    We have dined at Petterino's frequently because of its proximity to Goodman. Unfortunately, this last meal was one of the worst we've experienced in Chicago. The old fashioned my friend ordered and the Manhattan I ordered were undrinkable. My friend is not the kind to complain, but I sent mine back. It tasted like a kiddie cocktail with too much bitters. The Caesar salads were made up of chopped iceberg lettuce and dressing. So, nothing green in that substandard salad. The MP lobster and shrimp risotto was soupy (think SpaghettiOs® with rice). The shrimp on top of this mess was incongruously perfectly prepared. I detected no lobster. My spouse had the seafood pasta with GF pasta. The pasta was overcooked and inedible. The seafood on top of the gluey mass was acceptable. All in all, it was miserable meal. We'll dine at Catch 35 for our next visit to Goodman.

    Our server was amazing but the meatball apps was cold. sea bass was on the set menu and it was not sea bass. it was a whitefish and was flat not flaky as sea bass. sea bass is more expensive than white fish.

    We have gone several times to Petterino's for lunch and dinner. We have always had a different server and each and everyone of them has just been fantastic. The entire staff is friendly and just makes you experience that much better. We also make it a point to try something new every time we go and the food has never disappointed. Delicious! Highly recommend.

    This is a quality restaurant! Always has been. We were celebrating a birthday. Reserved through Open Table, which is excellent by the way. Absolutely no waiting. From appetizers to dessert, everything was excellent, including the ice cream with the cute happy birthday chocolate colored card and candle. The restaurant is located right next door to the Goodman Theater, where we had tickets. Tou can enter the theater right from the restaurant! Which, in Chicago winter, that is fantastic! I will eat here anytime- love the characatures!

    The Lox was fresh and tasty while not being too salty. Sea Bass was excellent, crispy skin on the fish and served on a bed of ancient grains with a herbaceous sauce. The Nutella panna cotta was a wonderful chocolate treat. Focus was on the chocolate and not on the sugar.

    Sometimes the Restaurant Week menus really don't approach the esthetic and personality of the restaurants in their usual formats. But the Sunday brunch at Petterino's was exceptionally fine, beautifully presented. This is the best reason to go to a restaurant in the first place, because if you can get mediocre food at a mediocre price, well, you can just as well do that at home. So far Petterino's is the best of the restaurants I have visited this week.

    The chopped salad was not as "robust" as is used to be; there must be a new recipe as I have eaten there for 20 years. The Ceasar salad was rather ordinary; more green Romaine was used so it was less crunchy than you'd expect. The shaved parmesean was great! The spaggetti marinara was very "tired"; it was "sticky and melded to the pasta so it was heavy.

    Great meal beginning with a very tasty Spicy Limoncello Martini, continuing on with Chicken Parm and finished off with Bailey's Tiramisu - best Tiramisu I've ever had! The service was prompt and very good, atmosphere cool with walls covered with caricatures of famous entertainers and politicians who have eaten at Petterino's. Also its music/conversation level was low enough that we could enjoy our meal and our conversation. Coming back to Chicago in 2 weeks and will book another table at this restaurant, we truly enjoyed our time there.

    It was quite loud. We were here for ladies night out dinner before show. The waiter was not attentive at all we had to ask several times to just get water glasses refilled. Even when ordering things where not correct but could have been because of noise level.

    I have contracted dinner theatre event space with Petterinos many times over several years. The food and service were always top-notch! Our lunch service was not. It was extremely bad. Their burger is very good. But extremely small for the price. My lunchmate ordered the seafood rosoto special. The waiter described it as having shrimp, crab, saffron tomatoes, and cheese. It arrived as chicken rosoto with shaved parmesan. Apologies given for the wrong food. A new rosoto arrived with shrimp, crab, spinach, tomatoes, no cheese, nor saffron. When questioning the server about the dish, a debate broke out defending items not mentioned by the server. Might i say this experience was awful! No apologies were given, nor compensation. In fact, no one returned to the table to see if there was anything they could do. We felt as if we were deliberately ignored. We both paid our checks, adding 20% gratuity on our cards. We both usually do 25% cash. I felt guilty because I suggested the restaurant for lunch. My lunchmate paid for food she didn't like so not to cause a scene. Management should have stopped by our table before we left unhappy. They did not. So now, I will not use, nor recommend, this restaurant to anyone. Shame on you, Petterinos!

    This was our first time dining here... had previously been just for drinks ... We chose this place primarily due to location (close to theatre) but equally important was the menu and reviews. We were very happy with our time here.. Our server was very professional and we could tell that she took pride in her work. She couldn't have been nicer!! We enjoy dining out and it is so nice when you run into a server with such poise and professionalism! There was not one thing that we could have anything but amazing reviews about! Our food was delicious and we were happy with the choices that the menu offered. Based on the service we received and the food, we will definitely make this a repeat location! Highly recommend!
