Alto in the McGill Ghetto is a go-to spot for late-night student sustenance. Ever since its inception in 1987, it’s been a beloved fixture for OG, Montreal-style pizza as well as burgers, poutine, and pizzaghetti (don’t knock it ‘til you try it). Despite facing adversity when a nearby fire razed the original location in 2016, they rebuilt, supported by a loyal community. Now, Alto stands proud, maintaining its energetic atmosphere.
