Wait staff were great. Even with a crowded restaurant the food was delivered within a reasonable timeframe, it was delicious and made it a high standard. Totally recommend this restaurant if you’re wanting an authentic Italian meal in the heart of Chicago.

This place creates delicious, fresh Italian that is light and not stodgy! In such a cool location too- you’re surrounded by freshly made pasta, bread, fresh cheese, Italian wine and lots of other amazing Italian produce. We loved it!

An excellent spot for everything Italian. Tried the Pasta, Ravioli, Ice Creams and handcrafted chocolates. None of them disappointed me.

Fun evening out with the family. We shopped the market, ate dinner and had desert. A little pricey but very good!

What an experience of a place, would highly recommend. It is pricey but Chicago on the whole is pricey. Take time to look around, have some lunch and finish with an ice cream. Great!

We were looking for a unique place for dinner. We wanted something light and not a chain. We initially thought it was a grocery store. It is much more! Multiple restaurants, huge dessert and gelato bar, fresh everything. You must stop by!

The homemade pasta was very delicious. The pizza would have been delicious too but the crust was burnt which spoiled the overall taste. The salad was great and the light dressing was unique. Our server was very attentive and even shared information about why their...More

Great concept - shop or eat with a glass of wine. Grab a glass of wine and basket when you enter and just shop or eat. Two floors of pasta, meats, cheese, italian grocery staples and wine. I wish we had a cooler with us...More

We have been to Chicago’s Eataly several times. We have enjoyed it ever time. Buy a glass Prosecco at the door to sip as you shop. If you are a Italian Food fan this should definitely be on you shopping plans. If you have not...More

There are alot. it just depends on how much you want to spend. There are really high end ones. But I love the Freehand hotel. It's an upper crust hostel that iis super hip. Good luck!
