This was our 2nd visit. We happened to go during restaurant week. Great menu. My husband had chicken parmesan, I had a duck stuffed pasta with a truffle sauce. It was fabulous. We were more than happy with our dinners and service. We will be back again

Ambiance was wonderful, and service was great. Food was a bit lacking: Several dishes were unflavorful, and the lobster ravioli was uncooked (super hard ravioli edges). A few simple adjustments — mainly basic seasoning and minor cooking technique changes — will make this restaurant superb.

I had high hopes, and have been wanting to go to RPM for a long time. Much to my delight the food was amazing and the gluten free options were aplenty. I actually wanted to ask and make sure things were gluten free several times because they were so good. Service was fine, not too much not too little. The vibe was horrible, loud and you felt belittled from the minute you walked in the door. We dined on a Sunday night and it felt like a night club with flashing lights in one corner and clubs music playing. You've heard the drapes don't match the carpet? That's how I felt with the food and the ambiance. Italian food and club chic don't mix in my opinion. Sadly, the food alone isn't enough to get a return visit from us, had we felt welcomed and appreciated that might pull us back.

The food recommendations for portion size were good. This is my second time eating here and I enjoyed the booth seating. It was relatively quiet throughout the meal, even when it got busier. The dessert was fantastic.

RPM Italian was a first for 5 of our party of 7. Our favorite dishes were the Fritto Misto, Carbonara, and Spaghetti and Meatballs. There was a nice selection of wines and the seating was comfortable. The restaurant is quite noisy, but did not bother our group. I think just one area of improvement was our waiter. I often found her talking to or at us, but looking around the room or at another waiter at another table. Just some interested and sustained eye contact can go far.

RPM is always a go-to for special occasions or out of town guests. Our server DRE was awesome - ask for him if you can. Delicious food and fun vibes - something for everyone.

The service was horrible! It took 10 minutes to get get seated and the restaurant was half empty at 5. We had a reservation. The salad came out before the appetizer or cocktails. It took almost a half hour before our entrees, pasta was served. Ridiculous!!!! She blamed the poor service on the fact that the restaurant was so busy. Really lame. We will never go back!

Fantastic service!!! The PERFECT amount of attentiveness (some places serve you like they are going off a checklist...brings out food, comes back in 30 seconds and asks how it was...ummm...just placed it in my mouth!). Food was great as well. Wish I had more room in my stomach!! I'm a sucker for homemade pasta & it didn't disappoint. Focaccia with prosciutto was warm, soft and 100% comfort food. Dessert...ahhhh...before the dessert menu came out, I said I would order creme brulee or tiramisu if available & low and behold creme brulee tiramisu was an option...creme brulee tiramisu!!!! BAM! Yum!!!

RPM is superlative in every way. We are regulars there because they never disappoint, especially when it comes to their wait staff and the delicious food. We often take friends and business colleagues from out of town their to introduce them to one of the best restaurants in Chicago, consistently. It is a glorious experience.

I was so looking forward to dining at RPM Italian as I heard so many good things. I have to say I’m so disappointed in my dining experience. First of all we ordered the wild mushroom risotto. There were no mushrooms in the dish and it tasted like pastina with truffle oil. I could have done better. The second dish was Mediterranean Branzino. It was overcooked, dry and tasteless. Sadly to say I would pass on this restaurant

I love RPM! It’s a go-to spot whenever I’m in town and want great food! The crab cake bruschetta, prosciutto service and meatballs are consistent favorites. For dinner I love the lobster ravioli and squid ink pasta dishes.

The food and service was excellent. I did not give it 5 stars for food as I save that for Stellar experiences (think French Laundry). All our dishes were right on. Caesar Salad, garlic bread, carpaccio were great. The Carpaccio was a stand out as one of the best we’ve ever had. Truffle risotto, gnocchi and short rib bolognese were all wonderful. Freshly shaved black truffle at the table on the risotto was a nice touch (that night’s special). Desert was super tasty but we were all stuffed beyond capacity at that point. Nice job RPM, a really nice experience. Thanks for bringing out a nice gelato desert for my wife on her birthday.
