    Great place for groups. Everything is good. Big fan of the sharing concept. Veal meatballs (feel guilty about this😢), pastas (pappardelle, gnocchi, linguine with clam sauce), gelatos... all so tasty!

    9 - Authentic Italian, and the first place I've found in America that has Sgroppinos! Has half plates of entrees to allow you to try even more!

    Lovely olive mix, veal meatballs are ok, the tortellini with ham and peas is wonderfully rich and the papparadelle is tasty. Zeppolles (pic) are light and fluffy w/ very delicious chocolate sauce.

    All yum! Just make sure to ask if Food is spicy if you are sensitive because lots of random chillies! Willing to do half portions of desserts which is so lovely and accommodating.

    Great atmosphere! Sinead was our bartender/server & was extremely helpful&friendly! Ordered cheese/charcuterie which was awesome. Dates and homemade pasta were amazing. And half priced wine to go!!!

    Food is served as it comes out, and dishes are meant for sharing. Ordering a few plates at a time is a good move (especially since service was so fast). Food was all good and staff was nice as well.

    Loved the family style dining. The food was wonderfully prepared as well as plentiful. We had the chicken and salmon and both were great. The staff was attentive and the Chef Coleta stopped by too.

    Me and my wife had a salad and a pepperoni pizza. Every thing was perfect 👌🏻 ideal for sharing. They have a very good wine selection too. Desserts looked good, but we were too full to try them.

    I have to go back! Loved the food and they are open late!! Their outdoor seating is adorable and it looks like it has an upper level outside! For me that is something I must go back to experience!

    Great food and wine at a fair price. Sausage pizza was light and non-filling. Very addicting without putting you into a food coma. 10/10 would pizza again.

    Loved the Pene alla Vodka. One of the best I've had. The porcino and truffle rissoto was good and the chocolate cake was sooo delicious. The ocopus was ok and the veal sliders were not bad either.

    My deep affection for this place will never end. Do not skip out on the house made goat cheese ricotta tangerine arugula salad. Amaze. Also the Fumo Negli Occhi pizza is out of this world. So tasty!

    The service was excellent. I had the best fettuccine di mare with Parma martini, grilled octopus, and caprise salad. The portions just right and the items shareable. I'd recommend this place forever.

    Literally love this place. Staff is knowledgable and very kind. Gets busy and loud. Kitchen is open until 1:00 am, but the cut off is strictly 15 minutes before. Otherwise open until 3!

    House red is so great. Some of my faves: white bean spread, asparagus risotto, orrechiette, pappardelle, romaine hearts. Great service, very reasonable prices.

    Great food with a great view. VERY touristy and can be packed on the weekends. Nice wine selection and the Funghi Pizza was pretty standard, lacked salt though

    excellent place to hace a dinner, there is a good balance between price, taste and excellent and fast service. Since it is very crowded it is a bit noisy

    Best cheap eat in RivNo. Neapolitan pizzas, veal meatballs w raisins, salumeria tasting, pappardelle pasta are spot on. Bring a group and share everything.

    While Quartino is more of an Italian Restaurant, it is an amazing one at that! Ask your waiter which wines to pair with their melt in your mouth Food!

    Penne alla Vodka all the way, I get it every time! For desserts, coppa al banana, the chocolate cake, the zeppole or the gelato - all are great with their coffee. But really, everything is delicioso!

    A much classier option for your late night out case of the munchies than Rock n Roll McD's. Serves thin crust pizza only after a certain hour. Buttery thin crust > mystery meat chicken nuggets.

    Almost all menu items are offered as half orders. They're small! Order many and sample many flavors without filling up!

    Literally can't go wrong with anything here. Classic, unpretentious Italian. Try the veal meatballs, fettuccine alfredo, and the funghi pizza.

    Tables are called verbally in lobby, making it a crowded place as folks wait. A pager system would do this place wonders. Once you are seated try the sprout salad.

    The Gibsons folks go rustic Italian with this cavernous dining room decked out with reclaimed wood and subway tiles, vintage mirrors and mismatched chairs. Read more

    Great place for groups. Cheap wine, small plates (try the veal meatball sliders), tasty pizzas, and great atmosphere (opt for eating in the bar over the dining room, unless you've got a big group).

    Aw yeah. The tagliatelle puts happiness in your belly. The fresh pastas are all good, as is the diverse red wine list, but the pizzas aren't special.

    Steer your eyes to the bottom right corner of the menu (if you can make it beyond the pasta)....the Tagliata Di Manzo is fantastic.

    Broccoli Rabe is amazing. Make sure it's one of the small plates you have them bring out. I'd post a pic, but it's already gone!
