Shop and dine

People watching from this cafe in the mall is the best. Food is good and the deserts mouth watering. Servers are friendly and sweet, but I feel that the last time I ate there they may have been short staffed.

Being a restaurant in a mall, I rather have a quick lunch here than dinner. Food is up to standard, lunch set is great, I particularly love the salad with their own salad dressing and the ciabatta bread included in the meal. It's great place to go for a nice lunch when in SOuth Coast Plaza Mall

My friend and I have had lunch or dessert here many times and we've usually had a good experience. We came for dessert and coffee to celebrate my friend's birthday. The lava cake was delicious as usual but the service was poor and it was very noisy. We had to ask for fresh, hot coffee several times. It was during... More

I'm told that a hallmark of a good kitchen is its ability to create a dish for you that is not on the menu. Puttanesca is not on the menu, but theirs is better than any I've had in Italy. Also not on the menu is spinach steamed with garlic and lemon, which they do quite nicely. People with me... More

Lunch - pasta with sausage - almost neat cream. Barely edible after first two mouthfuls. Hearts of palm salad with sugared walnuts and a mountain of greens an insult to any one with taste buds. Service crash bang wallop. All at crazy prices. One to avoid i think.

When we go to South Coast Plaza, we enjoy eating lunch at Quattro Cafe. The service is excellent and the food delicious. We shared a prosciutto, cheese and grilled zucchini panini sandwich and a salad. They were both excellent, but it was too much food. We should have chosen a much smaller salad to share. We had the beef sirloin... More

This café is in an upscale mall and was a great surprise. I ate there twice on my trip. The wait staff was excellent. They were almost out of the wine that I ordered but gave me what was left and then I ordered a different glass. The food was excellent. The first meal I ate the Ravioli di Zucca... More

Both my husband and I have been to this restaurant numerous times and each time the food and service were excellent. It is evident that this restaurant prepares its food with fresh and high quality ingredients. To be able to go shopping at South Coast Plaza and enjoy an excellent meal at the same place is first class. The outstanding... More

We went for lunch at this establishment at South Coast Plaza in Costa Mesa. The food was very well prepared. The portion was rather larger than a normal Italian dish.The Bruschetta came with a well cooked filet mignon so combined with two large toasted topped with a big piece of mozzarella and chopped tomato, it can become a lunch by...
