My bone-in filet was four bites of meat, to the bone. BOH should never have presented the cut.
Always a wonderful experience with amazing food! Thank you!!!
Excellent food and server! Would definitely come back!
Drinks were good, apps were good but pasta was too mushy, and lacked flavor.
Amazing service. The server answered all my questions and gave incredible recommendations. We were incredibly happy with everything.
Great food and service, plus delicious gluten-free pasta options! Don't miss the Cacio de Pepe pasta with added truffles! My husband loved the carrot cake - best he's ever had. Definitely will be back again, for seasonal menu changes and delicious foods!
Incredible menu, delicious food. It’s fast becoming my favorite restaurant in the area.
Service was terribly slow and portions were extremely small. I see no reason to go back
Loved our server and we apologize for being so loud. Big excited group :)
Run of the mill, bad service, forgot the pasta w/ chicken parm, didn't know the wines, etc. I never leave a bad review, so really sorry - just not the A-game during our visit.
All of the food was delicious and the atmosphere was lovely as well! Looking forward to coming back.
Food was amazing!
Our first time there, this was by far the best Italien Restaurant... The staff was great, the Chef came to our Table and told us that when the guest are happy than he is happy... We will be back on our next trip to Chicago
Overall the dinner experience was underwhelming. Upon arrival, two very gracious hostesses greeted us, and took us to our table upstairs. The dining room downstairs had a great vibe to it, but upstairs appeared to be an event space-turned-dining room (I get it, it's covid and they're trying to make room for everyone and it's tough). I would suggest for others dining here to request main floor dining though. As for the food, the salad was exceptionally tasty. the rest of the meal left much to be desired. the meatballs were average. The chicken parmesan was not impressive and the spaghetti that accompanied it was just not good. The other dish (pesto pasta with veggies) was also not appetizing. As we were trying to eat the main course, we decided that it would be best to ask for the check and go across the street to Jeni's (ice cream) - which was so good and the best part of our evening.
Our expectations for Formento's were high, and maybe that was the problem. Overall, You can get a much much better dinner at other places in the city.
One bright spot to the evening was service - the server was fantastic and attentive.
I seriously love Formento’s. Without fail, the food is exceptional and everything else follows from that.
Fantastic food! Very knowledgeable and friendly staff. Casual ambiance, not too loud.
Salad was wilted and the shrimp scampi was charcoal and over cooked, which we did send back. Our drinks were great though. Our waiter was great!
The place is great. Only downside it was freezing. They had the AC cranking. I recommend but wear a sweater.
Exceptional food and service made our celebration feel really special.
A little disjointed at first... the printer ran out of receipt paper. Eventually, service was good.
Loved the menu. We found something for everyone and the chef had his A-game on. So did the bartender. The server, not so much. Not attentive or interested in providing good service.
Amazing food and great service! My family really enjoyed eating here.
Got a free dessert for our anniversary.
Workers were courteous and attentive. Food was awesome. Authentic and excellent tasting. Atmosphere was cool and lively.
We went for my daughter’s 26th birthday and had a great time. The waiters food suggestions were perfect. Everything tastes great. I had a fish special and my daughter had the chicken Parmesan which were both very good. The side of potatoes was not special. Meatballs, kale salad and rolls were delicious. When I’m in Chicago again I would definitely visit this restaurant again.
Overall amazing food, great ambience and service. They made my wife's birthday special and did a free piece of chocolate cake (delicious)! Branzino (sea bass) and Strozapretti (spring version) and both were flavorful and high-quality.
Clarification: the pasta prices on the menu are for half portions (3oz), this wasn't necessarily small but if you're really hungry you may want to order the full portion, which costs a little less than double the price. This wasn't clear from the menu and could have been made clearer on the menu.
we ordered the crispy potatoes, cauliflower (starter), orecchiette seafood pasta. every thing was delicious. Didn't like the kale salad too much.
We didn’t get half of a meal and it didn’t come until we were done with dinner. The worst part was that they said they would rectify it but never really said they were sorry. It really was embarrassing because we brought friends there for a special dinner. I am not sure if we will be back.
2nd time at Formentos and an excellent experience from all involved. Great date night spot with a menu full of Italian classics.
Amazing halal steak. Our server was excellent and really made sure our meal didn’t contain bacon or wine. Calamari was fresh and spicy. Squid ink pasta was amazing. Prime rib perfection. Dessert we got tiramisu and chocolate cake always a winner.
The service was so bad that the food didn’t even matter. Meatballs were good...I’d recommend them but the server had to be flagged down anytime we needed anything. Really disappointing.
Excellent food and service with great ambience in the West Loop.
I wish I would have tried this place sooner! The food was delicious but what really blew me away was the incredible service. Everyone from the hosts, server, wait assistants— seriously everyone was so great. Cant wait to come back!
Amazing calamari, I am a calamari snob, and this was the best I've ever had by far. Carbonara to die for. Server was very good and helpful. I highly doubt anyone would be disappointed dining here.
Great wait staff and awesome food. I would recommend to a friend.
The food was very taste but WAY too salty. I couldn't even eat the potatoes, mushrooms and brussel sprouts.
Amazing food and I can't wait to come back. Staff was great too.
