    Food was by far one of the best Italian experiences we’ve had in the city. The pasta dishes were beautifully made and the sauces had a little bit of a spin on the traditional tastes which makes this place stand out. Not to mention the great service we had. Attentive but not smothering. Highly recommend.

    Overall really good experience. Positives: Great rice balls, filet mignon and side of potatoes. Do not miss the cheese stuffed bread service or the gnocco fritto. Negatives: There’s an artificial floral smell in the entrance and up the stairs to the dining area that’s off putting. Ordered a filet mignon but was brought lamb chops. While we waited for the correct meal to be prepared we had to ask for them to return the side of potatoes so they weren’t cold. I ate my meal alone while my husband waited.

    We had an incredible experience! Our waitress, April, described some of the fan favorites and her own for each course. She was so delightful and made our experience be even better because of her service. Then we hear it was her first night. She’s a keeper for sure! The food was absolutely delicious. When we first walked in to a dark restaurant with more modern music playing we were nervous. But it turned out to be a phenomenal experience. We highly recommend Adalina!

    Our server was kind and knowledgeable but brought us a different bottle of wine because the Gaja was unavailable. The replacement wine was cheaper ($91 instead of $126) but tasted it as well. We didn’t feel it was appropriate to send the wine back because there was nothing wrong with the wine except we didn’t care for it. The gnocco fritto was flat and unimpressive. The veal Parmesan chop was good. The overall food was solid but nothing memorable. With so many Italian restaurants (Ciccio Mio, Alla Vita, Nico Osteria, Osteria Langhe, Testaccio, Tortello, Segnatore, Acanto, Daisies, Gioia, Gibson’s Italia - all great Italian restaurants) especially near the Gold Coast, I would not recommend this one to anyone. I really wanted to like it.

    We sat on the patio outside and it was nice weather so that was perfect. The service was efficient and the manager made a point to stop by at the end and ask how everything was. The food was delicious, the drinks were too. Smaller portions than expected but still good nonetheless. The only thing that took away from the ambiance was the slew of people walking by on the sidewalk, some blasting music, etc. i thought it was really nice they paid attention to the birthday note I put in the reservation:) would definitely come back again

    We had an incredible view with window seats, the resturant decor was classy and the food really good (gnocci puffs with creamy ricotta and prosciutto, meatballs, spicy pasta with shrimp and tiramisu). What made the evening perfect was our waiter Hector and his sidekick Javier. I forgot just what perfect service looked like until last night. They were attentive without being overbearing, made great menu and wine suggestions and were just friendly and fun enough without being annoying. The food was really good but we'd come back ofr that type of service any day! Thanks team

    Very intrusive service, people wanting to take away dishes as we were still eating. Asparagus salad was limp green beans and few asparagus stalks (dressing was good though). Steak portion was generous but can’t say same for any of other dishes (octopus, asparagus salad, scallops). Seemed like they were trying to stretch ingredients due to the Father’s Day rush.

    Adalina ambiance is wonderful. Beautifully designed for luxury and comfort. The service is wonderful. However, I think brunch is overrated. Their wine list is very extensive. Pages long but only have 8 beers on the beer list. The food was excellent but they don’t offer their full dessert menu which a little disappointing. Dinner might be a better time to attend.

    we were celebrating our parents 40th. everything was wonderful, the only thing I was disappointed with was that I had written this in the notes if we could have something to signify the day and nothing was done as a celebratory gesture regarding the anniversary. (ie a note written in icing or a note)

    From the moment we pulled up to the curb, the host and the valet came out to help us. My husband is using a walker as a result of back surgery. We were helped to the elevator and everyone was so friendly and welcoming. Our server, Nina, was perfect. She was patient, knowledgeable, and you could tell she loves what she is doing. The food was excellent, beautifully presented, and generously portioned. We were there for Brunch/Lunch, and can’t wait to come back for dinner.

    We had to wait 45 minutes for our table but they comped a round of drinks and a free appetizer so fair. The food was fabulous, very different and super tasty. The staff were delightful and efficient, all of them. Only downside was the bathrooms, unisex and large so slow turnover with couples and friends going in together, but the unisex bathroom is in right now I guess. Honestly will probably try and go back next week while still in Chicago for a conference.

    The lamb chops with pistachio crust were outstanding!! Also ordered the charred octopus which was tender and tasty, but we wish the plate had more octopus and fewer potatoes. The cacio e pepe arancini was also great. Finished the night with the dark chocolate torta and we were blown away! The Cherry Stracciatella was the perfect balance… Highly recommend!

    The food at Adalina was very good. We started with the seafood tower. The oysters, shrimp, crab and lobster were good (nothing special) and the sauces were tasty and unique. Surprisingly, we loved the little puffs with caviar on top. The arancini were delicious and creamy, the gnocco frito was very good, especially the whipped ricotta cheese, but the prosciutto was sliced too thickly. Next, we ordered three pastas, 2 salads and the veal parmesan (there were 6 of us!). The tortellini and lumache were amazing! Both had really nice flavor combinations and very original. The gnocchi was too heavy for me and I would not order that again. The veal parmesan is huge and delicious, pounded thinly with a nice crisp breading and plenty of yummy cheese on top. That was a big hit. Everyone really liked the asparagus salad and the truffle caesar salad. Overall, we had a great time, but there were a few hiccups. When we arrived we were told to head upstairs to the bar while we waited for our table to be ready. The bartender was very unfriendly and had a constant scowl on his face. They also do not stock Tito's vodka which surprised me. The dining room is quite large and it was packed from end to end. The noise level was very loud and we practically had to scream at each other to be heard. Adalina is extremely expensive, be prepared to pay at least $200/person. I would love to go back for the food, but I do not want to deal with that crowd and noise!

    I had my 31st birthday dinner here on a Thursday night with a few girlfriends. We had a wonderful experience with great food and drinks, good service and overall nice ambience. There was also reasonably priced valet service (a huge plus for me, given the location) but some were still able to find street parking close by. I'll definitely be back some time soon

    This was our first time here and it was amazing, start to finish. The octopus was definitely the star of the show, but I honestly think you can’t go wrong. The espresso martini should not be missed. We also had the gnocco frito and asparagus salad, both delicious. As entrees we had the champanelle which was so fresh and the branzino, also incredible. We finished with the banana chocolate cake gelato which was just right. Delicious. You must request Chad to be your server if you want the full service experience. He is top notch.
