Surprise that it was no longer a BYOB. The restaurant has a relaxing appeal with some charming décor and a delightful entertaining singing chef. The wine selection is small but ok. Our server was good and attentive. The Salmon tartar was exceptional and the salad was good. Both the Ravioli and cod dishes were very good. Pizza was tasty, dough was a bit like a pan pizza. Dessert's are small but good, matched with a long espresso.
Overall a good place to get together and enjoy some good food.

Bonne ambiance, tres bon service, cuisine italienne de qualite avec qqs plats francais aussi. Les vins sont bons aussi. Et Evidement les desserts sont delicieux. Cerise sur le gateau, les prestations accapela du chef/tenor pour la clientele. Nous etions en terrase, tres agreable en ce moment. Un petit peu plus bruyant a l'ínterieur (la rancon du succes). Adresse tres sympathique. A reessayer pour notre part!

We were a small group and all had a four-course menu. Salad, antipasti and main courses (especially the pasta) were great! Desserts (we tried three) were less enjoyed by our group. Staff is very friendly and the chef comes out to sing opera (and even happy birthday). Would definitely return!

One meal was great (ravioli); the other was a miss (5-cheese pizza). There was way too much cheese and the crust was a bit thick.
Pick your meal carefully and you’ll have a nice time. Good atmosphere and service.

I was planning on going to this restaurant for my birthday in March, but then Covid-19 happened. I have been wanting to try this place for a while. Was there this past Saturday and it did not disappoint. Everything was perfect and they really did a good job with making the place feel safe. Sanitary measures were followed. We had front row seats to watch the chef cook and listen to him sing. Food and service were excellent! We will definitely go back!
Thanks.

The service was quite efficient. The staff were courteous and friendly. The desert were very good although the chocolate mousse was not the freshest I have had. The raviolis, the risotto and the salmon tartare were very tasty. The big disappointment were the pizzas. The dough was probably from a frozen pizza box and the toppings were not exactly the best quality. Nice selection of reasonably priced wine.

I loved coming back to Il Bazzali.

Unfortunately "bring your own wine" is not an option for now it seems

Due to the current situation and the decrease in the number of seats in the restaurant, we have decided to change our liquor license, in order to continue to serve you. We are no longer a bring your wine, but we now offer a nice cocktail menu as well as a selection of private imported wine at a low price. Hope to see you again, and again !

I will definitely come back. Excellent food and service. There was only one point that could have raised them to 10/10: I was asked if it was a special occasion. Yes, I said, This was my birthday :-) . Any dessert or after drink could have done the trick! Aside from that, great place!

Our entrés, the calamari, the burrata and the bruschetta were equally satisfying. Our main courses were pasta since we went out wanting carbs. My ravioli with butter, sage and parmesan sauce was out of this world. And I've eaten this dish in many towns across Italy and II BAZZALI is a top contender for first place. Above all the prices are very very reasonable.

Food was delicious, lots of choices (I was happily surprised) and the chef is passionate.
Seating is a bit tight: we were 14 and not a lot of space to move around but nothing to take away the positive experience

Excellent, le chef qui chante des airs d’opéra et des chansons italiennes... vraiment chouette.

Le seul bémol, le cappuccino ordinaire et le niveau de bruit est élevé.

Service excellent!

Hidden gem in Montreal. Can’t wait to go back. Monday to Thursday Chef Davide sings opera while he cooks. Everything is perfect about this restaurant. Excellent place to go when celebrating a birthday. Chef says he loves singing the happy birthday song. Can’t wait to go back.
