THIS RESTAURANT HAS CHANGED NAMES Donatella Restaurant Review

: THIS RESTAURANT HAS CHANGED NAMES TO VILLA ROUGE. Simply red, unpretentious, and in the heart of Montreal’s Village, this combination lounge-bar-restaurant is Italian in name only, featuring just one pasta dish, risotto. Donatella’s Greek-Armenian owners dish out international fusion beneath soft, red halogen rendering the 65 (red) leatherette chairs and loveseats all the more funky. Appetizers include refreshing bruschetta, palm hearts, and smoked salmon, but the “soupes du jour,” particularly the vegetable creams, always hit the spot, day or night, hot or cold. Entrées run from hearty filet mignon brochettes, juicy filet of trout, to the specialty---grilled, baked pizza. Tiramisu is a staple, but for maximum pleasure dig into the generous, lightly crusted servings of crème brûlée. There is draft on tap, of which Rickers and Blue are tops. Take a window seat for two on Rue Ste. Catherine to ponder the scene, and be sure to check out the bubbling Neptune and Poseidon fountain at the back.
