We loved the décor, the environment, very comfortable and the service was perfect with very friendly staff. The food was very good, didn't let us down, but it missed that little extra to get a 5* rating. We did were somewhat disappointed with the amount the restaurant charged for wine. Easily 4x the price for some bottles, and that kind of made us think "seriously? charge me 2x the price, I don't mind, but 4x?". We would return, but we're not sure we would feel comfortable paying that much for wine again.

We started with a salmon tartare and a caprese salad. Both very delicious. As a nain dush, I had the papardelle with wild mushrooms and truffle oil and my father fettucini al frutti di mare. Both very tasty and highly recommendable.
The excellent food is complemented with a great atmosphere and an outstanding service.

We choose Matto 71 after many of our friends went there for dinner. We really enjoyed the superb location, the great staff and the amazing food served there. Wow! Everything was so delicious that we plan to get back there when back to Quebec City.

Located in Lower Town in Hotel 17 close to the Musee de la Civilisation. We found it a bit expensive ($240 with tip for 3 people including 3 glasses of wine, appetizers, mains and desserts) but the food and service were both very good. Very busy and quite noisy. Not a place for a quiet dinner.

Came here with our family, the RESTAURANT has an amazing location a beautiful setting, and is generally packed with people.

The menu is simple, with a lot of good Italian choices. The ingredients are fresh however for some reason the chef really likes a lot of pepper. Which is sprinkled throughout all the dishes. If there wasn’t for the excess amount of pepper this would’ve been a great choice! And a 5 Star.

I highly recommend whatever you order to request much less pepper in your dish.

The choice of wine was reasonable, and the service was excellent!
