RPM Italian Ratings and Reviews
I've been wanting to go here for a while ...
I've been wanting to go here for a while. My sister and I came here for dinner after shopping downtown. Everything was great! We arrived a little early for our reservation and were immediately seated. The waitress was very helpful and made some awesome suggestions. The food arrived quickly and tasted amazing! We shared 2 appetizers and 2 entrees and everything was better than the next and to top it off the dessert was to die for! I seriously can't wait to come back to try different options.

We had a reservation and waited about 10 minutes to be seated, which is good on a Saturday night in Chicago. I thought it was a trendy place. Loved the appetizers we ordered (Ricotta and Bruschetta). Brussel sprout salad was spicy but good. It should have mentioned that on the menu but it was not. Pasta dishes were very tasty. I had the seafood risotto which was very good. Overall I thought it was not overly expensive and very good. I would definitely recommend it.

Great experience. Went here for the fist time to celebrate our engagement. We received a free prosecco toast. The service and food were outstanding, my water glass was never empty. We started with garlic bread, which was great. I had the best chicken parm I have ever had and my date had bucatini. Ending with cheesecake which was delicious. 10/10

Got in a bit early for a reservation which was great. Awkward holding big menus all through the appetizer course, drinks were slow to arrive.Shared the brussels sprouts salad and chopped salad, both were OK. Everyone that ordered spaghetti and meatballs were very happy, really enjoyed their entrée.

Almost didn't return to this place because the last time the service was not good, but this time our server was outstanding!
She made us feel welcomed and not overly rushed.
She definitely made this experience a very good one.

Have wanted to go there for a year now, and finally back to Chicago and had a chance too. Appetizers were overcooked (fried olives & truffle garlic bread). Prosciutto Tortilloni was ALL black pepper, could not taste anything but pepper. Husbands Cavatelli pasta was over-cooked as well and more mushy than anything. So very disappointed.

We always go to RPM when we are visiting Chicago. This time we went for lunch for the first time on Sunday. It's much quieter during lunch but typically noise level is moderate during dinner time but still able to carry a conversation. We had Alex as our server and gave fantastic service. Food is always prepared perfectly. Carbonara was served table side with the egg yolk mixed in front of us and stirred. Ambiance is always cool with a chic vibe. I always love the music they play. Never a disappointment at RPM. They treat their patrons very well.

Avoid the white truffled risotto special for $55. It pretentiously arrived with 2 servers - 1 to hold the plate of truffles and 1 to shave a very tasteless truffle onto a very ordinary risotto. Disappointing. The server never once inquired about our satisfaction with the meal.

I was very happy with the modern yet cozy environment. The noise level was not bad at all although we ate early - 5 PM on a Saturday.
Service: Quick and accommodating service. Easy valet as well. $15 for valet is much cheaper than parking garages nearby. Waiter was very knowledgeable and friendly.
Food: Cheese and salumi plate was very good, highly recommended. This is a restaurant made for sharing plates of food. Did not try the steak but was impressed by the flavors of the several pasta dishes we tried. If you like whiskey drinks, try the Autumn Sour. Generous portion sizes, especially for dishes meant to be shared.
Value: It was quite reasonable for the level of service and the quality of the food...I've certainly paid more for a much less enjoyable experience.
Overall: A great place to eat before a night out. Would visit again.

Outstanding with one objection. The drink service was incredibly slow to start with restaurant capacity at approximately 30 percent . Once the place got busier they were a little more expeditious. Food was outstanding there were 5 of us, small issue calamari was dry. Pastas so fresh!!! The staff was incredibly accommodating. Visually the restaurant is SO clean and cool! Can't wait to go back. Thanks guys! Oh yes, get desserts

This was our first visit to RPM. It was very noisy but we were seated at a table in the side room. We had plenty of room and could hear each other. The food was delicious. My husband especially enjoyed his meal. He had the lobster and pasta diavolo. He couldn't say enough about it. I had the spaghetti and meatball. Spaghetti was great not crazy about the meatball. It was large but hard and not very flavorful

Have eaten here many times. Always top notch service and absolutely delicious food. Everything on the menu is memorable and the seasonal cocktails are great. Our favorite place to take friends and family visiting Chicago!

We have been to RPM several time and every time it has pleased us. However, this time the biggest disappointment was our server. He was so not friendly, did not give us enough time to make our decision nor did provide any good recommendations.
My husband had called ahead to tell them it was our anniversary dinner and considering that would be nice if he didn't rush.
RPM we really want to come back but hoping for a better pleasant dinner next time
