Quanto has, by far, the best Italian food in Wilmington. It also has the best ambiance, the best service, and some of the best cocktails. We’ve been here probably almost 50 times, and it is outstanding absolutely every time. We had a business partner visiting from out of town and he could not stop raving about the food the entire time we were there. It’s where we bring our guests, where we enjoy weeknight drinks, and where we have date night. Thank you to everyone at Quanto for making it our favorite!
This continues to be our favorite place to enjoy a meal with friends!
the food was excellent as i dined at the bar.the staff was outstanding as well
Great find if you're looking for a good Italian restaurant! Great food, service and ambiance. Would definitely recommend.
Cool venue. The good was only ok - had to send back the egg plant Parmesan. Had a nice time though - nice wine selection.
First time there. Nice space with high open ceiling, beautiful bar area. I split the crab appetizer with my wife. Excellent. Then had the pizza special that was outstanding. Then had a special bananas foster dessert.
They also have a good wine list. Our waitress was informative and efficient.
I recommend this place highly.
Was seated in a room around the building. The girl who lead us to our seats was not very sociable and didn’t even look back to see that we were following her!! After that, Abby took excellent care of us, keeping our glasses full! She was very attentive!! The food was excellent especially the bananas foster!!!
Dine here often. Food and service always spot on. Wednesday is 1/2 price wine. Beware of Thursday as they have live music which is just to much for the size of the bar area.
My second visit and took friends. We were pleased with food and service.
It is and enjoyable dining experience…our waiter, Nicholas was knowledgeable, attentive and helpful though out the whole meal…!
Top of the line. Best in Wilmington.
Dinner itself was fabulous. The sole issue we had was that not one member of the staff was masked. I may call them and find out the deal.
New Year’s Eve
Great all around!
The staff were all friendly, welcoming and seemed genuinely happy. The bar staff was knowledgeable and interested in their craft.
We had the bolognese, as well as the Marsala (which was served over stuffed rigatoni). Our dishes were perfectly prepared and presented with pride.
We look forward to returning.
Interesting menu, mostly small plates and excellent choices of drinks, aperitives, and wines. A bit noisy for my test and a bit expensive given the small size of the servings.
Great food, great service, great atmosphere. Would definitely return for any occasion.
Good food, excellent service. Surprisingly quiet for Christmas time, but a noisy environment.
Wine selection vary but are all good! The food is delicious, the staff competent and friendly and the portions more than ample. Can't go wrong!
We love Quanto so much. However, our food was not hot and frankly, barely warm. We've had this happen before and it is disappointing. However, we'll be back and tell the waiter to be sure the food comes out hot next time. Thanks.
QB never disappoints! The food and service is amazing and priced extremely reasonable for the quality! One of my favorite restaurants downtown for sure!
First time there and wint be last..good food,great ambiance,beautiful inside n out/ great service w Page.One complaint...no espresso in an Italian restaurant!!! Almost criminal
The interior is beautifully decorated. Liked it very much.
Food was good.. service was ok. Courses came out way too quickly.
Amazing! First time going and will definitely be back again. Everything we had was delicious and exceeded our expectations!
Great place, but way too loud. Can’t have a normal conversation.
This is the best meal we have had in Wilmington, hands down. The caprese salad and green salad to open were very refreshing. The tagliatelle and baked ziti were out of this world. We then got the short rib gnocchi and shrimp scampi risotto - so flavorful and the presentation was perfect. We finished with a cannoli and lemon sorbet. It was a perfect meal!
Food was wonderful and the service was great. This was our first visit but we'll definatley be back.
Incredible atmosphere. Great food. Outstanding service. Braised short ribs are a must. For someone who doesn't know a lot about wine, I think they have a good selection.
Great service. Good menu selection. Delicious special-lobster
Shrimp risotto extremely salty with a mere 4 shrimp on top.
Delay in receiving wine so cancelled glass
Chicken marsala totally inedible; tough chicken (?really), stuffed pasta tasted like clumps of flour, mushrooms had strange flavor that was not marsala
Our waiter was very knowledgeable about the wine selection and attentive overall. There 4 of us and everyone had something different and we all enjoyed it. The portion sizes were perfect for us (all women) but I think would be fine for anyone.
We all would highly recommend this restaurant
A. Ma. Zing. The food was excellent. The seafood cannelloni special was divine. Our server was so sweet and on top of things. Highly recommend the affogato brownie sundae. Omg. So good! Great wine list too. It’s also super cute in there. Can’t wait for patio season though because the little outside area is soooo adorable. Just go! You’ll love it!
The ambience was great, the service was excellent, and the food was absolutely delicious! We will definitely be returning to try more items on the menu.
What more can I say…. This one of our favorite places to eat and drink at!
Another excellent dinner at Quanto Basta. Our server, Lynn, was amazing. I will ask for her the next time we visit.
Love them amazing every time
Beautiful restaurant. Comfortable and inviting. We have dined there multiple times. Last night will be the last. Made reservations with the open table app and under special requests we stated we were celebrating a birthday as well as needed a couple of vegan dish options. I also called 4 days prior to make adjustment for a four top instead of two top table . No problem. I also reminded them of special requests and was assured it was noted.
Once seated, waitress nor management were aware of request. Waitress’s speech was slurred and she appeared to be detached. Ordered a couple bottles of water , wonderful cocktails, and a delicious bottle of wine. Placed orders for salad and entrees. Salads were dry. The shrimp risotto had 4 tough shrimp on top of risotto with no flavor. Chicken Marsala looked like a lean cuisine and needed an extra set of teeth to chew it. But my husband was starving and completed his meal. My vegan daughter was served plain white rice with unseasoned broccoli and red peppers. No seasoning , sautéed onions, or garlic. An Italian chef should be able to enhance a dish with appropriate seasonings in a vegan meal.
Sadly, we asked for management and we’re told by a gentleman wearing a ball cap that they “ARE an Italian restaurant.” I perceived this as they are incapable of preparing vegan meals other than plain rice and broccoli. Fine chefs should be able to meet dietary requirements especially when notified several days prior. If not, we should have been informed. So, we paid $175 for what we had eaten , drank and left. Sadly, this we be our last time dining in this beautiful restaurant because as we left my hip bumped the sandwich board sign and knocked it over. I was chased down by hostess and asked did I kick it over to which I replied no I did not. The management told my daughter never to show our faces there again. Birthday dining celebration ruined due to incapable staffing.
Good food and excellent service, the cannelloni al forno and the olive oil cake are a must.
Wonderful, once again! Great place to bring friends, always a good meal.
Beautiful ambiance, gracious and prompt wait staff and management, delicious food and great live music! We bring all of our friends there!
