Everything was great. The only problem I had was with the manager. He was wearing a suit and was a little bit rude. Other than that, good experience.
The real Italian thang
Basically the food was ok. I had a veal dish, and the veal was tough. My daughter did love her gnocchi. They mad me a ceasar even though it wasn’t on the menu. The wine pretty good, but not worth 22 dollars a glass. If this was a 75 dollar meal,I would give it 5 stars , it was 175. Just my daughter and I. For the price I can not recommend this place. It was mostly empty. We arrived at 5:30 on a Friday and left at 7. Tons of empty tables. This was my experience.
Coco Pazzo is one of those rare restaurants that remains at the top of its game year after year. The branzino is always a great bet. The vegetables in any dish are delicious. (The only item I’d skip is the bread, although my husband loves the breadsticks for some reason.)
we have been here a half dozen times, always had great food and service...not last night. our waiter was slow and non- present. there are too many great restaurants in chicago to choose this one. train ur staff.
This restaurant has been consistently good for decades… I love the rigatoni, the chocolate flourless cake, and the antipasto. The best part of the meal however is the service.
The was the best meal I had since my trip to Tuscany. Everything was amazing, the service was wonderful.
Superb Italian cuisine. Excellent wine selection. Elegant setting, attentive waitstaff. List of options not huge, but more than adequate, and will accommodate gluten-free eaters (who loose big not having excellent ciabatta, or squid ink pasta.) Pricy, but worth it. On the small list of authentic Italian spots (Spacca Napoli, Riccardo Trattoria, Piccolo Sogno) that I go to, more old-fashionadly elegant than those. Spiaggia is even fancier, but even pricier...
Service was fantastic, food was mediocre. Ordered steak medium, and it arrived well done. Pappardelle had a great texture, but sauce was nothing to write home about. Lastly, at most Italian restaurants, a basket of bread is brought to the table along with olive oil. Here, a server brings around a big basket of bread and asks you which of 4 types of bread you want, gives each person a single piece (literally) and then pours oil for you. If you want another piece of bread you have to flag that person down. Will not be returning.
Very best North Italian cuisine in Chicago with impeccable service and the very knowledgeable Sergio as the chief resident sommelier.
