As a local, I've visited here about 4 or 5 times since they opened. It is pretty inside and the service is always pretty good. They make it a point to explain every time that they have their own independent chef who kind of does things on a whim and the menu is different often. A few times they brought... More

We chose this restaurant because it was close to our evening program and we had a free dessert coupon from our hotel. What a surprise! Portions are generous so don't be surprised if you have no room for dessert. The risotto with chicken and portabella mushrooms was so good I couldn't keep my date off my plate. The service staff...

This was my second time here, and it was just as good the second time! Both times I got one of the (fish) specials, and both times they were very good. They have nice portion sizes for the price. The bread was a little bland, but that was free, so I can't say much about that. Also, I had the... More

First and foremost, if you are looking for a real sit-down restaurant, amazing and original food, excellent service and atmosphere...Barolo is the best restaurant in Joliet. I know. I have lived here for over 12 years. However, Joliet is full of burger joints, chicken shops, beef & sausage places, taco trucks, etc. In my opinion, when I look at Tripadvisor,... More

At first look this is a little joint hidden away in a strip mall in a nondescript town. If you drive by, as I did for many years, you will be missing out. Once I found this place it is now my go-to joint for Italian. The menu, by itself, is very good, but, if you have a special request,... More

I have been coming here for years and do not let the strip mall location fool you. Upon entering you literally forget you are in a strip mall. There are large draperies on all the windows, it is roomy, beautifully decorated every Christmas season and the food is fabulous. You see and taste the quality in everything that is served.

We wanted an Italian dinner that would be worth the trip and this is the restaurant! You will pay a higher price for the meal but you will get your money's worth. It's not a "chain" style location, so you will get wonderful variety and even better quality. It might be a while before we return, need another family night... More
