What Insiders Are Saying
Bill and Giuliana Rancic force us to like them with excellent Italian food in a trendy setting.
It was a terrific place to enjoy a great meal. Affordable and delicious.
We only eat at nicer restaurants on special occasions, this was for my husbands birthday. The staff was great, the service was fantastic. Some of the items we loved! He loved the sword fish and I have the spaghetti and meatball, it was also good. One thing we thought was odd, they did not offer pepper or cheese. I thought the garlic whipped mashed potatoes were good, however a little bland. Over all it was a great dinner for the 2 of us, he got a nice Happy Birthday surprise.
We sat in the bar area. Our octopus appetizer was excellent. Service as always is outstanding. I’ve been there several times and would return again
We just loved RPM Italian. Despite the fact that we were sitting at the bar and the waiter forgot to put our order (and we ended waiting for so long), overall was an excellent experience! I'll definitely be back.
The food was amazing. We had a fantastic waiter (Kevin). It was truly an wonderful experience. The music was too loud though.
It was a fantastic Easter brunch. We were heading back home after a weekend in Chicago. I introduced my nieces to the restaurant for their first time. They felt very special. My husband and I would visit Chicago at least once a year and ALWAYS go to RPM Italian.
We had a noon reservation which was perfect. Food was excellent.
We were also given a wrapped Panetone as a gift was really sweet and thoughtful.
Everything was delicious! Service was outstanding, she explained the menu perfectly. Would recommend and return if ever in Chicago again!
Simple dishes made great
Came for our anniversary, sat at the bar for dinner. Great service.
Dinner was fantastic! Service was on point.
Excelente menú y servicio
Great food and experience
It was awesome. Dre is an amazing host to those he serves. I loved his energy and genuine love for food and drink. Can’t wait to come back again.
The food was fabulous!
A nice restaurant in terms of ambience, and good in terms of food (nothing outlandish).
both pasta with tomato sauce where extremely spicy, too hot to eat, and there was no warning on the menu nor the waiter advise us about it. Both plate where barely touch and there was no action or reaction by the waiter. the second bottle of wine, a Amarone recomended by the somellier, was not what I would expected, it was the tenuta san antonio, it tasted more like a Valpolicela village.
They even ran down the street for fresh berries. Everything was great!!
Always exquisite and beyond expectations
Great dinner with outstanding service. RPM continues to offer very good food at a fair price. Our waiter, Bobby, was awesome. Always attentive to our needs with great recommendations on items on the menu.
Food and wine list were outstanding - will definitely be back. Only issue was 5 people at a semi-circle booth and small table - zero room on table for drinks and plates, and had to alligator-arm our meals. If food wasn’t so outstanding would’ve rated lower due to this.
We got there early. Very accommodating and sat us right away. First time there- explained the menu. Service was exceptional. Can’t wait to go back.
The service was great! Food was really good! The lobster caprese was very flavorful and everything else yummy.
I am Italian. No real italian food. Bottarga was the worst that I have never eaten and carbonara and cavatelli pasta were a unsuccessful fusion courses. The tables are too much close for the level of the restaurant that they would want to be. In the same way there are not tablecloths or place mats and waiters clean that table with little napkins. All this makes this place too expensive and not comfortable.
Solid dinner, the pasta is always really good and the appetizers and garlic bread were also great! Chicken wasn’t very good but we had gotten it to share after pasta so was happy I didn’t do that as my main.
Service was great and attentive without being too obstructive.
Had reservations at 9:45 pm but still had to wait 30 minutes for a table at 10:15 pm on a Saturday. Then the hostess sat us at a bar where they assured us we wouldn’t be forgotten about and it seemed pretty obvious we were forgotten about. Got our appetizers within 15-20 minutes of ordering but then our simple pasta dishes did not come until almost an hour after ordering. We did not get out until after midnight and we are pretty fast eaters. The food was great but the poor service made the whole experience a huge disappointment.
Our server Kristin was fantastic! Great food. Fun atmosphere!
This will always remain a favorite stop in River North. Always delivers.
Delicious! The best Italian I’ve ever had! I ordered the Eggplant Parmesan and the sauce was so amazing and flavorful. My husband order the lobster ravioli and the prawns, both were amazing. If anything the garlic bread was good, but I was expecting something more based on the online reviews about it. I’ll definitely be back!
Perfection! Can’t wait to go back! The food is the best ever.
Great food and great service
The service, food and ambiance was excellent!
One of the best dining experiences I've ever enjoyed. Service was outstanding!
Delish food & great ambiance! Plus they have a fantastic gluten free menu ☺️
Love it! Everything is amazing, staff is A+and beautiful ambience
Great birthday dinner. Very attentive staff. Incredible food.
This was not my first time to dine at RPM however; it was the first time for several of my guests. We had a 7:30 PM reservation. When we arrived we were asked to wait in the bar because it would be 15 to 20 minutes before we could be seated. We enjoyed a round of cocktails in the bar and 45 minutes later we still had not been seated. To say the least I was a little annoyed when I was told it would be another 5 to 10 minutes. I asked to speak with the manager on duty and explained this was not my first time at his restaurant. In fact, I have dined at this restaurant probably close to 20 times and every experience was fabulous. He assured me he wanted to make the situation right and boy did he! He apologized to me and my guests. I will not go into the other details on exactly what he did for us but needless to say I am a huge, huge fan of this restaurant the manager on duty that night and our server. I will return to RPM every single time I am in Chicago. The food and unbelievable service to make our evening exceptional was outstanding!!! Thank you very much RPM! Well done!
This place is consistently consistent with delivering delicious food. From Appetizers to Dessert food was excellent.
Excellent food though at the end we were kind of indirectly got rushed out ( we had two kids before 8pm) and we couldn’t order coffee or desserts. Bad customer service from our waitress
Hard to get a reservation. Busy- so you feel the rush to leave
