Diner Reviews
  • "This is the third time I've been here and I have to say it's the best Italian restaurant in Chicago! I also love that you can get half portions of pasta. Special mention of the fetuccini with veal ragu. The pasta is homemade and perfectly cooked al dente. Also loved the seafood appetizer with clams, mussels, shrimp and octopus. Simply outstanding. Can't wait to go back again."

  • "We brought two more couples to dine with us this time and they loved it too. It is one of our favorite restaurants in the downtown Chicago area and we will continue to return and bring more friends."

  • "We had an absolutely wonderful first time!! It truly was a little dream of a restaurant. Great food and service. You won't be disappointed if you get the boar ragu!! Delish!! Could have used some lighter pasta options for those who don't want heavy sauces. Nice attention to detail from all the staff."

  • "The food at Picolo Sogno Due is as excellent as the original and the service is always flawless. I've had never had anything off the menu or specials that I would not reorder or hesitate to recommend. This spot is great for a business lunch or dinner, a night out with the girls or a date night. Regardless of the occasion the servers will make you feel as if you're their only table and never be overbearing. Their recommendations are spot on and the sommelier is wonderful as well."

  • "Food was excellent. Raviola and Timballo Appetizers were very good especially if together and shared! The Branzino entrée was superb but the Halibut was perhaps a bit strange.The Fregola as a side dish was very good. Service from Maribel was second to none: Professional yet very personable. Piccolo Sogno Due is definitely a keeper!"

  • "If you are an Olive Garden food fan, this place is not for you. Food is well prepared dish by dish, hence the flavors of the authentic Italian cuisine are preserved. You can notice the quality of the food in the taste of every bite. Service is also quite good. Servers and staff are kind and always ready to get what you need promptly. I had a great experience."

  • "We met friends for dinner. Our bartender was fantastic. He helped us pick a bottle of wine and decanted and brought tovthe table. It was a new bottle that the restaurant had just started carrying. Delicious. Recommendations for for entree choices were perfect. Loved this place. Will definately return."

  • "My wife and I visited Chicago for 4 days and this one was on our short list. Arrived on time and seated immediately at an excellent four top. Pasta dishes were very well prepared and seasoning was balanced (not too salty or too bland). We had tasty ucchini blossoms to start. Best Italian food outside of Badia a Coltibuono! Excellent and well-priced wine list. Hosts and servers were gracious and friendly. Very comfortable and room noise was moderate. Recommend highly."

  • "Although we had to wait a while for our table (which may have been due to outdoor diners coming inside due to rain) the maitre d, comped us with a pizza appetizer, which was delicious. MY wife then had a salad and I had minestrone soup. bother we tasty. My wife ordered a pasta dish with an Alfredo sauce and mushrooms, which was full of flavor. I had monkfish, which is hard to find but one of my favorites. It was delicately cooked with a light sauce with did not mask the flavor of the fish. I especially liked the aged balsamic vinegar, thick and bursting with flavor which accompanied the varied bread basket. Prices are downtown prices, but the quality made it worth the cost."

  • "Loved our evening at Piccolo Sogno Due! Interior is beautiful with ambiance that makes you feel like you are dining with family. Great place for business dinner or out with friends and family! Service was attentive and not rushed. We enjoyed dining outside which has been decorated beautifully with an awning overhead and plants and flowers which gives the feeling of being in a garden. Noise level was unnoticeable since we were seated away from the street. We shared 2 entrees the sea bass special for the evening and ravioli on the menu. The fish was prepared whole and presented to us at the table before they took it back to the kitchen to debone and plate. The ravioli was excellent and we both agreed we would order it again."

  • "We were pleased that it was a quiet evening so we could talk with our friends. The food was very disappointing, particularly the grilled calamari salad. The calamari was more braised then grilled and therefore very chewy. It was awful and the waiter defended that it was ok. Well, it wasn't. The pasta neri was awful, not as the menu described. Also, the waiter was difficult to understand and didn't seem interested in being helpful. The bread pudding looked like toasted croutons. Seemed very off the night we were there. The host/manager was uninterested in seeing how things were. I will never go back."

  • "This was our 5th dining experience at Piccolo Sogno Due and we were as delighted as on our first dinner here. Everything works together to make it a perfect dining experience. The warm welcome, the ambience of the room, the helpful and friendly waitstaff and of course the delicious food of creative preparations and served with grace and style. We certainly will return for a 6th dinner."

  • "I ate here on a Saturday night and the staff kept rushing our my date and wanted to take our food. Plus the staff addressed us in Spanish the entire night. The minute we received our food they wanted to take it away and told us to hurry up because they are closing soon. Food was great service was very poor and the staff is rude."

  • "Group of 6 for my birthday. Seated right away, unsmiling server took drinks order then another much nicer server seemed to take over dinner from there. Food was adequate but nothing memorable, my monkfish was bland and no one else had compliments for the food. Good wine choices. Very loud restaurant, it's small and gets loud very quickly as it fills up. Nice table seating on sidewalk along Clark (west side so no afternoon sun). It was a decent enough place for a meal but between uninspired food and the noise level, I don't expect to return."

  • "This sister to Piccolo Sogno offers similarly good Italian fare. It is a solid experience - not gaudy or over the top, and nicely conversation-friendly. As expected - the wine list, while generous, is very pricey."

  • "Either of the Piccolo Sogno restaurants are fabulous for people who enjoy real Italian. I have receommended this to people from a small town, who were expecting Pizza Hut style pizza & spaghetti with meat balls. Probably should've sent them to Lou's. For everyone else, it's amazing! The wait staff are mostly Italians who know all about the menu & wine list, have great suggestions and are exceptionally attentive."

  • "This place keep impressing me for it's food, wine and service. The waiters and matre'd make you feel special and comfortable. We had the boars ragu dish again, started with stuffed dandoline flower appitizers. The wine list is excellent, definately over priced, but excellent. I'd love to visit on a non special occasion to relax a it more and just enjoy the food and service."

  • "This is one of my favorite places. I eat there at least once or twice a month. Food is constantly good. However on this night the service was a little underwhelming. However, when I made a poor wine choice the manager picked out a better one for us. Very nice touch."

  • "Waited 45 minutes past our reservation because customers stayed 2 1/2 hours sitting outside. Would have been nice if manager had ask them to move to the bar instead of waiting 45 minutes AFTER they had paid their bill. The bar was small and crowded - not a good place to be standing waiting for a table. Even after waiting no one offered us a free cocktail, appetizer or dessert. The gnocchi was delicious, but the pulpo (octopus) was over-cooked; burned on the ends. Our waiter and the bus boys were very attentive. Maybe it was just an inexperienced management that night, but I think I would rather try the other Piccolo to see if the experience could be improved."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "This place really deserves to be far more crowded. Maybe we went on a slow night. The food and service are spectacular. And an unexpected feature is the awesome outdoor seating they have. It's not at street level, so you don't feel like you are sharing your table with expectorating passer-bys. Will be back soon. "

  • "We had guests from out of town and they remarked it was the best Italian food they had ever had. The polpo appetizer was tender and fantastic, all the pastas entrees were delicious and the halibut was flaky and moist. Leave room for the cannoli and tiramisu."

  • "Piccolo Sogno Due is one of the best restaurants in Chicago! The food is amazing- especially if you like outstanding vegetarian preparations, pasta and seafood. In particular the eggplant timbale and the beet salad are wonderful and the biscotti are a perfect ending. I have had a number of great pasta dishes and grilled tuna as well. The interior is beautiful and the service is excellent. "
