Enjoyed our entrees. Upon receipt of our check we were surprised to find a $1.00 extra charge for ice for all “on the rocks” drinks. In our case a $4.00 charge. Also a first a $3.00 extra charge for changing sauce from arrabiatta to vodka on a pasta dish.

Food was very good. Only issue was the parking. We had a 5:00pm reservation for dinner for ten people. This was a business dinner. We arrived separately at 4:50pm. They have valet which is great because there is nowhere to park in Hinsdale. Only problem is the valet Parker didn’t show up for work until 5:20. We circled the neighborhood looking for parking for 40 minutes until he finally showed up. If you open at 5:00pm. Your car parker should be there by 4:45pm. Started our evening extremely aggravated.

Absolutely beautiful spot to have had Easter brunch.
Atmosphere was a 10 , Food was a 10 and the decor is cozy chic so the comfort level was an 11. We really enjoyed it . What a find , very happy we went. Can wait to go for dinner.
I highly suggest it to all who enjoy cozi chic with great food and vibe to match.

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.

We had a fantastic meal at Il Poggiolo! The bread was so fresh with the softest inside and crusty outside. Creative cocktails were delusions. Our main course came out hot and flavorful - really authentic tasting. Will definitely go back!

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.
