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.

Oh, the seasonal salads and whole branzino--perfection! And the waffle cone with ice cream, summer fruits and tarragon syrup? Imaginative presentation and so delicious. A perfect meal!

The food was great and the service was impeccable. We had fresh fish, house-made ravioli, salad and dessert--all delicious. Don't miss the local cheese plate--equally nice as an appetizer or final course.

This is one of my favorite restaurants! It's good for pre-theatre -- if you book in advance. I prefer the 7:30 or later time - when the theatre "rush" is over. It's much quieter, slower pace and the service can be more attentive. Food and service is always good and consistent. They also have a great bar for cocktails or you can eat there as well.

All the charm, but the food didn't live up to the charm. The shaved asparagus salad was bitter and the pasta was tough. The flourless chocolate cake was just OK. It wasn't terrible, but it wasn't worth going back.

Have been here several times before and enjoyed entrees alone, but this time the portion was on the skimpy side, which makes it necessary to consider a starter. Service is great...although the rush to get the food out for theatre goers seemed hurried... Not sure I would choose again!

On a Saturday night it’s difficult to find a quiet restaurant with good service and delicious food downtown. This is it! I had the light, tasty sunflower seed crusted Lake Superior white fish and my partner enjoyed the restaurant’s signature meat-based ravioli (forgot which one) and we both devoured the chocolate, caramel, pistachio gelato trio of profiteroles with hot fudge!

We went to see Hamilton and I wanted to find a restaurant near the CIBC Theater. Trattoria No. 10 was a 5 minute walk from the Theater and the reviews I read sounded good.

The restaurant is downstairs. I do believe there was an elevator. Cute Italian cellar decor. We were greeted by Paul who was amazing. Very friendly, knowledgeable and did not rush us.

As promised by Paul everything we had was delicious. The Italian bread we were served was crusty and warm. The ravioli with squash is one of their most popular dishes. My friend and I shared the smaller portion of the ravioli along with a Caesar salad. The salad was fresh and the ravioli was so good. Everyone loved what they ordered. The ravioli with the sausage was very good, a little spicy with just enough kick. Another friend ordered the pasta with duck confit and she loved that as well. Unfortunately we were too full to have dessert but they did sound wonderful.

We all agreed we would go here again the next time visit Chicago. Bon Appetit!

My sister and I had a wonderful dinner at Trattoria 10 on a Thursday night. We started with the cheese and wine flight, I.e. one cheese flight and two wine flights, and it was outstanding. For dinner we had the lobster ravioli, which was out of this world, and quite a large portion. The service was great. A wonderful experience.

Husband ordered salmon. Long wait for it because server said it was being redone due to kitchen over cooking it. When it finally arrived, was still over cooked and super salty. Ordered orecchiette and area few bites. Asked for it to be packed to take home but busboy threw it away. They compensated us for both dishes but not at all the experience we have had in the past. A real pity as it used to be a favorite in the loop.

We had the signature dish of ravioli, both the lobster and the butternut. All of the ravioli had burst and had lost much if their filling and were stuck together on the plate, which makes me suspect they were cooked from frozen.

A great meal before the theatre. We started off with Spritzes, which were made perfectly. Just like we had in Italy. We each had a bowl of Minestroni, which was presented well and tasted fine, but was not special enough to justify the $13 price. My husband ordered the spicy Anolini that had a good level of heat in a great sauce. He said it was the best thing he’s had outside of Italy. I ordered the Garganelli. The chicken had a great flavor, but it was way too salty to truly enjoy. Less salt and I’d have licked the bowl!

Great dining club with a free entree for my birthday. The server also gave us a complimentary tasting of the butternut squash ravioli and wrote happy birthday on my Tiramisù plate. My scallop entree was delicious and my fiance really enjoyed his veal as well. Prices are a little steep but typical for the area. It's a lovely restaurant.

We had the best service. The women bartender who has worked there for years (sorry I forgot her name) was OUTSTANDING. She could do 10 things at once without skipping a beat. Recommended some excellent dishes (you MUST get the Squash Ravioli and scallops) and suggested a perfect wine for the dishes. We were so impressed with how she worked, we told the manager, who seemed like he didn't appreciate his hard working staff. Rather than thank us for letting him know how great she was, he grumbled that she is OK and besides he gives her Sunday off. Word of advice....with unemployment so low , treat your hard working, long time loyal employees with utter respect and thank them for keeping your customers happy and coming back. We were there Saturday night 8/31 at the bar....I would hire that girl in a minute!
