Our meals were some of the worst meals we have ever had. The server was great, the restaurant was lovely and the birthday treat that they prepared for me was wonderful, but our entrees were such a disappointment. We collectively agreed that we will not return.

We were celebrating a graduation on a Sunday PM. We appreciate the host, and our serving team led by Dre all recognizing the event as we included it in our Open Table Reservation..Plus added in a complementary dessert with a candle--Nice touch! We all enjoyed our main courses- Veal chop, Steak Grigliata, and Home made Cavetelli along with 3 sides. We appreciated Dre's great service and
knowledge of the menu as well as attention to our specific needs. RPM-Italian and even more so
RPM-Steak are defiinitely special occasion spots!

I’ve been wanting to go here for the longest and it turned out to be a huge disappointment. The food was underwhelming and pricy. The pasta portion sizes are really too small to be charged the amount they were-they were more like appetizers. The service was very good. I will not be returning and I wouldn’t recommend any of my friends/family to try it out.

We went for an anniversary & were sat at a table in a very crowded section of the restaurant. It wasn't very romantic, as we were sitting uncomfortably close to the people next to us & could overhear their conversations. I'd recommend requesting a booth or table in the bar. It was also kind of dark, which didn't bother us at all, but there were people around us shining flashlights from their phones in our eyes trying to read the menu.

The food was very good, but overpriced for the ambience of the restaurant. I would have had a better experience at a different table.

Surprisingly excellent food, much more than your traditional trendy hot spot.
The design a bit mundane but the kitchen more than makes up for it.
Well staffed, the service was efficient.
A bit pricey but worth a visit for a special occasion.

The food was delicious and service was exceptional! We started with the fried olives and ricotta with bread, both very tasty. Then we had the Caesar salad and the Brussels salad, again both very tasty but the ceasar was our favorite, especially with the croutons. Then for pasta we had the bucatini and the prime rib pasta, which were to die for! Will be back next time we visit Chicago.

We went there (a group of 8 teachers) and were treated with Travis as our waiter. He was knowledgeable about the menus for both food and drinks. He was patient when we were asking questions and had wonderful suggestions. The food was great. It is ala cart and portion sizes are smaller. That was fine with us!!!!

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
