Chicago Eat: Quartino

Quartino is an authentic Italian restaurant that offers great pizza, small plates (tapas-Italian style!), and lively wine bar. The place was awesome! I love the unique chairs and tables, the display kitchen, and the fun atmosphere. You would just feel so alive being among the crowd there! Great service and reasonable price. And you gotta love its slogan: "where the water cost more than the wine".. They do have lots of vino options for you, and it is served in a neat style. They make sure you are informed of their unique dining style and the concept of "sharing".

Though the place was quite loud and crowded, I thought it still offered the romantic ambiance in a way, from the candle on the table, the decor, and the dim lighting (which should explain my photography)... Well, I guess in a hip and trendy way.
