A word from Buona Forchetta
Depuis 1996, cette grilladerie italienne est le secret le mieux gardé de Montréal. Sans oublier ses pâtes et ses polenta, elle se spécialise dans les grillades apprêtées au beurre de cacao Mycryo. Ce corps gras d'origine végétale, obtenu par le broyage des fèves de cacao, permet d'encapsuler les jus et les saveurs.

Since 1996, this Italian steakhouse is the best-kept secret in Montreal. Without forgetting its pasta and polenta, this restaurant specializes in grilled meat, cooked in Mycryo cocoa butter. This 100% vegetable fat, obtained by pressing the cocoa beans, enables to encapsulate the juices and the flavours.

    meat lovers will taste great cuts, very tender and delightful choices, but the noise level is with television on the hockey game makes it more like a Cage aux Sport than a fine dining experience but with the fine dining price tag and poor service!!!

    Food was outstanding - perfectly cooked and delicious. We were disappointed with the lack of wines to choose from - we wanted to order a half bottle or by the glass and there were only one or two "open' bottles. A more sophisticated ambiance would suit the price level better!

  • hmmm... this isnt great italian

    The real problem here is that there probably isn't any better restaurants in the area. This is simple Italian food at a premium price. These are classic dishes found in any Italian home but no Italian would pay $15+ for a simple pasta plate. As for the grill... Same thing, nothing that will blow your mind or keep you coming for more. The resto needs renovations as the windows have tape on them and if you do want to see the worst looking stone walll, this is ur restaurant. Service, well that slow and discouraging as well. At lunch there was one waiter for the entire restaurant and he thought the most important thing to do was to stock the fridges instead of bringing drinks to clients. Also, don't order an espresso cuz it ain't esprosso...lol
