Updated: 22 March 2018
Little Italy in Montreal is a popular neighbourhood for friends and family to gather—whether for dinner, a few drinks, or ice cream on a summer afternoon. There’s a high concentration of great places to eat in the area, and they’re not only Italian-inspired. Here are some of the best restaurants in Montreal’s Little Italy.

Pizzeria Napoletana

Pizzaria, Restaurant, Italian, $$$

Pizzeria Napoletana first opened in 1948 as a small bar that attracted mostly Italian immigrant workers who came to relax and play cards. Evolving through the decades, this BYOB restaurant is currently operated by the third generation of the same family. Claiming the status of being the first pizzeria in the city, you can enjoy simple and authentic pizza and pasta dishes at this casual landmark in Montreal’s foodie history.

Save to wishlist
Dinette Triple Crown is all about Southern comfort food, meaning that it’s got a full menu of all things crispy, deep-fried, and delicious. The fried chicken is the most popular choice, but there’s also mac and cheese, sandwiches (try the “Big Nasty”), and smoked brisket. If none of this heavy, greasy goodness is your thing, there’s usually a seasonal salad on the menu.
