Formento's was awesome for my group of 10. It was a great atmosphere for a celebration and the food was amazing!!
Always fine food and good service. This place bustles with young people, families, and also older diners. Atmosphere is extremely friendly. Just a little on the pricey side.
Staff was kind and welcoming but service was slow and most of us weren't thrilled with our dishes.
What a great place! Just came for the second time and was even more impressed than the first! Had a large party and everyone loved it! It’s a must visit! The best food, first class service and second to none options! Highly highly recommend!!
Formento’s was amazing. Our server, Antonio, was very personable and made great recommendations. The Bucatini was some of the best pasta I’ve ever eaten. Would highly recommend
Ive eaten here before and had a great
Experience. This time was good with the exception of being seated around 9 for an 815 reservation. We were told they were over booked and running behind.... Our table was cramped and pushed against the pole to make room for more tables. It was an awkward spot...
Loved the olives
Linda was an amazing server and the ambiance was beautiful and easy to have a conversation with friends we haven't seen in years. The meatballs were very good for an appetizer and the entrée portions were generous. We had the veal chop, Branzino, and brick chicken. All three were very good. The side of pasta was tasty but for $17 it was very small. The side of broccoli rapini was very good and enough for four people. Drink pours were very stingy, with the second one being smaller than the first. Aside from that, I will likely go back again.
Awesome great service
Delicious meal. Friendly staff. The room was a little dark for my taste, but it made sense with the decor. They were wonderful with my young child.
Outstanding pasta, rightsized so you can enjoy many different things and not require a take home box.
The waitress was overly pushy. She crossed the boundaries of attentive and pushed us to order food we didn’t want. I didn’t have more than 5 minutes at a time to talk to my friend without getting interrupted for a sales pitch.
We have dined here at least a half dozen times. The food is always excellent-well prepared and appetizing. Our server was also fantastic-helpful and attentive without being too obtrusive. We had a lovely bottle of wine which complemented our meal perfectly. The only reason I've given 4 stars instead of 5 is that it is a bit pricey. But if you're in the mood for a nice night out for a special occasion, Formento's will not disappoint.
The server was a bit curt. She made me feel like I didn’t understand dining out, which is truly not the case. It was really loud, and the food was ok. The gentlemen clearing the table and filling up waters were polite and punctual. The manager was great as well.
This is our weekly neighborhood go to Italian restaurant and we are never bored with the menus changing options and great service. Always feel satisfied and happy after dinner!
Great Italian food and drinks on the menu. The atmosphere is pretty nice for a couple's date night. Only issue we had was that they were running behind and we had to wait about 15 minutes past our schedule time to sit down.
Always a positive experience in every way! Great managers, front desk hostess , servers and bus boys!
Excellent food, friendly service, delicious dessert.
Scallops, pork cap, and octopus were cooked just right. One of the best pork caps that I’ve had. Chocolate cake also was delicious and is a must-have!
Excellent service with great tasting food and drinks.
Really liked their service!
We had a terrible experience. Our server was not attentive and. Or very knowledgeable about the menu. It took forever for her to take our order and even longer for the food to arrive. We had the crab avocado toast and lobster risotto for starters which were actually quite good. It then took about 40 minutes for our entrees to even arrive by which point we were incredibly antsy and starving. Our server only came to tell us our food was behind just before it arrived. When it did, my scallops were cold and had no seasoning. My boyfriend’s steak was cold. It was sent back to the kitchen to be re-fired yet it still came back cold. We sent it back and asked for the check. We went home hungry having only shared two starters which didn’t sit well for either of us. We both have stomach aches the next day. I’m so disappointed because we’d been looking forward to this reservation for over a month. Not a good ending to our anniversary, unfortunately.
Food and atmosphere was good.
We had phenomenal service. Everything we ordered was incredible. Highly recommend. Will definitely be coming back again soon!
Service was impeccable and really appreciated the sommelier coming over to help me try something new and different and respecting the price point.
All our servers recommendations were amazing and we ordered them all!!
Definitely will be back when back in Chicago 😊
Treating a long tine friend and co-goodie companion to dinner who was visiting from Atlanta. Seating was too close for intimate conversation.... the server and I talked about my preferences for a solid block of ice in my Manhattan but changed to an old fashion because of bourbon choice. Drink was lots of small cubes that watered the drink down. It was corrected. Loved loved love my kale salad. He lined the avocado toast and squid ink pasta. My fish, the cod special was a very small portion, the fish was not seasoned at all and was barely warm. I ate less than half while trying to get my waiters attention. By the time he arrived I was so disappointed with the dis and service that I just sent it back. They wanted to remake the dish and also offered me the menu to pick something else. I no longer had an appetite for dinner but we shared the chocolate lot cake which was very good....
Outstanding service!! Very good food and fun neighborhood.
Beware! If you have nut alergies do not order lamb chops! Pesto dressing has pine nuts in it. Server did not tell us about that. We ordered replacement and ended up being charged for both portions.
Food was mediocre at best.
Great food - service can be a but hectic and rushed - the place needs to chill
Amazing pasta and risotto
We had a wonderful dinner. Our server Chloe, was so sweet, attentive and gracious. It was my sisters birthday which she remembered when dessert arrived.
The food was flavorful, perfectly seasoned and yummy.
We will be back, and soon!
My husband and I came here for our anniversary and the service was amazing. The servicing staff congratulated us and even brought our complimentary dessert. Every we had was delicious. The squid ink pasta and the lobster risotto were our favorites.
This was my 5th visit here. The prior visits were excellent with outstanding food quality and great service.
This visit disappointed on many levels. We ordered 3 appetizers, while good, were HEAVILY salted. The main dishes were average, considering the price point for the items. The dessert was excellent.
As far as service , we felt like we were at a fast food restaurant- the waiter stopped by once to take our orders, then never again! He would scurry and run by our table, but would not make eye contact, hence I could never get his attention.
I asked the ‘bus boy’ for the waiter, instead the maitre d’ came and took our dessert order and bought us the check!????
The maitre d’ recognized the lack of service and did not charge us for some of the items in compensation of poor service and the 2.5 hours our meal ended up taking because of poor service.
More and more restaurants seem to be using salt very liberally in their foods, hiding the taste of the ingredients. Sadly, formentos seems to have gone this route....
We thoroughly enjoyed our meal. In particular the veal parm was delicious and the portion size was really for two people. The service staff member was superb.
The food here is amazing especially the cauliflower and the ricotta mousse. The pastas that we had were also exceptional as was salmon and scallops!
Wonderful service, excellent service, very generous portions. The wine selection was perfect. We had a lovely experience with really tasty, subtle tastes , not overdone food
Great service ! The Risotto and Octopus were really good , skid pasta and prawns could be better
I had dinner on the outside patio with 2 friends. The staff were friendly, food was great, portions were sized well (not enormous). Only noise was from pedestrians and cars, nothing crazy. I found this to be a great place for a casual/nicer dinner with a date, friends, parents, coworkers. Per person was around $70 (with cocktails) so it's not for every night, but also not crazy.
