We had tickets for WWDTM across the street at Chase Auditorium and were pressed for time. The staff moved fast made GREAT cocktails, food was great comfort food with euro touch, we got fed well and made curtain time. Its the PERFECT place if you are going to an evening show.
Food was great and they were accommodating of our theater plans.
We arrived a few minutes early and were immediately seated. Wait staff was right there to take drink order and the great service continued until we left. The food was perfect from presentation to temperature to taste.
IT was very nice. Just do not order the Chicken Marsala it was chicken that was dry and brown gravey not good at all. But then I order what my husband had and it was Amazing . Best Ravioli ever!
Great ambiance, great food. I would recommend to book reservations in advance since they tend to book quickly. The overall food and service was good. The waiter was very attentive and checked on us quite often, which is a plus considering how busy they were.
Service was fantastic but the food was subpar. The scallops were overcooked and the pasta was bland. I won't be going back. There are far better Italian places in Chicago.
Love the Village as an old standard. The menu specials were great and a good change form the
standard fare. You can count on La Cantina for a satisfying meal.
I was disappointed. I used to go to La Cantina when I worked in Chicago and have memories of excellent food. Maybe I just ordered the wrong thing and we were rushed to go to the theatre that evening.
It was just ok. Ambiance is good, service was good, food was disappointing, it was just ok. One thing to note, it is NOT handicapped accessible. There is a long flight of stairs you have to go down to access the restaurant and there is no elevator. Something to be aware of if you are dining with someone with mobility issues.
Caesar Salad was very good. Soup and pastas were of large size, but mediocre quality.
Excellent food and experience
Haven't been here for quite a while, but the food was as good as we remembered. Great meal and outstanding service.
We had an excellent meal at La Cantina after seeing Hamilton. Great location; great food; friendly wait staff. I will definitely be back.
This is a great place - Great Food! Great Location and the Staff is Awesome!
It was our daughter and her friends 16th birthday and we brought them to Chicago to see Hamilton. We chose La Cantina for our meal before the show. It truly enhanced an amazing weekend. The service was spot on, the ambiance is wonderful, and the food was excellent. The calamari we had for an appetizer is the best calamari we have ever had. We had lasagne, chicken, shrimp, and filet and all of the meals were world class with generous portions. The waiter sang Happy Birthday to the girls and we will all remember it forever. I would highly recommend La Cantina if you are in Chicago.
Great Dinner before the show at the Chicago Theatre!
Excellent customer service and very accommodating for theater crowd
Petra is awesome! She made great suggestions for the menu and wine. The steaks were perfect and the sides yummy. We had a wonderful time. Thank you.
I had one of the "La Cantina Chophouse Specialties" and it was only OK. Honestly, in a town with this strong of an Italian community, I'd hoped for better.
The location and decor were absolutely amazing though.
Excellent food and service. We were impressed with the ambience.
Had an amazing waitress and great service.
Old Italian served up in a grotto type atmosphere. Server Mark as excellent.I like old style sauces. This place did not disappoint. I can get a great steak at home, but I cannot get Mama's gravy. Salad was so good, you know simplicity is garlic. Warm bread olive oil and good Parmesan make the meal.
The multiple dining rooms used to have walls lined with tanks of colorful fish which made for a relaxing ambiance. I miss the fish. Now the ambiance is just that of a basement. Food was tasty. Food was tasty. Service was efficient but impersonal. The Village restaurant upstairs in the same complex is more fun.
Service was excellent. For our meal we choose the theatre package, as we were attending a play after dinner. The chicken parm was just average, as was the soup and cannoli.
I would dine there, but I would order something different.
Great service - felt very welcome and like part of the family. Excellent dinners - salmon, risotto, grilled calamari. Cheesecake was just okay, but overall I nice dining experience.
Our waiter was excellent - service is just as important as food quality.
Great service. Great food. Great ambiance. Perfect dinner and experience before the play.
Always excellent food, service and personable staff.
The staff at La Cantina and very nice and accommodating extremely professional and made me feel at home.
We had tickets to the nearby show and they were great about getting us out in time. Great Italian food and we felt it was a good value.
We had a lovely dinner before the theater. The restaurant has been around since 1955 and is still very enjoyable.
We flew into Chicago mid afternoon and this restaurant was within walking distance of the hotel. Being Valentine's Day, I made reservations weeks in advance. We arrived 15 min early and were seated immediately. We received a complimentary appetizer after we showed a business card for the concierge at the hotel. The service and food were quite good. I didn't score as 5 stars as my 'cannoli professional' husband mentioned he has had much better.
Very nice. Sat at the bar before dinner and were unexpectedly (enjoyably) joined by two friends. Restaurant was very good at easily and unquestionably finding us a table for 6 (we had a reservation for 4). Service was excellent at the bar and at the table. A great variety of food was ordered and everyone enjoyed what they had. Good food - Great service - Good time -- nothing more is important!
Seafood Ravioli was delicious and thanks to our waiter I got the Canniloni with white sauce on one and red sauce in the other. It was perfect. Will definitely return on my next trip back to Chicago!
Great food, ambiance, and outstanding service. Great place for Italian food and drinks.
Great food, vibrant Theatre crowd but service good and timely.
Wonderful Food and Excellent service, staff is friendly, caring and very knowledgable, food is excellent well prepared and served to your prefection! 5 stars!!
Great location but avg food and seating felt like dinning in a basement. Low ceilings and quite loud.
Great menu, server was excellent. Food was tasty
A pre-Hamilton dinner. Staff was very attentive to our needs, food was excellent. We told the staff we needed to get to the theater, and they got everything out to us without making it appear rushed, or losing any quality. Can't wait to go back and have a nice leisurely meal!
Great food, very quiet, great and attentive service throughout the evening. Would definitely come back and try different dishes, worth the drive into the city
