Very busy pizza place, but it is worth the wait. So many types of pizza to choose from. Try splitting a pizza and salad with someone else to do half and half!

The top rating is justified if you appreciate gourmet wood fired pizza as they are delicious. The restaurant is a busy happening place, service is excellent, great wine selection and reasonably priced. Will definitely return the next time we are in Montreal.More
