Quattro at Whistler Restaurant Review: Antonio Corsi treats diners like family in his warm and intimate Italian restaurant. Cozy fireplaces and an open kitchen set the stage. The signature experience is the antipasto platter ($18 per person) featuring no fewer than a dozen choice items that range from grilled radicchio bocconcini, succulent prawns and Dungeness crab, to grilled calamari steak. Pastas are well-balanced; order spaghetti pescatore with prawns, scallops, clams, fresh herbs, tomato and white wine, or try the garlicky spaghetti Quattro, playfully tagged “for Italians only.” Chef Jeremie Trottier's five-course L’abbuffata menu is a true Roman feast for two or more persons. Pistachio-crusted sea bass and the lamb rack with a Dijon mustard crust, thyme and fig succo are also noteworthy. Sweet endings include a classic tiramisu or Italian cheese plate. Quattro’s wine list dabbles in the world’s biggest reds, mostly from Italy and California. Finish with an artisan vin santo with biscotti for dipping. Service is always discreet and attentive.
