Amazing food and service!!! We shared several small plates and loved everything. Our waiter was Oliver, I believe, and he was attentive, polite, and helpful every step of the way!!

The fresh made pasta was sooo good, but I found the portion small. I could've easily had two servings.

Although they mention the meals are designed to be shared, the portions are extremely small. If you're someone with a big appetite, eat a sandwich before coming here. We were a group of 4, two couples, and ordered 7 different plates. Ended up paying $80/couple and all of us were hungry 30 minutes afterwards. Also, we informed the hostess that it was my buddies birthday, she even went to the table to confirm who it was, and they didn't do anything. Not a dessert, not a happy birthday message, no singing, nothing. I mean the food is tasty, but you may want to consider this place for a snack rather than dinner.

Love the food. I’ve been here a couple times or I order delivery but this time was different. The hostess was very rude and stand-offing. The whole I was at the restaurant my date noticed servers and busboys watching us. I told him like I’ve never got a weird vibe from this place and maybe he is just a little is nervous. I did say the hostess was weird by the way she looked when we walked and how she responded to the questions I asked her. Later on after we order I do notice ppl coming to our table a lot and causally fixing the table that is attached to our table. I also notice serves/busboy looking at us while they causally fix tables, stand by the sink that is in the back by our table. We both notice the hostess looking us up and down and looking as if she is talking to someone about what we have on. We get the check, pay then go to the bathroom. Some man thanks us for coming and I assume maybe he is the manager or owner. He seems friendly and he says bye to me when I am coming downstairs. They are closing so I guess they locked the doors and the hostess unlocks the door for me. I try to speak with her and she rolls her eyes. I just say thank you and have a good night and she just closes the door. I’ve never experienced this before or maybe I didn’t pay attention to it but it was a weird experience for my date and I as it was his first time there. The place was also very loud and the whole time we were there some drunk girl was very loud and obnoxious. I wish they would have done something about it. I didn’t want to give the place a bad rating because the food is good and nothing happened besides us feeling uncomfortable so I give it 3 stars.

Quartino doesn't disappoint! It was my first visit but I really loved how crisp the puzza dough was - exactly how I love my pizza. I really recommend the house made pasta more than anything. Great value. Will definitely return

I ordered the fettuccine alfredo and had it topped with the shrimp diavolo. It was so good! We also had a 1 ltr carafe of one of their cabernets. The atmosphere was fun and upbeat. Our server was great.

Lovely time at Quartino. We loved the gluten free menu options. The kale salad appetizer was amazing. GF pasta was the best I’ve ever had. Great selection of food and wine.

Staff was friendly and attentive.

We will be back!
