“Italian in Quebec”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2013

Across the street from aux Anciens Canadiens is a very good Italian restaurant with a French flavor. The interior walls are stripped down to the original brick and stone. The atmosphere is somewhat modern with jazz playing in the background. One of the meals I had was a risotto with duck confit, dried cranberries, and goat cheese. The waiter informed me that gouda cheese was used that evening. It was delicious as well as the french onion soup -- lots of cheese in it. The wait staff is very helpful and courteous. However, some of the tables are in dark areas and a flashlight to see the menu would be helpful. On my bi-annual visits to Quebec I always make a point to eat here during my stay.

“Good lunch menu”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2013 via mobile

We had lunch twice and the lunch menu was quite reasonable for Quebec city. It included soup or salad, sandwich and dessert. They also had beer and wine specials for lunch.

“French/Italian Cuisine”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2013

My husband and I along with another couple ate here one of the nights we were in Quebec City. We sat at a window table and found the service to be friendly and attentive. We all ordered pasta dishes which were good but not great. However the wine was excellent. The Caprese salad was very interesting in it's presentation but not very tasty. The food was pricey, but that is pretty much the case in Quebec City. Having traveled in France and Italy I found the food to be somewhat disappointing. However we thought our waitress was great and she even told us a great place to go for after dinner drinks....Savini on the Grande Alle.

“Great food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013

Conti Caffe is a trendy restaurant that is very popular with locals as well as tourists. It is a very energetic place but not loud. Food is a French-Italian fusion that was very good. The restaurant was very busy, yet our service was prompt and friendly. We would recommend this restaurant

“Fun little cafe”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013

The cafe was full to overflowing and we were lucky to get a table. It is not a place to sit and savour your food. It was very noisy and conversation was difficult because of all the hubbub but good fun and we had an enjoyable meal. I had the spaghetti carbonara with a glass of prosecco and my husband the risotto with a beer. We only wanted a light meal so skipped dessert. We would have liked another drink but unfortunately the servers were few and far between. Feeling hot and sticky, because it was a sultry night and the tables were crammed together with only fans to cool, we decided to search out a bar with air conditioning.
