This was our first time at IL Poggiolo and the experience did not disappoint.

They have complementary valet parking, which was a plus because the downtown Hinsdale area can be a challenge to find parking. We had a nice table along the wall that had half bench seating and half chairs. We started out with a couple glasses of wine. They have a nice wine list with lots of options. They also have a full bar that serves cocktails and some beer options. The food was fantastic. My wife had Chicken Marsala. The boneless chicken breasts were perfectly cooked. The sauce and mushrooms had a nice Marsala wine sweet taste that was flavorful. The sauce went perfectly with the chicken and the mashed potatoes that were done just right. She also substituted her vegetable with broccoli that was great. I had the Eight Finger Cavatelli, Meatballs, Grilled Sausage in Arrabbiata Sauce. What a delicious combination. The cavatelli was fresh pasta that was cooked perfectly. They were quite longer than expected, which is what I assumed eight finger meant. The meatball and Italian sausage were delicious. The meatball was moist and tasty. The sausage was just the right amount of spicy. The arrabbiata sauce was fresh and delicious.

We will definitely come back and looking forward to trying all of the options on the menu. Since we moved to this area Il Poggiolo is not far from our house. I think this could be our new go to Italian restaurant!

I highly recommend it and plan to be back again.

Wonderful evening spent celebrating our daughters birthday. Every dish was thoughtfully and deliciously prepared. We ate up stairs in the loft which was nice for a bit more privacy and our waiter was helpful and attentive.

I enjoy going to Il Poggiolo. The staff is always so nice and willing to accommodate a request. The food is delicious. The waiting staff are knowledgeable about the menu. The bus staff is busy refilling your glass, clearing away a dish, or wrapping up your left overs. It is a relaxing environment where you can enjoy a conversation and a nice meal.

The most wonderful thing about this restaurant is how wonderful it is (food, service, cleanliness, atmosphere) but also how friendly the staff is. We brought our two little kids (3 and 6 months) to dinner and they were very kind to us, understanding of the noise, and considerate!

I loved the food and ambiance. However, it was disappointing that they could not “see” our reservation. They did accommodate us though. Although our server was very friendly, she forgot to bring butter even after being asked. They were probably short staffed. I will give the place another try.

Way too many kids unsupervised & over indulged. Children have no place here. Stick to somewhere with a children’s menu. Do what responsible parents like we do, get a sitter for 2hrs.

We were very frustrated last night when we went to Il Poggio in Snowmass Colorado and they said that they are not affiliated with OpenTable. There is nothing on your website that says that this is il Poggio is in Chicago. I thought that this app showed restaurants based on where you are unless you designate otherwise. This was a very frustrating experience.

Food was descent with service ok but the place is too dark. Nobody could see their menu and you could see many people taking out their phones to use the light. Consider putting small candles at each table. Also, tables are crammed together.

Every time we visit Il Poggiolo the food is delicious. They even had half price bottles of wine when we where there. I love the Rigatoni, but ask your server to order the Rigatoni ripieni (can't remember the exact spelling) and add the crumbled sausage. Delicous! The desserts were delicious. We shared tiramisu and chocolate gelato. The cannoli is also very good....they come two to an order, so you can always take one home for later. Our family loves this restaurant, and be sure to say hi to Cleo at the bar!

It was just a sketchy night. Lot's of attention at the table from server, but when she was gone she was gone. Over promised on ability to tweak menu items but then didn't really deliver a good product and the time it took for it to arrive was not worth it.
