Great pizza

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

Was part of a large party business dinner. Solid Italian food but very inefficient service. The staff were overwhelmed and unable to get it together. Dinner took more than 3 hours. Smaller parties might have a much better experience. They tried...just was not their night to shine!

Just next door to the Wyndham hotel, we stopped in for a meal on our arrival to Chicago. The Concierge gave us a 20% discount coupon! and we found prices fair, with nice (European) portions, fresh food and service with a smile.

We stumbled on this restaurant and were very pleased with the pizza. We walked in early and received our appetizers quickly. The pizza arrived within the expected time and it was delicious. The staff is very friendly and helpful. We will stop in again!

I've been here a couple of times and it's just ok. It's nice to be outside and kids like it, sometimes we will stop here if we're in a hurry on our way somewhere because it's close to our preferred hotel. Personally I like my dining and hotel experiences to be outstanding when travelling so I probably won't go back.... More

Went here for dinner since it was connected to my hotel (River Hotel). The best thing I can say for this place is that it is easier to find than the hotel that it is connected to (their sign is bigger). Had drinks and calamari to start with. Drinks didn't have much alcohol, if any, and were very expensive. The... 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.
