The food was delicious with nicely sized portions. The service was outstanding; our waiter was attentive but not intrusive. Both the dining room and the kitchen, though busy, appeared to be running with a sense of ease and friendly hospitality. And even though it was New Year's Eve, the kitchen accommodated a special menu request. We look forward to our return visit.

We came here for a special birthday dinner and celebrated a beautiful evening! The staff could not have been more engaging and attentive. The atmosphere is warm, welcoming and cozy. Our dinner was spectacular - we enjoyed mussels, homemade pasta (which was superb) and tiramisu. It was a memorable experience for a memorable event!

It has everything I like about a restaurant: a neighborhood feel; a menu full of old favorites and interesting daily specials (especially the fish and seafood choices); reasonable prices; and cordial, relaxing servers who make eye contact and seem interested in my enjoyment of the meal.

Enoteca is my go-to restaurant. The food is wonderful and made for you. The folks are extremely pleasant and helpful and want to make your evening special....which they do. My only complaint is that they are not open for lunch which limits our options in the area...

Phenomenal. I have Italian family. And I love Italian food, but can be fairly picky about traditional flavors. This restaurant is phenomenal in every way - wine, appetizer, entree, dessert, service.... all of it. I would go again in a heart beat.

I had the Chicken Milanese which was to die for and my husband had the Sea Bass special & linguini with white clam sauce. Our server was very attentive and friendly. Will definitely return if we visit Chicago again.

We adore Both Ricardo restaurants. This Enoteca location has the bonus of a very charming patio area. We always enjoy their well priced wine list and delicious food. We came recently with our baby daughter and they went out of their way to accommodate.

I'm typically a snob when it comes to Italian food, so know that this place is good. Prices are fair and portions are generous (though not over-the-top). I got the gnocchi with shrimp and creamy pesto and they did not skimp on the shrimp - also the sauce was nice and light, gnocchi cooked perfectly.

We found the locsl ambiance well worth the drive as we celebrated our wedding anniversary. The menu was broad. Wine list extensive. Price was modest for a restaurant of such reputation. The wait staff wss freindly and helpful. The atmosphere of a local venue was inviting and enjoyable. Service was excellent as there was no wait time. Preparation, presentation and taste of menu items selected wsd excellent by the Chef and staff. The entire experience was excellent and highly recommended for out of towners seeking an alternative to the cookie cutter approach to fine dining and locals are fortunate to have such a fine venue readily available to enjoy.
