We always make a point to have lunch at Coco Pazzo when we visit Chicago. The food is genuinely Italian. The wine list includes many interesting selections. And the service is top notch. The ambiance is one of casual refinement with great acoustical treatment to allow conversation. A Chicago institution, in my opinion

The menu is well versed, the staff is attentive and knowledgable, and the vino is superb. The kale salad and chickpea soup are delicious. The homemade ravioli is also exquisite. It is pricey for the amount of food--a true city ristorante.

It was really just average, nothing to write home about. It would be different if the prices were more less-mid range, but at top dollar you can certainly find many other spots. I actually had to return the Pappardelle and got the rigatoni instead. There were 8 of us and only guy really enjoyed his dish...most just said it was... More

We booked a table for 9 of us on a Saturday night as part of a weekend trip to Chicago. No wait time when we showed up at 8pm. Easy to hear conversation across the table, despite restaurant quite full of patrons. Wonderful antipasta starters... I highly recommend. Great wine list.

Ever since a friendly waiter at a new Italian restaurant in Sarasota, Florida, recommended a Mediterranean sea bass called Branzino, I have been caught--hook, line and sinker. Trouble is, I haven't had much luck in finding it on other menus at other restaurants. Until now. Coco Pazzo, a wonderful Tuscan Italian restaurant in Chicago's River North neighborhood, has discovered Branzino.... More

Went for 60th birthday celebration, visiting our son in Chicago from Pittsburgh. Had a reservation. Offered table pressed against waiter service shelves filled with dishes; asked for better table and given one by window. Waiter was abrupt; hurrying; raised brows when we asked for more bread for appetizer. Pasta delicious, but waited over half an hour for main course. Waiter... More

Love this little place on St. Clair. Smaller menu where everything is done well. One of the best caesar salads with anchovies and a tasty parmesan crisp on top. Excellent wine selection and good cocktails also. Outdoor seating when weather allows. Great service.
