Local Love!

It is always a good sign when you see locals dining in the restaurant. Ciccio Cafe is a great Italian restaurant that reminded us of home. The service was outstanding and we loved the food. One son deemed the veal parmigiana, 'excellent'. Another son really liked the eggplant parmigiana. I enjoyed... read more

Went there with the kids expecting a nice Italian meal. Service was awful and slow, food was basic and bland, and our table was stuck in such a ridiculously small area of the restaurant that we felt like eating in a closet. We like a slow dinner but this was downright unreasonable, we waited for over an hour between our... More

Once again this review is from the same people as the previous post. A quick look at the posts from these Trip Advisor members shows it is the same people.Unfortunately we posted a response to their post and we are paying the price. More

No idea how this place got 4 stars on Tripadvisor. Service was extremely slow and inefficient ; my teenager ordered pasta - didn't taste anything. Left it in his plate. I had lamb filet - I think... It was a sad little piece of meat, over cooked, about the size of my car key. My husband had the shrimps -... More

As chef-owner I have very high standards when it comes to the quality of what we serve, You mention the Filet of lamb, there are 2 filets per portion and are... More

The food was fantastic along with the staff. The calamari was perfect, escargot was delightful and the pasta delicious. The We will go back the next time we are in Quebec City.

I found this restaurant through Trip Advisor after doing a thorough search of options for a romantic dinner. It is on a little traveled side street near the Hilton and Quebec Parliment. It did not disappoint ! We had reservations and were seated by the front window in the corner. There are some twenty tables here with a small bar... More

I leave in Quebec city and I have eaten at Ciccio Cafe at least 50 times and the quality of food and service has always been very high. Over the years I brought friends, family and international visitors and all of them were unanimous to say that the value for money was exceptional. I hope the peoples from the Ciccio... More

This restaurant was a beautiful space but the food was not particularly good or authentic. When I ordered the Puttanesca, I noticed there were no anchovies and asked if they could include some since that is a basic part of the dish. I was told they didn't have any so I asked if they could at least give me mushrooms... More

On our vacation in Quebec City we discovered this out of the way restaurant and were so pleased. We had the calabrese salad, minestrone soup and the veal parmesana. All were so delicious with many layers of flavour. Highly recommend this place.

Walked by the place and noticed they served Italian food. Decided to enter for a one course dinner. Took the cooked to perfection linguine vongole rosso with a nice glass of wine and stayed a bit longer than anticipated. Very friendly service, outstanding food and drinks at a good price. A bit off the beaten path but highly recommended.
