Italian
The menu, spearheaded by Executive Chef Giovanni Vella and Chef Matthew Bell of celebrated eatery BEVO Bar + Pizzeria, showcases the unique culinary flare of Italy with dishes focused on fresh, seasonal ingredients, and specialty cured meats. Unlike its sister concept, BEVO – known for its authentic wood-burning pizza oven, Jacopo offers guests homemade pasta, fresh vegetables, roasted meats in a stone oven, roman lamb, and much more.. Diners can also enjoy freshly baked in-house focaccia bread and homemade charcuterie and salumi, cured on display in a controlled drying chamber. It doesn’t get more authentic than this!

Un brunch délicieux, un décor agréable et un service hors pair, voilà autant de raisons pour lesquelles nous avons adoré notre passage au Jacopo. Notre serveuse, Alizée, était particulièrement avenante et enthousiaste, et tout le personnel était aux petits soins avec nous. Nous y retournerons sans doute.

This was one of my most pleasant dining experiences ever. Jacopo hits the nail on the head with everything.

I can be "particular" when it comes to ambiance, comfortable seating, temperature, lighting, noise, music and courteous service. Often food is the least important thing to me.

Jacopo had it all! I seriously give the place a 10/10, and I think that may be a first.

Excellente nourriture, tres bonne proportion, savoureux, tres beau décor, toilettes propres. Dans le contexte du happening gourmand le brunch à 2 services pour 17$ valait vraiment la peine. Seul petit point à améliorer, il faudrait s'assurer que la serveuse vienne voir ses clients pour passer la commande. Elle pensait qu'on n'etait pas prête puisqu'on discutait. J'ai dû lui demander venir nous voir , car on a attendu longuement. Sinon, pour le restant du repas, elle est venue aux bons moments et était très gentille.

Tried the Happening Gourmand menu (cuttlefish soup, polpo, choco cake). good food but polpo was excellent - cooked just right, tender, tasty but subtle. The bread is so good that I got a second serving when offered one. Service was excellent.

Went for brunch and had the avocado toast which was guacamole on bread with 2 poached eggs on top and potatoes on the side. I also paid extra for black cod. The guacamole tasted bitter like the pre-maid ones and it was very cold which cooled the eggs and the bread. Also ordering avocado toasts you expect mashed avocado not guacamole with tomatoes and onions. The fish was very cold and soggy, it was actually smoked cod but it felt like it was previously frozen. Overall very average for the price, also considering I could have easily done it better at home. The place looks super nice, the staff is super nice but the food is very disappointing.

We came here for Happening Gourmand since we had never tried this restaurant before. I was immediately taken in by the decor. It's warm and chic with both a modern yet classic look. We had fantastic service and were well taken care of by our waiter. The food was delicious. I would definitely suggest this place for a date.

Une très belle soirée! Il faisait un peu froid au 2e étage mais il faisait très froid à l'extérieur aussi. Bon service mais c'était par moment, un peu lent puiqu'il semblait y avoir qu'un serveur pour tous le 2e étage qui était également le barman.

Excellent brunch with an italian touch. Very original menu and great food! Service was also excellent, especially taking in consideration that we had 3 babies with us, which left a little mess on and below the table! thank you to the Jacopo team!

Nous sommes déçu de notre expérience du 31 décembre. Nous avons l'habitude de fêter le 31 décembre au restaurant, et c'est la 1ere fois que nous tombons sur un restaurant avec aussi peu d'ambiance festive. Il n'y a même pas eu de décompte à minuit. Sur le site il parlait d'animation faite par un dj et nous n'avons rien vue de cela. De plus les serveurs semblaient perdus.

Bonjour Jomey, Navré d'entendre que votre expérience n'étais pas a la hauteur de vos attentes. Nous avions bel et bien un DJ sur place au jour de l'an, il était positionné au 2e étage du restaurant. Désolé pour la confusion. Servir de la nourriture authentique italienne avec un service personnalisé est notre priorité au Jacopo. Merci pour vos commentaires, nous essayions constamment de s'améliorer. Merci, Mathias Lopez Directeur Général

My second time at this restaurant and the food was not good. Lacks flavour and is not authentic. We celebrated NYE there and will never do it again. Service was super slow, not enough staff and food was not great. Will never go back to this restaurant again.

The service was fantastic and food, good but not wow.
It is a pretty restaurant but the lighting needs to be dimmed in order to create a warmer ambiance.
I would go again!

Friendly servers, but slow service all night long. The entrees were not very flavorful. The cacio e pepe tasted heavily of sharp cheese, perhaps a mistake, but not great. Excellent cocktail menu and a solid Italian only wine list. Great location too. Overall, I won’t be back.

Première visite du Jacopo à l’occasion de Noël, ma compagne et moi avons été littéralement bluffés. Le menu de fête était raffiné et extrêmement bon.
Mention spéciale pour le barman, qui nous a fait deux cocktails extraordinaires. Je recommande absolument pour les fêtes, c’est un régal!!!!!

Located in the heart of old Montreal on Place Jacques-Cartier. It's a very beautiful restaurant. Amazingly decorated, with combination of rustic and elegant feel. The hostess and our waitress both were amiable, helpful and great servers. I started with a very delicious Bellini. My sister had a cappuccino which was perfect. It was creamy and didn't need anything extra like sugar. I started with assorted Italian biscuits, almonds and ginger flavor. It was so good, I couldn't stop making yummy noise. Then I had a avocado toast with bruschetta garnish and poached eggs with side potatoes. Amazing and tasty dish except potatoes were average. My sister loved her gnocchis with tomato sauce. I tried a piece from her, and yes it was really good. Perfectly cooked both pasta and sauce. I ended my brunch with a nice warm English Breakfast tea. Highly recommended. Can't wait to go back for lunch and dinner.

We had a really nice evening. Place was really quiet, so our LOVELY waiter, Etienne, was cut early, at which point we received somewhat indifferent service from the manager. Food was AMAZING, and Etienne’s recommendations, pacing of our meal, including the wine, were spot-on. The only disappointment was the dessert, an orange olive oil cake which tasted like it had been in the fridge for a year.

Bonne table, rien d'extraordinaire dans les goûts et choix des produits.
Niveau sonore trop élevé et les tables sont assez serrées, service ok.
Le prix pour Montréal à Table est en accord avec la carte proposée.
