Have been going there for over 4 years now and the food is as amazing as in the beginning. They stick to their recycle-based decoration and it gives the restaurant a unique charm.
The chef has an amazing tenor voice which greatly adds to the overall ambience. HE even came over to sing me Happy Birthday.
Great wine selection

Nice ambience, nice staff, delicious food and cocktails (I had the amaretto sour, delicious). The portions are really generous. The chef sang at some point during the night, and even came to our table to now how was our experience in his restaurant. Lovely!

This place has everything! Great food, nice ambiance, and a chef who sings opera for you while you eat, with a most amazing tenor voice. The soup was squash puréed so smoothly it was amazing. My husband had beef scoter which was like brisket that melted in your mouth. The gnocchi and the ravioli were both superb. I highly recommend this lovely restaurant. It’s also very easy to walk there from Metro Beaubien.

This is a great neighborhood spot, unpretentious classic Italian dishes. Great portions perfect for sharing a few plates among friends. Great wine list (no longer BYOB). It's really special that the chef comes out and greets you, asks about your dinner experience and sings some beautiful Italian opera.

La perfection! Une soirée mémorable, un gros merci à Stefano, notre fantastique serveur, qui nous a si bien expliqué et conseillé, ce fut tellement bien! Le chef aussi qui vient chanter un petit air d'opéra, puis vient nous jaser un brin : extrêmement sympathique et on se serait cru en Italie, merveilleux, merci encore et c'est certain qu'on revient, consensus absolu de notre petit groupe de 4!

Il Bazzali was a wonderful experience! The food was delicious, the service also and the chef sings Opera occasionally. He comes out of the kitchen and sings Opera with his phenomenal voice! It was truly an experience that everyone should try at least once! The pizza was great and I had the seafood gluten-free pasta which was delicious! We enjoyed it all! The ambiance was also a throwback to my parents' Italian home and to the houses in Italy. Beautiful!! Thank you!!

We were a group of 4. Experienced a delicious main course of the fresh ravioli alla parmigiana. Butternut soup was lukewarm. Enjoyed the warm and crusty bread. Waiter wasn't the friendliest and even a bit rude, saying things like I told you earlier or look on the menu! and annoyed that I asked him for extra plate. The chef's salad (spinach, corn, lemon) was bland and so was the chocolate mousse with blueberries. It mentions on FB page that Davide sings from Wednesday to Sunday, although we were there for 2.5 hours, he never sang! We asked and said he was too busy rushing with orders and would eventually sing.
