    Always love dinner at Ema. We brought our friends here who were visiting from DC. The wait to be seated and the wait for food was a bit longer than usual, likely attributed to a very busy and booked night. I also thought it was a bit noisy and hard to hear the other folks at our table (6 of us total). The food was awesome as always. We will certainly be back!

    Josh was exceptional. He always appeared at the right time to refresh drinks and take orders. Food was excellent expect the Tiramisu was not as thick as expected. The Truffle Pizza and pasta were delicious. We sat outside and the atmosphere was more elegant inside. It was equally as loud inside as outside. We would definitely come back.

    We dined at Quartino on a Tuesday evening, 6:00, with 7 people. The restaurant filled quickly and was packed by the time we left. We had an Awesome experience!! Our server was Jaclyn, and she #nailedit. We shared a family style meal and ordered more food 1/2 way through. Jaclyn didn’t forget a single request & was was perfectly present throughout the meal. Table was cleared quickly when the empty plates began appearing. Food is Outstanding, we enjoyed 6 different entrees and a pizza - our picks were mostly from the house-made pasta selection and a bit from the imported pasta selection. All were incredible, and we had to order more Tagliatelle and Penne w/Vodka - they were the table favorites. We were too full for dessert, but the dessert menu had lots of options. It’s a cool restaurant inside, vintage, lots of old tile, windows, and woodwork. We sat on the main floor in the large dining room. Tables are close together but you don’t feel like you’re rubbing elbows with your neighbors. Noise is loud but fine - you can hear your table. Bathrooms are kinda cool, with vintage farm sinks and powdered hand soap. It’s a Chicago must-do!
