With decades in the family restaurant business, Dario Vullo has brought his family's legacy to the United States to share the great traditions of food in Italy to Chicago with the help of his fiancé and co-owner, Amy Yetasook. Amy is a newly proclaimed Chicagoan and med student studying to become a surgeon.

Executive Chef/brother Alessio Vullo and restaurant namesake Nando (a dignified Italian dachshund) complete the restaurant family. Chef Alessio holds the Vullo family secrets, instructing the team every morning in making fresh pasta, breads, and desserts to the highest Italian standards.

We hope you will stop in and experience our cozy Italian world.

Love, Dario and Amy (owners)

Their arancini appetizer was DELICIOUS! Pasta was also good, but there was nothing special about it & it took a very very long time to be brought out. Drinks were made perfectly! Manager was great and very attentive. Would definitely return.

Our second time to dine at Nando Milano. We've enjoyed it both times and will now start remembering to go there more frequently. The host greets you so warmly and with such cheer and pleasure. Great way to start your dining experience. The Italian fare is delicious, and they have a nice wine list too.

Fantastic meal and service in a casual and comfortable atmosphere. Not at all stuffy. Super delcious food included octopus starter and special starter featuring brussel sprouts and fresh mozzarella. Rigatoni and Lobster ravioli mains were also very delicious. Can't wait to go back for the weeknight special!

Everything we ate was phenomenal. The pesto-filled arancini was to die for. My waygu beef was exceptional, as was my husband's gnocchi. Service was very, very attentive. Manager couldn't have been nicer and gave the two of us a nice window table. The place is cramped, so we were relieved not to sit at one of the tiny tables for two smashed in the center of the room. Cannot say enough great things about this place. (Only two knocks: $5 for a single Diet Coke? You gotta re-think that one. Also, wish there were more beer options than the Itailan-only offerings.) We will definitely be coming back and recommending this place.

Nando never disappoints! Whether choosing from the regular menu or the daily specials, the food is delicious, homemade and flavorful. The staff are welcoming and friendly and will guide you to the perfect meal. I will always come back, and am sorry I didn’t have time for one of their wonderful desserts on my last visit. Next time!

What a great restaurant! I found this last year on Open Table when we visited our son in Chicago for parents weekend and we couldn’t wait to go again when we visited last weekend! Luca is amazing and so attentive, and our server was lovely (sorry forgot her name).

The rice ball volcano appetizer and the classic tomato and mozzarella with arugula (Nando Caprese) were delicious! My veal dinner, my son’s wild boar pasta bolognese and my husband’s saltimbocca maiale were outstanding!

Can’t wait to visit again when we’re back in Chicago! Great neighborhood restaurant - worth traveling to even though we stayed downtown.

Went for a friend's birthday dinner on Sunday. The hostess and staff were very friendly and accommodating. My friend ordered the cod and polenta which was amazing. I had the linguine portofino which was exceptional. They had a great wine list. And we topped off the meal with a limoncello-yum! Hope to go back soon.
