Bella Bacino hosted our 50th anniversary party and did it quite nicely, accommodating our requests. We ate breakfasts there often and had beer on the outside terrace quite comfortably.

My husband and I stopped by for dinner. We set outside, the restaurant has a very nice view of the city. The service was great, everyone is very friendly. The food was amazing, but needs a little salt, We had the polenta as an appetizer, and the linguini and meatballs, and the penne a Bolognese. Everything was very good. I... More

Bar service was relaxed and friendly. The menu was Italian and the only restaurant in the hotel, so you have to like Italian. The place seemed popular with locals as well as visitors and people staying at the hotel.

We had breakfast here because it was right next to our hotel. Food was good, reasonably priced and served quickly. The only downfall was the service. The waiter while not rude or disrespectful certainly gave off a vibe that he would rather be any place other than work. We will probably try somewhere else tomorrow.

This restaurant is in the River Hotel with a spacious outdoor seating area and a view of the river and the Marina Towers. We enjoyed a good Italian dinner here and great wine and appetizers in the afternoon after a day of museums and shopping Tip: Call 20 minutes ahead and they will prepare a great deep dish pizza.

We just arrived to Chicago and our room was not ready. The hotel gave us a coupon for 20% off, we sat outside and had a great lunch. The salad was good, fresh and plentiful. The bread for the table was delicious.

Lunch and Bella Bacino's was at the suggestion of the concierge from our hotel (Hyatt on Wacker) and was just great. The outdoor seating on a cool Saturday afternoon made for a perfect vacation lunch. The appetizers might have been our favorite! Our table of 4 shared both the grilled and fried calamari. Just delicious. The COLD draft beer really... More

We ate outside on a balmy evening. It was wonderful sitting right on the patio on Wacker Drive looking out over Trump Plaza and the edge of the Chicago River. Two marvelous salads and a split pizza, some local ales. Very reasonable and memorable.
