    Went there last night for my birthday with my husband. This was the second time we went there (1st was his birthday when they first opened). There was an initial mishap with seating (they didn't give us a great table eventhough my reservation called out it is a birthday and had a request for a good table). However, they were cooperative in moving us to a much better table after my husband spoke to the host. After that, the experience was exceptional! Our waitress, Lavie/Lavy (spell?) Was amazing! She was so genuine in her warmth and friendliness as well as on top of her game. The whole wait staff is superb! The food was not only delicious, but it was also well coursed and extremely well timed. The cleanup in between courses was on point with plates and utensils replacements. They behave like a luxury fine dining establishment but without the stuffiness and high costs. Although Adalina is not a low cost dining option, it is a good value for quality of food and portions. The energy and crowd are great too. We just loved it and will be back! We had: Bread service Grilled octopus Truffled Ceasar Charred broccolini Gnocchi Veal chop parm (this was to die for) Hazelnut moose cake EVERYTHING was DELICIOUS!

    This is our third time here and we loved it again! First off, this restaurant delivers what we all want from a dining experience-HOSPITALITY. From the check in, to every staff encounter, even as we walked to the table, the bus person said "welcome, thanks for joining us tonight". This feels old school with elegant dining room, nice large and fun bar area, white table cloths and wait staff in bow ties, but it is totally contemporary in every other way. Great energetic good looking crowd, fantastic service in every which way. The food is very good, upscale Italian, not a weak spot in anything we ate. Long time Chicagoans, this has become our latest favorite restaurant.

    Excellent food and service. Good value for top drawer Italian cuisine. Only drawback is dining area is extremely loud when full. Owner should consult with acoustic engineer for some sound deadening recommendations. Otherwise, first rate.

    Francis was the best waitress we’ve experienced thus far. Extremely impressive, she even portioned our food for us. She guided us through the entire experience. 10 stars for Francine. The caprese salad with fried green tomatoes were awesome. The pasta flavors were with mint and chili was something I never would’ve thought would go together. The potatoes made with ricotta cheese were crazy delicious. The lamb chops and Salmon were cooked to our desired level of texture Medium well to well done but still tender.

    Went for our anniversary. Food was amazing, but it took thirty minutes to get seated. I made this reservation over a month in advance, and they gave away our table to someone else. It was also super loud—table of screaming people next to us.

    The ambiance of this restaurant was beautiful! Service was wonderful. We celebrated my moms birthday and we ordered the bread service which was delicious! For apps, we ordered half dozen oysters, the greens salad to share and both were outstanding. For our entrees, we ordered the scallops, the nanas gnocchi, and I initially ordered the Fiori but I sent the dish back as it was not to my liking. I didn't care for the texture and bland flavor. I then ordered the Campanelli which was much better! The scallops were amazing along with the gnocchi. For dessert, we went with the tiramisu and omg!! It was AMAZING!!

    The food was absolutely delicious! I cleaned the plate when I ordered the meatball. I snuck a few bites of my wife’s Truffled Caesar and would recommend if you are a fan of Caesar salads. I’m not a fan of salmon but the salmon Vesuvio is a must try. Whatever that gnocchi is made with can be it’s own dish, it’s that good. Request Tina as your server! She was always ready when we needed her and had great recommendations from drinks to appetizers to entrees. Will dine again!

    Party of 4, my daughter’s 18th birthday…she and her friends sat at table while mom sat in lounge to observe and pay the bill. The bartender and the bar service was EXCELLENT. However, my girls weren’t treated too well. The server left them with a rather bland taste… my daughter, who chose Adalina was very disappointed. Good Service should just be the constant standard. She being who she is wanted to leave a good tip in spite of… good people still do exist .

    I have lived in Italy twice and understand what they tried to replicate. Food was interesting but dishes were inconsistent. For example the Octopus dish was mostly potatoes with very little octopus. Tar tar was average. Shrimp pasta very good other pastas not exciting. It is a sharing style restaurant so I had some of 6 different dishes. Restaurant is open and is very loud and dark as well. Valet very convenient.

    So this is a beautiful, upscale restaurant! However, the food was not the best. Also, the service from our waitress was frustrating!! We’re not from Italy, so you should expect questions, right?! Well she was a little annoyed with us asking her to break the menu down. So she came off as SHORT!! It was my birthday and really didn’t appreciate her demeanor. Food: presentation was beautiful! Lamb chops weren’t cooked to appropriate temperature (medium) and there was no real flavor. Bar: Service was Awesome! Drinks delicious! Hostess: Pleasant and professional
