Good food, cozy restaurant

We dined here with another couple and were pleasantly surprised. The staff was friendly, the food was tasty, and the venue itself was quite comfortable. We will return.

I wrote my first review of this restaurant last June nearly a year ago. I have revisited 3 or 4 times sense including a visit last week. We were a party of three with varied tastes. Everyone had an excellent meal presented by a friendly, helpful server. Several nice bottles of a reasonably priced Tuscan blend capped the wonderful meal.... More

Went there with a group of friends and family. There are plenty of better choices for Italian. The salad was very basic and bland, and the chicken was tough. To make things worse, a few of us had upset stomachs afterwards. Service was abrupt. Will not go back, ever.

I visit Chicago on a monthly basis and have found this western suburb restaurant to be my favorite Italian cuisine in the greater Chicagoland area. I was truly surprised to find a restaurant of this quality in the suburbs as opposed to downtown. With a focus on southern Italy fare, the menu leans a bit on seafood, which I enjoy.... More

Located on the second floor of Kilwins Chocolate Store, Il Sogno serves many excellent Italian dishes. We wee a party of eight and so we were able to sample many dishes. We began with the grilled calamari and it was cooked just right (it becomes chewy if overcooked). For the main course, we had the linguine with clams, veal marsala,... More

I made my reservation for this restaurant on www.opentable.com one day in advance of my arrival. When one of the servers greeted me upon arrival, he immediately told me that there would be a forty-five minute wait, because they were short staffed. I informed him that I had a reservation for 7:45 PM and it is 7:45 PM. He said... More

I thought I couldn't find Italian like the lower east side of Manhattan anywhere else. Wrong this place can go toe to toe with any of them, The only thing missing is the wiseguys. Best Baked claims and veal parm anywhere. Everything we had was spectacular!

Enjoy Il Sogno. We especially love Rosie and her mom who will come out later and tell us stories or describe the food. We feel like part of the family. Mussels in anything are worth the visit. Wine selection is good. It is family food and not gourmet, and it is a place to visit every month. We love to... More
