    Good italian food, good service, not expediting. Terrace is a good place to eat.

    This place is loud, crowded, not romantic. The food lacks proper seasoning. Not sure how the ratings are so high, clearly they haven't tried better food.

    Casual restaurant, don't dress up.

    This is a place to share! Great setting to get a carafe of wine with a bigger group.

    Pasta portions are rather small. Food was fine, but nothing special.
  • Jose S.
    Terrible...both Pasta & Risotto were undercooked -not al dente but undercooked. Asparagus Risotto was a bit sandy. Service was forgetful. Taking over 5 min to bring cheese and most of other orders.

    The authenticity of the food great and the staff was all great!!

    Nice atmosphere. Great veal meatballs. The appetizer portion is more than enough for dinner with a side salad.

    Aw yeah. The tagliatelle puts happiness in your belly. The fresh pastas are all good, as is the diverse red wine list, but the pizzas aren't special.

    The cozy atmosphere has great service and a family like staff. The servers are great with kids. Their amazing tiramisu isn't on the menu, but is the best thing there. This is my favorite place to go.

    Literally love this place. Staff is knowledgable and very kind. Gets busy and loud. Kitchen is open until 1:00 am, but the cut off is strictly 15 minutes before. Otherwise open until 3!

    FourSquare says this place is a wine bar. That is a lie. It's a restaurant that feels like a factory and the food is whatever. Dislike.

    Loved the Pene alla Vodka. One of the best I've had. The porcino and truffle rissoto was good and the chocolate cake was sooo delicious. The ocopus was ok and the veal sliders were not bad either.

    Can't say enough good things about the veal meatballs, bolognese, and wine. Jarell, our server, was 100% on point. We're coming back, every week!

    A much classier option for your late night out case of the munchies than Rock n Roll McD's. Serves thin crust pizza only after a certain hour. Buttery thin crust > mystery meat chicken nuggets.

    Pasta dishes are quite good. In the evening, Quartino can be quite loud and crowded. I prefer the lunch hour when it is more tranquil and relaxing.

    Хорошее вино по хорошим ценам. Большой выбор сыра и мяса, так что можно составить свою персональную тарелку под вино. Правда официанты не совсем приветливы.
