Le Serpent

Italian in Old Montréal

Industrial style dominates at this renovated factory next to the Fonderie Darling art space, which draws a creative tech-industry crowd. The menu features an interesting mix of risottos and pastas (such as bucatini with pork confit) and a handful of well-executed seafood and meat dishes (veal fillet with ricotta tortellini), plus a changing daily special.

There's a long marble bar, white brick walls, and exposed beams and pipes snaking overhead.
