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!

Had a great dinner with friends last Sunday. I’ve became a loyal customer of this delicious Italian place since last summer. Everyone who works here is amazing and super friendly. I’m trying to support It by ordering their fabulous Food for delivery and also bought a few gift cards. Let’s support this delicious place in the area together.
What a wonderful find! We first came here during Restaurant Week. The meal was wonderful and varied. The Squid Ink Arancini and Pistacio Panna Cotta were highlights. We returned on Sunday right before the dining room closed due to the coronavirus. I am from a Sicilian family and the dinner was familiar but elevated. Umberto was charming and I felt like I was dining in a cousins home. I can’t wait to return when things open again
Great food but even better service.
Impressive! If you like Italian done right, look no further. Excellent pasta, appetizers, desserts, and coffee. Fantastic, attentive service. Small and intimate. All those things pale in comparison to one item on the menu: PEAS!!!. That's correct - peas. I know peas; I love peas and these were the best peas I've ever eaten. Peas, butter, salt and love. Enjoy!
Beast polenta ever! I also love the black truffle rigatoni!!
Everybody should go. Really outstanding!!!
Our family’s favorite spot in Wicker Park!!!Everything about this place is great: food, service, ambiance. My kids are very picky eaters, but they love their gnocchi, house made pasta and Lasagna (I think it’s their Sunday special) and of course gelato!
Super authentic (and delicious) Sicilian fare, delightful service, and a fun and cozy ambiance. Truly one of our very favorite restaurants in Chicago!
Delicious food and great service. The server quickly came up with vegan options for my wife and she loved it. pasta that I ordered was so fresh and the sauce was perfectly flavored, and really good wine list. Definitely a place to go back
Mmmmm... I was totally craving for a good pasta, I’m glad that I saw on instagram their Parmesan bowl pasta. It’s was exactly what I needed... sooo good!!!! So crispy and delicious!!!this spot was definitely worth the drive:)
Hands down the best dining experience I had on my trip to Chicago! The food was superb and the staff was welcoming and so so friendly. Every part of our meal was perfectly prepared, from the bruschetta, to the risotto, to the adorable bite sized cannolis. Overall, a 12/10 experience!
Been here a few times and it has become my favorite spot in the area. every dish that I’ve ordered was amazing; My favs: calamari, burrata, gnocchi, truffle pasta; and leave space for dessert: cannoli- yummm...great service and the restaurant itself is very lively and cozy. If you haven’t been here, you definitely should put it on your “must do”! Highly recommend!
I can’t wait to return! My husband and I celebrated our anniversary here and what an amazing time we had!

Osteria Rusticana was amazing!! Our train was running late due to mechanical issues and when we called they were able to help us move the reservation so that we could still eat there. The service was astounding, the food was unbelievable, and the entire wait staff was wonderful. We couldn’t have asked for a better Valentine’s Day dinner. We will definitely be returning!!

Friendly good service
Nice atmosphere, but got very loud
Might have been due to restaurant week, but the small space does it louder
Calamari, shrimp not very flavorful
Might come back
