We had a great experience at Formento’s. The food was really really good! We got the mussels for appetizer, the scallops and the veal parmesan for dinner, effagato for dessert everything was perfect and so were the cocktails! Service was excellent as well! Only complaint was that it was quite chilly in there. Otherwise everything was great! More

As usual, Eden did not disappoint. Went Saturday night for my wife's birthday, with 8 of her family members and everyone loved it. Charlie created a custom cocktail for my wife that became a table hit. Jolene did a great job and Bill greeted us by name, as he waited on us last time. The Pork Tagliatelle and Redfish were the group favorites. My only complaint is that the IPA list was weak, but most people drink their fancy cocktails or wine. Again, we will be back as this is my go-to business dinner spot in Chicago. More
