The pizza is very good! Everyone enjoyed it but it is a bit pricey if you have a drink and appetizers! Stick to a pizza and a bottle of wine and you'll walk out happy and some cash left in your pocket!

Best Pastry shop (patisserie) in Montreal?

I agree RhondaB.
Maybe, we're really spoiled in Montreal and have so much selection that can compete with places like Gascon. Thankfully, cause the prices are excessive for what you can find elsewhere for a fraction of the cost! My rule of thumb, Will travel for great food and will pay for the best/favorite if not.....I keep on moving! Gascon is off my list!

Too many to mention, you're best to focus on a specific area! I'm in a little italian neighbourhood and the Italian Bread is great! A fraction of the cost of the one you mentioned above and just as good!

Choosing a pasta machine

Well, I don't really know too much about the size of the KA attachments but comparing it by price. The Imperia Pasta Machine is cheaper and so are the additional attachments if you care to buy them. Not sure why KA feels it needs to charge so much but a bit of a rip off if you ask me and I know you didn't!

Choosing a pasta machine

I am Italian and all I see around me are the Imperia Pasta Machines from my mom and all the other old school pasta experts! They have had it for decades and my mom's pasta is simply unbeatable!
A neat new motor attachment can be inserted so it becomes crank free!
Any italian would only recommend the imperia. I think because it works great and lasts forever! They also have a ravioli attachment and I just bought 2 to give to my mom and mother-inlaw for Christmas. Ravioli are usually pretty long to make individually and this one seems to pump out a dozen at a time. Can't wait to test it out.
Enjoy your pasta whatever path you choose!
