The Essential Pizza Guide In Montreal


Pizza has been our little date tradition for a while now, and as soon as I say, let's go for pi... Nico is already dressed up and running to the car - I get the fastest award as: Best mama of the year. Since this is our favorite sport, eating pizza back to back is our absolute preferred meal numero dos after Brunch, cuz let's be real, nothing can beat benedicts and bacon, yet.

Montreal pizzerias have become so stylish and hip in the past few years that we feel so fancé going out to our casual-chic family date night, preach! Here's our list of our favorite spots in the city, cuz this is THE closest attempt to help any of you real pizza lovers, like each of us in our family.


Ready? Set? Let's go food crawl!

Pizzeria No900
Our absolute favorite spot! With 8 restaurants in the city, No900 is THE expert in creating an on-point crust with the most delicious and fresh ingredients we're completely addicted to. We recently visited their new spot in Laurier and it's perfect for families, spacious, comfy and super stylish.
Recommended: Bianca Prosciutto pizza with rugula
Tip: This location is super kids friendly with changing tables and high chairs (extra points!) They have restaurants all over the city, check your closest location here


Pizzeria Magpie
This gem in Mile end is a classic little spot we love! Their cozy and vintage decor, warm service and the impeccable menu will impress you and I honestly can't recommend one plate to try, cuz I love it ALL. They recently open a new location in Amherst that I totally have on my to-do list.
Tip: It's a bit busy for supper and if you're a big group, call in advance to make sure you'll have the room. I can't remember if they have changing tables, but I'll give you an update on that soonish.

Nolana Pizzeria
The only place you'll cut your very own pizza on a cutting board and vintage scissors, so darn cute! This chic and snug place has everything you'll love. With a great soft and puffy crust on each pizza Nolana recreates, it'll be a challenge to eat only one. On the menu: appetizers, salads, pizza and pasta.
Recommended: My favorite without any doubt is the Funghi Pizza.
Tip: Very small location but super kids friendly! psst psst - don't bring your stroller. 


Il Focolaio Pizza Resto
With 75 (yes, you read that right) seventy-five pizza options, calzoni and salads, this downtown spot is hands down one of the tastiest and freshest. Simple decor with a cozy air, we love coming here all the time.
Recommended: 4 cheese, Prosciutto pizzas.
Tip: We usually order here take-out just because when you order 4 pizzas, one is completely free (and extra delish!) All the info is here - you are very welcome!

Pizzeria Gema
When Pizza is done absolutely right, you simply can't resist to have it once, amiright? Gema knows how to impress us every-single-time. With the coziest, relaxed and cutest decor, we loved starting our visit with fried calamari, drinks and hella great pizza.
Recommended: Bari pizza (Sausage, rapini, olives and ricotta)
Tip: you can reserve online here, #win 


Pizzeria Geppetto 
Our hood favorite spot, Geppetto has been on Notre-Dame for a few years now with a recent opening north on Beaubien. I think I've tried their entire menu (jokes aside) and I've been there with Nico, on a date with my hubby, with girlfriends, basically, 24/7. These pizzas are delish and I love the vintage ambiance and their lovely terrace on warmer days.
Recommended: Pan-ce-tta pizza. wow.
Tip: Their wine list is impressive and the meatballs are so so good! Nico's favorite option.



Adamo Pizza
The very first authentic New York pizza style resto in the city, do I need to say anything else? This is our favorite spot to grab a slice (or a whole one) to go, (it's a counter-style type of place) with six amazing flavors and the great team of Campanelli behind the scenes. 
Recommended: Classic Margherita and Ricotta pizzas.
Tip: I usually buy the entire pizza and do half/half of two different combinations. Call in advance and pick them up on your way back home.


Pizzeria Melrose
This new kid on the block surprised us with delish and gorgeous pizzas a while back, with a Neapolitan crust, original combinations, and fresh ingredients we all loved a lot. Super trendy decor, spacious and bright, Melrose is totally worth the trip all the way to NDG.
Recommended: N.D.G Pizza (white base, potatoes, pancetta, fresh mozzarella, gruyere, and rosemary).
Tip: Come back during summer, the terrace is perfect for drinks and a lovely afternoon out.

Mangiafoco
You all know I'm a cheeseaholic, so discovering the first mozzarella bar in the city, was simply what dreams are made of, friends! Mangiafoco serves appetizers (including soups), four types of Caprese salads, a full bar of mozza-heaven and delish pizzas, including a great kids menu. and the decor? Holy mother of decor. Just check more photos here.
Recommended: Any option of the mozzarella bar, you can't leave without trying it.
Tip: They have a tiny coffee corner in front of the resto, finish with one to go if you decide to visit them during lunch time.
Cafe Parvis
I've included this place in all my to-do lists of the city, for a quick coffee stop, a drink with a friend, and this time a delicious roman style pizza. Every single item on their menu is always on point, and that's why I'm never ever tired of coming back over and over again.
Recommended: White Margherita is sooo good, you can thank me later.
Tip: They update the menu frequently, check their FB page here.

Farine
Half bakery half pizzeria, Farine serves a ridiculously great roman pizza squares on an industrial-style space I loved on a first sight. They have several options, coffee, country-style baked goods and even hand-made pastas, FTW.
Recommended: I had a Margherita pizza with a salad of the day. I'm still drooling.
Tip: They now serve breakfast from 8am to 11am on weekdays, you can't miss that!

Ps. I still have a few more spots, so stay tuned for this pizza guide 2.0
