A great start to a perfect dinner!
Incredible. Very accommodating. Honored special request and server was wonderful. He was knowledgable and fun. A great fit for our table. Cannot say enough about the food selections. Views fabulous. Will most certainly return!
I would not recommend this restaurant for those seeking a lunch on a Saturdsy. Part of the reason to go there was to see a view. We were relegated to a second floor bar with high top dining or low tops with no view at all or booths hidden behind the bar. My friend said that it is better to go in the evening when you get the dining room view. Well, what if you can not go in the evening. We spent a substantial amount of money to sit near a bar, trying to eat from a high top which is not conducive to accomodating food for four people. I know that the web site alerts one to the fact that it is second floor dining for lunch, but it does not make clear that you are not in a true dining area. You are in a bar. Bottom line. It is a nice bar, but that is not what I wanted from an expensive steak house.
Overpriced for what you got. Tuna appetizer was offensive for the price. Dinner good ambiance was great
My husband and I are big fans of Gibson’s and Hugo Frogs, so we were excited to see they had opened Italia. The view of the canal is beautiful and I liked the design of the restaurant. As most new restaurants, the noise level was very high. I suppose all the new restaurants want you in and out to turnover tables.
The food was very good. I had salmon which was very good, but no different from salmon at other high end restaurants. My husband had a Caesar salad which he liked and a fusilli pasta dish with meat. It was very good. Interestingly enough, Italia has only three pasta dishes and they are smaller appetizer portions. Do not expect lasagna,bolognese, or other pasta dishes which is a shame because their pasta is handmade and to die for. The apple tart dessert was unbelievable. Their pastry chef is amazing. Overall, it’s a great restaurant with some really good dishes.
Wonderful restaurant. Has one of the best views in the city. Wait staff were wonderful and attentive but not intrusive. Would highly recommend.
Adam was great!
We had an amazing experience. They sat at us a a tiny table against the back facing the river. It was small but beautiful. Also very intimate. I honestly hated it at first but then loved how intimate it was. Our server was funny, helpful and efficient. Food was out standing. They welcomed us with a glass of Prosecco. We also got the old fashioned and polermo. Both yummy and refreshing. Will be coming back.
Lively, beautiful place but very noisy. Too noisy, I think.
Excellent service; decent wine list.
Ordered a steak, temperature medium. Came back clearly well done. I complained and they did not charge me for the steak. Classy. I'll go back and be more explicit about the temperature.
Our server Kaylin was the best! Her attentiveness, knowledge, professionalism and fun demeanor were all outstanding. We ordered several entres to share and she had them arranged beautifully on a platter. The ambiance of the restaurant was excellent, too but Kaylin made our experience even better. I would highly recommend requesting her for your next reservation.
The arrancini appetizer was salty and my lunch lacked flavor.
Everything was great - cost per person was a little high, but understandable.
We all had a steak and grilled shrimp special, with chimiccurri sauce, it was soooooooo good! And our server, Sukara, was just so nice, so efficient and so wonderful. the whole meal was a pleasure!
Beautiful space/view and superb food!!
Our table was one of those oval shape tables with almost no room for the chair and not enough room for our plates and food. We awkward design or table in the walkway across from the boots. I like Gibson Italia, but I hated this lunch and my guest and I were very uncomfortable in this table
Amazing! Delicious steak, great service and beautiful views. Will definitely be back.
Everyone was extremely friendly and the food was outstanding
We loved everything! Great food and parking we found was perfect distance!
View of the River was the remarkable part of the evening. Food not so much: long bone entree at $120 was gristly and the aging was not reflected by a good flavor.
Great service! Alexis was so sweet and took time to explain items on the menu to us!
Everything from the food to the ongoing attention to our good service was great
Excellent food and wine selection. We felt a little rushed through dinner, but overall we enjoyed This wonderful restaurant
Great experience. They even room us to another floor so we could have a better view after dinner. Love this restaurant.
It was fantastic. Everything was perfect - the food, the service, the views, and the atmosphere.
5 people, we all enjoyed our meals. Service was terrific. Definitely coming back.
The food and service are first-rate impeccable.
Iconic Chicago restaurant. Amazing food, view, service and people watching! I took NYC clients there for a business lunch and they LOVED it. So many good things on the menu but I LOVE the strip steak salad for lunch. Delish and pretty darn healthy! Perfect place to entertain clients, have fun and a wonderful meal!
Love the views, the drinks and the bar area is great. The service isn't so great and neither is the food. Just overpriced, mediocre food.
I love Gibsons Italia. We always choose this restaurant for birthdays. This is the best place. Everything is perfect: food (the best in Chicago), service, interior, music, view. Love you guys!
We are fans of Gibson’s but we’re expecting a different experience at Gibson’s Italia. The location is spectacular and our sewas very good. The food however was a bit of a disappointment. We have always had exceptional meals at Gibsons but had to send both entrees back for additional cook time as they were not prepared to our requested
3rd time in 4 months. Love it more each time we go. Definitely one of our favorites.
I made a reservation but no one was there to escort us. We were told to sit anywhere but it turns out there are 2 separate places to sit. The restaurant and bar areas. It would seem the bar area gets worse service than the restaurant. The steak was ordered medium well but came out with all of the skin burned. There was also dirty utensils and plates given to us. Food and drinks not worth the price.
Great Food, Great Ambiance, and Great Service. The view is amazing even all the way from the back.
We came for my boyfriends birthday and it did not disappoint! We had the best waiter Lucas - so thanks to him for making it a great experience for us! We ate our way through the whole menu - highly recommend trying that. As far as the drinks go they were amazing you should step out of your usual and try their drinks - so yummy! Thannks Gibson's Italia - it's 3 days later and he's still thanking me for a wonderful dinner!
We were in Chicago for a wedding and wanted a nice dinner the night before. We had tickets to a play that evening and had a 5:30 reservation. We love to try different restaurants each time we are in the city. Gibson’s came through for us! Beautiful views, superb service, and phenomenal food! Will definitely recommend to everyone!
Food quality and value too low compared to good service. Nice Chicago river view, don't expect foods
Service was exceptional! Food delicious. Thank you for the complimentary dessert for our friends birthday.
I requested a menu with no prices for my wife and was not given one. That is something I believe the restaurant should have and when requested should be honored.
