The restaurant also has an open bar area where guests can order a signature cocktail or enjoy a glass of wine from their extensive list. Sophisticated and chic, RPM Italian is perfect for a great meal or late night out.

Poor service. Took forever to get a drink, even longer to get cold food. Our waiter was pretty inattentive, distracted. So many great restaurants to choose from in this city, this not one.

Food was great but a little over priced for the portions and overall presentation. We were seated at a table with booth seating on one side. The tables lined up along the long booth seating were very close together. So much so, you were rubbing elbows with the individuals next to you and the table had to be moved just to sit down and stand up. Appetizers were amazing, would recommend getting 3-4 then going for one paste.

I always love RPM and this past visit was no exception. We went for a business related dinner - 10 people total. We were seated in the bar area at a high top, which was great! The ambiance of this restaurant is awesome. The food is so fresh. I could really eat the ricotta cheese by the spoonful. :) We ordered about 8 appetizers/small plates and passed them around then each ordered our own pasta. It was a great way to try a little bit of everything. Also, I ordered a cucumber mocktail, which was delicious!

We have loved RPM. It was our go to
Restaurant when we get back from NM.
This time the music was so loud the people next to us and behind us were screaming.
It was our anniversary so we wanted to have a nice evening. Then I tasted my husbands pasta and there was a hair in it..,so sad we won’t be going back!!

I have waited years to dine at RPM Italian our food was excellent, portions were small but we ordered enough appetizers to fill us up. My 12 year old son was able to completely finish his spaghetti and meatball which is uncommon for him but like I said for the price the portions are small. I had the short Rib bolognese and it was delicious. Order appetizers for the table and dessert and you will be set. I will definitely come back during my next trip to Chicago.

We had a reservation the Saturday before St. Paddy’s and even though the restaurant was packed, we still had a great corner table for us. JC, did a fabulous job reviewing the menu and even made wine selections to pair for each course. My bf and I are food industry folks from Dallas and could not have been more impressed! Carpaccio was absolutely perfect! But omg the desserts stole the show as a great surprise for our table. LOVE LOVE LOVE it here!

I would definitely recommend RPM Italian to a friend. The food was very good and there was a large variety of options. A large gluten-free menu is also a huge plus if you have anyone with gluten dietary restrictions. The only "con" would be the portion sizes. Although the experience is supposed to be tapas style, the portions were still very small. One plate is okay to share between 2 people but not 4. There is just not enough ravioli to go around :)
