3 time and was not happy with the dinner .
We’ve been before but it was really off tonight , the ventilation system was not working we smelled everything they were cooking or frying - not in a good way .
We ordered the ricotta and toast, Fried zucchini, Rigatoni but it had too much Rosemary, and veal chop which was the most disappointing and it was so chewy.
For the price and lack of ambience we probably will not be back
We had a reservation at 9:00, we checked in at 8:35 and didn’t get seated until 10. The restaurant was very inefficient at seating. We will never be back. Awful experience.
Loved everything about it! Would definitely go back.
Our waiter was awesome. Excellent meal. And wine.
We were celebrating our birthdays a month early. Really enjoyed watching the Ransics reality show watching the restaurant open so very excited to go there. Loved the decor and formal attire of the wait staff. Food was excellent.
The music got decidedly more loud and disco as we moved through dinner to dessert. That’s the only thing I would adjust. It was hard to maintain a level of quiet dinner conversation.
But otherwise loved it. A bonus was seeing the Chicago Fire Department across the street as we love that show too. Lol.
Will definitely come back on our next visit to your beautiful city.
We were seated at an oversized table. The table was much too big for our party of five. Put a damper on the whole evening. Food: Server brought wrong dish to one of us. Tortellini was beyond raw.
Great Service and food. Took my family for my wife’s birthday. We all loved it.
Outstanding! Everything...service, cocktails, artichokes, beet salad, pasta, egg plant.
The food was absolutely delicious and the service was fantastic. Atmosphere was lively but not too loud at all.
Incredible meatballs and service was excellent
Great wine steward!
Celebrated our anniversary dinner at RPM Italian. We keep coming back for all our special occasions. The attention to details to the food or your customers sets the standard. Once again, RPM made our night perfect!!
I went to RPM to celebrate my significant other's birthday and it was absolutely divine. The hostess was excellent and they made us feel very special. The Maine Lobster Ravioli was excellent and my significant other was made to feel special.
We love RPM Italian and make it a regular stop on our dining circuit. Food, drinks and service are always top notch!
Most important, we have come to consider some team members family. And there’s nothing more comforting than to have dinner with family! Jackie rocks as a server!
We enjoyed the food and the service was excellent
We had such a nice time having dinner here. I thought making a reservation at 4:30 on a Sunday, because the restaurant was booked later than that, would be just an ok experience. It was not. We were sat at a beautiful table in the middle of the restaurant, overlooking the bar and other tables. The service was so attentive and kind. The staff helped us choose a bunch of really delicious things when we could not make up our minds. The Ricotta and Warm Ciabatta, the Artichokes, a delicious salad, Brussels Sprouts, Carbonara, Eggplant Parm, Steak and even a special pasta with pesto sauce (because one of us was craving basil) was made special to order. We had everything we needed, when we needed it and really had a lovely time. Desserts were over the top good and our cocktails were great. Most of all it was the service though, that made for a really special night with my family.
This was the first visit to some in our party at RPM Italian. It was a truly great experience - great food, tasty spirits and extremely attentive service.
Our waiter James was fantastic!
Very noisy! Could not carry on conversation among three people. Have been there several times and this was worst ever! Service level has also fallen off but food is great. Have been there about once every month or so for couple of years. Do not plan to go back anytime soon.
We came to celebrate our anniversary. The food was delicious, our waiter was amazing! We enjoyed our night and will definitely come back when we're in the area again!
Food is just alright for this type of place. The sweet corn pasta with summer truffles was delicious, but small portion. Really enjoyed the spicy crab pasta as well.
The Roman artichokes were pretty average and the meatball appetizer was surprisingly not that good. Dense meatball, not much flavor. Looked pretty though.
The decor and service was really good...the food tasted OK, ravioli was cold...expensive for Italian tapas.
Each time we're in Chicago, we have several restaurants that we visit. RPM Italian is among them. The food and service are consistently exceptional.
My wife had wanted to go to RPM Italian for a while, and I finally got around to making a reservation for four. We were not disappointed. We arrived early and sat at the bar for a drink, and admired the decor. The bartender, talked about the drink menu and expertly made our drinks. We were then taken to our table. The waiter, was very knowledgeable on the food and answered all our questions, when my wife said that she was a little cold, the waiter and a manager brought a small blanket for her to wrap around her shoulders. The food was spectacular, we had 3 different appetizers and then lobster meal, scallops, and this corn ravioli. All were delicious and we were able to try each. Definitely a recommend. Thanks RPM!
Love this place, our favorite Italian in Chicago! Reasonable prices, amazing services, and just the right proportion. Never had one dish there I didn’t love. Highly commended!
Excellent service and ambiance, however, the food was nothing to write home about.
Always a great experience. The food is outstanding and is served quickly. The service is second to none: love both Bobby and James. Great servers! Recommend for a night out or romantic celebration.
Amazing dining experience
Great restaurant with best service and food. Highly recommend.
Friends came from out of town. They absolutely loved the food as we did. We could not have asked for a better meal. We love RPM Italian and don’t hesitate to recommend this restaurant. It’s pricey but worth the splurge. It was noisy and hard to hear so try to sit on the side out of the mainstream.
We were four ladies celebrating a Special occasion. Our experience from the bar tender, to the hostess, to the waiter was less then friendly. The staff were borderline rude, pretentious and we felt rushed our entire experience. Not what we would have expected with a 400.00 bill plus tip. Disappointed as the food as quite good.
Delicious dinner. Excellent service too. It is a loud restaurant so just be aware.
Fun place to go one time. Portion size is tiny all 4 of us were starving after. Good to check out would never go again.
Server recommendations were stellar. Excellent pace for service and enjoyment of dining experience. Planning next visit ASAP.
I have now eaten twice at this restaurant and the food was excellent on both occasions.
Food was awful
Wonderful service, and the food is amazing! Second time I have been here and it is consistent on both fronts. My experience with RPM Steak wasn’t the same, this place is a gem!!
Ignore this if you like ear splitting noise in a restaurant. The food and service were five star, so it is unfortunate that they play the music so loud. I thought I was trapped inside a bass drum.
