We were recommended to eat here by one of the staff from our hotel at Albergo Milano, the fact that Quatro Pass restaurant is literally 70 mtrs down the passageway of XX Septembre where both establishments are was a bonus. The food served lived up to the promise made by our hotel staff, we were not disappointed. The meals were... More

Our hotel made a reservation for us on a Friday night. We arrived and asked for a table outside (there are only four tables in front in the alleyway). They gladly told us a table was ready to pay so if we wanted to wait 3-4 mins they'd have one ready. We were seated soon after and presented with the... More

I can't believe some of the bad reviews I've read here, because we had two meals here and they were both excellent. We wouldn't have gone back if the food weren't exceptional. Yes, it can be crowded, because it's that good...you're not just going to be fighting fellow tourists for a table, because the locals know it as a special... More

Charming restaurant - outside seating is best. Reservations are good as it's very small and always full!

We were here on our second night in Italy and having flown form New Zealand the jet lag was still there. So while I am prepared to be leisurely over dinner, particularly when that tired, I get frustrated hone it takes 15 plus minutes to order drinks/get a menu and over half an hour to get the bill an day....

We were fortunate to get the last table, not having booked, and the staff seemed insufficient for the number of guests, but they nevertheless maintained a friendly and efficient service. The food was excellent and the prices reasonable. We would have liked to return but were never able to get a table on subsequent evenings.

I booked in the morning and when we arrived we were given a table in a mezzanine with Nigel ! I told them not to bother as I wanted to be in the restaurant, then it was a case of "sorry we are fully booked" okay , so we went to leave and there were 10 un occupied tables. The... More

Having access to great restaurants on Long Island and NYC, you tend to become spoiled. Well I have to say that Quatro Pass passed with flying colors. I had the veal milanese with a side of arugula and tomato salad - delicious. Their menu states homemade pasta, which I tasted and it was unbelievable. I think 5 of us had... More
