Italian | Lincoln Park, Chicago

The food and experience at Sapori Trattoria were excellent. Both of our entrees were delicious and came in more than ample portions. The service was very attentive, but not overbearing, and because it was my wife's birthday, they gave us a delicious dessert as well! We were seated in the back, which was much quieter than the front and I'd definitely prefer to be there the next time we dine here again, as I could see it getting moderately loud up front where it's more crowded. I'd certainly recommend Sapori Trattoria to a friend. With so many options in Chicago, we rarely go back to the same place twice, but we'll almost certainly be back - probably more than once! More

After my first trip to Italy in November, I was convinced that I would never find a true authentic Italian restaurant in Chicago. WOW! Riccardo Trattoria is that place. Small, lively, friendly and attentive service, and the food is AMAZING! I had the Branzino and it was so fresh and light. It pretty much melted in my mouth. I will definitely be back. Next time I am taking my friends that went to Italy with me so they can re-imagine themselves back in Roma and Florenza. More

Our dining experience was very good. This was the second time we had been there in as many months and were delighted both times. There were four of us, each ordering a different entree. Everyone loved their dish! (I really don’t understand the negative reviews on Open Table!) I wish they had beer on tap but their offerings are fine! Definitely will be back, especially in the summer when they will be serving on the outdoor patio. More

Was a good but not great experience. We did Omakase and some courses were great while others were just OK. Must say the cuts and the freshness of the fish is better than I have seen elsewhere. Also one of the reasons you do omakase is to be able to interact with the chef. I am sure the Chef tried but we were not able to very communicate very effectively. All in all we enjoyed but thought it was underwhelming for $150 meal. We will be back but next time we will do alacarte More

The bottomless mimosa brunch was a great price and the food was wonderful. My only complaint was how slow the waiter was. He rarely checked back in with us and we were not able to get the most out of our bottomless mimosas. We asked numerous times for another carafe but never got it. Also note that they have a stay-time if 90 minutes so whether or not you want the bill, they will give it to you after 90 minutes. It was pretty empty at the point of us getting the bill but we wanted to stay and order more. We felt very ignored and unwelcome at this point so we left to go somewhere else with better service.

Our server greeted us with a smile and was very friendly with a nice spirit. She took our order immediately. The food came out fairly quickly. It was very tasty. Our server checked on us after we took a bite and asked if we needed anything. I ordered a chicken burger and my husband ordered a bigger better burger. We both enjoyed our meals and would recommend it to others. Overall, great customer service on a Friday evening. More
