“Low-key traditional Italian restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 10, 2013

I first went to this classic Italian restaurant thirty years ago and it hasn't changed very much at all. The staff are professional and knowledgeable about the menu which includes an antipasti buffet, delicious carpaccio e grana, homemade pasta and a range of specials. The wine list is sold and well-priced. Quiet and romantic, with sidewalk tables available when the weather is warm.
Some things never change, yum...

“Great Gem in the City”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 13, 2012

Everything time we have friends in town we love to bring them to Quattro Gatti. The food is great and I love setting. The food is perfect portions and needed to wait for a table, but not a problem and wine was good. Will return!!

“Used to be good”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2012

I don't know what happened to the food but it's not what it used to be. A real shame as we used to love this place. Kept trying it and the food never got back to what it used to be.

“fine Italian fare on the UES”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2012

We've been to QG twice on our visits to NYC, (the city so nice they named it twice). The staff at QG is always so accommodating.. We asked for special preparations of some of their dishes and encountered no problems. Excellent wine list at really reasonable prices. And we asked for Zabiglione for dessert and they made an outstanding one, even though it wasn't on their menu. We'll continue to make them a regular stop.

“No cats, but plenty of good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 24, 2012

This is an old fashioned Italian restaurant with good food, large portions, very friendly service, strange paintings on the wall, and a fun and lively atmosphere. I don't know why it's called four cats, but I'm pretty sure that it has nothing to do with the food.
