We meet only 2 times a year and always come home to my roots as I was raised in this neighborhood. Il Vicinato has always been my favorite restaurant. We had a great time and will be back again! More

$$$$
Italian | Little Italy / University Village, Chicago

Davanti is one of the best italian I've had in my life. I am a total foodie and was pleasantly surprised with this hidden gem in little italy. The food is absolutely incredible, extremely savory and the selections are vast. We dined this past Saturday night, and were a larger party. Despite its busy Saturday night vibes, the service was exceptional. The staff went above and beyond and was so knowledgeable and attentive. The food was coursed out perfectly, I don't remember the last time I had that much fun and honestly can't wait to come back!!!! This restaurant goes down as my favorite italian in Chicago. THANK YOU to Dea and her amazing staff for going above and beyond! You are all exceptional! 5 stars does not do this place justice! More

Italian | Little Italy / University Village, Chicago

We’ve celebrated our kids birthdays here for years and with luck, the weather, we’ve eaten outside which is much more pleasant than the indoor seating which can be kind of boisterous. This time the service was initially overwhelmed with a full house but after 30 min, they hit their stride and it was terrific, as always More

$$$$
Italian | Little Italy / University Village, Chicago

Menu changes often. Food is quite good. Pastas are not your typical pasta and meatballs. They are a bit different but always very good. I especially love the appetizers and the key lime pie dessert. Service is quite friendly and knowledgeable of the menu. They are willing to change things up for you if you ask. Nice place to dine out on the patio. Good wine too!!! More

Bacchanalia - Chicago
(475)
$$$$
Italian | Little Italy / University Village, Chicago

I know we are spoiled because we love this place and have been going here forever. This really is no reason to look for Italian dishes in an old school Italian restaurant setting! With a recent remodel the place looks great. Entrees are spot on. The staff once again brought their A Game. Last week we took my buddy, Mike from Iowa, to the restaurant and seven days later is still talking about it! More

It’s a small place with limited seating. Food was good. The service was slow, but that’s because the place was packed. Good Indian food!! More

Italian | Little Italy / University Village, Chicago

We enjoyed our meal. We had a big group but we had to do some of the set up ourselves. The staff was accommodating insofar as helping us out with a picture but we had to ask twice for menus. My mother is in a wheelchair and access was adequate for her. More

Discover Little Italy

By 1927, Italians in Chicago owned more than 250 restaurants. Their innovations -- such as deep-dish pizza and mass-produced gyros -- still influence the Little Italy dining scene today. There are at least three theories about who invented the iconic Italian beef sandwich. Or course, you won't care who originated it when you’re sinking your teeth into one that’s dripping with hot gravy. Don’t even think of leaving town without savoring the intense flavor of a dry-aged rib eye. Order traditional Chicken Vesuvio for a pleasing pop of garlic, and if you’ve always wanted to cry, "Opa!" in a crowded restaurant, ask for saganaki cheese flambeed tableside. Do you still have room for dessert? Try a local brownie. The original was invented right here by Bertha Palmer, who whipped up the first batch for the Chicago World's Fair in 1893.
