The Family style cooking and atmosphere makes this place a must do when you come to Chicago!
Cousin came in from out of town
Everything about Quartino was amazing! We had friends visiting from out of state and wanted to do dinner with great food and value. This was it! Our friends even wanted to come back the following night because they loved their dinners so much :)
Food and service are outstanding!
The food was not that good & the portion sizes were small
Loved the food and ambiance for our special occasion! Our server, Will, was very attentive and informational regarding the menu items. Food came out quick and timely, every dish was amazing. Next time I’m in Chicago, I will be returning!
Was wonderful, the food was amazing and came out very quickly! The services was outstanding. We got to our reservation 15 minutes late, but I called at our reservation time to let them know and they held our table. It was all wonderful!
Valentine’s Day dinner, excellent service and even better food!
Had the octopus, short ribs, and pasta in vodka sauce. The food was good. Service was quick. Will definitely go again.
Such a fun experience! The food was fabulous as was the service. Definitely recommend!
Quartino's never disappoints. The variety on the menu always wants me coming back to try different things and the service is friendly and fast; yet you also won't feel rushed. Spend less than an hour or the afternoon or evening; you'll be treated to warm smiles and a relaxed ambiance.
Quartino’s host stand is always a mess, and this experience was no exception. They were super rude, didn’t even greet me or respond to me for 10 minutes while I stood in front of them wanting to check in for my reservation. Zero eye contact was made. Then when they finally were ready to listen, and took my name for my reservation, I was made to wait nearly 30 minutes past my reservation time.
The dinner itself was fine and everyone else was cheery and kind, but I almost walked out before I was even seated. It was THAT bad. What’s the point of a reservation if it’s still incredibly difficult to be seated?
The food was excellent, however the noise level was so much that you could not even hear the person across the table from you. Service was slower than normal.....it would generally take 5-10 minutes to get a refill on a drink (even soda) . We both left and our ears rang for over 2 hours from all the noise. You expect a certain amount of noise on a Saturday evening, but the acoustics in that building are not good.
Went for restaurant week. All of the food was delicious. It is a crowded loud restaurant. The service was enthusiastic but very choppy. One of our diners did not get his second course. Good sized portions. Much bigger than the Tapas sized portions that they advertise. Nice wine list with much lower mark up than you see at other downtown restaurants. We would definitely come back
It was too crowded, too loud and the food was just okay to me. This was highly recommended by a coworker and I was highly disappointed.
Excellent food. Excellent price. Excellent service.
I have lived and worked in the city for some time, yet this was my first experience at Quartino’s. I came with my teenage boys and we loved the food. We had an appetizer, three shared plates, dessert and coffee. Everything was delicious and service was exceptional. Our waiter was very attentive, along with all the other staff. We’ll be back!
I stopped in this weekend with a friend to check out their Restaurant Week menu. We had reservations and were seated very quickly on the second level. Our server Ariel was very friendly and knowledgeable of the menu. She was able to answer all of the questions that we had. We're both GF which is sometimes limiting at Italian restaurants, but she was able to give us a lot of options for us to enjoy; we'll definitely be back!
We loved the food and wine. So many choices, but not overwhelming. The restaurant was really well priced for downtown Chicago. Just know that you may feel like you’re on a date with the table next to you!
Amazing food and service for a reasonable price! We did have to wait about 40 minutes past our reservation time but would still highly recommend.
This is a quality place for whatever your dining needs - the ambiance is warm & lively, the food is flavorful and true to classic recipes, and the service is precise, professional and warm. Our family eats here often and have NEVER been disappointed. The management team knows what guest want in premier dining, and details are attended to. The staff is extreme professional and inviting, friendly and attentive standards. With a “share” menu many utensils are used, plates are abound for tastes, and the wait staff always is alert. Never will you ask for anything twice!
This is a pleasant place to enjoy very good food - and a warm atmosphere of joy and contentment- truly a happy place in the city !
Service and food are always amazing here!! This is my go-to spot for Italian and wine.
Birthday-very good service, food..
We’ve been stopping at Quartino’s for over ten years EVERY time we visit Chicago and we’ve never been disappointed. Managers visit with guests every time to make sure our dining experience was better than the last. You leave feeling like family every time. Best restaurant in Chicago!
Very good food, great service, but noisy
Lively atmosphere, attentive service and the food was delicious. We loved the tapas-stype plates, and the tiramisu was excellent. We'll be back!
We had a retirement party at Quartino and the food and service was awesome. Everyone had a wonderful time.
Service and food always excellent!
The food is amazing. I love the tapas style and being able to share all the delicious options. We have been there twice, and in spite of the long wait both times, it has been worth it. The only problem is the wait. The food, service, and atmosphere is always amazing.
Really nice restaurant and amazing food but on a Saturday night it was way too crowded and had to wait even though we had a reservation.
Place is nice but can you please stop being cheap and put bigger tables. They put us 4 at a table for two.
Food was good. Matt was our server and he was amazing!! Best service ever!
We had a great experience at dinner. The food was good but what really "made" the dinner was our service. Our server was just excellent. She was fun and gave us wonderful recommendations. We will be back!
We were visiting from out of town and discovered it was Restaruant Week. Would come back even if it wasn’t!
She didn’t hate me
Lovely restaurant with exceptional service. I felt at home and the waitress was very nice and good at recommending what to eat. I had the restaurant week for one although it's to share, at $36 it counts for every penny. I would definitely go again whenever I'm back in Chicago.
