Quartino Ristorante

“Quartino, by far, has been our best restaurant dining experience with our 21 month old since her allergy diagnosis to peanut and egg. Our two waiters were very knowledgeable about what allergens were in the food. The manager came to our table twice. He said they take food allergies very seriously and their service tonight was stellar.”

RATED FOR: Peanuts, Eggs

“We were so happy with the service and food at Wildfire, we ate there two days in a row. I initially emailed then while looking for a nicer restaurant for a large group that could accommodate my daughters egg/pn/tn/ss allergy. I received a quick response with SEVERAL options for her to choose from. Once at the restaurant, the server knew from our reservation that we had food allergies and double checked my daughters entire order with the kitchen just to double check.”
