Need to Know…from Ross Munro of PEI Culinary Adventures: “Ok, here it is. Plain and simple, Michele Forgione rocks the house, our house, your house, every house. Pure genius. He is an ode to another era of chefs, while being ahead of his time. His simplicity gets him in hot water with critics (not sure why), but his technique is sublime and in your face at the same time. He can do ANYTHING he wants to and it doesn't reach the plates or customers until its perfection. And to top it off ... the proof is when he's not around and the food is still beyond top shelf. He and the entire crew have it locked down solid. Bravo!

Caroline Marchand of Dcouverteculinaire says:A trip in Italy in the Little Italy in Montreal. Simple Italian dishes, well prepared and tasty.”
