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.

Never disappointed with high quality ingredients turning into a delightful brunch, lunch, or dinner experience. Combing back to find an attentive and friendly staff and a table where I just want to eat - again and again.

I liked this restaurant a lot. I had a fabulous peach and tomato and burrata salad and shared meatballs and mushroom pizza with my friend. Meatballs were very good. Pizza was good but not great. Salad was large and amazing. My friend had sorbet and gelato which were very good. You could order by the scoop instead of having to have three like in many restaurants. my only criticism is that there was no bread served at the tables.

The service was great, our waiter was friendly and always ready to assist us with any questions. He helped us select a great bottle of wine and explained us the menu. The food was delicious the atmosphere was perfect for a special occasion, the lance was busy but the noise level is low and having a normal conversation is easy without having to be raise the voice

Typically service is excellent here, but not on 10-15 which was disappointing as taking a friend out for her birthday. Food was excellent!

Great wine selection, although the by-the-glass options are limited to just a few. I ordered the sweet corn ravioli and was only disappointed that it didn’t magically multiply on my plate. It was delicious!

Will definitely add this place to our list of Chicago regulars!

Food was well prepared and flavorful. Outstanding and unique selection of wines. Waitstaff was courteous but operations seemed to be a bit confused at time. Despite the latter, I'd highly recommend this restaurant. A nice little neighborhood spot.

The food was just okish. It just lacked flavor. But nothing bad. Just nothing good. Nothing special. Service was slow and no one looked happy to be there. The general mood brought me down. Except for the hostess, she was exceptional.

Always love Coda Di Volpe! Such a beautiful neighborhood gem, management & staff are always so friendly and attentive. The buffula mozz pizza & bucatini are my go to's. So simple & never disappoints. Great beverage list. Thank you for always giving a great experience! ❤️

My second visit was as good as te first. CDV has an interesting and eclectic wine list, excellent selection of pastas, wonderful starters including some home made artisinal cured meats, and a selection of proteins that will satisfy anyone. On this visit I had the Peach & Heirloom Tomato Panzanella salad to start which comes with a healthy serving of burrata. I ordered the Sweet Corn Ravioli and my dinner mate ordered the Trombette Trapanese. Each were generous in portion, nicely plated and tasty. We skipped dessert, but on my prior visit, I was with a large group, and sampled them all. CDV is a friendly neighborhood restaurant that will not disappoint.

I think Coda Di Volpe is wonderful; easily one of the best restaurants on Southport. My only critique is that the consistency of the pizza isn’t there. Sometimes it’s crispy; sometimes it’s overly soggy with oil but overall their salads and main entrees are spot on.

We are visiting Chicago for baseball games. If you are near Wrigley Field, this is your spot for a great meal. Great fresh salads, pastas, entrees and the Soppressata Pizza vies for best pizza ever. Great service.

First time in Chicago. Booked Coda Di Volpe on a whim, based on the reviews. What an awesome decision it was! The service was absolutely outstanding and if possible, the food, beyond that. We had the arancini (probably the best I've ever had in...ever!), the Caesar salad, the Margherita/Di Bufala pizza and, the wood-grilled octopus. My palate is still reveling from the latter! If perfection had a face, it would be this octopus'! The wines and spritzes were definitely on par with the food. All in all, a GREAT eatery with a nice, quiet patio and extremely good service.

Great restaurant in the heart of Lakeview. The restaurant has fun outdoor sitting and great bar. Good Italian wine list. The pizzas are perfect size. I had the ink spicy pasta and It was delicious. Portions are just perfect size. Restaurant is definitely trendy and pretty. Not so far for Wrigleyfield.

Like every time we go to coda Di Volpe the food was excellent. There were a couple hiccups with the service, however they were immediately addressed, corrected, and very apologetic. All restaurants to take it notes from Howe coda Di Volpe handled the situation. I

We had a lovely meal here. My favorite part. was the signature cocktail (sorry, name escapes me), but it has vodka, gin, citrus and a sprig of rosemary . Delicious!
Appetizer was the cheese plate and entrees were a mushroom and prosciutto pizza and peach and buratta salad. Really good!
