This restaurant is awesome. The staff was very accommodating for our big 10 person group that grew to 17 people. The meals were beautifully prepared and were delicious. Everyone seemed to enjoy their meals.

Dinner at II Matto was wonderful. The atmosphere is cozy and upscale but not pretentious at all. We had drinks at the bar and then moved to our table. We ordered the pasta and meatballs and fish/pasta dish and shared a salad. The meatballs were tender and delicious and the fish was light and mild. We cleaned our plates.THis was... More

Had dinner last Saturday night in a nice Italian restaurant. I liked the ambiance, the music, decoration and location. The food was good, our antipasto was delicious, the filet-mignon was cooked to perfection but my veal masala was not so good. The veal was over-cooked and hard to cut but they quickly offered to replace my meal which I appreciated... More

We had a great dinner at this restaurant. Be sure to book early. The place was bustling with a wonderful atmosphere, music, many servers/staff who were all very professional looking and very well suited to this location. We enjoyed bruschetta to start....huge portions, very tasty, perfect for three of us. We all had a drink with our main courses. My... More

We fled the tour group leader's recommendations and found Il Matto. It made the trip on a rainy day, worthwhile. It's a beautiful, tastefully decorated venue. It's menu is fill of recognizable and innovative dishes. We were not disappointed with our choices. The sauces were delicious. Il Matto is not inexpensive. It's worth every $.

I am giving the restaurant three stars for two different reasons. When we received the menu, I asked the server for some help in translating some items on the menu, as my understanding of French is minimal. When it came to basic Italian terms such as parmigian, the server looked at me and said" you do know that's Italian, don't... More

The staff were fabulous, we had reservations but I mistakenly thought I had made them for a table not the bar and they were kind enough to accommodate us at a table even though the room was buzzing and very full. The Cesar salad was great. We had the Matto pizza ( delicious) and two pastas. The Mushroom Parpadelle was... More

Went here on our first night in Quebec City and was not disappointed. We ended up splitting the antipasto platter...and it was pure heaven. I'm a huge fan of charcuterie, but this was next level tasty! There was a nice mix of cheeses, meats and veggies on the platter. Of course, this platter paired perfectly with a couple glasses of...
