We had not been back to this little gem of a restaurant since our last trip to Montreal more than 10 years ago. We were immediately welcomed by the owner Marcello like old friends. He seated us and made us feel as if we were a regular. The meal was superb. Appetizers, Main Course and desert. Marcello made sure to let us know that if there was not something on their extensive menu they would endeavor to make what we would like. We really enjoyed the tray of Walnuts post entrée. We visited on a Wednesday evening and the restaurant remained filled throughout the evening. The staff were engaging and Marcello checked in with us every 5 minutes to ensure our satisfaction. While somethings have changed ( Hotel de la Montagne is gone) this place remains a highlight of our visit everytime.

There was a group of ten of us walking the block and a half from the Loews Hotel in an absolute downpour. We arrived at Bis laughing and wet, and we all appreciated the warm, cozy and friendly welcome.

Our seating was a long table towards the back of the restaurant and the restaurant was noisy and exciting.

Our dinners included a trio of appetizers (the poutine was a huge hit) along with calamari. Two of us shared the Lamb Osso Bucco which was excellent. Others talked about their Rissotto being very good and everyone was impressed with the Creme Brûlée dessert.

Good wine selection and very good service. In the end we were all pleased and surprised at the total bill.

Very good restaurant.

A group of 6 ate at Bis on a Monday night (Canadian Thanksgiving) and the meal, wine, atmosphere and service was terrific.

This Montreal restaurant was a good find for us. We started with a small serving of meatballs as soon as we entered and so it went from there. There were many good choices. I had carbonara. It was creamy and good but lacked the egg I had expected. Portions were huge! Wine was excellent! Walnuts were served after dinner as was biscotti (too hard and rather tasteless). Creme brulee was great! Prices are high but it is a city restaurant. If you want good Italian food, go to this restaurant.

This elegant Restaurant is located at Montreal’s Mountain St. It impacts us for the awesome attention of the Host/Manager/Owner, Marcello and the waitress Filippo.
I recommend to make reservations ahead of time.
There is a cozy Inside seating or outside in a nice deck over the street.
Once inside we got seated by the Impressive Wine Cava.
As a welcome, the Chef grated us with a delicate serving of a Meat Balls in Marinara Sauce.
As in a good Italian restaurant bread was there from the beginning till the end and refilled as necessary. Food and desserts was excellent and well presented. After Dinner, at coffee time, a basket of nuts (on the house) was presented to us, I imagine was a Thanks for being there. The espressos was served (as it should) with biscotti.
Couldn't be more Italian!
I strongly recommend this restaurant. This is the kind of place that you’ll never regret to visit it.
