Neighborhood ItalianI just moved to Chicago and have been looking for my "go to" Italian restaurant. At home in NY we have "our" restaurant that we know everyone that works there and we feel and are treated like family. I feel like I found that place in Dinotto. I will definitely be coming back here. The food was excellent and the choices were great.
Unfortunately it was too cold (even though it's May) to sit on their patio, but it looked amazing and like a little oasis in the city. I can't wait to come back in the warm weather.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMwe had a party of 8, celebratingwe had a party of 8, celebrating two birthdays.

However, our server was quick to suggest other similar entrees and ultimately had the kitchen prepare something similiar for me that was not on the menu. He was very professional and made my first dining experience here a very positive one. The food was delicious. Cute, quiet neighborhood spot. I will be back!4/11/2013 12:00:00 AMWe loved this place.

The only drawback, was that we still had to wait 15-20 mins for our table, even though I had made a reservation.3/2/2013 12:00:00 AMVery pleased diners!We had a wonderful birthday dinner for 9. The food was wonderful. We began with a variety of appetizers, they were great. We moved on to soups and salads, and they were great as well. The entrees were well prepared. We chose quite a variety of meat, pasta and seafood dishes, and we were all pleased. We also ordered a cake through the restaurant which was very nice, and the restaurant made sure they did a great job. The cake was beautiful and delicious. Our server was outstanding.11/17/2012 12:00:00 AM
