While out for a walk near our hotel in downtown Montreal, we came across the Il Campari Centro & decided to try it since my husband & I both love Italian food. The service, food & ambience were absolutely the best! We started with the buffalo mozzarella cheese that is flown in fresh from Italy, & the calamari fritti, followed by the tagliatelle & vegetable risotto. My husband chose a 2014 Brunello wine which was excellent! Dessert was Tiramisu. One of the best I've had! Presentation was excellent. Our very knowledgeable & attentive waiter Ahmed, kept our wine glasses filled & we enjoyed some pleasant conversation with him about the sights of Montreal & hockey & football. A really lovely evening & would highly recommend this restaurant. You won't be disappointed.
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 & 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. "Montreal, you are spoiled!"
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, & within five minutes of conversation had us feeling as if we had been longtime friends of his. & then there was our simply excellent waiter Franco, who epitomizes first class professional service. Our wine glasses were never empty & neither were our plates! & what terrific wine & 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, & 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 & in some instances exceeded that of the finest Italian restaurants we have been to in both Chicago & Italy. What was in a total class by itself, however, was the incomparable service rendered to us by Pietro & Franco. That is what made our dining experience perfect, & we know exactly where we will be eating Italian when we visit Montreal again. Ken & Karen Calvin Chicago, Il., USA
