Italian
A polished and energetic restaurant with Italian and Mediterranean cuisine curated by DineAmic Group's Chef/Partner, Fabio Viviani, also commonly known for his Celebrity Chef accolade as Bravo's "Top Chef Fan Favorite." The décor reflects a hybrid of a rustic Italian market, a fine dining restaurant and a modern, industrial tavern, bridging old world comfort and hospitality with a contemporary menu and design. When setting foot into this 10,000-square-foot eatery for lunch, dinner, late night cocktails or weekend brunch, you can expect to taste the same "from-scratch" Italian cooking fundamentals in pastas, pizzas, mozzarellas, gelato and everything between.

We were there on a Friday night. It was very noisy and hard to have a conversation across the table. But the food was very good. Service was excellent. They were pretty accommodating to us since my grandson is a special needs child with limited food preferences. Yes, I wouldn't say its a kid friendly place, but I wasn't expecting one either. The adults really enjoyed our dinner.

I came here for brunch on Saturday. Wanting to try something different, my friend and I opted for spiked cold-pressed juices instead of our usual mimosas. Unfortunately, we couldn't taste the liquor even after we were "topped off". The signature lobster hash was tasty, but cold and ultimately underwhelming. The size was more like tapas dish than an actual entree. Considering the $22 pricetag, they could have thrown in more potatoes or at least a slice of bread to mop up the poached egg. We also got a pizza -half truffle mushroom pizza and half sausage and Brussels sprouts. Because we got two halves, some of the slices had barely any toppings while the rest were overflowing. All of the dishes contained truffle oil, but I could hardly taste it. Generally not a bad visit, but considering the wealth of options in this neighborhood I wouldn't come back.

Unfortunately, our seat was a very small and tight booth for my party of 6. By a very noisy kitchen door. I requested a different table and they said they were reserved for someone else. I had this reservation for 5 months. Front door girl did not care. You would think a 5 month reservation would take priority. Unfortunate.

Here for my wife's birthday. My family split 2 appetizers, the coccoli and watermelon. Both were delicious and made us think we should have split more appetizers. 4 of us ordered pastas and everyone loved theirs, my son ordered a pizza and he was also quite satisfied (he didn't offer to share, even when every one else did, so I think that means he really liked it, but he's hard to read). Had the blood orange cheesecake and caramel cookie jar desserts and both were outstanding (and fairly good sized too). Service was attentive and prompt. Noise level good, even during the final four semifinals and some controversial calls (and no-calls). Would definitely come back. Had better food here than I did in Siena itself!

Amy, our waitress was superb person to explain the menu and the additions to the new menu. She made every one sound great and her bubbly personality was a plus.
The Alaskan Halibut was excellent and we look forward to a repeat performance.
They even remember my upcoming birthday and the credit on my rewards card without my prompting.

It was an unbelievable experience. And it just came naturally.

Best restaurant I’ve eaten at in Chicago. The pasta was insanely good!! We went the night prior to RPM Italian and Siena Tavern was a million times better and less expensive. Service was fantastic as well. Our server, Juan, was awesome. Then to the top the night off, the owner himself, Fabio Viviani, was there and was so nice!! Highly recommended!!

Really great place with home made pastas and really good pizza. I mean I was shocked how good the pizza was since I'm a NYC pizza purist. I'm sure the pizza oven they had helped a lot. I had the crab pasta and it was great. My girl got the lobster roll which I would skip next time in favor of another pasta dish. Salads looked great too. I will definitely be back next time we're in Chicago!
