Welcome to our Ristorante!

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.

Buon Appetito!

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!

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!

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!

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!

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.

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!

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.

My boyfriend and I went here on a Friday night date night. I was not sure what to expect, but was in the mood for some good Italian food. I was so surprised at the quality, menu choices, and flavor of all the food we ordered. We got the Dragona Pizza which I would HIGHLY recommend. Also very much enjoyed the wine flights. Will definitely be back to try more!

The back patio was everything it had been promised to be. The craft cocktails were wonderful. Food was outstanding and very reasonable. The service was unfortunately very slow - they seemed overwhelmed (Crain's had just listed them as one of the best hidden patios in the city that week - perhaps they we caught short staffed). Our drinks were very slow coming to us (like 25 mins) and I had finished my meal before my wine came (I cancelled the wine order and was offered it for free, but I had already finished my meal).

We LOVED the back patio! What an oasis from Division street! Really pretty and quiet. Food was excellent and large quantities. The menu was huge--so hard to make a selection. My only gripe was the waitress, Tattiana (sp?). She was friendly, but pushy. She said she was going to leave us alone and then didn't. We ordered a bottle of wine and she brought us two glasses instead, which we drank, and ordered two more, but felt we were jipped by not getting the bottle. We hope the service is better next time.

Very good meal outside in the backyard dining area- it was a very pretty, comfortable and spacious area. We were a large group and service was good, traditional Italian food was delicious for all. Waiter wasn't the friendliest, but OK. Overall a very nice place!
