Family was in from out of town. We had been to Quartino for the first time in the Fall of 2019. Both visits were completely flawless and spectacular. My niece has a severe dairy allergy and, both times, the servers were very knowledgeable and helpful in recommending dishes with no dairy. Also, a meal for 7 was incredibly reasonable, we all ate, drank, had dessert; it’s an incredible value. I totally recommend Quartino, it has something for everyone, seafood, meat, pasta, etc.

ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! The food never fails to impress. This is definitely in my top 5 favorite places to go in river North because it has such a great balance of food, ambiance, and pricing. The service is always great but this time was one of the best as Ryan took care of us and was nothing short of excellent. Q’s will always have my business and will always be a go-to for me.

Our check was printed at 10:30 pm and the waiter did not come back with the copy to sign the receipt until 11:00 pm, a whole 30 minutes where we just waited.

Requested a 7pm reservation on their website never heard anything back so I made a 8 reservation on open table just in case and called about the 7pm and was told I couldn’t get it. That would be nice to have been told so I didn’t bank on 7pm

My family came to town and I took them here for dinner. We all had a great time! The wine was amazing and every single dish we had was mouth watering. It’s family style dining, so we got several dishes to share (eggplant Parmesan, penne vodka, and tortellini, and calamari). Every dish was fantastic! The Euro cup was also on which made the vibes and ambiance very fun and exciting! For the quality of food and wine, the prices were very reasonable (which is always a huge plus). I’m definitely coming back soon :)

Family trip to Chicago. Amazing restaurant. Best Italian food and unbelievable prices. Shoutout to Hugo, bartender that stepped out and served us since all servers were too busy. I would go back every time. Recommend a 100%.

Service was not good. We were 4 and each meal arrived separately almost 15-20 minutes apart. My Shrimp Diavlo order was even later (after everyone almost finished their meal) and the restaurant manager came to assure me that my order is on the way. He never apologized, but he took the cost of the shrimp off the tab. The waiter Anthony was very nice and polite and he did apologize for the delays. I guess it was a screwup from the kitchen.

Seated promptly Service was good, but not great. Food was also very good but not the best Italian i have eaten in Chicago. This is a great choice for family dining in River North as it was a great value. The noise level was deafening but the prices were again very reasonable. I will return.

I came here with a friend and we ended up sitting inside overlooking the street. The waiter was very nice however towards the end of our meal he basically forgot about us and we had to ask someone for the check. The food portions were great. We had a Caesar and kale salad. We split the grilled octopus and olive dish.

This was my second time going to quartino and it was just as good. The fresh pasta was so delicious. Would recommend the choose your own cheese plate and the tagliatelle.
