    The best Italian food I’ve had in the west loop by far. Went for a family dinner. Everything tasted like it was made with love. I’ve traveled to Italy quite a bit over the last 5 years and I can taste the similarities and flavor sas if I was at a restaurant overseas. Our servers were very kind, welcoming and caring. The portions are great and everything is very fresh. Can’t wait to dine here again!

    We are in our early 50s and went out on a date away from our 4 kids. It was the Saturday of Halloween weekend so we were the only 2 in the place at 8pm. Everything was great. Especially the service.

    Great Tuesday night, Group Tasting menu was delicious for our party of 12.. we had Patatas Bravas, Cauliflower, Croquettes, Nia Salad, Tagliatelle, Branzino and Churros and chocolate. Everything was delicious, great value and the service was really good. The patio is beautiful. They also had a band performing the night we went, nice addition. Definitely returning.

    Nia is a West Loop gem. Their chef, James Day prepares a diverse, phenomenal taste fest. The vibe, indoor and out, is casual and cool. Live music later in the week. Jarred was an attentive, solid waiter who cares about the details. Great guy. And Nia is there as the perfect host. Never had a bad meal there. Correction, never had a bad bite—all yummy!

    Spectacular views with a city like right in the heart of Fulton market. Food was an excellent delight ranging from appetizers to entrees and desserts. The pasta carbonara was exquisite with the pancetta along with the grilled calamari. For dessert the churros with chocolate sauce along a cappuccino. I highly recommend not only the cuisine but the scenic views. The place is closely nestled next to Nobu .

    My friend and I were there on Sunday at 6:30. The service was slow to start but otherwise okay. We tend to share a lot so we ordered the Nia Salad, the Lamb Meatballs and the Fritto Misto as starters and my friend had the Lamb Chops as a main. The portions were generous except for the Fritto Misto which was over priced for what we received. The calamari was over-breaded and too salty so I would definitely not recommend that selection. I did like the Nia Salad and the meatballs were very tasty, a definite repeat. My friend was happy with the lamb chops. There is a plentiful selection of cocktails, beer and wine at standard Randolph street prices. We chose the Skouras Agiorgitiko "St. George" by the glass, a nice medium body red that goes well with food.

    After arrival we got seated waited a little bit to get water or a menu or even get greeted by a waiter but nobody came so I ended up walking to the house and letting her know that the entire party of four is seated and we would like some service. 10 minutes later nobody comes so I was already on my phone looking at all the restaurants nearby so we could just walk over somewhere else and after about 20 minutes we got our waiter and he did well overall ., therefore more of a management or understaffing issue then anything but it made this experience very unpleasant so would probably not return

    The food choices were very limited. My husband and I enjoy eating out and trying different places. This is my second time at Nia’s. I went prepandemic and their food choices were better before not to mention the food was better. The service and drinks were good but was definitely disappointed with the food.

    I went for restaurant week. They were very busy so I understand why it was slow. But we were a bit disappointed to learn that it was a family meal serving situation. We didn't get to pick individual meals. Wish that was noted in the menu when booking.
