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!

    The food was amazing! The staff was incredibly on point with information about the menu and wine list, impressive! They were so kind to pour us champagne in the beginning which started the night in a great way! And they kept refilling the bread basket which was also very nice of them! Honestly, never had a great service at a Restuarant in a long time.

    Mediocre food, and once we opted for the $85 bottle of wine rather than the $250 bottle of Amarone we had seriously been considering, our waiter lost interest in us. Perhaps that was we didn't get complimentary grappa after dinner, as the other three tables around us did. Too bad, as we went elsewhere for an equally priced bottle of champagne after dinner (had our waiter been a bit less disinterested in serving us, we'd have stayed at Prosecco for the champagne). The same week, however, we had two excellent meals at Nico Osteria (excellent food, attentive service), and we'd recommend Nico over Prosecco.

    Incredible food; every morsel that passed our lips was heavenly. Informative waiter with great recommendations, but our service was slow (perhaps he had too many tables). The busboy attentively cleared away everything that was empty, and some things that weren't quite finished yet. When my wine glass had been empty for a while, unnoticed by the waiter, bus boy picked it up and I thought he asked if I wanted more. I said I did. He brought me a clean empty glass. Astonished, we eventually got the waiter's attention and it was taken care of. Yet, the food was divine! We would only go back if they offered carry outs, so we could eliminate the frustration.

    We went on a Saturday & it was crowded and noisy. When they sat us, we were offered a comp half glass of Mionetto Processo. The bread was wonderful & crusty; bruscetta topping bland - cheese & oil or butter would be better,. Two appetizers - grilled baby calamari & the meat/cheese platter. We then shared a salad & risotto with meat. My date liked everything. I enjoyed the meal & we'd go back just not on a Saturday night. We could not hold a conversation. Comped wine again because entree was delayed because Processo was so busy. The baby calamari was a little dry & not flavorful; lemon wedges made it acceptable. Meat platter and risotto fantastic! Service attentive without hovering. Took home half the risotto.

    Everything on the menu is thoughtful and delish!! You can get half orders of all of the pasta to share - which allowed my party the ability to do lots of great tastings. The complimentary glass of prosecco was so lovely and started our festive birthday celebration. Great service and good wine list. You have to order the scallops in vanilla sauce - heavenly and my taste buds did a huge happy dance!

    So here's my breakdown - Overall 4 out of 5 - Will return on special occasions. Food: 4 out of 5 - Tough lamb and high sauce-to-pasta ratio brings the food rating down one notch. Service: 4 out of 5 - the waiter (Sam) was excellent (5/5), but the support staff brought it down a notch... I was asked 3 times (by the same gentleman) if I wanted my espresso (after clearly indicating I would have it AFTER the dessert was finished). Value: 3 out of 5 - this place is not cheap. 1 Appetizer, 1 'primo', 2 entrees, 1 dessert (comped because it was our anniversary), 1 espresso, and 2 glasses of wine - $167 (i.e., over $100 per person with gratuity). Granted, it was a larger-than-typical meal, but even for the quantity, it's still steep.

    My wife and I dined here on 10/6/2014. The ambiance is lovely. Comforting yet classy and quite romantic indeed. Being at street level provides a touch of that quintessential Chicago energy, but not at the frenetic level of the middle of downtown. The host and waitstaff were exceptionally warm and did a good job of informing us about the menu. The food was outstanding. I had the avocado salad and rack of lamb, and my wife had a steak with grilled zucchini etc. All was flavorful and well executed, refined but with a rustic/traditional slant - fine dining, but familiar. I have to mention the avocado salad again...it was bright yet luscious and very memorable! The lemon sorbeto was more refreshing and smoother than I've had elsewhere.

    Besides the server being unable to listen or answer questions, the kitchen took just over 2.5 hours to prepare our entrees. If the food had been spectacular, the wait could have been overlooked, but the quality wasn't worth the price or the wait. Additionally, the chef repeatedly shouted to his wait staff from across the restaurant which was very disruptive to conversation and unprofessional.

    One of the more elegant Italian spots in Chicago. We have been here several times and it is consistently good. Service is good, but I just wish that the bus boys would learn to not pick up dirty utensils separately from the dishes. Just pick up the dirty dishes with the utensils on them and then separate them away from the table.

    Elegant surroundings/decor. Gentlemen who waited on the tables were very attentive & friendly. The burrata (imported creamy mozzarella) with pears in a reduced port wine sauce was beautifully presented & cheese was unique- so creamy and rich. The ORECCHIETTE TARTUFATE was delicious- a half order was plenty. A few things didn't add to the experience however. The flowers in the vase had cloudy water, so they need to make sure to change-out the water if necessary, so it doesn't appear stagnant. Another thing that looked bad, was one of the staff (not saying who), sipping a huge glass of red wine while on the job. That is not professional. Overall enjoyed Prosecco- it would be a good location for a romantic evening out.

    Very nice restaurant with outstanding service and great food. Good regional wine list options. Nice touch opening with glass of Prosecco for patrons. The steak was better than most Chicago steak houses I have been to. And that's almost all of them. Great pasta with shrimp and and risotto. Very attentive and unhurried service. Louder in the back room. Would prefer the front room the next time. Definitely among the best white table cloth Italian restaurants in the city.

    This is a great restaurant away from Michigan Ave. The food is very, very good and our service was impeccable. Their wine list is extensive and the welcome taste of prosecco wine was a perfect start to the evening. The avocado salad with lobster and shrimp is outstanding. The lamb was out of this world and my wife loved her eggplant dish. The desert menu changes daily and offered a number of outstanding choices. A wonderful restaurant.

    We went to celebrate a birthday and felt like we were sent to the back room too close to the table next to us. The ambiance in the front of the restaurant seemed better and there were open tables there. We were by the kitchen and heard the chef correcting his wait staff. Our waitress was frumpy and not interested in us at all. She was going through the motions. Food was good.

    Our experience at Prosecco was beyond words. We shared the crab cakes and the orecchiette. Then my companion had tuna and I had salmon. Everything was most imaginatively prepared. We felt we had hit a culinary goldmine and indeed, it was one of the highlights of our 3-day trip to Chicago. We had a very personable and extremely attentive waiter who was most helpful in advising us on what to choose. He even treated us to a glass each of Serena at the end of the meal. We developed quite a rapport with him since he and I are both professional musicians and I promised him we'd be back when we return to Chicago in December and I meant it.
