Wine and dine your Valentine at the Ciccio Café.

by Elizabeth Davies

If you’re looking to take that special someone out for Valentine’s Day or any other day of the year, search no longer.

One of my favourite places to go for an intimate outing is the Ciccio Café, tucked on rue Claire Fontaine (between boul. René Lévesque and rue St-Jean). You cannot help but admire the perfectly lit antique brick wall, listen to the carefully selected background music, and savour the exquisite Italian cuisine with a French twist.

The owners, Bruce and Rosetta, along with their friendly discreet personnel, go out of their way to make sure you have a memorable evening.

Many patrons combine fine dining with a show at the Grand Théatre de Québec, which is just a stone’s throw away. Several celebrities have also chosen this quaint spot to enjoy a fine meal without all the hoopla.

 Although I have savoured all the dishes on the menu and have never been disappointed; this particular evening I had as an appetizer, the crispy Martabaks stuffed with pork and shrimp bathed in a sweet and sour sauce, a velvety cream of leek soup.

As the main course I had a mouth-watering  Bison flank steak – cooked exactly to taste covered with Port sauce, and for dessert, a choice of fine pastries.

Ciccio Café is quite acclaimed for the “Casserole de Fruits de Mer”(seafood dish) and the “Supreme de Saumon Frais Grenobloise”(fresh salmon).

There is an interesting selection of wine, but Ciccio also offers carafes of house red, white and rosé.

It is highly suggested that you make reservations at 418-525-6161. The address is 875 Claire Fontaine, Québec City.

Bon Apétit!
