My girlfriends and I were celebrating our friend’s birthday. We ordered drinks and lots of food. We were all impressed by the service, food and drinks. We started off with the Prime Beef Meatballs, Wood Roasted Octopus, and a special that night - Risotto with Fresh Truffles. Like I said, everything was delicious. We especially loved the meatballs and the risotto. For our main course we ordered the Spicy King Crab pasta, Short Rib Bolognese, Bone-in Ribeye, and East Coast Striped Bass. Both pastas were cooked well and the flavors were so rich and delicious. All of us were very impressed with the Bone-in Ribeye. I think that was the highlight of the night. The ribeye was so flavorful and cooked to perfection. We were very impressed. For dessert we had the Bomboloni, Pistachio gelato and RPM Cheesecake. We were so happy with our choices. They were all delicious! It was a great night! Like I said, the service was also great. We loved our server, Kevin. We were also very happy with our drinks: Bellini, Winter Old Fashioned, and It’s Not A Margarita. Can’t complain.

Went to RPM for Valentine's dinner with my husband. We had a great time. Seafood was consistently good, our waiter was attentive, and the ambiance is beautiful. I especially enjoyed my Giuliana Prosecco and the squid ink pasta. The only thing I would improve is that there are too many people standing at the hostess desk so it was a little overwhelming to walk in. But that's just me nitpicking. It was a great evening and I can't complain.

Absolutely perfect meal! The food was incredible, the service was great...the best meal we had all weekend! Andre is truly the best waiter ever! The scallops were the best I have ever had!
And the bolognese sauce gives one I had in Italy a run for its money! We will be back!

Bar service needs to be sharper you are losing lots of money from slow service

The Service was excellent the food was okay, not great. It was extremely loud difficult to have a conversation. Had requested a quiet corner but ended up in area with 5 other tables with open wall to rest of the areas.

Very good service and food. I was less than 3 feet from the woman at the table next to ours. Our tables were less than 12 inches apart. It was also very loud. The close quarters and noise was annoying. Everything else was excellent.

RPM Italian is a great restaurant for special occasions. We had the Ricotta bread...and it was so good. We had several appetizers: pizza, olives, cheese-stuffed peppers, and meatballs. It was all delicious. We also shared several pastas, and hopefully next time I will order from the main menu items (instead of sharing:)

RPM Italian was a major disappointment. The service was average at best. Our waitress did not seem invested in our table after pushing the wine list on us only to be informed that we weren’t having drinks. She also did a poor job of explaining the food. As for the food. Portions were very small and the price was very high. The food quality did not compliment the portioning and price. Overall disappointing early dinner. Would not recommend this restaurant; go else where, get better service and leave more satisfied.

This was our 2nd time to RPM Italian. The first time wasn't good at all. But RPM sent us gift cards to try them again. 5 years later after finding the cards and calling to see if they were still good we gave it another try. This time we had the best experience and our waitress was amazing. She had great recommendations on drinks, dessert and the night life in Chicago. We'll definitely be back😀

By far the best gluten free pasta I've ever had. They make it in-house and tastes like real pasta. The ambiance is pretty trendy and fits the River North neighborhood. It's a bit pricey, but if I'm ever craving Italian food, this is really the only place I'll go.

Alex was outstanding in his presentation and service. Richard (Somm) is incredible! He found the perfect wine to pair with our meal. I couldn't give any better remarks for service and friendliness.
