Love this place. It's great for small plates, large groups, sharing food, etc. My favorite is the octopus but the pizza selection is great too. Great atmosphere and even better location!

This is on the tourist strip and is full of tourists. It is so loud. The food was average at best. It simply was not a comfortable experience.

This is a great Italian resturant. I went there with my sister in the summer before we saw Wicked. We sat on the patio. The prices were very reasonable and the wine was so good!!! You can create your own antipasto tray which was nice.

This is a GREAT place to go with friends! Excellent food, wait staff is usually good, prices are fair! .. Be prepared that they bring food out AS IT IS READY, not together with the rest of your table. So this wouldn't necessarily be a good

Cons: Noisy, food doesn't come together

I have been to quartino's twice, and both times, the service, and food was great. Just yesterday, I went with a group of 16 people, and although we had reservations, we had to wait an hour. To accommodate for that, the manager gave us A LOT of free wine and free appetizers worth $100. The manager tried everything to make sure we left out of there happy, and he did a great job. The food was great, but i recommend the cheese fondue. It is so creamy and rich, and I have gotten it both times I have been there. The price was also very good. I recommend having each person order a different dish, and then sharing that dish with 5 or 6 people. We did that and it was only $17 a person with tax and gratuity, and the food was amazing. If you are looking for an Italian restaurant with great food at a great price, quartino's is the place to go!

I've been there a number of times, and each time has been worthwhile. One time the servers passed out free appetizers, we got 3 free! Everything I've had there has been above average. I love the white bean with garlic spead ( $4.00)
