Great happy hour, although I would prefer more for options, or a healthier food option at the happy hour. I love the detail on the icecube on the Negroni, good flavor in it too. I asked for a small modification on it and the bartender was great at modifying the Negroni just how I asked.

Our food was great, the pasta was great. The lobster is a big portion and very tender.

This place is PACKED! We had a 930pm reservation and didn’t get seated until almost 10pm! Service was so-so and food was okay....NOTHING worth sitting in the NOISY open floor plan. Rices weren’t bad -pasta dishes were $14-18 but SUPER SMALL portions.....on par with appetizers.

They made us wait for over 30 mins and were unapologetic about it. Wait staff was nice, but not as professional as you would expect given prices. The restaurant was also so hot that it was difficult to even stand patiently in the entranceway, even without coats on. There were times during the wait that we had to step outside into the cold. We probably won’t go back. So many good restaurants in Chicago and this isn’t one to stand in line to wait for.

Second time we’ve been there first time great food great service second time great food bad waitress. Made us feel like we didn’t belong asked her to take a picture of our table because it was my wife and daughter’s birthday she said she had to think about it ended up asking one of the maître d’’s he took it right away. She started to explain the menu but we stopped her and asked about a drink at another table her answer was can I finish with the menu items first. We weren’t concerned about ordering right away we wanted to get a few drinks to celebrate the birthday very rarely came back to the table to ask us about things

Absolutely fantastic service from the moment we arrived. We were early for our reservation, so we sat in the bar. That staff was so accommodating when we went to our table and so was the main room staff! Delicious prosciutto pairing and the special risotto with truffle. Will be back anytime I come to Chicago!

We are from out of town. When we fly into Chicago this is always one of our go to restaurant stops. It is up beat but also romantic. Has great lighting. We have over a number of visits, ordered many different entrees and have not had one ever disappoint. Great bar area to sit if there is a wait. We really enjoy this restaurant and highly recommend it!

Seated nearly an hour after our reservation time...service was slow and inattentive, dirty plates piled up on our table through each course. Pastas were presented nicely, and complimented well, but most were too al dente.

From the moment we walked in everything was exceptional. The ambiance is amazing. The staff couldn’t have been more attentive. The menu was explained to us regarding portion size. The food was amazing. Our waitress was so friendly and professional. We didn’t need to ask for anything. She anticipated what we needed. We were celebrating my birthday and they acknowled that from the moment we sat down. They also gave me a little birthday treat. Would definitely return next time we visit Chicago.

I will not be going back, nor will I recommend this place again. They are over rated and used to treat their clientele so much better! We arrived 30 minutes early for our 9:45 reservation. And we weren't seated until 10:15pm! They seated us in a booth right outside the kitchen, and the vent above the table must have been connected to the grill, because it smelled like it. After asking to move tables, they just moved us back to the bar to a comunity high top. NOT exactly what I was looking for in a nice dinner! If I wanted to sit in the bar to eat, I know I could have been seated much earlier. I waited for a nice table for a relaxing meal, and ended up back in the bar 45 minutes later at 11pm!! I was taking out of town friends around town and thought this would be a nice place. Evening went to hell here and I left before having dinner.

My fiancé and I had a delicious meal. It consisted of the ricotta spread over ciabatta toast, shared meatballs which were delicious, truffles nudi’s, and a bone-in veal chop. We made sure to enjoy a bottle of Kith and Kin Cabernet Sauvignon. The appetizer and main courses were exceptional. For dessert we enjoyed an order of 4 mini cannolis and 3 small scoops of gelato. The price of our meal was way below expectations. This place is a great take on traditional but still indulgent Italian food. Great ambiance. Cannot recommend enough.

We’ve eaten here many time and sadly this round was my least favorite. Our server wasn’t fun/nice ... super serious. And the Brussels sprout salad and gnocchi were very bland/no flavor. A friend had the risotto and it was off the charts delicious!

LOVE this restaurant!!!! One reminder (and this is probably common sense to most people) is that reservations don't mean your table is going to be ready exactly on time. If you have a show or something that you need to be at following dinner I'd highly suggest you arrive 20 minutes prior to your reservation if you hope to be seated on time.

Seriously one of the best meals I've ever had! From the pizzette with pepperoni to the bucatini with pomodoro, ribeye filet, sea scallops, whipped potatoes, almafi lemon cake and a peach bellini to top it off, I have to say it was the best way to celebrate my birthday!

Small portions. Heavy on the oregano across a number of dishes. Ordered several apps and 4 different pasta dishes based on the server's recommendations. The service was excellent but the food lackluster. My drink was also watery with more ice cubes than drink. Despite a reservation they sat us at the first table in the restaurant. This spot would have us constantly bumped by patrons walking in and it would be cold due to being in front of the doors. I asked for another spot and they sat us at the 2nd worst spot, right in front of the kitchen entry. Better than being cold I guess. Too many other good Italian restos to come back here.

I came here for a birthday dinner and was not disappointed. The prices are pretty high for the amount of food that you get so I would recommend saving this for a special occasion. Everything we ate and drank was delicious and the service was incredible. I'll definitely be back!

Our party of three ordered three different appetizers, pasta dishes and desserts along with the Red Snapper. I had the opportunity to try it all and it was delicious. The staff were all very friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. I have a friend going to Chicago tomorrow with her husband and I recommend RPM Italian to them.

We felt a little rushed to order and food came out way too fast. Before wine was served. Other than that everything was good.
