Just landed in Chicago and needed good food. Check. Service was a little slow but it was a beautiful evening to sit out doors.

We stayed at the attached hotel and ate dinner at Bella Bacino's twice during our stay. We had the calamari appetizer and a thin crust pizza on the first evening. The pizza was excellent but several pieces of the calamari were way underdone. We ordered individual bambino deep dish pizzas the second evening, Those pizzas were also excellent. The outside...

Tasty authentic Chicago deep dish pizza, quality ingredients. Dine in or room service to the Club Wacker. Prices a bit steep though.

Was in town on business and staying at the hotel next door. Went on Sunday night after the dinner crowd died down. Sat out on the patio cause it was a nice night and the scenery was great. Well, I sat there for 15 minutes before the waiter came to take my drink order. He was rude to start but... More

This restaurant really hit the spot when we needed it. It happened to be in our hotel, so that was a plus (River Hotel). They have seating outside which is excellent for people watching and taking in the Chicago architecture. The staff were all friendly and prompt. We ordered a personal stuffed cheese pizza and thin pizza with canadian bacon... More

This restaurant, while attached to a hotel, is not a restaurant hotel. The outdoor cafe is great for morning coffee or afternoon wine. There are crowds for dinner enjoying amazing Italian fare at reasonable prices. Reservations are recommended as we had to wait for our table....but yummy bruschetta and a glass of wine hit the spot as we waited. Don't... More

The chef appears to be a rising star. Had breakfast here and many unique items. Also a rising star in the Chicago pizza world.

This little gem was steps away from our hotel in downtown Chicago. We opted to eat on the patio and it was great. This is a smaller restaurant but we only waited for a few minutes for seating. My white wine was served cold which is exactly the way it should be served. We had a thin crust pizza and... More

Service was not very good, especially the server. Not many dishes, and some of them not available like ravioli. The place is small and although not very crowded we were placed in a hallway not very comfortable. Not a place to recommend.
