    We arrived earlier than our reservation due to a change in plans and they nicely accommodated the change. Note - there was only one other table occupied at that point. Our food was good. Our server rarely checked on us and we sat waiting for more drinks, etc. If they had been super busy I might have understood . I may go back but I won’t go out of my way to do so.

    Amazing food and service as expected. Quality of food and value was great.We enjoyed a few apps and a bottle of wine on a Saturday night. They were able to hold our table’s reservation for a grace period which was nice! I expect any full restaurant on a Saturday night to be moisy. The noise level was so loud I could barely hear my friend 2 feet away from me.It would fit for celebrating something than trying to catch up on intimate conversation with friends.

    The mussels appetizer was delicious! Meal combs with bread service. Carbonara was delicious! I would pick something besides the veal medallions. It tastes a little gamey. The atmosphere is so festive for the holidays and the staff was great! Fun date spot

    The food quality and flavor here is very consistent. The red sauce is so incredibly flavorful that I woke up today thinking about how much I wish I could buy a pint to bring home! The atmosphere is cozy and the servers are attentive. We come here usually to celebrate a special occasion but my daughter chose this on a random Thursday night just because. We will be back again soon.

    I absolutely love this restaurant. It’s the Jewel of Division street. Carducci is my go to for parents in town, dinner with a best friend, & it always makes for an excellent date night. The wait staff & management go above & beyond for their guests. The food is the same caliber & quality of most high-end, River North, Italian restaurants, but without the price. You can’t go wrong with any pasta on the menu. Excellent wine selection & cocktails that will surely raise your spirits.

    The food here is always excellent! We were seated in the side room which was a new experience for us, and very cozy and quaint. The wait staff is always professional, pleasant, and very knowledgeable about the food and wines. The background music would come on full blast but always got adjusted to a more reasonable level pretty quickly, so we were able to talk and hear each other.

    Loved this place, sat on the charming patio and had a fantastic server. Prices are more fair than some other Chicago Italian establishments. Had the bruschetta which was great, and the carbonara which wasn’t my favorite in the city but still a good dish.

    We had a great time at one of the sidewalk tables. Service was fast & polite, food was delish. Big portions were perfect for leftovers. Their Rigatoni Siciliana & Spaghetti Carbonara were to die for, we'll be going back.

    Was really hoping for a better meal here! I had ordered the carbonara and it did not taste at all like what carbonara should taste like. Super meaty taste and no cheese or egg flavor/wasn’t even a similar color as to what you’d expect for carbonara.

    Had resv for 4 people, showed up with 5, np, got us right in. We love the ambiance of this small Italian restaurant. Have come few time before and always happy. We brought friends there for their 1st visit and they were no disappointed. Drinks and apps to start, great recco's and everything came right out. No rush into ordering entre's, again nice recco's, even wine. Salmon, clams & linguine, chicken marsala, penne l'arrabiata, chicken parm, everything was excellent. Again, no rush to finish, had a couple deserts for the table, and the host bought us a round of limoncellos. Wonderful.

    Sat for 45 minutes without getting our entrees order taken. Totally understand if it was a staffing issue but they had a full team and the other folks that sat down the same time as us got their food before we even got a chance to order.
