    This is a very good place to meet for a business lunch, or a “friends’ get-together”. The food is great (we had carpaccio, caprese salad, huge cheeseburger, sweet potato fries, and spumoni). The service is top-notch! Professional staff that know when to be there and when to leave us alone. The atmosphere is pure authentic Chicago, new school service and food with old school quality. Highly recommend!

    The food was excellent. Fried calamari was very tender, both the Caesar and wedge salads delicious. The filet mignon was cooked perfectly and tender. The tiramisu for dessert was delicious. There really was no ambiance, if you consider many tables crammed into a small room nice ambiance that is what you get. It was noisy. Waiter was good and attentive.

    Everything was fantastic! We were visiting Chicago and it was my birthday, which I happened to mention in the reservation notes. We were greeted by friendly staff who made a point to wish me a happy birthday. Our waiter, Antonio was helpful answering questions and knew the menu in detail. We started with some cocktails which were expertly mixed. The food was unbelievable! I had salmon which was perfectly grilled with the skin on (my favorite). For a side, I chose the gnocchi and meatballs. Wow. The gnocchi stuck to the roof of my mouth in the most deliciously textured bite of pillowed potato I’ve ever experienced. The sauce was simple but refined. There was plenty, but I wanted more. My wife had chicken limone over mashed potatoes and she loved it. The chicken was exceptionally tender. For dessert, I had an artisan level cappuccino and a piece of tiramisu that was delicious and rich, but somehow so light it felt like it could rise off the plate. This was the type of meal that you plan a trip around. The floor manager, Angelo, was personable and made a point to visit our table to check in. I can’t wait to come back to Chicago!

    Celebrating a birthday and this was a fantastic place to do it. The service was great, the food was some of the best ever. We shared the breaded calamari, and a wedge salad. Both were really good. For our main, I had the stuffed pasta and a side of meatballs (best I’ve ever tasted). Since we were celebrating my birthday, we shared the Old School chocolate cake, it was huge. Our son had the berry cake which was awesome, as well. Overall, we had a great experience. I highly recommend it,

    Didn’t get the dry aged ribeye, so maybe that one is worth the price, but the regular ribeye is far too expensive. It was well cooked and juicy, but I’ve had the same quality at other places for a lot less: Tortellini soup, garbage salad, side of meatballs and the Manhattan’s were delicious. I love this place and will be back, just won’t be getting the regular ribeye.

    Fernando provided outstanding service. The meal was perfect. We both ordered steak. An 18oz bone-in strip for me and a 14oz boneless strip for my wife. Both were excellent and cooked perfectly. Pasta sides of pappardelle bolognese and arrabiata were both excellent as well. My wife loved the limoncello spritz she ordered off the specialty drink menu. The secret to this one was the house-made limoncello. It reminded me of the bright concentrated limoncellos in Italy, not the cloyingly sweet stuff you find in the states. Chocolate cake for desert was the perfect finish to this memorable meal. We arrived a little early for a 5:30 reservation and the valet was not available. The manager himself took my keys and said he would take care of it which he did. How is that for service. I could not be more pleased with the entire evening.

    I had heard so much about G&G prior to going! It was just "OK" in our opinions. Neat, old place that's cool to see. There were 4 of us dining. My friend's housemade pasta was mushy in his Paste e Vongole. My pork chop was ok. Had better at lesser expensive places. The other two in our group got Chicken Parm. It's was average. Expensive and everything is al a carte. Just throw on some broccoli on the plate with the pork chop or steaks....they certainly cost enough. I'm not clambering to get back.

    We had an overall very good dining at Gene & Georgetti's on our most recent visit in late July. I will say though that our party didn't feel that the experience was quite what it used to be here (which pre-pandemic had been amazing), and was now just very good. The menu was much smaller, as were the food portions, and the prices were significantly higher. We still enjoyed ourselves, and will plan on returning again on our next visit to Chicago.
