It was a very intimate setting and the food was delicious. There was complimentary pasta with a cheesy tomato sauce that was to die for served with bow tie pasta. I had the salmon with Dill Sauce and mushroom risotto and my husband had the lasagna. Both were delicious and there was plenty left over for another serving (work lunch!). It was nice and romantic. The only thing is they only take cash. It wasn't noted and we found out when we got there so stop by your bank first if you don't want to pay atm fees.

if you want an authentic, homestyle Italian meal. They have the best Chicken Vesuvio in Chicago. We're never disappointed.

Some of the best food ever.
We ordered a ton of food because everything looked so good and we had a ton of leftovers. Me and my girlfriend both shared my meal between the 2 of us the following day. Highly recommend this restaurant.

Old School Italian American
Bacchanalia has been a long time favorite with my family and friends. We love the intimate feel and the friendly service. The food is always delicious and served nice and hot. Bar service is reliable and we always feel welcome. This is why we've been coming to Bacchanalia for 20+ years.

An exquisite dining experience
I was looking for a place to dine at with an old friend of mine from high school. I was looking for a good restaurant with delicious food, a friendly and attentive staff, and a comfortable atmosphere. I looked online and found wonderful reviews for this restaurant. I was happy to experience all of those things. It was a nice dining experience, with all of the elements of a good, quality restaurant present. When the food took a bit to cook, the chef even gave complementary food (which was unexpected and nice). My old friend and I were able to catch up at a place with good food, service and a comfortable atmosphere. It was truly a wonderful find. I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a pleasant dining experience.

Authentic Italian Cuisine
Every time I am in Chicago, I make time to have at least one dinner at Bacchanalia. True old world Italian goodness that brings back many happy childhood memories of my Grandma Lou's homemade ravioli and 'gravy' (meat sauce). May not be fancy or in a prime location but well worth the trip - - the food is marvelous!

Best Gnocchi Ever
The entire experience was beyond expectations. Our waitress was so friendly and gave us a few free perks. The bread basket is the largest I've ever received. The food was delicious and to top it all off, the whole bill, with alcoholic drinks was under $50 for two. The gnocchi was literally the best gnocchi I have ever had. I will go back to this place again!

Best Italian in Chicago
One of Chicago's best secrets, Bacchanalia is a little off the beaten path but absolutely worth the trip. Everything is homemade and I've never had a dish I didn't love. Personal favorites are the Bacchanalia Chicken, the meat ravioli and spaghetti with bolognese sauce. You'll leave full and with leftovers! And don't skip desert - the tiramisu is delicious!

Well worth the cab ride...
Before I say anything, let me say that this is truly a neighborhood gem. The food was wonderful and every diner, except for my party, we locals. Huge portions, festive occasions and wonderful, friendly people. If I lived in Chicago, I would go to Bacchanalia on a regular basis.
Not a native of Chicago, I had no idea where Bacchanalia was located. I was staying on Michigan Avenue and wanted to get out of the downtown hustle and bustle, and boy, did I!!! It was a hike in a cab, but I would do it again and recommend it to anyone visiting Chicago.
Wonderful restaurant, wonderful people and wonderful food.

Great food in close quarters
The restaurant is tiny and tables are squished together with narrow walkways between them. This is not a leisurely place to eat but great food nonetheless. Great spot before United Center events!

Parms All Around
We were on a four day weekend trip to Chicago from Delaware. My partner and I ordered Chicken Parm and the special which was eggplant and veal parm combo. What a great dinner. The veal was amazingly tender and the marinara sauce was perfect. Server was professional and knowledgeable and instantly made us feel at home. Great night.

A wonderful gem we found in Little Italy- would go back again for sure. The food was great- vodka sauce is awesome as were the tiramsu and cannoli.
