Reviewed 25 August 2017

My husband and I were in the Chicago area for a wedding. I chose this bed and breakfast strictly based on the positive reviews from TripAdvisor and I and so thankful I did!! This was the perfect "home away from home". Cathy is absolutely wonderful! From the moment we walked in until it was time to leave, she was so friendly and helpful. She is also an amazing chef! My husband and I loved waking up every morning and eating whatever she and Martina (also very sweet!) had fixed for breakfast. Always delicious! Cathy helped us with places to eat and things to do while in Chicago. Our room was fabulous! Very nice room. I loved the way it was decorated. I would highly recommend this B&B, and if we are ever in the Chicago area again, we will definitely stay here!!

What a wonderful B&B! Cathy was amazing and very accommodating. Loved the waffles (batter is ready in fridge to pour and go) and fresh fruit to add in the mornings. There were yummy fresh baked cookies every afternoon. We stayed in the Venetian Suite. The room has a private entry to the hot tub and terrace. This is a great place to stay in Chicago!

"Make yourselves at home" is an understatement when referring to Cathy's welcoming personality at Vila d'Citta in Lincoln Park, Chicago. We have been repeat,repeat, repeat guests and have stayed in most of the suites. All of which are impeccably decorated in their "themes". Breakfasts are absolutely delicious and effortlessly prepared. We have never in our years of visits experienced anything other than perfection.
Thank You Cathy, and your wonderful, attentive staff.

Room Tip: All suites are very comfortable, anything requested will certainly be addressed.

Villa d'Citta was a gorgeous venue for our sisters, daughters, nieces trip to Chicago! Our accommodations as well as the common areas were fancy yet homey, immaculate, and well-decorated. The elevator was a huge plus, and we appreciated the stately and gated property, although its location, Lincoln Park def didn't need special security!
Cathy was very respondent and easy to contact by phone, email, and text while planning our arrangements. Upon our arrival, she showed us around the first floor as a proud home-owner would, pointing out what amenities the fully stocked kitchen had and what goodies we could help ourselves to (cookies/sweets), wine, italian cheeses, meats, peppers/olives, bread, and Panini maker. We felt as if we were in Italian Heaven
Well, ALL that was wonderful changed and even intensified throughout our weekend due to Cathy's strange, bossy, and intrusive behavior towards us! She was watching everything we did while we were sitting in the kitchen drinking our own wine that we bought and brought in, while enjoying some of her goodies. We lit a candle, she came in and told us not to do that. We used plates that we THOUGHT were OK to use, and she immediately came into the kitchen and chastised us for using incorrect plates! She was watching our each and every move on her computer while she sat at her desk in the living room!!! We cleaned up after ourselves, did NOT have the TV on loud, we were not loud or by any means unruly, but her demeanor changed literally overnight.
Her aggressive and not guest friendly interactions put such a damper on our time there, that we found excuses not to hang in the gorgeous villa, and spend our down time elsewhere.
Such an abrupt and shocking change in behavior from our host was nothing we had ever expected, nor ever experienced throughout our travels!
Many friends who have traveled to Chicago have asked us for recommendations about luxurious places to stay, and we were extremely hesitant to recommend Villa d'Citta SPECIFICALLY and ONLY because of Cathy.
Her over-bearing and unkind acts of surveillance for unapparent and undisclosed reasons really turned us off.!
It is a shame that one person's actions could change and alter a weekend getaway as Cathy did.

Stayed: December 2016, travelled with family

My husband and I have stayed at Villa D' Citta several times over the past few years and cannot wait to return. We love going into Chicago for many reasons (as there is so much to see and do) but we also just want to relax and unwind. Villa D' Citta is amazing, we have stayed in the Milan and Grand Tuscan rooms and love them both. It is located in a great area, within walking distance to so many good restaurants, has endless delivery options if you want to stay in, walking distance to Depaul University as well as the zoo (free), great parks, neighborhoods, not a far run from downtown, great shopping and the list goes on. Cathy the innkeeper is amazing, she is very accommodating, she is always available to answer questions or make a recommend. Cathy makes breakfast each morning which is delicious and never the same. The Villa kitchen is always well stocked with fruit, fresh baked cookies, yogurt for parfaits, cold beverages, as well as great Italian bread, cheeses and meats. We feel very much at home there and always hate to leave, looking forward to our next visit!
