Located in the old Sandburg Theatre in Chicago's Gold Coast, Eduardo's Enoteca is a cozy, romantic Italian wine bar offering lunch and dinner, as well as seasonal specials.

The lunch menu includes lobster ravioli and a tender lemon herb salmon, and a delicious and light handmade pasta. The rustic hand-rolled pizzas are a must-try item, and an extensive and mostly Italian wine list is sure to complement any meal. Eduardo's Enoteca provides for your catering needs, as well as private events and holiday parties. When in Chicago, be sure to check out Eduardo's.

We found this to be a lovely small neighborhood restaurant. Nice wines. We shared the grilled cauliflower (which was great) and the salmon, (which was good.) Not too noisy to talk unless you end up next to a loud table next to you. Very nice ambiance. A good find for us!

There were good options of wine, with reasonable prices and the place is nice. However, food was just average.

Hi Vitor, Thank you for taking the time to review. I am pleased to hear you enjoyed the wines and the ambiance. I am sorry that the meal you had did not live up to the rest of the experience. Could I trouble you for a few details about which dishes you tried and what you felt was missing? Best, Byrd Jasper General Manager

An intimate nook among Chicago’s Gold Coast. 6 seat bar, 12 tables in a small row house. Food thoughtful with attentive service. Spicy Caesar and beet with goat cheese salads shine. Prior visit special was mushroom risotto with scallops. This visit was chicken piccata. Don’t tell anybody!

This was our third time there and it was a group dinner with multiple couples. We love this restaurant and have had a great experience every time. The food is delicious, and they have a good selection of cocktails and wine as well. The service is very nice also. It’s a small place, which adds to its charm, and it’s probably best to make a reservation. A neighborhood gem! We will keep going back!

So cute and perfect date night spot! It’s a great place to try a little bit of everything and we did just that - meatballs were phenomenal, spicy kale salad had a nice refreshing kick to it, the burrata with focaccia was heavenly, and the diavola pizza was wonderful. Awesome service as well!

This place never disappoints. The atmosphere is awesome--very small and intimate but not overly romantic. It's the perfect place for a date night or a friend date. The food is always good and love the selection of wine and cocktails! They always have a seasonal menu, too, so you can try new things. I love this place. It's great for a cold winter night :)

I was in town for the Chicago marathon and upon recommendation from a friend booked this restaurant on Open Table promptly far in advance. Because it’s such a small location I had to call to accommodate our party size. They were great! When we arrived our server was friendly and attentive. We had some GF people with us and the GM came over and gave her recommendations and ensured it would be prepared correctly. She was knowledgable and made us feel at ease because of that. Next time I’m in town I can’t wait to go back and try other things on the menu as everything looked great and the food we had was great! Keep up the good work!

Truly a great experience. We sat outside and it was raining and we were under an umbrella and it was remarkable. Food is spot on. Wine flight was delightful. Butternut squash soup. The pizza. The bolognese. Lots of people watching on first dates which was great. Sabra was a great waitress. Great atmosphere. Heaters worked great outside. A+

The Lemon Parsley Spaghetti was dry and the salmon dish that my husband ordered came with raw, undressed spinach. The Butternut Squash soup came which a lot of dill. Most unusual. Price was low and I guess you get what you pay for.

We went once summer of 2018, 1st time and loved it. As I recall it was happy hour and they had special little plates at a discount. My girlfriend and I split a pasta dish, don’t remember exactly what it was, but I do remember we both liked very much. My recent visit (September 5, 2019) I do remember, we had the Burrata salad with tomatoes and apples, Grilled brussel sprouts with Pancetta, both were delicious and once again split a pasta, Pappardelle Bolognese with ground veal. Fantastic!

The food was very good and the service from our waiter was good too. We were however very disappointed that we were unable to bring our own bottle of wine and pay a corkage fee. The interactions around that request were quite uncomfortable and made for less than perfect evening. We live in the neighborhood and would frequent the place more often if that was welcome. We have no problem paying a corkage fee. In our experience, this has very rarely been a problem. Unfortunately, it was in this case.

Dinner was delicious! Really fresh ingredients and simple but delicious plates. Wind selection is mediocre if you’re not ordering a bottle however.

Hi Michael, So glad to hear you enjoyed your dinner! You are absolutely right our selection of wines by the bottle is much larger than by the glass. Though we do offer 11 reds, 9 whites, 3 roses, and 3 sparklings all by the glass. What were you hoping for that we didn't offer? Perhaps I can find a way to get it onto the list! And as far as bottles go, come see us on Monday's for dinner as we offer 25% off all bottles then. Best, Byrd Jasper General Manager

This is an ok restaurant that is clearly overpriced. Service was fine. We had the cheese tray, which was excellent, but the ravioli was not tender and was basically tasteless.

Responded on July 13, 2019

Hi Sathens, Thank you for your patronage. While I am thrilled to hear you enjoyed the cheese plate, I apologize that you didn't care for the ravioli. We welcome all customer feedback and are happy to replace dishes that aren't cared for! We set our prices so that we can pay our staff and keep the lights on, and in comparison to similar restaurants in the neighborhood our price point is lower. Perhaps we will see you again for a more pleasant experience. Best, Byrd Jasper General Manager
