What Insiders Are Saying
Piccolo Sogno is a classic Italian restaurant complete with candlelight, white table clothes, and pure romance.
Excellent outdoor dining
I normally have dinner here but went for lunch today and it was fabulous......duck spinach salad will bring me back as it was very special.
Piccolo Sogno is always excellent. We go there for our anniversary every year and often for birthdays and other special occasions. The food is always excellent and the service is great!!
Best patio in the city!
Positively magical. Entering the garden seating from the restaurant is just amazing. Never guessed how wonderful this restaurant would be. Food was excellent too but, on this particular evening, it was the ambiance that made this such a great experience.
The best outdoor dining experience in Chicago. The menu and wine list holds up to the perfect setting for a relaxed and vibrant dining experience. Service is impeccable and friendly; patrons festive and happy to be there. A perfect venue for Chicago visitors, as well as locals who just want to chill with a fine meal. Seafood is outstanding, every time.
Food, ambiance, service - all excellent. Will definitely be dining here again! Thank you!
Out of town visitors
Great food and nice patio. Reasonably priced wine that was good quality
The patio offered a nice ambience that is perfect for a date.
Not only was everything delicious, from appetizer to coffee, but service was outstanding.
Delicious meal in a fantastic garden setting. From the outside it looks like any other restaurant, but in their outdoor dining area, it is a magical place with full size trees and twinkling lights. I'd go there again just to escape the city!
Everything about my experience was amazing. Great service, drinks, spacing between courses, and the FOOD!! Mouth watering. The courtyard was romantic as well. I can't stop telling everyone about it. I will absolutely be back.
Amazing courtyard and food and service!!!
Outstanding out door seating with fabulous food, great wine list and attentive service. Wonderful experience
Love the beautiful evening on the patio. The food & service were perfect. Friendly and no pressure
It was wonderful as always!!
We come for our anniversary every year and sit in the beautiful garden. Never disappoints!
Wonderful dinner, great food, amazing service
Best Italian food in the city. So fresh and tasty. Service was impeccable!
very good restaurant. Great place to meet friend especially on the outdoor patio. Food is excellent and ambiance even better. Highly recommended.
Always a great place for either lunch or dinner. If available do the patio.
Piccolo Sogno probably has the most beautiful outdoor dining experience in the City. It is absolutely sublime. Straight out of a Renoir painting. The food is wonderful, the service excellent and friendly, and the wine list is terrific.
Always a great experience here..food is very consistant, staff are always very friendly...drinks are outstanding...great patio area...
One of the best out door patios in the city! It has a garden setting unlike any other.
I informed them that this was our 5th wedding anniversary and that it was the spot of our first date over 10 years ago.. we were seated in a crummy spot and had lackluster service and nothing more
We booked our reservation months in advance to be sure we got in here for my 40th birthday. It was such a wonderful dining experience. We grabbed drinks at the bar first. My French martini was very good! We sat outside on the beautiful patio. Our waiter was so accommodating and all service staff was quick to refill water and clear dishes. We had a black truffle pizza as an appetizer...delicious! My husband was disappointed to see the Bolognese was not on the menu that evening. But, he asked our waiter about it and without hesitation our waiter said they could make it! I went with the Branzino. So good!!! I’m not a fan of fennel so he let me substitute roasted cauliflower. We ended with a hazelnut cake which was warm and served with hazelnut gelato. Yum! What a special evening! We’ll definitely return!
Great food and very romantic. Perfect for any type of event.
I thought the garden was to loud and it is not as pretty as I was told it was.
The bread was not very good for my taste.
The ravioli that my girlfriend ordered was very good my salmon was not to my taste.
The waiters were very hard working and nice.
The garden is beautiful in summer. The food is devine. I would highly recommend it.
What a fabulous experience from start to finish! The weather was perfect to eat I on the patio. The wine, salads and pasta dishes were all fabulous. Ended dinner with a little limoncello before hitting the town. I highly recommend the ravioli.
The food and service are consistently excellent and how can you beat that outdoor garden on a glorious summer evening
Wonderful lunch in the best outdoor space in Chicago. Food delicious, service superb.
Absolutely the best Italian food I had in a while. When I am back in Chicago, it will be my first stop.
Unfortunately it is a very popular restaurant and reservations are hard to get.
Great place , fantastic fresh food. Service was wonderful. An all around great experience
I usually don't give bad reviews but the food here was awful! I have been to several Italian restaurants and this one was of the worst ones. It was very expensive and the food was not even edible. It is really sad becuase it is a beautiful place.
Really great meal. Great service.
Best dining experience I’ve had in a long time! The garden is one of the best in Chicago. Will definitely be back!
