This place has everything! Great food, nice ambiance, and a chef who sings opera for you while you eat, with a most amazing tenor voice. The soup was squash puréed so smoothly it was amazing. My husband had beef scoter which was like brisket that melted in your mouth. The gnocchi and the ravioli were both superb. I highly recommend this lovely restaurant. It’s also very easy to walk there from Metro Beaubien.

This is a great neighborhood spot, unpretentious classic Italian dishes. Great portions perfect for sharing a few plates among friends. Great wine list (no longer BYOB). It's really special that the chef comes out and greets you, asks about your dinner experience and sings some beautiful Italian opera.

La perfection! Une soirée mémorable, un gros merci à Stefano, notre fantastique serveur, qui nous a si bien expliqué et conseillé, ce fut tellement bien! Le chef aussi qui vient chanter un petit air d'opéra, puis vient nous jaser un brin : extrêmement sympathique et on se serait cru en Italie, merveilleux, merci encore et c'est certain qu'on revient, consensus absolu de notre petit groupe de 4!

Il Bazzali was a wonderful experience! The food was delicious, the service also and the chef sings Opera occasionally. He comes out of the kitchen and sings Opera with his phenomenal voice! It was truly an experience that everyone should try at least once! The pizza was great and I had the seafood gluten-free pasta which was delicious! We enjoyed it all! The ambiance was also a throwback to my parents' Italian home and to the houses in Italy. Beautiful!! Thank you!!

We were a group of 4. Experienced a delicious main course of the fresh ravioli alla parmigiana. Butternut soup was lukewarm. Enjoyed the warm and crusty bread. Waiter wasn't the friendliest and even a bit rude, saying things like I told you earlier or look on the menu! and annoyed that I asked him for extra plate. The chef's salad (spinach, corn, lemon) was bland and so was the chocolate mousse with blueberries. It mentions on FB page that Davide sings from Wednesday to Sunday, although we were there for 2.5 hours, he never sang! We asked and said he was too busy rushing with orders and would eventually sing.

Food was amazing, especially when it was time for the chef to come and sang happy birthday in opera. It was great except for the service. Waiter was rude and sarcastic… besides that the portions were great and the fresh ravioli made up for it .

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.

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 !
