Sophisticated and chic, RPM Italian is perfect for a great meal or late night out.

Bill and Giuliana Rancic force us to like them with excellent Italian food in a trendy setting.

Ratings 7.5-8.0:These are restaurants that are reliable, tasty, and particularly good for whatever we have deemed them “Perfect For.” Hit up a 7.7 for Date Night with confidence, as long as you don’t need the restaurant to be the most interesting thing that happens that night.

I would definitely recommend RPM Italian to a friend. The food was very good and there was a large variety of options. A large gluten-free menu is also a huge plus if you have anyone with gluten dietary restrictions. The only "con" would be the portion sizes. Although the experience is supposed to be tapas style, the portions were still very small. One plate is okay to share between 2 people but not 4. There is just not enough ravioli to go around :)

The food and service was excellent! Only negative is the location of our table. It looked like our table was randomly placed between a curtain and the top of a set of stairs. It was too much traffic at the spot.

The food and ambiance were superb! Delicious and I would definitely recommend it. Just a few notes--Open Table lists this restaurant as "$" when it is definitely closer to "$TEMP_OC_CONTENT_HEREquot; (and also listed this way online). I would go in expecting to spend more than $30/person. Also, the waiter told us he recommends about 6 food items for 2 people. I would say this is way too much. We orded 6 things for 3 people and it was plenty; we took home leftovers! But overal--delicious food and a very nice restaurant.

The food was delicious. Standouts were the truffle bread and the seafood risotto. It was pricey and the portions were small. An entrée of 4 scallops was over-priced. Our waiter was excellent, and it was a good vibe.

I would highly recommend RPM to my friends. Everything was great! The food, the ambiance, and the service. Our waitress was very attentive and gave us her recommendations. As soon as we sat down she knew we were celebrating two birthdays which is always so nice.

The food was delicious!! Starting with the truffle bread and burrata (def. a fav from the night). The 600 day prosciutto was soooo good. I should say though the Brussel sprouts and fried olives were good but nothing special, you can probably skip those items.

The lobster spaghetti was a favorite for sure!! We also ordered the special of the day which was truffle rissotto..it was delicious!!! We ended the evening with the pistachio gelato..yum yum!

Wonderful evening! The service was wonderful, we had a very sweet and polite server named Jackie who provided awesome recommendations. The food was delicious and the restaurant was very accommodating to my GF request. Our food was on our table within 10 minutes of ordering and was delicious and hot. The restaurant had an awesome, relaxed vibe with beautiful decor. Portions are small but great quality. Would recommend to a friend.

Food and service was great. We had an issue when we were checked in. Hostess supposedly checked us in than totally forgot about us for 45 min. It turns out she never really checked us in. Our reservation showed as being missed.
To make up for the mistake the manager offered us a better table and two champagne drinks on the house. The problem is that later when we looked at the bill we were actually charged for these drinks.
I am very disappointed from the hosting service.
