“Excellent find”
Reviewed September 14, 2013

We went strolling on a Saturday evening, looking for an italian restaurant and stumbled on Il Matto. After haveing struggled to find during our trip to Canada a restaurant with the right combination of vibe, service and food quality we where pleasantly surprised with this place. Extremely gracious welcome (including from one the chefs in the open kitchen!) by the staff and we were quickly seated (no reservation). We had really tasty pasta and lovely desserts to follow. Very efficient, friendly but not rushed service throughout made for our most memorable dining experience so far in Canada. Highly recommended. (Oh, in a town where everthing seems to shut at 10, this place was still buzzing at 11 with people still arriving!)

“Three wonderful meals in Quebec City”
Reviewed September 12, 2013 via mobile

We had three wonderful dinners in Quebec City at Matto Restaurant. Maxim and Jerome were wonderful and the food was delicious. We highly recommend this restaurant. We were in Quebec for three days and ate there every night. We really enjoyed the food and the people who work there were very friendly. It is located in Old Quebec City.

“Our best meal in Quebec”
Reviewed September 10, 2013

With its big portions, fine decoration and lovely staff, this delicious italian restaurant offered us our best meal in Quebec.
It's located a few blocks outside the most turistic area, which was also nice.

“Yummy!”
Reviewed September 10, 2013

Il matto is a must visit in Quebec City. The fresh pasta are delicious and the restaurant we visited at the Hotel 71(another branch in St Foy) is very lively with a good busy atmosphere.
Our italian waiter was very professional and gave us a lot of info on the different dishes on the menu.
