Fabulous server. Food is excellent. I took two guests from Dallas. They're thrilled to hear another Quartino is opening in Dallas next year!
First time here, it was very good! Loved the bacon wrapped dates, veal meatballs with ricotta, mushroom risotto, and sausage pasta. The salumi salad was kind of lacking ingredients. Our server was so friendly and helpful! We would definitely return.
Birthday celebrations were awesome!
Iggy was an amazing bartender! We had so much fun! Also, freaking about the dates wrapped in pancetta!
Everything was excellent. The cheese roasted peppers,olives and meat appetizer was so good and a great value. Lots of pasta came in a bowl allowing it to stay hot. Not spread out on a plate. Great idea! Our waiter was knowledgeable and genuinely nice. Would definitely go back.
Llegue poco tarde por problemas de trafico pero si asisti y todo excelente gracias
Lively but noisy. Food ok but one pasta dish served not warm enough.
Very good.But very popular and very congested so we are waiting for foods and drink for a long time.
I always love all my visits here. A friend was in from out of town and I knew she would love it too. She was impressed by the food and service! My husband is a chef and makes the best risotto. I have not found a place close enough to his perfection, but here is pretty dang close! Thank you!
Great incredible tasting italian food served in smaller portions for most the menu, at very reasonable prices for the location and quality level. Service good but not outstanding (in terms of overall attitude). I got the vibe they didn't feel we would tip hard, and we always tip well, so please don't assume.
Our absolute fav in Chicago!
It was great! The staff was on point and actually did well with helping my fiancee propose to me!
We had reservations for my birthday on a Saturday night. We let them know we were waiting at the bar( got there 30 minutes early) and were seated 20 minutes early. It was very loud but the food came quickly, our order was accurate, my grapefruit cocktail was delicious, and everything we ordered was hot and delicious. We ordered the short ribs, fried polenta and grilled octopus. Wanted to order the steak but we wanted to try the zepolis. We are glad we did. Came with honey and chocolate sauce. We were so full and happy with our meal. Great bday celebration!
Good small and large plates. Delicious donut desert!!
Friends birthday we went on a whim and had great service, great food, and a great bottle of wine! Highly recommend. The portions are on the smaller side so I recommend splitting 2-3 dishes per 2 people depending on how hungry you are.
excellent all around, food, service and open table reservation.
We love Quartino. The small plate concept is the perfect way to dine, for us. Quartino is laid back and easy going. We get adjust our meal as we go and we can try so much more by ordering as we go throughout the night.
Pizza was delicious but found the pasta pretty average. Great place if you don’t want to travel out of downtown but there are much better places outside River North. Try and stay away during peak hours.
Veal Meatballs - 8/10. Goat-Milk Ricotta 10/10. Margherita Pizza 8/10. Gnocchi 6/10 - The gnochhi itself was perfect texture, but we found the pesto to be overly salty, it overwhelmed any brightness of the herbs. Beef Short Rib 9/10. Wish we were hungry enough for dessert because it looked amazing.
Service: Very good, given the crowd. Do not expect and small talk or conversation from your waiter, too frantic to ask for recommendations or many questions. Know what you want to order when they have a second to stop by.
Ambiance: Loud, lively, energetic. Definitely shouting for conversations.
Value: Amazing. $130 before tip for 4 people - 5 shared plates + drinks for all. Awesome.
Delicious! Definitely get the pancetta wrapped dates! Soooo good.
We had a large group and they took wonderful care of us!
Great place. Could really use first floor restroom facility! My only complaint.
Ambiance was great, decor is awesome. Service is very good...but food was terrible. Huge dissapointment. Had the gnocchi who are supposed to be one of the House specialties....tasted like they were frozen and gotten out of the fridge and heated. Really bad. Had also a burrada...which wasn’t bad but average. A real pitty.
Love this place! Service is great food is perfect and the environment puts you in the mood for more and more pasta.
We are “regulars” at Quartinos and the staff does a fabulous job taking care of us, no matter how packed the place may be. The food is always excellent and reasonably priced. The Italian wine list contains a wonderful selection of both whites and reds that can be ordered “Quartino”, allowing each individual to choose there favorite wine. And don’t pass on the desserts. That would be a mistake.
Way too many tables are jammed in what would otherwise be a decent space. This makes for uncomfortable dining as you are so close to the people at the next table. In addition, the noise level is too "energetic" for our liking. Outside seating is available for a quieter dining experience. The food quality was mediocre (risotto, pizza, grilled octopus, prosciutto wrapped dates (or figs?)). We will not be hurrying back to Quartino.
Service was extremely slow, though I would contribute to our waiter. Restaurant was not very busy for a lunch hour. Food quality was very good however.
This week, I celebrated my birthday with 12 friends and it was a wonderful evening. Great value, great food, and great service. Always a great time at Quartino!
This place was amazing! Stay outside which was a beautiful night just had to listen to all the motorcycles racing by. I would recommend this place to everyone
Great food! Awesome service!
This place was awesome and the eggplant parmesan was the best that I've had in the city!! Great value and great food!! Oh, and order the chocolate cake with the melted chocolate on the inside -- amazing experience.
Food was really good, the servers were fast and friendly even thou it was pretty full.
We are repeat customers. As always, food was incredible. Service this time was sub par and a bit disappointing. Will not stop us from returning again.
Nice little spot with reasonably priced good food and good strong drinks.
Definitely will return.
Always awesome food and great service :)
Neat place. Very informal service. Told them it was a very special occasion and we were still stuck with the worst table in the house packed into the corner in a separate room next to a rambunctious
Food was awesome! Everyone talks about how loud it is. It is, but in an awesome family dining way. Great food, service, and atmosphere. We’ll be back.
The food was fabulous and the servers were lovely. Everything was well priced and came out in a timely manner. 10/10!
Ordered fettuccine alfredo with chicken and the chicken was boiled cubes of meat rather than blackened.....very tasteless, had to add salt and pepper to give it some flavor.
Had a family of 7, gparents, parents 7yr-4yr-2 month old boys.
Seated in great spot against a wall, , food was fast for kids, we had great time
Did make reservations several days before... would recommend for great tasting and wine/drink menu’s
