This was my first time visiting this restaurant so I looked it up on line to check out the menu. When we arrived the items me and my friend wanted to order that we saw on the website was not available in the restaurant. Not much of a bit deal but upsetting. When we finally received our starter (cheese plate with pickles) it was such a small serving for the price. We each got basically a cube and half of cheese. Next was our entrees, once again the portion size was small for the price we paid (good thing I was not starving). But I wanted to end on a positive note. The food was AMAZING, I ordered the pork which was seasoned and cooked to perfection. The meat was tender and juicy. The side of potatoes were very nice. My friend also enjoyed the chicken he ordered which he also said was moist and very tasty. Overall the food was amazing the only down side was that their online menu did not match what was in the store. And the portion sizes were smaller than either one of us expected. More

Everything was great. I had ordered a small Ensalada de Frutas but it was not as it was described on the menu. I received a martini glass of cut up pineapple, strawberries and whole blackberries. There was no mango, no papaya, no watermelon, no grapes, no lime and no sweet, toasted coconut dressing. It looks good on the menu but I did not get what I ordered. Besides that, everyone enjoyed their dinner and the desserts were delicious. More

Great little gem discovered when wanting a quick bite before a show @ the Mercury Theater. The thin crust pizza was DELICIOUS. Personal size was great for one hungry adult. Flaky crust. NIce amount of crisp. Better option for those more carb conscious. If you're looking for a great thin crust pizza near the Cubs stadium, look no further than D'Agostino's. We will be back when in Chi-town! More
