I have never had worse service than we did here - will not be returning. Food was Ok.
Recommend the beet salad and the bronzing. Fabulous!
We went there for our anniversary and I am a sucker for a great patio and this place did not disappoint. Thankfully the weather held out for us to sit in their back patio which was beautiful. Food portions I would say are definitely on the small side, but the orecchiette/ravioli/arancini were absolutely delicious. Would definitely recommend.
Beautiful experience at La Storia, food was delicious and really authentic and the ambiance is so wonderful outside!!
It would be nice if the kitchen would be a bit more flexible on "adaptions" to the menu.
They seem to be a bit rigid on the menu and timing.
However, that said, Danny makes a great Cosmo and the staff is pleasant and the food is good.
Beautiful patio in the back. Although we ordered our food immediately upon arrival we waited 60 minutes to receive our orders. By the way the bread came 5 minutes before the rest of the food. The servers were very pleasant though.
one of the most beautiful patios i've experienced in chicago. staff performed with their usual friendly, attentive, informed character.
La Storia has great food and a perfect ambiance for a date night. The service was slow and the waiter forgot to enter our appetizer order, but this was compensated with a free small desert.
Lasagna was burnt ravioli was not what it said it was on the menu and risotto tasted like oatmeal. Bad food.
Thanks to IVo we had a lovely if long lunch on Monday. Some of their service people didn’t show up and the chef and IVo handled a large group! Thanks IVo!
Outdoor dining at its finest on a beautiful evening with the quality and presentation of the food to match.
Love this place!!!! Always a great experience. Courtyard dining here feels very special, lovely for an intimate dinner with close friends or a romantic dinner with your someone special.
The agnolotti and the tagliatelle were good. One of our group said the ravioli tasted bland. Nice outdoor setting but I could smell the cigar smoke from next door.
Food was great, service was very poor.
The service was great. We took every recommendation that the waiter gave and he nailed it. The pasta and fish was the best. I will visit again. Take a look and visit them.
Food was amazing. All the pasta was fresh and delicious.
Noise level was low so conversation was easy. Did not feel rushed by staff and everyone was very attentive. Fair wine list which leans toward Italian wines. Food was great and portions were just right.
Amazing food and outstanding service! Highly recommend.
This was our fourth visit to La Storia. We had been very happy previously sitting on both patios and indoors. We were seated most recently in the courtyard which was delightful last time. Unfortunately, the smell of cigar smoke from the neighboring cigar bar was very distracting and really soured the experience. The staff was not very sympathetic. Halfway through our meal, we moved inside. Our server seemed annoyed. Disappointing experience.
Amazing food, great service and a really cozy atmosphere
The food itself was really great and seemed authentic. My actual server was fun, nice, and treated us very well, however, the hostess was rude and displayed unnecessary attitude toward my party.
Waitress wasn’t great. Tables close together and nervous during COVID.
Great food and very nice staff
Our first time at La Storia was amazing! We’ve tried plenty of great Italian restaurants, but the food, service, and atmosphere of La Storia stood out. The back patio is adorable and quaint. The service was great and it was refreshing to have servers that felt that they had been there for a years and knew the place well. Highly recommend the aranchini and bolognese - so good! One of the better tiramisu cakes I’ve had as well. My fiancé enjoyed the ravioli, but I would personally skip the ravioli and gelato. 5/5 stars from me!
Server was not informed about menu items as I thought she should
Great service, delicious food and wonderful ambiance , I recommend this place
Lovely ambiance and delicious food.

We sat on the outside back patio and it was wonderful. Food was delicious. We tried the arancini for appetizer as well as the orecchiette, tagliolini, risotto and cauliflower steak -- all were incredible and we all tried each other's meals. Great place!
Very enjoyable until a loud group showed up and ruined the ambiance for everyone else.
Incredible venue and awesome food. Could not ask for a better night out. Friendly staff a d good wine list
Always a wonderful choice
The pasta was not as fresh as expected. The salad we got was not very flavorful and lacked greens. But the pizza was delicious! And the gelato is delightful!! The wine selection is great. Our waiter was very friendly and helpful. There was a mistake with our order and the manager rectified it immediately.
The ambiance was great as we had a seat during noon in the beautiful courtyard. The food was really good but our pizza, bagel, and burger bun all came out a little too burnt. Value was decent as the portions were just right and the service was great!
Very nice experience at La Storia this morning, food was really good especially the French toast,the ambience in the front of the patio is so cute ! The service was okay , just our waitress doesn’t care so much to our table
La Storia never disappoints. Everything is authentic, tasty, and well portioned. They have great covered outdoor dining options - still comfortable on a hot night. Will definitely be back!
Had great service, food, and a great time at La Storia. Surprised it wasn’t more busy than it was, considering it was such a nice night. Outdoor dining is really cool, right on the street, and really enjoy the ambience of the inside space as well with the nod to Chicago history. Will definitely be back again. Food was delicious, and not salty at all like some others had mentioned.
This a little Italian restaurant gem in the Gold Coast, inside with the gorgeous murals and the courtyard is really unique! Service was great and outstanding food!
Excellent as always. One of the best restaurants in Chicago. The outside courtyard is amazing, as is the food.
