    Fantastic!! Highly recommend, great food, prices, ambiance. Cannot wait to come back! And restaurant week was the best deal/quality food in the city. Make sure to get an espresso martini while you’re here, delicious.

    Everytime I have been there everything has been excellent. This time though, the service was not great. The waiter did not bring extra plates and we had to ask multiple times for extra water. The bus boys and the food runners were good but the waiter himself was not great. In the past I have had great service at Quartino but this time it was fair at best.

    Went for restaurant week. Delicious Caesar and chicken parm, but restaurant was super busy and we couldn’t even get butter for the bread when we asked. Tagliatelle came out cold. Good quality but poor service overall. Reasonably priced wines.

    We couldn’t hear the waiter speak the restaurant was so loud. Also our table was right next the kitchen. All you could hear was the cooks and plates being broken. Food was good but our table location was terrible and waiter wasn’t the greatest just okay.

    Everything was good except it was the first time we were seated at a ridiculously small 2 top table and we felt very cramped. I would’ve totally understood if it was really crowded and it was all that was available, but it seemed so unnecessary tonight given that it wasn’t very busy and there were several 4tops available. Had we had more room for plates, we would’ve probably ordered more food and drinks. Just something for your host staff to keep in mind. Thanks!

    I have been to Quartino at least 60-70 times over the last decade and have posted many reviews - which typically praised the consistent food and efficient, friendly service. On this recent visit the service was good as usual but the food had deteriorated. Someone decided to change the Bruschetta and the result was miserable. Two cherry tomatoes (not chopped) on a tiny piece of bread similar to that provided as complimentary bread service. No noticeable flavor of garlic or balsamic. Frankly the dish was a disgrace. Also the spaghetti vongole portion size was significantly smaller than previously. Maybe these two examples are an indication of cost cutting attempts to offset inflation but if so it’s a very misguided strategy. I hope this is a one-off and not the start of a steady decline in standards…

    We were not impressed. They have so many tables crammed into the dining room that if you're in the middle section, you can't get up from your table unless someone next to you gets up. Not safe at all. It's so tight the waiter had to reach over the person at the table next to us to take our order and give us our bill. The food was ok, but wasn't hot when it came out. We ordered two pastas and eggplant parmesan to start. The eggplant was drowning in sauce and so mushy. Since this is tapas style, we thought we'd order a bit more after our first round of food, but our waiter didn't come back for so long (not like he could get to us anyway) so we decided we were done and went somewhere else for dessert. We went for a nice Christmas dinner after exploring the city all day and Quartino did not live up to expectations. Highly unlikely we'll ever go back with so many great Italian options in Chicago.

    We ordered the charcuterie board and it was delicious. For $33 you have a choice of 2 meats, 2 cheeses, two veggies and olive assortment. For two people it was a hearty lunch. The wine was very good with a good price point. Our server was extremely helpful and had the best demeanor.
