Designed to share, the small plates at Quartino are reasonably priced (around $10 each), making it a popular spot for group dinners. Although the interior feels more like a neighborhood deli with hanging meats and glass display cases, the outdoor patio is a comfortable spot to dine. Chef and partner John Coletta delights diners with his Italian fare that includes home cured salumi, homemade pasta, and crisp, stone-oven-baked Neapolitan pizzas. The restaurant offers 30 handpicked wines from all regions of Italy that are served by the carafe.
