Diner Reviews
  • "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."

  • "Antipasta plate and fish dishes were excellent. Pizza was good but not great. Would definitely go again."

  • "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."

  • "A friend and I met here for dinner and it was very enjoyable. Food is very good and portions are not humongous, yet I still did not quite finish my gnocchi. The service was excellent and we were not rushed, though the restaurant looked full. I would definitely recommend and will return."

  • "Good but not quite up to the excellence of the namesake Piccolo Sogno on Milwaukee Avenue. Not anything in particular to criticize... nor praise. Outdoor patio is pleasant... when air conditioning unit of building across the street isn't at full roar."

  • "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!"

  • "First of all we had requested an outdoor table and that was honored without hesitation, the manager seated us and was so nice and friendly as were all the hosts, waiters, etc...We selected an antipasti tray and it was diverse as it was delicious, it had wonderful cheeses, artichokes, peppers, and so on, I selected as my main course lamb loin and it was tender and juicy so wonderful, our server was so attentive, we just had a great dining experience..."

  • "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 !"

  • "My third visit to duo (once at uno). We had a party of six with four out of towners. Everyone enjoyed their salads and pasta or fish dishes. Service was efficient and professional. Its pricey but a good spot for an evening out."

  • "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."

  • "It was hard to decide what to get, everything looked so good. 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."

  • "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."
