Really enjoyed not only the staff but meal and decor. Will be back soon as tge food was top notch! GM , Daniel was very much involved in our meal. He was personable and friendly. The team is great. I highly recommend this Roman experience.

My friend and I loved the food--and great wine and beer. I had a Cabernet that was excellent and we both had really good pasta dishes. The prices are more reasonable than the other two Coco Pazzo restaurants and the service attentive. I'm also thrilled that such a good restaurant has opened in Streeterville because there aren't that many. I will definitely return.

Very fun, exceptional food quality and menu selection.

By focusing on Roman based
By focusing on Roman based Italian cuisine, Tre Soldi has a special niche in the restaurant offerings of Chicago. We found both the food and service very impressive and well worth a visit and return visits. The pizzas aren't the standard fare smothered in cheese and sauce. There is attention to flavors and locally sourced ingredients that make this a very special place. Highly recommended.

Loved this place. The flavors remind me of vacationing in Italy. Their homemade pasta is awesome - the best Cacio e pepe outside of Rome! The spicy Diavola pizza is thin and could easily be the best pizza a low-carb lover could eat. They have lots of Italian beers and wines by the glass. Spot on Italian. Will be back often!

Great new Italian restaurant
We went to the new restaurant Tre Soldi this weekend. It is Roman themed, so expect Pizza, which is not quite as thin as that in Rome, but delicious crust and flavorful toppings. We had the anchovy - delicious. Also had a great salad with Favas, escarole and crispy pancetta, fried calamari with lemon, octopus with an outstanding red sauce and a homemade pasta with lamb ragu. Compact wine list, but it was a nice selection and a good amount by the glass.

Consistent Good Quality
Just like sister spot Coco Pazzo, Tre Soldi is solid and delivered tasty, fresh and uncomplicated dishes. Menu isn't large or revolutionary (not that it's trying to be) but gives you exactly what you're looking for -- a good meal. The "melanzane" eggplant appetizer is a particular standout.

Very good Italian food based
Very good Italian food based on Roman cuisine. We've dined here before and applaud the menu choices and quality of the food. On this visit we found the room very noisy which detracted from our enjoyment and high opinion of this restaurant.

Good food...service okay
The food at Tre Soldi was very good. We had the pasta, chicken and fish. All of the dishes were delicious. They were well seasoned, and light. I had a stuffed pasta that was light and delicious. Also, we had the tiramisu was awesome!! It was so light and not dripping in cream like many others are. As for the food...no complaints.
The only complaint I have was the service. We sat for 10 minutes before someone came to take our drink order and the food took a good 20-30 minutes to get to us. However, I know Tre Soldi is new and still working out the kinks so I would definitely give them another chance.

Lives up to Jack Weiss standards
Great thin-crust pizzas. Excellent fava bean salad.

A lively casual dining offshoot
A lively casual dining offshoot of Coco Pazzo with very delicious and reasonably priced Italian food. Noise level was reasonable until the restaurant filled up, but then became very conversation challenged.

Simple and Sophisticated
We dined at Tre Soldi on our way to Navy Pier for an evening fireworks cruise with our two 16-year old grandkids. I am a foodie, my husband likes to try new things and the kids are pretty conservative eaters, and Tre Soldi's menu had something for each of us. They have great thin crust pizzas (add a side of fries for our grandson), excellent pastas in reasonable portions (try the carbonara), innovative salads and a nice charcuterie plate. The octopus appetizer is great for an entrée with a side of the black kale. Highly recommended!

Great night out
We thoroughly enjoyed the food and cocktails at tre Soldi. They were very hospitable all the way around and the food was delicious.

A birthday girls' night
We ate a vegetarian fare as some most members in our party were vegetarian. Everything was delicious. I especially enjoyed an eggplant appetizer. Also, we enjoyed a complimentary wine drink (!?-not sure what it was :) ) and a birthday blue berry tart (LOVE!) which were a thoughtful and kind gesture. The only thing I wasn't too crazy about was this orange infused tiramisu. We definitely enjoyed our night at Tre Soldi, and I am looking forward to returning with my husband.

We always enjoy Tre Solde
We always enjoy Tre Solde very vibrant and simple flavorful choices. Service always top notch

Very authentic Roman food!!
Love this place! Second visit and we are still impressed! The service is outstanding. The food is incredible! If you have ever been to Rome, you will LOVE their pasta dishes. Can't wait to go back again and try other dishes? Highly recommend!

Great Italian food
A pleasant room for watching the streetscape at lunch becomes more romantic at dinner. The Italian specialties were well-prepared and delicious. We shared a pizza, several pastas, and a couple of appetizers for a group of three and took home some leftovers. Service was attentive, friendly, and knowledgable. We expect to eat at Tre Soldi often.
9/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Service with a Smile
Outstanding. Great food, service and ambiance. Casual and friendly. We really enjoyed our meal there.
9/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great casual dining
We really enjoyed the specialty cocktails. We shared a Kale pizza and had the spaghetti carbonara and trout with vegetables, all of which was very good. Our server, Emily, was knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. The interior is sophisticated with clean lines. The restaurant is conversation friendly, because the tables are spaced far enough apart. We will go back.
9/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
My wife and I went to celebrate our anniversary. The waiter was right on with homemade pasta recommendations. Manager came to our table to be sure everything was taken care of.
9/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Perfect for business lunch
After our association's annual conference, we do a post-conference lunch to discuss the good, the bad, and the ugly of how things went. This was the perfect place for our discussion; and we were able to enjoy unique and tasty appetizers, pastas, and pizza while we talked. Squash was the special today, on the pizza and in the pasta. Beet salad was excellent. We'll be back.
9/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Everything was delicious especially the bread and the pizza crust!!!!!!
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Lots of organics! Simply delicious Roman food. Try the pasta carbonara - best ever! Pizza is very light. We loved the Diavola which had spicy sausage on it. Ice cream with an espresso poured on top with a biscotti. Can't wait to go back!
10/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Amazing food, amazing service, in a well-appointed space.
10/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
High quality in unassuming spot
We like Coco Pazzo and Coco Pazza Cafe and so were interested to try this, their new spot which features Roman cuisine. We have only dined there once so far, but everything we tried was very well prepared and we intend to go back until we try everything on the menu. We ordered a fagioli appetizer expecting white beans but were served green and yellow long beans topped with crisped pancetta and perorino and found the beans perfectly cooked and dressed with simple lemon-dill citronette. We had Caccio e Pepe and Carbonara and each was al dente and nicely sauced. The head waiter recommended a well-price and delicious Primitivo wine that went well with our dishes. We look forward to going back and trying their pizzas and other offerings.

Celebrated a Birthday
We celebrated a birthday at lunch. Service was great as well as the food.
The specials were delicious!
I would definitely return & recommend Tre Soldi to everyone.

I had a fabulous meal! I enjoyed
I had a fabulous meal! I enjoyed this restaurant very much. The food was terrific. We had a fried artichoke special appetizer that I am still dreaming about. The spagetti carbonara was just right. I would definitely recommend Tre Soldi to my friends. It is an excellent addition to the Coco Pazzo family.

Tre Soldi Newbie
It was my first time at Tre Soldi--Streeterville isn't usually a neighborhood I frequent but I'm glad to have experienced this gem! In a part of town notorious for mediocre tourist-catered cuisine, Tre Soldi was a breathe of fresh air. We had a three-course lunch of fresh, savory food--the white pizza special was particularly a standout with its blend of prosciutto (I believe), arugula and figs. The service was attentive without being exhausting. The space is airy and modern, with rustic touches such as the wine shelf dividing the prep area near the kitchen to the main dining room. A wonderful place for a far-reaching range of diners!
10/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
This is my third visit - twice for dinner and once for lunch. It has a well-deserved place on my list of favorites. The food is familiar but different - interesting preparation and presentation. It is not a large menu (so much the better) but there certainly in something for everyone. Service is impeccable (thank you again, Humberto).
10/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Recommended to us by the hotel concierge. Service was impeccable. Food was great - we ate there for a late weekend lunch. Gourmet pizza and salads were awesome combination. They even created some pasta entrees (not on the menu) for my finicky kids.
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Perfect for an after theatre (or movie!) meal, Tre Soldi did not disappoint on any level. A bright, well designed space with plenty of room for diners to have a level of privacy. Our group was quickly seated and had wine in hand quickly, followed by wonderful appetizers (we had the homemade mozzarella and the fried artichokes). Everyone enjoyed their entrees and we lingered over coffee and gelato. A wonderful experience -- we would all go back!
10/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Friendly, knowledgeable excellent service. Patrons seemed happy! Best of all, the chef was willing to accommodate my dietary needs and was able to alter a menu item for me. I'd call that responsive, generous and unusually good customer service. I would certainly recommend Tre Soldi and am eager to return.
10/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Noisy, But Good
Was a little noisy, but the food is excellent. A good value for the price.

Thanks to OpenTable
I was in Chicago visiting family and wanted some good Italian food so I turned to OpenTable as I usually do. I found a place, Tre Soldi, near our hotel that had excellent reviews and decided to give it a try. I was not disappointed. The food was wonderful and service excellent. I will visit again the next time I'm in Chicago.
10/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
We ordered an entrée size
We ordered an entrée size pasta dish to split among 3 people as an appitizer. The size of the entre dish was so small that each of had a few tablespoons of pasta for our appetizer. The pastas was good, nicely seasoned and perfectly aldente. The whitefish for the entrée was bountiful and very tasty.
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food is excellent, service not so
Fresh ingredients and deft preparation in kitchen, but service needs improving. Decor is acceptable, but poor choices on music selection (tired 80's rock does not enhance fit the restaurant or enhance the experience)
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Hey, early evening after a wine tasting and the Soldi was almost empty. However, the warm of the staff brought the place to life, the beet salad was wonderful and the ravioli special was outstanding. At the end of our meal the trattoria started to fill and by the time we left it was almost packed. Great light meal experience on a cool Chicago night.
10/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great neighborhood addition
We were so happy to find a great new restaurant in our neighborhood. We know it's part of the Coco Pazzo group but actually like this one every bit as well if not better then the Cafe. The food was so flavorful and inventive. The service was wonderful. The ambience was great. We will return again and again!
11/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
A good start
Enjoyed our evening at Tre Soldi. There could be a few more wine choices by the glass, but the red Neprica we ordered was
very nice. The special leek and potato soup was a delicious start to our meal and the pasta I ordered was cooked to al dente perfection with just enough sauce to coat.
My only complaint involves the location of our table which was right by the door/waiting area. Now that the weather has turned it is very cold every time the door opens despite the fact that there is an inner and outer door. And the people who are waiting to be seated might as well be sitting at this table as they are that close. I can't imagine how it will be once winter is truly here.
11/1/2013 5:00:00 PM
Walking down Ohio from my hotel I literally stumbled on tre soldi. Tired after a long day of travel the laid back ambiance and friendly staff immediately put me at ease. A most delicious sausage and potato pizza hit the spot and a cold pieroni beer helped relax.... The owner, manager and waiters made sure I was enjoying my meal. I came back two days later with friends and had a wonderful meal of kale salad, homemade pasta and dessert to die for. I highly recommend the place and will definitely go back when I return to Chicago

Festival of Lights Find
We made reservations for after the Lighting of the Mag Mile. Although it was extremely crowded (as was every restaurant that night), they acknowledged our reservation and seated us right away - minimal wait. The waitstaff was attentive without being pesty. Even after we finished the meal, they never made us feel rushed to leave.
The food was fantastic!! I would go back again and again.

Had dinner after seeing movie
Had dinner after seeing movie at AMC. Close location and a short wait even though we were very early on our reservation. Reasonable prices and excellent service.
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
Authentic, laidback Italian
This place is an excellent spot for a quiet, relaxing, and enjoyable meal. The servers are very friendly. Everything we ordered was outstanding: the calamari was perfectly breaded and not at all greasy; the margherita pizza was authentic; the mushroom risotto was to die for; and the tiramisu was light and fluffy. We will definitely be back!

excellent food, fresh and
excellent food, fresh and light, great flavors. finally we could enjoy italian cuisine without feeling weighed down by over the top tomato paste or cheese sauce!!! the inventiveness of the dishes, the depth of the flavors without the heaviness makes it one of our new favorite places to eat! and what a find - just walking distance from where we live. thank you!!!

Repeated visits to Tre Soldi
Repeated visits to Tre Soldi have confirmed this is a neighborhood gem--very good food, friendly service and an appealing ambience. We continue to recommend Tre Soldi to others.
11/28/2013 4:00:00 PM
authentic Roman cuisine
Every course was delicious and the most authentic Roman meal we've had in the U.S. since leaving Italy.
12/3/2013 4:00:00 PM
Skip the ambience/go for the food!
This transition to a more upscale restaurant has been accomplished, albeit with little atmosphere improvement. Space is cavernous, too well lit, too loud, and has no "feeling." Needs some improvements...rugs, art or wallhangings....something to soften the feel that you are in a cafeteria. HOWEVER, the food is excellent......salads are creative and incredibly flavorful, no matter which you order. Some of the specials have been off the charts good. The pizzas are uniformly excellent....and the risotto is PERFECTLY cooked al dente and flavorful. Just wish it had more atmosphere!
12/5/2013 4:00:00 PM
We live in the area and enjoy going to Tre Soldi. The food is very good and the wait staff is very friendly. We enjoy it and will continue going there.
12/5/2013 4:00:00 PM
This restaurant is located just off of Michigan avenue right near all of the shopping.
We were looking for a place near the stores to have a nice lunch and this restaurant was perfect.
The look and decorum is not impressive but the food was phenonominal and the waiter was personalble and very attentive.
The price was very reasonalble too.
I highly recommend Tre Soldi.
