Welcome to Outremont
Montreal, October 4 2018 - A second Fiorellino arrives on Laurier Avenue. After two years on de la Gauchetière street, the Italian restaurant Fiorellino opens its second location in the historical space of the former Laurier BBQ.
Hoping to extend the legacy, the owners wish to recreate the once legendary atmosphere of Laurier BBQ. Italian cooking is all about simplicity and sharing. “We want our guests to feel at home, to experience the family-style of Italian cuisine. Food is what makes people happy!” (Massimo Lecas, owner).
A Tasty and Family-friendly Cuisine
You can find chef Erik Mandracchia in the kitchen, constantly reinventing classic Italian dishes: pizzas, pastas, antipasti, charcuteries, etc. everything is home-made! Offering a selection of classic desserts made daily by the pastry chef, a little something sweet to warm your heart.
Fiorellino; Italian [noun] def: A Rare Small Flower
A space and image in sync within its definition; friendly and soft
Design and Ambiance
The designer Jean-Guy Chabauty from Moderno, designs the second location by keeping its original flair. “My inspiration comes from Canadian homes: wooden walls and furniture and lots of natural daylight. However, we incorporated the Italian Fiorellino essence with the tiles found in traditional houses from Florence and Naples as well as the chandeliers. The wood-oven comforts the space with the warmth it creates and the delicious pizza scent”.
The restaurant can sit up to 100 guests on the first floor and up to 130 people on the second; the ideal space to host private parties (birthdays, weddings, reunions, etc). The restaurant is opened 7/7 from 12-11pm from Monday to Sunday and opened for brunches on weekends from 11am-3pm.
The owners of the Fiorellino family (Massimo Lecas, Francis Rodrigue, Angelo Leone et Robbie Pesut) are also behind a few other Montreal institutions such as the very successful Buonanotte, Porchetta restaurants and the on-going Jellyfish. Each owning over 25 years of experience in the hospitality industry, there’s no more secrets that can escape them!
