I’ll keep it 5/5 but in all honesty it’d be a 4/5. I don’t want to lower their rating, but I’ll share my only complain.We got 3 appetizers, and 2 entrees. The bill was $150 for two people, and we still felt a bit hungry after we left.The food was great, but one raviolli for $28? I expected a larger dish.The sizes are not ideal, especially considering how cheap fresh pasta can be. I understand the skewers being small, wagyu is not cheap. But a raviolli? Come on guys.
The food is a fantastic. Killer. Things that are hard to make like running egg yolks in pasta are perfect every time. So on and so forth. Just delicious.

One of the best dining experience I've had in Chicago. The ambiance was great, the service was great, and all of the food was delicious. Three of us went for restaurant week so we got to try the whole menu and I'd order all 10 dishes again. My favorite was the hand cut tagliatelle.
Where do I start. We did three pastas and they were all so amazing! The potato filled pasta was incredible. It is light and vibrant inside the place. We had 11:30 reservations and sat right away and she paced out our dishes. Just a fantastic experience.

Very trendy place in trendy West Loop. While the energy and service in this place outstanding, it is hard to say its food lived up to the hype. At this price point with this level of popularity, the expectation was high. While stuffed cabbage was interesting, egg yolk ravioli was not. One should not walk away with “it was OK” impression when dropping over $200 on dinner for two.
Love this place!
I recently had the Chicago Restaurant Week dinner special that was a delicious value for this caliber of dining. The selections offered had a nice variety of choices and the dessert meringue cookies were just divine!
Amazing dining experience. Food and drinks are good. The customer service is great. We went for the Chicago restaurant week. The portion of food is so worthy and you get chance to try different dishes.
Incredible dining experience! Our reservation just so happened to occur during Chicago restaurant week, the food and pricing was very worth it! Our server Dave helped us navigate the menu and was very attentive throughout the whole dinner! From the hostess, to the food runners everyone was so nice and helpful. Every dish we ordered could not be any better, so much flavor and very delicious. Would definitely recommend this place to anyone!
The food is delicious and thoughtful. The staff is attentive, but not always there, which is ideal for me.The room is a bit west loop, but it didn't feel fake or overdone.This place felt inviting, warm and casual somehow.i loved itThe worst part is that they have this mirror, on the Eastside of the main room, so clean you think the space is twice as large.Also they didn't sell prosciutto butter.
it’s hard to live up to any hype, but this place really missed the mark. Maybe I have high standards because I lived in Italy for a year, but imo Arancini was very salty, egg yolk ravioli, squash dish, crostino, chicken & affogato were very underwhelming. The stuffed cabbage and piña colada are worth a try if you do decide to come here.
Wow, 4 of us enjoyed the most perfect meal last evening at Monteverde! Everything was amazing, especially the Wagyu skewers and roasted cauliflower starters, and the mushroom ravioli (insanely great flavor and texture combo), Pomodoro pasta (we added a side of two big meatballs!) and NY strip (medium rare)! Topped off with the most excellent service from Katie, who was friendly, helpful and offered the perfect level of attentiveness! Truly a gem of a restaurant!!

Super late review. But seeing them on the restaurant week list brought back memories. What can I say but Wow!Everything was excellent. Went in for my birthday in July and sat on the back wall. I wanted to sit in front of the pasta station with the mirror but I'm glad we didn't. Got to see chef Sarah run the kitchen. She even got word it was my birthday and served us our plates personally. She such a sweetheart. Knew how much I wanted to see the pasta being made. So she had her sous chef take me around back and to meet the ladies making the fresh pasta. Such a delight!!I'll be coming back as this is my new restaurant to celebrate my birthday from now on. Next time I will be ordering several of the best meatballs in the city just for myself.
