The mussels and clams in my dish had a fishy taste. They were not fresh

A great place for an intimate-small group for dinner. The food was delicious and cocktails at the bar beforehand were tasty. Ambiance of the patio seating is beautiful on a summer night, it allows you to relax after a plate of pasta with a glass of wine. We did wish our server was more attentive, never came over to check on our food, and we had different people helping us throughout, not one.

Amazing place. The food was outstanding! Madonna, that stuffed pork chop was perfection. Great cocktails and tiramisu. Perfect for pre-Lyric Opera dinner.

The best of the best. Been going here for 5 years since the day I moved to Chicago. Ubaldo at the bar is second to none. The entire staff is the best - and the food has no match.

Food was great! Fun cocktails. Atmosphere was charming, the volume was perfect, we could still hear each other.

Our waiter went out of his way to serve the beet salad and then divide it between our two plates at the table.

Very good experience, we’d go there again.

The atmosphere and service at this restaurant were both appealing and sensitive. However, the crab in my risotto, which was the daily special, was beyond its prime for serving. Most likely other dishes are fresher.

It was difficult to choose dinner, as everything looked delicious! When we did get to the food, it did not disappoint. The dinner was fantastic. The service was wonderful, and in all, this was an evening which we will long remember.
This is definitely on our “go to” list of great Chicago restaurants.

Although we had a reservation we had to wait quite a while for our table, about a half an hour. While that was not so bad, we also had to wait quite a while for the bartenders to even acknowledge us although the bar area was quite empty. The High Point and only good point of service was we were brought to a table that was right next to the kitchen which would have felt we were on a grand highway with the waiters rushing back-and-forth. I asked for a new table and the manager kindly gave us one that was better. The food was ok, good not great And the octopus dish was very oily and I barely ate any of it. I should have sent it back. But the service was so slow and it seems our waiter disappeared. We ordered a dessert and it took well over a half an hour to get to us after our plates were cleared away but no one came back to see if we would like additional drinks, which we would have. We sat there for so long that I was seriously thinking we could just get up and walk out and no one would even notice. Not that I would ever dine and dash but while I had a great time with the people I was with I would not ever go back to this restaurant.

I was told my table was ready then told it had been given to another guest. I waited nearly 50 minutes to get seated. No one was particularly interested .

NBA All-Star weekend, and the place was packed. Unfortunately, we were seated by the door, which was inexplicably kept open for half the meal, allowing an icy draft in every time a new customer came in. Pasta was definitely very fresh, but I was underwhelmed by both the minestrone soup and the fact that $22 bought 8 ravioli.

Very disappointed in the service, the wrong appetizer was brought to our table, the server was hovering over my father's shoulder acting very pressed to get his wine order taken. My father's meal was missing ingredients that were stated in the menu, his gnocchi was bland and there was too much butter swimming at the bottom of his dish. My meal was the duck ragu parpadelle, which the pasta was way undercooked and hard, the server never offered cheese or anything to go over the pasta and I found a duck bone the size of my pinky buried in the pasta. Our server also never asked how anything was, food was brought out, taken away and our check was delivered. VERY disappointing. My dad is visiting from out of town and always heard good things about Nonnina, our experience was less than fulfilling.
