Stick to cosmos next door. Server was more occupied with her bottle count at the bar then a new customer walking in. When she was bothered to hand me their trendy clip board menu, I was overwhelmed by the choices. Don't bother asking for a recommendation or guidance, I'll save the poor server the hassle of acknowledging and responding to a question and say every thing is good (just imagine a heavy exhale while you read that).
I took a chance on the pesto pasta, and found out why this place is called olio. Seems they add oil to the tins of pesto sauce (defiantly from a food distributer, hints if Sysco but it could be GFS) and then do the obligatory drizzle of more olio before serving (very trendy these days).

As an English speaking visitor I found the service to be great. The service staff seemed more than happy to speak English,even though I can not attempt French. We had four appetizers (tapas) and a main and everything was delicious. The food on the plate looks like a painting. Each plate is maticulously prepared to perfection and of photogenic quality. The pesto salmon steak with pasta was by far the best dish I've ever ordered in a restaurant. The Parmesan fondue is also to die for. Great job done by Olio for a non French speaking tourist. I will be recommending this resto to anyone and everyone I ever hear coming to Quebec City. Bon appetit!!
