Our menu is based on classic dishes that we experienced in people"s homes in Italy. Some are family recipes and others we learned by cooking with friends back home in Roma.
This menu is structured for either a classic or family style "tasting" dining experience, depending on what mood you're in! No matter which way you dine we do encourage you to share and to try each other's dishes.
I hope you enjoy the simple ingredient combinations and taste the spirit of Rome in Chicago. Always remember that if you've had something here before and you don't see it on the menu, just ask. If we can make it for you we will.

The menu was great - would try everything on it! The bruschetta flight was amazing - brilliant idea. Atmosphere was nice - quiet dining experience.
Waiter seemed very rushed and impatient but the food was very good. The back courtyard is very charming.
the hidden surprise is the quaint outdoor patio garden. Fantastic bruscetta - try them all. Friendly staff, allowed us to enjoy the evening without a rush.
bruschetta plate was good! pork gnocchi was only ok
Not only is the food here great and authentic, but the staff go out of their way to be pleasant and welcoming. Our server Ferhan was wonderful, smiling, happy, informative. We had the Pizza Ostia Antica (tomatoes, prosciutto, goat cheese and arugula), which was delicious and that was followed by the Giovanna pasta (spicy marinara, eggplant, basil and burrata with spaghetti - wonderful flavor); the pan-seared cod with lemon, tomatoes, spinach and potatoes and the chicken with lemon and rosemary, mushrooms and broccolini - both fabulous. Wine is very reasonable by the glass. Fehran then suggested the trip of panna cotta for a light dessert, and we agreed. Three tiny ramekins: the caramel and the chocolate were not bad, but the mixed berries was tasteless. I mentioned this to Fehran and asked to sub out one of the other flavors - she came back with a large piece of tiramisu! That's what I'm talkin' about! Service! Thank you for a great meal!
The food was solid, and they have a nice back patio for the summer!
The gnocchi is awesome! I would eat it again in a heartbeat!
Always the best. Take friends who have never been there. Love the dragona pizza and venison bolognese on creamy polenta. Everything is wonderful. Great garden in the back.
Our favorite Italian restaurant in Chicago!!
Great food and service.
Appetizers excellent, main course ok, kind of skimpy and cold, but tasty. Service excellent
Knowledgeable and friendly staff with some of the better Italian I have had in Chicago.
The food was incredible, as always. The seating is a little cramped, but it is worth it for the food. The service was a little slow this time, but overall very well done.
Enoteca Roma was so delicious! I could tell simply by reading the menu that this place looked authentic and it was. The bruschetta was great and I loved how it came in a flight of 5 so that you could pick which ones you wanted. There were 5 people in my groups so that worked out perfectly! The caprese salad was one of the best I've had! The gnocchi was amazing and melted in your mouth! My mom had a special pasta made with fettuchini and vegetables and it was outstanding! They were also very accommodating to her. My husband asked if they could do chicken marsala instead of veal and they did. It was fantastic, as well! Overall Enoteca Roma is one of my new favorite Italian restaurants. We will absolutely be back!
They quickly addressed a food allergy mistake that was made on my order, despite being informed of the allergies. It was brought to their attention and handled immediately, and they apologized for the mistake. I was asking for an item off the menu (my fave dish they no longer have on the menu), so I wasn’t about to make a big deal out of it. I was grateful that I was able to enjoy my meal afterwards, catch up with my friend, and make new ones with the table next to us. That’s what it’s all about.
I’d never had the chance to visit Enoteca Roma before. It was a perfect, cozy spot on a rainy Friday night to catch up with a friend! Loved the bruschetta flight.....loved all our choices but my favorites were the spicy raspberry jam with Brie and the carmelized onion and Gorgonzola. We split the beet salad which was delish and the risotto with prosciutto and Parmesan. Super friendly service! Very hospitable owner/chef! Can’t wait to go back!
Overpriced overall. Service is outstanding.
I came here for a dinner with family, and this was a perfect for the occasion. The gnocchi was absolutely top notch, and I'd highly recommend that! We also got a ravioli with apples and Gouda that was really unique and unlike anything I'd ever had. I got a sausage arabiatta that was really average and had a funny after taste. I think overall, this place was good, but I'd steer towards the gnocchi and ravioli!
Excellent food . We will be back!!
Love this place!!! Had a fantastic meal and great conversation with the bartender. For sure will be coming back!!! Best Italian food in Chicago :)
Super delicious and authentic Italian food! The caprese salad and spinach risotto were both outstanding and my husband loved the half pizza (huge!). The burnt caramel gelato was a perfect ending to this fantastic dinner! I haven't had Italian food this wonderful since my last trip to Italy!
Always love coming here - took parents, sister and wife to dinner - food and service was exceptional as always. We love Letizia and her amazing staff!
I don’t like to hurt businesses, but there are many good Italian restaurants in Chicago and this is not one of them. Not one person at our table (3)was complimentary of their meal. The people were friendly, but server just disappeared/changed in middle of meal and no one ever asked if we liked our food. Sorry, I hope they were just having a bad night .
Food is always good. We had a large group (12) and they did a great job of helping us order the right amount of food and pacing it appropriately. Their pizza is some of the best in Chicago. Unique in Chicago in that it is Sicilian style. Highly recommend!
Delicious food and wine! We did wine flights and had amazing tiramisu! Pasta was great!
Group of 5 had a girls night. Was a wonderful experience. Food was delicious (get the gnocchi), waiter was great, and owner came to chat with us. Overall lovely little Italian joint.
Good service and food.
Love Love love this place
We ordered an appetizer, salad, and entree, and the waitress delivered everything to our very small table at the same time. We felt as if we were being rushed, even though the restaurant was empty. The food was okay, but spending $100 to be out the door in 30 minutes is not a great date night.
Authentic and delicious
Charming restaurant. No hype around it-which is the best part. The owner came up to our table and talked to us about her dishes. Really really really great food.
Visiting my daughter in Chicago and wanted to find a nice restaurant to take her to in Wicker Park. This one is a gem. Excellent food from charcuterie to the main courses to the three panna cotta dessert. Felt cozy on a cold winter night. Service was attentive without being oppressive. Would definitely visit again and hope to do so the next time I am in Chicago again!
so very happy to have found this hidden gem in my neighborhood. the food was amazing and I can’t wait to come back to check out the cafe during the day! will definitely be back for dinner as well :)
Love the food, great, flavorful and authentic
This is the real deal. The pasta is home made and cooked perfectly. It is like dining in a restaurant in Rome. The cod was also just perfect.
Dinner was very good, disappointed that our arancini appetizer was cold. Waiter brought us another but nobody really wanted it , would have rather had it taken off our bill or a dessert for the table instead. Also being in foodservice and hospitality for over 26 years I expect a thank you when I tip way over 20%. I guess I'm old school because it doesn't happen. I guess I don't need to go out of my way to do that anymore since nobody says thank you or stops by the table after bill is paid to see if anyone needs anything.
We love this place, the food is always perfect, the staff is amazing.
The food was amazing!!!! It was extremely hot in the restaurant, so if you go, dress lightly! The service was awesome as well!
Excellent fare with super service from our waiter.. Nice spot in a nice location.
Lively atmosphere. Great food. Great wine. Would definitely go back.
