I had been to the sister restaurant a couple blocks away several times and was disappointed when I walked there to see a sign they had moved here. But I was not disappointed when I came. Salad and pizza. Awesome. Would repeat. Hope I can.

Everything we ordered was amazing. Seriously. Also, everyone we encountered on the wait staff was friendly and attentive. Hot tip: the Spaghetti AOP is especially fantastic.

Everyone in the neighborhood was sad to see Tre Soldi go away and be replaced by their sister restaurant which used to be at St. Clair and Ontario. However, we didn't need to worry at all. Marco and Jack did an excellent job of merging the two restaurants, merging the menus and we were very pleased with our meal and... More

One of our favorite things about Coco Pazzo Cafe is the atmosphere. The entire restaurant is covered with Modiglianiesque portraits of Italian life. There is a large table of antipasti where the waiters build you a feast to start your meal. The food is exceptionally fresh and well prepared. The bartenders are great and mix a mean cocktail. Lots of... More

This very nice restaurant .has been at this location for many years and may be moving due to loosing their lease.. Great service and location. We love their Linguini Vongole (baby clams) on a wine wine sauce, the best one in the city. Will miss the Modigialis on the walls too.

We have eaten here over the years and have always had a great meal. The ambience with the Modigliani wall coverings are predictably a great experience. Reasonably priced Italian restaurant lost their lease and will be moving Great meal and service. My only complaint is a $30 corkage fee which is way high for Chicago

Staying in Streeterville

Neighbourhood Profile
Streeterville
Streeterville is where visitors head for play at Navy Pier, a pseudo amusement park and development of restaurants, shops, rides, and other activities. You’ll find lots of action and excitement on the docks. Along the pier, you’ll see the statue of the captain for whom Streeterville is named. While you enjoy your fair share of sightseeing at the pier, you can also visit other popular attractions there such as the Chicago Children’s Museum and the Chicago Shakespeare Theater. Off the pier you’ll find more restaurants from low-cost pubs to high-end establishments. Arts and culture aficionados should be sure not to miss the Museum of Contemporary Art.
