What Insiders Are Saying
Bill and Giuliana Rancic force us to like them with excellent Italian food in a trendy setting.
Bobby aaaaand his team were absolutely fantastic! What a great dining experience, from being greeted on arrival straight through the entire meal. Thank you
Great food! Fun atmosphere. Will definitely return.
The food was delicious and service was exceptional! We started with the fried olives and ricotta with bread, both very tasty. Then we had the Caesar salad and the Brussels salad, again both very tasty but the ceasar was our favorite, especially with the croutons. Then for pasta we had the bucatini and the prime rib pasta, which were to die for! Will be back next time we visit Chicago.
Our experience was amazing, as always, never disappointed by RPM!
RPM was a fabulous experience, following the Joffrey Ballet. The food, atmosphere and service were all outstanding and the wine list, extensive. The risotto was cooked to perfection paired with the most amazing truffles. I look forward to the next time!
We always celebrate our son’s birthday at RPM Italian as it is his favorite restaurant!
Amazing, relaxing atmosphere where you can enjoy your time with friends or family and not feel rushed. The food was amazing and we will definitely go back!
Apps, sides and desserts were very good. 2 of us ordered the Chicken Parm and it was very dry, and very disappointing.
We went there (a group of 8 teachers) and were treated with Travis as our waiter. He was knowledgeable about the menus for both food and drinks. He was patient when we were asking questions and had wonderful suggestions. The food was great. It is ala cart and portion sizes are smaller. That was fine with us!!!!
Delightful menu, great atmosphere and excellent service.
we just loved it. Would recommend. Great staff.
Veal chop was too small for the $42 - also a bit tough and over cooked- need new veal supplier and a larger size steak.
Bucatini was way to spicy tonight.
Appetizers were excellent- beets, burata, meatballs
Drink- black Manhattan was worth the price tag
Perfect and interesting pasta served in perfect proportions. Fresh and favorable appetizers for sharing. Diverse entrees with excellent prices. Don't skip the bombolini for desert! Extensive wine list and good offerings by the glass. It's a popular and bustling place so be prepared for lots of people sharing fun and conversation with music in the background.
Amazing! Love this place! It’s our go to date night venue.
Food and service was great. However, for a 7:30 reservation, it took over 20 minutes to get seated. It would have nice if they offered drinks or a comp appetizer for the inconvenience, but nothing was. If we had showed up 20 minutes late, our table would have been given away.
Have eaten here many times as a carnivore, which caused me to skip over some of the Italian staples on the menu. Came back recently as a vegetarian and we ordered the traditional Bucatini with Eggplant Parm. It was absolutely delicious and I'm so glad we gave it a shot as vegetarians. Simple, well done, and classy place for everyone!
The food beginning to end was delicious. The meatball appetizer had all the right textures, and the the chocolate torte was amazing.
Our service and food was wonderful but overall, the place could use a little bit more energy. Also, it was far too expensive for the type of experience offered. My colleagues and I each had two drinks and an entree and the bill was over $300 (for 3 of us!) Even for downtown Chicago, that’s absurd.
Great vibes and lighting. Unfortunately not at the age where I can drink but I can tell it was a nice place to gather with friends and enjoy an amazing night with spectacular food.
Really quite good. The service was great and attentive and knew what they were talking about, and gave good recommendations for what we were looking for.
Compliments to the chef. Please give me the recipe for the bucatini sauce it’s the most delicious thing in the whole world.
Nothing short of fantastic...again. Every food item was a different, wonderful experience.
Well done. Pricey. But well done.
Got our table quickly once we arrived with our reservation. Host was friendly and our waitress was funny and knowledgeable. Great food overall and drinks hit the spot. Will definitely come back again!
RPM Italian is perfect for your Italian favorites or trying something a little out of the box. They boast an expansive winelist and their shareable appetizers and sides are great for trying new things and having everyone at the table pleased. Also, kind and knowledgeable service.
Our food was delicious. Best spaghetti and meatball I have ever had. The others in my party enjoyed their entrees, as well. Garlic bread always goes with Italian food and it was delicious, but we had to pay extra..$8. Most restaurants serve bread st no charge.
The waitress was very nice, but never offered refills for our drinks. I would go back, if in Chicago again,
A recent dinner at RPM Italian with friends was outstanding. Our server Nicolette was attentive and very knowledgeable about all that we asked. Harley was also a gem. The food was delicious! RPM Italian has become my new favorite! It really is a must try restaurant.
Food was great! Atmosphere great! Service Terrible! I think they only hire Resting B#%*h Face servers
We were visiting Chicago from Glasgow Scotland, we enjoyed everything about this restaurant from the atmosphere and the amazing foood. The staff were amazing and attentive. It was the best meal we had on our visit. Thank you for everything.
I have a soy allergy and they went above and beyond to help me! Service was outstanding and the food as always was amazing!
Love the food here. We got the pasta and gotta try the white truffle since it's the correct season. Would definitely come back again in the future.
Food was incredible and great service
Tiny table for two. Menus covered half the table and for a course selection restaurant, found if difficult. Food was pretty good. Just not the best in the city. Had very high expectations. Wanted a nice evening and ended up in 3 conversations due to how close we sat to the two tables on each side of us. Would not recommend.
Always love coming here!
The only problem was that we didn’t get seated for our reservation for about 30 minutes. Wish we would have known in advance that they were running behind.
Table ready at reservation time. The restaurant was way too busy and the music was too fast paced. My husband and I were seated at a table for two-literally- chair and bench style. It was so close to the party of four, my husband had to wait to sit or he would have bumped the waiter's arm that was pouring wine for table next to us. I have never seen so many employees running around. Our main course was served about 40 minutes after ordering. The waiter did apologize. He was very nice and attentive. We had the special- spinach lasagna. It was ok--a bit too runny and only four standing rolled noodles. We didn't get dessert. This would be considered a one time visit for us, especially since we live out of state.
We always love to bring friends from out of town to RPM and it never fails to impress. David from the wine team was very knowledgeable and Mike from management went out of his way to make sure we had excellent service. Food is consistently excellent, we’ve never had a bad meal, and specials are new and innovative. Can honestly say we’ve never eaten the exact meal twice.
An Anniversary evening with my wife. RPM Italian was fantastic and we will do it again.
We had an excellent dinner here for my Mother's birthday. The sommelier made an excellent wine recommendation, and our waiter was very attentive. Most of us ordered the veal osso bucco (picture shown), which was incredibly rich and delicious. The rest of the group ordered t-bones were also cooked to perfection. We all mentioned several times through out the dinner how we had yet to have one thing that wasn't excellent. Desert was wonderful, and they brought out bomboloni and little gelatos to celebrate my mom's birthday. Will definitely be coming back!
