My friends and I have been
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.

Better than quinto quarto!
The pasta dishes were all interesting. I had the artichoke ravioli and it was amazing. My husband had mushroom pasta dish. That was excellent also. We will be back!

Really authentic dining
Small menu but so good! We watched the chef make the pasta in front of us. Every dish was first rate and the service was perfect. We'll definitely go back

Hospitality is first
As soon as you walk in the door one feels the hospitality of Italy. The staff is wonderful and the food is very good. I had calamari stuffed with potato and arugula Just talking about it makes my salivary glands tickle

We were in a hurry to make
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.

Great ambiance, authentic Italian
Dined with a large group on Saturday night and we all loved it. The food was like an Italian grandmother was making it. Fresh, lots of good choices, great salads moderately priced wine list.The ambiance is very charming, low lighting, white brick walls, wooden timbers in ceiling. Enjoyed the experience very much. All the diners were smiling at the other tables too.

Authentic Italian food done right
Great little spot with food that tastes homemade. All four of us loved our dishes, and the service was great.

We lucked upon finding Abbottega by searching Open Table for same day reservations for 4 on a Friday night. The food was excellent. House made pasta dish was very flavorful and authentic. The lamb ribs were superb. Great service and decent prices. Highly recommend Abbottega.

Great group outing
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.

Company Group of 15+, Great Service
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.
