After my 2 year escapade in Milan, I came back to Montreal with a mission; to find the best Italian spots in town. It was a way to make a smooth transition and of course, to make me happy. Although most of the Italian immigrants of Montreal came from the south, you can find almost any products you need for your traditional blowout.
As for restaurants, Caffe Epoca is one of the true places in Little Italy. I still remember the feeling I got from my first pasta I ordered a while back. Not only was it incredibly delicious, but I could taste tradition in every bite. They have good pizzas and other great classics but I have to insist on the pasta; there is something very special about the texture that makes it the highlight of Epoca. Hard to put into words, so see you there and buon appetito!
