Coda Di Volpe is a Southern Italian restaurant focusing on the cuisine and libations of Italy's lesser explored south. Chef Chris Thompson's offerings include authentic Neapolitan wood fired pizzas, a full butchery & meat curing program and hand made pastas. Coda Di Volpe is a nod to the true soul of Italian cooking in the heart of Southport Corridor in Lakeview.

I enjoyed my meal, but my husband was disappointed with his pork chop and also felt it was overpriced at $35. There was wilted radicchio and a few random figs and onions on his plate, which he did not feel made a $35 dish. The service was pretty good despite it being a Saturday night.

Excellent! We were a party of 4 , so we ordered several items to share. Every single item knocked it out of the park!.....so fresh, so light with flavors that did not disappoint! We felt like we were eating a a home in Italy! Thank you for making such delicious food and providing such amazing service !!

Went here for New Year’s Eve, it was a prix fixe menu, everything was way too salty and/or rich, and the portion sizes were way off (large appetizer and pasta course, smaller entree = weird.) Too expensive too. Probably won’t return.

First timers and will definitely be back! Food and service was excellent! We were not rushed as compared to some places and encouraged to take our time deciding. Somewhat small menu but literally everything on it sounded amazing. Our server was extremely knowledgable about each dish, gave us excellent recommendations and was very enjoyable to chat with. This has become one of our new “favorites”!

I discovered Coda Di Volpe four weeks ago and have now dined there three times. The food is extraordinary, service exceptional, and the ambiance is wonderful. It's one of those rare restaurants that is consistent in quality each and every time visited. I have told everyone I know about this rare find.

The white wines by the glass have little or no body. Mostly flinty and dull. Even the Napa Chardonnay was disappointing. The grilled octopus wasn't very tasty. Too many other ingredients on the plate. It would have been tastier with just olive oil and lemon. The red snapper was excellent. Crispy and moist. Gelato was very good and the coffee was outstanding.

Sitting at the bar seems to be the weak link here. The food was quite good but service was perfunctory at best. The bar tender could barely grace us with a word. This is most definitely not the case at other restos in this group, such as Acanto. To the resto’s credit, the manager was receptive to feedbacks. However our dinner was ruined after the appetizers and we had no desire to go on to the main course. The happy hour wine (cheap) was dreadful.

This is the 2nd time in as many months that we had a wait of at least 30 minutes before we were seated despite having a reservation. And for a reservation of six, we were seated in a 5-person booth with an extra seat brought in, so our reservation was not actually honored. Food and service after we sat was great, but not worth the delays - especially considering this has happened twice and doesn't seem to be getting fixed...

I would recommend but with a caveat. The restaurant itself was cozy and decorated nicely for the holidays. Our server, Leah, was amazing. The food was pricey for what we got and it was so noisy that we struggled to converse. Also, we came here thinking that given the price point, we wouldn't have to deal with screaming kids - but there were a few tables around us with children. Food was nice, service was great - but this is not the place to catch up with an old friend in peace.

Excellent service and ambiance. Everyone was friendly, and you can tell they run an “all hands in” business, as multiple people served us. The contemporary interior design complimented the basic, yet rich in taste, menu. Can’t wait to return!

This was my second time dining at Coda Di Volpe and both times both the food and service were excellent. I drool just thinking about the octopus, salads, and pizza. I would give this restaurant five stars on every category, except the noise level was a wee bit too loud, but of course, the restaurant was full.
I'm looking forward to my next trip to Coda Di Volpe.
