An Italian restaurant that is priced reasonably, has great food, including their red sauce (best sauce I've had in an Italian restaurant), and portions are generous.

I have been traveling to the loop for years and frequently eat at Bello Bacino's. Great food and reasonably priced for the loop.

Boisterous (in a nice way), connected to a hotel at the heart of Chicago, with good service and a solid menu, a bit less so for vegetarians but still enough to keep us happy. We stayed with salads over pasta, but still had more than enough to eat. We've been here several times over the years and will definitely return.

We were here with the entire Nortam team. A pretty large number. The place was chosen by a city dweller who swore by the pizzas here. So be it and we took over almost the entire place. Tried quite a few items on the menu and lots of wine. The thin crust pizzas were more palatable for me and suited... More

This is the restaurant "in" (but apparently not "of") the Club Quarters Wacker, so I have dined there many times for breakfast lunch and dinner (all three on a recent trip). The staff tries very hard to please; several of the servers seem to have worked here for years as I recognize them from prior visits. The place seems to... More

We went here after a play so we got a 20% discount. The food was amazing. We started with meatballs. They had a nice flavor and I enjoyed the bread that went with it. My fiancé had pork rigatoni and I had their chef special risotto which was sausage. We both loved our meals. We ended with tons of leftovers... More

Bellq Bacino's was the only bright spot for me while staying at the Club Quarters Hotel on E. Wacker and Michigan (see my review--not good). I checked in after 2 PM on November 25, 2015. I was hungry, but I know I couldn't eat any Italian food that day (long story). I remembered from previous stays that the oatmeal and... More

Stayed downtown overnight for the Lights Parade Nov. 21 and had dinner at Bella Bacino’s Saturday night and breakfast Sunday morning. It was literally and figuratively a night and day experience, with dinner very good and breakfast terrible. First dinner. Service was helpful, efficient and timely. Had the Calamari appetizer, which was very good, and split two of the 10-inch... More

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.
