As a strict reviewer in Trip Advisor I never rate a place as "Excellent" unless it's really amazing and totally worth-going. I've rated little amount of things Excellent. but this is for SURE that is worth an Excellent. The taste was unbelievable. Big variety of food for all taste. My family and I are vegetarians, so it's actually HARD to... More

I had my worst pizza experience throughout my life in this restaurant. The pizza dough was too thick and dry. There were nearly no cheese on the pizza. I would never go there again. The pizza sauce could be barely felt. It was a very bad experience

L'Appetito is well hidden so you have to look closely on Michigan avenue beneath the towers. They have freshly made subs and sandwiches, pizza and various salad options. It gets extremely busy during lunch but not to worry, the line moves quickly. Go right to the front and get a ticket as soon as you enter. They also have amazing... More

An easy to find food and pastry shop at the base of the John Hancock building. They have delicious gelato. I recommend the burnt caramel. A little pricey, but worth it for a special treat!

Dining in Chicago is quite amazing. From Chicago style hot dogs to fine restaurants, but when you are touring, maybe you don't have the time (or the money) to eat "out" each an every meal. We found this little gem while shopping and needed a snack. More like a grab-n-go pantry, you can find anything from pasta salad, to pizza,... More

I live in the Hancock and this is the place I go for the coffee. Not only is the coffee great they have a HUGE selection of pastries, cakes and dainties. They also have an Italian deli with meats, cheeses and lunchtime paninis.

Came here for gelato. We tried four different types. None were remarkable. Tried the pistachio, chocolate, salted caramel and one I don't recall at all, The salted caramel was the best, by unanimous agreement.
