Quattro is a definite must if you're visiting the North End of Boston. The atmosphere is modern, hip and energetic. Michael was our waiter and was excellent. Each of us had a different dish and all were excellent. The chicken soup and the meatball appetizer were of equal quality. Quattro will definitely see us again.

Have the steak tips. I came for pizza and was encouraged to try these by the (wonderfully friendly) server. My family had the pizza: they loved it.

I was entertaining some work friends from out of state and Quattro was a great place to go for a casual dinner that highlighted the charm of the north end. Everything was perfect and we enjoyed a great evening.

Absolutely love Quattro. It is our go-to place for a relaxing dinner. Not your typical Americanized pasta place with a great variety of grilled over an open flame carni (sausage, lamb, chicken, beef); fresh salads and wonderful pizza cooked in a straight-from-Italy ceramic oven! Try the grilled lamb skewer, absolutely best lamb I have ever had, when it's on the menu get the lobster ravioli, and the meatballs are delicious! The chicken parm is really quite good as well.

The wait-staff and bartenders are always friendly, allow you to enjoy the evening without rushing to get you in & out, and have good suggestions. Top-notch all around!

P.S.: When there's seating available at the bar & kitchen, we really enjoy sitting there versus in the dining room area.

This place is amazing!! Best italian pizza I have ever had in the U.S. Not to talk about the workers. I went there by myself and ended up staying the entire night talking in italian with them (Carmela, i sette nani, la zia e la morte). Will for sure go back next time in Boston! Grazie ragazzi, felt like at home!!

The food was very good, restaurant was uncomfortably tight with more tables than it should have. Service was so-so. There are many other places to choose from in the N End; this was just okay considering the competition.

The service was very good, the food horrible. All four us didn’t finish our food due to poor taste, no flavor, bad presentation, Etc. Then to top it off, sick three hours later! We’ve eaten the North End many times and this is the first BAD meal we’ve had. We won’t be going back!

Great food. We were early for reservation so sat at bar to wait. They still had Sam Adams Octoberfest on tap but it was flat. That was the only disappointment. Table was ready when our dining partners arrived. Service was spot on. Sound level was moderate and that was with a full restaurant when we left.

We loved this restaurant! The only thing negative is their doorway. It was cold and patrons were coming in looking for a host and leaving the door open. This was continuous throughout our meal, we had to put our coat on because of the cold.

The place is very nice on the inside, with a great marble bar and open fire oven/rotisserie. The environment is great and very comfortable. The food is ok. Nice fresh cheese and herbs, but the lamb skewer wasn't seasoned and was overcooked unfortunately. The cocktails were not great - really tasted like mixer instead of spirits. This place is also quite expensive for unremarkable food/drinks - two plates and a few cocktails was already $100+. Overall a decent place but not somewhere I'll be looking to go back to.

A usual ‘spot on’ place for a few years that we’ve been going there, but left disappointed. The service was good,friendly and attentive. We shared a pizza and some shrimp scampi as appetizers which were both very good. I ordered my usual Chicken parm which was as I remembered but the side pasta was drenched in sauce. I did ask for another side that came quickly and as it should have the first time. My real issue was when I went into the men’s bathroom, and it was very and tidy. Someone from the kitchen left a rag on the vanity that had tomato sauce all over it, the tissues were out and just not at all a good reflection on the restaurant. I hope they improve the attention to detail next time, seems like it is slipping a little.

We went to the North End looking for a modern Italian restaurant with great food. The interior is bright and clean but cozy. I spent the entire evening with some guy's back right up against my side of the table. There is a big fire with a spit and the bar is right in front of it. It makes for a dramatic setting. There must be about 10 tables in the whole place. The appetizers were really good (calamari and Octopus salad) and our wine was fine. The roast chicken was a little on the bland side and my pasta amatriciana was good but not fabulous. My daughter had the pizza and I think people go to Quattro for the pizza.

We were in town from California and chose to eat at Quattro one night spontaneously. It was so good, so enjoyable, we came back via a reservation, for our last night in town. We had the same server who was terrific as well.
Food was delicious, wine was good, the atmosphere lively.

This place is so cozy - love the warmth from the pizza oven. A great option for excellent pizza in the North End. It's a little pricey for appetizers, but enjoyed splitting a couple things with friends. The sangria is strong!
