Three delightfully decorated halls in the Empire style that dominated

For first time diners at Aya; after hearing rave reviews from a few friends who had previously eaten here; we too were impressed by the Quality, Tastiness and Portion Sizes of every dish we ordered. Plus Ricky and His Staff truly understand SERVICE. Although the staff were not hovering over our table, they were always available whenever needed. For starters we ordered the Fatouche Salad - as they had run out of their stuffed eggplant starter which disappointed us at the start - yet for a replacement dish we weren’t disappointed for long. We also ordered the grilled cauliflower and an order of their grilled octopus. We enjoyed them all but my personal preference is still grilled octopus that has been marinated and served with some olive oil, red onions & capers. Our Mains were the Chicken Kebab and the Beef Kebab and they were both delish! Oh don’t forgot to order their French Fires as a side as they make a perfect complement to the mains - but mention to the waiter that with the fries ordered - unless you are very hungry - the chef can forgot about including the roasted potatoes with the mains. Definitely a return visit is called for with other family members.

About the restaurant
Da Emma is a hidden Italian gem located right in downtown Montreal. Since the restaurant itself is located below street level, many people pass by this little trattoria every day without realizing it. The only sign for it is painted on a nearby brick wall in black and white and consists entirely of a downward pointing arrow and the word "Emma". It is because it is a little hard to find that diners feel like they are in on a secret not everyone knows about.Inside, Da Emma goes with a sleek and modern style complete with dark wood tones and white tablecloths. The menu consists of both classic and modern Italian plates. Some of the intricate plates that the kitchen puts out include fettucini with porcini mushroom and truffle, veal breast in rosemary sauce, four cheese tortellini in alfredo sauce and house made meatballs in marinara.

Always a great experience here! Food is always reliable and good (will remind you of Italy), wine always hits the spot, and service makes you feel like you’re family! Shout out to Franco who took care of us all throughout the night; without a doubt one of the best customer service experiences we’ve ever had in a restaurant! Will be back for sure and highly recommended!
