This neighborhood restaurant has a very "up town" feel to match the white table cloths, well-dressed staff and superb menu. That it is a take-out and delivery pizzeria along with the restaurant is a testament to how well Il Poggiolo has been accepted by the locals. We started with Endive and Red/Golden Beet salads which were well done. We then... More

I've been to this restaurant in the past & have always had delicious family Italian meals. This time I ordered a take-out extra thin extra large cheese pizza since some members of my family were not meat eaters. I must say that this was the best pizza I've had in a very long time. There are 3 other places in... More

A comfortable setting in a quaint city. The Italian presence of the smells and flavors were prominent as you entered. The table setting, the service, the selection of dinner options were all very good.

Once again we visited this restaurant for lunch with friends. There was a birthday party of 13 ladies going on just adjacent to where we were seated - kind of made me wonder why they would have seated us there since we were 4 "older" people who might wish to converse. The salmon burger was very tasty as was the... More

Really thought this place would go under. Went a couple of times and it seemed like they were trying too hard. Food was pretty good but in the end, nothing special. Maybe we should try it again, as it has been a while.

this place has good solid food, and some great wait staff. The problem is the noise level. the owners are trying different things to help and it has gotten bettter, but the place is not a place to take someone to really talk or listen

My husband and I had lunch here yesterday. Someone had given him a gift card for Christmas so we thought we would stop while out running errands. The restaurant itself is very tastefully decorated. Loved the light fixtures. Unfortunately we asked for a booth and were seated right by the windows. It was really drafty so I put my jacket... More

Beautiful room and great place for couples, families, drinks at the bar or even take out. In the summer they have a nice outdoor space. The food is very good. I would recommend the pasta dishes. The very thin crust pizzas are great.

Clearly this is an up-market restaurant but I found it relatively expensive and characterless, although I think I'm in a minority. Hinsdale is not the place to look for character or something interesting or out-of-the-ordinary, I guess. The food was good, of course.

Sophisticated menu, Chicago-class service, very fine food, cool decor. If you want Italian you will like it here. Try the octopus appetizer. We also had the saffron-laced seafood in broth, a special. All very good with smooth service.
