    After having just enjoyed one of the most memorable meals in a long time, tbe wait staff was beyond fantastic, attentive without being intrusive.
    I had the osso bucco which was fall off the bone tender, and they happily swapped out the veg for risotto with porcini mushroom as the side. My companion had their cavatelli with fresh vegetable which was incredible - (which for me says a lot since I'm a carniovore at heart) how does one elevate a fairly simple pasta with veg to such high levels?
    Wine list is spectacular and we enjoyed our meal with a spectacular 1985 Frescobaldi Mormoreto. Never had the feeling of being rushed and in fact, they encouraged us to take us much time as we wanted. Finished off the evening (midnight by this time), with a round of 20 year port followed by another round that was offered to us on the house. Never have I felt so welcome and felt like I was in someone's home the ambience was so ingratiating. Highly recommend - you won't regret it!.

    During out visit, we went to two restauarants for lunch.
    Just 10 minute walk from the hotel.
    One of the best gnocchi I ever had.
    The 3 men who were with me insisted I try
    a bit of veal marsala, a bit of linguini amatriciana and the fish of the day. Equally good was the calmars fried.
    A very impressive wine list.
    Very clean. Spotless.
    The decor reminds me of a certain look I saw years ago.
    I like this kind of look.

    As Chicagoans, we are blessed with an overwhelming number of the finest Italian restaurants outside of Italy. So we assumed during our recent trip to Montreal that no restaurant there could even come close to the superb Italian cuisine we're accustomed to. Were we ever wrong! As luck would have it, we were staying at Le Crystal Hotel, directly across the street from Il Campari Centro. Although there was another Italian restaurant on the same block, we decided that Il Campari Centro looked more inviting. The moment we walked into this incredibly beautiful dining room, the proprietor Pietro warmly greeted us with a big smile, escorted us to a perfectly located table, and within five minutes of conversation had us feeling as if we had been longtime friends of his. And then there was our simply excellent waiter Franco, who epitomizes first class professional service. Our wine glasses were never empty and neither were our plates! And what terrific wine and food it was! The finest Riesling we have ever tasted. The food? Insanely delicious---the freshly baked warm bread, the amazing home made prosciutto (best ever!), outrageously delicious calamari, succulent veal, ridiculously flavorful lasagna, and let's not even talk about the fantastic desserts. Let's just say that we happily waddled back across the street to the hotel like a couple of plump Canadian geese! The outstanding cuisine we enjoyed at Il Campari Centro matched and in some instances exceeded that of the finest Italian restaurants we have been to in both Chicago and Italy. What was in a total class by itself, however, was the incomparable service rendered to us by Pietro and Franco. That is what made our dining experience perfect, and we know exactly where we will be eating Italian when we visit Montreal again.

    Excellent food, service and atmosphere! Every dish I've ever tried was delicious, and yes, the desserts are heavenly!

    Wow is all I can think of when describing this restaurant. It is located in a beautiful building with amazing detail. This place is probably the most reasonably priced Italian restaurant I've ever been too, and it was worth it. This is a perfect place to take your girl to for a romantic evening and trust me, the food and ambience will not disappoint her.

Nothing to complaint about!!! The waiter gave us a excellent service. There is italian music that gave a super nice ambiance!!!! You have to go there....

    Quel bon restaurant!

    La nourriture est excellente et le service est impeccable. J'ai été à ce restaurant à plusieurs reprises.

    De plus, le fait qu'il y a un stationnement inclus à l'arrière du restaurant est très apprécié parce qu'il est souvent difficile de trouver du stationnement dans le centre ville.

    Je recommande ce restaurant!

    ps: très bien situé pour avant ou après un événement au centre Bell puisqu'il est situé directement en face du centre Bell.

    L'Italie à Montréal!!!!!!
