A word from Hostaria
Here at Hostaria distinct aromas bring back sweet memories of Sunday gatherings when tables were set by our grand-mothers. These women were proud and happy to welcome their children and grand-children to share not only memorable meals, but more importantly to celebrate life and the pleasures of being together!

Hostaria is synonymous with the comfort of home; a place where well-being reigns and the soul is filled with nostalgia for those happy days…

The kitchen is our workshop… our source of creativity, where our staff /chefs gather(s) regularly to share their ideas, their gastronomical experiences and their well-kept family recipes.

Meanwhile, our dining room is a melting pot of past and present culinary experiences. Here warm Italian hospitality is inherent… this is our formula, this is who we are… this is Hostaria!

    from the very moment we entered Hostaria, for our first time, we were warmly greeted by a staff who work together like a well oiled machine. The food was beyond our expectations. This was the best Italian food we've eaten in Montreal. Thanks for a memorable evening!!

    Some of the best food we have had anywhere. Fresh mozzarella with antipasti vegetables, mixed seafood pasta, and the amazing suckling pig. Everything perfectly cooked, fresh, delicious--and great wines to go with it!

    Hostaria is wonderful! The food is excellent, fresh, flavorful and delicious. The atmosphere is great, wonderful neighborhood feel. Family friendly, excellent service...the bison ribs we had was fall off the bone fantastic. Also try the lamb pasta and Cornish hen in spicy sauce. You won't be disappointed. We will definitely go there again on our next visit to Montreal!

    Nous avons mangé chez Hostaria, l'ancien Il Mulino récemment. Le service fut exécuté avec brio et la nourriture présentée de façon originale mais avec des portions raisonnables. Tout était délicieux du début à la fin. Il y a même un service de valet car les endroits pour stationner sont rarissimes. Nous y retournerons certainement. Ils sont même ouverts le midi les vendredis et samedis.

    My wife and I were in the mood for a genuine Italian meal and were delighted with the result. We arrived at this restaurant in Little Italy and were welcomed warmly by Andreas, the Maitre'd. We were ushered immediately to a nice quiet table and the menu and daily specials were explained with clarity and enthusiasm. Andreas' recommendations that were on the mark, including an excellent sangiovese from Umbria to accompany our dinner.The food was served hot, without undue waiting but not rushed, and each dish was excellent. The highlights for us were the braised duck ravioli, the eggplant parmagiana, and the excellent veal. Each of the waiters was friendly, attentive and professional. We felt like we could have been in Italy.

    Nestled in the small Italian neighborhood in Montreal is this tiny gem. We got a little bit of everything, and most of the awesome stuff we tried was written on the wall-menu. Definitely try their versions of Campari mixed drinks and their Aperol Spritz. I will definitely go back when I am back in Montreal!

    Bel endroit où tout est mis en place afin que l'on vive une belle expérience. L'accueil, la table, le couvert et le service sont soignés. Chaque plat nous est bien expliqué de façon à nous donner l'envie de le choisir. Nous n'avons pas été déçues tout au long du repas. Belles découvertes, les anchois en salade et les artichauts frits.

    Knowledgeable and pleasant staff, interesting menu, outstanding execution in the kitchen. The only drawback is that the apps and sides that I saw/ate are very large and priced accordingly, so if you are dining alone, it could be a problem; sharing the same things overcomes that, but... Not inexpensive , but I think the value is there for a special occasion, and I will definitely return with my better half.

    My first time at Hostaria and was very impressed with the menu, service and most of all the professionalism of the staff. The waiter took the time to explain certain items on the menu and was very accommodating with suggestions. I had requested a non-crowded seating and was very happy with my seat once we were seated. I definitely would return to try more dishes. The entrees of mixed vegetables were excellent and interesting. The cavatelli with lamb/buffalo was amazing as well as our other dishes that we ordered such as the breaded flat veal chop. Service was well-timed and friendly, wines were affordable."

    I enjoyed the food but was expecting more. Our dinner was good not great and for these prices you have options. Right now if you want to try Hysteria go for lunch. Their 25$ lunch is a great deal.

    Hysteria is great find. The food is simply delicious. I really love their 25$ lunch special. Whatever you eat you must start with their anti pasta marinated vegetables... wow they good. Can't wait to go back and try something else.
