Our welcoming atmosphere and flavorful menu reflect all that is Sicily:
warm, inviting sunshine, sea-kissed beaches, abundant farmlands, and a rich,
long-standing food culture, infused with the unique and special tastes and fragrances only found on this beloved Italian island.
The Sicilian people treasure time spent at family dinners, sharing and laughing as they gather around Mama’s kitchen table. Osteria Rusticana is proud to offer you this very experience, right here in the heart of Chicago.
We use the finest ingredients (many imported directly from our network of family owned Sicilian farms), and our unique recipes (based on those handwritten gems passed down through generations of Sicilian families ) to bring Sicily to you, straight from Mama’s kitchen!
All of our menu cocktails are 50% OFF.

We didn’t realize when we’d made our reservation that we’d booked it for the first night of Chicago Restaurant Week. Normally, this would make us run for the hills, but the staff at Osteria Rusticana was so efficient and so cheerful that we stuck it out, and our night was WONDERFUL. The food is always amazing, and that night was no exception. I’ll have dreams about the polenta and lamb ragout. The suggested wine pairing - a shockingly moderately-priced Sangiovese - was delicious. The ambiance is lovely and cozy and inviting. We will definitely be back, and we’ve already told our friends to go.
This is the best Italian restaurant in all of Chicago. Umberto is so nice, knowledgable, friendly and accommodating. He greets you at the door with a "Ciao!" and makes sure you are taken care of at all times. The ambiance is cozy and dim, just how I like it. In the summer, their patio is unbeatable. And the food... I've never had anything that I would rate less than 10/10. The ingredients are fresh and all the dishes are busting with authentic southern Italian flavor. I LOVE this place. It's the most underrated restaurant in the city.
Really great restaurant... our server Gerardo was incredibly professional, attentive and helped us out with our choices and a few recommendations. Kids loved their house made pasta! We will be back to try their restaurant week menu!
Cozy and charming restaurant perfect for a date night or hanging out with friends and family
This place is a must try! From their appetizers (My favorite: arancini and calamari) to desserts everything is delicious! Atmosphere is warm and personal! Highly recommended!!!
Good food, good wine, intimate ambience, friendly staff..we’ll be back!
Very nice Italian restaurant in the middle of Wicker park. I ordered caprese salad, chicken, gelato and everything was amazing.
Great ambiance, tasty food and excellent service make Osteria Rusticana my favorite Italian restaurant in Chicago!
In addition to enjoying the very good food, we loved the warm, friendly and helpful staff. We also appreciated the moderate noise level that let us enjoy our conversation and time together with friends.
Second time dining here with friends. Great food and service! Would absolutely recommend this lovely authentic Italian restaurant to anyone who appreciate good pasta and good Italian wine
This place always impress my out of town visitors; Everyone was very satisfied with the food that they ordered! An extensive selection of Sicilian cuisine and the flavoring of it were superb and remarkable!
The manager was very attentive and invested in making sure we had a great experience
Had dinner with my husband and we had an excellent experience. Great wine selection!!
Amazing girls night out dinner! Delicious food and really good cocktails, our favorite: espresso martini, Aperol and ,of course,their house made limoncello! Great time, coming back for Restaurant week)))
Super friendly staff - family friendly place. Great wine list and regional authentic food options.
Felt very authentic, the food was delicious. The gnocchi was fantastic and the drinks tasty. We will be returning to try more of their food!
Simply amazing! Delicious and authentic food, unpretentious homey vibe and just a wonderful experience all around!
The food w
just discovered this restaurant, really good Italian food! We had the salmon and seafood pasta, and it was delicious. Also don't forget to try their fried calamari.
What a delicious find this adorable Italian restaurant is. Our friends brought us here and it’s becoming our regular Sunday Lasagna stop. Their lasagna is perfection!!!
I’ve been here a few times now, I gotta say, this place has the Best pasta in the area !
Amazing birthday celebration with my friends last weekend! The food was incredibly fresh and the service was excellent! limoncello is really good!
Loved coming back to this place! The staff is terrific and the food is just as good as before!!
Excellent homemade Sicilian food. Ownership is friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. Highly recommended!
Food was really good but the service was sub-par, to say the least. I had a reservation for 9:30 and was not seated until 10. Waiters seemed rushed and didn't really check up on us. No apology for the wait or inadequate service. However, the food was great even though the portions were a bit small. Would recommend ordering as takeout if you want to try instead of dining in.
Everything was awesome. The bread was stone cold though. That’s the reason for the four stars
Went there for NYE dinner. Was seated immediately. It was a full house so really busy. It seemed like they could have had another server as our drinks took a while to get. Drinks made up most of our bill which was 280.00 so a little pricey for four. The food was good. My hubby ordered the pork shank which was served with mashed potatoes. Being that it was Italian food, polenta would have been a nice option. Risotto was really wet although flavored well, I would not recommend ordering that. Staff was friendly and overall a good dinner.
Food was out of this world. Osteria is definitely my new favorite
Was on the business trip in Chicago. Had dinner at the bar and really enjoyed their food.. Really good truffle pasta and Negroni.
I love coming here!!! It has a really cozy vibe and staff is super friendly. Everything on the menu looks good but I think my favorites at the moment are arancini and Parmesan bowl pasta ( love Parmesan cheeseee). Also they have a great cocktails and wine.
You know you’ve found a gem when a weeknight dinner feel as special as our meal did. Hospitable and knowledgeable service and the best Italian food on Division. Can’t wait to go back.
Wow! This place is so incredibly good! I’m looking forward to coming back and trying some more dishes.
This is the place to go to for GREAT Italian food. Really good house made pasta, arancini and gnocchi. This is my third time here and with every dining experience I love this place more and more!
Food was amazing and the waiters are very nice and accommodating. The manager (owner?) made a point to visit everytable at least once through out the night. The food is on the pricier side for how much you get but the quality definitely makes up for it.
This is one of my favorite Italian places ever for the awesome food and ambiance! Their pastas are always so flavorful and cooked to perfection. Also I love their arancini, burrata and dessert- cannoli! I should say -everything is so yummy here! And always outstanding service - top 10!
Awesome holiday dinner with my coworkers! We had a party of 10 and everyone really enjoyed it. Phenomenal pasta, great appetizers and desserts, and good options for gluten free folks.
dinner with my daughter and son in law . they live in the neighborhood and like the restaurant so i have been lucky enough to dine at Osteria Rusticana a few times. Last night was a special evening and, Luca , the owner is so warm and attentive and adds so much to the overall atmosphere . the food is creative and amazing . i look forward to dining there in the future
Great location and the food was amazing! I will definitely be booking another visit there soon.
This is ours family favorite Italian restaurant in town. Last week we had friends visiting from Italy, so we decided to have dinner here. They loved it! They said that it’s very authentic and delizioso! I think so too))
Fabulous birthday dinner. Such a cute cozy spot!!definitely enjoyed everything from appetizers to desserts. We basically cleaned our plates though we were stuffed. The best truffle pasta in town. Our waiter was very attentive, great service! Highly recommend
The food was amazing, but it was super slow. Not sure what was
