Good setup near open windows inside. Large clear barriers in between tables where necessary. Food and wine were very good. Our waitress Amanda was very helpful.

We’ve lived in the Chicago area for the past eight years and Quartino has always been a favorite. The food is always expertly prepared and served as soon as it’s ready. We’ve brought many out of town guests to Quartino and enjoyed a significant number of dishes on their menu. It’s a great place to enjoy with a table of eight, or just two, even a single diner. I can’t say enough good about Quartino.

We were able to sit inside near the doors and windows so it was not cold at all! Food was delicious and the tiramisu was BOMB! This was my first time eating here and I would definitely come back again for the gnocchi😆

The service was good. We were seated right away and the staff were very friendly. We ordered seafood dishes..the shrimp tasted fishy and the clams dish needed more salt. The sun dried tomato soup was basically like eating chunky pasta sauce from a bowl. It was ok, but couldn’t finish a whole bowl of it. The coffee taste very burnt. The highlight of our meal was the tiramisu!

Quartino's is our favorite Chicago restaurant! We go there every time we visit, and my daughter who lives in-town, gets carry-out often. The food is high quality, made in-house, and reasonably priced. The vibe is lively and fun - great service.

We had a great experience sitting outside under the awning. The heaters were all turned on so it was very warm. Our server was friendly and very knowledgeable. She let us try a few things before making our final choices. The fondue was AMAZING as well as the meat and cheese plate we chose. We had pasta and seafood as well and everything was very YUMMY!

As always, the service and food at this establishment is top notch. It is a casual environment with high-end service. The prices are affordable. Oh and I definitely need one of those Barak so soap dispensers at my house. That is the best soap, ever. My hands are so soft after using it. LOL. Make sure you buy a Parmesan cheese with Grater and a loaf of the bread to bring home

Quartino has always been among my favorites in the city. I’m glad they’re still open given the dictatorial insanity of Illinois’s governor.

Honestly, Jonathan was the least attentive server we’ve ever had at Quartino. He sauntered around like he had nowhere to be. He never did anything for us without us asking. Our carafe of water and wine were both empty for a significant amount of time before I asked him for more water. I had to get up from the table at one point to get our own share plates, which were sitting on a vacant table nearby. The item he diligently brought to the table without us prompting him was the check, which arrived approximately 45 seconds after our dessert hit the table.

I do enjoy Quartino and I understand being a server isn’t super fun right now, but engaging with your tables at the bare minimum isn’t difficult.

The food is always excellent. But the added plus this time was the excellent preparation of the restaurant for Covid-era safety. We sat outside on the balcony, above the noise and traffic, in heated and well-protected (with plexiglas separation) tables. Service was excellent. I love the orecchiette, and my dinner partner loves the linguini with clams. Both excellent. Will continue to return here...

Muy buena comida, buen servicio y precio justo, lo único es la época pues solo puedes comer en la terraza, no obstante los calentadores hacen su trabajo para que no sientas el frío, definitivamente lo recomiendo.

I was worried about being cold, but did not run into that issue at all! They had plenty of heaters going near the outdoor tables. I had jeans, sweater, and parka on and was great all dinner! Great spot to go to before it gets super cold out. 10/10 :)

The food was sub par and over salted. The service was OK but not great. Wait staff did not look around to see if customers needed anything like salt and pepper. Salad delivered without olive oil.

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.
