We chanced upon this charming local restaurant still serving fairly late, and were genuinely so impressed by the excellence of the (very authentic) Italian food that we returned again the following night for an equally good meal. Both times we enjoyed excellent service from Frank A. The mushroom rigatoni was a great signature dish, but both the shrimp linguini and... More

We stayed at River Hotel which the restaurant is in it's lobby. The deep dish pizza was wonderful (my daughter's first taste of Chicago deep dish), but the service was meh. It was a busy night, but there were empty tables and our waiter was still only mildly attentive. Next visit we will order our food to go. The food... More

The cozy ambiance of Bella Bacino's makes it a great place to have an Italian meal of any kind, but we went there specifically for their stuffed pizza- and it did not disappoint. This pizza was a cheese, tomato and pastry heaven. I also enjoyed their Irish coffee. Would definitely recommend this place to friends.

We needed a quick place to eat near our hotel. It's ok. I read the other reviews....but they must all be from tourists. It's ok. Pastas are fresh and portions are large. Service is fine. It's a place to eat but not dine.

This restaurant is small but so cute, the best pizza I ate in US so far, the servers amazing and really reasonable price for the food and the area. Definitely enjoyed my visit to Chicago. Thank you to all of you and the Club Quarters at Michigan

My friend had eggs and French toast while I had the beet and burrata salad. Everything was perfect and a definite A+ for presentation! The waitress was extremely friendly and even accommodated my special coffee request : ) Look forward to going back on my next trip to Chicago!

Good food in restaurant attached to the Club Quarters. Unfortuantley, I had to practically send up a flare gun to get the staff to bring my check both nights I dined there.

Staying in Downtown / The Loop

Neighbourhood 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.
