Had escargots, 2 pizza and the penne Norcina. Very average food. Nothing too good here. Super average and not really worth the money. Avoid if possible. Very much a tourist trap

The portions were large and filling. The Quality of their food was the best in Montreal! I loved the cheesed they used on my pizza because it was very heavy. Overall I rate them as excellent as their service and food.
