Slow Monday. Great service. Food was good. Chef made a special rigatoni arrabiatta for me. Sausage app was yum yum.
Noise at 6:30 and beyond was crushing. Ruined the delicious dinner
Great food, great service, great ambiance! Will definitely be back!
Servers were friendly and helpful when explaining the menu as well as responsive of all request. Food was absolutely phenomenal
Fantastic experience tonight. Service was very attentive without being overbearing. Food was AMAZING! The white truffle risotto is probably the best thing I have eaten all year. It was our first time here and we will be back for sure
Great, spot-on service. Christian has always given great advice on wine selection, both by the glass and bottle. Menu varied - numerous selections none of which would go wrong. Burrata with poached pears special appetizer was fantastic. Always loved the Whitefish with sautéed garlic spinach; ranks as the best in the city.
Overall we had a great experience. They start the dinner off with a complimentary prosecco toast for the table which was a welcomed surprise. We went 2 days after Christmas so the holiday decor was beautiful and ambiance was cozy. The noise level was really loud, however, even just from conversation (not loud music), which wasn’t great for our party. Some fabric around the establishment (on walls, columns, etc.) could help a little but it’s unclear how much they could do about it. Risotto crab cakes were somewhat dry and disappointing, but the burrata all of which were delicious. Would go back again but would request a table by the front windows to avoid the noise of being surrounded by other parties.
As always, we had a fabulous meal this evening. The wait staff is wonderful, the food is scrumptious, and the ambiance is great. For those that haven’t done it, order a steak at this restaurant. As good as the best steak house in town, and in many cases, better.
This is not the place for a pleasant dining experience! The music in the bar was extremely loud, techno music which prevented me from hearing my dining partner without yelling. Although the plates were cleared promptly and the water refilled, the waiter was rarely there and not very friendly. For example, I ordered a glass of wine that I did not care for and did not drink it. The waiter never noticed and never asked if there was a problem. I had to tell him at the end of the meal and he was dismissive. The food was good, but with all the other great places to eat in Chicago, I would not go back.
Celebrating some career success... greeted with a glass of Prosecco - what else?!?! - which was such a nice way to begin the evening.
We shared a half bottle of Chianti and our server was very helpful with his wine recommendation.
The meatball salad - A Must !!
There were so many entrees and ours were delicious. Definitely need to return to try some of the others.
Extra attentive service from the valet parking attendant.
It was my mom’s birthday, and the the server didn’t put down the pasta I ordered for my mom even though I clearly remember when I pointed that dish to he menu, he repeated the name and wrote it down. Honestly all my stars are going to the food and the chef. The service was horrible, I don’t know why he insisted that I didn’t order the dish. I don’t think I’m ever gonna go back to this place. Horrible experience
Excellent food. Music didn’t fit with the fine dining experience and it was too loud. Will definitely recommend this restaurant for impeccable food
Exceptional service. Wonderful food-well prepared and presented. White truffle risotto is especially tasty!
Very noisy with mediocre service. Food was on par with other Italian places prices similarly.
Food and service were both outstanding!
We had a terrific meal and a terrific waiter!! Love this place!
Amazing meal and great service. It is a perfect date night location.
We try to eat here when we are in Chicago. The meal this time was disappointing. My soup was amazing but the rest was not.
Service not great
It was great! But towards the end of dinner. We were there on business. The music got very loud. We had to talk over it.
Love Prosecco. Great service and the food is amazing. Presentation and a hot plate is very important.
The noise level was a bit loud. Hard to converse. But that won't change my mind in returning. :)
It was my birthday and they brought out an adorable dessert with writing on it. Felt so special.
When we first arrived it was empty besides 2 people at the bar. I though I had made a huge error in judgement in picking this place. Wow was I wrong. It was fantastic, the appetizers, main entree's and probably the best homemade ricotta cheesecake I have ever had in my life. Within an hour of being there the place filled up quite nicely but still maintained its ambiance and mood. If you ever are in Chicago I highly recommend you go here.
The food was delicious. The staff was super friendly and welcoming from when we walked in to when we walked out. Our server was very helpful in answering questions about the menu. We picked this place as it was on a list of romantic restaurants in Chicago, so we were expecting something quieter, but it was pretty energetic. Not that that's a bad thing, but different from what we were expecting. Overall, loved it and would definitely go again!
Wonderful meal and exceptional service!
Every food item was delicious! We ordered a few items to share for the table and each was better than the next. They were especially careful of my food allergies which I appreciated. The room is beautiful and clean. Service was amazing! Would go back again.
We had a great evening with excellent service and nice glas of prosecco!
Everything was great! Food, service and the wine selection. I also had the chance to meet the owner (Marcos) who is a great guy and does deserve all success. I went there with a friend to celebrate the Chicago Marathon achievement. Actually I went on Saturday night with the reservation for 10.12 and ended going there on the 10.13 night again! All great!
Way to expensive, good food but not worth the money.
Good food, friendly service, nice atmosphere. Right for multiple occasions.
Food was outstanding. Can’t think of anything that I ordered that I didn’t like. Only thing that was disappointing was how long we had to wait for appetizers and main courses. The wait was worth it though.
Chef owned. Great experience!!
Good food. Nice spot. Nice menu.
We had a wonderful time and the food was incredible! We ordered off of the happy hour menu which is every day from 5-7pm and had incredible options. Our meal was delicious and was extremely affordable.
Excellent night, great food, great service! Exceeded my expectations!
My veal was overcooked seemed like it was cooked and then recooked.
Great food and service as always!
Always superb! Highly recommend.
We felt super rushed to get out of there. Literally every two seconds someone came to refill our water, take plates and stare at us until we left
Delicious dinner and wonderful service!
