    unpleased
    Dined on 5/5/2013
    In the past Le Petit Italien has always been an adventure in delicious italian food & warm, energetic service. Sunday night was the first weekend the terrace opened with the beautiful weather, and the service was abrupt and negligent. Our food order came with error and the quality was far far from what it has ever been. Perhaps they were having a bad night ( transition into their terrace season). With a wonderful reputation and many years of delicious history, i do hope they regroup and regain their momentum.

    Restaurant où il est facile de réserver à la dernière minute, surtout après les heures de souper avant les pièces de théâtre. Très bonnes pâtes, sans être complètement authentique au niveau italien, on y retourne pour les classiques (particulièrement les Penne con anatra). J’ai déjà hâte d’y souper à nouveau.

    First time here and on the recommendation of Open Table's "Neighborhood Gem" rating. Great little bistro atmosphere although very noisy group this evening. The food was wonderful however the wait staff was not entirely sure about how to describe the menu, so we struggled with a couple of items which turned out to eb delicious anyway - super friendly though and caring. We would go back for sure!

    I have been going to the Petit Italien for years, I continue going because it it trendy and a good distance from my home, however in the last months the menu has changed and honestly it is very limited for those of us who do not eat meat. they used to have at least three pasta dished without meat to choose from they are down to one. so although I go often I end up eating the same dish, it is getting boring.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2010VIP

    I'm a regular but this time was particularly bad. Two attempts, with the wrong order. Sent a salad back, was given the same one again. Ordered wine, had to ask to get it... noisy, messy. Main course - something that I ear regularly - tasted dry, the waiter told me that ingredients were missing. He brought my plate back to the kitchen and they threw some olive oil on it and voilà! Didnt bother starting over!

    I had been there many times, however the menu has changed: the nice assortment of salads are gone and so are the pastas without meat, I am a vegetarian, I do eat fish, and they used to have a pasta with vegetables no longer available. i also noticed that the table d'hote menu has significantly increased in price. The table d'hote is too expensive for a bistro.

    Had a great time once again. Since summer has finally come, the front windows, and the terrace, were open which added to the (already) very nice ambiance. The food was really good and we've been able to discuss openly given the good spirit all around us.

    Went there with another couple, had a great meal. Started with a fresh salad of mixed greens and asparagus, fiddle head and shaved veg amongst other things. Took arctic char special which was amazing, fish was perched a top of mix of beans, fava, asparagus with a delicious sauce. Fish had been cooked with the skin on which was crunchy and totally delicious. others at table had mushroom risotto, salmon and pasta special with clams and sausage, all excellent. Quality of ingredients very fresh and good. Service was friendly and efficient. Very fun place to go with friends. Always a great bet!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2004
    Dined on 3/21/2012
    The restaurant is very clean and nicely lit. The seating is comfortable ( there is exterior seating but we sat indoors). The menu had the option of small or regular portions which is great especially at lunch. It wasn't easy to find a veg dish. My companion had a pasta dish with confit du canard which she liked very much. I had the risotto with mushrooms which was a little too al dente ( it's a fine line). The wine list was fine and the coffee very good. All in all a pleasant experience but not a "wow I must come back"

    They sure pack them into this pretty little restaurant on swishy Bernard St. But the buzz is exciting rather than irritating, the service excellent and the food unfussily exquisite -- not to mention satisfying. My plate of beef cheeks (world's tenderest meat) looked modest enough, for example, but it was all I could do to waddle out of there, appetite fully sated. A great evening. Must come back in the summer and nab a terrace seat.

    I had an amazing date here. I had asked for a booth seat in the reservation and got exactly that. The staff was attentive and overall excellent. The food was too. The wine was exotic, and I didn't order a good one, but the variety was impressive. GREAT for a date.

    Very nice food and dining experience. Much better than average neighborhood eatery. I was very impressed that the manager called us in advance to warn us they had a party of 35 and even though he didn't think it was a problem, he just wanted to give us the chance to cancel. We didn't cancel and it was fine. The large party gave the place alot of life for a monday night.

    J'adore ce petit resto de l'avenue Bernard. Les pâtes sont délicieuses et l'ambiance est réconfortante. Un endroit idéal pour un souper en amoureux ou une sortie de filles. L'été il y a une terrasse pour déguster l'apéro sous le soleil et l'hiver quel bonheur de s'y retrouver pour prendre une bonne bouffe en bonne compagnie.

    great food, amazing decor and ambiance. sadly the staff just was not attentive enough and let us wait around for too long to order, to follow up. dessert wine and dessert took forever while others were being served. they joked and talked a lot between themselves and looked understaff. boss boy was very effective and things could have gone a little better if they let him wait tables

    OpenTable Diner Since 2011

    Took a 9:00 PM reservation on Friday night, the restaurant was lively. We got a table on the sidewalk after some 'negotiation' with the waitstaff. My date and I split the bruschetta, a pleasant take on the traditional dish; I would order again! I had the full size portion of the scallop risotto, comforting and satisfying and the Italian beer they serve. The service was attentive for a busy Friday night. The kitchen was slow, as there was 20 minutes between our courses, but overall a pleasant meal for under 80 for 2.

    Upon arrival, we were informed that we were the first guests to have reserved on Open Table. They offered us dessert and coffee. That was generous and classy. Once again, though, as a member of Open Table we were seated in a most chaotic area of the restaurant. I,once again,changed our seating arrangements from table to bar which has now been my preferred choice of seating in lively restaurants as this. The bartender/server was uber-friendly and she kindly assisted us in our menu choices. We ate a beautiful caprese to start and ended with a pasta dish topped with rapini and sausage. It was a delight. I recommend this restaurant to everyone.
