Description: RPM Italian presents cuisine that is modern in approach and Italian in spirit, with dishes intended to be shared. Chef partner Doug Psaltis has created a menu which features a variety of cold and hot antipasti, more than a dozen freshly prepared in-house pastas, and a selection of salads, prime steaks, chops and slow-roasted meats. The restaurant also has an open bar area where guests can order a signature cocktail, or enjoy a glass of wine from their extensive list. Sophisticated and chic, yet unpretentious, RPM Italian is perfect for a great meal or late night out.

Loved every minute we were there, had a tuna appetizer and mama dupandi's pasta! We also had the pork chop and lobster ravioli at our table. All were excellent and we had a knowledgeable and entertaining waiter and staff!

I am not quite certain what I was expecting...but I was immediately impressed by the decor at RPM. What a beautiful place! Had a drink at the bar prior to seating with friends and the bartender overhead us talking about Pisco and made us one! Not a drink they serve everywhere, but love it always. The risotto with truffles was excellent...so we ordered another one! Service and food awesome, I recommend it!

Had a nice meal on our last night in Chicago. The only open reservation was 5 or 11 so we opted for the early bird. Apps were pretty good. our server explained that most of the food was meant to be shared and that portions were not huge. We didn't have a problem with that. Food between courses came way too quickly. They had barely taken away the App plates and the main course was served. It would have been nice to have more time to relax between courses. The lemon sorbet was fabulous.

We are Frequent Diners at many of the Lettuce Entertain You venues and we were intrigued to see what Bill and Giuliana Rancic had to add to the chain. Would have to say that this fell somewhere between Maggiano's and Joe's Seafood. Maggiano's won out on portion size. Joe's won on food quality, although the meatballs melted in my mouth, the others items we ordered seemed unremarkable. And it was a tie with Joe's on service. Our server Caitlin was exceptional. She was friendly, knowledgeable and the rest of the wait staff was at the right level of attentiveness. The wine list and draft/craft beer offerings were very good. If you like "hoppy" beer try the Daisy Cutter. It's an enegetic atmosphere and the noise level was high. Since we dined earlier on a Saturday(5 PM) there were a few families there with there very well behaved younger children and I noticed that the staff was quick to accomate them.
