We ate lunch here. Everyone had a GREAT meal. Gnocchi, pasta, panini, and chicken--all excellently prepared and delicious. I wish we had room for dessert. I would definitely go back to this place to eat. Staff is very friendly.

I make a point to come to the Coco Pazzo Café every time I am in Chicago. While the location has moved, the food, service. and ambiance is as good as ever. I'll be back again. And again, and again.

Streeterville is where visitors head for play at Navy
Pier, a pseudo amusement park and development of
restaurants, shops, rides, and other activities.
You’ll find lots of action and excitement on the
docks. Along the pier, you’ll see the statue of the
captain for whom Streeterville is named. While you
enjoy your fair share of sightseeing at the pier, you
can also visit other popular attractions there such as
