It was ok. The cheese board we order for 4 was lacking cheese it had only 2 cheeses enough to feed a mouse and 3 meats with only 2-3 tiny slices of meat. The rest was mustard and apple butter and a couple of other sauces. It just was not enough for 4 people like we were informed.

Service needs work it to two minutes to get a glass of wine and 30 min for a Captain and coke. Both times we ordered it took 30 min. Server took way to long to take order, check on us after we received our food. I know times are tough for a lot of restaurants so I will be going back!

Food was very good for price. Ambiance was nice and cozy. Service was great! Everyone was very nice. One small thing...the wine list. I get the mark up on the wine, but you need to add more less expensive wine by the bottle.

Good was good. I asked our waiter for a fruity mock cocktail and he brought a tasty raspberry drink. When I got the bill it was$12.00. Really? $12.00 for a non-alcoholic drink is a bit much.

The restaurant was tucked away though in a nice area. The decor was very nice, good amount of spacing between tables and guest. The service was exceptional, the hostess very friendly. The hostess, waiter and chef ensured accommodation of my food allergy. Chef made an phenomenal substitution to the planned meal for my allergy. The entree was outstanding, one of the best meals I've had. It was a 5 course meal, though full by third course, made room for 4 & 5 because everything was excellent.

The service was a little slow but they told us ahead of time to expect this because they were short of staff and we appreciated the notification. The food and flavors added were excellent. What I like is that most items on the menu are dishes I would not attempt or take the time to make at home. The manager not only helped with service but stopped at all the tables to ensure people were happy with the meals and she apologized for the the slow service.

What a pleasant surprise, food was excellent from appetizers to dessert . While the grilled octopus sounded daring to a few at the table, everyone agreed it was excellent. My mother even said the tart dessert was the best she has ever had, that is very high praise!

Everything was excellent. We split a salad and it came on separate plates, each larger than a normal dinner salad. We ordered a glass of wine and the manager steered us away because it would be too sweet. We appreciated the attention and suggestion.
Had the pork belly and my wife the short rib ravioli. Both were perfectly prepared. The accompanying vegetables were perfectly done.

Seriously. Just walking in the door and the smell of wood burning is so amazing ! It’s a happy scent. Then there’s the food. The bread! The dipping deliciousness. It’s so good. I ordered the salad with crispy fennel in a truffle dressing. My husband and the steak both were amazing. Our friends shared the bolognese and it’s seriously the best ever. We all shared because we had a wood fired prosciutto gig pizza and amazing cheese and meat board to start. All made in house. Cheeses we’ve never had before that were so good. Dried grapes. Giardinere grapes. And pickled asparagus

People you need to go. It’s a win win and that good

This was my first time to Che Figata. My son just received a promotion at work and I wanted to take him somewhere nice!! We were both blown away with the entire staff, food and ambiance!!
We ordered grilled octopus and apple salad for appetizers The octopus was perfectly seasoned and the presentation was awesome with a celery root purée and baby potatoes on a wooden slate. Wowsie!! I also loved the apple salad. I’m totally making it for my Thanksgiving meal this year!! It was so fresh and the thinly sliced tart apples was the perfect crunchy touch!!

For entree, I had the lasagna and my son had the spinach pasta. Both homemade pastas melted in our mouths!! It takes so much time to make homemade pasta and I so much appreciated the kitchen doing all the heavy lifting. Lol!!

Angel was our server and he was just adorable!! He was professional, friendly and gave us great menu suggestions!!
For dessert Angel treated us to a tiramisu for my son’s promotion! How sweet!! OMG! Best tiramisu I’ve had and I I’m a baker so I know good desserts!!

Also, the head chef stopped by and chatted with us. The manager also stopped by to say hi. All the personal touch made our evening EXTRA special!! We left like VIP’s!!

Thank you to the entire staff at Che Figata for helping this suburban mom give her “New Yorker” son a TOTAL 5 star downtown experience in our little town of Naperville. We had the best time and we will definitely be back soon!!

We felt like celebrities here for our first time checking out CHE FiGATA. Staff was very friendly, knowledgeable, and attentive. Our server Angel was amazing, and both the manager and the chef stopped over just to see how everything was and tell us more about the food (which rarely happens dining out, and we loved it). The food was perfectly cooked and so unique. We are always looking for spots that are out of this world and yet feel like home. WE WILL BE BACK AND RECOMMENDING.

The wait staff was new so not very knowledgeable (can't be helped), little to no options for vegans/vegetarians. It's 2021- a salad is not dinner. With the espresso machine out of order too, it was an expensive and lacking meal.

Che Figata has excellent food but for the prices they charge, “stingy” is what I would describe it as. There used to be excellent bread served to each table. Seems to be gone entirely, haven’t seen it on last 6 trips for ours or any table. We had to ask for refills although our glasses were obviously empty for awhile. Portions are small. No issue with the portions being small, but I’m not sure the prices are justified . Super disappointed there is no bread served to every table in an Italian restaurant!

Dinner here is always good. Love the food. they now make you ask for bread - don't miss it cause the dipping sauce is great. Bread itself is nothing special. The wine prices used to be terrible but now they have a few more moderate reds by the glass.

I was excited to go to the restaurant. It was my second visit within two weeks. However, the cold greeting by the blonde hostess made me lose that excitement. I had a reservation, and I asked to be seated at one of the many empty booths. She summarily dismissed my request and replied that seating is prearranged. No apologies, no customer service. I thought how difficult could it be to switch my table and let a guest yet to arrive have my table. Maybe the hostess was having a bad night or maybe it was something more I dare not say.
My evening turned back around when the waiter, Juan, noticed my unhappiness. He was so professional and even offered to get the manager to rectify the issue followed by a complimentary glass of wine. That’s outstanding customer service. Later the manager did come to the table and she was just as apologetic, sincere and professional. She advised she would address the service with the hostess and provided dessert on the house. I will return because of the server and the manager and I hope the level of customer service at the host stand matches the level at the table.

We went for my birthday. Overall, the food was delicious. The lighting was very dim, which made it difficult to read the menu. We were hoping that since we were there for a special occasion (and it was stated on the reservation) that we could’ve had a booth but that wasn’t offered to us. Again, overall, the food was delish. The service was great. We would’ve just liked to have had the option of a booth and a bit brighter lighting so we could read the menu a little better.

Great food and service. Music was a bit loud when we first got there, but as soon as our server took our drink order, the music was softer without us having to ask. Love the locally sourced food and handmade pastas. Would love to have a few more vegetarian options that are a bit lighter. Otherwise fabulous!

I’ve been to Che Figata many times before, but not under the new ownership and chef. I was disappointed with my experience this time. Our young waitress kept on saying that she was Italian but yet when we asked questions was unsure of things. I finally told her I was 100% Italian that ended that. I really wanted the grilled octopus appetizer and she told me that she wouldn’t recommend it because it was rubbery. I’m glad I didn’t listen to her because it was the best thing I ate that evening. I thought the octopus was grilled perfectly and was tender. The bread served was good and came with a red pepper and olive oil dipping sauce. The wine list is decent as well. My husband and I shared the prosciutto & fig pizza. It was flavorful, but the crust was not the Neapolitan type that is thin and crusty with air pockets. I was expecting a more traditional type pizza that I enjoy in Italy when I saw the pizza oven in the kitchen. I ordered the burrata & beet salad, but was very disappointed when it was just round pieces of beets with orange segments and four generous portions of the burrata, no greens. I wanted more salad and this was definitely a starter dish to share. I was thinking I would get more of a salad-type dish since it was under the “insalata” section. It came with a quality pieces of grilled bread and I did enjoy the orange and beet combination. I ended up taking three burrata rounds home as one person could not eat four huge balls of cheese. Well, at least this person couldn’t. My husband had the Ragu della Domenica, rigatoni with meatballs & sausage. It lacked flavor although it did look appetizing. I also missed the crema di limoncello that Sonny use to make at the bar. It was another disappointment for me. I really looked forward to having that after dinner, but it wasn’t offered anymore. Overall, I won’t be back to this restaurant because it didn’t hold up to all my other visits. Sad.
