    Way too loud in there. They seat everyone too close together as well. Felt like I was in a cafeteria. They also made me wait 30 minutes after my reservation to be seated. Food was amazing!!! Not worth a second trip though.

    All the food was wonderful. However, sitting outside when our main courses arrived the 2 fish orders were cold as well as the 2 pastas being lukewarm. We sat down at 6:30 pm and did not receive our main courses to 8:30 pm. - too long waiting for cold food. The waiter was great : the atmosphere a 10: the vive super!The carrot cake and fruit ice cream dessert were super!

    Everything we ate was delicious and our service was fabulous. Only complaint is that the portions are small especially for the price. I would definitely come back! Don’t miss the speakeasy —it is a really cool space.

    Food was just fantastic. Only complaint was I ordered a bourbon that was not available but on the list. Took a while for them to come and let me know. Then the next one I ordered was not on the list, took a while to let me know. 3rd time was a charm, but by then the appetizer had already come and gone. And the entire time my wife's drink was just sitting there at the bar. That is more of the complaint. Amazing food, will definitely eat here again and sing its praises.

    Great food, but make sure to go in with a fat wallet and plenty of patience. I specifically made a reservation here based off their menu and wanting an upscale fine dining experience during a group trip with friends. While the space was beautiful and the food was delicious, the service and overall coordination were severely lacking. Our server struggled to know how to manage a table or multitask, seemingly more concerned with using long-winded vocabulary than knowing how to actually provide service. The kitchen was also off on their timing, unless this was a course firing error by the server. One friend's meal showed up 20 minutes after everyone else's, which I had to call the server's attention to when we had been sitting waiting for 10 minutes. A busser took my friends plate away from him mid bite, without asking if he was done and my friend had to ask for it back. Another friend got the same dish as mine and hers came with bread while mine did not. And then upon asking to split checks, the majority of them were wrong (thankfully we are a close group and are generous with each other). I spoke with a manager who apologized, took my email, and said he would follow up to which I have heard nothing almost a week later. I worked fine dining service for 10 years, in very similar upscale environments, and regardless of the price tag on this meal, this was unacceptable. In fact, we were in Chicago for nine days and this was the worst service we received during the entirety of the trip.

    Excellent brunch. Everything on the menu looked so good that we over-ordered! The sour dough croissant was absolutely delicious and a welcome treat for my wife who has sensibilities to gluten. We were surprised by the size sufficient for four people to share. Everything was delicious and the service was extremely attentive. We will be returning on our next visit to Chicago!

    Our chicken was raw, but other than that our pasta had good flavor. I wish the food came in bigger portions. 6 small pieces or ravioli was not worth $29. Our server was great though, very professional, and observant.

    The charred octapus was dry and although the menu suggests that goat cheese was the only dairy product used, we sensed that something else was in there. And when we pressed the server, she said there was also some cream in it. (We can't eat cow's milk, .) Moreover, the mafaldine pasta was salty but lacking in depth of flavor. And it seemed that the artichokes in that dish were canned, although we asked the server and she insisted they were fresh. The setting for outdoor dining is quite nice, on the shady side of the street. But the food was sadly underwhelming and we left much of it on our plates, although we were quite hungry.

    Excellent and attentive service. My guest had a dietary restriction around alcohol that she didn't advise the staff on because she thought she hadn't ordered any, but they knew the sauce in her dish had Limoncello and checked in with her proactively to confirm she was OK with that. She wasn't and they worked with the kitchen to adjust the dish to her needs. Need to get the Michelin reviewers in here! Food and drinks were excellent, will absolutely be back

    Made an 8:30 reservation for my husbands bday after a recommendation. We weren’t seated until an hour after our reservation, which is honestly unheard of. Gave us our apps for free as a result. Manager at the front was chatting the entire time with other guests (seemed like friends), Def gave the vibe that they were so busy it didn’t really matter if we left or stayed. Our server was the one to try and make up for the wait. Dessert was the best part. Will give it one more try when summer is over. Otherwise, there are way too many great Italian restaurants (Monteverde, Gibsons italia, alla vita, topo gigio) in the city to make this a regular spot.
