Far from my first time there and far from my last. Great food, wonderful expansive Italian wine list, joyous ambiance and attentive staff. Have not had a bad dish on the menu. Straw & Hay always delightful, Strega Nona Rigatoni special was indeed that, a taut Calamari with some shrimps thrown in for fun was a delightful starter. Better under the stars in the summer al fresco outside, and definitely more of a 'treat' price tag than an everyday, but would love to eat there more often.

Continues to be our go to outdoor restaurant in Chicago. Food is incredible , and the atmosphere in their outdoor area transports you to an Italian courtyard. Our last visit was inside because of the weather, and it was wonderful as well.

Dining at Piccolo Sogno is always a delight; the food, service and ambiance are unequaled in the Chicagoland area. Their garden also provides a respite from the noise and hustle bustle of the urban environment because it’s such a lovely oasis. Highly recommend.

We loved the garden patio but we were there early on Sunday evening and I felt the service was rushed. Our dinners came out and we still had appetizers on the table.

Food was outstanding! Service was good but the servers hovered over the table entirely too much. From start to finish we arrived, parked, ate dinner and left the restaurant all in 65 minutes. The waiters picked up our plates the minute we were finished our last bite and our main course came out when we were just finishing our salad. Slow down guys...we know your policy is 90 minutes but I don't like to feel rushed. I will be back though...the food was awesome. Kudos to the parking attendant - super nice.

I have been coming to Piccolo since it opened. However, this was BY FAR the best meal I have had since it first opened. I was so excited, as it was my first restaurant since Covid and it definitely did not disappoint. From the second we entered to the time we left, a smile never left my face. Squash blossoms, Prosecco, Pesto Risotto, and the most deliciously (and perfectly) cooked duck I have ever eaten. Hazelnut lava cake, Miglie Foglie, the outside patio at night, and a beautiful Pinot Noir....all of it, created a perfect night. Thank you for making my first restaurant in over a year, a reminder of not only how phenomenal Piccolo Sogno is, but also how amazingly special restaurants are in general. Grazie Mille.
