Italian sausages

Which Italian butcher or whatever makes the best Italian sausages in Montreal? Willing to go anywhere in Montreal to get some, if it's good.

  1. Chez Vito, St-Urbain & Fairmount

    1. Casa Reccia (spelling?) on Sherbrooke West in NDG---don't know if they are the BEST, but they are delish!

      1. I love the ones at Milano, Intense fennel seed flavour. They are inexpensive too.

          Milano makes adorable small sausages as well as the more usual ones - probably lamb casings, the little ones? My favourites are the Tuscan lamb sausages. Friends eat those faster than I can grill them (on my little electric apartment grill)... The smaller ones are in the back, at the butchers' counter, not the salumeria counter in the middle of the store.

        2. Tranzo, on upper lachine road. Apparently they supply Momeso's with thier famous sausages.

            Tranzo is on Somerled (corner Cavendish) now. They used to be at Upper Lachine & Girouard but moved long ago- Don't think there's another one either.

              I apologize, slip of the brain. They still make great sausage though.

                I agree great Italian sausages at Tranzo.
                Make sure to call them before you go because they run out fast.
                If you ask they will even put a few aside for you.
                I also love their porchetta, which is made in house weekly.
                It is outstanding.
                They are closed Sun & Mon
