Quest for an interesting Italian Restaurant

I ate at Primo e Secondo last year. One of the best Italian meals I've had outside of Italy (and better than some I've had there).

It isn't cheap, but considering it's market cuisine, sourced from the Jean Talon Market around the corner, you're getting primo ingredients. I can't speak to the consistency of the cooking, but it's always had the same chef-owner, Roberto, who lives upstairs, and whose family helps run the place. If that isn't old-school Italian, I don't know what is.
