My first time at Rpm Italian. I appreciate them reading the open table notes . It’s very pricey and a good place for if you want to be wined and dined . Our server was nice and patient. We did not like the chocolate torte at all . One bite and I was done . It had alarm weird crust in the middle and chocolate flavor was too strong or not enough, they try to make it sound gold by putting 14 karat gold edible paper but not will not get that again . I will not order the peach Bellini as well bc of my low alcohol intolerance, they added more peach purée but it wasn’t enough I guess I should just not order any alcohol and they don’t offer frozen drinks so that’s ok I don’t think I can afford to come back but it was good to just try it there . The black guy who might be an employee bc we saw him standing with the girls at the check in was sitting behind my friend keep hitting her with his arm , it was annoying. He clearly was drunk and I felt bad fo his date . I guess that’s not anything to review but it was weird bc he was wearing a bright red jacket and it wasn’t dressy so he was the only one up in the joint . If you don’t care to waste your money than you come here.

The lobster fra Diavola was amazing! As well as the squid ink spicy crab. Their prime meatballs were fabulous too. The garlic breads flavor was spot on!

The food was delicious. We had the branzino, blue cheese topped mashed potatoes, shaved brussel sprouts, and truffled garlic bread...yum to everything! Of course, we also shared a dessert.

Fun overall! Our reservation was for 9, we were seated after 930. Not a huge deal as we were able to get a seat at the bar. Louder and more trendy than I was expecting, with people wearing everything from cocktail dresses to jeans/t-shirts. Food was great, servers seemed to know the menu well, and were very attentive.

Go for the appetizers and dessert, but skip the pasta. This is the second time I've been disappointed by their pasta. We ordered the short rib pappardelle and the pasta carbonara and both were underwhelming. The appetizers we had, San Daniele prosciutto and zucchini fritti were delicious, as were the desserts. We had the hazelnut tartufo and bomboloni. We also ordered the Chicken Parmesan which was good, but you can get good chicken parm anywhere. The wine was good but expensive. My recommendation would be to fill up on appetizers or just stop by here for dessert. For the price, the pastas are not worth it. 3/5 stars.

We took a trip to Chicago with our family (kids ages 5 and 7) and I’ve been wanting to eat at RPM for a while. It was a great experience from start to finish. Our waitress was outstanding and the food was incredible. I would highly recommend. They do not have a kids menu but are very accommodating and can make certain dishes kid friendly. We wanted to try a few different things so we ordered all adult entrees. I feel like their prices are very good too. I would say that it would be difficult to have very small children go there. It’s very tight seating between tables. But for us it was perfect.

An up and down evening. Terrible wait (1 hour) for a booth in the bar area which I had requested and had been confirmed when I called ahead to reconfirm. No particular efforts were made to expedite the situation and it was only after repeated complaints that finally someone stepped up and found us a table - not the kind I had requested but I was about to leave at that point and had already called and booked a table at Nico where I’m a regular and am always well treated.
I was still extremely frustrated with the experience as I had out of town guests I wanted to impress, and so I asked to speak to the manager at which point I was connected to Christian. He went out of his way to make things right and we were comped a few dishes and a fine bottle of wine. So the evening ended on a positive note but way too much drama...

We’ve been coming to town the last five years for the Marathon and each year we choose somewhere different to celebrate this spectacular occasion. We were finally able to make it in after all these trips and it did not disappoint. From the service to the ambiance to the food- wow!! We will most definitely return!!

The staff was robotic and aloof. Not warm or welcoming. No greeting when checking in with host stand. Just started at and then shown table. Sloooow service. When food was brought to table, or we asked a question we couldn’t hear responses. For the record, we mid 30s without hearing problems. The music was just too loud. Food was ok. Nothing I would return for with the service received.

Overall fantastic. I have been here twice and tried a large portion of the menu. Everything is delicious. Even items that I do not typically care for, such as meatballs, are delicious at RPM. Best Italian food in Chicago.

Very delicious food! Cocktails were delicious as well. Only issue was our server took a very long time to get back to us with our check. He didn’t come to the table for about 30 mins after we had finished our food. He did thank us for our patience but it would’ve been nice if he noticed we were finished earlier. Otherwise, would definitely come back for a special occasion! Great atmosphere.

Food was delicious. Ordered meatballs as an appetizer and did not receive them until we were two bites away from finishing our whole meal. No apology and were also on the bill. When they did eventually come, they were delivered to the table next to us. On the bright side I walked out of the RR with a long string of TP on my shoe and a kind employee stepped on it to save me from a V embarrassing moment. Told the server we did not want dessert, but his head was in the clouds and brought us over dessert menus (I digress). Finally I thought the Rancic’s would be sharing a glass of her Prosecco with us and that did not happen. Regardless Id still like to stage a return at some point in the future. XOXO
