This is a fantastic, casual place. Never disappoints and we've eaten here many many times. The shrimp risotto is a must. Interesting wine selections and good beers. Its always fun and lively, crowded even late at night. They do a nice job with everything.

We got recommendations from the concierge, we read rave reviews in hotel magazines, we checked out internet reviews and finally headed to this place. It is attractive, well located, has plenty of atmosphere, maybe a little too noisy but that's ok. The "small plate" sharing is in effect. As if you were in a Tapas place. We ordered basic pasta (the "spaghetti meat ball" type) and salad. If Quartino thought they would have us in there for multiple servings, it didn't work, because the portions were so big we were stuffed in a minute. Tasted a notch better than in boarding school. But the accent was on service, quick service, impressive service. The food came within two minutes, hot and fresh from the kitchen. But that wouldn't be our first choice next time.

Are you serious? I always assume a wine bar is serious place to check out a large menu of wines. This place has a very average wine list. About what you'd find at one of the big chains. And if you're serious about food, skip this place. I had a pasta plate of "chicken & broccoli in a cream sauce" and it was god-awful. I mean really bad. No flavor at all. In summary, only go here if you're desperate and nothing else is open. Don't be fooled by the fact that it appears to be full; they're tourists like me and I'm gonna guess that none of them will come back.

We usually go there as it's super close to home. I love the pizzas and the pasta they have!! It's also great for groups, you can share plates and try a lot of different thinks. To star, they have an amazing cheese fondue. It could get a bit noisy, that's the only negative thing
