A word from Prosecco
Prosecco, in the heart of the River North Gallery District, is a chic, yet welcoming restaurant serving comfort foods from all 20 regions of Italy and Chicago's largest selection of sparkling wine. The decor, inspired by the faded, gilded beauty of Venice, is filled with silk damask drapes, carved wood chandeliers and gold-framed artwork. The coup de grace is the 35' long bar, hand burnished to resemble a piece of antique Venetian furniture. The bar serves Italian finger food and offers a wide selection of European spirits. Enjoy classic comfort foods -- from house-made pasta to nightly beef, fish and game menu additions. Dine with the Chef at the Carpaccio bar, where a selection of fresh cured and smoked meats and the freshest fish, are sliced nightly. Prices are moderate, but those wishing to indulge in an evening of culinary mischief will not be disappointed!Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "My favorite cocktail in the summer time is a light Prosecco, so why not try a restaurant named of the sparkling drink. We sat immediately, to be served a quick taste of their namesake, then between the menu and specials there was to much to chose. Amazing food, really good service and lovely atmosphere - cant wait to go back soon!"

  • "We have been coming to Prosecco for over 3 years and never disappointed- appreciate being recognized as 'returning' customers- ambiance and service is great, really good wine list. We will continue to return even though we enjoy 'new' restaurants, but Prosecco has 'earned' our loyalty."

  • "I have the pleasure of coming to Chicago about once a year for business. We have had Prosecco on our definite dinnner plans for many years and it continues to deliver on food, service and wine. For special occasions, this is my go to restaurant. Love this place......"

  • "Everything was just perfect. Our server Andrew was phenomenal and every single dish (escargot, buratta tomato appetizer,salads lamb chops veal saltimbocca and sausage rigatoni) was outstanding. The portion sizes were perfect. We will definitely return and ask for Andrew."

  • "*Our party of 4 was greeted and seated at a window table -- very nice. *The complimentary taste of Prosecco very nice as well. * Avocado seafood salad was tasty but lacked seafood. * Pasta dish was tasty and filling. Everyone seemed to enjoy their entrees. * Waitress lacked personality and deterred from our enjoyment of the evening."

  • "This was my second time here. I was hoping the first time was an anomaly. But both times I encountered the hostess pushing hard to seat us....even when we came early, and wanted to enjoy a drink at the bar. Rubbed the wrong way twice... and it wasn't at all crowded."

  • "We met out of town friends here for dinner. It was a slow weekend for restaurants; everyone was at lalaopoloza. We got to sit in the front window with a great view. The ambiance is romantic and clean. The waiter was great: never forced his way in or interrupted. He never missed a beat. Kept our glasses full, served the food timely, and cleared the plates quickly. Food was great. I had the avocado appetizer, which was great. The scallops dinner were really a hit; cooked perfectly and served with a delicious sauce. Friends ordered a pasta special with bow tie noodles and a saffron sauce that was incredibly good. The gorgonzola gnocchi was good, but heavy. Couldn't eat but half the plate. Everyone had a fabulous time."

  • "The food is great and the restaurant is definitely fancy and romantic. It is definitely great for brunch and special occasion dinners. The quantity of food does not justify the price that well, if a soup or salad was included, the quantity would be perfect. Long, descriptive, and amazing wine list and the service was tremendous."

  • "Was not impressed with the taste of the food at all. Small portions would lend itself to bigger taste but thats not the case. The restaurant did have a nice atmosphere where a few business meetings and dates were going on. Just not the best place in Chicago to get good in my opinion"

  • "Lift your proseco with me to PROSECO, a delightful Italian restaurant on N. Wells. After being greeted with a flute of proseco, our service was impeccable and fast (too fast once as I was lifting my expresso..and it was in the way of the arriving dessert). The 3 of us loved our supper to celebrate a birthday. The restaurant is warm and lit beautifully. The menu is diverse with several specials, but not overwhelming with specials. My scallops were still swimming in the chef's sauce and the saltimbocca was jumping and was perfectly tender. Great dolci too."

  • "We met our friends of over 40 years at your restaurant on Saturday..Needless to say, knowing each other so long, we have experimented with many Chicago restaurants. Prosecco was a wonderful experience! The food way wonderful and the staff was very helpful, friendly and informed!! We will be back!"

  • "We try to have dinner here when in Chicago - the service is great and the food is consistently good. I highly recommend the snails, any of the pasta dishes, and they have a great wine list. Very nice atmosphere and great location, as well."

  • "6:30pm Friday night and the noise level already made conversation difficult. Within an hour conversation was reduced to screaming or hand signals. Dining outdoors, albeit on a reasonably busy street, may be the solution. Unfortunately, rain was in the forecast on the night we were there, foreclosing that option. Entrees were a mild, dense white-fleshed fish and seafood risotto, both of which were properly prepared and served. Side dishes were equally well received. Prosecco pours a 1/2 glass of house-Prosecco upon seating! It's a tad sweet, but cost-free. Having dined at this location on several occasions I feel comfortable claiming you will find a near perfect meal. The sole liability is the noise level."

  • "We had dinner here with a friend and our 12 year old granddaughter. Our wait person was amazing. She brought ginger ale for our granddaughter in lieu of the prosecco - very nice touch! She had good suggestions and we were served promptly. All in all very nice evening."

  • "Phenomenal lunch experience. Took a friend for their birthday and it was great. The mozzarella cheese is so fresh it melts in your mouth and their home made pasta is exquisite. We had a leisurely 2 hour lunch and we were extremely satisfied"

  • "I don't know if the restaurant is "GREAT" for outdoor dining but, would have preferred that choice...We had rain so everyone was inside. Hopefully, the weather also explains the 40 minute wait for an 8PM reservation.. The food was less than memorable..."

  • "Our waiter last night, Greg, could not have been worse if he tried. Our table of two was sandwiched in between two tables of four. My wife and I just wanted to have a nice dinner, no apps, no wine, etc. I don't know if it was because he knew our bill would be small compared to the tables next to us, but he BLATANTLY gave them much better service. He thoroughly explained the dessert menu to them versus a "here you go" to us. He brought each of their bills to them before ours (despite us ordering first and, clearly, being done first). Not to mention we waited a LONG time to even see him in the first place. Poor job, Greg We had fond memories of Prosecco from our first visit. We left feeling really disappointed after this one though."

  • "The menu at Prosecco had great promise and it is well balanced and authentic. The burrata was terrific and well done as a first course. The pasta that I had for the main had shrimp, but it was unremarkable enough that I forgot the rest. The good news is that they had a bottle of 2007 Brunello di Montalcino, Frattoria dei Barbi which was extraordinary. The service was acceptable but I think we saw at least 5 different servers appear at our table during dinner each with their own very specific and finite role which does not really lend itself to the management of a dinner experience specific to the customer."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "This place is a bit hidden off of Wells St, but offers great Italian cuisine. Not the huge portions and heavy Italian food though - more like a fine dining experience. Wait staff is very knowledgeable and offers great suggestions. Have never had a bad meal here! You are served a complimentary glass of Prosecco upon arrival which is a nice touch. Good date night spot or place for groups. Really nice private dining options as well."

  • "I started with the Avocado salad, a half avocado scooped out with scallion, lobster and prawns mixed together and a sweet balsamic glaze mixed in. Fresh basil and micro greens topped the dish. The flavors were fresh and perfect for summer. Unique, the salad could have been served on the plate and not in the scooped out avocado shell. The cavatelli was my main course. Fresh, handmade ricotta cavatelli with good sized grilled shrimp swimming in the bowl. Shaved asparagus were buried underneath it all. A few tomatoes were thrown in, almost as an after thought, many more would have been excellent. A 2010 Pinot Nero from Avinolli, Italy was good, not great. For $18 a glass, I expected more. Service was a little slow."

  • "If you want a restaurant with elegance, outstanding service and superb food then Prosecco is a must. Located in the city but not in the hub - Prosecco does not have the ostentatious pretensions that attract the flighty. Instead it's clientele is discerning and confident that the service and food will always meet expectations. Thus allowing them to enjoy the company and conversation with the people they are with - instead of fretting about the meal."

  • "This restaurant is "just ok". While it has a pleasant decor and nice outside seating the food is just ok and the service very poor. Even though I had a reservation we were kept waiting 15 mins for a table although there were multiple free tables when we arrived. Secondly the waiter we had didnt explain the two menus we were given. We had to ask him what was the difference between the two. We then had to ask him what the specials were. He seemed to just want to take our order even though he hadnt explained the menus. Then when he came back to take our order we had to ask him if we could see the wine list. He was so disinterested in serving us we considered leaving the restaurant. The wine we ordered was poor. We didnt finish it."

  • "The place is attractive with decent ambiance. We were seated near a table of 2 couples and one of the ladies proceeded to talk and cackle loudly all night...not proseccos problem but annoying to us. The food was mediocre and very late coming out. My entree a marlin special of the night was a tough chewy mess. They took it off the bill and provided a complimentary dessert. The server was very attentive but our overall experience was not good."

  • "It was nice to be welcomed with a complimentary sip (not glass like they advertise) of prosecco but that was really the only highlight. The food was okay but nothing to blow your socks off. I've had much better at smaller, more economic restaurants that have a less stuck-up air. I think the restaurant is beautiful and the patio is awesome, but something that should be saved for a some-what special occasion. Even then you could find something better. The crowd was older than I was expecting (40+) on a Friday night, so definitely not somewhere you can go to just let your hair down and have a good time. The service was good, but again noting great. I'm not sure I would go back, but I'm glad that I checked it off my list. "

  • "We just wanted a late, simple dinner and it turned out to be a delight, loved the ambiance, very elegant but warm. The salad was fabulous (tri colore) and then I had a sea food spaghetti dish (frutti di mare) that I loved, the wine list is off the charts, worth just going for that, my friend had a delicious risotto special and we shared a dessert that was exquisite, torta di mele, an apple layered pastry that was a great ending to the meal"
