Disappointed in the food, Steak Diane was not tender as it should have been for $41. And the lasagna was ok, I wouldn’t go back. Fish was good. Wine pours are very small. Our waiter was great but busy busy 😬😞

Great food, we had chicken vesuvio and the Calabrese Pork Chops, both fantastic. The calamari appetizer was the bomb!

We were a group of 6 with 5:30 reservations. It was a centrally located Italian restaurant for all of us. We really had a wonderful time visiting. We were never rushed. Our server Brian was new and went out of his way to be sure we had everything we needed. We had a round table in the corner which was great for all the talking we did.
The only problem is the food is just average. It may be just how the chef fixes the dishes but on one thought it was above average.

The food quality on this trip and the last was poor. The recipes were different and they didn't taste that good. Very disappointed with the Neapolitan Salad. Different and wouldn't order it again.

This is a favorite for us and our close friends. Never disappoints. Dined this time to celebrate a friend's birthday. The evening was very enjoyable due to the great wait staff and quality of food (and the portions are substantial). Their Eggplant Napoleon is unique and a real treat. There was a mix of pasta, seafood and steak for the dinner entrees... all were tasty and well prepared.

Sent my steak back 4 times and it still wasn’t right. My aunt and uncle felt obligated to wait for me and so it ruined everyone’s meal. The manager was rude after my steak had been sent back twice he brought out a well done steak when I had asked for medium. He never apologized and just looked annoyed. After the fourth sent back steak I just decided to try and eat the rare one that they brought and it was horrible. I will def never come back. I head Chicago prime steakhouse is great avoid Chicago prime Italian at all costs

6:45 reservations, seated at 7:30. Had trouble finding my reservation when checking in and at 20 min check in. I think that is why the long wait. Many seated before us. Seated at the worst table in the house, right next to kitchen door with traffic and a look into kitchen.

Waitress recovered the experience. She was great. Food was good, long wait for food. Don’t delay ordering when you sit. Food a little over priced.

We decided to try this restaurant because someone said it was good, and we were lucky to get a reservation on Valentine’s Day. Our server was very nice but my food for $25 bowl of pasta was cold and came out wrong. The food is not good for what we paid. Someone asked me what they could do to make my experience better and I said I’ll take another drink and it was on the bill. Which was surprising to me. Would not go back. I would rather spend that kind of money at wildfire where you always have great food

Food was great, wait time was not too bad either. The service wasn’t the best, we were never asked how our food was, took about 30min from the time our dinner plates got picked up to when we were offered a dessert menu.

The tables were rocking and the chairs were very poor quality. They were super lightweight and our coats tipped our chairs over. There was no coat check offered either or racks seen from our table. The Valentine’s Day specials only had one Italian plate and even then who goes to Chicago Prime ITALIAN only to have cheese ravioli. The other two options London broil or salmon made me think I was at the steakhouse. Food could have been better prepared. The table and restaurant was clean and the service was great but everything else was horrible. I would not come back.

NIce Italian dinner with option for steaks, chops and seafood. I had the seafood carbanara and it was outstanding. One thing to watch is there is a Chicago Prime Steak house in Schaumburg. Some of my party google and went to the wrong place.
