We stayed in Little Italy thinking it would harken back to our trip to Italy. There are Italian restaurants here but not worth the trip if you are staying closer to downtown Montreal. The neighborhood has so rougher areas.

As a Montrealer, I'm still unsure why we have "Little Italy" as a neighborhood. Most of the touristy action there happens on St-Laurent Blvd. and by "action", I'm being generous. There are a few decent italian restaurants, but other than that, it's business as usual...More

Lively area with lots of ...obviously..Italian restaurants and excellent cafes. Next to market, close to LeRitz (indie music bar), and Mile End neighbourhood. Good beer at Birra and Vice Versa on St. Laurent. Lots of cute cafes in adjacent street (Beaubien).

We caught a cab to Little Italy and wondered why we had done so! A very ordinary area, yes it had Italian places to eat but so had downtown. It was very uninteresting place. Having said that the market certainly was good if you were...More

We stay just one block from Jean Talon Market. There was an incredible display of fresh vegetables and fruits! There are also variety of restaurants and bars within walking distance. Although this seems to be to anywhere you go in Montreal!

We visited on a very pleasant evening. The weather allowed for all the outside seating and decking to be used by the patrons of the many Italian restaurants. Valet parking was available and seemed a good idea, as parking was a nightmare. Will return for...More
