Montréal, QC H2S 1L1
Here at Hostaria distinct aromas bring back sweet memories of Sunday gatherings when tables were set by our grand-mothers. These women were proud and happy to welcome their children and grand-children to share not only memorable meals, but more importantly to celebrate life and the pleasures of being together!
Hostaria is synonymous with the comfort of home; a place where well-being reigns and the soul is filled with nostalgia for those happy days…
The kitchen is our workshop… our source of creativity, where our staff /chefs gather(s) regularly to share their ideas, their gastronomical experiences and their well-kept family recipes.
Meanwhile, our dining room is a melting pot of past and present culinary experiences. Here warm Italian hospitality is inherent… this is our formula, this is who we are… this is Hostaria!

Hostaria Ratings and Reviews

Normalement, j'émets une critique constructive après une deuxième visite au minimum mais là... Pour l'heure, je peux dire que l'entrée de Carpaccio de bœuf n'était pas à la hauteur pour deux raisons: les tranches devraient être coupées finement et ne devraient pas littéralement "tremper" dans une huile... Cette façon de procéder enlève complètement toute la saveur du carpaccio qui ne doit qu'être rehaussé par un filet d'une vinaigrette maison et copeaux de parmigiano reggiano (ou similaire). Aussi, les pâtes gagneraient en richesse et splendeur si elles étaient plus moelleuses plutôt que sèches..., surtout que l'on parle de Pappardelle au 'ragoût' de sanglier donc, avec un minimum de sauce!
J'avais minutieusement choisi cet endroit compte tenu que mon invité -et futur client- était friand de cuisine italienne et que les critiques semblaient positives. Il faudra que l'on me réinvite si je veux me réconcilier avec cet endroit...
Le personnel est toutefois formidable..., et même le représentant assigné au stationnement!
Bon épanouissement à toute l'équipe malgré tout!

A very enjoyable 2nd time experience
Andreas, the maître d'hôtes, remembered our names and our likes and was helpful with suggestions. We were there with family and could share many dishes. The flash-fried artichokes were amazing, the eggplant parmesan very suave, the tomato sauce didn't overcome the taste of the eggplant. We tried the fish cooked in salt: very tender and delicate. We couldn't resist the suckling pig. The flourless cake, the lemon tart, the ricotta and pear cake: all were very good. This is now our favourite italian restaurant.

Nous avons entendu parler de ce restaurant par des amis qui apprécient la bonne cuisine italienne et notre repas fut à la hauteur de nos attentes. Nous avons tellement aimé notre soirée que nous avons déjà retenu une table pour le début de novembre.

Première visite chez Hostaria et assurément pas la dernière. Dans chaque plat, on sent l'amour de la nourriture, la qualité des ingrédients, le savoir-faire. Et le service courtois et convivial nous laisse un petit goût de revenez-y! A+ pour les calmars farcis.

I know that restaurant for 4 years already. The last time I have been there I find the food not so great then the previous time. Last Saturday it wasn't better.
Unfortunately, I won't return it. They have better tasty food in the italien district. Dommage.

We were visiting from New York and chose this restaurant by looking on the Web for a good Italian restaurant. The write up , reviews, pictures were all inviting and the price was reasonable. Though we stayed near the Old city, we thought the drive to Hostaria would be worth it. It did not disappoint! The atmosphere is charming, casual but elegant with a modern bar and wine storage area. The waiter was appropriately attentive and friendly. The food was excellent. When we finished dinner, we asked for a cab to be called and they were gracious about arranging that. Too bad this restaurant is not near my home as it easily would become one of my favorites!

Restaurant was recommended by our hotel concierge. Easy to get to with mass transit. Located in Little Italy. Very friendly and helpful staff. Service was outstanding. Food was mixed. Some dishes were excellent (veal milanese/pasta), some dishes were average (appetizers)or mediocre (fish). Even though food quality was a bit uneven, this was a fun evening. I would certainly recommend to other travelers to Montreal.

I've been here several times and always have a great meal and experience. When I think about a restaurant that I'd like to introduce a friend to, Hostaria comes to mind. The staff are friendly, helpful, and have good reason to be proud of the service and quality of food.

I went to Hostaria for my anniversary with my boyfriend. What was supposed to be a romantic tête à tête, ended up in a silent encounter as we kept quiet and smiled at every bite. We were completely blown away by the food. This wasn't a dinner but an experience. I can't wait to go back.

FELT LIKE A REAL ITALIAN MAMA WAS IN THE KITCHEN DOING HER MAGIC!!!
This restaurant in Little Italy was a recommendation and we can honestly say it was some of the best Italian food we had in a long time, real authentic classic goodies.
Delicately fried fresh artichokes, stuffed calamari, suckling pig and tagliatelli with lamb ragu and fresh artichokes. Yumme! Portions were very good (we even asked for a doggy bag for the suckling pig leftovers - no way we were going to leave this behind) . Dessert was a shared lemon pie, also close to perfection. Wine was a very interesting organic selection thanks to Andreas' expert advice. And service was really good. Hostaria is definitely on our top restaurant list.

This is our second visit to Hostaria while visiting Montreal from the states. We loved it so much the first time that we wanted to go back on this trio even though there are so many great restaurants on Montreal. Hostaria did not disappoint. Their food is fresh pure and seasonal and not overdone like so many Italian restaurants. It is true Italian eating (this is coming from a first generation Italian who grew up in the Italian importing business and travels to Italy frequently). The service is friendly yet attentive and the staff is very gracious as to changes to splitting dishes, etc. I recommend Hostaria without reservation and will return again on my next trip to Montreal.

Nous sommes toujours aussi heureux après un repas chez Hostaria. L'accueil est parfait, le service aussi et la cuisine nous fait nous sentir italiens. Nous y allons souvent avec les enfants qui s'y sentent bienvenus.

Had a charcuterie plate for starters. An Italian organic red wine to pair. Eggplant parmesan square after that. We shared the bison and it was cooked to perfection. Some short espressos to finish it off. Waiters were delightful, we were greeted kindly upon entering and even had a little friendly chat with Andreas upon leaving. The restaurant was energetic and it reminded me of dining in Italy. It was a memorable evening and I will definitely return.

Nous sommes allés plus d'une fois à ce restaurant. Nous avons constaté que le service est inégal. Une fois servi, notre serveur n'est pas venu nous voir afin de vérifier si tout allais. De plus, nous avons attendu entre 5 et 10 minutes pour recevoir notre café. Notre repas était bon par contre, encore une fois, ce n'est pas constant. Un des repas de pâtes avait des morceaux de gras non comestibles. Ce qui ne devrait pas arriver dans un restaurant si bien côté. Il reste que les aliments sont de qualités est frais.
