Great atmosphere, great wine, great food! I love how the restaurant strives to serve everything "family style." We came with a group of 12 and were able to try many different dishes. EVERYTHING was delicious! I love the atmosphere in the restaurant. They had some old black and white Italian movies playing on TV's. We will eat here again!

Food is served family style. All is good - we had pizza, salmon, gnocchi. They are very accommodating to my allergy. We had a nice private room.

Unfortunately, we chose a Saturday evening, but equally fortunately were able to get a table on the balcony. Internally, it is a very noisy restaurant! The menu is about sharing dishes with your table partners and excellent food it is too. Service was excellent as the food was reasonably priced.

Again we were recommended to eat here by the concierge at The Langham as a fun eating experience & again he was right.
Very buzy & buzzing with atmosphere so you need to talk loudly to be heard. The waiters all wear Italian Football shirts and are great at suggesting what to eat & how much to order, as you can always order more if you fancy it.
Great idea that works very well & gives great value. I can't understand why it hasn't received a higher rating on Trip Advisor, but as it was rammed full anyway it probably doesn't matter.

Just a short stroll from the Magnificent Mile off N Michigan, the place was overflowing for an early "5-ish" dinner on a breezy July 5 Saturday evening in Chicago. We had read all the reviews for perhaps more trendy Gold Coast Italian fine dining spots (even had a few reservations that we later released) and were glad we stumbled upon Quartino. The buzz, like the food was palatable and our hostess was able to escort us through the maze of happy diners to a flowery upstairs balcony seat overlooking busy State Street.
Our three course dinner featured the best, most tender calamari we have ever tasted, followed by the flavorful "Tagliatelle ala Bolognese" pasta course and the main "Veal Milanese". We topped that off with a carafe of sparkling Bellinis. There may be more "haute cuisine" Italian options but for we visiting Floridians, this was a tasty holiday spot that did not break the bank.
