First time and wanted to try. Great menu options. I chose the Margarita pizza and salad. Neapolitan style pizza was excellent! Good ambience. Not rushed. I’ll go back !
I wasn’t a fan of the order @ the counter and wait for the food to be delivered.
Was looking for more of a traditional ordering from a server type experience since I was on a date.
It was nice not having to leave a large tip on top of the price of food & drinks but having to go stand in line to order a salad, then a pizza & then dessert was not desirable.
Food was ok. Obviously the pizza crust, pretzel bun & desserts were delicious considering the bakery element.
Always love trying new things: Salmon w asparagus & rice. Super tasty. Thanks for another great experience.
I was extremely disappointed with the handling of my recent visit to La Briola! Granted it was an extra points night and the place was crowded but the staffs handling of the situation was horrible. Being greeted by a long line wasn’t unexpected, but I had a reservation from Open Table. There were only 2 people taking orders and one left after he took an order! Now we were down to one person, they called someone from in back to take orders. When we got to the register and were placing our order we were told they were out of all the specials for the evening, the roasted chicken, the salmon and several other options! This was only a little after 6! The register operator had no idea how the points were being credited and when asked who we saw about our reservation he looked at me blankly and asked “what reservation?” I explained that we had a reservation from Open Table for 6 at 6:15 he said he’d have to ask a manager. He never asked my name and then wanted to know if we were all there and what we wanted to eat! I had just finished placing my order, each one of us had ordered individually so we had the correct order! Very unprofessional and a little disappointing. I am at La Briola on a regular basis, have been going to the restaurant since it open in 2008, and the quality of the food and service is usually excellent, have even been to other events where everything was handled smoothly but this last encounter was anything but good.
I am used to going to the location on Michigan Ave. Definitely very different atmosphere and service. This location is more self-serve (think Panera). Wasn’t anticipating but the food was still delicious. Ordered the Chicken Milanese Caesar Salad. It’s was very tasty and fulfilling. I recommend this location if you want something quick and tasty.
Good place for breakfast. Low key
I have eaten at Labriola many times. The food is delicious!
Fun place casual wide variety of menu choices
Cafe service was excellent. The guy taking my order was very friendly, I appreciated being signed up for the rewards program. The bus boys were also very friendly and were great at helping keep our table clean as we went through our many dishes. Unfortunately the girl on the bakery side wasn’t in a very good mood and it showed. With so many options, we had a few questions before making our selections and she was obviously very annoyed. The food was very good, the desserts were just ok and so we thought overpriced. I would still recommend and return.
We LOVE Labriola! Everything about it is perfect! We wish they'd open one in the Woodfield area. PLEASE open one near Woodfield!!!!!
This is a stand in line restaurant, which I knew. Not sure what point of reservation was.
Soup had 1 shrimp. Pizza slice was cold. Napoleon pizza was swimming in grease. Fries were undercooked and cold. Beer took 20 minutes to bring out.
I really liked the place and the food but the noise level was high other then that I will visit again. My friend and I stayed 5 hrs fellowshipping. The gelato though a bit expensive was delicious.
I had Chicken Parmesan for my dinner and I have to say it was delicious.
The employees were friendly and constantly checking in on our table, was great to see the employees able to communicate with my family in Spanish making communication easy. The food was excellent, everyone loved there dishes. Would go back again soon.
Delicious food, very casual atmosphere, pricey, worth it
Casual atmosphere and great selection of food
I always like the food but i booked on open table as a reservation but that was not the case. It was order at the counter and find your own seating so wondering why you are set up with reservations. Was told the kitchen was behind by 30 minutes since it was busy for Father’s Day but food came 50 minutes after ordering.
Food was great! All the food came out at different times, but it was Fathers Day!
Excellent coffee and you can't go wrong with the Belgian Sugar Cookie Crepes! Wow, they are so unique and surprising. Labriola Cafe-Oak Brook has a casual ambiance where you order at the counter and the food is delivered to the table, but the food quality is excellent. The staff is attentive and friendly and the location is very clean. I highly recommend Labriola Cafe Oak Brook!
This was my first visit. I thought it was a sit down restaurant but it's a "place your order and they bring it to your table" place. Which is fine, I just didn't expect it. Servers were great. It was Saturday morning and they had a bunch of catering orders going out that look really tasty. I would return but I would like to visit the bakery side as well.
Had breakfast for the first time. It was really good.
Excellent menu choices, delicious food. Casual dining with an incredible bakery.
The food was good, I'm glad I tried the restaurant but I'm not sure I would drive to Oak Brook to return.
We loved it
Overall, good experience. Was somewhat disappointed and surprised that we had to place our orders at the counter. I don't believe the listing on Labriola mentioned that full wait service is not available. However, great food and we will return to Labriola in the future.
Good for somewhere quick and casual between errands or a quick bite after work.
I have no idea why making a reservation is even a thing. Customers order at the counter and the photo is delivered to your table like Panera or Corner Bakery. Except the prices are quite a bit higher here. The food was tasty, but quite expensive. For four people we spent nearly sixty dollars. Seems high for what we got. The dining area is very worn, and desperately needs updating. Our table was wobbly, and very ragged looking. don’t know that I’ll be rushing back anytime soon.
Not really a restaurant, but a carry out with tables. Made a reservation on Open Table. When arrived the order taker at the front counter, like McDonalds, said they didn't take reservations and we should seat ourselves after ordering/paying and they would bring the food. Food was below average and the place was loud, like a zoo. What a disappointment. Will never recommend and suggest Open Table remove them from their Open Table Reservation Program as they don't even know what it is or use it. Geez. $93 for a small pizza, two salads, a bowl of plain pasta, 2 cokes and 2 beers. Totally aggravated and will pass the word.
Love the fries, margarita pizza, pistachio gelato
The food was very good and the service was quick and efficient. However, it was difficult to find a table because many of them were not cleaned off and still had food on them from the previous customers. In the section that we ended up sitting in, there was an unpleasant odor that we think came from the wood (it was not present in other parts of the restaurant that we noticed on our way out.) It appeared that the restaurant just needed a good cleaning.
The food was wonderful as always. Everyone finished their meals. I tried the breakfast food for the first time. Outstanding. Their soup is the best around.
Great place ... the pizza is one if the best in the Chicago area.
Try the pan pizza , with the Barretta cheese or the sausage one.
Great crust with a little burnt cheese around the crust !
