What Insiders Are Saying
Bill and Giuliana Rancic force us to like them with excellent Italian food in a trendy setting.
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.
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!
Family Christmas outing. What can I say, the prosciutto, the fried olives, provolone stuffed peppers, and rosemary focaccia were all excellent starters! Our group entrees included veal Osso Bucco, bucatini, grilled prawns, salmon, short rib pappardelle, and the steak grigliata! All were very good! Also tried the sweet potato gnocchi, which were a bit bland. Including dessert, drinks, coffee and cappuccino, the overall meal, atmosphere and service were excellent!
We celebrated an anniversary and had a great experience. We were seated in a cozy booth and had attentive service without being over the top. The food was exceptional and we were happy from beginning to end. Looking forward to our next visit!
Loved it. Brought the adults in our family for a start to the Christmas season. Couldn’t have picked a better place. Atmosphere, service and food was perfect.
For some reason the open table reservation was changed from 7:30 to 9:30 and the attendants at desk implied that I didn’t make reservation correctly because I did it on line - thankfully I had the email that confirmed my reservation- but we still had to wait and then they seated us in the bar - will not go there again- overpriced and good was just ok
Every time we make reservations at RPM Italian, no matter what time you make your reservation for, you will always be told they are running behind and it’s a 45 minute additional wait. This is just a tactic of management and it’s not fair to repeatedly do this to customers. This has happened to us 6 times now, we will not be returning. The food is excellent and it’s so sad they they play this game
I was more than impressed and told several friends that I could not find one single tiny little negative thing to say. Greeting, seating, drinks, appetizers, entrees, dessert, service, taste, everything was absolutely superb!
Good atmosphere... Seating backed up due to RSNA, Mgr was nice & compd entire bill.
Food was Great !!!
RPM Italian never disappoints! The food is great, it tastes fresh and homemade, true to the best of the best when it comes to Italian cuisine. Tastes like grandma's recipes. Excellent wine list and the sommelier did a great job to recommend the perfect bottle based on preference and price point. The service is professional and friendly. Mention it is your birthday for a lovely taste of gelato.
Outstanding food and service. Very energetic pace when we arrived but the experience and value is extremely high.
In addition to extraordinary service and food, the waiter was exceptionally accommodating and helpful with our vegetarian guest. She enjoyed everything without worry or made to feel uncomfortable asking about dietary restrictions. Will go back without hesitation!
Excellent! Great food and Service!
