Terzo Piano

Terzo Piano, located on the 3rd floor of the Modern Wing of the Art Institute of Chicago, is a must stop for lunch daily and Thursday dinner. It features the signature cuisine of Chef Tony Mantuano, who has been delighting Chicagoans for years at the four-star Italian restaurant, Spiaggia. The food is all fresh, local, organic and sustainably produced. In season, you may also dine al fresco on the covered piazza, while enjoying spectacular views of Millennium Park and the Chicago skyline.



Terzo Piano is open to the public without requiring admission to the Art Institute.



Guests may access the restaurant either via the Nichols Bridge which extends from Millennium Park and places you right at the restaurants entrance or off of the Monroe Drive entrance of Art Institute and take the elevator to the third floor

"After a very crowded viewing of Van Gogh's Bedrooms, Terzo Piano was the perfect respite. The arugula salad with smoked salmon was light and refreshing. The buttermilk-thyme biscuits were flaky and flavorful. Everyone else in our party had the brioche french toast, and loved it."

"I've eaten at Terzo Piano many times, which is why I would still recommend it in spite of this somewhat negative review. I look forward to a simple pasta dish and a glass of wine, but on this particular day, there was no pasta on the menu! When I inquired about this with the server, I was told that the pasta machine was broken. Since this was my first time there in about six months, I was crushed. I had developed an expectation of this meal: the pasta just perfectly al dente, the sauce beautifully smooth and creamy. But the only dish even approaching pasta (so: not really) was gnocchi. I ended up with a whitefish sandwich which, while good enough in its own way, was simply not what I'd been building for in my mind. Think about it: no pasta at an Italian restaurant. Couldn't they have borrowed someone else's pasta machine? Rented one? Stooped to (gasp!) use commercially bought pasta? But to have NO pasta was just unacceptable."

"Terzo Piano never really disapoints, although the menu at this last visit was a bit sparse. I wish restaurants, as a whole, and Terzo Piano, specifically, would understand that there are those of us who view lunch as more than just a sandwich or a salad. Putting together a three course meal can be challenging here. Glad to see that the smoked trout has a singular place on the menu now. We appreciated the kitchen splitting our lamb burger. Serice is always excellent and the wine list provides some interesting choices."

"Based on the restaurant description and a photo of an entree, were expecting an upscale dining experience, but what we got was average food and inferior service. The menu was limited, but my dining partner settled on a flatbread and I had a whitefish sandwich. There was nothing outstanding about either entree, and I was surprised to find out that the whitefish was heavily breaded and deep fried--I had expected something lighter. We also ordered some French fries, which we never received. We constantly had to seek out our waiter, who never stopped by to check on us, and we even had to flag down a different waiter once to get more water and a refill on our iced tea. Our waiter was very nice, but he was not attentive and hard to find. All in all, it was convenient to have an option in the building where we wanted to stay all day and we were prepared to pay for that convenience...it's just that for a total bill of $50 with no alcoholic beverages, we expected top-notch food and service."

"Some good food but some very questionable service. We even opted out of desert because we didn't want to wait an extra hour just to order the next course. There were only 5 tables being serviced, so we weren't asking for much."

"Had brunch on Sunday before visit to museum and restaurant does not match quality of the art institute. Service was very slow. More than ten minutes to get water service. Ordered quiche and server "warned" me it was served at room temperature. It again took a very long time for food to arrive (not sure why since it isn't even heated) and was not even as warm as room...it was cold and slimey and inedible. Server did the right thing and apologized and removed item from bill. I asked if they had a way to heat up the quiche and was told no. So it seems there is not an oven on property...which may explain why it takes so long for food to get out on floor. I don't think there is a proper kitchen at this restaurant. Food may be brought in from alternate location. Museum would do well to bring restaurant quality up to the same level as the rest of its offerings."
