Impasto

Impasto is an Italian restaurant specializing in homemade Italian cuisine located in the heart of Montreal’s Little Italy along Dante Street. Most of their meals, including their pasta and gnocchi are all made in-house, allowing for a truly authentic Italian culinary experience. The influence of co-owners chefs Stefano Faita, a television personality and bestselling cookbook author and Michele Forgione, an experienced head chef at several restaurants throughout Montreal, has allowed Impasto to become a go-to for modern Italian food in the city.

He has published three bestselling cookbooks and participates in numerous television shows. You can currently see him on CBC’s In the kitchen or on TVA’s Al Dante. Impasto is his first restaurant.

MICHELE FORGIONE

With his experience as head chef of several restaurants in the city, most recently Osteria Venti, Michele Forgione, who is also a pastry chef, opens his first restaurant in collaboration with Stefano. He takes pride in developing a menu full of the best specialties Italian cuisine has to offer.
