210 Best Italian Restaurants in Chicago

“This is my fourth time at Rose Mary and every experience has been exceptional. Went with a larger group this time (all new diners to the restaurant) and got to try more of the menu - zucchini fritters, duck sausage, skradin risotto, and rigatoni amatriciana were new to me and absolutely delicious. We ordered some favorites that are always on the menu, including the tuna crudo and cacio e pepe. We sat outside, the weather was gorgeous, and celebrated my parents' 39th anniversary. Thank you to team Rose Mary for such a great night!”

“Everything was excellent-hence the noise-lots of people make lots of noise. The food and service are outstanding. We had a shrimp appetizer and octopus which were perfectly spiced. Pork tenderloin was my favorite plus others had Bronzino, halibut and pasta-also matchless. I was unfamiliar with the Italian wines-we tried 3 different ones and all were fresh and delicious. We will definitely return .”

“While this was my 1st visit Riccardo’s Enoteca to celebrate a special occasion, it will not be my last!Hostess Jasmine and staff without exception were very friendly and customer focused. I am appreciative of their efforts to make me feel welcome to this cute Italian restauran. Jasmine made excellent recommendations for Italian wine which paired nicely with the meal.However, the star was the food! Being a fan of eggplant, I highly recommend the eggplant/zucchini appetizer which was cooked to perfection. For the main, I ordered the Amish Chicken Breast Milanese arugula with grape tomato’s and roast potato which was excellent but a very large portion. It was cooked to perfection.I saved room for the house made tiramisu which hit the spot with a cup of cafe American!I recommend dining early to avoid the crowds. There is also room at the bar to sit and dine. Give this place a try….you won’t be disappointed! ?”

“I went to Il Porcellino years ago and the Lasagna dish left a mark forever! While visiting Chicago I convinced my husband to come here to try the Lasagna. Sadly they changed the dish a bit and, while it's still incredible, it was not the same recipe! Do I recommend it? Yes. Do I miss the old recipe? Yes. Regardless, the food was incredible and we had a great time. Our waiter was absolutely impeccable and very very nice! We'll be back!!”

“I visited here alone and they gave me the table seat. I was worried because I saw a review there was a racism here, but I couldn't acknowledge that. The waiter was really nice, the whole employees cared me a lot.The steak was fantastic. It has been cooked what I expected, and the amount of the steak was enough for one person(might be too much for someone). The steak by itself was so good that I didn't even need a sauce. Not only just steak, the soup and appetizer bread was absolutely perfect. Had really great experience in Chicago thanks to Rosebud Steakhouse!”

“What a fun experience! The food servings are huge (especially the Grinder sandwich so you have to try this), the food is good, the tortoni (ice cream) is smooth and rum infused w flakes of graham cracker. And the mozzarella cheese is good and chewy and fresh. The bread for the grinder was tasty and soft and fluffy with sprinkled Italian like seasoning and cheese. The only thing was the bread got soggy with the sauce being in there when it was baked lightly crisp. The upside down pizza pot pie was fun to watch the waitress uncover it to cut in half. The 1/2 pound was enough for one hungry person but it didn’t have much filling in it but some cheese so I was a little disappointed as we got the meat sauce one and there were barely any meat pieces but the large mushrooms were good. It was loaded w cheese and the dough was fluffy and good. But I personally liked the grinder the best bc it had so much stuff and it was filling and I had 1/2 the grinder leftover for the next day. The vegetarian grinder was amazing. I would def return. Plus the food was not salty. I like that a lot.Parking: If you can find a spot on the street it’s free”

“I recently dined at Sapori Trattoria in Chicago, and it was an enchanting culinary experience. From the moment I walked in, the cozy ambiance and welcoming staff set the stage for a delightful evening.The menu at Sapori Trattoria is a celebration of authentic Italian flavors. I started with the Insalata Rustica, brussel sprout salad with parmesan baked bread crumbles, and dried cranberries. House-made buttermilk avocado dressing contains a touch of anchovy and Worcestershire. It was a perfect appetizer to whet the appetite.To keep things interesting, I opted to get the Charred Octupus, made with crispy artichokes, burnt lemon, dill, oregano, pickled and fresno chili. Just perfectoFor the main course, I indulged in their Pollo Ternana, and it did not disappoint. Chicken breast stuffed with smoked provolone, basil, mushrooms, asparagus, sun-dried tomatoes and pine nuts. Each bite was a burst of Italian comfort.The drink selection was extensive, and the knowledgeable staff helped me choose a perfect pairing for my meal. Their attention to detail and commitment to enhancing the dining experience were truly impressive.To cap off the evening, I enjoyed a decadent cacio e pepe cheesecake for dessert, which was a heavenly conclusion to an outstanding meal.Sapori Trattoria in Chicago is a hidden gem that transports you to the heart of Italy with its authentic cuisine and warm ambiance. Whether it's a romantic dinner or a special celebration, this restaurant is a must-visit for anyone seeking exceptional Italian fare in Chicago. I can't wait to return and explore more of their tantalizing menu.”

“I wanted to take a moment to share my heartfelt appreciation for the exceptional service we received from Ciccio Mio's server, Katie. She truly made our dining experience unforgettable by going above and beyond to ensure our satisfaction.Upon entering the restaurant, we were greeted by Katie's warm smile and genuine enthusiasm. What struck me the most was her remarkable ability to remember us from our last visit, making us feel like valued guests. Her attention to detail and personalized service created an atmosphere of familiarity and warmth that set the stage for a delightful evening.Now, let's talk about the food! Ciccio Mio's vodka rigatoni was an absolute masterpiece. The pasta was cooked to perfection, al dente and generously coated in a luscious vodka sauce that was rich, creamy, and bursting with flavor. The dish was beautifully presented, and each bite was a symphony of taste sensations that left us craving for more.And oh, the amaretto soft serve! It was a heavenly treat that captivated our taste buds. The smooth and velvety texture of the soft serve combined with the distinct flavor of amaretto created a dessert experience that was both indulgent and comforting. It was the perfect way to end our meal, leaving us with a sweet memory that lingered long after we left the restaurant.Throughout the evening, Katie's attentiveness was exceptional. She took the time to explain the menu, offered insightful recommendations, and ensured that all our needs were met. Her genuine passion for her work was evident, as she effortlessly guided us through the dining experience with a level of care and professionalism that is truly rare to find.Beyond the extraordinary food and remarkable service, the ambiance of Ciccio Mio was inviting and cozy. The attention to detail in the decor, combined with the warm lighting and comfortable seating, created an atmosphere that was both intimate and relaxing. It's a place where you can unwind, savor delicious food, and create cherished memories.In conclusion, Ciccio Mio, with the help of the incredible server Katie, has left an indelible mark on our hearts. The vodka rigatoni and amaretto soft serve were absolute delights that showcased the culinary expertise of the restaurant. But it was Katie's exceptional service, genuine warmth, and attention to detail that truly elevated our dining experience.

“This place was in very close walking distance from our hotel. Food was very good and generously portioned. The arugula salad was perfectly dressed and was covered with lots of cheese. Pizza was great - lots of mushrooms and prosciutto on top of a nicely charred crust. Don’t skip the gelato. They are one of a handful places serving Ichnusa beer. Ichnusa is imported from Sardinia and pairs well with the pizza.”

“Very upset that I've lived in the neighborhood this long and haven't tried this place out. Went here with my family Sunday at opening, staff right away took care of us, right away the floors were clean white as well as the wood tables. Jennifer our waitress came by to make sure we were filled up on drinks and bread. The bread is legit too, reminds me of growing up having it fresh every day. The staff was very understanding of my families dietary restrictions so they offered some veggie options for my family as well. I myself had the vodka rigatoni. First thing I'll say is the noodles have a nice thickness to them which immediately told me these were made in house, a lot of times with pasta noodles they just take on whatever flavor profile is in the sauce, this was the first time in a long time both the pasta and the sauce had their own distinct flavor that complemented each other. The sauce wasn't too creamy either it was just right for my liking.I also tried out the minestrone which comes in a large portion but wow is it packed with flavor. Safe to say I think my SO and I will be back soon to try out more options, but for our first time, wow this was exceptional!”

Drinks are fantastic, the tomaot sauce is as good as it gets. Simplicity and timeless classics all around, from the pasta dishes to the fantastic lamb chops. Did we mentioned the meat balls?

“This place is unreal. Only been here twice and I don't know why it took so long to revisit. Everyone's already told how great the food is so I don't need to (they're all correct). This is about the service, the only reason I've seen poor reviews...Old school good customer service is certainly hard to find nowadays, I'm the first to echo that. Yet, I also feel for the folks who work food service, especially when a place has listed a closing time and someone comes in a half hour before, expecting the world. Here's what happened today:Place closes at 4 now, I get there at 3:30 (humble, not expecting much will be left - there's one difference people), they were still full open, one couple ahead of me. I wanted a beef, not knowing if they'd still have any left (they did). The couple ahead of me wasn't from the area and ordered a bunch of food to eat in. To eat in! I would think they'd say no way but Nottoli set a place for them! As in, no rush! That's above and beyond in my book. I got my sandwich to go (best beef I've ever had, and will be back weekly to try everything, if the paycheck allows) and these folks were just sitting down.This place is one of the best I've ever been to (in the country!)! Every employee I've ever encountered has been nothing but polite and professional; again, way above and beyond!***Added to review, as I forgot to mention - the owners/operators respond to the reviews, all of them, INCLUDING the bad. Absolute professionalism, hands down, one of, if not the BEST businesses (food related or not) left in the country! Above and beyond! They actually CARE! All businesses could learn a thing or two from here!”

It was the hottest day of the year so it was a little toasty in the upstairs banquet room, but the wait staff was still so personable and friendly. They were genuinely happy for our newlyweds which was heart warming. The pasta, tiramisu, and wine selection were all fantastic. I would definitely return to try their regular menu when I am back in town. And if you are a fan of espresso martinis you better get you one because if not you are missing out.”

“What an amazing experience! ?I was treated to top-notch customer service at this gem of an Italian spot. From the moment we walked in, the staff was attentive and friendly.Now, onto the food adventure! I started with the Minestrone Soup, which was hearty and flavorful. My only wish was that it arrived a tad hotter, but that didn't spoil the fun. If you like it piping hot, don't hesitate to mention it when you order.Next up was the Spaghetti Frutti Di Mar, and oh boy, it was a seafood lover's dream come true! Picture spaghetti adorned with mussels, shrimp, and calamari – a true delight for the taste buds.But here's the best part – when they brought out the bread with garlic, I couldn't resist asking how to tackle it. The secret? Sprinkle Parmesan over the garlic, add a drizzle of olive oil, and use your fork to mash it all together. Voilà, instant garlic spread for your bread! Loved that touch.We dined al fresco, and it was nothing short of blissful. The weather was perfect, and even the chef himself made rounds to ensure everyone was relishing their meals.And let's not forget the generous portions – you'll likely be packing up some delicious leftovers for lunch the next day.In short, if you crave authentic Italian food, exceptional service, and a relaxed ambiance, this place is a must-visit. I know I'll be back after a long workday for another delightful Italian feast! ???I’m not good at remembering to take photos but I did take one.”

“Review is for dinner:Not the best italian food BUT that doesn’t mean it wasn’t good! I got the ravioli and my partner got one of the tortellini dishes. Her dish was definitely better but mine was decent as well. I would order something else next time, however. The sorbet was DELICIOUS.Came in without a reservation and got sat on the patio. Server was very nice and attentive. Atmosphere is very cozy and nice - almost as if your grandma turned her sunroom and patio into a nice dining area.Would go back and try something else - also sounds like the deli is excellent so need to try that as well!”

“My partner brought me here for my birthday and I had a wonderful experience. The main room is low lit and extremely beautiful— lovely art pieces on the walls, nice wallpaper, and well thought out statement pieces of art. Our waiter was extremely nice and gave us great recommendations for apps and entrees. We got the shrimp jovan and froi gras for apps, and the sea bass and lamb chops for entrees. Both the apps were delicious, but the shrimp jovan was especially incredible. The sea bass was definitely the highlight of my night, and my partner loved the lamb chops. For dessert, we got the chocolate pudding which was on the house and came with a little candle in it. It was very rich in a good way. Overall 10/10, would definitely recommend for a romantic evening!!”

“My wife and I were visiting family who live down the street from Tutto and they brought us here for dinner our last night. It was one of their favorite neighborhood restaurants and after eating here I could see why. The atmosphere was really great, made you feel like you were sitting inside an old school Italian joint. We sat outside on their patio, which was covered except for a short portion near the street, and the vibe was fantastic. The service itself was something to be desired but the food made up for the service lacking. I ordered the Pollo Vesuvio and it was insanely delicious. The flavors were all great and everything that came with the meal paired very well with each other. Everyone else’s order looked phenomenal as well. We can’t wait to visit again so we can come here for dinner one of the nights we’re in town!Kid-friendliness: We were with our niece and nephew and this was their favorite place to eat - so I would assume they’re somewhat kid friendly.”

“Ah, Coda di Volpe, where the ambiance subtly whispers "sophisticated Italian villa" and the food loudly proclaims, "Mamma mia, that's delicious!" Stepping into this establishment feels like being teleported straight to Italy, minus the jet lag and the over-enthusiastic street performers. It's as if Leonardo da Vinci and my Nonna had a decor battle, and both won.As for the food, each dish seemed to have graduated with honors from the University of Flavor Town. The pasta was so authentically Italian; I half expected it to break into an opera aria. And the pizza? Crispy, chewy, and with flavor that was out of this world.But the real star of the evening? Our waitress, Catie F. I haven't seen someone juggle plates, orders, and funny anecdotes quite like her. It's as if she trained at the Harvard School of Hospitality with a minor in acrobatics. She even remembered it was my birthday! Mamma mia!In conclusion, if you're seeking an Italian experience that’s a delightful blend of gastronomic brilliance and decor that tells a thousand tales, Coda di Volpe has you covered. And if you're lucky enough to be served by Catie F, well, brace yourself for service so good you might just attempt to say your gratitudes in Italian by the end of the night. Grazie mille, Coda di Volpe!”

As for the food the highlights were the fried calamari, steaks and Veal Marsala. All delicious. Sides and garbage salad all huge and great. For dessert we had our favorite, the spumoni. So you think it’s just ice cream what’s the big deal?Trust me, it’s amazing, made just for this great Chicago institution.

I was then seated right away as I waited on my guest to arrive. Once my guest arrived we were able to order drinks & an appetizer. The drinks and appetizer was great. After the first drink and bite, our waiter/bartender took our order and I requested a squid pasta seafood dish that's not on the menu (I don't even know the name of it but it was a suggestion by another patron) and it was amazing. Go get this dish....spicy and really made for two, but the clams, shrimp and lobster tail....chefs kiss ?”

“My recent dining experience at Trattoria Porretta Ristorante Pizzeria and Catering in Chicago was a true culinary delight, offering an authentic taste of Italy and an inviting ambiance that made me feel like I was dining in a traditional trattoria in the heart of Italy.Upon entering Trattoria Porretta, the warm and welcoming atmosphere immediately embraced me. The restaurant's charming decor, with rustic brick walls, Italian artwork, and soft lighting, created a cozy and inviting setting that set the stage for a memorable Italian dining experience.The menu at Trattoria Porretta featured a wide selection of classic Italian dishes, including mouthwatering pizzas and homemade pastas. After much contemplation, I decided to try their "Margherita Pizza" and their "Fettuccine Alfredo."”

“If you are a fan of classic italian dishes than this one is for you. Excellent pasta dishes that are true to their roots and executed perfectly. Each dish has only the freshest ingredients that are complimented by time tested recipes. The food and menu are flawless, which is also it’s weakness. At the high price points, one has to ask is a perfect cacio e pepe worth 26 dollars. (And I mean perfect…) I cannot answer that one for you, but I can say is that you will not have anything new or memorable at gioia. With exciting restaurants around the corner, (rosemary is croatian, but they share a border) Gioia feels like it is still stuck in the 90s. A safe solid spot in a very competitive market.”

“Go for the service, stay for the food and wine. Considering I arrived at 9:30 p.m. directly from the airport, when at that time I should have been on a flight to Indonesia, I was stressed. And that's why I took myself on a date and chose this place that I've long wanted to dine in. It was worth the wait. Michelle had me at hello, and she never stopped smiling, even if/when she thought she was out of the guest's purview. A warm, kind, and affable being, she epitomizes great service. Yes, the food was seductively delicious, the red wine she recommended on a chilly and rainy night was sublime, and the atmosphere was romantic. I loved that there was not loud music, in fact, I don't recall music at all. Many restaurants can offer all of this, if they wish, but they don't have Michelle. The winning formula of superb service, including the kitchen team who wasn't expecting anymore guests for the night and had shut down but fired things up to prepare my gnocchi and short rib dishes, the ambiance and the wine, makes this a 5 star. In fact, I was on my way back the next night to treat myself to wine and dessert, and hoping I'd have Michelle again as my server. But looking at the time of day and that I didn't make reservations, I thought better of the idea. Back to date night. To top it off, I met the most delightful and charming young couple, to whom I'm now connected. Overall, Indonesia will always be there, but there was only one date night like this night. And this is why I always yield to the command of the universe. I'll be back!”

“I love this place, and lucky for me it's right in my neighborhood. Old-school independently-owned restaraunt vibes...I've gone plenty of times and it's always the same bartender, host, server, etc. Food is incredible, my favorite was probably this pasta dish featured here (forget the name) or the winter salad, which is mixed greens, goat cheese, pear, balsamic, candied nuts...just incredible. Not a huge drinker but they have a full bar which you can also sit at if you want (tvs are there for sports, etc).Despite the TVs in the bar it still retains a very posh and intimate atmosphere. My only advice is bring your wallet and a sweater in case you get cold -- they keep it nice and cool for the workers who are always busting their butts while still remaining smiling and friendly.Parking: Easy peasy”

It will take approximately 45min for your deep dish to be madeIt’s a heavy pizza, I could only eat 2 slices.The best part, eating the leftover at the hotel the next day - it was the best thing ever!

“Came here while visiting Chicago. The service and atmosphere were good. Our server was attentive and the food arrived rather quickly for each course. There were a couple of standout dishes but most of them were just ok. The Squash Blossoms and Roman Artichokes were delicious and I would definitely recommend them. The Pizza A Metro was another very tasty and well executed dish. The rest of our food was fine but not really exceptional or worth going back for. The Cacio e Pepe while cooked well was underwhelming and not as flavorful as I was hoping for. The Porchetta was a bit dryer than expected. Overall, it was a good meal but I'm not sure if I would go back anytime soon.”

We started with the scallops which were a big hit followed by the tagliatelle bolognese and ravioli which were both good but weren’t life changing. The rabbit and polenta were excellent, but the truffle risotto was a let down, with only the taste of truffles and no other flavors really coming through. Also at least replace the nasty mirror in the bathroom for the prices they charge. Overall 4.2/5.”

We ordered the Blueberry Pecan Salad and a Large deep dish pizza with artichoke and canadian bacon to share among 4 people. The deep dish pizza here is noticeably better than the chain spots like Lou’s or Giordano’s, though it was still a little bland and could use a bit more flavor overall. The blueberry pecan salad was a huge highlight: the combination of crunchy and creamy textures of the nuts, cheese, and blueberries was very pleasant. The sweet dressing was a really great pairing to the nutty pecan flavor.The service here was really wonderful— our server was incredibly friendly and attentive throughout.

Service was absolutely perfect. Our server was so attentive and helpful. The ambience itself is a perfect neighborhood Italian place. The problem was just how incredibly loud the restaurant was. It wasn't music, it was just people. They desperately need more sound panels. We couldn't hear ourselves talk and felt like we had to rush through the dinner so we could go somewhere else to actually catch up. It's definitely a bummer, because we would definitely be back if we knew we could converse during our meal.”

“Hidden neighborhood gem. We have been here a few times and it’s consistently amazing. Delicious food and attentive service. It’s quiet and romantic. It’s also family friendly, I have seen families here with kids and the staff has been so accommodating and kind to family dining. Just order anything from the menu and you will be pleased. We LOVED our dinner. We ordered dessert but ate it before I could take a picture. So grateful we have this amazing restaurant in our neighborhood!”

“This place is a hidden gem in the city. Sorta off the beaten path, but if you're looking for great Italian Food consider it. The owner was super friendly and very charismatic, but the quick lunch they prepared was fantastic. We had heard from others that the Breaded Steak Sandwich was the best.., so I had to try it. The Breaded Steak Sandwich was off the charts good, the flavor of the sauce the crispy texture of the steak while still retaining it's tenderness, it was just a great sandwich. In my rankings the best Steak Sandwich in the city and surrounding suburbs. I will be coming for dinner as well because it has a cool little atmosphere plus a BYOB policy. Enjoy a GREAT ITALIAN dinner while enjoying your favorite bottle of wine as well, or your favorite beer. I look forward to having dinner here as well. 9.1 out of 10 for their breaded steak sandwich!~Apologies for no pic, it smelled so good, I ate it before snapping a quick pic. Reason for me to come back!”

“I was visiting Navy Pier when I came across this place and decided to give it a try. I tried their Italian Beef Samwitch and their Chicken Parmigiana Sandwich. The Italian Beef Samwitch was loading with beef and sauce but can get soggy very quickly. I really enjoyed their Chicken Parmigiana Sandwich. Both sandwiches came with two little potato wedges. There can be a bit of a wait especially for the Chicken Parmigiana Sandwich as it does need to be toasted in the oven. Also, this place is card only and they do charge a 3% credit card fee.”

“Since we were visiting Chicago we had to give this place a try! Do note that pizzas will take ~35 minutes to prepare so make sure to plan for this!Items we ordered as of 8/2023- Malnati Chicago Classic (Personal) - $14.89 - I really enjoyed this one. The patty is disc shaped and pressed into the pizza. Big fan of the crust! - The Lou - $15.09 - If you're not a sausage person then this is the one to get. Not too heavy and the garlic crust is delicious!- Caesar Salad - $10.59 - Pleasantly surprised with the quantity we got here for the price! Nothing special but the value is great. I'd get this again.Since we got the personal sizes there was no display of being served from a cast deep dish pan (You'd probably need to get at least a small to have this). If it wasn't for the fact we were eating all day I'd spring for a small size for sure!”

“I came here wanting the basics. You know like, mozzarella sticks, garlic bread, spaghetti & meat balls and Alfredo with a steak on the side. To my surprise they had none of that. However the kind waitress recommended other dishes and I was open to it. My son had the kids traditional spaghetti ? (didn’t come with meatballs) and I tried the Penne arrabbiata (spicy marinara garlic mostaccioli with sausage chucks). It was really good. Honestly, if I would have checked out the menu before coming in, I probably wouldn’t have stopped here. Only because, I really wanted some steak and cheese sticks lol but I’m glad I went in all gung-ho! It was a pleasant experience. The ambiance was peaceful, the waitress was super kind and the food was delicious.”

“My partner and I had a wonderful dinner on Friday night, August 25th. Unfortunately there was another couple there that night who made a scene because of the BYOB policy. The policy is posted on the front door before entering. The waiter reminded them of the policy and then they threw a fit, spoke down to the staff asking to speak to a manager and then the owner. They also threatened to leave a bad review. I think it's horrible for someone to try to hurt a small business because they didn't get their way. The staff was extremely professional and polite throughout the incident and apologized to my partner and I for witnessing the scene. The restaurant has nothing to apologize for. Their service and food is always fantastic!”

“I'm a bit embarrassed to admit this, so the last I was here was about 18 years ago. I liked the place then, but after today I'm in love with this place. It's come up so much and survived the recent "Trying Times." I had the regular size bread steak sandwich, get the value meal it is worth it. You get the sandwich (i got it with mozz and hot peppers), which was hefty, fries and a drink (I upgraded my drink to a large) for $20. F@#kin Delicious! They run a tight and well oiled ship. From when I ordered my food til I sat down, I think I waited 5 to 10 mins. Enough time for me get my utensils, napkins, straw and ketchup. The moderate lighting made feel comfortable. I was there about 40-45 minutes and I did not leave there hungry nor feel like I over paid for my food. Best $20 I have spent. And to think I was about double back on the place. Most go when in the area or should u want to visit a low key, comfortable joint with really good sandwiches. Highly Recommended! Great Job Ricobene's. Going back definitely.”

Both entrees we ordered (a pizza and ravioli) were amazing, though the ravioli portion is a bit small so it’s best ordered with some appetizers.We tried the focaccia with whipped ricotta as a starter and were not disappointed!Our food came out pretty quickly but with appetizers, mains, and a coffee to cap of the meal we stayed for around 90 minutes. Bathrooms are up several flights of stairs so be mindful when booking (call to ask about elevator, can’t remember seeing one).I’d happily be back again to try their menu. Based on the couple at the table next to me, sounds like they rotate their offerings.”

The lemon olive oil cake had a great texture and affogato was strong but delicious espresso.

Our group of three shared the kale salad, zucchini fritti, two pasta dishes and a pizza - it was more food than we could finish.

The pizza has a great taste and aroma, and the quality and quantity of the chicken used on the pizza is impressive. The only suggestion I would make is possibly a few less peppers in the tequila lime chicken pasta dish.

The host literally had to come take our plates away and go ask her to bring us the check because she wasn't even coming by. We did get a birthday dessert for my friend, which was nice, but once she finally brought the check, it wasn't even ours. When she brought the right one she just threw it on the table and said "my bad". Didn't even realize until after leaving that she didn't even subtract the deposit from the check. They also automatically add 20% gratuity, which is fine because that is what I always leave for a tip, but with the service we got, I would NOT have left that. Super disappointed with how we were treated, but would definitely love to have the food again.”

“The highlight of the visit is the food, the portions are very generous and the food is pretty good. Drinks were awesome I tried their and limoncello drink (forgot the name) besides that the service wasn’t first class, waiters weren’t 5 stars but they might be having a bad day.Wouldn’t say it’s a place I would frequent, but definitely enjoyed the food but not as highly rated as it wants to be”

“Overall good food, service, yet not for the atmosphere as it is too tiny. Restroom is ridiculous 60 stairs down in the basement !! That is terrible news for disabled customers !!There is a small outdoor patio which is nice for Summer.Best to order take away and not dine in !”

“I've been a customer at this excellent family restaurant for decades. The service staff is outstanding and friendly with familiar faces I've seen since the beginning. It says something about a business when employees stay on for so long. The food is amazing with excellent choices. I come here often for the family ambience and a good meal. Highly recommend!”

“Tried Aster Hall for the first time and it was great! For a Sunday it wasn't that busy and it was a great place to catch up with friends. The food didn't take long to come out and it was all super fresh. We got Small Cheval burgers and it was just as good as the normal storefront. Would definitely come again and try more restaurants!”

“Legit, some of the best pasta dishes I've ever had have been at Caro Mio. Fell in love with this place well over 10 years ago in their former location.Went back tonight at their new location with some friends of ours (also longtime fans). The vibe is very much the same; the food is still the same -- which is to say, spectacular!I challenge you to find anything on their menu that's not a home run. And if you want a "sure thing", try their gnocchi. You're welcome in advance... :-) Enjoy!”

“Rolled up to this place around 9:30 pm on a random Monday night, it was totally dead, only to be absolutely shocked at how delicious the pizza was. Highly recommend the BBQ pulled pork, cheddar and onion rings slice. The guy working the counter was super chill. Definitely gonna be coming back as a Wrigleyville local”

“I came here for the first time to study for my pharmacy test. Immediately, I was greeted with pure kindness and then I ordered a cappuccino. Unfortunately, I did not have cash, yet a kind gentleman offered to pay for me. I will be coming here frequently and will invite my family and friends as well.”

“My new favorite pizza place! Pizza metro’s thin crust pizza had amazing flavors and textures that left me utterly impressed. From the perfectly executed crust to the flavorful toppings, it was evident that every detail had been meticulously considered. Pizza metro not only has great pizza but there customer service is also excellent. For those seeking a flavorful and enjoyable pizza experience, this small restaurant certainly deserves a place on your culinary radar. Your taste buds will thank you.I got an all cheese, pineapple and jalapeño pizza. It was delicious and it was a fair price. I can’t wait to eat there pizza again!”

“This was our first visit here and knew nothing of the history or menu. The most exquisite, authentic meal I have had in I'm not sure how long! The Trial Fitta were a perfect start and we took our fill. The pasta was fresh, the sauces flavorful and light. I can't say enough good about it :) We will be visiting again. And the Cabernet Sauvignon from Chile... ??”

“This place was really cool. This is the type of bar you imagined as a kid but with awesome pizza. The owner was super friendly and fun. He had suggested to try this spicy honey on the pizza which sounded crazy, as he admitted, but was surprisingly delicious. We had a pepperoni and sausage pizza and two draft beers. The place was clean and couldn’t have been better.”

“The pizza is incredible, but I think pricing seemed quite odd, and a tad expensive. It was $19.95, and I paid about $24.48 after taxes. That doesn't seem right? MEAT LOVER'S PIZZA: There's about 8 slices, so can easily feed 2, but keep in mind that this is a thin crust pizza. This was recommended to me by the person who picked up the phone. Good portion of meat and definitely well seasoned and flavorful. Pro or Con depending on your preference: I prefer when I pick up a thin slice, that I can easily fold it or hold it up right without everything falling out. They did this well! If I'm in a crunch or really feeling meat loving, I'm probably going to come back.”

“I went here last week on a whim and what was such an unassuming location was some of the best pizza I’ve had in Chicago. The owner was working the wood fire oven and since the place was pretty quiet I chatted with him. He’s from Rome and if you dine in you can watch him shaping the clearly homemade dough. An absolute hidden gem.”

“We have been to Elina's several times, but were in for a group dining reservation last Friday. The ambiance, food, and experience were all exceptional. The price for a family style, price fixe menu felt reasonable. All of the food was spectacular, especially the rigatoni in vodka sauce and the eggplant parm. The staff was warm and accomodating - we had a few unforeseen changes to our reservation and they were very understanding. Highly recommend for a group experience!”
