Severely crowded, food was plain. $25 for a pesto pasta, 2 shrimp and 4 little round balls of what was supposed to be scallops. The waitress was nice but either she or someone else ended up putting our left over pasta in a paper box with holes in it. Why? But then others were getting their left overs in an aluminum dish. The place was far too small for so many tables. Cute atmosphere and restaurant

We visited this restaurant 2 nights in a row. We hadn't expected to but we found that we had waited too late for another restaurant that was suggested so we opted to wait for the opening at Corneli because it was right around the corner from where we were staying in Montreal. The first night my wife had a shrimp dish that she said was delicious. I had the veal parm and it was the very best I have ever had! The second night my wife got a different veal dish, I believe a marsala sauced veal. I decided to go with the veal parm again because it was soooooo good.

Would definitely eat there again.....Delicious!!!

Excellent souper dans un charmant restaurant. Les pâtes que nous avons mangé étaient fraîches et savoureuses! Leur cannoli est un incontournable!

Food was excellent as usual , kitchen made an error with our orders but the waiter made up for it by the quality of his service and the restaurant offered us a complimentary drink to make up for it. The lamb was so good, I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend!

Fausse publicité sur Facebook. Annonce des mojitos gratuits de 5@9 pour les dames mais ce n'est qu'à l'intérieur du restaurant et non sur la terrasse. J'ai fait une réservation et le gérant n'est pas venu me voir pour discuter de la promotion. Nous avons dus être sur la terrasse et n'avons pas reçu de mojitos.

De plus, le service était très mauvais. Notre serveur a pris beaucoup trop de temps à prendre notre commande et c'était souvent impossible de l'avoir à notre table.

Dernièrement, j'ai pris une spécialité de la maison, les linguinis aux fruits de mer, et ce n'était pas frais et manquait d'assaisonnement.

I came here before and it was a good place. So, I came here again with friends. Unfortunately, none of us got impressed. They took 1 hour to bring our food and another half an hour to bring our cheque. Food was ok but the service needs a serious improvement.

Best bet are pizzas and pastas.
Specialty plates missed the mark in flavour.
Great selection of drinks!

I have never been to Corneli before but I suspect it was exceptionally busy due to the F1 race and tourists. Nevertheless, service was efficient. The linguini Vongole was tasty, with a generous amount of clams, but I wish there had been a bit more sauce. The pasta was perfectly cooked.

Expensive below average. Overcooked pasta in blend sauce and boring wine list. The place is alive and loud over the weekend, but even if the restaurant is jam packed, the kitchen will close even 15min before time.
Waitress is extremely courteous, but very forgetful. To me it’s a “been there, done that” kinda a place.

Great Italian restaurant... Probably the best I tried in Montreal so far! Everything was on point. The pizzas/pastas were good, the lamb shank was amazing and the calamaris were the best my friends and I ever ate!
The staff was super welcoming and effective! The decor is modern and the ambiance is very pleasant!
I definitely recommand Corneli and can’t wait to go back to try other items from their varied and delicious menu!

We were a group of 4. We had all ordered appetizers. My appetizer never came because the waiter forgot it. Fair enough, this can happen. As an entree, I chose the famous lasagna (as depicted on the menu; the recipe is still the same since 1960). Once it came, the melted cheese on the top of the lasagna was completely burnt and was black. I told the waiter and he told me that's what the recipe is and that is what it is supposed to look like. I have a hard time believing that. He offered to give me a new lasagna with no cheese on top, but that meant waiting another 20 min. I declined and just removed the whole top of the lasagna. Needless to say that this was not the best culinary experience I have had in Montreal.

Valentines Day dinner was nice,
Ambience was beautiful, i liked the noise, you could have a conversation with the person across you and actually be able to hear them.
Appetizer and entree was great, litchi sangria was too die for. Not impressed with the tiramisu tho.
All in all great experience, would go back.

Le restaurant était somme toute bien. Nous avons bien mangé, le service était correct (mais place à l’amélioration). C’était un peu bruyant à ce temps-ci de l’année (party de Noël, etc.). Le seul « hic » est que le restaurant n’a jamais trouvé la réservation que j’avais faite...
