With decades in the family restaurant business, Dario Vullo has brought his family's legacy to the United States to share the great traditions of food in Italy to Chicago with the help of his fiancé and co-owner, Amy Yetasook. Amy is a newly proclaimed Chicagoan and med student studying to become a surgeon.

Executive Chef/brother Alessio Vullo and restaurant namesake Nando (a dignified Italian dachshund) complete the restaurant family. Chef Alessio holds the Vullo family secrets, instructing the team every morning in making fresh pasta, breads, and desserts to the highest Italian standards.

We hope you will stop in and experience our cozy Italian world.

Love, Dario and Amy (owners)

Great food and ambience. The owner made us feel at home and we cannot wait to go back. The lobster and crab ravioli was excellent.

Went for restaurant week after viewing menu online and excited and had already picked out my choices. When we arrived it was a different menu with 3 courses (not 4cas advertised) and the dishes I had wanted were not on it. Seafood lovers would LOVE, but I don’t eat seafood so options were limited if doing pre-fix. (So sad gnocchi was taken off)


Highlights
-desserts were awesome (don’t have full choice from menu) cannoli were some of the best I’ve ever had! Table also had gelato and tiramisu which were excellent

-appetizers- recommend arancini and burrata salad

- entrees- ok, options we wanted taken off menu

-service good
-wine great
- would go again and try regular menu. Authentic and good quality meal

I would’ve liked for my husbands birthday to be celebrated. I did specify the occasion on my reservation but due to the night being busy, I understood. The food and service was excellent. We will be returning very soon.

Super disappointed, especially in the service, which by the end of the meal was nonexistent. Long, long waits in between courses. Sat us at cramped table right by door. Not impressed.

Great neighborhood Italian place! We went for the first time during restaurant week. Our server was friendly and knowledgeable about the wine and dinner menu. Great for a date or casual dinner, but the place is actually a lot smaller than I was expecting! If you want to make sure you don't have to wait, I would make a reservation even on a week night.

Not our 1st visit or our last. This is a charming, local establishment with delicious food. Some favorites are the arancini, calamari fritti, pizzaccia, and gnocchi. Yum!

We enjoyed Nando Milano so much. My husband and I agree it might be the best Italian restaurant we've been to in Chicago. The food is very authentic, and much attention is paid to detail in the recipes the chef has developed. Service is very friendly, though a little slow, although we came on a very busy Monday night during Restaurant Week - so we'll excuse the minor delays. The room is small, and seating is very tight. But the food makes it all worth it.

Went here for Restaurant Week. While the food was good, the restaurant pulled the classic bait and switch. The Restaurant Week menu that was posted online showed a 4 course meal, with various options from each course to choose from. When we got to the restaurant the chef had combined two courses into one which was disappointing and made the “deal” not as appealing. Food was good, but again the deal we were expecting didn’t happen.
