Best Italian Food in Chicago

Coco Pazzo has the best Italian food in Chicago at a very reasonable price for its level of quality (white table cloth, fine-dining). To start, try the beef carpaccio (best I have ever had) and the mushroom risotto (also the best I have ever had). Next, the best pasta that always remains on the... read more

Kept walking by here on the way home from work and decided to try it out. Excellent choice. Very good Italian with moderate prices for downtown Chicago. I had the Gnocchetti and Mozzarella di Bufala. Both excellent with the Gnocchetti fresh and made in house. My wife had the roasted quail and raved about it. Pair these with a bottle... More

This picky, critical, well-traveled diner stopped at Coco Pazzo on a whim for lunch, after years of having not eaten there, despite having very fond memories of it. It did not disappoint. I was by myself and was hosted impeccably. The service was attentive and friendly but not over bearing. The bread was crusty and flavorful, the salad green and... More

Upon entering the establishment, we were immediately greeted by not only the host, but also someone who was ready to check our coats and a server. This type of meticulous and attentive service continued throughout our dinner at Coco Pazzo. Our drink and food orders were taken immediately, we received the food in a timely manner, and the two persons... More

During a recent visit back to Chicago, a group of us gathered at a favorite for an early-Holiday reunion dinner. There were eight of us and the restaurant was humming at peak time. We had rounds of cocktails and enjoyed conversation as we took our time in ordering. When it came to ordering, we were all over the menu and,... More

My wife and I have eaten here a number of times when visiting Chicago. The menu has a nice selection of pasta, meat and seafood and everything we have tried has been delicious. It is all accompanied by a great wine list. The restaurant has an upscale but very comfortable ambience. Service is outstanding. They meet your every need without... More

What a wonderful find for lunch. Service was perfect and food outstanding. I had the special shrimp pasta with leeks and tomatoes in white wine garlic sauce. Hubby had rigatoni with sausage and peas. Also shared lentil soup. Pasta was homemade and oh so yummy. So glad hotel mentioned . On next visit will go to lunch and dinner.

We were in Chicago for a 50th birthday celebration and Coco was highly recommended. Martin took great care of us. A wonderful meal and evening.

Lovely rustic atmosphere; attentive service; interesting menu. Specials, a true antipasto selection and delicious bruschetta. Tables are a little close together and reservations are definitely recommended.

Had dinner here before attending the opera recently--it's only a few blocks away from the Civic Opera House. The meal was wonderful! Started out with an antipasto appetizer plate for two--and really, that would've been enough for a meal for two. Everything was really, really tasty. My entrée was vegetable lasagna, and it was one of the best versions of... More
