Quattro Gatti Ristorante e Pizzeria Ratings and Reviews
This was our first time in this restaurant and I’m not sure if it was an off night. Our server was quite busy so we were pretty much on our own. Other people came by to refill our water glasses which we appreciated. The food was okay. We had a pizza and pasta dish.
We were there for lunch and service was EXTREMELY slow. It wasn't very busy so I'm not clear on what the delay was and the server never acknowledged how long we had been waiting. If you're in a hurry, this is not the place to go. I will definitely return for a dinner meal when I have more time, but I won't chance it again during lunchtime.
We are frequent diners at Quattro Gatti, but the Sunday night of F1 race weekend is always special. Normally, QG isn't open on Sundays, but during F1 weekend that is an exception. The restaurant is always filled with people from all over the world. It's great fun to sit/eat at the bar and listen to the different conversations going on around you, often in different languages. QG is very popular with the Ferrari racing team and others from around the world for its wonderful cuisine. I had the veal chop (on special, and it was amazing) and my wife had rigitoni, also very delicious. Gianfranco, the owner, always has great wines and we enjoyed a full bodied Saia, from Sicily. The perfect complement to our meal. As always, we had a great meal!
Working downtown, wanted to meet for lunch on Congress, north of the 2nd-to-6th Street hotspot for restaurants. Quattro Gatti seemed like a good choice. Ambience is a little tired - older downtown building - but welcoming. Food was better than the ambiance suggested - we enjoyed the meal quite a bit. This place may face some competition from the new Caroline across the street, and will likely have to step up the atmosphere as downtown matures.
This was our first time and we loved it. My niece was visiting and she loves pasta and pizza. It was all very good and the waitress was very polite and she great made recommendations from the menu. The Fettucine alla Bolognese was awesome!! Can't wait to go back.
Service was extremely slow (8 minutes before someone even came to our table, 10 more minutes before I got my glass of wine). They were friendly, just extremely slow. Food was so-so. Could have had a similar meal at Olive Garden, to be honest, so price made it not a great experience.
Who knew a neighborhood Italian restaurant was hidden right in the heart of downtown Austin? Delicious and generous portions, an extensive wine menu (by the glass/split/bottle), and a great chill atmosphere. Our table of 4 started with the Classica Bruschette, a fresh Burrata, and a nice Chianti. Next out was one of the best pizzas in Austin. The wood-fired oven can easily be seen from the dining area. The marinara made the Pollo alla Parmigiana. Two in our party ordered daily specials-Linguini Salmone (amazing) and the Linguine Allo Scoglio (delicious but a little spicy for our friend). We were full and declined the offer of Dolci but enjoyed the little Limoncello shot at the end of our meal. We will be back!
The restaurant was great! We went for lunch, were greeted right away and sat at a table of our choice. Our server was very polite and responsive. The food was also very delicious and cooked perfect - everything was brought out as ordered. We did feel the prices were a little high to not include a salad or side with the entree. And canned sodas aren't my favorite at a restaurant when you're paying $20+ a person. Overall, I would definitely go back but maybe better for dinner than lunch for the price.
