We stopped here the first morning of our visit and kept coming back. A little something for everyone and fast. Pastries, muffins, sandwiches, gelato and more. We had two picky eaters with us and all found something of choice to eat.

We were in Chicago for 4 days and went to L'Appetito 3 times. Authentic Italian deli with fabulous sandwiches, the Tony's Special and the Muffuletta were our favorites, fabulous sweet treats and Gelato. The cafe has a sweet atmosphere and is a great place to stop and rest after a long walk down the Magnificent Mile. The only reason I... More

Located on the Magnificent Mile, L'Appetito is noted for breakfast, tiramisu gelato, Arancini (Italian fried rice ball stuffed with ricotta and spinach), grilled panini and its prosciutto di Parma sandwich. But many patrons stop in for a slice of sausage pizza and call it lunch. Me? I'm more of a traditionalist. Breakfast is two scrambled eggs, potatoes and sausage links.... More

Came here a second time and this time had a Arancini, Italian fried rice ball stuffed with ricotta and spinach. If that was all that they served this place would be five stars easily! It was out of this world. Creamy and crispy all at the same time! Done to perfection! Also had a cappuccino. Not the best. Insert sad... More

We stopped in here waiting on the 360 Chicago attraction to open. I ordered a bacon egg and cheese croissant and my boyfriend got a little treat from the bakery case. I couldn't pronounce the name of it. We got cold drinks from the case. It was good. The staff was really nice. It was a nice little place while... More

In a city of high restaurant prices, this is a great place to get a good meal at a decent price. You can easily hike up your food costs by perusing the pastry/dessert cases. The staff can be a bit gruff, but the food is worth it.

This place is good for coffee, tea, muffins, croissants but don't order the hot breakfast. The hot breakfast are not hot since they're premade and you order from a display case. The turnover of the hot breakfast is quite slow so you're better off ordering a muffin or croissant.
