What You'll Get
Whether you're applying the law, studying the law, or breaking the law, you need to fuel up – and nothing is more nourishing than a fresh-from-the-oven, mouth-watering pizza. That’s why today’s deal - $5 for a $10 Groupon at Café Quattro – is so perfect for all of you hard-working lawyers, judges, and students out there. It’s also a fantastic deal for Bostonians who don’t quite fit into any of those categories, but who are looking for unpretentious Italian cuisine and caffeine.
Located at 4 Somerset St. in Beacon Hill, Café Quattro is just around the corner from the State House and up the street from Suffolk Superior Court and Suffolk University. Its menu offers an impressive variety of quality pizzas, paninis, wraps, subs and sandwiches made from only the freshest ingredients, as well as all your favorite coffee drinks. Bite into the Chicken Pesto Panini (grilled chicken marinated in basil pesto, topped with roasted red peppers and mozzarella cheese) and you will exclaim “Mamma Mia!” so loudly that someone will almost certainly shush you (unless you sing the words a la Freddie Mercury in “Bohemian Rhapsody,” because everyone loves that song). If vegetarian is more your moda, try the Caprese Wrap: fresh mozzarella, sliced tomatoes, baby salad greens, roasted red peppers, and red onion, drizzled with a tasty balsamic vinaigrette.
If pizza’s your thing, Café Quattro’s got you covered like a thick layer of mozzarella on a fresh slab of dough, yo. Try the Margherita (extra virgin olive oil, garlic, tomato, fresh basil, and mozzarella cheese) or get fancy with the Florentine (marinara, ricotta, mozzarella, spinach, black olives, and chopped tomatoes). And you can always add extra toppings.
Café Quattro’s 3.5-star rating on Yelp comes from the love showered upon it by its many fans, including these enthusiastic customers:
> * "...Quattro wins in the sandwich dept. It's a good place to meet with profs & friends - it has more space than some of the other delis around the Hill." -Lacey P., Boston
> * "I think this place is one of the better sandwich shops in the city. It is quick and conveniently located just off of Beacon st. If you are in this area it provides a nice option without going all the way down the hill. The chicken pesto is incredible and all of the wraps are awesome!" - Patrick K., Boston
> * "This place is great for a quick (huge) slice. I just tried their homemade meatball sub. Effin awesome. I felt like I was eating meatballs made in Grandma from Italy's kitchen. Some of the friendliest staff I've found in B'town so far." -Mike S., Canton
To clarify Mike S.’s point, -which is otherwise spot-on - Café Quattro’s meatballs are not actually made inside anybody’s Grandma, but in the Quattro kitchen. But don’t let that stop you from trying them: While we’re not sure anyone can become a Certified Meatball Specialist, Café Quattro’s expert cooks certainly could be granted honorary certificates.
Whether you’re a hungry advocate for justice, or a student on a budget, get today’s Groupon and give your taste buds a treat. A final hint: Make sure to warm up your vocal chords before crossing Café Quattro’s threshold, in case the whole restaurant breaks into song at some point during your meal.
