I have looked through the archives on this one but since things seem to have changed a bit since most of the threads were created and I didn't want to take the Impasto thread where this came up too far astray, I thought I would start a thread and ask for opinions on high quality/authentic Italian restaurants in Montreal of various levels.
So I will be in Montreal soon and thought to round out my stay with an Italian restaurant outing or 2 for now and Impasto seemed to be an appetizing option from what I am reading on here.
What would people consider other worthwhile Italian restaurants either at a high end (creativity) and/or regional authenticity/fresh clean ingredients and sure handed preparation?
So far the places which have come up most often in threads here seem to be Graziella, Nora Gray, Da Emma, Primo & Secondo, Lucca and Venti.
If I have left out a worthwhile option or if you have any opinions on those mentioned, please let me know!
