If you live in the West Island and you have a date who loves Italian food and who is easily impressed by a high end menu ($$$$$) I suggest you go and experience Restaurant La Verita in the heart of Dollard Des Ormeaux's Marche De L'ouest...
I heard about them few years back from a friend who was raving about the place. My mother in law loves Italian food. When the place got suggested again by my sister in law, we have decided to treat my mother in law for her birthday.
So off we went last night without any reservations around 7pm on a Friday night. We took a chance.
The friendly and polite staff seated us. They brought us eact the menu.
The web site does not have any menu on line. Their pasta dishes are between $19.00 and $25.00. They include soup or salad.
They brought us a small plate of warm focaccia bread. It had sun dried tomatoes and few black olives on the side. Later on they brought the bread which was yummy and warm.
The soup last night was a cream of pea soup with subtle hints of mint.
I was very happy that I opted for their lobster ravioli dish with a light creamy sauce. My dish was $24.00 and it was tasty.
When the time came for desert, our friendly waiter made a menu presentation on a tablet. He indicated that their signature desert is Mascarpone cheese cake.
If you ever to this restaurant, I strongly suggest you to keep space for their deserts. It will be the best part of your dining experience.
My hat off to their pastry chef.
Apple pie with vanilla ice cream.
Espresso crème brule..
And voila their delicious mascarpone cheese cake.
