    Very cozy spot below street level. Loved the atmosphere & service. Nice menu. Be sure to try the ravioli (I went wild for the butternut squash with walnut butter). The veal scallopini was very good, as well. Good list of Italian wines. All in all, a lovely evening. I would surely recommend it!

    I try to make it here at least 3 or four times a year. You must try their house made raviolis. They have standard and special varieties available and you can order them as an appetizer to share. Although they concentrate on pasta dishes, I've had the pork or beef selections and I have never been disappointed.

    Our party of 6 dined here last Saturday night based on it being rated as one of the top restaurants in the area according to Zagat. The restaurant was fantastic in accommodating us after being late for our reservation- we are not locals and had a little trouble finding it. When we did arrive, we were promptly escorted in with a smile. The service was outstanding- some of the best we have experienced anywhere- and we were given excellent recommendations of items to try. In particular, we loved the polenta appetizer, the butternut squash ravioli (amazing!) and the day boat scallops. In a city with so many great choices, Trattoria No. 10 is a must-try- reasonable prices, top notch service, delicious food. We will be back!!

    We had a birthday celebration (mine) that evening. Our waiter, David, was very attentive and down to earth. He gave great recommendations and we never had to look for him. He also brought complimentary wine and dessert complete with a birthday candle to our table. The beet ravioli salad was amazing as was the other pasta dishes we had. I love going to this place.

    Dave was our server and he was stellar. The fresh pasta that is made there, and was truly flavorful and tender. You can order 1/2 or full orders of pasta, or as we did, full orders but 2 different pastas. They brought us each two smaller plates of each ravioli which were outstanding, as were the shellfish pasta, the salads, and the cheese course that we had for dessert. Two of us had beet "ravioli" salads that were a rift on ravioli...thinly sliced beets with a ricotta/goat cheese mixture, topped with perfectly seasoned arugula. A gorgeous presentation and so tasty. The wine choices were also quite good with many in the $60/bottle range. We had two bottles. It is in the Loop, underground. We cannot give our server enough accolades. GO!

    Dined on 8/23/2014
    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.

    Dined on 8/22/2014
    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.

    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.
