    This was the first time the four of us dined at Piccolo Sogno Due. We were all very pleased by the overall attention to detail from the service and food preparation to the wine recommendations. We will return, soon.

    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!

    Wild mushroom ravioli was delicious. Zucchini blossoms light and flavorful. We went with a larger group, and most people seemed quite happy with what they ordered, though the broccolini was incredibly bitter (almost inedible). Lovely dining room.

    Great food, good Italian wine selection, but on one of the hottest and most humid days so far the patio door was wide open and we felt as if we were eating in a sauna! Too hot to even consider coffee. Service a bit slow. It was way too hot and humid; this could have been much better if they shut the door! Too bad, as food was very good!

    We were recently here for the 2nd time this summer. Let me add that my partner and I had visited the original Piccolo where we had a superb experience. Like before, the service was wonderful, our waitress was charming and knowledgeable. The location is also very nice, although one can't compare the outside garden experience of the original. The food we all found just "ok." I had a tricolor pasta with seafood that was pleasant; no pizzazz and I could have gotten that pasta anywhere. My partner's pasta with wild boar was reminiscent of the wild boar we had in Tuscany, but it's heaviness was not balanced with the flavorful pasta. The tuna steak was very good. Noise level was too high, difficult to converse.

    We enjoyed the Chicago Gourmet menu. We had to request the special menu as it was not readily offered. The beet salad, salmon, ragu pasta, as well as the pistachio chocolate dessert were all very good. both of our 2 different red wines were way too warm as was an adjacent tables red wine. Unfortunately the tables are way to close and you hear everyone's conversations whether or not you want.

    The staff were wonderful, accommodating and did everything to ensure we were having a great experience. I love risotto and could not eat the one on special - the waitress' response was "what kind do you like?" And they made it - it was amazing. I told the hostess on the phone about my fiance's birthday and they brought his dessert with a candle and birthday plate, without any reminder from me while I was there. The only complaint is that all their tables for 2 are lined up next to each other, so there is not much privacy, and you get stuck with your neighbors conversation if there are any loud talkers. Overall - extremely pleased with our experience.

    Came to Piccolo Sogno on a Thursday night as a last minute reservation. We were immediately welcomed upon arrival. The wait staff was very friendly, answered all the questions we had about the menu and wine list. Our server recommended items on the menu which were amazing. The cocktails from the bar were perfect, the food was fresh and delicious. We will return soon. Do not miss the Antipasto Platter (made daily by the chef), the housemade breads & pastas, the Bransino, and the roasted beet salad!

    Party of 7- no one was satisfied with their meal. Either pasta cooked till it was mushy and stuck together, the tuna dish had no taste and tuna was NOT fresh. The servers were not attentive, we had to ask for a second drink, ask for water, bread and cheese! $400 plus for pasta and it was in edible !

    I would come back, but maybe not on a Saturday. Food was good, however too many selections involved seafood for my taste. This place was awfully noisy, no I wouldn't choose the for a romantic, intimate dinner; we really had to yell over the table to have any kind of conversation. Though it was extremely crowded, the servers kept up splendidly, and were very charming. Also it was fairly pricey. All in all a good experience.

Our food was fantastic - fried zuchinni blossoms, caprese salad, gnocchi - I can't even remember what all we got - it was all sooooo good. Dessert was also just wonderful - some old favorites and some new ones. The layered mouse was light and so good. Great coffees too. Love this place!

    My first time dining here. I had heard raves about Piccolo Due, and they were right! The food was delicious--very good quality ingredients. The Caprese Salad was the best I have eaten, probably because of the imported Buffalo Mozzarella. Service was great. Our waiter knew about the food and its preparation. Wonderful experience. I will definitely be back.

    I took a business associate from Denver to Piccolo on Tuesday night to give him a taste of Italian food Chicago style and Piccolo did not let me down. My associate was blown away by the grilled octopus appetizer and then couldn't believe the fluffy texture of the Turbot. Piccolo is a wonderful place to dine and I highly recommend it.

    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.
