What Insiders Are Saying
Bill and Giuliana Rancic force us to like them with excellent Italian food in a trendy setting.
It has been a year since we last visited RPM Italian. A very challenging popular restaurant to get reservations, so, we were fortunate to get in for an earlier dinner. We were also fortunate to be able to find a seat at the bar. A very nice vibe and our server was excellent. Great wine selection of Italian and Calif and the Somalia ( Cory) helped us with a very nice selection. Did I mention the food.? Special appetizer was awesome, buccatini to die for and those meatballs are excellent. All in all , if you are looking for a cool vibe Italian restaurant with fantastic food and service , then you must go to RPM Italian. I know we will not wait a year to again visit..........
Teníamos reservación a las 9 pm y nos dijeron que la mesa nos la darían 30 minutos más tarde.
Así que nos ofrecieron sentarnos a cenar en el bar, y pues ahí cenamos con tal de no esperar.
Fabulous find! The best food in Chicago, the artichoke appetisers are sublime, as is the calamari. The entrees amazing and the desserts to die for.
Awesome as usual. Fantastic food and attentive service. Will definitely be back.
Excellent meal but very expensive
Food was fantastic, drinks were good, and company even better. Had the spicy king crab with squid ink pasta, and a truffle special(can’t remember) that was out of this world. Everything was great here! We will be back
Great meal and service, as usual at RPM Italian. My guests had never dined here and everyone was very impressed. Can be a little loud, if having a business dinner.
Fabulous dining experience, a memorable night with just the right lighting, ambiance, service and delicious food and wine!!
Another fantastic meal (risotto and crispy chicken) at RPM Italian.
Although, I personally was not able to be there, my associates and our guests (all in the Food Buisiness), reported that Food and Service were outstanding.
Love love love this restaurant. Happy we were able to make a reservation on short notice.
Having never been to RPM, or Chicago, I wasn’t sure what it would be. I was very happily surprised! Had my birthday there with family and it was an outstanding experience 😊😊
Food was so good and service great as well. We waiting about 15 minutes past our reservation time and they apologized to us for the wait, which really was not a big deal. Really good food and i recommend this place for several occasions.
I’ve been wanting to try RPM for a while. Finally got a reservation and went with a group of friends on a girls trip. It did not disappoint. I had the lobster ravioli and it was delicious. Service was great!
The ambiance of this place is sleek but not cold and the servers and runners match the decore. Our server was extremely knowledgeable of the drink and food menu and gave us suggestions. Every suggestion he made was delicious. The food was excellent from our appetizer to dessert and cappuccino. We highly recommend!
Service was Top Notch...would definitely come back or to another restaurant under their group
It was an overall wonderful experience in every aspect of the meal! We went to celebrate our anniversary and were treated extra-specially for the occasion with complimentary glasses of prosecco and a dessert. We will be returning soon.
Everything about RPM was amazing; from the atmosphere, the food and the service!! Can’t wait to go back and have Travis wait on us again!
Was recommended by our hotel concierge to try this restuarant for a birthday dinner, and it did not disappoint. Service was good, food was good. Would recommend to friends.
Best customer service!!
Carol was the best waitress we have ever had. She went above and beyond to make our experience as pleasant as possible. Highly recommend.
Fabulous food and impeccable service! Only negative would be wine pricing for the offering was high. Overall, a great experience and we will be back.
Food was good. Service not great. Not very attentive. Lots of time our waitress just disappeared. Brought the wrong wine to table .
We had indicated this was an anniversary dinner; they didn’t even acknowledge the event .
Suggest they fine at Ruth Chris restaurant if they need s good example on how s higher end restaurant operates!
RPM steak much better run!
There’s an Italian restaurant or steakhouse on almost every corner in Chicago, but RPM Italian is really outstanding. My international colleagues ALWAYS request a booking at RPM. Food is excellent and portions are appropriate. Very tasty and very well prepared. Wine list is good, and the sommelier was very helpful in finding a favorite. I will return every chance I get.
RPM Italian has become a staple for my wife and I. If we are looking to have a date night or just really good food to spoil ourselves with we choose here.
I never pick what I'll eat until given the specials because most of the time the specials take the cake. Food has never been disappointing and I am always amazed at how consistent the food is.
I would like to say it was better, but frankly I feel it is overrated. The reservation was at 3:45 PM, so it was not as stuffy as the evening Saturday night crowd, but I still found the ambiance a bit pretentious...and I don't know why. We had a good table, so it wasn't the seating. Our waitress was nice and very good, so that wasn't the problem. My wife's lemon drop martini tasted like water and we should have sent it back. The wood-fired octopus was "missing"...actually I think it was a small portion under the chickpeas, but not worth the $17. The garlic bread was good and there was enough. Scallops were good, and my wife had the grilled scampi...it was just OK, and a bit small. Nothing really bad, just maybe it didn't meet my expectations after I had heard so much about the place.
An excellent experience!
Awesome food and drink!
We walked in and loved how it looked, we started with the frococcia bread and Giulianas Italian salad which were both very good. I got Mama DePandis pasta which was good but i don’t do spicy at all and it was a lot spicier than i thought it would be which was a bummer, i didn’t really eat much of it. My husband got the spaghetti and meatballs and said that it was the best meal he ever had. The service was good at first but then turned bad!!! Our waitress wouldn’t show up for 20 minutes at a time and we were dying to order!!! The food was very fresh i would have to say. Overall it was alright.
Dined at RPM Italian for our anniversary dinner. We had garlic bread for an appetizer, carbonara and lobster ravioli for our entrees and the gelato/espresso for dessert - all were fantastic. The restaurant made our night a little more special with surprise glasses of champagne before we started. 10/10 would recommend.
Three friends meeting up and never been to RPM so we decided to order several things and share. We loved everything and it all came out so quickly. Definitely recommend and will be back.
Food was great, but portions were very small. Service was excellent.
We felt like royalty!! Absolutely the best staff & experience we’ve ever had... hands down. Everyone.. from the hosts to the BEST server on the planet. Thank you for a wonderful evening ☺️ and the food was amazing too!!
Atmosphere was very energetic. Gluten free menu was fantastic! Waitress was very informative about menu.
Love this place... come here every time we come to Chicago !!!!!
We excellent time.
We went to RPM Italian for our 15th wedding anniversary. It exceeded our expectations. Alex our server was excellent.........food was fantastic. The ambiance was very nice and everything was very clean. The only thing we would critique is the volume of the music being to loud and that made it harder for us to converse with each other.
Amazing food and amazing service! Thank you
Great service. Great ambiance. Food is unbelievable. All around great experience. It's our number one restaurant for any special occasion
The staff was incredible. Very attentive, polite and accommodating. Pizza appetizer was great. To bad there isn’t a pizza as an entree. Dinner was delicious.
