I had the best homemade sangria ever at this restaurant and the food is delicious as well. My friend enjoys the white fish and the side order of spinach. The restaurant is small and cozy with white tablecloth.

I asked a business associate for dining recommendations in Chicago about 17 years ago and Bacchanalia was one of the first places he mentioned. This year I finally got to go and the food was amazing. I didn't have a reservation but was seated immediately...More
