First time dining, thought food was average. Ordered chicken parmesan and the filet mignon special. Steak came out under cooked. Had to send it back to be cooked longer. Tiffany, our server, was very good.

Flavorful! Very attentive wait staff. Please add coffee to your after dinner drinks to compliment the expresso and cappuccino offerings. Paper table coverings over table linen detracts from the overall vibe of the establishment.

LOVE Il Sogno! The food is truly amazing. Just really good Italian food, and the meatballs they make from scratch are some of the best I have ever had! The staff is always wonderful and the ambience is vintage and trendy.

Celebrated my birthday with friends at Sogno. Everything was wonderful as usual. Rosie treated us to italian margaritas shots to celebrate my birthday. The food was outstanding, all of us raved about it.

A filet was delivered overcooked but then replaced. This diner ate after the others had finished.
Though we especially asked for little or no salt, the potatoes with the filet were very salty.
Spinach was tasty. Risotto was very good.

Overall, II Sogno was very good. Hamid was an excellent server and the food was fine. Only negative is that when we showed up for our reservation, we were told that there would be a 20-25 minute wait for a table. Isn't that why you make a reservation? Hostess was not very apologetic and told us we could sit at the bar and have a glass of wine, which we paid for. Ended up the wait was less than 20 minutes, probably because they knew that we were not too happy about the wait.

So disappointed ... I have been here once before an had OUTSTANDING food and service, but that was not my experience this time. SERVICE IS STILL OUTSTANDING. The servers almost move in choreography to bring the drinks and meal and clear unneeded plates and glasses. My water glass was never empty. The Italian Margaritas were out of this world! BUT, the entrees were not very flavorful, and were kind of expensive for the portion size. My friend was told his gluten free option would be penne pasta, but it came as spaghetti. We questioned the server, and she checked and assured us it was GF. He got so ill! REALLY? This is no laughing matter. We will give it one more try. One our favorite restaurants in Wheaton, IL fell way down on our list of places to spend our time and money.

I have been dining at Sogno for several years and have never been disappointed with the food, service, and wine selections.

You are treated like family by everyone and the roof top patio is spectacular. The owner has redone it, and you need to check it out. You will not be disappointed.

I would highly recommend Sogno.

My only problem was that my wife dropped the wine cork in her water and we asked for a new glass and they dumped the water and gave her the same glass with her lipstick on it. My wife drank from my water glass the rest of the meal...

Overall, food was good. I had veal piccata with spinach. For the price, it was a bit skimpy and would benefit from the addition of angel hair pasta or garlic mashed potatoes. It came with a large machete more suitable for clearing brush than cutting this tender piece of meat. Overkill.
Service was friendly but overly rushed. It was 5:00 on a Saturday night, and we were among half a dozen diners. Waiters came three times to take away plates when we were not done. Ill-timed attempt at super service or speeding us through for the anticipated Saturday night rush?

Food is good; portions are generous. Has a few nicely placed tables overlooking downtown wheaton and a covered rooftop area. If I could offer one suggestion it would be this> Replace your main entrance stair carpeting with a runner that you could replace every few months. Our first visit had us marching up the stairs and they seem a little raggedy with that old carpet----and doesn't make that nice first impression. Once you get up there, its nice and well appointed. but on our way up we were saying "uh oh.....". But overall a nice place. Dave was our server and he was very good.

The food was very good, but the service was very poor. When the bread was delivered we asked our waitress if we could get some balsamic to go with the oil. She said she would get it for us right away. Ten minutes later we asked for the balsamic again and she finally brought it. When it came to the drinks, my wife ordered a specific Pinot Noir. When the wine was delivered to the table my wife commented that it was very dark for a pinot. She tasted it and knew that it was not the wine that she had ordered and spoke to the waitress about it. The waitress came back after speaking to, I believe, the manager. She brought a different bottle of wine with her to show my wife and said that they "substituted" a better Pinot Noir for her. She asked them to take it back and to bring her the wine that she had ordered. She did receive another glass of wine, but again it was darker than a pinot but we were not going to push the issue at that time. The dinner was fine, the desert was very good and then we received our check. It had only one item listed that we ordered - the rest of the items were not ours and we knew that the check was for an amount less than what ours should have been. We did ask the waitress to look at the check as it was not ours and she said "oh yeah, that isn't yours" and brought us the correct bill - no apology, or "thank you" for pointing out that we asked for our correct check which we knew was for a higher amount. Service is so important to a restaurant's survival and this experience was not good, therefore, we will not be returning even though the food was very good.

We went to II Sogno’s to celebrate our anniversary. We sat on the roof top (which I recommend). The food was great. The rooftop staff was very friendly and accommodating. The view was very cool as well. We would definitely recommend this restaurant to our family and friends. We will also be going back.
