A must stop deep dish pizza restaurant in the Streeterville section of Chicago (downtown area). Love the sausage but they will make your pizza to order. Great salads as well and staff is wonderful, energetic and attentive. Great value and fun.

Service was EXTREMELY slow even though we didn’t order deep dish which we were told would be 45 minutes longer. Our food was cold and even the homeless rejected it!!!!

Based on previous reviews we had been looking forward to go to Labriola. The Dante Margherita pizza was pretty good, the calamari was edible but a bit soggy. The linguini con frutti di mare looked and tasted like reheated pasta. The pasta was taken off the bill, so that was a bit redeeming.

Labriola was recommended to me by a friend but was a very disappointing experience. In a party of 2, we split the chicken parm and lasagna. The chicken parm was decent, but the lasagna was way too salty and dry. My partner was sick for the entire evening after the meal. The vibe of the restaurant was OK, but given our disastrous experience with the food we won't be back.

We had a nice table outside on the terrace and the service was friendly and good. I ordered a pasta with seafood dish that was well-prepared with homemade pasta; 2 others in our group also ordered pasta dishes that they seemed to like. One ordered a pizza Margarita, which he really enjoyed. The wine list was somewhat limited, especially by the glass, but we were able to find a bottle of Barolo from Piedmont that was reasonably priced and very good. The oration sizes were quite generous and we all felt pleased and satisfied with our diners.

We were visiting from out of town and wanted Italian food close to the river walk and river cruise we would be taking after dinner. Labriolas seems to fit the bill, so we tried it. The food was excellent! The waiter was very good and made great suggestions.

Spoke with the manager John to tell him how good the experience was.

Would highly recommend!

The hosts and wait staff were very accommodating to my party's needs. Also, there was a mishap with our order (they dropped the pizza) but upgraded the size of our pizza at no extra charge to make up for the additional wait. We were quite happy to take home the extra pizza!

Since we discovered Labriola’s perfect pizza we always stop there whenever we are traveling in or near Chicago. Its deep dish but a thinner crunchier crust than usual. And the sausage is great. We also love the Caesar salad. Its huge and very tasty!

This was my second time eating at Labriola. I usually don't like to go to the same restaurants multiple times but after having the garlic knots the first time I had to come back. Labriola has a decent sized menu filled with tasty dishes as well as a nice selection of wine and cocktails. Labriola is now my "go- to" when I am in the mood for Italian food.

LOVE the food, location & HAPPY HOUR! The only snag is we decided to take advantage of an unusually nice afternoon & sit outside - took a while to snag the server's attention. Once this was done, tho, everything was PERFECT. Love Labriola!!

Had a great experience first time we went and took our daughter back only to find out the menu was limited due to a private party. She is a pasta lover, but all that was offered that night was pizza and salads. We don’t get to the city often with her, so we were disappointed. Wish we would have know that before we made our plans.
