Nous avons eu droit a une mini opérette du chef-ténor pour le souper d'anniversaire de ma copine. J'avais justement écrit un mot dans l'application Open Table. Le personnel, en toute discrétion, nous a préparé la surprise. Ma copine, la minute avant m'avait accusé de ne pas avoir de bougie pour elle ... ;)

Notre restaurant favori depuis que nous l'avons découvert. Le menu est fantastique et nous avons tout essayé.

What a fantastic experience! Didn’t even realize it was BYOB - some of the best Italian food in Montreal, outstanding, super chill service and hearty portions. Get the table d’hôte!

Restaurant chic, mais chaleureux et original! Très bonne cuisine, avec légumes de saison! Il manquait toutefois une petite étincelle dans certains plats dont le goût était particulièrement salé. Très bonne expérience somme toute!

Première expérience et je suis très satisfaite. C'est différent des autres restaurants que j'ai essayer apportez votre vin.
J'adore le concept de voir le chef chanter en même temps! c'est absolument génial!

Les pâtes étaient très bonnes, l'ambiance très sympa. Cela dit, le service manquait beaucoup d'humanisme. C'était très froid pour un resto italien.

One of our favorite restaurants. Antipasti an pasta are always especially great, and watching and hearing Il Bazzali in person is a special treat. Whenever we come up from Burlington, it is our place to dine.

Service hors pair et très avenant.
Mets exquis, ça nous rappelle l’Italie.
Davide le chef, ajoute à l’ambiance avec quelques extraits d’opéra.
Excellent choix, nous y retournerons.

Très bon, la table d’note en particulier le dimanche en vaut vraiment la peine ! Et le chef chante l’opera De temps en temps! Charmant et delicieux. Le seul bémol: manque d’aeration, quelques ventilateurs aideraient beaucoup!

The food was amazing and the service was very good too. Tables are too close to maximize the space. Very surprised to hear the chef sings.

I will definitely go back.

Très belle decouverte dans ce restaurant où il faut amener sa bouteille de vin ou sa bière si on veut consommer de l'alcool.
Le menu de table d'hôte 5 plats était fameux et agrémenté d'intermedes musicaux chantés par le chef en personne au micro devant ses fourneaux !
Soiree très sympa !

Excellent food quality. Somewhat limited menu options, but that often goes with fresh preparation.
Service was courteous, just a bit slow.

My brother and his wife were visiting and we thought we'd try someplace new in Little Italy. Terrible idea on my part. Overall very negative experience. From the soggy gnocci to the unapologetically terrible service, I would not return here nor would I recommend Il Bazzali to friend or foe.

Il Bazzali est l'un de nos restaurants préférés et nous y sommes allés jeudi avec ma soeur et notre beau-frère ce qui nous a permis de saluer et d’écouter chanter Davide, chef propriétaire. Il a une merveilleuse voix . Comme toujours tout y était parfait de l’accueil, les plats, l’atmosphère. Nous recommandons chaudement Il Bazzali ! Merci Davide ! A la Proxima. Grazie mille!

Concept intéressant, le chef qui chante l'opéra est ultrasympathique. Les plats étaient bons sans plus. Peut-être miser plus sur les herbes fraiches, parmesan frais etc. Mais on y retourne c'est sur!

We were recommended by a friend that was impressed with your restaurant and the tenor/owner. Unfortunately we were not told that the show is only week days, therefore we missed Bazzali. We know for next time.

We made a reservation at Il Bazzali for their famed operatic chef. After making the reso for August 13, we were informed by a phone call the next day that there would be no opera that night. No problem. We decided to keep our reservation. Much to our disappointment, when we arrived, instead of opera, we were met with the two chefs arguing and cursing at one another for over a ten minute period. Remember, this is an open kitchen. This set the tone for a less than pleasant experience.

The food was inconsistent: the Aubergines confit was delightful, but the Ravioli alla Parmigiana was oily and over cooked and the Macreuse de Boeuf was tougher than it ought to have been.

Our server was attentive, and friendly. In the end, the mediocre food and feuding chefs put a damper on the evening. Would not recommend.
