Our 7:00 reservation turned into an 8pm seating. Not sure what was going on but it seemed like they took way more reservations than they had tables.

Terribly loud. Ask for just a little bit of marinara sauce to put on my sausage and they charged me five dollars for it

Food was very good. Felt a little rushed. Entree was served before we were able to finish salads. Not real busy, it was late afternoon. Would recommend.

We had an excellent time at Chicago Prime Italian. Service was outstanding. Food was prepared as we like it. Pasta was done perfectly. Brick chicken was crispy and very tasty.
Andy, the owner, came by to say hello, as we have been here many times in the past. This was our first dine in at a restaurant since Covid began and we were not disappointed.

My husband and I dined here for Valentine's Day. The service was excellent. However, I ordered a $65 steak and lobster, and they were both overcooked. The seasoning was very good, and food definitely still edible, but I was a little disappointed that it was not cooked perfectly given the high cost of the meal. My husband had the chicken parmesan which he said was delicious. Also the martinis were amazing. We have eaten here many times before and food is always good, so I will give them a pass on this most recent experience given how busy they were on Valentine's Day.

For Valentines day the restaurant was fully booked and the kitchen could not handle the volume of costumers. They were sending out food pretty quickly, but when we ordered from their Valentines special menue the firts time the steak came out dry and weeeelll done but we ordered medium. So the waiter took it back to the kitchen. The second time the steak came out RAW not ever rare. It was raw! It was not worth 55$. On a separate note our waiter was great, prompt service, professional and very friendly.

We went to celebrate our anniversary which happened to fall on valentines weekend. Our server was very attentive but didn’t really have much knowledge of wine, and although we told the restaurant it was our anniversary it wasn’t even acknowledged which was a bit disappointing. Food was good, wine selection wasn’t the best. They were our of our first two selections and then the third choice was terrible... a nice Italian restaurant shouldn’t be serving cheap wine if you’re charging $100 bottle!

Food was amazing. I got the Penne Arabiatta, which can, in soime restaurants, be very bland. This was EXCELLENT. My husband had the Chicken Limone, which he really enjoyed. Desserts were wonderful. Service was very good, and the tables are separated enough for social distancing.
