A great spot for Roman Food in NYC, they should only to offer a better service and have a better wine list.

If I could give no stars I would.

The menu was completely inaccurate to what we actually got... Oven roasted lamb? Try bbqed lamb joints with NO meat on them, basically dog bones.

The salad leaves we're brown and shouldn't have been served.

I'm not a fussy eater but this was without a doubt the worst meal I've ever eaten.

The setting and recommendations had led us to hope for an absolute top quality local experience. The setting is good, and with such a beautiful evening, the restaurant looked the part with its frontage opened up to the elements. Intimate atmosphere, friendly service and well compiled menu. The starters were well presented and well seasoned or accompanied with tasty sauces. The pasta choices all standard choices and well cooked. The mains did disappoint. The Saltimbocca was presented in a very ordinary manner on a serving of mashed potato; a very dry dish. The rabbit "stew" was a good idea. The accompaniments were all fresh and well cooked, but the rabbit was served whole. In order to get to the meat (in a fiddly small rabbit), one had to remove all of the stew. It also meant that the meat had not really been cooked / mixed directly with sauces, reducing its flavour. I would not want to be too critical as this was a good meal. Just a little below the best local restaurants that we tried during the last week.

Stumbled onto this osteria while looking for something to eat before a movie at the Film Forum on West Houston. The person working at the ticket window suggested a French place on Bedford Street. We walked up W.Houston, made a sharp left at the corner, and walked down Bedford Street (these streets come to a sharp point). As we were walking down Bedord looking for this French joint, we found ourselves in front of this place. We looked at each other and said "we're Italian, we have to go to this Quinto Quarto place". The atmosphere is rustic and typical of Lazio and Toscana. Once in there, it's hard to believe NYC is outside and not a vineyard. Ordered oragne, fennel and olive salad, the spaghetti cacio e pepe (almost like a true carbonara), and then the abbachio arrosto (baby lamb). It was delicious. The food is very typical of Roma and similar in presentation and quality to the quaint places you find all over the country side from the outskirts of Roma to Pienza in Toscana. The service was great and quick. We had a great meal and made it back to the theater with time to spare. I'd like to get back there sometime soon. I wrote this review well after I ate at Quinto Quarto because I couldn't remember the name, had to look it up and online, and found some negative reviews that simply did sound like anything that I had seen or experienced while dining at Quinto Quarto. Some of those people who trashed the place should go back and give it a second change, Perhaps order something different.

There was a large group of us for a birthday dinner, they had a reserved table tucked away.. Quiet, perfect ambience.. loved it from the moment we entered. The waiter suggested a prix fixe menu which was 3 appetizers, 2 pastas and 1 main, all served family style. The portions were plentiful and absolutely delicious. We had the cured meats/ cheese platter, the artichoke salad and an eggplant dish for appetizers, all were exceptional. The spaghetti cacao & pepe was simple and perfect. There was also a pasta dish with squash- can't remember the name.. and for main course we got the chicken. Very authentic Italian food tucked away- great spot highly recommend!
