Both contemporary New York-style and classic Italian eateries are making their mark in the city’s dining scene. At La Trattoria in St. Boniface, Italy-trained Chef/owner Chris Tascona delivers traditionally prepared favourites, like fall-off-the-bone grilled lamb chops marinated in fragrant garlic and mint. 271 Provencher Blvd, 233-5318.

Italy-trained Chef/owner Chris Tascona delivers masterfully prepared Italian classics at La Trattoria. Grilled lamb chops marinated in garlic and mint, and amaretti pear crisp are just a few of the mouth-watering dishes that capture the flavours of Italy. Bonus: the menu and staff are fully bilingual in French and English, a nod to the restaurant’s French-Canadian St. Boniface neighbourhood. 271 Provencher Blvd, 233-5318, Map 1: 0-4.
