An excellent and attentive
An excellent and attentive server makes all the difference. We eat there often and there are differences between the same dish served on a weeknight v. a weekend.Different cooks? Weekend was better!

Other than the hostess saying we did not have a reservation, and then the next day Open Table saying we did not show up, most things were good. They do not have any ocean caught fish.

Very nice experience
Food was great. Service was very good... Restaurant decor and ambiance was very nice too....
One thing I didn't like which is food portions, specially with some dishes are a bit pricey compared to the portion you eat...
Maybe it was just my luck...

This was a last minute pick--what
This was a last minute pick--what a nice surprise. Everything from the appetizer to dessert was fantastic. The eggplant appetizer was one of the best eggplant dishes ever, the soup, entree and dessert were so delicious and there was lots of everything. Service was also excellent--attentive and VERY knowledgeable. We will be back.

Thank you Peter!
This Hinsdale eatery rivals any in the city! Over the last few years these gems pop up and you see great food, space and can enjoy a great evening without the 1hr drive, $20 parking and prices 50% higher.
Poggolio warrants a standing reservation....you can also head down a few doors to their sister restaurant Nabuki for amazing sushi...
Come to downtown.....Hinsdale!

Good place -- for the 'burbs
Il Poggiolo is a pretty good restaurant in Hinsdale. I've eaten there a number of times and it's fair to say that the food is good but service varies by server. I wouldn't say that management (esp) or the staff are on par with a restaurant of comparable price in the city. One early lunch the owner / manager seemed to do more strutting around than focusing on the guests -- guess it wasn't his job. So that was a bit disappointing. Hostess stand took a long time to acknowledge us when the restaurant only had two or three other tables. Just odd
But nonethelss, Il Poggiolo can deliver really good food and flavors. But service is spotty

After booking with open table I did call the day of reservation and ask for them to provide an area on the balcony at the railing.
Request was met.

For those of us in the western suburbs with family in the city, it's a perfect mid-meeting place because of the train.
