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.


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