“Exceeded expectations”
Reviewed May 28, 2014 via mobile

I am surprised by the previous negative reviews for Bello. When visiting QC I had promised myself that I would only eat at French restaurants. However having arrived late in the evening and looking for somewhere to eat close by to the Le Chateau Frontenec where I was staying found Bello. It was reasonably priced and a good looking restaurant. The waitstaff were very friendly and service excellent. Mostly surprising was the food that exceeded my expectations. The duck pizza with caramelised onions was absolutely delicious and the duck and foie gras risotto was nothing like I have had or tasted before. The apple pie dessert was also a hit. Outstanding!I wish I was dining earlier in the evening so that I could have stayed longer to sample more deliciousness!

“Good restaurants are like good theater”
Reviewed May 26, 2014

Loved this restaurant in Old Quebec City. Glitzy but in a good way with stylish young people providing fabulous service. Italian food ranges from pizza to risotto - the house specialty risotto used chianti and braised veal cheeks should be eaten very slowly to savor every bite. On the moderate to expensive side for Q.C. but worth every penny,

“fat and greasy”
Reviewed May 25, 2014

One of the worst restaurant experiences of my life. Very nice decor and pretty decent bread is all I can say for the positives. The risotto was barely edible only because it was drenched in butter. The same thing with my mom's linguini. Extremely small portion size for the price. Not at all a true Italian place. Could easily make the same thing at home.

“Trendy, but great food.”
Reviewed May 24, 2014

Very stylish decor and all serving staff dressed in black, but the overly trendy feel did not apply to the food, which was great. The pizzas were superb, thin crust, crisp on the edge, perfect in the centre. Toppings were fresh and plentiful. Great wine list too. Service was good, and not too frenetic. Not cheap, but worth it.

“great food, service, easy to walk to”
Reviewed May 24, 2014 via mobile

Right next door to Clos St Louis Hotel and up the street from the Chateau Frontenac. Definitely make reservations. Great service, great food, expensive but more than worth it.
