As the owners say, "Rita is a bit like Italy, but mainly representing Montreal."
Rita is the kind of place where you will find a local cuisine carefully mixed with the authenticity of Italian cuisine. The family aspect is very important for the owners of Rita, actually the owners named the restaurant Rita in honour of their two grandmothers. Yes, their respective grandmothers are called Rita! This gesture is particularly cute and thoughtful of them, isn’t it? One of the owners is Italian; the other is from Montreal, together they make the perfect marriage of two wonderful cultures.
There is a retro inspired vibe in the restaurant and its branding that brings a nostalgic and comforting atmosphere to the place. A wood oven was carefully installed to offer typical Neapolitan style pizza (or pizza Napoletana) to the delight of customers. Although pizzas are available on the menu, Rita is not just considered a pizzeria.
The owners want you to experience a culinary experience from here while paying tribute to the beauty of the techniques and ingredients of Italy.
Rendezvous at Rita, noon or evening, no matter what day of the week, to discover this new favorite on Wellington Street.
