Where do I start...we were visiting Montreal last weekend and decided after having a horrible dinner on Friday at a place "highly" recommended by our hotel to find our own restaurant as recommended by reviews etc. The meal we enjoyed that evening turned out to be one of the best we have ever had. There were 5 in our party, all well traveled and serious foodies....this is the first review I have been impressed enough to write. The whole experience was top notch from the minute we walked in. The patio was basically closed for the season but as soon as we expressed that we would rather sit outside within 5 minutes we had a heater set up and the best table our dinner. We tried 3-4 appetizers and they were all outstanding. The wine selection was extensive and our server was very attentive to our glass all eve. Every single one of us LOVED our entree's. The veal dishes were amazing as were the pasta prepared numerous way's, all excellent. we were too full for dessert so we ordered one and it was a perfection as well. A nice touch are the little cookies given at the end of our dinner. We were all in agreement that it was outstanding and we were still raving the next day. In addition to the meal we were also fortunate enough to have the best service we have ever had for a dinner. Our table had Karl take care of us and we have never been so impressed. I think we were his only table because he was perfection and there the entire meal. I can't say enough about Karl as well. The owner Pietro also added to the experience by making sure numerous times that we were enjoying ourselves and that everything was good. He is a very classy gentleman who obviously take great pride in his business. We can't wait to return to this restaurant and it will certainly be a must-go on any Montreal trip.

My company held a retirement dinner here for me in early September. The meal and the wine selection was very good. The service was excellent and we had an outstanding time.

I'd definitely go back as a group or with just my wife.

Thanks for a great evening.

Expensive food but very good quality. Canada is expensive especially when you add the taxes and tips. Great location as it was just across from our hotel.

The waiter was very attentive and service was good.

Nice clean restaurant and everything was neat and tidy.

As the Chef at our usual Italian restaurant one block over from the hotel we stay in 3-times per year on our visits to Montreal retired, we decided to try Campari Centro as it is located across the street from the Hotel. We were not disappointed. The pasta was fresh and homemade and the sauces very tasty. The Manicotti melted in your mouth and the Veal Pizzaiola was super tender with the Pizzaiola perfect. The décor is warm and inviting and the service was prompt, attentive and polite with well informed waiters.The only negative about Centro was the wine list. Very few of the Italian wines we drink (Chiantis, Valpolicellas, Orievettos etc) appeared on the wine menu and most of the wines that were on the list were unknown to us and too expensive for our budget. We had to settle for a Pinot Grigio where we would normally have ordered a red. All in all, we recommend this restaurant.

We had a very nice evening at Campari Centro in Montreal. It was right across from our hotel, so very convenient. The food was delicious and the atmosphere was great. We visited Italy a couple of years ago, so enjoyed the slide show that played during dinner and reminisced about our trip. The server was attentive. The food was expensive, but delicious.
