What Insiders Are Saying
Bill and Giuliana Rancic force us to like them with excellent Italian food in a trendy setting.
Great personable server and the wine guy was great too! Everything we tried we loved!
Perfect service. Very attentive, and courses were timed just right. Really nice meal.
We really enjoyed the meal. The food was amazing, the value is excellent, the service awesome. Music was loud and the tables were WAY too close together.
Overall great. Just open up the space
Absolutely incredible service and atmosphere. Food was to die for- small dishes to share!
Food and service excellent as always .
Non-traditional Italian the food was excellent the server was very informative. The wine list could have had more selection of wines under $100.00 to choose from. The ambiance of the restaurant was pulsing and very chic. Would definitely visit again next time in Chicago.
The best pasta sauce! Very fun crowd, busy bar area. Can't wait to go back!!
Had a reservation yet had to still wait 30 minutes for the table. They didn’t seem to care that every reservation was waiting this long to be seated. Always happens here
EXCELLENT food, service and ambiance. Shane our server was AWESOME! Celebrated my birthday for the 4th year in a row at RPM and they always exceed my expectations.
Everything was great. Tables a little tight...hard to get up and leave or get into your seat at the 2 top we had. Very noisy
With business friends. Will definitely go back.
DELICIOUS FOOD served by a DEDICATED STAFF with a GRACIOUS DEMEANOR - four stars! I eat out regularly and know a stellar operation when I see it. This is it!
I will always recommend this restaurant after eating here this last trip. Food and service were excellent.
Visited Chicago and was able to book this restaurant a couple of days before. Food was great and the waiter made recommendations that turned out great. All in all a great night with business guests.
Amazing service and even more amazing food! May be the best meatball I have ever tasted!
Loved the smaller portion sizes so you could try more things!
This is truly one of my favorite restaurants in Chicago. I’ve been to rpm steak, rpm Italian DC, and so looking forward to the new locator opening soon. I recommend this restaurant to anyone that i know that will be visiting Chicago. I’ve celebrated my birthdays and special occasions In RPM Italian for the last 2 years, and they never disappoint.
Accommodating, server was very helpful in food choices. Great ambiance & food was delicious!
We were recommended this place and wanted to try it out. Food is good, portions I found it small.
An absolutely delightful experience (although the music is a bit cheesy). Dre was a phenomenal host! Delicious food and drinks with exceptional service
The food was amazing. Our server was not good. We are both 20 and since we didn’t order wine or drinks he didn’t care to come to our table and check up on us. I had to ask of the bussers to get me sugar for my iced tea. Also he charged us $16 for plain bruschetta without telling us the price until the check came. He dropped the check off and then it took him 15 minutes to come back and it was not even busy. Very disappointed in the service as I love this place and we were disregarded by our waiter. the sever said bye kiddos as we left....
The first time we went to RPM Italian was exceptional so the bar was high. This time didn't quite get all the way there. A big reason was that we got a a crappy table. I could've asked for a different one but we were hungry and thirsty! Our dinner was accompanied by clanging plates, silverware and glasses at the busser's station, which was annoying. Other than that, the food was mostly excellent, especially the pastas and scallops, but with the high prices, everything should be a 10, and the swordfish wasn't good. Service was as usual, excellent.
Excellent customer service. Food was delicious. Enjoyable evening.
Squid ink pasta is phenomenal. Service was great. They have excellent desserts.
Amazing food! Good service and a beautiful restaurant
Phenomenal meal & dining experience. The food quality, presentation, and taste exceeded expectations from appetizers, to bread, to pasta, entree, & dessert. The staff working in the kitchen seem to truly care about the product they are providing to the guests. The wait staff was attentive, even on a busy saturday night. My wife and I did find the music/noise to be a little loud for our liking and being in an intimate setting, but it did not take much away from the experience. I would highly recommend booking a table here and look forward to coming back with others.
Nice place for special occassions. Portions are pretty small for the price. Overall service was decent. I'm glad I tried it but don't know that I will go back. Drinks were great however.
Amazing atmosphere, service, food, and overall experience. This was a special treat to come here and would highly recommend! Thank you for a wonderful evening.
Wow, our waiter ordered every dish, and it was spectacular, carpaccio, meatballs, ribeye, carbonara, etc. A complete turnkey fine dining experience, it couldn’t have been better!
Very happening restaurant. Loved the decor. Food & service were excellent. 3 of us picked 3 pastas to share. All were very good but the lobster ravioli was outstanding. The Sommelier recommended a wine we all enjoyed!
Perfect in every possible way!
Great food, crowded atmosphere and very loud!
Let’s get real i went here because of Bill and Giulianna Rancic. The ambiance is amazing. We had Luke as a server, who was knowledgeable and fun, not stuffy like most higher end restaurants, great sense of humor. Only critic is for vegan options the dishes get very plain for the price, however the deep fried zucchini was killer and definitely a must try!!
Too noisy, like a club/bar scene. Service was slow and food was just okay!
The pasta was very good. The other courses were good. Server was very nice and professional.
We made a reservation weeks in advance yet when we arrived on time we had to wait 20 minutes for our table.
Excellent food and so flavourful! Would definitely recommend this!
Loved loved loved the place. I was craving Italian and came across RPM Italian, I had heard a lot of great things about RPM Steak, so I knew it would be a good, but it was better than good. Everything was amazing, the food, the service, the ambiance, the decor, I was just disappointed I didn't try it sooner. I will definitely be bringing everyone I know.
Always delicious and dependable. Ordered a few dishes to share and we devoured everything. Still dreaming about the mushroom truffle pizzette!! Service was excellent even when we sat chatting for a bit after our meal. Will be back again...and again...and again!
The atmosphere is really great. Decorating, tables, bathrooms, all top notch. The food was just OK. I had the special which was a mushroom and noodle dish. Nobody asked if I liked it. There were maybe 7 mushrooms and no flavor. But then again it was only 20.00. Wine pairing was perfect. Overall hit and miss.
