Living in Montreal for many years but Little Italy has never been a haunt of mine. Would like to change that but when I ask for suggestions no one has much to say. So foodies, I am looking for suggestions: delicious authentic food using fresh ingredients. Main dishes around $20 that offers a warm environment....
I like Vinizza (corner Jean-Talon and Casgrain). Simple and inviting, food is quite good. For top quality itialian style (as opposed to thicker more garnished north american style) pizza, you can't go wrong with Bottega (St-Zotique a few blocks east of St-Laurent). Or you could do Pizzeria Napoletana, a BYWO that is boisterous and fun (on Dante)
