Il Sogno Ratings and Reviews

We have dined here many times and enjoyed it very much. This evening however was only fair. We were seated in a corner near a cold draft ( but to be fair we didn't ask to be moved). Our entrees were mediocre (pork loin and rotolo formaggi). We were surprised because every other meal here has been very good. Maybe it was an off night, but it's the first time we have felt the food was not worth the money spent. We will go back to see if this was just a fluke.

The restaurant was beautiful and the food was pretty good, but the service was terrible. The waiters and busboys literally stood along a wall watching you and waiting to swoop in, which, you'd think would be excellent service. However, it was really awkward to have 8 guys just staring at you. Additionally, they rushed us through dinner so fast that it was a joke. They collected our plates before we were even finished! Reservations were for 6, and they had our check on the table at 6:32. It was supposed to be a classy night out with fine food and wine with a few friends. Instead, we ended up downstairs at Kilwin's chocolates and ice cream where they were more than happy to let us sit and chat for a while.

The staff makes this neighborhood gem a standout. Solid menu, with lots of classics and a few surprises to keep things interesting. I'm still thinking about the gnocchi with sausage and peas in a gorgeous cream sauce.

We walked to the restaurant for my birthday. Everyone was so friendly. The pumpkin ravioli and Osso Buco were amazing. I had a 20 year old port that was unbelievable. We had never been there before by will return again soon.

First time here.
When we arrived we felt like our waitress was in bad mood and was annoyed by us. I was not happy because we came here to celebrate my b- day.
But after while everything changed and we had great service actually from more servers!
Food was delicious! Really tasted as home cooking.
I had risotto with swordfish really good.
All my friends enjoys their meal and the atmosphere.

The service was impeccable. The ambiance was great. The food was good but not the best I've ever had. My dish was lobster and shrimp over pasta. There was a lot of oil on the bottom of my plate and I had to salt the pasta as the sauce was a bit bland. But the seafood tasted amazing. The caesar salad was amazing, as was the warm bread served before the meal. I would go back but would order a different main dish for sure.

Food was outstanding as was our server, Rosa! She made some wonderful recommendations and all four of us were very pleased with our choices. The cannelloni was excellent as was the short rib pasta and cavatelli. We will definitely return to Il Sogno.

This was my second visit to Il Sogno and it did not disappoint. My out of town visitors agreed with me that the food was terrific. All the food was delicious and hot. I will definitely be back to try out other things on the menu but the glazed pork tenderloin is tough to beat.

We chose il sogno on a whim and really enjoyed it. Our service was great, it's an interesting space, very modern feel. Plenty of choices on the menu and we were pleased to find out if was half price bottles of wine night.

Our reservation was at 7 and we have ere made to wait a half hour for a table... isn't being seated right away the purpose of a reservation? Does Il Sogno not realize their bread and butter isn't the 17 year olds who go there for homecoming but the 50 year olds who go out with their friends?

Dinner was great. We sat on the rooftop and had a great meal of stuffed eggplant, braciole and lobster cappellacci. Marco, our server, was outstanding! We just got back from Italy and food rivaled what we ate there!!!

Custom cocktails and atmosphere were excellent, but food was just blah. Didn't really have any flavor to our dishes. We spent $100 for two of us, as did the couple we were with. I'd expect a good meal for that. Disappointed.

My wife and I had been to Italy the year before to celebrate our 30th anniversary; so on our 31st anniversary we stayed in town for Italian food. The bottom line for me is that there was no "Wow" factor during the meal time. The food and service were good but nothing out of the ordinary for the high end price. It's not that there was anything wrong; I just didn't feel anything special about the place.

The food and wine were excellent. This restaurant is on the second floor. We sat by a window where we could see downtown Wheaton, which was fun. Overall, this was a great experience and I would recommend this restaurant to friends.

This restaurant always has great food. I have never had a bad meal here. Nice second floor view of downtown historic Wheaton . Has an elevator to the second floor where the restaurant is located so it is handicap accessible and has a third-floor open air restaurant or a place to have a drink or two. Love it!

Disappointed that they would not serve coffee on the roof dining area. We were told that it was too dangerous for the waiters or bussers to carry hot coffee up there, so we suggested that they get some carafes or insulated coffee pots so that the diners can enjoy a cup of coffee with their dinner or dessert.
This was disappointing for one of our diners especially, since she always has coffee. They said they would serve cappuccino or espresso but not coffee! How strange! Wonder how they are able to carry bowls of hot soup upstairs but not cups of hot coffee. Guess they'd rather just sell more expensive espresso and cappuccino. Guess we'll think twice before returning.
Not a pleasant experience. Plus, the quality of the food has diminished from our previous dining experiences there.

Every dinner we've had at this restaurant has been wonderful. The service has been very friendly and attentive and the food has been very special. I would not go here during prefixe dinner menus for dinner, such as on New Year's Eve. Our one and only experience during a special event was not very good and we felt very rushed by our servers to leave the table immediately after eating. Will go back again and again!
