Il Poggiolo Ratings and Reviews
Went with 6 girlfriends and knew we would be staying for a bit b/c the middle school play we were supposed to go to that night was cancelled due to the weather. I had asked for a corner table knowing we would be there awhile. They gave that to us and the server - Heather - had been forewarned! She was great and didn't rush us- very very helpful with menu and wine bottle selections. We stayed for 3.5 hours and she was great the whole time, she even has a sense of humor (yes, we tipped appropriately)! The Valentines menu was delicious - some got the short rib tortellini and some got the scallops. dessert was tiramisu, brownie, and something else. It was all yummy. It is loud in there when it's busy. Ask for Heather's section if you go there. :-)
We had heard good things about this Italian restaurant and it lived up to that praise. The dining room is extremely attractive and our server was pleasant and helpful. Delicious mushroom soup was followed by equally good entrees. My roasted salmon with white beans was very flavorful and genuinely Italian, a pleasant change from the usual offerings at most Italian restaurants. We will make a point of returning to this Hinsdale gem.
Love this restaurant! Always have and it did not disappoint this time. Went on a very very cold winter day so there were not many in the restaurant. My guest and I lingered a while talking, and the server was attentive, but not at all pushy. Let us just chill and order when we were ready. Have never had a bad meal there either. Manager came to talk to us a few times during the lunch. Again, wasn't busy at all, but it was a nice gesture. I'll go back again and again.
I was disappointed in the taste of the food. The bolognese was bland. The limoncello was surprisingly bland. Even my 6 year old daughter found it rather unpalatable. The kitchen put beef in my brother’s meat sauce when he specifically ordered pork. My niece said the veal was too dry and salty. We will not returning to this restaurant.
Food, service and ambiance were great when we arrived. But, being more in the category of fine dining, we were surprised when multiple families with children began to arrive for dinner. Although most of the children were well-behaved, this is not the type of restaurant (nor menu) for children.
We came here after not coming for a while. I had remembered it loud and not knowing what to order but this time we were upstairs and I think it wasn’t so loud up there but anyways I enjoyed being able to carry on a conversation. Everything we ordered was delicious. We will come back soon.
Food was outstanding. We were glad we were on upper level, noise level was better. Main floor was very crowded and noisy
Service good. We didn't have enough time to linger. Would have enjoyed coffee and dessert, I'm sure!
PS Complimentary valet parking was great because parking in downtown Hinsdale is difficult.
Went for lunch with friends, took us 20 minutes to get our drinks and take our order. Another 30 minutes until our food arrived, and one member of our group had to cancel her order because she had to leave. Drinks were not refilled, waitress was inattentive. Food was average, a bit on the expensive side.
We made a reservation for 6 for my freshman daughter's homecoming group. A week before Homecoming, the restaurant called and told us that due to the number of homecoming reservations, they would offer an optional $30 fixed menu (including tip and taxes) to the homecoming crowd to make sure everyone. I thought this was a great idea and strongly suggested to the girls in the group that they take advantage of this menu. On Homecoming Night, one of the girls was unable to make dinner due to a sports event which ran late. The restaurant charged the group of 5 girls an extra $30 for the "optional" price fixed menu for the missing girl. I could not believe the restaurant would do this to a group of young girls - it was embarrassing and upsetting to them, as some had only brought the $30 they needed for their own meal. In my opinion this was out of bounds, and the restaurant would never have tried to charge a group of adults for this. This restaurant took advantage of a group of young girls and ruined their homecoming dinner, and I can't in good faith recommend anyone go to a restaurant who would treat their young customers this poorly.
We come here fairly often and always enjoy our meal. It's a nice setting and it's consistently good food. I don't remember the wine by the glasses being so expensive in the past. It would be nice if there were a couple of moderately priced wine by the glass. I couldn't find one red I wanted that was less than $16 a glass. The new small plates seem a little pricey for what you get, as well. I had a tiny little salad to start and two scallops for my dinner. With my two drinks, our bill for two people was $175 with tip. Seemed a little excessive this time. Did the prices go up recently, I'm wondering.
We've had several great meals here, however service on Father's Day was horrible . We had to wait a long time to order and receive our food. Our water wasn't even refilled during the meal and we had to flag our waiter down to get an additional drink to have with our main meal. They were clearly overwhelmed with the crowd and couldn't take care of all of its patrons. Several other tables walked out because they weren't served in a timely manner. It's a shame because the food was good, but wth the prices you pay the service was unacceptable - AND on Father's Day! Sadly, we won't be going back.
