This multi-level restaurant has a vibrant atmosphere, great views and good food. The lunch menu is solid and includes a range of offerings from salads to entrees to paninis. The staff is friendly and attentive. It is not inexpensive but definitely worth springing for for a "nice" lunch or special occasion.

The seating area is crowded. I have twice now been seated at a table where I did not have a view of the river.

Have frequented Gibson's Steakhouse in Rosemont and the city over the years, and have always enjoyed the Gibson experience, particularly the steaks. It took a while to finally get reservations to Gibson's Italia, but it was worth the wait. Part of the reason for the long wait is that the restaurant isn't that big, but the view of the city and the river is spectacular. The decor is really inviting as well. Extensive wine list. My Old Fashioned was one of the best I have had. They have many of the Gibson steaks (without the "meat men" and the "meat tray" that you will find at non-Italia Gibsons) but also an assortment of different appetizers and Italian dishes. Our party had a mix of pasta to share and individual steaks and salads. The bone-in NY strip was outstanding, perfectly cooked. Others at our table had filet, also outstanding in flavor. If you are looking for great atmosphere, wonderful scenery, and a killer combo of alcohol, steak, pasta and desert, this is the place to go!

Overall was very nice experience, except 50min wait time with reservation and not able to get a table by the window as requested ahead of time. But it's all understandable since it was a busy staurday night and no guarantee.

Been wanting to dine here for a long time having heard great things. We were not disappointed. Views of the city were outstanding. Cool Elevator entry. Very hip looking, nicely decorated for the holidays and nicely lit. Every person on staff was welcoming and friendly. Service was perfectly attentive and comfortable. Food was fantastic - bisque, scallops, meatballs, duck sagu. One slight developmental area was dessert. The apple torta we shared was too doughy with a dry outer crust, needing a larger scoop of gelato. My new fav restaurant. Kudos!

Great service and gorgeous room, but generally disappointed with the food. We have been to many of Chicago’s great steakhouses and the steak at Gibson’s Italia was unremarkable at best. It lacked seasoning and had to send my steak back the first time due to being undercooked. Very disappointed. Also tried the fusilli which was ok but rather pedestrian.
Lots of amazing steaks to be had in Chicago and considering the price we won’t be back.

We waited over an hour to be sat, past our scheduled reservation time. One of the managers said they would comp us drinks at the bar. The bartender was a complete jerk and very rude. When we finally sat at our table, it took 25-30 minutes to get a round of drinks. The food was okay, steak was over cooked. Overall, really disappointed. We were at the original Gibson’s a few days before and the food and service were both amazing, so this was a huge letdown.

Lived up to the hype of location, food, service, energy. We had been trying to come here for dinner but usually waited until the last minute to get a reservation. NYE we decided to have a late lunch which was fantastic! We enjoyed the wedge salad, scallop special, crab claw special, veal entree, sea bass entree. We did not have dessert so cannot comment. We would definitely come here again. Great view.

Combine the quality that has long been the hallmark of Gibson's Steakhouses with an even more interesting menu of Italian specialties with a literally breathtaking urban Vista view, and what you come up with is Gibson's Italia! Add in terrific service to boot! Great place for me to meet old friends in town for the holidays... I'll be back, for sure!
