Everything was great and our server was great. The only unappealing thing was the manager continuously coming over and wordlessly placing the bill in front us a few times when we weren't done yet and were still ordering drinks.

Service is very good. Food is good, and could be very good. Be cautious of the Calabrian chiles they like to use. Even when they say it is mild -- it can get spicy. There are some dishes that don't benefit from the additional heat and they will use the chiles anyway (Had a great veal dish which was spoiled by too much heat). So, question your server and see if they will skip it.

Food was AMAZING! Took a little while to get drinks and was difficult to hear each talk until the dinner rush slowed down. Overall had a wonderful experience, good service (after the drinks) and yummy, creative options. I will definitely be returning!

We ordered two pasta dishes, a salad, and an appetizer and everything was great. The server’s recommendations were spot on. We also were in a hurry, and while they were not pushing us out they were accommodating to our timing.

Nice neighborhood restaurant with great decor and good food. Very loud and difficult to have a conversation if with friends directly next to you.
It looked like a great bar area which opens up to the walk during the warmer days.

IT was a beautiful evening and I would have loved to sit outside but the additional wait time made that not possible. Lovely inside, delicious food and wine. We will be back!

One of our favorite restaurants in the city. The ambience is great, and the service remarkable! The food is excellent as well! My husband loves the pork chop, and I tend to go for the chicken or a margherita pizza, both solid choices.

I think Coda di Volpe's true strength is pizza and pasta. So - their brunch is not my favorite. I'll save it for dinner. Because the pizza and pasta are truly well-made and delicious. But they do have a great sidewalk on a quiet street and soon it will be shaded by trees.

Everything we ordered, albeit it was a limited menu (due to the time we came was our only availability) was surprising delicious and unique. My three different cocktails were tasty accompaniments. Our server Dustin was the best server. He was welcoming and informative.

It was our second time here, and it was just as good as our first dining experience. From the food to the cocktails/wine to the manager personally introducing himself to the service, we were very happy! We’ll definitely come back soon!

The restaurant was within a short walk of our rental apartment, so very convenient for a late evening dinner after a busy day. Four of us shared 2 salads and 2 small pizzas, and we were pleased with all items. The atmosphere was pleasant and waitstaff very attentive. It seemed that the alcoholic beverages were fairly high-priced. We each had 1 drink, making the total cost of dinner more than $100....a little steep for 2 small pizzas/salads and 4 beverages. But maybe those are typical Chicago prices? All in all a good location with very tasty food.

Service and food was very good except I ordered the appetizer special for dinner which was carrots and fava beans and peas etc. however the dish did not come with fava beans. I mentioned to the waiter and he never got back to me on that. It was very tasty but the beans were the protein and with them missing I was disappointed. I do know for sure that it was missing the beans because I happen to love them and was looking for them.

We loved it! We were there for my s/o’s birthday. Gaia was so gracious and sweet too. Very patient with us as we wanted to take our time a bit. We loved the ragú pizza. In fact, my s/o loves his pizza without cheese and it was perfect. The pork chop was exquisite. Dessert was a bday treat on the house! It was such a kind surprise. We will be back.

We had a couple of friends in town and they had heard about Coda from their kids so we took them. They loved it! Really impressed with the service and food and they were impressed that staff remembered my husband and I. Which is of course the cool thing about a neighborhood restaurant. The drinks, appetizers and pasta were all fabulous as was the service. Love Coda!

Came away with very mixed feelings about this place. While me and dining friend had a couple of excellent drinks at the bar and enjoyed that part of the experience, the dining portion was not so amazing.

We did get some good recommendations from the server for wine and main courses, the food was not nearly up to par with what I had read or experienced so far. Both dishes came out lukewarm to begin, and I was not impressed with the flavors or attention to presentation.

The dessert was quite good, but afterward, we felt very rushed to pay and leave, as it seemed like the server was in a hurry to leave.

I might go back for a cocktail, but would probably have no interest in eating there again.

Nice ambience. Server gave us excellent suggestions. Started with burrata, pizza with mortadella and pistachio and meatballs. Everyone of those was delicious. Our entrees were equally delicious. Chicken Diavolo was juicy and just the right kick. Lamb ravioli, gnocchi and pasta Bolognaise were all good too. Tiramisu was one of the best we’ve had. Only downside here was the temperature of the restaurant. It fluctuated between being cold and hot.
