Awesome food.

Excellent kale salad and a great thin crust pizza! The waiter gave us a half salad, which was by no means small, but it was perfect along with the pizza. The pizza had 4 pieces but they were large pieces, enough if you are hungry. The service was a little slow for breakfast the next day... read more

We had a break between a wedding ceremony & the reception and the hotel recommended this place for lunch. It turned out to be very good advice. The service was great, the food was very good, and the price was more than fair ($70 for five people for lunch). Everyone was happy with their meals: pizza, salads, cheese and meat... More

First the positive ... went for pizza based on reviews here, but got there early enough for breakfast. We both had omelets, which were very yummy, especially the Italian toast ... got to include it, if you order breakfast. There is an outside dining area, but see negative comments below. Now for the negative ... I grade a restaurant on... More

The Chicago style deep dish pizza couldn't match Giordano's - the best. The Caesar salad was unremarkable. But the worst part of the meal was the noise factor - way too loud in a confined area; no sound -absorbing materials. We had to forego dessert and go back to our hotel room just to have an intelligible conversation. An important... More

I stayed in the adjoining River Hotel and ate dinner here one night. I had the individual deep pan pizza and it was delicious.

I have been staying in the Club Quarters Hotel above Bella Bacino's for a week, and it is my usual place to stay in Chicago (and London) over the last 4 years. This trip I have walked into Bela Bacino's multiple times thinking about getting a quick bite, but each time it didn't feel inviting or like a place I... More

We each ate the breakfast we like best: oatmeal and fruit and orange juice, two eggs and bacon, a frittata and coffee. Very good service, waiter with a lot of hustle!

We had a Groupon and had to choose from their groupon menu which had limited offerings. The food was very good. We had 2 appetizers, bruschetta and polenta and mushrooms with a delicious sauce. They were both excellent. Our 2 entrées were penne bolognese and focaccia crusted chicken. Everything was very tasty except for the mashed potatoes. I would substitute... More

Staying in Downtown / The Loop

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown / The Loop
Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a good starting point to sample the city's energy and flavor. This central business district boasts Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of Millennium Park and Cloud Gate (“The Bean”), one of the most iconic landmarks in the city. A stunning skyline coupled with cultural attractions like the Art Institute of Chicago present a Downtown where work and play peacefully coexist.
