Il Pagliaccio Ratings and Reviews
The restaurant was perfect for a business meeting. We were seated in a quiet area near the window. For lunch, there was a table d'Hote option. The chilled cucumber soup was wonderful. Even the pappardelle with Zucchini flowers was tasty. The tiramisu was just the aright serving and was delicious. Even though I am not a big fan. Always like a restaurant with vegetarian options. The ambiance is colourful, relaxed and comfortable.
This was our first time to eat at Pagliaccio and we were very happy with our experience. We were a group of four all who travel extensively and so have eaten in many restaurants.
Montreal can compete with the best restaurants anywhere and this restaurant was no exception. The ambiance was warm and friendly, white table cloth, friendly professional service and freshness of the ingredients. Price quality of the food cannot be beat. We also liked the selection on the menu.
We will be returning no question!
This was my second time at Il Pagliaccio. Manuel the Maitre d'/waiter remembered me as soon as I walked in the door - even though I was last there in 10 months ago. The menu is simple, but innovative and delicious. My wife ordered a dish that wasn't on the menu and it was delicious too. I was recommended an excellent wine at a reasonable price. I would not hesitate to visit again and have recommended this restaurant to my friends.
My husband and I had passed by this restaurant several times, until we finally made it inside this past Saturday. We were greeted warmly and soon decided to put ourselves in the hands of the attentive owner and have him decide our menu. He quickly formulated a plan: tomato salad with luscious burrata, grilled artichokes, handmade gnocchi in a gentle tomato sauce, and grilled pork chops accompanied with greens. Each course was served with great attention and thoughtfulness. The food was as Italian food should be: simple and showcasing quality ingredients. From our table beside the window, we sat watching the upscale bustle on rue Laurier, enjoying our wine from the Piedmont valley and feeling very lucky. We will definitely be back.
visiting Montreal, all the new rave restaurants were booked on saturday night so we went to Open Table, found a list of who could take us and read reviews. This one sounded good. from the moment we walked in, they made us feel at home. Did not rush us, made a wine recommendation (which was spot on) and ran thru the menu with us. Food was good, staff friendly, and not noisy like the trendy places.
After this restaurant was highly recommended, I was very disappointed, however the croque-en- bouche was delicious, different and appreciated. The salads were very good, I had the beetroot salad and my husband had the artichokes (which was my favorite dish of the night) but I found the pasta was way overcooked and bland and the vitello al limone was too salty.
Very disappointing service - we had to wait quite a while for our orders to be taken and the water wasn't refilled often enough. The rose wine we wanted was unavailable.
Food was very good but the wine selection is quite pricey.
We were taken aback to see that we were charged $8.00 for 2 mini Crostini appetizers served to us without us asking for it. You would think that would have been on the house or don't serve it at all!
This small restaurant certainly did surprise. The food was outstanding as was the relaxed but utterly efficient service. The menu was not extensive but i believe that this chef would be willing to create any dish that would please. Wine list was limited however the staff were quite liberal with the single glass pours. This is definitely a must-try restaurant in order to see for yourself!
