    An amazing place, both in terms of location (a former women's prison) and the wonderful chef Emma!

    The ambiance is pretty cool, as it was in what used to be a women's prison. It's very solid food, authentic, and tasty. Love the piglet, the eggplant parmigana and the Veal Ravioli.

    This place was amazing & the entire staff were so personable! They treated me like royalty including taking me back to the kitchen afterwards to meet the chef. Authentic Italian at its best!

    Fetticine à la funghi is a must! As well as the gigantic meatballs, the suckling pig and lamb. For dessert, the excellent Tiramisu.

    Two decades on and the grand dame of Roman cuisine still plays it gratifyingly straightforward, from spaghetti alla vongole to tiramisu. [Eater 38 Member]

    Veal scallopini, funghi tagliatelle, insalata di buffala make for an excellent evening when in the Old Port -of Montreal. Definitely a must when celebrating a milestone.
