Usually a tourist spot, we were surprised at how good this restaurant was in terms of ambiance and food quality. It didn’t hurt that we were seated by the window with all of the Christmas lights in the background, but we loved the food and service. Whether a tourist or local, we recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a solid Italian style eatery with very nice surroundings. Plus, the place always seems to be full and hoping, so a lot of fun.

The menu doesn’t offer very many entrée options that do not include pizza or pasta. There are also few options for gluten-free and/or dairy free. It would be nice if there were more warm dishes that included a single protein and can be made gluten-free or dairy free. I was surprised that there was no attempt at social distancing. The table layout is the same as pre-Covid. A couple of the dishes we ordered were excellent, others mediocre at best. Inconsistent.

I love the vibe of Quartino almost as much as I love the food. The atmosphere can get loud, depending on how many people are in the dining room, but it's a fun restaurant. The drink selection is extensive and there's not a bad food item. I love that the plates are to share and you share just as they come out; it makes for a real food experience. Can't wait to come back!

Good Italian food. Best enjoyed in a large group as it's meant to be shared family style around the table. Very busy and noisy place, so not as great if it's just a couple for an intimate dinner.

Quartino was fantastic. The food was amazing, the service was phenomenal, and the atmosphere of the restaurant was very cozy. I could not recommend this place more. The price point is also very reasonable for the quality of the food and service. I loved Quartino and cannot wait to go back.

The food ... it's always going to be about the food, and it is excellent here. Everything else beyond that should compliment the food; the decor, the atmosphere, the wine selection, and those who make up the whole dinning experience. Chef John Coletta and his team continually "knock it out of the park" every single time I dine here.

Having grown up in Italy myself, I can easily say taht Chef John and his team really capture the essence of the Italian casual dinning experience. So much so, that you can easily spend hours dinning there and feel taken away from the frantic environs of the city. Even if you just have enough time for a quick lunch, you can find a wonderful calm and joy that comes with experiencing life through your palette.

Went to the bar area as I felt more comfortable there, and the bartenders were very attentive, great service. The truffle risotto was meh, but the shrimp diabolo was a very nice choice. I couldn't drink due to medications, but my gosh it made me want to order some cocktails so badly. Overall, very great.

This is my third or fourth time at Quartino, it is one of my favorite Italian restaurants in the city. I love the shared plates and all the dishes are amazing. Personal favorites include the veal meatballs (polpette) and the kale salad.

Beautiful place, with several rooms. I made reservations for me and my husband for my birthday, and they gave us a horrible table, they wouldn't let us go to a much better table, the food was bad and the service was terrible, rude, like the customer wasn't welcome. A big disappointment, and I will never come back to this restaurant

If you want to eat here, be sure to plan days earlier or longer. The inside table reservations fill up quickly. We were lucky to snag a canceled open table reservation. The food was really good and a good value. Service was a tad slow but every table was full so it’s understandable. If you are claustrophobic, this may not be the place for you as there are hardly an aisles and you are pretty much stuffed in between tables. Overall, pretty good affordable experience in a nice Chicago area.
