Best Tiramisu and Veal Parmigiana
The Veal Parmigiana is exceptional and the Tiramisu is the best I have ever tasted. The Sangiovese by the glass was delicious as well. The Tortellini soup uses a chicken broth that is a little bland.

Had it my way!
I love the food at Tutto Fresco - and I so appreciate the requests that are honored. I enjoyed a wonderous seafood pasta dish but I don't eat wheat (pasta), so asked if this diavolo dish could be served on spinach instead. no problem. want it even MORE hot? yes, please. and additional dried red chilis were brought to the table, too. Grati!

Careful preparation, warm service
Tutto Fresco is our favorite neighborhood restaurant. The chef is a cut above others on his Italian standards--pasta is always perfectly al dente, sauces are excellent, calamari is tender and delicate, and salads are crisp and generous. In addition, the staff are friendly, warm and always want to make sure you are happy. It's a family-owned and operated place, and the love shows.

I would recommend that you try this extraordinary restaurant before gentrification fully takes hold of the neighborhood. Right now, you can always get a table and the ambience is such that that four people can carry on a decent conversation.
Add to that some of the most deliciously prepared Italian cuisine I’ve ever found in a neighborhood restaurant, and you have the makings of a great gastronomic event.
The décor is positively cheesy but that doesn’t detract from the taste one whit.

This place is truely a neighborhood gem. Me and my girlfriend have been coming multiple times for the past few months and have never been dissapointed. The cesar salad is to die for, and my pasta with vodka sauce is my favorite anywhere. The servers are always amazing, and make you feel welcome immidietly. I would reccomend this to anyone who is looking for a cute, authentic italian experiance in the lakeview area.

The food was excellent as always. This is a favorite spot for our family who gather there from various parts of the city. We are never disappointed. The white fish is outstanding.

Great Neighborhood Gem
Tutto Fresco is truly the definition of a neighborhood gem. Tucked away in a unassuming location on north broadway, this restaurant has some of the best italian food I have ever tasted. The service is fantastic, and they are always so accommodating. This has become my new favorite restaurant in Chicago.

Had no idea of this restaurant in the neighborhood and was pleasantly surprised by the delightful food and drink, but most especially the welcoming and friendly service.

Great little Italian restaurant near Wrigley Field. Chicken Parm was amazing and the Zuppe De Pesi was outstanding. Service was great too! A classic Italian gem!
