A perfect blend of
modern style and tradition
A voyage of sensations…
A meeting of beauty and emotion…
The romanticism of Klimt and his decorative art…
The charm of an attentive staff and fine cuisine reinvented…
It all awaits, between The Waiting and The Kiss…
“Nothing is ever lost or created. Everything is transformed.”
Antoine Lavoisier, chemist and philosopher
While refined materials are once again fashionable in European design, I wanted to make Quindici15 a showcase for the extraordinary beauty that emanates from bountiful raw metals. The marriage of copper, brass, quartz mirror and crystal glass creates a stark contrast with the immaculately white, streamlined look that is in vogue or the industrial trend adopted by the majority of urban businesses. The owners of Quindici15 wanted instead to create an interior inspired by the great classics.
Both halves of the space – an intimate decor on one side and a jazzy ambiance on the other – are united by rich Art Deco-style textures. Surrounded by the romantic charm of Gustave Klimt, which is strongly represented in my artistic approach, the eye is drawn to the beauty of the Murano glass chandeliers that seem to float within the space as if through an illusion on a stage, where the grandeur of the design naturally unfolds throughout.
We invite our guests to experience the wonderfully warm setting of Quindici15. Quindici, which means “fifteen” in Italian, is not only a reference to its address, 15 Bélanger Street, but also a tip to the French phrase coin d’ici or “neighbourhood corner” – a charming destination in the heart of Little Italy.

“I knew from the start of my training in table and wine service at the hotel management school (followed by studies in administration and law at university) that I had a great passion for the restaurant business. I have always been involved at some level, even when I’ve taken a break! I have over 20 years of experience working in bars and restaurants. In 2014, my uncle Yves Langelier, who believed in me, offered me this opportunity to realize my dream of owning my own restaurant.
“Of course, my professional path can clearly be felt at Quindici15. Rigorous attention to detail, respect for ingredients as well as premium quality food – in other words, you’ll enjoy an experience like no other at Quindici15. You’ll feel like you’ve come home!”

“I was born and raised in Montreal, by Sicilian parents. I was fortunate to have my grandmother living with us. At a very young age, she influenced me with her cooking and passion for food. I can still remember being as young as four years old and helping her cook.
“In my early twenties, I travelled all over Italy, learning about the importance of quality ingredients and how to respect them without getting too complicated.”
