Quartino Bottega Organica Restaurant Review

: Specializing in organic Italian food and wine, Quartino Bottega Organica is a 25-seat gem with healthy intentions. Its pastas, pizzas and breads are all made with whole-wheat flour. And most of the wines offered in those namesake quartinos (a little more than a glass) are made in the pesticide-free biodynamic style. The food is light on its toes from hors d’oeuvres through dessert. Whole-wheat ravioli are gently slicked with walnut cream, while risotto with asparagus and pumpkin isn’t bogged down with butter. Bright green Ligurian olive oil lends a fresh burst of flavor to just about every dish. The fish are wild, the greens greenmarket seasonal. Try the chocolate soufflé for an indulgence that’s the worth the wait and the calories.
