    Ordered sea bass and got? Not sea bass. Why do so many restaurants lie about the fish they serve? Stick to the pasta.

    All the food was excellent but the pasta was particularly excellent. The wine list has many excellent choices and while not inexpensive, bottles are not overly inflated prices for the restaurant world The services was thoughtful and helpful in providing information about the dishes. Overall, an excellent dinner choice.

    Great atmosphere, wonderful food and the service was possibly the best that we have had in Chicago. Importantly, the tables are spread out so you do feel like you have room and people walking between tables give you plenty of space.

    Coco Pazzo is a Chicago classic. We have not been there in years and there’s a reason why - it’s not the Coco Pazzo it once was in its day.

    Our experience for dinner was really a major disappointment. The server, Sarah, was the only exceptional part of the experience. The food was mediocre, the portions small, and the value was subpar. My entrée was a big plate of rice with a 2 inch softshell crab on top. In other words I was paying an entrée price for a plate of rice. My husband ordered the mixed seafood grill and was also very disappointed. The fish was dry and the calamari was tough. Portions were extremely small. It’s a shame because Coco Pazzo used to be a favorite.

    Fabulous meal. Haven’t had risotto this good since a trip to Rome. Unique and tasty cold soup - not vichyssoise. Exceptional wait staff. Friendly and attentive. Very pleasant atmosphere. Only concern was the woman checking people in for reservations was a little grumpy with customers. Don’t know why. We were early and the restaurant was not yet at capacity. But she was curt with a few customers.

    The maitre d gave you that I’m very important and more important than my patrons. Place was empty and he sat us at the worst table in the the place next to the prep station of plates and water even thought we had a reservation. We asked to be moved and after a long discussion they moved us twice. Once at our request and the other at theirs because they put us at the wrong table. I was expecting the place to get crowded and it never did. Without that experience I would have given it 5 stars because the waitress was awesome, my water and wine glass was never empty and the food was fantastic.

    We hadn’t been back since October 2020 due to Covid. We were thrilled to be there again. The Fiori di Zucca stuffed with ricotta. were delicious! The arugula & artichoke salad as good as we remembered it. My entree, Melanzane alla Parmigiana was a new item on the menu (to me) & it was amazing! The presentation was creative & made me want to taste it immediately!! And the best of all was the Fondente di Ciccolato which was as good as it’s always been. We missed Sergio though!! ❤️❤️
