At first look, when we arrived at this restaurant, we were very skeptical - the decor was nothing special and the front dining room was almost empty (though it was a Tuesday, in fairness). It turned out everybody had opted for sitting at the back...More

I was impressed. I was initially skeptical of all the good press reviews--the menu looked rather limited. It is relatively limited, but every dish was fantastic. While supposedly "Korean with Italian influences", it's not that easy to pigeon-hole. It's interesting, well-presented contemporary fare. I normally...More

Had a delicious meal here. Really enjoyed the atmosphere and the amazing food bursting with flavors. I had the Korean Style Rice cakes in an Italian style lamb nech ragu.

Small dishes with lots of tastes. Not unpleasant but not what you would call plain cooking. You need to order about 7 things to make it worthwhile. Personally, I came home hungry having spent $150 for two people. Would I return? Probably not. Would I...More

You’re right there with the staff and bartenders. Very small venue but absolutely delicious. Order about two small plates per person and then a main course for every couple. The short rib was fantastic. The baby octopus, scallops, were all quite delicious. For the experience...More

Yes, the portions are small- I ordered four different items (one from each section except for the "for two" section) and was able to eat them all. The rice cakes with lamb ragu were so delicious. Very interesting food, and I liked the laid-back atmosphere....More

My daughter and I went for birthday dinner, and had a good experience. The crispy, light fish was very tasty- light, tender whitefish with a perfectly crispy skin, and de-boned, too! The variety of veggies was different would have liked a touch more flavor in...More

Thanks to Chicago Magazine which featured Passerotto in their articlu about new Chicago restaurants, we had a chance to visit this awesome place. It is located in beautiful Andersonville Village. We did not have a reservation but for two people we got seated by the...More

We spent over $350 bucks for food, which was barely adequate in terms of portion size and ok, but nothing special. Very disappointing. It was really poor value for money - having been a long time resident of Andersonville, I would guess this will not...More

It could be that I don't need my food to be exotic, and overpriced, or simply that I do not believe this is value for money. I'm going with the latter. As much as I'm not objectionable to small portions that taste well, I am...More

Terence- We're sorry to hear that you didn't have a great experience at the restaurant. The menu is written from a deeply personal and emotional perspective so We will always stand behind what we serve and why we serve it; still we are always looking...More
