About us

About Our Restaurant

It was at the end of the ‘80s that Fabio (Chef and owner) and his partner Aldo (Maitre D and owner), both from the Lazio region of Italy, founded Il Boccalini Restaurant in the city of Montreal. Richly educated at Italian cuisine schools, they immediately started offering meals that are true to those traditions. With these high standards, the restaurant is still standing tall in the Saint-Laurent neighborhood welcoming a loyal clientele and new regulars daily.

The menu features a variety of Italian and Mediterranean specialties like veal shank with roasted eggplant, Milan-style rack of lamb, risotto with tomato sauce and fresh scallops, smoked salmon, and filet mignon. Of course, an assortment of pastas and pizzas are also offered. Il Boccalini also has a good selection of desserts.

Are you ready to be treated as a family member, the Il Boccalini team will offer you an experience out of the ordinary in regards of service and culinary art.
