👍🏽❣️very good as always ty 💗
This was a great place to relax and to share some good food. The meal was very good and was complemented by the service. The server made a very good wine recommendation based on my description of what I liked in a wine.
Top notch authentic cucina Italians! My spada arrosto was the best ever here in Chicago. Conversation-friendly atmosphere. Will return soon.
We used to live in Chicago and Coco Pazzo was our go to restaurant. Now, when we return, we keep trying to branch out but we always seem to return. Why? Are we stuck in a rut or does Coco Pazzo really possess a huge gravitational field? Our view, its the restaurant, not us. This place is not hot or trendy, nor does it want to be, nor do we want it to be. Yet it is far from sleepy. The restaurant has thrived by appealing to a broad audience from foodies, to locals, to special occasions diners, to opera and theater goers and conventioneers. It is always alive and this melting-pot mix of patrons are all happily, comfortably and even relatively quietly accommodated in the large, loft-like space with enough elegant drapery to muffle the sound. The modern-yet-classic Italian food is fresh, appropriately innovative, well conceived and always well prepared. The service is very professional, responsive and not at all intrusive. Jack Weiss and his top team of Roberto, Francisco and Chef Frederico simply know what they are doing and they do it 7 days a week as consistently excellently as it can be done. Coco Pazzo never disappoints.
I wanted to give it 5 stars, however my husband’s steak was prepared incorrectly and he had to wait for another.
I had the Pasta with asparagus and black truffles... and it was excellent! Exactly what I wanted but definitely on the heavy side. The wine our server recommended was also exactly what we were in the mood for and he did not oversell. The ambience is wonderful... it felt high end yet comfortable.
Great service. Delicious food. Always a great evening!
Amazing as always. Thank you!
We had excellent customer service. We told our waitress that we had a 7.00PM show to attend; they were excellent about ensuring our meal arrived on time. Our waitresses knew the menu very well and walked us through appealing alernatives and Coco Pazzo specialties. Our dinners were superb. And the ambiance of the restaurant is excellent. The only critique I would offer is Coco Pazzo's meat options are a bit limited with a heavy emphasis on "in vogue" alternatives such as wild boar vs more traditional steak; a veal option would be great as well.
Always elegant and delicious ... unchanged in all the right ways.
Food was good but not wonderful. We expected it to be better. Service was good and so was the ambiance.
The food and service were very good across the board. We had not been in for a long time, but now look forward to returning! The branzino was excellent.
Good food, great fresh fish, good service.
Has always been one of my favorites, service was very attentive, great place to enjoy dinner and conversation. Got my usual dish - pasta was tough. Very disappointed.
Extraordinary food! Highly recommend.
Our first visit — family dining (6 of us) with a 5 month old. Our table was perfect - a corner by the front windows. The atmosphere is refined but not pretentious. Our server was attentive and not obtrusive. The appetizer platter was just right for a start. The Italian Manhattan was a great twist on an old favorite. The Branzino was well presented and filleted table side. Several friends had recommended this over other Italian restaurants and we were delighted with our experience!
One of our favorite places! Always wonderful:)
Our favorite restaurant in Chicago. Never disappoints!
Excellent service. Provided a complimentary dessert with a candle for my 90 year old mother. Also exchanged a main course selection for my wife with no problem. Great place in River North for a quiet dinner, business or otherwise. Pleasant, attentive staff.
Our family and friends (10) dined at Coco Pazzo and had a wonderful experience. Incredible food and service! We will be back!
Delicious food and attentive service. Both seafood dishes were fresh and tasted amazing.
Simply the best food and service.
first time in about 20 years. Still a hidden gem. Food was excellent, service superb, as was the valet. Nice ambiance, mostly business atmosphere for weekday lunches.
Will definitely be back!
Enjoyed a team dinner with six of us total. Really cool ambiance -- a mix of rustic and upscale. The food is excellent. We had three appetizers to share. A few of us ordered the "specials" (seafood and pasta), while a few of us ordered off the main menu. Great experience overall (our team's first). My only dig would be the wine list, which like most Chicago restaurants has a small handful of $50-$60 wines, and then everything else priced much higher. As a business model, it would make more sense to have a larger selection of reasonably priced wines (that still yield a nice margin).
Our family went there for a very special Birthday Celebration and were very happy with our experience. When in Chicago would certainly go back! The restaurant is beautiful inside, staff are top notch and the food was WONDERFUL!
Food was outstanding and service was great! We ordered half portions of several pasta dishes to taste more options. One was better that the next. Highly recommend!
Food was terrible and overpriced.
Great experience, authentic taste, gracious host. Made me think of Italy (and I am Italian !)
Excellent food, especially their home made pasta dishes. Attentive service. Highly recommend it.
The food and ambiance to the night made for a memorable experience leaving my party and I with a desire for more pasta and pizza! But, we were consistently met with inappropriate treatment from the staff, specifically the older Italian man, who came to our table 8 times to linger and make for awkward conversation and shoulder touching. While the food was great, we wanted to enjoy it but could not fully.
One of our favorite Northern Italian restaurants in Chicago. Warm, friendly, amazing food, great wines and I love the room. Intimate.
Our waiter was one of the best we have had in the city of Chicago. He made the evening extremely pleasant and something we look forward to the next time we are in Chicago.
The food, service, and ambiance were all excellent. Coco Pazzo was recommended by a very good friend whom I trust and did not disappoint.
Coco Pazzo has maintained consistency in its excellence for many years. I've never had a bad meal here or bad service. The seasonal and special offerings are a delight. The wine menu offers well considered choices. Whether a business lunch, date night, or family gathering the Coco Pazzo experience is always a worthwhile treat.
Birthday celebration. Felt a little rushed by the staff
Excellent food and service. Good place for a business meeting, as it’s not too noisy.
Amazing food. The wait staff was attentive and the host was phenomenal!!! They went out of their way to ensure my husband had a great birthday
Been coming here for years. Has to be one of the most consistently great restaurants in Chicago!
Always excellent food and service
I like this restaurant a lot but I didn’t like my experience with the server. I was looking at the wine by the bottle section when she came up to me and said “wine by the glasses are I the previous page- continuing to flip back” I know what I was looking for & didn’t appreciate her comment. She was slow in taking care our orders as well. Everyone else but her had phenomenal service.
