Love Me Tenzer’s Old Port discovery!
by Avi Tenzer….
Usually when I think of Italian food the first thing that will come up to my mind is little Italy. Today I made an amazing discovery of delicious food; I found the best pizza in Montreal at FCO di Fiumicino on Viger right next to Square Victoria. It has a good selection of pizza that can be eaten on site or taken to the office to make all your coworkers jealous. This restaurant is owned by a very charming man called Dino which I met 10 years ago at Milos. Even after all that time he remembered me (who can forget me really).
I went with my friend for lunch and we shared a mushroom and meat pizza, a cheese with onions pizza and a zucchini pizza. We both agreed that our favorite was the mushroom pizza with meat (maybe it was magic). After we finished the pizzas Dino offered us some of his homemade gelato which was the best gelato I had ever had, even better than ones I’ve had in Italy. I would strongly recommend any restaurant to buy his gelato and offer it to their customers.
Next door to FCO Dino owns another restaurant called Officina which I haven’t tried yet but it is a place where you pick up food and bring it home for dinner. Just by walking in and smelling the homemade Italian food is enough to make your mouth water. Amazing discoveries, from now on, less Adonis, more Officina.
This is my newest discovery in Old Montreal.
