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.

What a great place to go eat. It's well located right downtown of montreal. There is a free parking in the park of the restaurant. U just have to say that u are coming to eat at il campari. The food is great. I had some osso bucco that melt in my mouth! U really have to go try that place. The wyne is private import that you wont find anywwere that there and its great. 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!!!!!!

Been there several times. Conveniently located near the Bell Centre but I prefer going there by on less hectic nights. Ask for Serge. Love the V. Chop. Love the gnocchi gorganzola. Don't love the gymm.
Oh No!I ate like a GIP again..

Very disappointing! Three of us went here as a birthday treat. No-one welcomed us, just a brusque showing to our table. The stone-faced waiter asked what we would like to drink. My teetotal friend asked for water and we were brought a bottle of mineral water, for which we were later charged $8. Two of us shared a bottle of Due Torre merlot, which cost $50 plus tax!! We ordered starters of soup of the day (Minestrone) and Salmon Tartare, main courses of Risotto Porcini, Risotto with vegetables and veal scallopine. The place was less than half-full, and waiters were rushing around looking very busy. After more than one hour, we had not received any food. My friend asked the waiter when we could expect to eat, and 10 minutes later, the starters finally appeared. The soup and Salmon Tartare were acceptable. After another wait of 30 minutes, my friend caught the waiter and gestured at his watch, to which the waiter replied "I'm not the cook!" Finally the main courses arrived. The Risotto Porcini was gluey and excessively salted. The veal scallopini was small but tender, and the vegetable risotto was acceptable. The staff seems to have perfected the art of ignoring the customer, never making eye contact. Needless to say, we did not order dessert, just coffee which was brought very quickly at this point, along with the bill for the overpriced meal. The food alone cost $116, which is way overboard for what we had. We won't be going back.
