The room we were in had very bright lights, didn’t feel like the ambiance I was expecting from this restaurant. I also ordered a pizza and it was cold. The veal on the other hand was spectacular.

Always good, always attentive. A happy default when we are making plans with friends and family. And, the hosts are incredibly efficient.

The food and wine were excellent. Our only discomfort came from being close to a busy corridor. The noise level increased with the evening and the amount of wine served.
Still, it was a very good experience and we will certainly return.

Great service started our experience from being seated promptly to getting water quickly to being asked about drinks and finally answering questions and taking the food orders. The menu was varied and unique. Or particular dinners were prepared well and flavorful. They remembered our anniversary by writing this around the plate of the dessert. Just wondering though, what if we didn’t order dessert, how would they have acknowledged it? Regardless, a nice night out despite the cold rainy weather - the valet service helped.

Always a great place to come for really solid old school Italian food.
I come to Chicago 2X a year for a trade show and Piccolo Sogno is always the first reservation that I make. They also have an extensive list of Italian wines by the glass or bottle at reasonable prices.

Doesn’t happen often here, but our order got lost in the shuffle and took 40 mins for 2 pasta dishes and a brick oven pizza to come out. Oddly, we sat down at 5:30 before the rush, which made it all the more puzzling. No mention of apology or offer to pick up small dessert.

This was our second time there. We live out of town, and enjoyed our first dinner here (last November) that we made sure to go back on our next visit to Chicago. All of the food is excellent, and the service is exceptional. It’s become one of our favorite restaurants anywhere, and we’ll try to come back whenever we return to the city.

Went for restaurant week. Oxtail was amazing and so was ravioli! Server was wonderful and I highly recommend this restaurant. The tables are quite close to each other so it’s a tight squeeze getting in and out / going to the bathroom and can be a little loud.

Definitely one of the best Italian restaurants in Chicago. And most definitely, the greatest value for Lunch during Restaurant Week! Great friendly, knowledgeable and comfortable service. Unbelievable balsimic vinegar on the table (with private label olive oil for bread service which is still complementary). Pasta textures are wonderful, mixed grill salad (mixta griglia) has the best grilled octopus you will ever have. Have a glass or two of well priced wine and leave room for dessert.

I would recommend Piccolo Sogno to a friend with a caveat: It depends on which room you're in. We visited during Chicago Restaurant Week; the value for that menu, a three-course meal for $36, was incredible. The food was terrific, the portions generous. The service was attentive. The space is lovely, and we will visit again in the summer, as there is a nice courtyard. However, the noise level was excruciating, and detracted from everything else. There are three rooms inside the restaurant and we were seated in one long room where the tables were simply crammed together, only a few inches between them. The room was full so the noise made it impossible to carry on a conversation. I love to dine out and Chicago has so many choices but my personal favorites are limited to those restaurants where my ears aren't ringing from the noise when I leave. If I were to return to Piccolo Sogno, I would ask to be seated in a different room. The first room, where the bar was, seemed the most accommodating in this way. If I could be seated there, or outside, I would be able to remember the great food and service and not the punishing noise level.

Light taste.
However, it tastes bland and is not clear.
I get tired of the amount.
