This is a great neighborhood spot. Friendly staff and great food. Menu is updated regularly. Big fan of the roasted calamari and the linguine bolognese - as good as I have gotten in Italy.

Enoteca riccardo feels like a hidden secret for locals. It’s tiny and the quality of the food reflects it. The burrata is amazing and the pizzas are crusty and savory. A favorite!

It is a small restaurant with excellent Italian food. Having lived in Italy, the dishes are expertly prepared and authentic with nice touches. Rather large portions. We will return!

All good as usual but pasta entrée with marinara and cheese was overwhelmed with cheese. Just really wanted pasta with marinara with light cheese. This was my first time for the dish and I should have asked first.

We had a delightful time! Wish the waiter had known a bit more about the wine list but we made it work and the food was incredible! Wanted to take leftovers home but just had to finish it all!

My friend took me here for my birthday. The restaurant is charming and intimate. The food is outstanding and the service is stellar. I would definitely go back. Make reservations in advance. It’s a small place and they book up quickly.

This is an Italian restaurant that has a unique and creative take on Italian food. The restaurant week's selection were varied the so we went with two different entrees Roast Duck and Pasta with seafood. Both were very good, although the duck had a few chewy pieces.
The appetizer . of grilled calamari with salad was excellent.
The service was excellent and attentive.

Outstanding traditional menu with top quality ingredients prepared in a professional manner and served by a competent staff in a quiet, attractive room. A pleasure to have in our neighborhood, but would be worth traveling to. A real delight.

A huge assortment of choices for the $33 Restaurant Week menu. Great variety, huge portions, and great service. The Enoteca was much quieter than the Trattoria across the street--even in a busy Saturday night, we were able to converse and linger without any pressure. Food was really good--all in all, a great reminder of a neighborhood gem that we should frequent more often!

This place never disappoints!

Came in Saturday night for restaurant week and I was blown away with the menu. Probably one of the best restaurant week menu in the city definitely recommend it.

I’ll be going back before it ends.

We have dined here several times, the food & service are excellent. Storefront setting is cozy & comfortable. As close as you will come in Chicago to replicating a great trattoria experience in Florence off the main streets & away from the mediocre tourist traps.

We had a great time. The service was attentive, but it didn’t seemed rushed, despite us taking a long time to order the food. I really liked that. We actually were able to have a nice long conversation.

The food was unimaginatively prepared and missed their target. The soup was thick and tasteless, the chicken piccata tasted pure lemon juice and way too many capers. The food had to be sent back because it was cold...the plates weren't heated so cooled too quickly. This restaurant is a miss!
