A hidden gem for a business lunch
First time there and I loved it! This will be my new business lunch favorite for client meetings!

what a gem! We have noticed this place before but for some reason we never ate there until last Tuesday. The grilled calamari appetizer was perfectly done. The vegetable risotto was just right. My salmon was cooked as I wished. Our house wines were very good. Can't wait to get back.

versatile neighborhood gem
Live nearby and never dined here until recently! This is the restaurant in the rail car on the side. Happening bar scene post-happy hour. Huge portions! Lasagna pretty good. Didn't make it to dessert. The seating area in the rail car is more intimate if you want a dining atmosphere.

Outstanding Italian gem
Sitting in a railroad car in downtown Chicago! Outstanding Italian food - appetizers; main course;desserts - and a great wine list with reasonable prices. Tables with linen tablecloths are set for 2 or 4 however they easily rearrange for larger parties. Our waiter was Genti and he had outstanding knowledge of everything on the menu. He also specializes in wines from the Tuscany region.
I would highly recommend Tutto Italiano to all. The bar area, which you enter through, is also quaint with several regulars visiting with the staff. We will go back.

Good food quirky place
Owner/manager is a character.... Making sure things are perfect but cracking jokes with everyone while doing it.... Food was very good. Interesting to eat in a train car. Nice experience!

Went to Tutto on a Travelzoo voucher. Great service, great atmosphere, very tasty food. Really enjoyed the experience. It was our first anniversary and it was a quiet and romantic setting.

Good Neighborhood Place
We live a couple of blocks from this place, and go every so often. The food is always good, the portions are big and the prices are reasonable. What's not to like.

Very nice Italian meal!
We had a great meal, and enjoyed the interesting rail car environment with my wife, son and his girlfriend. The fried ravioli appetizer was exceptional, and the traditional bread/olive oil/grated cheese combination was a nice start. Nice music at a good level (you could enjoy it without having to talk over it), and only an occasional yell from a sports fan in the other room watching the soccer match. Highly recommended.

Simple but great
My wife and I travel in form the burbs for Tutto Italiano... it probably is not the best at anything, but we have never been disappointed by the food quality, the service or any part of our experience. We Love the cute little converted train car. Food is great at times -- try the mussels and get a side of meatballs... I could drink the sauce from the mussels straight (and did the last time we were there), and it tastes like Grandma is in the back slaving over the meatballs all day.
Great place, we love it and will continue to make it out at least once a year for a visit.

WE were a group of six and the waiter was excellent. Very knowledgeable about the menu and took care of everyone's special requests. Food was generous and very good. Calamari was outstanding; the breading was light and crisp. Waiter was attentive but allowed us to enjoy our conversation.
