    The maitre d gave you that I’m very important and more important than my patrons. Place was empty and he sat us at the worst table in the the place next to the prep station of plates and water even thought we had a reservation. We asked to be moved and after a long discussion they moved us twice. Once at our request and the other at theirs because they put us at the wrong table. I was expecting the place to get crowded and it never did. Without that experience I would have given it 5 stars because the waitress was awesome, my water and wine glass was never empty and the food was fantastic.

    We hadn’t been back since October 2020 due to Covid. We were thrilled to be there again. The Fiori di Zucca stuffed with ricotta. were delicious! The arugula & artichoke salad as good as we remembered it. My entree, Melanzane alla Parmigiana was a new item on the menu (to me) & it was amazing! The presentation was creative & made me want to taste it immediately!! And the best of all was the Fondente di Ciccolato which was as good as it’s always been. We missed Sergio though!! ❤️❤️

    One of our favorites among Chicago's best restaurants. Outstanding quality but not as expensive as the more expensive among the best restaurants. So convenient for parking. Very good valet service. We have made many return visits for special occasions.

    One of my favorites of all time. I love the service, the ambiance, and the food is lovely. Given that there was a show in town at the Merchandise Mart they did a miraculous job of serving under very busy environment. If you have never dined at Coco Pazzo it is an absolute must and iconic fixture in the city. I alway try to get there a at least a couple times a year when I travel to Chicago.

    I took my best friend for her birthday and the food was fresh, delicious and very flavorful. We got the octopus as an appetizer and it was so tender and delicious. I got the squid ink pasta with seafood and the pasta was so fresh. My friend ordered the rigatoni and oh my was it flavorful!! Highly recommend for some great and authentic Italian food. The service was impeccable and the ambiance was great. You will not be disappointed!!

    From start to finish everything exceeded my expectations. Ambiance was intimate with white linnen tablcloths and red brick walls softend by floor to ceiling black velvet curtains hung throughout. Side walls were strategically opened to the outdoors for fresh air circulation and nighlife ambiance. Table next to ours had tableside Caesar salad preparation giving us the feeling we were dining with locals who were familiar (as this wasn't on the menu and when we asked waitress, she said it is usually not offered on Saturdays, but they would be happy to do it because they weren't overly busy). The preparation was done beautifully by a gentleman in a suit who answered our questions and allowed us to photograph. The recipe expressed the owners preferences and it was fabulous. When choosing our bottle of wine our waitress, Jennifer offered us a sommelier to help us and this was a very unique experience that we enjoyed and brought us to a bottle of wine that everyone found to be a very suitable accompaniament to our dinners. We also learned about the grape profiles from the various regions. Jennifer was professional, attentive and thorough, while being 100% authentic (beautiful Italian) and totally personable. She made my husband feel completely safe with his food sensitivities and dutifully checked with the chef on any items she was unsure of. Everyone enjoyed their food, from the chefs preparation of risotto, to the the veal and pasta dishes they were all exquisite. We did not save room for dessert, but to our surprise, Jennifer remembered we were celebrating my birthday and brought out a beautiful tray of miniature italian delectibles with a candle which was delightfully reveived. I would add this to the list of favorite restarants to visit in Chicago when celebrating a special occasion. We will definitely return 🇮🇹❤️

    This is a gem of a restaurant tucked away in a neighborhood we would never have found without a recommendation from a colleague. It has a lovely, old wood decor with a lot of space and excellent service. We both had the house salad and the pasta special (shrimp and scallops with a pesto sauce) that was absolutely delicious. The most amazing part was how Inexpensive this restaurant is - especially in Chicago. We will be back.

    We have been going to Coco Pazzo for our anniversary for the last five years. It never disappoints! The food is amazing—we always share an appetizer and the risotto (which is the best of any we’ve had) and then get our own entree. The waiter was very knowledgeable and helped us with our wine selection. We’re from Michigan but have to go to Coco Pazzo every year!

    We were a party of 14 and there was no problem giving us one long table. The wait staff was great from drinks to desserts. Giving suggestions on appetizers and how many to order for the table. Everyone’s food came out at the same time and from the fish to the past everyone enjoyed it.

    Chose the restaurant because it seemed to have the charm of a traditional Italian restaurant with professional waiters. It met those expectations. The food however was just above average. Three of us went. None of us thought the food was exceptional. I had veal which is my barometer of how good an Italian restaurant is. It was an ok cut of veal but drenched in a heavy sauce. Service was excellent. Ambience was great. Food was average. I would go again but only if I had another reason to do so, e.g. friends who wanted to go. My recommendation is lukewarm.

    Air conditioning wasn’t working!! Restaurant was about 80 degrees and stuffy. Understaffed! Our waiter knocked into our friends chair and never apologized. Service was slow and not friendly. I feel that a manager could have visited every table and apologize for the heat — nothing. They didn’t care.

    Had to wait for table even with a reservation. Sat at table for too long before anyone attended to us. Server absent for long periods of time. Main course was served before the pasta course, and then the pasta showed up a few minutes after the main course was served. Very disappointing!
