Very disappointing. Octopus salad was more like a soup.. chewy.... pasta was not cooked. Veal and ahí tuna served with same vegetables no creativity and very... bland. Service however, was wonderful. Our waitress was very polite and pleasant.

Lovely location, corner spot made it less claustrophobic than other north end spots. Food was decent, table bread was wonderful. Open kitchen grill made the atmosphere warm and cozy.

Despite our 6:15 reservation, we had to wait about 20 minutes to get a table. Our server was very nice, but the service was slow and we had to remind him about bringing bread to the table. The menu has good variety without being overwhelming. We ordered the Tagliolini with meatballs and the Fruitti de Mare. The presentation was excellent, but both meals lacked flavor. The food came very quickly.

Went for a work lunch. Service was great and the food was absolutely delicious - and beautiful presentation. Would definitely try this place again. A great little modern spot in the middle of a beautiful historical place.

I have been to Quattro three times and will never be coming back. Every time I have been they rush us out of our table. We had not even been sitting for 13 minutes before the waitress had already asked us upwards of three times what we were getting to eat. I said we needed more time (we hadn’t even got bread or drinks), and she replied with “we are to busy for that you have to order now”. If you are to busy, don’t have about five reservations open for that time same day.

Overall, a really good experience. The small size made for a cozy, intimate feel. It was a little on the noisy side because it was so small. But otherwise, great. The food was really good and the service was very good as well.

We dined at Quattro before a show at the Toyota Center. Enjoyable and I am glad the restaurant is close to the venue, however, I probably wouldn’t go there for dinner unless I was going to see a show downtown.

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.

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!!

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.
