Had the gnocchi with crumbled meatball, it was pretty decent. Husband had the pumpkin swordfish daily special, he really liked that. It has some delicious, creamy risotto, too! The bread is delicious! The server was FANTASTIC - we really liked her. The price is pretty steep, but if you can come on a good special night, it's not awful. We had 20% off our wine bottle, which helped a lot, too. I look forward to going onto the rooftop when the weather is nicer!

Love the ambiance of this little Wheaton gem. I go there for the Lobster Cappellaci and it is delicious and worth the trip. It is on the pricey side once you order a bottle of wine.

It was very hectic, which was good to see as we are hopefully coming out of covid. Service wasn't as goo as usual, but understandable. One disappointment is the wine cost. Always like a little wine with Italian and most bottles were $60 and above

The ambiance is great and the food was good. The service staff needs a little more training to accomplish the higher end experience. Example: Our server didn’t ask if we wanted to order drinks during her first introduction. Second when one person in our party ordered a drink the server didn’t think to ask if others wanted a drink and walked away. It’s minor but for the price of the food I would expect servers to have more insight.

Reserved at 8 pm for my birthday dinner and called them as we were running late. They mentioned that we can make it work, so we decided to still go vs. reserving a different dinner spot, however felt rushed to order as the kitchen was closing. :/ otherwise not too much to complain about. Food/service otherwise was fine.

Lowlights: oversized Rigatoni not yummy
Rip off: $12 for adding shrimp pieces to the rigatoni
Overall impression: Quality: good to great Price: Exorbitantly expensive

We waited 40 mins past our reservation time to be seated. Place was packed, especially the bar area w nobody wearing masks. If you’re trying to social distance this is not the place to safely do it. Food was great but they jacked up all the wine prices by about 25% from pre pandemic levels. We’ve been going here for years but until they open the roof deck, we won’t be back.

We love Il Sogno! This was our first time back in a long time due to Covid restrictions. Our server Julio was great. The fish special and homemade pasta were delicious. The reason I gave four stars was the face that there were no desserts available and no hot drinks. This was disappointing but of course we will be back.

If this was not pandemic time, I would give it more stars. I was expecting less tables and placed further apart but the dining room looked “pre-pandemic.” We we’re lucky to get an out of the way table in the bar area however so I felt comfortable. The waiter/bartender was excellent!! He was friendly and knowledgeable of the menu. The food was very good- pasta with marinara and chicken Vesuvio. The salad with burrata and pear was very unique and delicious! Prices were very high- but I think that it what we’re facing now. We will definitely go back!

The Valentine's Day atmosphere was very festive yet romantic. Our server was attentive but also let us enjoy our drink then appetizer before putting in our entree, which made the pace very nice. The room was socially distant but you didn't feel like you were in the tail end of a pandemic.

great food, great atmosphere. My second visit to location. local hometown spot with other venues to visit in neighborhood. I didn't utilize the rooftop this visit due to weather. although I recall from prior visit it was a great experience. Has an elevator for the 2nd floor experience.

The pasta was uncooked and the claims where not cleaned.You could feel the sand in your mouth.The waitress took the pasta back and cooked the same pasta again that was weird and by the time the pasta came the fish was cold.On top of that when we asked for dessert we were told that they don’t serve dessert anymore because they don’t want costumers to stay longer in the table.WTF

We were limited to an hour for our table time so it did feel a bit rushed. The app was out quickly and then we were immediately asked about our entree. I would have liked a little more time but overall it was nice.
