The food was mediocre, at best. Very bland and overpriced, both meals lacked flavor and were no better than major Italian chain restaurants. If this is the best Chicago offers in the way of authentic Italian cuisine, it doesn't live up to the hype. Very disappointing.

Great food, service is okay. Our waiter was nice, but not really on top of things. Loved the sea bass,rigatoni and gelato. They screwed up our bill, originally brought us someone else's, then again when we paid they had brought us another table's. They called to collect the difference, I understand they need to make money, but they should have comped one of the desserts or a glass of wine.

Coco Pazzo never disappoints. I have been dining here both with clients and close friends for years; and the food just gets better and better. The staff is outstanding and the ambience is superb. It's great for a discreet business lunch or a celebratory dinner with foodies and close friends.

Enjoyed every course for a Valentine's dinner. Very much appreciated that there was not a pre-fixe menu and that they offered a few items compliments of the chef.

In Chicago for convention. Lucky enough to have this restaurant recommended. Friendly and attentive service. Amazing pasta dish and interesting, reasonably priced menu. Quiet and comfortable atmosphere. Will return if in Chicago again.

CoCo Pazzo is my favorite Chicago restaurant. It has a classic “big city” ambience and reliably wonderful food. I have been a regular customer for 20 years and have sampled a variety of dishes from the fresh pastas to the wonderful meat and fish entrees . Coco Pazzo is my go to place for any celebration or any time I want a special meal.

It took forever to get our waiter to come to us. Drinks took forever and food came late. Overall the night took an hour longer than it should have and our plates were empty and our cups were dry for way too long.

This is a wonderful, old-school type, restaurant. We were here for our anniversary (and post-Hamilton) dinner. The octopus appetizer is delicious. Nice house salad. I had a special, house made cavatappi with clams and hub had the short ribs with polenta. They were both fantastic. The pecan pie dessert was good, but not really my thing. Great wine list. Our only complaint was the initial timing of our food was too fast. We would have liked to have enjoyed our cocktails and app a little more leisurely. But, it’s a great place.

We were at Coco Pazzo for an early pre Opera dinner and the food was lovely. Service was very friendly and attentive. They totally understood we didn’t have much time and did everything to speed things up. Would definitely go again.

We dine at Coco Pazzo at least a couple times per year before the opera. We also take business clients here. Even those who have Italian heritage say it is some of the best, most authentic food, they have ever had at a restaurant. It truly is one of our favorite places to dine in Chicago.

We really enjoyed our meal during restaurant week at Coco Pazzo. I had the short ribs and my friends had the cod. The soups and salads were really good as was the dessert. I had the panna cotta and my husband loved the flourless chocolate cake. All was very good and the service was great!

The restaurant felt cold, no ambiance music, felt like a library not a good vibe for a Saturday night for friends to gather who hadn't seen each other in months. Picked it from the Restaurant Week recommendation. We left as the salad was bland, took a while to get drinks. ...we went to another restaurant. The staff was great!

We took a business associate here who was visiting for a few days and the service and fare couldn’t have been better. The chef came to our table and explained a few of the dishes we were interested in and made recommendations of his own and informed us of the various locations of Italy where some ingredients came from. The management and service staff made sure we were always taken care of and had everything we needed. The food was extremely good with obvious authenticity. The pasta was cooked perfect al dente. Great experience!
