Italian
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.

Known for fresh ravioli. Great mushroom ravioli. The lamb carpaccio is ok. The scallops are delicious. As well add the whole branzino (European sea bass).

A great place for a pre or post theater dinner. Lobster ravioli or butternut squash ravioli can't be beat.
Excellent service and good wines add to a nice Loop experience.

Our food was fresh and had a nice presentation. Everything is ala carte so it gets pricey quickly. Don’t go to this restaurant for a wide variety of menu items. A one page menu with ravioli featured as the only pasta option.
Our server seemed rushed and disinterested.

A very loud obnoxious table with 4 adults and 3 kids sat near us.

I want to start by saying that this was my 4th visit and I am way overdue for this review. Trattoria No.10 is among my favorite restaurants to visit while in Chicago, and if I was to rate it on my top 5 it would be a solid number 1. Have had the pleasure of being served by Tammy on all of my visits and she is a fantastic waitress as well as super attentive. She always starts by asking if you are taking in a show and on a timeline as Trattoria is right in the theatre district and if you answer no she does not rush you at all.

There are several starters that are among my favorite with the prosciutto and grilled octopus being top two, or at least the octopus was until they recently changed the way they cook it. You will not be disappointed with any of them though, and if you want a salad the house salad has a raspberry balsamic vinaigrette with field greens and goat cheese topped by candied walnuts that is my favorite of any place I have eaten.

Main course selections I cannot say enough about, the lobster ravioli cannot be beaten and is one of their best selling. Of course, all of their ravioli dishes are the house specialties and cannot be beat anywhere, this is not chain Italian or even close to anything like that. All of their food rivals anything I have had in Naples or Rome and without any reservation, I can recommend you try it.

With all that said, sometimes you do hear the subway rumble by from an interior wall and it can be hard to get into without a reservation so plan ahead. And finally, if you are craving something sweet after dinner the tiramisu will not leave you wanting more.

It’s fine if you need to stay in the loop but I would strongly encourage someone to look elsewhere. The west loop and university village are both close with better offerings. The risotto is completely overpowered by lemon, sausage ravioli fell apart, and kale Caesar was overly tough and very stem-y - basically poorly prepped. Also prices are much higher than they should be.

Went with wife before seeing a play. Were greeted by host and she asked if we were going to the theatre. I don't know if that had to do with it, but the service was impressive. Had an excellent meal, coffee and dessert and were out of the restaurant in less than an hour. Had the risotto with scallops and the Maine lobster ravioli. Both were excellent.

A fine combination of relaxed, friendly service, VERY fine food, a "comfortable" venue and a fair price (not cheap but, for what you get, a VERY good value.
Entering Trattoria No. 10 is "different": one comes in off the street to a tiny "lobby" to a set of stairs that goes down a flight of stairs...nothing "welcoming", no one there, until you come down the last steps to enter the dining room from "above". The room spreads out is front of you, warm, relaxed and quiet with nice warm lighting. The restaurant is larger than you would expect but divided into rooms that are modest in size.
We had a server, "Jan" who was just a charmer: welcoming, friendly, knowledgeable and efficient. If I owned a restaurant I'd hire this guy i a second.
I'd been attracted to Trattoria No. 10 because I thought the menu was interesting and I was not disappointed. I enjoyed a VERY fine "Manhattan di Torino" and my wife had her favorite beer, Lagunitas IPA. For starters she had "Shaved Asparagus Salad" which I liked as much as she. My "Grilled Octopus" starter was very good. Her "main" was the "Mushroom capellacci" which had a thin "shroomy" broth which was very good, if not "blow away". And then I had a wonderful "Roasted Branzino". I don't like to deal with the head, eyes and tail of the "whole fish" but the staff delivered the fish, as I requested, in two wonderful filets - crispy, seasoned well, perfectly cooked (neither dry nor "wet").
Our server "Jan" was especially helpful with suggestions for glasses of wine to go with my food: solid choices and NOT the most expensive choices. And he was just gracious and helpful and professional.
The nest time I go to Chicago I'm not even looking elsewhere....I'm going to Trattoria No.10.
But if you want to "check out" this review, I suggest you look at the menu.....

We chose Trattoria 10 because it was steps away from Hamilton- what a fantastic surprise! This formal Italian restaurant sends out dish after dish that bring a smile to an Italian face. Artistically presented culinary delights that we sampled included: seared octopus and Field green salad as our appetizers; entrees of Lobster Ravioli and Veal scaloppini. For desert we shared a serving of a strawberry marscapone filled waffle cone drizzled with caramel sauce. We did not care for the strawberry rhubarb pineapple compote, but we still managed to praise the remainder.
Service and accommodation are delivered with perfection. Don't hesitate to dine here.
