Dining room at Quartino, Chicago, IL

Quartino Restaurant Review

: The folks behind Gibsons Steakhouse have done it again with this comfortable, noisy, Italian small-plates concept. The group-friendly dining room, which is separated by archways and features hodgepodge table settings, fills with a professional, loft-dwelling crowd that heads straight for the in-house prepped salumeria selections (try the delicate ribbons of duck prosciutto and spicy sopressata); cheeses like Gorgonzola dolce make an appearance, too. A great stop when dining with friends and family alike, there are oodles of appealing choices, including several kinds of house-made pasta (linguine with clams, ravioli with braised pork and fava beans), garlicky white bean spread, pungent Italian cheese fondue and Neapolitan pizzas --- not to mention super-affordable carafes. Entrées range from beef short ribs to veal osso buco with gremolata.
