Well-Liked North Shore Italian Resto Makes a Move on Laval

Samuel Joubert/Piatti Pizzeria

The improvement in Laval’s dining options continues as the owner of Rosemère restaurant Piatti has opened up a pizzeria near the junction of highways 440 and 125.

Taking its name from the ten-year-old North Shore original, Piatti Pizzeria is a little smaller, with owner Gianpiero Morgia telling Eater it’ll be a little more casual, yet still trendy.

Given the name, pizza is a key offering, cooked Neapolitan style in a wood-fired oven imported from Italy — one prime option is the porchetta pizza with cocciocavallo cheese and confit onions. But it’s not the sole offering — while it will have more pizza than the original, some classic-leaning pasta dishes are available (see: ravioli with braised beef oxtail and burrata), alongside charcuteries and cheese, and some meatier options. Take the Bistecca alla Fiorentina: made for sharing, it’s 45 ounces of Porterhouse.

Given Morgia’s trendy descriptor, it’s fitting that the restaurant was designed by the Gauley Brothers (see also: Foiegwa and the Café St-Henri HQ in Villeray). Inside, it has a muted modern feel with a few splashes of colour (check those green bar stools), and plenty of booth and banquette seating in a 96-seat space. Take a peek.
