Description: Sultry red, green and orange hues are part of the welcoming décor of this restaurant which carries you for a few hours to the wonderful Italy of music and laughter. In winter, our lovers can bask in an atmosphere warmed by two beautiful fireplaces. But the uniqueness of the decor rests primarily on the fascinating collection of more than 4,000 bottles of every shape and size from every corner of the Earth.

“Atmosphere, food, music”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

My favorite restaurant is this wonderful italian place located in the heart of Quebec City. The atmosphere is warm and noisy, the décor is crowded and creative, the food is delightful, the service is impressive and, if you are lucky, somebody might sing a verse or two of OH SOLE MIO at your table, accompagnied by an accordion. Have not been there in a while but miss it!

“Friendly atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2012

We had fun at the Parmsean. The food is very good. They do not have children's menus but offer most dishes at half price for them.
Little bit expensive.

“Good Wine”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2012

Overall decent food, the staff could have been friendlier. Green lasagna was good but seemed slimy and rich. I would go for the experience and the price was right. Great wine selection.

“Entertaining, but . . .”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

Just too "old school". Unfortunately, the Fondu Parmesan was overcooked! Their famed food!! VERY outgoing staff though - service was very good. Owner a charmer and very friendly.

When something is not right, you should tell the Maitre D' right away. His main duty is to make people satisfied thus happy. A happy customer comes back. He would have replaced your fondue. Thank you for your comments. We shall use them at our regular meetings with our personnel.

“Amazing Pasta”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2012 via mobile

The only reason they did not get all 5's was for the price of the meals. Luckily you get to expect this while in Quebec City. Everything else was excellent, was there for lunch and they did not rush me at all. Even though they had a really busy lunch crowd.
