    My husband and myself had a reservation for May 25 2024 to celebrate our 27th wedding anniversary. We had eaten at this restaurant several times in the past. On our special day the food was not up to par. We both ordered the cowboy cut ribeye steak priced at $70.00 each. We ordered medium well but was given medium. My husband’s steak was drowning in blood and had several layers of fat. The meal was disgusting and our special dinner was ruined. Restaurants need to be cognizant that people pay a lot of money while dining out and expect to receive a delicious meal that taste good. I have cooked flavorful steak at home DO BETTER

    Another great experience at Chicago Prime Italian! Service, food, and atmosphere were outstanding! Chicken Marsala, chicken parm, twin filets, and 8oz filet Oscar style were delicious! For quality and value, Prime Italian is a must visit!

    Chicago Prime Italian is a family-owned restaurant located in Schaumburg, Illinois, offering a rich dining experience with a strong emphasis on traditional Italian cuisine. The restaurant prides itself on its homemade pasta and sauces, alongside a menu featuring steaks, veal, chops, and fresh seafood. Known for its elegant décor and welcoming atmosphere, Chicago Prime Italian serves as a popular destination for both casual and special occasions. It provides a diverse dining experience with options for private dining, outdoor seating, and live entertainment, making it a staple in the local community. Here’s how my adventure unfolded… At Chicago Prime Italian, the simple yet irresistible offering of sliced Italian bread, drenched in olive oil and seasoned perfectly with salt and pepper, sets a promising stage. It's the kind of starter that tempts you to fill up before the main course even makes its appearance. The meal began with a robust cup of lentil soup, hearty and comforting, a perfect preamble to the crisp, fresh flavors of the house salad. This salad, a blend of field greens, shredded carrots, cabbage, and cherry tomatoes, gets a delightful punch from crumbled Gorgonzola and a zesty balsamic vinaigrette. The centerpiece of the dinner, the meat lasagna, was a meticulously layered affair of imported artisan cheeses and rich Bolognese sauce, showcasing the authenticity and depth of flavor that Italian cuisine is celebrated for. Foregoing dessert, I capped the meal with a customary cappuccino, which was as richly brewed as one might expect in such an establishment. A fabulous culinary find, Chicago Prime Italian excels not only in its food but also in its service. Martha, my server, attended to every detail with grace and efficiency—a noteworthy mention indeed. A dining experience here is thoroughly commendable.

    Split the blackened scallop app.. Very good but pricey. Pasta Fagioli soup very good. Had the fettuccine alfredo and the lasagna. Fettuccine was light on the portion size and just average. Lasagna was a man size portion but also average. The Special - Chilean Sea Bass was excellent. The service was Michelin - like.
