My girlfriend and I came in for our anniversary. I don’t usually write reviews but the restaurant and our server, Sydney, absolutely deserves some recognition. Our reservation was a little behind but we didn’t mind at all, we just hung out at the bar for a few minutes and grabbed a cocktail while we waited. As soon as we got to our table, they brought over some Prosecco to celebrate which we thought was absolutely adorable. Our server Sydney comes by and she’s fantastic. Knowledgeable about the menu, hospitable, happy, great energy and honestly, everything you want when you go out, especially for a special occasion. The meal went on and of course we took her recommendations on everything and it was fantastic. And to top everything off their somm brought us some amari to pair with our desserts that we got at the end of the night. Overall Formento’s was every bit of an amazing experience and will recommend to everyone
Loved! The food was outstanding and the service was impeccable. We had calamari as a starter and it was almost too much for us to finish, in fear we wouldn’t be able to eat dinner. Had to skip dessert! The restaurant feels dark in the best way, and cozy. It was pouring rain outside and it felt warm and inviting inside. Really had a nice experience.
Great food service special placr
Food was amazing! Highly recommended!
IT WAS GREAT .....EVERYTHING ON THE MARK ......GREAT STAFF
The atmosphere had a great ambiance and the good and drinks were delicious!
I made this reservation for a friend. He told me that he thoroughly enjoyed himself.
Great food and superb service. However, a family with a SCREAMING child was seated next to us. The noise was borderline intolerable. Nonetheless, the wait staff and food were outstanding.
Service was attentive and overall (slightly up scale) atmosphere was a great.
Corporate space with no real ambiance. Decent homemade pasta, but other than that unremarkable. I wouldn’t balk at coming back, but I wouldn’t ever try to.
Good pasta! Good drinks!
Wonderful restaurant, will definitely think of them again in the future for special occasions!
Celebrated my birthday here and it was the perfect place to on a Sunday night. Great food and service as well..highly recommend!
Fabulous as always! Wonderful food, ambiance and hospitality.
Food was great! Ambiance was great too. Espresso martini is too sweet and has no espresso
Just okay but not great. The food was just ok. The burrata was extremely small and overwhelmed with tomato and pine nuts . The
carbonara had very little prosciutto in it and was a bit over salted. My husband commented that the steak was good but for me the highlights were the side dishes. Lastly the drinks were good but overshadowed by the poor service (my table received our food an hour after being seated). I’m disappointed because I’ve only heard good things about this place which is why I chose to have my birthday dinner here. Unfortunately it was a major miss for me. I do not recommend this restaurant.
Delicious food and drinks here- the carbonara was amazing, and I recommend the espresso martini for dessert. You could tell that they were short staffed here, but our waitress was very pleasant nonetheless and checked in on us as often as she could. Even though it took a while to get our order in, the food and drinks came out quickly. I came with a friend for a girls night, but we both thought this would be a great date spot.
The food at Formento's was delicious and the outdoor seating was gorgeous! Our server was probably the best part. Enrico brought two of us mocktails AND a slice of amazing chocolate hazelnut cake in honor of my friend's birthday. So sweet and thoughtful and he made our experience that much better. Thank you, Enrico!
The whipped feta starter was amazing! I had the bucatini cacio e pepe as my main course and it was perfectly made and the exact right portion size. I finished off with the salted caramel gelato which was to die for!
Appetizers were quite good and food was delish. Would go back.
Great service and great food
Amazing pasta. Everything was 5 star.
In town for a conference and, as can happen, changed our head count at least three times. Yet, they always accommodated, even upon arrival. Travis took care of us at the bar and was so exceptional that we requested he handle our table, which he did! Food and wine (great list!) were fantastic. We’ll be back… and better organized next time, promise!
We had reservations, therefore we (3 people) were a seated at a small table that seemed to be for 2 people. We immediately requested a bigger table. The host checked for larger available table. Upon finding one he asked if we would like to see it first since it was near the bar. We accepted it. We started with an appetizer, meatball which were outstanding, and then entrees (veal, swordfish and pasta) which were wonderful and plentiful.
The pasta was a smaller portion and the pricing was a little expensive. Overall, it was delicious but a bit pricey.
$45 for branzino - that was so thin and small it really could not have been more than 2oz. Very dry. Terrible. They sat everyone on top of each other even though there were numerous open tables. Not rushing back - too many other options available
Rushed to get food orders in; food was good. Near the kitchen and dealing with lots of traffic and waiters shouting “corner”
We gave this venue high ratings because the food is exceptional and the service very good
It is unfortunately very loud which detracted from the wonderful experience we had
Great food. My issue is that when I labeled it a birthday dinner and also told them again at the restaurant they did nothing for it. Even though the staff said they would handle it. The food and ambiance were very good though
Great vibe and some of the best pasta I’ve had in Chicago.
We’ve made a point of coming here whenever we visit Chicago and it’s totally worth it. We came with friends who ate here for the first time and were equally impressed. The chef took the trouble of coming out to meet us and gave us his signature chocolate cake to try. Each course was better than the one before. Get the whipped ricotta and buratta tomato salad for appetizers. All of the pastas are incredible and worth trying. It was so special to be treated like family. Highly recommend this restaurant.
One of the worst restaurants in west loop. Starting with the front desk hostess all the way to the manager, they all have attitude. They have forgotten that they have a job because customers are there. We were there on a Saturday afternoon and our table bill ends up to be around $600 and what we got for that money? A rude waiter who argues with my wife that you can’t have your salad with your meal and you need to eat it before the main course, he literally threw the bread basket in front of me because I asked him where is the the bread basket that I asked for 15 minutes ago, he shrugged his shoulders and says it may be in that tray looking at a tray a few feet away, then got upset and went and got the bread and hit it in front of me on the table and walked away. I eventually asked to see his manger and with a lot of attitude he finally got me the manager. I asked to be served by another waiter.
As for the food, it had no taste or flavor. My chicken parmigiana was dry, chewy and made of tasteless cheap chicken. Pasta wasn’t better either.
They ruined our night. Stay away from this place.
We had a wonderful evening!! The food was outstanding and service was excellent. Highly recommend the pasta dishes and the squid appetizer. This will be in our Chicago rotation for sure!
Very nice place. Ambiance received a lower grade because we were outdoors and we had factors beyond the control of the establishment, such as liud emergency vehicles, and even a panhandler begging for money. Inside probably would have been better.
Service on point.
Everything was perfect. The appetizers and entrees were absolutely delicious. The service was 2nd to none! Highly recommend.
Excellent place for a special occasion. Food and service were great!
