    Cozy Italian restaurant in a great gold coast location. Service was very friendly. Kitchen a bit slow perhaps due to a large group in private dining area. Food well worth the wait.

    MANY accolades to the new Chef, Sal ... who is better than terrific, not only as a chef, but as a person. The lamb chops were the best ever ... not only here but in the city! And he somehow talked us into having one of his homemade desserts (something I try to avoid) which was wonderful. He has a magic hand with chocolate. And the waitress, who was handling several tables, was her usual efficient and pleasant self. All in all, it was not only a pleasant evening, but entertaining!

    Waiter first day so wanted to give him benefit of the doubt. He put in wrong order for my entre. Dinner is served tell 3 people to eat as I have to send back incorrect order. No one came by to apologize, did not know if correct order was put in until it showed up after everyone else finished their meal. Waiter never came by to check on meal, refill the wine glasses etc. than I get the check and the incorrect entre was charged. No apologizes from anyone. I had to ask hostess to run credit card.

    The quality and authenticity of the food is excellent and 4.5-4.8 stars. However, most unlike the 100+ other authentic Italian restaurants I have dined in the US and Italy, either there first course or second course are definitely enough for dinner- Do not order a primo and secondi course in this restaurant as you would ordinarily do!!!! Tonight was unusual for them and they were short- staffed, but they really did their best. Just get ONE Course!!!!

    This is the first time I've had the Ahi Tuna (and the last) it was overcooked and didn't seem as fresh as other places. Was it frozen? More importantly, for some reason the chef refuses to substitute items ... i.e., pasta for potatoes, or vegetable for anything. This is unfortunate and certainly will make me think twice before bringing people to your restaurant. That said, as usual, the service was terrific and the new bartender, Ryan, was very pleasant.

    Very good authentic fresh Italian food . Well presented . Excellent wine list . Very friendly . The service was however very slow . Don’t know if it was because we were sitting outside by ourselves while inside was busy . But we did get comped for our dessert due to the long wait to even order dessert . But I would go back again for the food.

    We love La Storia! It is the perfect restaurant to showcase Chicago. It’s located in a beautiful mansion that survived the Chicago fire. The bar is perfect for cocktails with dark wood and low lights. The courtyard patio is a hidden gem…tucked between the historic mansions, exposed brick, twinkle lights, and secluded from the bustle of the city. The service is attentive and we’ve been here twice and neither me nor one of my guests have had a bad dish. In fact they have all raved. We can’t wait to come back and my out of town friends have added it to their list of recommendations.

    All the right ingredients for a memorable night out: terrific food, excellent wine list, friendly & professional service, a cozy atmosphere, and a fun soundtrack of mid-century classics. The Al Hircshfeld mural of Chicago personalities is a unique feature. P.S. Don't miss the orecchiette with sausage!

    Tried a few starters and a few pastas, all pastas were too bite in texture and flavors. Pastas definitely tasted home made. The final course was the veal chop which Wes deelish as well. It was just a bit odd that the server made us order everything at once even though we asked to put appetizers in first so it made me feel a little rushed in ordering. Lovely Chianti accompanied a tasty meal.

    Food was very good. We had an early dinner as we had reservations to a Jazz club for later in the evening. The ambiance is cozy and the wine list extensive. My only complaint is for as slow of evening our server was not very attentive. Which we found very surprising particularly for the amount each dish costs a la carte!

    One of my favorite restaurants in the neighborhood. I've tried about half the menu over the last few months and have enjoyed everything. The burrata, wild boar ragu, and tagliatelle bolognese are my top favorites. The service has always been fantastic. The ambience is somewhere between family and formal. Overall it's a great date spot for my wife and I.
