The wait staff were so attentive! We had an accidental spill and they provided another drink, curtesy of Formento’s. The food was beyond delicious. I found myself so stuffed by the end of the night. I will definitely return.
Great outdoor patio experience
We wanted to help support local restaurants during this pandemic, and stopped in for dinner on one of the last nights of milder weather. We sat outside in a nice tent full of heaters. We were happy to find gluten-free options on the menu, including an excellent homemade GF pasta! Which is often hard to find. All of the food we tried including the Gem lettuce salad, Cacio de Pepe & pork neck gravy pastas, plus the chicken Parmesan was very, very delicious! One of our best meals this year. Service was friendly and easy. How to be back to try rest of menu, and hopefully be able to sit inside again.
We wanted to take advantage of outdoor dining one more time before the weather turns. I was impressed with the social distancing measures put in place and that they were taking temperatures of everyone that came through. We ordered the ricotta and burrata starters and then shared the chicken Parmesan (and still had left overs!) everything was delicious.
My wife and I we had an amazing time celebrating our 20th anniversary of marriage! The service and food was outstanding and delicious. Great Italian food!
Perfect experience. Outstanding service, delicious food, beautiful patio. Will definitely return!
This place knows how to do service and hospitality right! And the food is just to die for!
1st time at this restaurant & I will definitely be back! Service & food was beyond!!
The General Manager was on point with our request.
Food was awesome. Very social distancing and spacious. Felt safe!!!!
Great food, service and ambiance! Our servers were wonderful!
This is one our favorite restaurants in the city. If you go I recommend getting the bucatini carbonara. It is one of the best I have every had. The Hemingway Margarita is fantastic and a must have.
Every element of our evening was great...from reception to the meal and dessert service. Comfortable environment with good spacing of tables, extra attention to Covid preparation and attentive service from the team. Can't wait to go back.
Amazing service! They treated us with a dessert after our meal because it was our anniversary. Will be back!
Formento's did a great job making this a safe place to dine during difficult Covid times. My family felt very secure eating an amazing dinner indoors!
The server offered a comparable bottle of wine but it was more than double the cost and I felt taken advantage of
Pretty basic Italian place. Extensive wine list. Nice looking cocktail list but tried both th e Porch-Ade and a Moscow Mule, and there were not good. The wrong balance of ingredients to have much of a flavor other than too sweet. The Burrata tasted store bought, not fresh and whippy like a fresh burrata typically is. The meatballs were good, but the mains we ordered, the Tortelloni and the Orecchiette were just okay. Decent portions but lacked much complexity in the flavor. The pumpkin pie was a joke and again, tasted store bought and not fresh. It's definitely not worth the prices.
Exceptional food, service and ambience
Safe protocols maintained for Covid
Wonderful hostesses. Great service. Odd choice of music for this type of restaurant and extremely loud!
Everything was fine, service and food.
Excellent food and accommodating to dietary needs. Attention to detail!!
Pre-COVID Formento’s bar/lounge was one of my happy hour go-to-spots. Sat outside for happy hour as I don’t feel comfortable sitting inside but was unable to order off the happy hour menu from outside. I can understand their rational in doing so to a point but can honestly say I probably won’t return. I spent $20 during that experience. If I was able to order off the HH hour menu I probably would have spent $80 and returned until outdoor dining isn’t possible.
Loved everything about Formento’s! From the drinks to the dishes. We definitely got our money’s worth for how big the dishes and appetizers were. Our server was friendly and helpful. Definitely one of our new go to places! We also got a free dessert for our anniversary-a nice touch.
Food was fairly good. However, we ordered two side dishes with our entrees and they never arrived. The server did not check back with us after the entrees came out to see if we needed anything else. We were hungry so we went ahead and ate. It wasn’t until we were finished that the server came back and asked how everything was. When we told him that we never received our two sides he did apologize. He then gave my daughter a slice of chocolate cake (for her birthday) and did not charge us for that. He tried to make it right.
My friend and I had a wonderful Saturday night dinner at Formentos. We ordered the calamari, tortelloni, and bucatini which were all fabulous and delicious. The vibes were perfect a Saturday night and ending to a girls trip is Chicago. Would definitely recommend and be visiting again!!
Wish they had heaters on the road side of the street
It took us one hour to get a table despite having a reservation.
Despite making a reservation, we waited for an hour before getting a table. The manager was rude and unapologetic!
Great! Food and service was great!
The food was fantastic and the team was super accommodating. Great experience!
Delicious! More on the pricey side, but worth it on a special occasion
we had a great evening w/great food & service whilst enjoying the outdoors - right on randolph street!! 🤩 highly recommend!! ✨
My boyfriend and I went out to celebrate our anniversary, and had a wonderful time. We felt safe and comfortable the whole time. Even with the time restrictions we never felt rushed and our server was kind and helpful throughout the meal.
Great gluten-free accommodations! The cacio e pepe was probably the best pasta I've ever had. And beautiful, covid-safe outdoor seating. Would return!
Great food and service! The ribeye was cooked to my specs. My wife enjoyed her chicken parm as well. Dessert was tasty as well and I like the texture of the chocolate cake. Ice cream was excellent was just churned right!
The quality of the food is very low for the price. Even Vapianos has a better quality pasta.
The service was good though,
Had a short wait for a table outside, but received free appetizers for the wait! Everything was delicious and the service was incredible, highly recommend :)
We dined here because we were in the neighborhood and would definitely come back for a date night!
Excellent food, fair prices and a beautiful patio set up in the West Loop. Service is always so genuine and kind here.
Waitstaff was overly rushing guests. Inconsistency in ordering and delivery of food. At the end of the day you know you are getting great Italian. Formento's doesn't disappoint but the service did.
