I asked my concierge where to get a light lunch before leaving for the airport. Thankfully he pointed me to Bella Bacino's, literally right downstairs from my hotel. I ordered a Romano Crusted Chicken which came out surprising light (not oily) with a nice mix of salad. Perfect for a hot summer day. I wouldn't hesitate to eat here again... More

Ate at Bella Bacino's last night since it was right next to our hotel and we were tired. The food was fine, but nothing special. We had the fried calamari, which I enjoyed but my wife thought was too bready, the poached pear and gorgonzola salad, which was very good, and the shrimp linguini, which was tasty but only had...

This is a very handy restaurant if you are staying at the adjacent Club Quarters on Wacker. There is a good wine list and portions are generous. The famous deep dish pizzas are as good as any you will find in Chicago but be prepared to wait about 40 mins for these which is par for the course. The patio... More

The location is wonderful for an outdoor eating experience. I wish I could say the same about the service. The hostess paid more attention to our table than our waiter did. Salads were good, entree's weren't, but after waiting for over an hour and a half to get them, we ate them anyways because we were starving. Dessert was good.... More

After a long day of walking the city and after returning to our hotel we decided to eat some apps and have a few drinks at Bella which was adjacent to our hotel. Our server Frank was personable and helpful in our choosing of apps. After eating we ventured inside to have a few after dinner drinks where we were... More

Really the most disgusting pizza I have ever tasted. We left most of it. Not ven the wine was any good. Overpriced as well. Never going back.

Very good food and service. They provided a meeting room for three days, plus lunch buffet style in the room for our 20 or so attendees. No complaints.

Holy homemade ravioli, Batman! This restaurant has delicious entrees, salads and desserts! Go ahead and order the tastes of all three desserts (flour less chocolate cake, tiramisu and creme brulee) Worth it!

When I'm in the city, I always enjoy eating here. The food is good, and prices reasonable. I deducted a star for atmosphere. The back room is just blah, and the lighting isn't the greatest. It could use a warmer, cozier feel to it. Otherwise, very good. ;)

I'd definitely eat here again for both the quality of service staff and the quality of the food. Very quiet and stately.

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.
