Amazing experience! Huge thanks to Samuel and the chefs! The service was so attentive. They accommodate food allergies and took good care of us. Everything was fresh. The favor was on point and not too heavy. Lobster was huge and fresh. Definitely would love to go back again soon 💖 There are some areas for improvement. Seems a bit understaffed. There weren't many people but it was busy on a weekday evenings when the restaurant was about 1/4 full. But the quality of the service was excellent! They really treated everyone very well.

Located in Pierrefonds, Quebec, Vivaldi serves authentic Italian cuisine in an elegant atmosphere. Every menu item is prepared with high quality ingredients including handmade pasta, pure olive oil, fresh mozzarella and the freshest meats and produce available. Vivaldi has a full bar featuring an extensive wine selection by the glass.



Start out with an appetizer to share at Vivaldi such as the fried calamari or the bruschetta. Choose from classic Italian favorites such as the grilled chicken parmesan, the scallops with pesto or the linguine primavera. For dessert, try the tiramisu or the homemade chocolate cake and a cup of specialty coffee.

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.

The service was impeccable. It is on the pricier side but the food was very good. Highlights were the pistachio gelato and the espresso/latte.
