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!
Comfort family food an a rainy night!
Simply the best place in town!
I personally know Emma, what a wonderful lady. Best Italian food in Montreal I highly recommend this restaurant. It used to be one of the first women prisons. Very romantic, nice waiters fresh food!
Fetticine à la funghi is a must! As well as the gigantic meatballs, the suckling pig and lamb. For dessert, the excellent Tiramisu.
The lamb is delicious! Nice and cozy
Try sharing the dishes - very large portions but oh so good.
Two decades on and the grand dame of Roman cuisine still plays it gratifyingly straightforward, from spaghetti alla vongole to tiramisu. [Eater 38 Member]
Traditional tastes confirm this as a real thing. Buon appetito
Best fettucine ai funghi EVER!!
The food is greaaat ad delicious, but I really got upset and disappointed by the poor service from Fernado (the waiter). He totally neglected our table! But I'll come back for sure! So tasty!
Great italian comfort food! The service is very disappointing! The waiter was not nice at all and did not provide a good service. Good thing that the food was great
Just go!! Food amazing and eat dessert!! Best spot!!
Try the maialino - it's to die for.
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.
Ask the valet parker to switch your keys - I almost got 50 Cent's Bentley.

Leonardo Di Caprio's favorite restaurant in Montreal.
The restaurant is located on the site of Montréal’s first prison for women.
If you are looking for the best italian food in town, you can't miss this restaurant. Mamma Emma, the chef, takes with her all the tradition and taste of the genuine italian culinary art.
Just get the lamb; you'll feel like fred flinstone if you are lucky to get a drumstick.

Daniel, rends-toi à l'endroit où je t'ai amené la fois où tu as failli faire exploser la voiture. Nous y sommes retourné avec nos patins. c.xx
Par exemple : essaye la glace à la vanille au sel de mer. On ne trouve pas de meilleur dessert en ville !
