Italian
Si parla Italiano! Since its doors opened in 1988, Gianni Delisi’s family-run Italian trattoria has flourished as a mainstay on the Chicago restaurant scene. Trattoria Gianni’s menu features a diverse selection of regional Italian dishes, augmented with superb daily specials and a delicious dessert menu. Gianni’s boasts an extensive wine list, a full bar and a great selection of grappas. The restaurant has been awarded 3 stars from the Chicago Tribune, 3 1/2 stars from the Chicago Sun Times and has consistently received excellent ratings from Zagats. Located in the heart of the Lincoln Park theater district — directly across the street from Steppenwolf theater and around the corner from Royal George — Trattoria Gianni’s has long been a destination of theatergoers before and after the shows.

    Excellent food and outdoor seating made for a lovely evening. This was our second time at the restaurant and we recalled how much we enjoyed our first visit. Will be back again.

    Food quality was fair only and the quantity of food for Dinner was relatively small - similar to a Lunch food portion.

    I had high hopes but the food just wasn’t very good. The soups were tasteless and my ravioli tasted like cafeteria food. The ambience was good - a beautiful night on the patio. If the food improves, I’ll come back

    The calamari, veal piccata and the desserts were delicious. The service was very prompt and attentive.

    Service was excellent! My husband had to send his lamb chops back as they were well done and he ordered them medium rare. So we ate our dinner separately, but the restaurant bought my husband a glass of wine! All was good !

    Was really looking forward to dining here, but the food unfortunately lacked all flavor and quality - despite it being very expensive. Our server was kind, and it was nice sitting on the patio, but the food truly seemed as though it had been frozen and microwaved.

    Every time we come to your restaurant, we say we need to come here more often. Had such a delightful pre theatre dinner, food was amazing. The server was remarkable. Initially, Service was a widow delayed, but I think we were there when you first opened up and then everything resolved and was incredible !! can’t wait to come back!

    Despite the food being good and the server excellent, I will not return because of the maitre'd (glasses, mustache, dark hair). He was rude and condescending. I came in alone while my husband parked the car. I had been waiting in line, first person, for several minutes before he even approached and then proceeded to seat the people behind me without a word to me. When I questioned him, he blew me off. Only after my husband came in did he seat us at a very undesirable table in the back despite us having reservations. This misogynistic, rude treatment ruined the evening.
