We had a wonderful meal all around, only tempered by a very loud and boisterous table behind us.

Food was great, as was service. There was a very loud party next to us, to their credit they moved us to a better location to finish our dinner. Will go again. Loved the special and homemade pasta

Fritto Misto was delicious - excellent light breading. Pasta was good, albeit quite dense. Bread plate on table was covered in oil when we were seated and. Is boy didn’t seem to care when we pointed that out. Server was cold and a bit snobbish from the get-go. Not attentive, not helpful. Guess I might try it again? Not sure.

I'd forgotten about this little gem until a friend suggested we go there. The food was excellent...true Italian. Portion sizes were perfect. The staff was friendly and service was outstanding.

Never disappoints! Long leisurely lunch with a client friend, the owner always makes a point of checking in on various tables and makes you feel so sincerely welcome. If you've never tried this place, try a late lunch for a more relaxing time or late happy hour for a bit more buzz. Casual to dressy you will always be treated as the only customer there. They really do care about your total experience!

Food was great. I didn’t realize I ordered a $200 bottle of wine. I believe the server misheard me. The wine was amazing. But I’m surprised for such an expensive bottle. They didn’t double check with what’s on the menu.

Birthday! Just a lovely evening at Piccolo Sogno last Sunday night! I did think the prices for the pasta dishes were high and should be lowered to the teens.

Always on point, almost to a fault. To a fault because I never try something different. There is no other restaurant that does branzino as well as PS! So I know when I am there I am eating the best branzino in the Chi! In addition the service is aways exceptional too. I say I like xyz" about a wine and in 1 taste they nail it!

We were at Piccolo Sogno for an early New Year’s Eve dinner. Certainly not a place to go if you are looking for a quiet dinning experience. This past summer we ate here and sat outside. It was busy but not annoying like the other evening. The food was excellent and will return but during the warmer months.

We went to Piccolo after the Symphony, and we're glad we did. A friend at work recommended Piccolo and when I started folks I was going there, they confirmed it was a great place. So my expectations were high when I got there, and they did not disappoint! We were seated promptly and greeted promptly. We ordered a pizza for an appetizer which was excellent and I got the pasta special, which was superb. Our party of 6 all ordered something different and everyone enjoyed the meal. Service was impeccable. Their was no shortage of wait staff and as soon as we even looed like we needed something, somebody approached us as delivered. I can't say enough! I recommend you go an experience it your self. Simply put, the food and service was excellent. The two main things I look for when dining out.

From the booking process, to being seated, to the service and the food, everything was spectacular.

First off I want to give a huge thank you to the restaurant. I had informed them that we were on a time crunch, and at every point of the meal, they made sure that was was kept in mind so we had an amazing experience even with a limited time frame. The staff was attentive, knowledgeable, respectful and overall a delight to chat with.

For 4 people the meal cost around $55 a person including tip but value you got for that price was perfect. 3/4 diners had a fabulous Sicilian Red Wine, we shared 2 appetizers both were absolutely delectable (1.Polpo, 2. Caprese salad w/ unctuous 15 year old balsamic vinegar), and had 3 entrees (1. Veal Milanese, 2. Anatra Arrosto, 3. Gnocchi), and shared an Italian Mille cake desert with espressos. Describing the flavor of each dish would be too long for this review, but to generalize all together, my fiance has now found her new favorite Italian place here in Chicago.

Thank you for an amazing experience and we will surely be returning hopefully very soon.

Has a good amount of gluten free options and the dinner was delicious. I had the panna cotta for dessert and it was lovely! Service was good as well. The restaurant was decorated very festive for the holiday but not over the top which was nice - very warm and inviting.

Caprese salad was the beat part of the meal. If you order the amatriciana gluten free, it comes with penne instead of spaghetti which is a substitution I feel should’ve been explained upfront. Way too saucy for traditional amatriciana. My salmon was severely overcooked and dry and the eggplant under it was bland. Our server, Miguel, seemed annoyed when we asked clarifying questions and provided mediocre service. Ambiance was cute for a date night. Would not return.

A reliable neighborhood favorite. It's especially nice during the summer when the outdoor patio is open, but pleasant during the winter as well. We enjoyed our salads and pasta, plus a good selection of wines by the glass. Food was good rather than great, but a decent value and served by friendly staff in a warm environment.
