Sometimes when you dine out the food is really good and that makes your visit really good! Sometimes, it's the service and sometimes it's the atmosphere! Well, at Bella Bacino's it is all three that make it an total excellent experience! There are two strategies I employ to maximize the number of slices of deep dish that I eat. It... More

It was Marathon Weekend. It was very busy. Party of three ate in the dining room on Friday. They were completely booked for Saturday, but they accommodated us with take-out meals. Pasta, Pizza, and Salads were excellent.

Food was good. Service not so much. Server was nice but not very attentive. We enjoyed being outside but we're bothered by some walking by.

Two colleagues and myself were on a business trip in Chicago and were trying to find a dinning place in the evening of September 26,2016. We were hungry and exhausted after walking around in the downtown area. After we failed to find a restaurant recommended by others, we decided to just drop-in to the next eatery place. Up came the...

Had a great dinner with family. Had pizza and pasta for four of us. The drinks and the wine we requested were served promptly and were top notch. We would not hesitate to visit them again.

So, we were so excited to try this Italian restaurant and we were so disappointed ! First off, disorganized and poor reception-pick up, walk in and reservations all in the same line. Secondly, we were put into a grey room that they must use for meetings with dirty dishes everywhere. Next, waited 30 min. for half of the drinks-out of... More

First, if the downstairs area where they hosted our group dinner for 40-or-so was held upstairs where the pretty people sit, maybe it would be a better experience. At the very least, much prettier look and feel, and more upscale than the dank downstairs. Downstairs = not a good start to your experience. downstairs = no character. A few steps... More

A great spot on Wacker just off Michigan Ave. Delicious, well-priced food. Portions are large. Waitstaff is very welcoming and friendly. It's our favorite, go-to restaurant when we visit Chicago. There is a nice outside area for food and drink when the weather is good!

Thank judijudi

Staying in Downtown / The Loop

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown / The Loop
Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a good starting point to sample the city's energy and flavor. This central business district boasts Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of Millennium Park and Cloud Gate (“The Bean”), one of the most iconic landmarks in the city. A stunning skyline coupled with cultural attractions like the Art Institute of Chicago present a Downtown where work and play peacefully coexist.
