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.

Trattoria No. 10 is always a solid place to go before the theater. They have $15 valet parking, and attentive yet quick service to get you out the door after a delicious meal.

This was my 5th time at Trattoria No. 10. Each time, whether I am eating at the bar or celebrating my birthday with friends in the dining area, I am never disappointed! The food is superb, service excellent, and a huge shout out to Jill at the bar. She remembers what wine I enjoy, even though I haven't been to Chicago in several months.

Highly recommend this lovely restaurant for special occasions. Service very good. and food excellent. Loved the dip for the bread- although some different types of bread would have been nice. Loved the pasta raviolis- shared with husband and both the lobster and the butternut ravioli were excellent. perfect portions as well. maybe a bit pricey, but evening was perfect. would go back.

Nice place for a everyday dining.
Service good. Receptionist not empathetic at all.
We got the bread served 3 times with not charge. It comes with a nice cheese/tomato/basil cream. Very tasteful!

Our family of four enjoyed dinner prior to a show at The Chicago Theater. Our boys are used to dining out, but we still felt very welcome. The food was fantastic (we all had ravioli).

They have a kids menu, but the better deal is to get your kids half-orders of the ravioli. The portion size was plenty for our kids and much better than ordering chicken tenders. My boys loved the spicy sausage ravioli.

Our server was fantastic and the staff is very good at prioritizing tables based on showtimes at the surrounding theaters.

I have patronized this restaurant for several years now through their invitation to a "free birthday meal" and had been very satisfied AND encouraged others. HOWEVER, unfortunately, this year when I presented the same email they have sent me for at least 5 years, I was told that I would have to spend 65.00 in order to redeem the $40.00 free meal they promised. Now it is important to note that for the last 5 years THIER own Wait Staff happily honored their email without hesitation. Even if their practice was now changing, the attitude of the manager was so offensive and offputting that I have no desire to return and will recount my recent experience to others. In the past I personally escorted out of town guests to Trattoria #10 - now, NO MORE.

This is our third trip to Trattoria No. 10—we have made it a regular part of our annual trips to Chicago. The soups are terrific (minestrone and cioppino), pastas and risotto are sublime (the house-made ravioli, cavatelli with duck confit, risotto with scallops), and the branzino had a wonderful complexity. Wine recommendations are also on-target.

We decided to try Trattoria No. 10 strictly based upon an image of their Maine Lobster Ravioli, and I must say it was absolutely everything that I expected! Not only was the meal impeccable, the service was superb. Our waiter was very knowledgeable regarding the menu and pairing options. This will absolutely be a must when visiting the city in the future.

Very nice Italian restaurant in the heart of the loop. Great food, good service and okay decor considering the restaurant's in the basement of a commercial building (not a window to be seen). It's perfect for theater-goers being near all the major live theaters in downtown Chicago and since it's so popular with that crowd, they are particularly attentive to your timing needs. This is a high-end Italian restaurant that prepares traditional Italian cuisine with a modern, gourmet twist. They serve reasonable size portions; not those ridiculously massive pasta bowls found at run-of-the-mill Italian restaurants that emphasize quantity over quality. Trattoria No. 10's food is well-prepared, served hot, and delicious.

This restaurant was a wonderful experience all around. The food was top quality, the ambiance was elegant and quiet, and the waiter was professional. The only mark against it was that we had reservations at 5:45 thinking that would give us ample time for dinner before seeing a 7:30 show 1 block away. We were asked when we arrived if we were going to the theater (presumably to make sure we'd be out on time). But we barely got out in time to make our show, and had no time for dessert or coffee after the meal. Considering how early our reservation was (ie, not peak hour), this was disappointing. But otherwise, I adore this restaurant.
