Great italian restaurant
The fresh Burrata to start the meal was fantastic and the main course was ok. Food was definitely great but definitively over-priced for what you get. Amazing service and would recommend.

Meilleur resto Italien à Montréal
Parfait comme toujours. Les pates parpadelles au ragout aux trois viandes et sa fameuse sauce tomates etaient divines. Le meilleur resto Italien en ville. Cuisine reconfortante. Parfait pour lunch d'affaires.

Très bonne table, cuisine
Très bonne table, cuisine sérieuse mais pas ampoulée, bien vivante, fraîche, vraiment goûteux et digne de la réputation de l'endroit.
Service de premier ordre, généreux, vins intéressants.
Cher, oui, mais on a pas l'impression de se faire avoir.

We had dinner there on a Monday.
We had dinner there on a Monday. Service was friendly and professional.
The food was refined, tasty and delicious: Colors, textures, flavours and the overall presentation made for most pleasing veal fillet served with fresh vegetable cooked to perfection and napped with a delicious (and very light) sauce. The fish we ordered was also a winner.
The wine wine card shows depth and quality for all budgets.
An overall very pleasant experience a few touches shy of perfection.
Prices are a bit high side but to be expected for overall quality.
We will be coming back.

Top Notch Ambiance, Food and Wine
It's easy to see how this beautiful location was once an architect's office. The 20 ft ceilings & the lights give an airy feel to this long & narrow space. Our waiter was passionate about the wines & food. We had bubbles, followed by a full bodied Tuscan. Our table in front of the open-style kitchen allowed us to view Graziella & team quietly working side by side to produce each plate of gastronomic elegance and simplicity. The portions are quite large, so I had the scallops and the gravalax, the latter presented as a beautiful rose. My husband had the lobster bisque which was heavenly, followed by an outstanding lamb. All was cooked to perfection and beautifully presented as well. Cheeses and freshly baked cookies to end. Outstanding.

We were in Montreal for the Formula 1 race weekend, and went to Graziella on Wednesday night. A great start to our week. A small, elegant restaurant, with exquisite food and an excellent wine list. Alex took great care of us, and recommended two terrific wines for our dinner. All four of us had incredible entrees, and we made friends with some Montreal natives dining at the next table during desert. They were surprised that we'd found Graziella. We walked out after a quick three hours very happy. Pricey, but well worth it!

Italian gastronomy at its best!
This is the kind of restaurant I love to go to when in good company to savour the unique and imaginative dishes that Graziella keeps creating to our infinite pleasure. From appetizers to desserts, the menu offers beautifully concocted dishes, making the visit to this restaurant a delight. The service is always attentive, and the atmosphere relaxed. On oasis of serenity in a part of town that is more enclined toward noisy and trendy restaurants! Always a treat to go back to what I consider the best Italian restaurant in town!

Excellent and Well-Located
We had an outstanding meal here during the Grand Prix weekend and would highly recommend the restaurant for its food, atmosphere, service and location. The osso bucco and gnocchi were stand outs!

Outstanding dining experience
For my birthday we went to Graziella and were not disappointed. Excellent service and superb food in a great venue.

A must! Chef Graziella at her best!
Chef Graziella inspired us yet again! Her majestic dishes that are just beyond words... this is a must visit place. My boss and I were absolutely blown away at the presentation of the dishes, the quality of the food, the attentive service, and the amazing charm of the architectural design of 116 McGill!
A must for any business lunch, and a charming spot for a special occasion.
One of the best restaurants in Montreal!
Congratulations Chef Graziella and thank you!

Just one word: WOW!!!
Amazing food, excellent service, gorgeous restaurant! Everything was perfect for me! Can't wait to go back!

La quintessence italienne !
L'un des meilleurs italien à Montréal. Service de très grande qualité, nourriture goûteuse, fraîche et surtout la touche inventive de Graziella ! Un muet pour les grandes occasion. Très bon rapport Q/P pour un lunch spécial.

This is not a typical Italian
This is not a typical Italian restaurant as we use to see. This is more like the real italian cuisine you find in Italy. Everything is the freshness of the ingredients and the originality of the Chef, Graziella. Absolutely delicious and very well presented. Service is professional and the decor and the view on the nice buildings around is fantastic. You have to try it.

My expectations were high and I was not disappointed! Everything was perfect from the time you enter the restaurant with a warm welcome to the mouth watering desert at the end... Excellent and very professional service by the two or three waiters that took care of us, even if the restaurant was packed on a Saturday evening at 8h00. Dishes are simple, yet sophisticated in taste and the quality of the products on your plate is outstanding... The veal tenderloin I ordered simply melted in my mouth, same for the Osso bucco my girlfriend chose... Wine pairing proposed was excellent and $15 cheaper than what I proposed the sommelier!
I'm difficult, but this place was 10/10 for me... Maybe even 11/10!
I will definitely go again...

Food:Oui! Service: Non!
Outstanding meal and great ambiance. I would have rated it higher but the waiter was a bit disinterested. Could have been the language barrier since I speak no French but my wife and I had great waiters at other places in Montreal.
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Toujours aussi bon d'une fois a l'autre. Cuisine creative et delicieuse.

If you are looking for pasta...this isn't your place. If you want a memorable meal, Graziella delivers. Our waiter was very knowledgeable and friendly. We were English-speaking, he was Italian-speaking, and we were in French-speaking city, but it went very well. Prices are a little steep, but the value is definitely there. If you want to treat yourselves...try Graziella.

Good Italian flavors
My second time in here and always a great experience.

Une superbe soirée!!!!
Merci à Graziella et toute l'équipe pour une soirée exceptionnelle.

Spendy but soooo worth it...
The Veal and the Osso Buco were our main meals and they very wonderful! Tasty and melt in your mouth. We both had the carpaccio to start, very nice but could have been more on the plate for the price. Great service...a must try.
10/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
D'une fois à l'autre, toujours aussi agréable...!
Les gens y sont super sympathiques, des recommendations pour le vin réussies, et une bouffe d'une qualité et constance à envier.
Notre restaurant préféré à Montréal.

Good food quiet place
We were there on a weeknight, on Halloween and it was quiet. Had to push a little for the waiter to get the chef to make a vegan meal but it was very good. Small portion but very tasty blend of veggies and butternut squash purée.

Wonderful food, décor and service
Our second time dining here. First was for my wife's birthday after spending 4 months in Florence and missing the food; we'd had a wonderful time and thought the food was as good as the best we had in Tuscany. This we were celebrating the birthday of good friends from Europe at the end of their 2 weeks in Montreal. Food, service and décor were pretty close to impeccable. Even things that you think may be pedestrian (Osso Bucco, Cheese Rissotto, Roast Lamb with Rosemary) are surprisingly original and technically superb. We also had great suggestions for the white wine (the red was nice, but conservative.)
We dined early (6:45) on a Friday night and were among the first to order. The place didn't fill up until 8 or so.

Utterly delicious, as always.
Utterly delicious, as always. Terric service even at a busy lunch time. On this occasion I found that portions could be just a little bit larger -- even after dessert (fabulous cannoli) I was ready to eat again before dinner-time.
