This small cafe is located in Old Town - Chicago. It is a very good place for great italian cuisine from many of the regions of Italy. Topo Gigio is Italy's equivalent of our Mickey Mouse. The atmosphere is too noisy to carry on a quiet conversation at dinnertime but hand signals are appropriate. The veteran wait staff was excellent - always present at our every need. I had the Conchiglie Mediterranea and my wife had the Linguine Cinque Terre. The bottle of Pinot Grigio Tolly Vigneti topped off an excellent dinner. We'll go back here again soon.

Came around 6 on a Saturday night, was seated right away. Had the seafood special, my dining companion had Osso buco. Both were excellent. We were in a hurry, and were served quickly. The place was busy, so we chose to sit on the enclosed patio. It was a little noisy, but also with few tables. A good place for unpretentious Italian food.

This was a good italian restaurant. The bread was good. Our wine was good. We got 2 different chianti's. I ordered a past with salmon in it. It was very rich and tasty. No complaints.

Everything on the menu was good. The waitstaff was quite knowledgeable and could have whatever you wanted whipped up for you. The service was quick and efficient. Would definately go there again.

Neighborhood institution. Nice to sit outside if you get there early enough in summer. Great food but getting pricey. Still a comfortable fun place to go. Authentic Italian dishes. There is a bar outside that gets extremely crowded - try the bar inside, it's better. It's ok to just stop in for drinks and appetizers. Pretty place, pretty garden.
