This was the first visit for the three of us. The waiter was very helpful and knowledgeable about the menu. We ordered 5 different dishes and shared them. The food was absolutely delicious. We had dessert, which was also delicious, and I was pleasantly surprised when I received the bill. It was lower than I expected. I can’t wait to go again.

We were able to be seated outside and with all the heaters on it was perfect. The food was great (pizza and kale salad) and it was a great value too. I can definitely recommend this restaurant for a safe lunch and dinner experience.

Best food, best service. But they need more outdoor heaters, or tent walls or something to help with temperature when having to eat outside bc of restrictions.

We understand what is going on with Covid. We had no problem putting on our mask when the server came to the table. When the server continues to come to the table every few minutes for no apparent reason it seem as if we were being tested. If there is a policy please make sure it’s communicated to your clients. As in adhere the policy to the table for the people that aren’t familiar with local requirements. Comments to friends and family stay away from the restaurant’s in the city until this pandemic is over...

Elizabeth was a fantastic server, she practiced great Covid precautions, explained the menu and service practices! Food was very hot upon being served! The portions at times could be larger, as in the Ahmazing truffle-porcini risotto! We ordered it for a side to share, and it was gone in a flash! It was delicious! We decided we definitely wanted to come back for just the risotto! All other sides, entrees and desserts were ample sized! The location is wonderful especially for a nice evening! Patio seating is great for people watchers and getting that dose of, “ City Vibe”! Looking forward to our next meal at Quartino! Parking is close at parking garage located at 10 E Ontario! Just across the street!

I've gone to Quartino on a regular basis the past few years and I've always been happy with my experiences there. This one was no different. The Thyme Machine is an outstanding drink (I usually get their house wine). And the pasta was once again delicious.

Love you, Quartino!

I am from Ohio and when in Chicago, it is a must to visit Quartino's. Their family style meals are delicious and it seems that no matter what we pick, we enjoy it. If you have room, their desserts are amazing as well.

Always great but visited on a Wednesday night and unfortunately our server was barely present, either he was too busy with too many tables or simply not attentive. All in all though a great experience during Covid times. We will be back.

Quartino has always been a go-to for me. I love the shareable style eating. If you are not into sharing, it’s perfectly acceptable to order your own dish and eat it all to yourself. The food is delicious. Also the wine is super duper affordable, and you can order it in multiple different sizes - glass, 1/4 liter, 1/2 liter, etc.

My biggest complaint is that the food was lukewarm when it came out. Additionally, it took quite a while for the server to come to our table and greet us and when they finally did they didnt bring us silverwear or plates, just a plate of bread and small container of olive oil. The hostess at the front was also not very friendly and didnt even make eye contact with us.

Felt like we were rushed out of the restaurant, service was too fast and food came out too quickly making it feel like it was pre-cooked.

Thank you for your recent visit! Our sincere apologies if your experience felt rushed, that is certainly not the level of service we are striving for. Quartino is proud to use fresh, authentic ingredients, and the kitchen produces every dish to order, our regrets if this was not the impression that was left after the meal. Please don't hesitate to call the restaurant and request a manager on duty to share your full experience, as we are always looking for ways in which we can improve.
