    One of my favorite Italian spots in River North. It’s classy Italian. During the summer, there is great outdoor dining on the sidewalk. Winter it’s cozy inside. The staff is always attentive and the food is beyond delicious. This is a must visit!

    We have been going to Coco Pazzo for years and never once were disappointed in the food, service our ambiance. The food is delicious, the room, softy romantic and quiet enough that you can have a conversation without shouting over one another. This is one of our favorite restaurants in the city.

    Always simply the best, as Ms. Turner famously stated, never disappoints. They even made a side dish off menu for me that I have had in the past. Always accommodating, always professional service. With Spiaggia gone probably the best traditional Italian restaurant in Chicagoland.

    I would have given five star review. The problem I have is my grandchildren, who ordered over $300 of pastas. When they did not love a pasta, no one said, we are going to charge you and adult pasta charge for an uneaten dish. Our bill was over $1000. I have no issue with that. I wish someone would have said we are charging full adult portion prices for every pasta change..

    Just wonderful! We came here for my birthday, and it was great in all respects. The service was most attentive and very efficient. And the food was absolutely delicious. They make their own pasta here. My husband loved his squid ink pasta with shellfish and I had one of the specials: Eggplant parmigiana. Exquisite!

    Pretty space, wanted to love it. We had to wait 30 mins with a reservation. Hostess and waitress seemed stressed. We ordered the Rigatoni and Vongole spaghetti, the latter wasn't good at all. Food came out barely warm as it was obviously sitting before anyone could get it together, pick it up and put it on our table. Meh, I'm new to Chicago but I'm sure there's better!

    Celebrating a birthday. Food was amazing. Tagliatelle Bolognese and Risotto were standouts. The ambience is warm and inviting - candles, white tablecloths, but still a casual feel. Would love to give the service 5 stars because our assistant server was super good but our server seemed pretty disinterested and came off as arrogant. Then he forgot about us after we got dessert menus. Serving assistant again picked up the slack. Overall really good experience and the food is outstanding.

    While the food is good this restaurant has a consistent problem with pacing the meal to fast, and the wait staff insistence that the entire meal course should be ordered at once is done so that they can shovel food to the customer as quickly as possible and get you out the door. This has happened to me 3 times in a row and I will not be returning.
