Pre/post Theatre
Classic Italian dishes with a contemporary flair have made Trattoria No.10 a Chicago favorite since 1989. Specialties include unique, homemade ravioli, like the popular Butternut and Acorn Squash Ravioli and the Spicy Sausage Anolini that have remained on the menu since opening. Fresh pastas and gnocchi, sustainable fish, and locally sourced meats round out the seasonal menu. Gluten free pasta and vegan dishes are available. The subdued elegance of the interior, with arched walkways, murals and original art provides an intimate atmosphere that is perfect for pre-theater dining, romantic dinners, special occasions or private parties.

The food was unique and delicious. The sausage ravioli was very tasty. The Tasting Desert Try was perfect for three or four.

I have loved the cavatelli with duck since they started serving it 30 years ago. Its the perfect winter comfort food. Wish I could have ordered 4 or 5 entrees because there are so many good ones to choose from. Trattoria 10 is truly a hidden gem that has survived the test of time and won't disappoint.

My husband and I dined at Trattoria No. 10 prior to attending a show. The food was fantastic and we had a great experience overall. Perhaps my only complaint was that we ordered a dessert and coffees and our coffee was gone before our dessert arrived.

We have eaten here often before theater. This time we were pretty disappointed with the food. The Caesar salad was not good. The dressing was mayonnaise-y tasting. The lobster ravioli was cold in the middle. The chicken was plain and dry. The chocolate cake was good, but I’m sad to say that we won’t be back.

Did you mention your concerns to the waitstaff? Hope we were able to correct it if you did. We have gone back to our traditional house made Caesar dressing after our attempt at an anchovy free dressing. We hope you will give us another try.

The food was amazing! Don't skip the appetizer. Enjoy yourself and get the prawns. The lobster ravioli is a must. The pork belly ravioli is great as it is topped in some delicious buttery mushrooms and hiding beneath is an amazing cream sauce. The flourless chocolate cake is decadent.

Lovely holiday evening with our family. Our waiter made excellent food and wine recommendations. All of the appetizers and pastas were delectable. Real standouts were the wild mushroom polenta, the lobster ravioli and the squid ink pasta. The strip steak was well prepared and the scallops were delicious. Branzino was not up to the excellence of the other dishes.
