Rustic Italian

This charming Griffintown restaurant comes courtesy of Liverpool House (part of the extended Joe Beef family) alumni chef Emma Cardarelli and sommelier Ryan Gray, and the pedigree shows. The jewel box of a place (rich wood paneling and gleaming, backlit bar), serves up elevated home-style Italian with dishes like vitello tonnato make with veal tongue, and cocktails to match, like the Negroni Sbagliato, made with campari, sweet vermouth, and prosecco. The mostly natural wine list is also a draw.
