Service and food were great. My only criticism is that we had to wait well beyond our reserved time, which occurred on our last visit here. Honestly, the restaurant needs to get a handle on this.

Wonderful experience!!! The meatball appetizer and bucatini were the best we’ve had. The cake with gold flakes was delicious and so huge that we took 2/3rds home and had another dessert from it later! So delicious and great service.

Squid ink spaghetti with crab was okay, but the sauce was a bit thin and watery so much so that all the sauce was on the bottom of the pan and not adherent to the pasta making eating the pasta an immersive experience as I ended up wearing the splashes of red tinged pasta water/sauce. Chunks of crab could have been more robust so as to not get lost in the dish. Plus, the crab could have been cleaned better as my preparation had a fair amount of endoskeleton which was hard and inedible. Bill’s chocolate Budino was most excellent. Appetizers (Wagyu carpaccio and prosciutto) were excellent as well.

One of the best dinners I’ve ever had. Everything was outstanding from the moment we walked through the door till our meal was finished. The food was amazing the service outstanding the atmosphere absolutely beautiful we were a group of six celebrating a birthday and we were amazed at the noise level in a packed restaurant was as low as it was. We were all able to hear each other easily. A truly remarkable evening

The service at RPM Italian is outstanding, always. The drinks and the food are sooo yum. The noodles were a bit undercooked/hard, but everything else I’ve had here has been beyond amazing. Def in my top five!

This is the most NYC evocative place in Chicago. Creative food, perfect service, and a vibe that's electric without being overwhelming. We went on a cold Wednesday night and we left at around 8:30, there were at least 50 people in the waiting area It's a great experience

Very loud speakers for a Monday night. Had a hard time hearing our guests who we treated for dinner. Most likely wouldn’t recommend this restaurant cuz of that.

My family and I love RPM Italian. The amount of food you get for the money is fair and the quality of the food is top notch. I recommend their old fashioned it is amazing. Also their 600 day prosciutto is a favorite of ours. You should make a reservation soon because they are always packed.

What a fabulous experience. Kind and very considerate service, vegan choices, fresh made pasta, the best fried artichokes, the best steak, and the pasta Bolognese is unparalleled! Great wine list by the bottle and glass.

Our server was attentive but not hovering and the food was divine! The vibe was a little scene-y, but I’ll take it for another bowl of that truffle risotto!

A great birthday celebration! We asked for consideration due to handicaps and that was met. Maybe it will become our tradition to celebrate b'days there. Like RPM Steak, but not as expensive.
