Last minute decision to eat here, and fairly late in the evening, but we were accommodated well, and service was satisfactory. We ordered Italian food from quite a comprehensive menu and were very satisfied with it. Certainly it ticked the box - value for money....More

Probably one of the finest small restaurants in Montreal and reasonably priced as a bonus. Try the Linguini Vongole.

Very accommodating for our large group with a short time on the schedule. The waiter was fantastic. The food was very good. The courtyard was flowery and beautiful. Would definitely go back!

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
