Modavie Restaurant Review: The soft atmospheric lighting, romantic Old Montreal setting, and the live nightly jazz give this restaurant just the right tone. Contemplate crispy calamari, which comes with chipotle and marinara sauce; fresh filet mignon carpaccio with truffle oil and Parmesan shavings; or smoked duck with orange vinaigrette for starters. Follow with robust main courses such as rack of lamb with goat cheese, Dijon mustard and sesame, or grilled swordfish. Pastas range from traditional preparations such as penne pescatore to the creative, like pasta Sicilian, lush with Italian sausage and roasted garlic in a spicy tomato sauce spiked with Gorgonzola. The wine list offers selections from the world's premier grape growing regions, with a heavy accent on Italy and France. End the evening with apple pie, chocolate fondant or tiramisu.
