Cute little neighborhood place! Not a big menu. Appetizer we had the breaded goat cheese, big portion for 2 people could easily feed 4. It was not the best but good. Apparently very popular because they sold out as the night went on. I had scallops and they were huge! I did not care for the cauliflower and pine nut mixture they were laid on but the scallops were cooked just right. My husband had the special Mahi Mahi and he loved it. They make an okay dirty martini and his Manhattan was just okay too. Tables are very close together so no big jackets or handbags. We will definitely go back.

This restaurant is consistently very good. Cozy with a comfortable bar and staff is always friendly and willing to please.
It would be easier to go here more often if there were more budget friendly wine options.

My sister and husband were in town and a friend recommended Piazza Bella. It was amazing, fresh ingredients, and handmade pasta. Great for any pasta lover. Our server was awesome, friendly, and comped a free appetizer and limoncello. We will be back soon!

This wonderful gem is worth it every single time. I've been here with both large groups and small intimate dates and have never been disappointed. Even though my last meal was a late reservation they treated us so kindly and kept things fresh and light, the wine, the food, the staff, it keeps me coming back for years and years - 5 stars,cdont miss this place it's truly one of a kind. (Oh and there is valet if you are driving)

Took by 17 year old son out for dinner in the neighborhood. I knew we were taking a risk because I had not heard good reviews from others that live close by but we decided to take a chance. Big mistake! This is NOT the same restaurant that it used to be. It is incredibly loud and to speak to your table mates you have to yell. I know that doesn't bother some people but you should beware if this is not your preferred situation. We were seated immediately since we had a reservation but it took forever to be acknowledged by our server and to get water etc. The server was polite but not attentive. The bus people kept trying to take our appetizer (fried calamari = eatable but extra chewy) before we were finished. I defiantly felt like they were trying to get us out of there a quickly as possible. They never came back to see if we wanted another drink and my son had to ask to get his water glass refilled. The final straw was my entree. I ordered the Capellini because I LOVE Capellini with "fresh cherry tomatoes and basil" which is exactly how it was described on the menu. But what they brought out had a red sauce with chopped tomatoes and basil mixed in, plus a ton of sliced raw garlic. So much RAW garlic that when I fished it all out I ended up with a pile of it on my bread plate. ( Who eats raw garlic? Tasted it just to be sure ) My son had the potato gnocchi which he said was ok. 3 stars are for the nice patio, pretty setting and the wine was good. Would have had another glass if they had asked.

Once again this neighborhood staple came up trumps - the lamb meatball special starter was delicious, and easily enough for two. I recommend they add it to the regular menu as a main as I would get it again, probably as a new go-to if the specials don't get me first! We shared a steak and a dessert too, both of which were cooked to perfection.

This is a neighborhood staple for us, particularly midweek, where we can rely on a few delicious menu dishes like the agnolotti, bruschetta or filet steak. But best of all is they have specials to offer something different to consider every time, and the staff are super friendly and generous with their time. And now the weather is good, they have the patio out front which is great for people watching!

We enjoyed a delightful meal at Piazza Bella on a Wednesday evening in July. We sat at a lovely table in the window and had a responsive and delightful server. The potato gnocchi in bolognese sauce was delicious and we loved the shaved slices of Parmesan cheese on our salad. The atmosphere is charming! We will definitely return!

We recently returned to Chicago after four years and made it a point to have dinner with friends at Piazza Bella in our old neighborhood, Roscoe Village. This place is still a neighborhood gem! Excellent pasta and meat dishes, and the best, most authentic, risotto you will ever taste. They even made us their four cheese risotto even though it wasn't on the menu that night! Terrific!

This is a neighborhood favorite; so if you hope to have dinner there, be sure to make a reservation. If, however, you plan to have lunch and the weather is not yet warm enough for the patio, be sure to arrive in time to put in your order before the kitchen closes for dinner prep at 3pm. We arrived at 2pm on a Saturday, and there were very few people there, so it was quiet and the service was wonderful. We have also been there for dinner-- with a reservation-- and atmosphere and service was great then, too.
