Nice loop restaurant-Upscale with outside dining.

Great atmosphere as I felt like I was stepping back into time when I entered. Bread as hot and fresh, Salad had a nice dressing and overall it was a very nice experience.

Had lunch with a friend at Petterino's We sat outside and it was pleasant. The restaurant is popular for business people on their lunch hour. My friend and I ordered a crispy chicken signature salad and chicken BLT. It took 40 minutes to get our food. Our server rarely showed up. 25 minutes after we placed our order, she came... More

This is a great place to have a beer and check out the view. My friend and I had lunch and enjoyed it. It sits on a corner at a busy intersection in the Loop. It is an ideal location to people watch. The food and drinks are excellent. Highly recommend!

Many times a reservation was attempted to try Petterino's before going to the theatre and at last one was obtained! However, after a long wait, it turned out to be a very average visit. We took the recommendation of the waitress to try the Skirt Steak and Chicken Parm and felt that the meal was very average. And entree salad... More

it's a wonderful place to watch people. Each day of the week offers a specialty. Wed. before a matinee at the adjoining Goodman theater, you'll see the ladies come to lunch. And on the day of a County Board meeting, you'll see politicians galore. The food is ok, but the people watching superb.

Went with several business associates after dinner elsewhere. Happened to be the first night of the Cavaliers vs Golden State NBA finals. The bar is pretty large and the place was rockin'! A little hard to hear but a lot of fun. Flash ... folks in Chicago are definitely not Cleveland fans!

The almond crusted white fish was perfectly prepared and tasted light and crunchy. Vanessa was a terrific waitress with charm and energy. Another great Petterinos' lunch.

The restaurant is a great option to enjoy an Italian cousine in Chicago! The pasta with Chicken parmeggiana is wonderful! The place is nice and clean. There are caricatures of famous people in all the walls that create a interesting atmosphere. It's a nice entertainment to try to guess who is in that draws. Try not to arrive close the... More

This is probably your only before/after show venue (Oriental) and it was really busy....NY like. Appetizer was good and the service as well. I'l like to have had more time for a full dinner.

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.
