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.

This place must really blow hot and cold according to the mixed reviews on Tripadvisor and whilst we appreciate all individual comments, we really couldn't let our experience go by without adding our views to the mix. We had noticed how popular this place was at times by the number of folks sitting at the outside tables as we walked... More

We stayed at the Club Quarters 75 Wacker and Bacino's is right next door. Every trip to Chicago we stop and have a Bacino's pizza. Great taste and well worth the wait. The view from the outdoor seating is one of a kind in Chicago. Highly recommend.

We had breakfast here it was a huge mistake. The waitress didn't bring coffee until we asked several times, did not bring oj as requested. The omelet was COLD, the potatoes were COLD, toast (for which we had to PAY EXTRA!) was also COLD, accompanied with frozen butter. What's the point? You could walk a few feet next door to... More

Service was slow, food was just ok and took almost twice as long as they told me. Wasn't bad, just wasn't worth the 2 hour wait

Had dinner last night at this restaurant in the bottom of a hotel that faces the canal. There is an outdoor patio which would have great views, but it was raining so we weren't able to enjoy it personally. I made a reservation through their website about 5 hours before our dinner for 5 people (at 8 PM). There was... More

We ordered a small deep dish for 3 adults and it was more than enough with some take away left. The pizza took about 40 minutes and we were told by our waiter you can order ahead. But it was worth the wait. Best I have had in Chicago

I had dinner here a couple of times on my stay in Chicago, mostly because of it's location. I stayed at Club Quarters and it was right downstairs. The food was very good. Hot and fresh food - nothing frozen. My review would have been 'Excellent' if not for their bizarre and very strict rule of not allowing two people... More

Service was good but a little slow. We had someone show up unexpectedly and they expanded our table of 4 so we could seat 5. Home made pasta. They are know for their pizza but we all ordered pasta. Pizza looked good.
