With reportedly the most restaurants per capita in North America, serving dishes from all across the globe, Montreal is famed for its culinary culture. Make sure you try some of Montreal’s finest food at these downtown eateries.
You’d never guess from Café Il Cortile’s modest storefront on busy Sherbrooke Street that it is one of the most charming and authentically Italian eateries in the city. Inside, decorative tiles and wooden decor transport you to Europe, and the restaurant’s hidden terrace is truly magical. The ambience is complemented by the food, which is inspired by the restaurant’s roots in Scanno, Italy.
