    When making reservations, be sure to request a table that is not on the side patio. It overlooks a junky parking lot. Great ambiance indoors, though.

    A good friend whomis an expert on Chicago restaurants recommended we try Piccolo Sogna Due and we are so glad she did! We made reservations a week in advance, were greeted immediately and courteously at the door, were seated in minutes, and treated to wonderful service and food that was eaten first with our eyes! Exquisite and delicious!

    My iPhone decibel meter was near 100db most of the evening. Granted, it was Friday night, and granted that we had one of the quietest tables in the room [SE corner], and granted that a sound engineer has installed sound-absorbing material on the ceiling, but nevertheless, this place needs to do more to create a pleasant place to dine with friends and have a conversation without straining to hear one another and without shouting. The food generally has always been excellent, but we had a dish arrive cold. We had to summon our waiter at several times to order bread, drinks, dessert and coffee [OK, it was Friday night at 8:00]. We brought friends here for their first visit, and they would not return; we will but not weekends.

    On our last visit, PSD was very busy. It was a sharp decline in quality from previous experiences. So my pizza arrived with my entree, and none of the entrees in our party of 4 was better than fair. A note about terrace seating: one can smell garbage from the alley below.

    As usual, a great dining experience. The five of us all had different and great tasting pasta and seafood dishes. Great service and most accommodating. Leonardo was our waitperson. He asked if there were any food allergies. Everyone said no. I neglected to say anything about my asparagus problem. When my risotto arrived, I noticed there was asparagus in it. My wife and I were ready to switch when Leonardo said he would take it back to the kitchen to prepare it without the asparagus. I told him it was not necessary, but he was insistent on making my order correct. A few minutes later, my delicious risotto was returned - without the asparagus. A place where you do not have to yell across the table to be heard!! No disappointments.

    We recommend this restaurant unconditionally, and especially the papardelle with wild boar sauce. My wife said that her minestrone was the best she'd had in at least 10 years. Great food, great service, and great value. What more can you want?

    Went to dine on pasta before the Chicago marathon. Enjoyed the ambiance, just slightly surprised at how fast our meal came out. We skipped the wine and appetizers before the big run..but I didn't even have time to pour olive oil to enjoy the bread before we were served our main course. The service was excellent but the speed felt like we were at a fast food restaurant. Seated, ordered, ate and left within 35 minutes.

    Had a birthday dinner for four on the Friday night before the Chicago Marathon. Very crowded with a substantial noise level. However we were seated right away and we had no issues in having conversations. The service was truly outstanding, on one dish we requested if the beets from a different dish could be added to the one ordered and they were very accommodating. We had also told them we liked to share both appetizers and entrees and they made that easy to accomplish and enjoy. This was probably our fourth time here and we always love the extensive wine list, and the waiters ability to talk about the wines with knowledge and patience. All in all once again a lovely evening.

    All was delicious. Piccolo was hopping with hungry people all enjoying themselves. We loved the fresh and colorful beet salad with hazelnuts and dots of chevre. In an unusual move, we based our orders on what our neighbors were eating since the scent was heavenly: roast Amish chicken atop polenta with mushrooms. The chicken was both tasty and tender, the polenta comforting. The pappardelle with wild boar ragu was delicious and rich. Other temptations line the menu such as a timbale of eggplant, roasted prawns, and a variety of pastas to be tried on other visits.

    We had been to the Farmers Market in downtown Chicago & we pleased to see so much of the seasonal produce on the menu that night-all of it expert;y prepared & presented. The lamb entree was a delicious double chop but the accompanying slow cooked piece of lamb shoulder was a revelation. It was easily the best lamb I've ever had. Great pastas go without saying. Our new Chicago favorite.

    Pre-theater dinner handled with aplomb, as usual. Two reasons for 4 rather than 5 stars: 1. Ambient noise, even at 6:00p.m. on a weeknight rendered cross-table conversation difficult 2. solely Latin waitstaff in an ethnic Italian restaurant is simply unacceptable! Staff is perfectly trained, and understands and responds to most requests and questions posed in Italian. However, an establishment of this nature needs to present waitstaff fluent in the language. Food and its preparation and presentation are otherwise impeccable at this location as well as the original Piccolo Sogno. Please add either restaurant to your 'must dine at' list.

    I ate at Piccolo Sogno Due last Sunday with a few business partners and their wives. Most of the diners at our table weren't necessarily adventurous eaters so I knew that I needed to find a restaurant that would please the crowd, but also offer a special experience. Piccolo Sogno Due did the job perfectly! And our waiter - wow! He was fantastic!

    The appetizers were great - Especially the Burrata and Timballo! My wife had the ravioli - the pasta was cooked perfectly.... I had the fish (turbot) special. This was very disappointing. The fish was cooked perfectly, however the sauce (sweet/sour) did not complement it well - well over powering and far too saucy. The waitress already had had complaints of this dish.

    This is a lovely restaurant with excellent food and wine and superb service. We received wonderful recommendations from the waiter for our wine - 2 beautiful ripasso wines. We started with a shared antipasto plate which had a delicious variety of meat, cheese and vegetables with a choice of breads and olive oil and balsamic vinegar available. I got the linguine with clams and loved it. My husband got the mini ravioli and he raved over it. Our friends got the swordfish and the pork and there was not much left on their plates afterwards. Dessert and coffee left us all sated and happy when we left. Definitely would recommend this excellent Italian spot. We did not sit out on the patio, but it seemed to be a popular area.

    I've had a disappointing meal at Piccolo Sogno now my first trip to Due was very similar. My salad was great, but my main, Prawns, overcooked and fishy tasting. My lunch companion had the linguini with clams and she said it was very good. I thought the restaurant had a nice feel to it and the service was good.

    The reviews led me to have high expectations that were unfulfilled. An antipasta of mixed vegetables needed salt and oil to move beyond blandness.We ordered two pastas. One, an eggplant stuffed ravioli, was tough due to undercooking and its sauce was imbalanced and not as good as that in in local pizza joint. The second, linguine with clams, artichokes and bottarga, was missing the bottarga and most of the expected flavor. Service was attentive, sometimes overly so. It seems the waitstaff had little to do, so they were by the table repeatly.

    Another great meal at Piccolo Sogno Due. Tony and Ciro know how to create delicious, approachable restaurants with an emphasis on great service and food. I'm not sure anyone could be more freindly than this crew. This time I tried the kale salad with parmesan dressing. The portion size was generous and the flavors amazing. Frankly, I keep thinking about this salad. I went very pure for a main course and ordered gnocchi. As usual this dish always impresses. My collegue ordered a salmon salad. She eats at Pccolo Sogno Due frequently and this is her favorite dish. Looking forward to coming back soon.

    Met a friend for a birthday lunch and having had been here for dinner, I expected the food and service to be great. What I didn't realize was that, for 2 people, we'd be seated on the banquette, wedged between two other tables. Unfortunately, the man to my right was a very loud talker and that made our lunch very annoying. While we might have asked to move, I figured that if they had a better table they would have given it to us (I'm not going to presume they gave us that table just because we were 2 women), but beware if you're a party of 2. Food was great, service was great, but for a lunch in the loop area I'll stick with 312 because of the spaciousness.

    We live in the South Loop and dine out often. Piccolo Sogno Due is our new favorite restaurant. We love fish and there are ao many options. The Branzino was fantastic. The chef's selection antipasto was a real treat. They have a great wine selection. And the dessert - oh, my! To top it off, the meal was quite reasonable for a meal of this caliber. Great service, food, and wine. A winner!
