Despite being a simple dish, good pasta in a restaurant is harder to come by than you’d think. Go to the wrong place, and you get soft, overcooked noodles and ketchup sauce.

Luckily, many members of Montreal’s Italian community and passionate food scene have made it a point to raise the bar for quality here. And as a result, this city holds a multitude of good pasta places that you should definitely consider trying.

Here are a few of our favourites.
