The food and patio were GREAT but the service was honestly pretty bad. Our server visibly rolled his eyes multiple times, checked his watch when we asked for dessert menus, and the timing was really slow.

Great patio. The service was top notch. Everyone was attentive from the host (owner?) who was by a few times to check on us to the wait staff. The menu had several items that were appealing including many for my gluten free husband. The cocktails & wine were very nice. We even ordered dessert which we rarely do. The panna cotta was delicious. We will definitely be back.

We ordered the house pasta, a margherita pizza, potatoes on the side followed by Tiramisu. While the pizza was average, everything else was exceptional. Would definitely recommend it to friends and family. The best part was the outdoor seating area and the super helpful serving staff.

One of the best dining spaces in Chicago, inside and out--you cannot believe you are yards from N. Halsted St.! Add in attentive service, excellent innovative Italian food, and good Italian wine--what's not to like?

We chose Piccolo Sogno for its beautiful outdoor garden dining venue, its convenient location and for our pleasure in our past dining experiences there. We were delighted with every aspect of our experience this time. Not only was the food delicious and the wine selection interesting, but further, our service was terrific and the welcome from all staff warm and sincere. We will certainly return.

The wait staff were courteous, helpful and made our experience memorable. The patio was wonderful although it was crowded and at times noisy. When we arrived, the owner made us feel at home. The food was as ordered and among the best we have tasted. We had our anniversary there, a special dessert was presented. We will return again.

The patio in the summer is always one of my favorite places for a lazy lunch, good wine and great food. I’m pretty much addicted to the branzino but always willing to branch out (ate some of my friends halibut, also amazing). Great place for a day drinking date plus food

I absolutely LOVED this place! This was our first time here, and we found it by accident and so glad we did! Food was great ( we had pizza) service was on point! Atmosphere and environment so cute- we were sitting outside! I cannot wait to go back- my husband and I had a perfect Sunday date night! Adding this to one of our faves for our date nights, and also for other celebrations as well!

Piccolo Sogno is simply the best outdoor dining experience in Chicago. The lush garden makes you feel like you’re in Italy. The branzino is their signature dish and is a must. The Caprese salad with sun-dried tomatoes is outstanding. The mezzaluna pasta with truffles is to die for. The wine list is superb. And everything is reasonably priced making this one of the best values in addition to being one of the best restaurants in the city.

Courtyard dining is so lovely…..relaxing, transporting, and authentic. Pasta dishes are so incredible; I cannot wait to discover the next one; I have had three and cannot choose which is better! Our waiter was patient as we made our decisions and attentive throughout the meal. A truly wonderful outing.

The service is excellent. Staff is very attentive and wants to give you a great experience. And the food is phenomenal, best italian restaurant I've been to by far. And the outside seating area is gorgeous. You will not be disappointed.
Prices are what youd expect at a quality italian restaurant in the city.

I indicated on OpenTable that it was our 20th wedding anniversary. reservation at 5 on a tues. Place was empty. They started to seat us in the middle among all the tables and I had to ask for a nicer table near the garden. We waited 15 minutes for someone to come to our table and they only came after I flagged a waiter down. I told them we had concert reservations at 6:30 and needed to place our order. Our waiter didn't have any recommendations on wine which is advertised that this restaurant is known for. By the time food arrived we had to rush and we were late for the concert. No mention of our anniversary which is an important thing to look for when booked on an app.

We have been regulars at Piccolo Sogno for many years and always enjoyed the experience. We realize that maybe our expectations are too high following all of the challenges of this past year but things are not at the standard we have had in the past. The wait staff was thin and things were not in a timely manner. We ordered several items for the table asking that they not come out together - but they did. We had trouble getting the attention of our server to get wine for the entree. Our usual, over-the-top reaction to the meal was not there this time and overall the meal was not at the high level of flavor and inventiveness that we have known in past years. We have attended wine dinners as well as, been many times to dinner and lunch, so we feel we may have hit on a rough spot. We won't give up on Piccolo Sogno but hope that this will get turned around and be the "go to" place for us to take guests when we have them in town.

The food was delicious, the wait staff had impeccable attention to detail and the ambiance was beautiful. Only complaint was that our waiter seemed cold and short. He was never rude but he also was not pleasant to interact with either.

Outside dining is wonderful...not sure I would go there if you can’t dine outside. Food excellent with excellent service and, for a top notch restaurant in Chicago, the prices were fairly reasonable. You can spend a lot more for not as good food and far less atmosphere.
