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.

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!

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.
