A word from Quattro - South Beach
Quattro Gastronomia Italiana, a truly authentic Italian restaurant on famed Lincoln Road in South Beach. You'll be tempted to bring a passport when dining at Quattro; you'll feel like you've just been transported to Northern Italy. This Milanese-style trattoria is decorated with imported Italian materials but never more impressive is the amazingly authentic cuisine. Our chefs adhere to traditional methods of preparation and use only the finest ingredients imported from Italy. Pasta and fresh seafood take center stage in many of the dishes, although veal is another prevelant element on the menu. Dessert options include housemade gelati, while the bar features many classic cocktails and an all-Italian wine list.

As they say in Italy - and at Quattro - "BUEN APPETITO!"

NOW OPEN - Quattro at JW Marriott in Mexico City

    Having read reviews before going, I had hoped Lincoln Road may have a new spot worth repeating, but this is not it. Like Bostons North End or NYC Little Italy, this falls in same tourist trap of pretending to be just like the food prepared in the old country, but instead they overprice some simple Italian dishes where the quality does not deliver, and have an extravagant wine list that is suppose to make you feel special. My young kids did not even finish their spaghetti, and they eat out all the time with us, for which they charged $19 for each plate. The veal ossubucco $49 served with rissotto was overcooked to the point that it tasted like beef. The salt was either too little or too much on everything else. The bill was over 300 for four of us, 4 glasses of wine, no bottle of wine, no dessert, 20% automatic gratuity. I dont mind paying this range when the meal is worth it, but this was not.

    This was my second visit to Quattro just for a Miami Spice lunch with some wine and it was very good. Pasta was cooked perfectly il dente, sauced and presented well. All dishes were executed well very much like Italy. Most impressive is the depth of the Italian wine list with representation from every single region of Italy. My only recommendation to the restaurant is to spend some time educating servers about wine, our was nice but clueless. If you are going to invest in a great wine list you need to invest the time to teach your servers how to understand it.

    On the recommendation of a friend, I tried Quattro last Friday. It was an early res, so restaurant was pretty quiet. Wait staff responded promptly and took my drink order, discussed specials and brought some bread. I ordered a carpaccio appetizer and the Osso Buco. The carpaccio presentation was very nice and a generous plate of food. Unfortunately, it was frankly, just bland, lacking in the sweet and pungent flavors I'm accustomed to. The Osso was also a generous portion with a nice Bolognese sauce. Again, I was disappointed as the veal was a bit on the dry side and not a melt in your mouth experience good Osso should be. One last warning, the two dirty Martini's I had were $16 - each!

    The ambience was quiet and relaxing (for indoor dining). Our waiter had an attentive attitude. He seemed like a great guy. My only criticism was that I felt like I was being treated way below my age. We were a party of four, and our ages were 23-24. Even after we told him we were over 21, he kept telling us: "as an underage requirement I will be offering you...," which got irritating after a while. Other than that. Nice place with delicious food. A great find for Miami Spice.

    After 1+ hour, it turned out our waiter could speak. Another 30 minutes, and he was able to crack a smile! Hordes of older, arrogant waiters (think traditional French waiters) hover in the beautiful dining room. The food is excellent, if on the heavy side (Piemontese, so perhaps better for a cold winter evening (but we don't have those...)). Anyway. Vitello tonnato was outstanding, as was the risotto that came with the ossobuco (giant portion btw). The wine list is long and well crafted, but the Barolo by the glass is mediocre, and at $ 25/pop, way overpriced. The mandatory 20% service charge is a joke. So this one is for the tourists. For Northern Italian food, go to Spiga or better yet: head to Sardinia for Southern Italian food. Ciao!

    If it's busy enough I recommend eating indide. It's really beautiful in there. We ate outside as most people do and it was fine, but we were by a plant that attracted alot of mosquitos. The special appetizer of burrata and prosciutto was to die for. The pastas were fine, but it was the burrata that stole the show.

    My husband were unaware that a 20 percent tip was included on the bill and we tipped 20 percent on top of that. After paying the bill we lingered for a few minutes but the waiter never brought that to our attention. He must have realized that we added 20 percent in error. We returned the next day to request a refund but were told that all returns must be processed through the main office. I am hoping the refund will be issued without further inquiry.

I could speak Italian with the maitre, which brought an even more special atmosphere to the occasion. Highly recommended!

    I read many bad reviews of this restaurant on line. Since I had been there before, with good results, I took some visiting friends there for a Lincoln Road dinner. We had a very nice time. The food was very good and arrived hot and as ordered. The waiter and bus staff were very attentive on top of everything. I will agree that the prices are somewhat high, but within reason for a good dining experience. If the place is so bad, why is it always so busy with reservations?

    We've dined at Quattro many times since it opened a few years ago and we won't go back. The prices have risen a lot -- most entrees in the $35 and up category. I had swordfish that was mediocre. Our friends had tagliatelle that was also mediocre. Really a disappointment and stricken from our list of South Beach favorites. Too bad.

    After the loud music was turned down in our ear per our request, the ambiance was lovely here. The food and service were good but we were so unnerved by receiving our salad and hot pasta dish at the exact same time, it was hard to relax into the meal. A complimentary dessert was a gracious gesture on the managers part. Will try some of the other wonderful restaurants in the area next time.

    The service was absolutely horrible. And, unfortunately, it's not the first time where this occurs. I'm not sure where they find their staff but they are condescending and rude. The food is good but it is completely overshadowed by the poor service. We went for a late lunch to have the truffle dishes and although they were good, the experience was not given the quality of our server. We should know better given the number of times this has occurred.

    We have eaten at Quattro at least 4 to 5 times and the food, the ambiance and the service has been impeccable. Last Sunday we decided to try Quattro for a late lunch.... OMG the service was non existent, the food... no comments the wine suggestions were good. When you go to a restaurant and your are seated at a table you expect at least I do... a good service, water, bread, smile, courtesy... we did not get any. We must have asked for water 10 times... finally I got up and serve water to my wife and myself. Not enough space to keep writing how bad it was. Quattro may be good for dinner.. don't do lunch

    The restaurant was very nice. However we were never asked if you wanted a cocktail. The waiter wanted to take our entree order as soon as we sat down at the table. Our dinner arrived and again we had to ask to order wine with our meal. To his credit he did leave us the wine menu when we arrived but he never followed through and asked us had we decided. The 7:30 PM seating was early for South Beach so there were few patrons that early in the evening . The hostess still sat us next to the serving station, which was so loud and uncomfortable,e we asked to move to a quieter table. We do like the restaurant and the meal was great. They jus need to train their servers better.
