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!
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.
My husband and I had our anniversary dinner here. This was our second time dining at this restaurant. The food was delicious, as expected. He had chicken, which he as raving over. I had squid ink orecchiette with rock shrimp. We had a lovely creme brûlée for dessert. The staff was amazing and everyone practiced social distancing and wore masks. Highly recommend and we will return.
Great food and service. Covid conscious protocols in place.
Great service, friendly, professional, and safe. It was a very nice experience
This was my first experience dining out in the time of covid. I felt VERY comfortable. The staff was very friendly and everything was safe. I dined in the patio and I was very appreciative of all of the precautions. My server was very attentive in what I can only imagine is a stressful time. I will definitely be going back.
Meatballs and pasta are incredible. Get the Southside cocktail!
Service was impeccable!!! Food was very good as was the wine and desert. Will be going back for sure!!
Food and service was fantastic. Bit expensive (chicken Parmesan was $36).
Food was good seasoned to perfection
Excellent food and service - including a great kids' menu!
Very nice outdoor dining tables. But better to book after sunset as the tables are west facing and very sunny. 🌞
Food was sub par.
Lamb chops way too charred.
Meatballs werent bad.
Not much bread.
Our server, Maddison, was great! We had a bit of a mixup with one of the items ordered and she quickly corrected it and took it off our bill, which she didn't have to do. She was kind and super understanding which made it a great experience for us. Wanted to highlight her effort to make it a great dinner.
As a whole, the food was tasty and it was a nice set up in their outdoor dining area that they have expanded into the street.
Amazing homemade pasta! Love the outdoor seating !
Better value options in the area (Piccolo Sogno and Monteverde)
