We live in Montreal and are in restaurants 2-3 times per week. We prioritize food quality, service, and ambiance. In a city with literally so many excellent restaurants, Lucia stands out as a cut above the rest. They start you off with a Bruschetta. Well, I know it is just Bruschetta, but it is the best I have ever tasted.... More

I've been to Lucca dozens of times and each time I am wowed by the food and service. The chalkboard menu is great for keeping the menu full of fresh and great ingredients in season. The waiters are experienced and knowledgeable and can recommend you the perfect wine with your meal. And the food on its own is just spectacular.... More

I came here for lunch with a friend. We started with a shared Caprese Salad it was nice. For the appetizer we both had salad. Main dish I had the grilled fish mix, so the salmon was decadent and the swordfish was a bit hard, served over some delicious grilled vegetables. My friend had the pasta and he says it... More

Great service on sunny Wednesday for lunch. Had the seafood pasta and it was amazing. Will be back for sure when I'm in the area.

Casual place. The atmosphere inside was so flat and uncomfortable. Service is not that great. Food without savoury or hearty. There's no soul to the dishes and this isnt how Italian food should be. I've been to many Italian restaurants and, there are a lot of other better places for genuine Italian food.

Coming to a classic restaurant looking for pizza with no smiling waiters made me regret taking my seat a little bit. But I try to never tried and kept the hunger for a pizza for some other time. Had the risotto with funghi and boar while my colleague had duck on mashed potatoes and spinach. From the bruschetta they welcome... More

My favorite Italian restaurant in Montreal. Every time I'm in town I go to eat lunch or dinner. The food is very good during both dinner and lunch. My husband, kids and friends love it. The service is great as well! I go there at least twice a week when I'm in Montreal. I even had lunch one day and... More

We have had lunch here twice and have found the food and service impeccable. They cater to business people at lunch so the service is efficient - the wait staff has no time for small talk. We will definitely return whenever we are in Montreal.

Definitely one of the best restaurant i've been to, staff is friendly, i've really enjoyed the starters. Wine isn't cheap, but this is not a restaurant you go to save money. I would recommend to everyone who likes a calm ambiance

Neighbourhood Profile
Rosemont-La Petite-Patrie
Rosemont-La Petite-Patrie has one of Canada's most prominent Italian communities, with Little Italy concentrated along the convivial bends of Saint-Lawrence Boulevard. Known for its fantastic bars and authentic Italian fare, the domain includes the Jean-Talon Market, the largest public market in North America. Open year-round, sunny months see fruit and vegetable stalls set up outside the main chalet, while blustery weather draws crowds indoors to meat and cheese sellers, spices and truffles stalls, and for regional delicacies such as rare Charlevoix lamb. While the market dictates what's fresh for local restaurateurs, visitors can please more than their palates, taking in the Renaissance architecture and frescos of Madonna della Difesa, the picturesque Rue Saint-Rominique with its cheerful homes and splendid gardens, or the ornamented thoroughfare of Plaza Saint-Hubert.
