Upscale Italian prepared with style and flair. Pleasant ambience. Generally knowledgeable servers. Dined there many times and never had a bad meal.

The service was excellent. Our server happened to be the chef's wife who is also a chef. Her suggestions were on the mark. The food was scrumptious - the best bass I have had in ages.

We were actually at Borolo's for a wake a few week ago. There were 20 of us in the party hosted by my son-in-law. The food was very good, not the best I have had but very acceptable. The atmosphere was very elegant. We had good service for such a large group. The food is priced in the range I... More

While the menu offers a variety of traditional Italian foods, the specials were even more interesting, putting interesting flavors together with the traditional. I had the noche with bacon, and it was very good. The restaurant also has a good selection of wines.

/Users/tom/Desktop/Barolo's.pdf Poor food . Went with another couple . Two of the orders were not what we ordered. A third order did not have the kind of pasta ordered. Our guest had a red "hot" sauce" on her manicotti. Two of us sampled her dish and agreed it was like a "latin" hot sauce. A letter has been mailed to... More

As a local, I've visited here about 4 or 5 times since they opened. It is pretty inside and the service is always pretty good. They make it a point to explain every time that they have their own independent chef who kind of does things on a whim and the menu is different often. A few times they brought... More

We chose this restaurant because it was close to our evening program and we had a free dessert coupon from our hotel. What a surprise! Portions are generous so don't be surprised if you have no room for dessert. The risotto with chicken and portabella mushrooms was so good I couldn't keep my date off my plate. The service staff...

This was my second time here, and it was just as good the second time! Both times I got one of the (fish) specials, and both times they were very good. They have nice portion sizes for the price. The bread was a little bland, but that was free, so I can't say much about that. Also, I had the... More

First and foremost, if you are looking for a real sit-down restaurant, amazing and original food, excellent service and atmosphere...Barolo is the best restaurant in Joliet. I know. I have lived here for over 12 years. However, Joliet is full of burger joints, chicken shops, beef & sausage places, taco trucks, etc. In my opinion, when I look at Tripadvisor,... More
