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 took a quick cab ride out to the Little Italy section of Montreal. There does not seem to be a central core area of restaurants, shops etc. Except for Milano's, which is quite possibly the best Italian market in North America!!!! Great shopping there,...More
