    Visiting Chicago for the first time, we found this restaurant just walking around and decided to make reservations. It was a good decision! Great food, reasonable prices for Chicago and the current economic situation. I knew everything was going to be good when they brought the bread for the table with a bottle of the best balsamic vinegar I have every tasted and a small can of delicious extra virgin olive oil to dip the bread in. Our waiter did a great job explaining how everything worked. It is sort of "family style". Everything you order comes out as soon as it is ready in the kitchen and the plates are made for sharing. We ordered a few appetizers and three different entrees. My only caveat with this method is that everything seems a bit rushed because food just keeps coming to the table at different times and you feel you just have to keep eating rather than having some time in between each course. But that would not deter me from going again as I would know what to expect. All food was of high quality and delicious. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone wanting delicious food and a fun dining experience.

    We waited 15 minutes after our reservation time to get a table although there were available tables. After 30 minutes being seated, we had not received our drink order. We told the hostess and left. Poor experience and would not recommend.

    Was disappointed that they were out of some items but totally understand. Our waiter was great about offering alternatives to the things we wanted. It's very loud - so if you're looking for a quiet dinner, this is not the choice for you. We were lucky to be tucked back in the corner so it wasn't quite as noisy. Overall - great food, great place.

    While the food and the service were good, there were serious drawbacks that will keep us from returning to this restaurant. First of all, the tables were way too close to each other. I felt like we were packed in there like sardines. There were so many people, and our table was in the middle of the room, so waiters and waitresses were constantly walking past me and bumping my chair, and also bumping me. The other thing was that it was extremely loud. My wife had to actually have a throat lozenge when she got home because she had been yelling so loud to be heard over the noise. I could barely hear our friend who was sitting across from me, and I kept having to cup my ears like a deer to be able to hear what she was saying.

    Quartino is a special treat for Italian food lovers. Everything about it—the lovely dining rooms, friendly and efficient service, delicious food and wine options—combines to make for an excellent experience. It is also great value and lots of fun. We recommend the burrata and bruschetta, as well as the salmon, mussels in white wine sauce, and pappardelle with meat sauce. Profiteroles, banana coppa, and zeppoli were outstanding to finish the dinner.

    Food is fantastic, love being able to order multiple dishes and try different things. Orders come out quickly. Server was great. Desserts are to die for. We brought our kids and there are not many kids there, but it is very loud inside anyway so there’s no way for kids to be disruptive! Probably would not recommend for a first date or quiet date due to the noise level

    Excellent service and food from the moment we entered. Blake and Soro(?) were our lead servers. Attentive, helpful, checked to ensure all was good. Another server, Andrew, also helped and cleared used dishes. The manager, Ashley stopped by to check. A fine experience: great food, super people. Take you Quartino.

    We had a great time! One of our party is deaf and so we asked to sit in a quieter area, which was well accommodated. Quartino has always been our favorite Italian place in Chicago.
