Known as “Québec City’s first supermarket”, when Épicerie Roset opened in 1947 it set itself apart from the “general store” concept that was popular at the time. Located on busy Maguire Avenue in the heart of the Sillery neighbourhood of Québec City, Roset is a full-service grocery store, which offers its customers a wide variety of fine cheeses, meats, and other specialty products many of which are directly imported from Italy. Managing to remain family owned since the beginning, Épicerie Roset has now become an institution in Québec City known for its quality products and excellent service.
When was the last time you had dinner in an Italian restaurant in Canada and you thought you were dining in Italy? That’s exactly how “Ospitalità Italiana Certified”restaurants want you to feel when you visit their fine dining establishments.
Ospitalità Italiana is an official certification from Unioncamere, Italy’s federation of local Chambers of Commerce and Industry, that tells you that the food you are enjoying is unquestionably Italian: products are authentic, ingredients genuine and recipes true to the thousand year history of Italian cuisine.

In addition, Montréal boasts a fabulous cooking school ITHQ where young aspiring chefs learn Italian technic and Italian traditional recipes from the masters.
So the next time you make reservations for an Italian dinner in a Montreal restaurant, ask if they’ve received the Ospitalità Italiana seal of approval. You will enjoy the true Italian taste.
