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!

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....

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.

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!

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.

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!
