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!

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

Pasta dishes, prawns and brussel sprouts were all amazing. Very good service and very accommodating and knowledgeable with allergy restrictions. Definitely recommend RPM Italian.

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.

While the food and environment were good, you can definitely get better deals elsewhere in the city. It isn’t worth the cost.

Went to celebrate my friend's birthday. Our table was in an odd location, seemingly in the middle of a walk-way, but everything else was superb.

It was a great experience. Delicious pizza , perfect steak tartar, real italian beef carpaccio. Service was very good and friendly. The only thing I didnt like was chicken. It was a mistake to choose chicken in an italian restaurant.
Prosecco was smooth and fruity.
I saw deserts serving but I couldnt try because I was full. You should try them.
They served one scoop ice cream at the end.Yummy!
You should make reservation before you go. You could wait long time without reservations.
