About us

The creation of young, up and coming Montreal restaurateurs, Wienstein & Gavino’s debuted in Montreal in 1996. W&G is a large Mediterranean restaurant spanning two floors and complimented by two terraces in the summer months. A large bar is the focal point of the first floor while the open kitchen complete with brick pizza oven is the main attraction upstairs. W&G is best known for its fresh, homemade pasta and traditional sauces and thin crust pizza. There is also a good selection of steaks, veal, and seafood. W&G serves lunch and dinner every day with a weekly table d’hôte available daily at $12-$16 for lunch and starting at $23 for dinner. In addition, a selection of pizza and pasta is available for 10$ from 11a.m. until 3p.m. for the lunch crowd and after 10pm every day for late night diners looking for a meal after the game, a concert downtown or before hitting the dance floor. W&G can also accommodate groups and can plan your party for you whether you’ve invited 10 people or 300 people! From Monday to Friday there is a “happy hour” at the W&G bar where guests can enjoy 2 for 1 from 4pm until 8pm. After cocktails at the bar, you can choose from one of the largest wine cellars in the city, stocked with reasonably priced wines, private imports, or premium fine wines. The focus is always fun at W&G with a DJ keeping things lively on the weekend and special events year-round. There is always something interesting going on at W&G!

Just this past weekend my girlfriend and I had arranged a weekend in Montreal to celebrate her birthday. Prior to our travels, we didn't have anything set in stone as to where we wanted to have dinner. After deciding on Italian cuisine we narrowed our decision to a couple of restaurants one of which we concluded on, and that was W&Gs. Everything and anything you would want hope for on a night out were simply amazing. Our server, Tony was one of the best I've ever had. Great sense of humour, made us feel very welcomed and chatted with us throughout the entire night. He was very personable and had great energy. It's funny how in today's world we assume everyone to be like that in the serving industry only to be disappointed more times than not. Sure as heck not at W&G. The food was amazing. one of the best firewood pizzas I've had, I'm a big eater and love high-quality food, as does my girlfriend. She loved her pasta, White sangria was awesome, dessert was super tasty and the overall vibe of the restaurant was extremely welcoming and spacious. Overall I couldn't ask for more and thought it ought to be recognized and written about. I will return, and we need more Tonys in the world.

Wienstein & Gavino's has three inside levels in addition to an outside dining area. We opted fot the upper level where noise from bar was reduced and gave an excellent vies of second level where kitchen is located (about 6 steps lower than upper). Dinner start with a small loaf of warm bread and dipping sauce. Fairly extensive menu with many options. We chose the Margarita pizza -divided into 4 pieces. We thought we wold each have one piece and take the others back to our hotel. we ate the entire pizza - it was fantastic. . Service was over the top. ext night we were going to have dinner with a friend. We went back to Wienstein & Gavino's for another excellent meal. We ordered Caesay salad and pasta penne and split them between us. Our friend had lasagna - all plates were cleaned. We recommend this as an excellent restaurant for dinner or lunch. Five stars for food and service.

Ça faisait quelques temps que je n'avais pas visité le Weinstein et j'y ai retrouvé le même plaisir qu'avant. Des bonnes pâtes, un menu simple. Le genre d'endroit qui reste une valeur sûre avec le temps. À visiter pour un repas de pâtes. Et le dessert était copieux et délicieux!.

Très belle soirée, la bouffe est exquise et le staff vraiment courtois et attentionné. Merci aussi à M.Nikolas (manager) pour toutes les petites attentions à l'occasion de nos retrouvailles de Collège!! J'y retourne bientôt!

Global disappointment by the 12 of us, a group of international 30 y old people
Food and beverage
Beer is one of the more expensive one we took : mainstream brands at 9 dollars the pint.
Food is low quality : we tested different pizzas and pastas : crust tasteless, very salty topings, missing or non listed toppings
Tiramisus is industrial quality ... for 9 bucks, we would expect something different.

Service :
really poor. It s hard to describe more, as the waiter was a ghost with mission to take the orders and payment as fast as possible

Decoration :
OK. Huge restaurant in Italian style

Chic resto branché, bonne bouffe, bon prix. C'est une bonne place à aller en groupe. La musique est un peu trop forte pour des soirées plus intimes, mais l'ambiance est idéale pour le happy hour et le souper branché.

Le service est plus efficace que chaleureux.

J'y retourne souvent.

Suite à un concours gagné avec le restaurant, nous avons eu la chance de cuisiner notre propre pizza pour ensuite la manger! C'était DÉLICIEUX. Le service est extraordinaire, tout le monde est souriant. Le décor est magnifique. C'est vraiment un endroit à découvrir!

This place is pretty over rated. I got the mushroom pizza and my boyfriend the prosciutto pizza. They were OKAY. But not worth the price. Our entree was very good. The fresh mozzarella ball with tomatoes. Literally the best thing there was the free hot bread with olive oil and pesto.
Also way too dark and loud.

Nous avons choici la terrasse mais on a trouvé ça un peu trop tassé.
Le service a été fait de façon machinale sans courtoisie. Les serveurs ont toujours l'air affairés mais on a du faire signe pour commander et on a attendu 1/2 heure avant de recevoir nos plats.
Les assiettes: 1) pizza au homard- elle est arrivée froide et était sans saveurs. 2) Osso Bucco- au moins 3 morceaux de jarret mal apprêtés, pas tendre, servis sur un spaghetti sauce tomate. Les pâtes était la seule chose ¨potable¨ dans l'assiette. Verre de vin maison de la pire qualité qui existe. Tout ça avec une facture de $45. moins le pourboire.
Un autre resto. a Montréal sur la liste noire pour nous.

J'y étais déjà allée dans le passé, et j'en avais gardé un bon souvenir. Cette fois, j'ai moins apprécié. Nous étions un groupe et fêtions la fête d'une amie. Le serveur, bien que sûrement pétri de bonne foi, semblait complètement dépassé par les événements, requérant notre patience à chaque fois qu'il parlait. Ce n'est pas parce que vous nous demandez d'être patients que d'attendre constamment après vous est excusable, mon cher. Les plats étaient bons, mais pas extraordinaire, et ça ne valait surtout pas le prix. Une minestrone, des penne à la gigi et deux bières pour un total de 45$. La soupe était immense, mais le plat principal m'a laissée sur ma faim. C'est exagéré. Certains des convives ont dû faire des pieds et des mains pour seulement obtenir la carte des vins. Une autre convive avait demandé une salade avec une crevette en extra, elle a obtenu la brochette au complet, et ce, bien après sa salade, alors qu'elle avait précisé vouloir les deux ensemble. Certains des membres du personnel ne se gênaient pas pour nous crier après lorsque nous nous trouvions sur leur chemin par inadvertance. Cela rendait tout le monde mal à l'aise. Bref, la nourriture était bonne, mais le service long, et le rapport qualité/prix très ordinaire.

I was very disappointed with this restaurant. I've been to it twice and ordered 2 different main dishes.
The first time I tried the linguine romanoff. I've had very good Romanoff before and what I was served this night was not even close. It tasted like a tomato sauce with cream and thrown in mushrooms.
The second time I felt I would go with something a lot more familiar, linguine Rose. Very disappointing...The pasta was undercooked and the Rose once again tasted like tomato sauce with cream. It lacked that gentle creamy texture and flavor a good Rose has.

I will admit the service was friendly and pleasant. Also both the red and white sangria's were fantastic. I personally recommend the white sangria.

-La serveuse ne nous a jamais proposé plus d'eau à boire le verre auquel on a eu droit au début du repas.
-On était 4 sur une petite baguette de pain et on a demandé si on pouvait en avoir une autre elle nous a dit oui mais elle ne nous en a jamais rapporté, il a fallut allé voir un autre serveur pour en avoir.
-Un busboy a pris SANS LE DEMANDER l'huile qui était sur notre table l'a enlevé et nous étions entrain de manger et il a remplacé cette huile par UN POT D'HUILE VIDE... Non, mais !
-J'ai aimé les pâtes mais à cause des circonstances je n'y retournerai plus et je ne le recommande pas.

Lack of Organization in reaching your table (but of course this was New Year's Eve) . Great Service from the waitress : fast and enjoyable . My Wife took the risotto which was great in the New Year's Menu and i sadly took the Carne - it was humongous. Food Overall is 4 stars.
