Had dinner here, great wine selection that would rival any restaurant in Italy. Ordered off the GF menu. Had strip steak with broccolini as an app that I shared with my hubs. Delicious and enjoyed by both of us. Had the sausage risotto as my entree and chocolate gelato with hazelnuts for dessert. Really good and no issues after.

I was here for an event with a pre-fixed menu. They let me order off the regular gluten free menu. The waiter didn’t seem very knowledgeable about cross contamination. I had seen previous reviews that their pastas were not safe, so I went with the porcini & truffle risotto. My NIMA sensor detected gluten in the dish.

They do have many gluten free options, so it’s possible some other dishes might be safer

I came here for a work function with a pre-arranged menu. I was asked the wait staff for gluten free options. They were very knowledgeable about what the options on the menu were GF and offered me delicious alternatives for any items that were not.

I stuck to naturally gluten free items and avoided the gluten free pasta as the potential for cross-contamination in the kitchen seemed too high. But they do have a lot of options on their GF menu. I enjoyed my meal and was not sick.

We ate here twice on our trip to Chicago. My 7 yr old celiac begged to come back. The GF menu is broad, all pasta sauces are GF. Tons of appetizers/salads/salami/cheese. No GF pizza is the only downside. Would eat here frequently if we lived here!

The staff were very friendly, and the food was incredible. Unfortunately, I got very sick after eating the gluten free Alfredo. I would steer clear if you have celiac like me.

Really good experience they have quite a few options. Did not get sick, however the restaurant encourages sharing, so this may best to go with friends and family who are open to also ordering gluten free.

Have dedicated GF menu. Everything I had was fantastic. Sliced prosciutto, roasted octopus, homemade GF fusilli with olive oil and arugula. Cross contamination in the kitchen would be my only worry, but had no issues. Very impressed. Place is a lot of fun, rowdy. Be sure to make reservations.

We had a great family meal at Quartino's. Our son is newly diagnosed as celiac and this was our first family vacation where he had to eat out 100% of time. Quartino's was great working with him on what he could order on the GF menu. He loved his meal. I would highly recommend Quartino's if you have a celiac in your party they did a great job explaining options and the non GF food was outstanding.

We enjoyed a delicious Italian meal here, family style. They brought out rice crackers instead of bread and the server was really on top of our celiac needs and checked a number of times with the kitchen. He ensured they boiled the pasta in separate water although I think this is standard protocol. Unfortunately none of the desserts are gf although they have sorbet. Overall a safe and great experience!

I have crohn's and I've found that gluten free food eases my symptoms. The food here was very tasty. I ordered the ribs, sautéed spinach, and chocolate gelato. The chocolate gelato wasn't on the gluten free menu, but the waiter said that it didn't have gluten. I'm not sure which of the foods I ate caused it, but I had a stomach ache afterwards.

I went here based off of reviews from another site. I am so glad I did!!! The gf fusilli was perfectly cooked and the vodka sauce made me want to lick the plate. I tried the duck prosciutto and another type of salami and again it was awesome!!! The manager checked on is three times to make sure we were happy. My 6 year olds were happy!

Great place! We just had wine and got a plate with cheese, meat, and little sides. They have a GF menu and it looked like they had good options for meals too. Everything was great and we were able to sit outside and people watch while enjoying the beautiful weather! Hope to go back for a meal next time we're in town!

We liked it so much the first time that we went back again two days later. I have celiac and safely enjoyed two fabulous meals.

The first visit was a snack, so we ordered a meat/cheese tray, which turned out to be enough for a meal. They put my gluten free crackers on the huge tray of delicious meats and brought my husband a plate of delicious bread on a separate plate. It was all simply perfect. Be sure and ask what other meats are available besides the ones on the extensive gluten free menu. There are several!

The next visit was gluten free pasta. The bartender/servers are crazy knowledgable about cross-contamination and assured me there was separate water and procedures for gluten free orders. My husband had the non-gf ravioli, and although it was his view of "traditional" ravioli smothered in red sauce, he said it was very good. I used the regular menu as inspiration for my gluten free pasta creation. Deeeelish!

No problems for two meals. We almost never eat at the same restaurant twice on a a trip. We just couldn't say no!!

Celiac family had a great experience here. The kids had pasta, while we had a diverse array of tapas. I loved the clams and vodka sauce. We had fondu and sorbet. The food was reasonably priced, but the wine I had was ok. The waiter was knowledgable, but the staff brought out gluten bread on our food twice. They took it back without complaint and appear to have gone through the trouble to remake each dish as requested. They comped our dessert, which was unnecessary. We were just happy they took us seriously.
