About

This restaurant is permanently closed. Permanently Closed - From the owners of Coco Pazzo and Coco Pazzo Cafe, Tre Soldi invites you to delight in the flavors of Rome. Tre Soldi is a Roman-style trattoria located on bustling Ohio Street, just off the Magnificent Mile and walking distance to Lurie Children's, Northwestern Hospital and the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago.

Tre Soldi (meaning three coins in Italian) garners inspiration from the Trevi Fountain in Rome, made famous in the 1954 movie Three Coins in the Fountain. Murals of the iconic fountain and the rooftops of Rome bring a warm ambiance to the casual, contemporary atmosphere. The menu features classic house-made pastas, pizza as well as daily fish and meat specials. An emphasis is given to local farmers' offerings. The full bar features several Italian craft beers, more that 20 wines by the glass or quartino, and a 100 bottle wine list. Outdoor seating opens in late July.

Some of the best pasta I've ever had. Portions are small though so don't be shy about ordering appetizers!

Food was modest at best, and service was poor, to say the least. Waiter didn't make first appearance until 15 minutes after we had been seated, and then never returned after taking our order to check how the entrees turned out. Disappointing experience all around. There are hundreds of better Italian restaurants in the city that are more deserving of your time and money.

Outstanding food, good service and a good value. (It is not cheap but worth every penny.) We were there on the last night before closing for renovations which will address our one and only concern, which is noise. It is very hard to have a conversation, but the management reassures us that this will be taken care of. We can't wait to go back the minute they reopen!

This is the second time I have dined at this restaurant in one week. The selections are varied and interesting, but I always choose the same items: barbabietole and pasta arrabiata. These dishes are prepared well, they are tasty and the presentation is excellent. My companion had Pasta fagioli soup and raved about it. We will definitely be back, and maybe I'll try something different!

Delicious food. Scallops and risotto were both incredible. Waiter was so accommodating to our family. Our kids loved the calamari and pizza, although really it's probably better for families with slightly older children as the noise level is low, and it's a really nice restaurant. We really enjoyed it.

Very attentive but not overbearing service! Food was delicious! Wonderful ambiance... Our children (ages 19, 16, 12 and 12) enjoyed our adult evening out with them! The location was very easy to get to from Michigan Ave. Easy walk from our hotel only a few blocks away. I would strongly recommend for a date night or family dinner!

My husband had the special which was trout on fingerling potatoes with arugula on top. I had the salmon on their regular menu which came with artichokes, potatoes and green salsa drizzle. Both were very tasty with many flavors playing well together. Atmosphere was warm and comfortable.

We have eaten here several times and will go back again. The food is consistently excellent, especially for the price. The only downside is that the same value does not carry over to the wine list. The atmosphere is fun and lively, though they will soon remodel so check reviews after they reopen mid-January.

Took forever for them to have my table ready, an 8pm reservation turned into a 8:35pm seating. The service was a bit slow and the waiter seemed to be in a rush to see other tables. Although, the food was very good and the ambiance matched it well. Overall, I found it to be a good place for a date for the price, but faulty in some restaurant fundamentals.

Tre Soldi was bustling on Friday night. I thoroughly enjoyed the fried calamari appetizer and LOVED the Cacio e Pepe. The pasta was cooked to perfection and the sauce was delicious! Tasted exactly the same as when I had the dish in Italy! Atmosphere was energetic and fun, service was competent.

I made the reservation for 7:00pm, the time on my confirmation email, but when I got there, they had my reservation at 9:00pm. That was concerning, but they moved things around to get us a table without waiting.

The food was excellent. I would recommend it.

Outstanding casual place with excellent food and good service. On our most recent visit we shared two of the huge bruschettas, one with tomatoes and the other with grilled shrimp. Both were nicely prepared and presented, but one would probably have been enough for two people to share as an appetizer. The pastas are uniformly al dente and well-sauced. The cacio e pepe is a standout, with a perfect balance of pasta, sauce, cheese and pepper. We also shared a very large serving of veal scallopini, which was beautifully prepared with three medallions of veal, a delicious mushroom and spinach sauce, with a few slices of potatoes. One of the medallions was a little tougher than the other two, but the dish was a great success anyway. Some nice wines by the glass at reasonable prices. Highly recommended.

Food better than expected for a fairly casual neighborhood restaurant; the space is pleasant with tables not too close together, staff very nice if not sommelier-level knowledgable. Delicious arancini, excellent ricotta (not potato) gnocchi, very interesting zucchini dish is the lightest 'pasta' entree ever, only the fritatta was average.

Tre Soldi is simply the BEST restaurant in Chicago! Every dish was not only beautifully presented, but OUTSTANDING. A true gem! We began with the artichoke appetizer and the mussels followed by the beet salad and a small plate of the ravioli, Veal Marsala and Halibut special. Each dish brought back memories of our time spent in Italy. We could tell that every dish was prepared with the freshest ingredients.
