They were very attentive to our special requests for vegetarian options. Service was top notch. We ordered a truffle dish that was expensive, but it was amazing.
Food was delicious - both great taste and great presentation. Our waiter was very knowledgeable on the menu options and made some good recommendations (without being too pushy). We made reservation on short notice - it was close to our hotel. My only comment was that the open table price target of ‘$’ was a bit off base - this is a pricey restaurant and should be rated at least ‘$$’. All-in-all a great dining experience but definitely on the upper end of the price scale for a good Italian restaurant. Would certainly go again.
Outstanding meal! The chef is genius. Best Italian in Chicago.
Pelago was a quiet, romantic setting. The fireplace was burning and only a few other tables were seated in the restaurant. The food was freshly made in house which took a bit longer to make but the wait was definitely worth it. Definitely the place to go for an anniversary or other special occasion.
Excellent pasta. We asked for a wine recommendation, and the waiter suggested an off the menu Chef reserve wine. Turns out this special wine that they suggested at $97 is sold a Binney’s for $13. We also made it clear from the beginning that we had 8:00 theater tickets. We asked for coffee and our check at 7:30. After multiple requests we paid the bill and ran out of the place at 7:55.
A lovely quiet dinner in beautiful surroundings. We had a tasting of four pastas and then Dover sole and lamb chops. The only negative is the $50 corkage to bring a bottle of wine.
Pelago is lovely, the food is delicious, and the service is highly attentive, if perhaps too formal. Be prepared: this is an expensive restaurant and I thought overpriced.
Exceptionally high level gourmet service and dishes. Fantastic experience for myself and my 5 guests.
Amazing authentic 5 star Italian restaurant!! It is pricey? Yes. Is it worth it? Yes. My wife and I went during a special weekend to Chicago and thoroughly enjoyed it. Wait staff was incredibly attentive. Loved it that our waiter spoke Italian - just added to the experience. Bravo!!
Simply one of our finest dining experiences ever. Pelago is Michelin star caliber by any standard. Chef Mauro is a true talent and very kind. The staff is professional and the overall experience is nothing short of world class dining. This is now a regular Chicago stop. Amazing!!
