Background on Montreal Restaurants

 

As part of my trip to Montreal, I did much research via chowhound, Fodor's, Frommer's, Yahoo travel, and other web sites on good restaurants nearby. I knew I wanted to eat at places that I can't find back at home. That meant French bistros and nice bakeries. But it also meant so much more. I learned Montreal really was a good town for foodies, with countless other unique dining experiences with restaurants specializing in items ranging from fois gras and Montreal bagels to smoked meats and poutine. Even though I was in the city for five days, I could've easily filled many times more days than that with recommended restaurants.

 

Context for this Particular Restaurant

 

Research be damned! After landing, I was hungry and didn't want to try to make decisions. We ended up at Pizza Donini because it was recommended by someone who works at our hotel, three blocks away.

I later learned it's a chain with many locations throughout Montreal.

 

Pizza Donini Review

 

Pizza Donini served us respectable pizzas with a quality crust. It reminded me very much of Amici's in the bay area.

 

We tried two pizzas and enjoyed both of them.

  • A margherita, a pizza topped with chunks of tomato and dried basil.
  • A "trio legumi," a pizza with eggplant, artichokes, and sun-dried tomatoes, all hidden under the cheese.

 

Pizza Donini serves pastas, sandwiches, and salads in addition to pizzas. We didn't try any of those.
