Diner Reviews
  • "This has always been our favorite spot for pre-theatre dining, but it also is a very splendid choice for dinner any time. We enjoyed a birthday dinner with our niece featuring the ravioli half-orders as appetizers then moving on to salads and splitting a couple of entrees among our small group. Great service and good recommendations from our waiter. The only odd part of our experience was the ladder being used to adjust the track lighting over the changing table settings. At first, I thought it had to be a roof leak given the earlier thunderstorm. How odd to have staff on ladders in the middle of the service staff and fine dining experience."

  • "The menu is very definitely traditional Italian, with several different ravioli choices, and a number of other pasta dishes and mains. I had intended to have the caprese but our very enthusiatic and well-informed waiter, Jan, suggested that we try a few of the house specialities instead. In the end we had the organic beet ravioli (thin-sliced beets, sandwiched together to look like ravioli) and an actual ravioli (with artichoke and ricotta) for starters. The half orders of all of the pasta dishes make for a perfect appetizer size. For mains, I had another half order - the orecchiette this time - and the spouse had the veal scallopini. The pasta was cooked perfectly & the half orders ideal. Excellent craft beer menu. Would definitely return."

  • "We enjoyed our evening here, it was not very busy possibly because it's in a basement and no outdoor space. In the winter I imagine it would be very cosy. Food was good, but not exciting (mainstream italian) and service very friendly."

  • "I have never been let down at Trattoria No. 10. This past visit was one of the first times I didn't get pasta so I was worried I wouldn't enjoy my meal, but I did! The salad I ordered came out quickly and was perfectly prepared. I will definitely be back!"

  • "Had a great lunch on Tuesday--the food was excellent, as always, and the service was very good. The noise level seemed a bit louder than usual, but not distracting."

  • "Took a friend out for his birthday. We both had the house made pasta and neither of us we disappointed. I had one of the ravioli dishes and it was wonderful. Given that we were there for lunch the service was tailored to getting you in and out in an hour. No complaints."

  • "We had a large group with an early reservation. We were seated promptly, the server was friendly, polite and attentive, and the entrees were wonderful with plentiful portions. The only dislike I had was the bread was toasted too hard. I would have preferred warm bread over what was served."

  • "We were a bit disappointed in this visit. My butternut ravioli were not served hot and with very little sauce. Our other entree, the pasta with wild mushrooms was served hot and was delicious, although a little salty. I told the server about the ravioli and she apologized but I didn't get a hot entree until my husband was done with his lunch. We, of course, wanted to dine together and not separately. We always raved about this restaurant to friends, but we were not happy on this visit."

  • "We love Trattoria No 10 because the duck confit farfalle is to die for and so is the beet salad, which is really beets sliced very thin and put together ravioli fashion with a creamy, goat cheese interior. Their chocolate budino is more than enough for two and their coffee rocks. Go there!"

  • "We first attended Trattoria #10 with a choral directors society and immediately knew this was the place for our special occasions. We live in the far-south suburbs and have often dined at Trattoria #10 just for the optimum experience. In other words, there was no other particular reason to go downtown other than to dine at Trattoria #10. The food and the service have always been exemplary, and we are already planning our next excursion to this magnificent restaurant."

  • "Trattoria #10 is a must if you have not been. We have not been in a while as we now live in Florida. We ordered way too much food, but had to have the main staples that are on their menu. Appetizers: Butternut Squash Ravioli, Sausage Ravioli with Arrabiata and fresh Basil, Mushroom Crostini and appetizer portion of Farfalle pasta with duck confit, caramelized onions, asparagus and pine nuts. (Thanks Mr. Rosenthal for keeping that dish on the menu). My wife's Rack of Lamb was perfection paired with seasonal vegetables which were cooked nice and al Dante. The Veal Scaloppini with lemon and Caper Berries was as tender as could be. Tiramisu for Dessert. Yum. Kudos to Lorenzo, Tammy, Sal, Jan, Chef Caputo and the Management team."

  • "We loved this restaurant! Although the location is great for theatre going, it was a wonderful meal all around. Everything was prepared perfectly and our server, Michael, was great. We loved the veal scallopine and pastas and the desserts were excellent! We can't wait to go back!"

  • "We came to Chicago for a business event and selected Trattoria No. 10 based on reviews. One of our guests who lives in Chicago then told us that it was one of her favorite restaurants. The food was excellent. The lamb was tender with a sauce that complemented rather than overpowered the lamb, and it was cooked exactly as I had requested. Service was professional and solicitous without being overbearing. Noise level was reasonable and seating was comfortable. Prices are on the high side but you do get quality for your money."

  • "Special friends in town for a birthday dinner so I decided to get out of the Streeterville area and try something different. Trattoria No 10 did not disappoint! The ambience was incredible and our meal was fantastic. I enjoyed a seafood main course while my friends both had pasta--we were all extremely pleased with our choices and the service was first class. Would also strongly recommend the kale caesar salad. We were treated to a beautiful birthday cheesecake by our server (let them know in advance that it is a special occasion!). While we weren't going to the theater that night, I would suggest this as a pre- or post- theater option."

Also asked for parmesan cheese for oil for bread. Waitress said yes but then she stood talking to another waitress. Cheese was delivered by another staff member along with meal -- sorry too late. Already ate my bread."

We always appreciate the delicious menu, the great wine list, the fabulous deserts and the fantastic service. We have often remarked how outstanding the waitstaff is. Highly trained in fine dining, you're beverages are re-filled without you even knowing they were there . They are always polite and prompt without being overbearing and course is delivered to perfection. The food is always the right temperature and fresh ingredients are always used. Love love LOVE this restaurant and would not hesitate to highly recommend it to anyone."
