Under the new slogan “Le quartier gourmand de Montreal”.

Organizers unveiled a new schedule of programming and initiatives that are now underway in Little Italy that focuses on this unique hub of culture, heritage and good food, such as the “pietonnisation” of the Jean Talon Market, the transformation of a portion of Dante Street into a mini drive-in theatre that will feature some of the finest motion pictures to come from Italy every Wednesday night (which will be presented with subtitles), and the “5a7 Musicaux” series that commences on July 22.

About Montreal’s Little Italy

Little Italy is a charming residential neighbourhood full of old-school cafes, pizzerias, Italian grocery stores and traditional bakeries. The Jean-Talon Market bustles year-round with stands selling flowers, produce and hot meals. Nearby, locals play bocce in Parc Dante. The hip Mile-Ex enclave offers artisanal coffee shops, chic restaurants and bars in industrial spaces.

Little Italy is centred on Saint Laurent Boulevard between Jean Talon Street and St. Zotique Street in the borough of Rosemont–La Petite-Patrie, south of Villeray and Jarry Park.

Little Italy is home to Italian Canadian-owned shops and restaurants, the Jean-Talon Market, as well as the Church of the Madonna della Difesa, built by Italian immigrants from the Campobasso area in Molise to commemorate the apparition of the Virgin Mary in La Difesa, an area of Campobasso.

Montreal has the second largest Italian population in Canada after Toronto. There are 260,345 people of Italian ancestry living within the Greater Montreal Area.
