    Besides the noisy table next to us, love this place and will return. Pasta pomodoro was just insanely delicious! Salad was suprisingly very very good.

    Dinner ended up taking 3 hours. The waiter completely forgot about us. Our table had to request everything, incl asking for water and 45 min in asking if we can order yet. When they eventually brought the food out, it all came out at diff times. 2 of us were last and awkwardly ate our salmon and steak a full 10 min after everyone else had finished their pasta. When we ordered we had questions about the menu and the waiter did not know the answers. We ordered a side dish for the steak that never came. My salmon was plated upside down with the greasy skin facing up (not a huge offense, but really?) Finally we paid and server was visibly upset about getting multiple credit cards to split the bill. Worst service I have ever had in the area!

    We went early with a large group of 8 people and were immediately seated at a large table in a quiet corner of this cosy neighborhood restaurant. The waiter Sylvestri was unhurried and helpful. We had wonderful, fresh food and were able to enjoy every course without any rush or pressure. Everything was delicious.

    Generally this restaurant has been a really positive experience.The food is good and the atmosphere congenial.however we were there on the Memorial Day weekend and notonly had the prices increased which actually was ok as they were underpriced before bot the quality of the food had gone down.The meat and cheese plate which always has been quite authentic in quality and variety was a hodgepodge of hard cheese and greasy meat without the proper condiments.Hopefully this was just a fluke

    I was so excited to arrange a dinner at Abbotegga and was so disappointed. The service is despicable! Once we were seated we waited 15 mins for menus. I then had to ask for the wine list twice and the man responded to me as if I was bothering him. It took 40 minutes to get wine glasses and the wine and we were also told that half the wine listed they didn't even have. We wanted to but more bottles but left for a bar because of how utterly ridiculous the service was. I will be sure to spread the word of how horrible this establishment is.

    I once ate here for a weekend lunch when it was known as Quinto Quarto. I frankly liked the decor then better as the walls were black (or dark brown) and with little decoration. Still, it's a cozy little restaurant. I had amatriciana and lamb ribs; both were good. The ribs were tender and very richly seasoned - a bit too much for my taste, but quite good. Only drawback was that it was way too noisy for my taste.

    Dinner sat night was a real pleasure. Eggplant parm app was terrific. Meatball app was special. Grilled octopus was perfect entree and the pasta with pecorino and black pepper was perfect. Topped off by ricotta cheesecake for desert. A real treat all around. Wines by the glass were very good. All in all a very nice surprise. Will be back soon.

  • Too bad
    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 12/13/2013
    First time I went, it was fine. Good food, relatively good service although it was busy. Second and definitely last time, the service was bizarrely poor. We we the only ones there save two lone tables which had already been served, but the wait staff, literally standing a yard or do away, were too busy talking to each other to bother coming over. Weasel eye contact at least twice, nodded our heads etc, but no service. Even after calling out politely, no one came for quite a while. And the food was poor. Salad was cold and tasteless. Filled with tough kale. Salmon ok but again on a bed of iron like kale. Pasta was crude.

    We had a weird experience at this restaurant. We made a reservation for 5:30 so we could get to a show, but unlike many restaurants in NYC this place was unclear on the concept. We waited for an hour while the staff had their evening meal before we were served anything to eat. When we left at 7:15 we were still the only customers in the place. The food was good, though, when it finally came.

    Made a reservation for a Friday night for a large company event. The service was fantastic, getting us seated immediately at our reserved time with a table big enough for all of us. The wine menu was great, albeit a little on the pricey side. Food was also delicious - no complaints from the group and everyone completely devoured the shared appetizers. The restaurant is also in a great neighborhood for post-dinner social options.

    Booked a reservation for 15 ppl for a pre-marathon Carb-Load / send off dinner - staff was extremely accommodating and did a great job handling our group. They recommended a prix-fixe (sounded like a great deal for $40 w/out wine, $50 w/wine) - but it was an early dinner so most ppl weren't very hungry and we passed on that deal and ordered a la carte. Meals all came out at the same time (which is impressive for a group of that size!) and food was great! Although it's not a huge space, they had a big table setup for us and were incredibly accommodating. We kind of took over the place when we got there b/c it wasn't very busy and our group was large, but most ppl there didn't seem to mind.

    We were in a hurry to make an 8:15 curtain, so we didn't have time for a full dinner, but we both had excellent pasta. Wine was good -- we had an unusual Sicilian white. I still don't think it should be spelled spaghetto Carbonara on the menu despite the waiter's insistence that spaghetti and spaghetto are interchangeable. Steffan Aletti

    Service was terrible. We ordered appetizers and then 15 min later, our server came to the table and told us she forgot our order and we had to give it to her again. She then brought the wrong food out. They ran out of Peroni and it took us 30 min to order our mains. The bucatini was ok but the pasta was too dense, the fettuccine with mushrooms was better. Do not recommend because the service was just bad.

  • Quinto Quarto no longer exists...
    OpenTable Diner Since 2013
    Dined on 4/14/2013
    We arrived at what we thought would be Quinto Quarto to find that ownership had changed and a "new" restaurant had opened only 2 days prior. We received no notification that this change had been made. As a party of 6, at 7:00 on a Sunday night, we did not have a lot of options left and stayed at "Abbotegga" and ate an okay meal. It was weird that we had expected one restaurant (with an entirely different menu...the only similarity was that they were both Italian) and got something completely different. A heads up would have been nice.

    My friends and I have been to Quinto Quarto several times before and once again enjoyed it very much. The restaurant is in a charming area of the West Village. The restaurant itself is warm and inviting. Ample space between tables. Only one waiter, but he did a good job of attending to all the tables. My only criticism is their sound system. The waiter seemed to have a hard time modulating the sound so we would find ourselves having to shout to be heard over the music. The waiter would lower it but the volume would keep creeping up. I've noticed the same problem other times we've eaten there. I would eat there again, though.

    We went here for a birthday dinner and it was wonderful! The whole restaurant is exposed brick and it was very cozy. I was expecting the food to be good but nothing to write home about... was I wrong! Everything was perfectly seasoned! AND I had called a couple hours before we got there to give them the heads up that it was a birthday and asked if they could do candles in the dessert. When we got there, I never mentioned it again, and they remembered, surprised the birthday boy and sang. It was a really special night. We will definitely go back!

    Quinto Quarto is one of my favorite restaurants in Manhattan. I've dined there many times for either lunch or dinner and have never been disappointed. In terms of decor, Quinto Quarto has a rustic Italian look/feel, and all of the staff seem to be authentically Italian, as well. The service is excellent, as is the food, which is well-prepared, and the pasta sauces and entrees are consistenly tasty and sometimes unusual. The restaurant also features a limited but outstanding Italian wine list. And on top of all this, Quinto Quarto is a relatively inexpensive restaurant where two people can enjoy a fabulous dinner with wine for under $100. Highly recommended.
