Open only for delivery and take out

Our dining room and terrace remains closed for the time being. With the physical distancing measures we believe that it would not be effective or safe given the size of our restaurant and the entrances to the building. As usual we would always be happy to serve you either for take out or delivery.

To better serve our customers, our delivery area was enlarged; Please see our delivery zone map here (hotlink the delivery page).

We have carefully redesigned the logistics of our kitchen and our interactions with customers in order to respect social distancing measures to ensure the safety of our customers and our staff. We thank you in advance for your patience and understanding if the pace of our operations is affected by these measures. The health and safety of our customers, staff and families is paramount.

To ensure distancing measures, we have reconfigured the kitchen, reorganized our delivery and take-out operations and reduced our staff. The following changes have been made to our service protocols:

Our opening hours as well as our menu choice have been changed. We invite you to visit the website for updates on our menu and opening hours. Due to reduced staff, please keep in mind that some items on our menu may only be available in limited quantities each day.

We have also revised our procedure for take out orders: we will be able to serve our customers directly through the garage door which opens onto the sidewalk. We will accept the following payments: Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Debit or cash.

Rest assured that all members of our team are equipped with adequate sanitary equipment and that our kitchen and service counter are carefully cleaned and disinfected.

We thank you for trusting Il Focolaio restaurant and we are happy to be able to serve you and your family!

Since 1984 Il Focolaio has been treating our guests to a wood-burning oven pizza that shares flavours of Italy and the influence of Montreal. Il Focolaio (fireplace in Italian) depicts the maple wood burning oven where each and every one of our delicious pizzas are cooked. Our "Focolaio", as in the old country, not only brings forth the food but also becomes the gathering place for our guests who like family, always feel welcomed and right at home.

Our recipe is simple, serving up pizza using ingredients made fresh daily that only a true pizzaiolo would use, such as extra virgin olive oil, top quality tomatoes and only the freshest ingredients, all prepared with passion and a love for cooking to bring you the end result that you will never forget.

We invite you to come and enjoy the taste of Italy with a nice glass of wine from our wine list. Enjoy it all on our terrace in the middle of downtown during the summer months, or in our inviting dining room with your friends and family.

We are looking forward to serving you, Buon Appetito!
