The decor was absolutely beautiful. As soon as we walked in we were warmly greeted and the good service never came to an end. We had caesar salads, two color linguine with scallops and slipper lobster tails, ad the veal with scalloped potatoes asparagus and broccoli. The flavors were amazing. Nothing was over cooked and the sauces were perfection. My... More

I came to the US from Italy as an exchange student and I've had dinner at this restaurant several times in 2013/14. I've tried all kinds of fake-Italian dishes while in America and I liked them a lot, but when I went to Barolo's I was happy to have real Italian food! It's a really nice place with a cozy... More

Our friends took us to dinner at this place - and we were pleasantly surprised. The atmosphere is a bit dark, but welcoming. Sharp afternoon sun streamed in - the waiter was very accommodating rearranging the drapes for us. Rack of lamb - very good and nicely presented. Stuffed pork chops, tender and flavorful. 2 vegetable accompaniments were a bit... More

From setting up dinner to feed a Joliet wedding rehearsal dinner with the owner to accommodating my party of 60 adults and 5 children, every detail of our planned meal was carried out perfectly. The food was prepared to perfection including special requests for some gluten free and vegan. Do not forget their desserts that were a wide variety and... More

You cannot find better Italian near Joliet. They are on a level with the best you will find in Chicago.

Dear Retired traveler Midwest, I'm responding because your review is not for our restaurant. We do not have any wines by the glass that come close to $47 per glass, we also have not had a two hour wait in recent weeks. Please contact us, we would like to discuss this review with you. I'm sure it's a simple mistake,... More

First time at this restaurant. Got there before 6pm during the week. Found out that between 4pm and 6pm on weekdays the early bird special for $18.95 includes a choice of six or so entrees including a fish, a glass of the house wine and a choice of full size dessert. The food was tasty and filling.

Went on a cold, snowy evening when they were short staffed, but had prompt, friendly service. Have been here for dinner and lunch a few times when in town and it usually has very good consistent food, with a few nice highlights here and there. Decent wine selection and appetizer (Carpaccio) was very good. Tried the andouille sausage pasta special... More

I see you have no other reviews, not one. It's not our policy to hold any specific table for any specific party on any given date. I'm sorry the table you considered yours was taken by an earlier customer, but that's the way reservations work. We can not predict when a table with an earlier reservation will leave so our... More
