    The food here is always excellent! We were seated in the side room which was a new experience for us, and very cozy and quaint. The wait staff is always professional, pleasant, and very knowledgeable about the food and wines. The background music would come on full blast but always got adjusted to a more reasonable level pretty quickly, so we were able to talk and hear each other.

    Nice neighborhood place for a weeknight meal or a family get together. Good and service very good. A couple large birthday groups parties were seated near us, so it was quite loud. Good value too.

    Front desk staff was rude when I called them. Food was okay and our waiter was attentive. However, the fan making the light blink above us the entire dinner was frustrating and distracting.

    Loved this place, sat on the charming patio and had a fantastic server. Prices are more fair than some other Chicago Italian establishments. Had the bruschetta which was great, and the carbonara which wasn’t my favorite in the city but still a good dish.

    We had a great time at one of the sidewalk tables. Service was fast & polite, food was delish. Big portions were perfect for leftovers. Their Rigatoni Siciliana & Spaghetti Carbonara were to die for, we'll be going back.

    Was really hoping for a better meal here! I had ordered the carbonara and it did not taste at all like what carbonara should taste like. Super meaty taste and no cheese or egg flavor/wasn’t even a similar color as to what you’d expect for carbonara.

    Had resv for 4 people, showed up with 5, np, got us right in. We love the ambiance of this small Italian restaurant. Have come few time before and always happy. We brought friends there for their 1st visit and they were no disappointed. Drinks and apps to start, great recco's and everything came right out. No rush into ordering entre's, again nice recco's, even wine. Salmon, clams & linguine, chicken marsala, penne l'arrabiata, chicken parm, everything was excellent. Again, no rush to finish, had a couple deserts for the table, and the host bought us a round of limoncellos. Wonderful.

    Sat for 45 minutes without getting our entrees order taken. Totally understand if it was a staffing issue but they had a full team and the other folks that sat down the same time as us got their food before we even got a chance to order.

    Unfortunately, this wasn't a great experience. We were pretty surprised with all the positive reviews from food to service, Via Carducci fell short for us. We were accommodated with our dog on the patio and all the staff was very friendly with her. They also brought her a water bowl upon request. Full disclosure: I didn't eat, so going off the word of my husband and nephew. They started with a complimentary bread basket and ordered mussels from the appetizer menu. The bread they said was alright and mussels were a great portion, however it only came with four small crostinis, not enough to pair with all the mussels/stew. Overall, nothing to write home about. My husband got the shrimp and broccoli pasta. The shrimp were cooked well except one had an off taste. There wasn't much flavor in his sauce and unfortunately the pasta was over cooked. For an authentic Italian restaurant... that's a cardinal sin. My nephew got the fettuccini bolognese and said his pasta was over cooked as well. He found the flavor to be alright. My husband wasn't impressed with the sauce on this either (and I'm usually the hard critic, not him!) but rather just kind of mush. When the waiter asked how it was, the first time he walked away before they could respond. He asked again later and my husband told the waiter the pasta was over cooked, his reaction was to essentially ignore the comment and ask about the shrimp (bc he ate that part). My husband said he wasn't looking for a comp but wanted to let him know. He said he would let the staff know but never apologized and almost seemed offended by the feedback. All in all, there are plenty of Italian options in wicker park so needless to say we won't be coming back despite the nice patio.
