Best Authentic Italian in Montreal

We truly enjoyed Ristorante Il Mulino http://www.ilmulino.ca/Location.htm#Map on a trip to Montreal last fall. The service was outstanding. The pasta was so fresh and light, reminded me of being in Rome. I had a veal chop that was spectacular.

Venice - Anniversary Dinner

Thanks for the Verona tip! We are going to be landing and de-jetlagging in Verona. I had my eye on Bottega, but feel much better about it now that I have a real rec on it!

visitor seeks charlotte NC's best local fare

- Mert's is top of the list. Excellent soul/southern fare. Good lunch or dinner. (214 N College St)
- Blue is a good upscale spot for Mediterranean / Middle Eastern fare. Also has a bar full of hip young things and live jazz on the weekends. (5th & College)
- Dish is another southern comfort food spot a short distance away from uptown. Good chicken & dumplings, etc. (1220 Thomas Ave )
- Not really dinner, but Press is a comfortable wine bar with apps to share like cheese plates, etc. (333 W. Trade St.)
- Rira is an excellent Irish pub with decent pub grub. (Tryon & 5th)

Bistecca Fiorentina - Siena or Rome

We are hoping to find a good place to have bistecca fiorentina while in either Siena or Rome. We neglected to have any on our trip to Florence a couple of years ago, and I am determined to have the real thing on this trip!

Venice - Anniversary Dinner

My husband and I are celebrating our anniversary in Venice in 2 weeks. We are there for 3 days (Sun-Tues) as part of 2 weeks in Italy. I am hoping to get advice on a restaurant for our anniversary dinner, which is on Tuesday.

We have been to Venice a couple of years ago, and plan to return to Al Covo and Osteria Oliva Nera for dinner on the other two nights we are in town. We loved both restaurants on our first trip!

Also, any suggestions on places for lunch during our stay would be helpful! Thanks!
