and the atmosphere is lacking. trying too hard to be hip. The food was good. Hense the 3 stars. Only open 4 days??? Wierd

“Avoid at all cost”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2012

Dinner tonight at Hostaria was possibly my worst restaurant experience in Montreal in at least a few years (and I ago to 3 restaurants on average per week). Not only did we wait a full hour before getting our table, but the service was both amateur and slow. The food was good but did not make up for the overall disastrous experience. The owner, present the whole evening, was busy chatting with his friends at the bar instead of coming to check on us after we were finally seated....
