What Insiders Are Saying
Coda Di Volpe is an Italian restaurant in Lakeview serving wood-fired pizzas.
My favorite part of the meal was the dessert. The chocolate Ganache Mousse was to die for. The crisp toasted apple pear slices were a delicious contrast to the rich chocolaty mousse. Fabulous dessert!
Best Harvest dinner we could have ever imagined. Very memorable evening if great food and fun!
Great atmosphere, outstanding service and delicious food and drinks!
Warm and attentive hosting and service, and very good pasta, all in lovely surroundings
We snuck in on a 4:30 reservation for early dinner before a play, coming in from MI. It was already not empty and moderately lively by the time we left. The decor is really cute mid-century modern, well executed. Friendly staff. We had the divine octopus, and the arancini, which was also very good. Then we had the caeser salad (very good), and then the pheasant agnolotti (light, salty, UT very flavorful), and a chocolate ganache dessert with flamed pears. We split all of these dishes between two, which was a lot of food. Everything was very tasty, but the octopus is the show stealer. Would easily go again.
Stellar Service but the menu is limited and the pizza just mediocre--Spacca and Frasca offer more flavor.
Our meal at CDV was fine....we were seated immediately and given time to review the menu. We ordered a pasta dish, saffron pasta with clams and shrimp, which was quite good, but meager in portion, at $23 I was hoping to not still be hungry when I finished. My wife ordered the chicken dish, which was delicious and ample in portion, though not the half-chicken that was described. The chicken dish was slightly too salty, fortunately we both like salt! Wines by the glass were fine and bottles seem well-priced. All in all a good meal....
Great for brunch and groups. Service and experience always the best
absolutely one of our favorite chicago spots!
Fabulous food ! The dessert was amazing we had the Budino ! The waitress was great too! Can’t wait to go back really soon!
What a great experience - everything was wonderful. Loved this place. The food was outstanding - we had a couple of the pizzas (wow!) and I had the seafood pasta. Delicious. Charred broccolini was awesome. And the service was really outstanding. We'll be back.
Food is unique, with delicious blend of flavors and textures.
First time at this great local spot! As a Gnocchi connoisseur, I'd have to give the Butternut Squash Gnocchi dish a 10! Delish....as were the Fried Zucchini Fritters, and the Grilled Octopus appetizer-- soooo tender! Everything was really tasty....and loved that you can actually have a conversation, and hear your dinner partner :-) Although a bit pricey, will definitely be back!
Fantastic spot. Our waiter Graham was exceptionally great
We went here for birthday/pre-theater dinner. We had a really great experience. The food was delicious. And the service very attentive. We will definitely come back.
Fun environment with a great vibe. Food choices were shared around the table to try a variety of options. All delicious! Great little birthday treat for all to share as well. Friendly staff made it a perfect night. Thank you!
I can’t write enough about this fabulous restaurant! It’s Octobet and I have to say this is the BEST restaurant I’ve eaten at in Chicago this year. Trust me, it will not disappoint.
This is one of my very favorite restaurants. Their pasta is homemade and they cure their meat in-house. Love!
Everything was outstanding! The pizza and arugula salad was so delicious. The service was impeccable. We will definitely be back!
Coda Di Volpe remains our neighborhood favorite. The servers are attentive and knowledgeable. The food, meant for sharing which is my favorite way to eat, never disappoints. We started with Fritto Misto (excellent), then the arugula and grape salad which we order every time, then we split one of their delicious pizzas (Salsiccia but also love the others) and then split butternut squash and gnocchi in sage butter sauce. Enjoyed every bite.
Small portions, not flavorful
Great ambiance, noise level is pretty high. Servers very attentive and the food was amazing!
Our second time here. Service was outstanding from the moment we arrived to when we received the check. The food was absolutely delicious. I grew up with a grandma from Sicily, so I'm extremely picky about my Italian food. We will definitely be back.
I liked the portion size and how everything was plated. It was all very tasty - good flavor combinations. The gnocchi was light and flavorful, all of the tomatoes were fresh. Looking forward to going back here.
Upon getting there ugh TRAFFIC even using my fave Waze app yes it takes one off the highway BUT we now have stoplights and traffic....
The restaurant is darling hip vibrant fun friendly our server DUSTIN was and is the BEST HE IS KNOWLEDABLE SWEET sooooo very patient and soooo verrry terrrrriffic
The foood is deeelish fresh beautifully plated the portions are huge we chatted to people on either side of our booth ... beyond my only complaint get martini glasses pahleeese..... I’ll be back
This is our repeat visit to CDV- now my wife's FAVORITE restaurant! Food was great- wine was even better and our server, Leah, was very attentive and had the best recommendations! And we got a visit from Billy, the owner! Everyone made us feel like we were celebrities!
Great service and food!
We had a wonderful first experience at Coda Di Volpe. Our cocktails were outstanding and food was delicious. Service was excellent as well. I especially loved the beautiful decor and big booths! I’m already looking forward to my next visit!
Great salads and pizza. Wonderful ambience. It will not disappoint
Wonderful service from the moment we walked in - host stand, bar, our server. Drinks were delicious, loved the octopus appetizer and seafood pasta entree. Very lively ambiance in dining room. Solid choice in the neighborhood.
Food was tasty and service good. entrée portions a bit on the small side but good nevertheless.
An essential lake view restaurant. Extensive Italian wine list. We had pasta but The pizzas looked amazing. Squash Gnocchi and bucatini pasta were excellent. The Napolenta pasta was hardier and perfect for a cold fall day. Don’t miss the ricotta doughnuts for dessert
I love this place! The pizzas are A-MAZING, but the pastas are also good. Super fresh ingredients, creative dishes, and beatiful decor and ambience.
The grilled octopus and pizza are delicious. The service can be a tad slow but the freshness of the food makes up for that. Very cool decor and ambiance.
Appetizers were good. We ordered pasta which was average and overpriced. The thing to get here is obviously pizza. With drinks, apps, and two mains it was rather expensive. Wanted to try and glad we did.
If you asked me how to describe this experience, I would say simply that it was fine. It was nothing special. The food was acceptable, but not great. The waiter was good. The bus staff seemed underwhelmed by their lives.
I would go back if a friend asked me to, but I wouldn't go out of my way.
Everything we had was really delicious, with the *exceptional* dishes being the pizza, roasted carrots, and desserts. Love the wine and cocktail list! We dined with our toddler and turns out we went at the right time because it was seemingly "family hour." But I would definitely come back for a romantic date later in the evening!
Great dinner, service, and ambiance. Classic negroni to start followed by the 2016 Angelin Langhe Nebbiolo. Started with Hamachi Crudo, heirloom tomato/peach salad, seafood squid ink linguini & Bavette ribeye cut. Everything highly recommended! Great date spot. Lincoln Park gem!
Overall excellent quality and attractive room. Service was polite and correct but a little slow. I was surprised that bread was not offered; that's not typical of restaurants in Italy!
This is my favorite neighborhood restaurant. The food is always amazing (both brunch and dinner). The service is flawless and the staff is so helpful. My favorites include the chicken, pizza and bucatini.
