This restaurant is a favorite of my husband. A great Italian restaurant in a old rail car! In operation since 1992 it is in the heart of downtown Chicago! Great location and wonderful Italian food. I had shrimp with linguine with a spicy sauce. It was outstanding and an extremely generous portion size, much more than I could eat! My... More

I almost hate to let people know about this gem hidden away at the edge of the loop but Tutto's deserve praise. We go to Chicago at least once a year for a medical meeting and we usually save Tutto's for our last evening. We know we can count on it to be charming, relaxing and a sure bet for... More

Discovered this restaurant out on a lunch-hour walk, so my husband and I dined there on a Wednesday evening before seeing Cirque Toruk at the United Center. Boy did we get it right! Attentive staff, delicious food and who can resist dining and taking selfies in a train car?! Definitely yet another favorite experience here in our own home town.

This place is charming and unique! I love coming here and wish I came more often every time I'm here!! I had the salmon with bruschetta tomatoes and avocado. I loved it. Has a bit of a spice to it so if u don't like spice try something else. My husband had a shrimp pasta. The shrimp was huge and... More

This restaurant was a short walk around the corner from hotel, so I was please to find the hockey game on at the bar, local draft beers, and some good Italian food.

Tutto Italiano appeals to the business lunch crowd downtown. That means that in the evening they are very under patronized. This is a shame, because the food is excellent! It's a little difficult to get to, and I don't know if there's parking anywhere nearby, but since we live in the South Loop it doesn't make any difference. We've usually... More

This restaurant is average among mom and pop Italian joints. Tonight there was no energy. Probably because they were slow. Quality was good, service above average, excitement from staff, atmosphere, and menu very average. If your hungry this place will fill you up. If your a foodie this is not as good as many other places on town for Italian.... More

It is a nice Fall like afternoon and I am itching to go to a nice restaurant in the loop area bulls eye I have found the place. I have Groupon today which makes it a nice affordable experience. It is right across public transportation which makes it even sweeter! The CTA station is just barely right across the street.... More

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.
