Hubby and I stopped in for a happy hour beverage and appetizer and were not disappointed. The interior is warm and welcoming but we just sat at the bar. Our drinks were perfectly made an poured and the server was exceptionally friendly. The prices were very reasonable and our choice of the Sausage Ala Botto (? name) was perfect. Seasoned... More

Service was mediocre. Appetizers came out approximately 15 minutes apart 1 st the steamers then clams on half shell. Had to ask for bread, then had to ask for butter a few minutes later. Had to ask for refills on water and coffee. Took long time for food. Not a complicated order. Chicken parms. Ravioli and penne. Atmosphere in lounge... More

Huge menu but food mediocre at best and ridiculously expensive, place needs serious updating. Staff could be friendlier and more helpful.

Not as good as I'd hoped. For the price, I was expecting more flavor. I ordered the crab ravioli special. It was flavorless, except for the fishiness of the crab. The cheese on top had melted and hardened into this rubbery mess. Waitress neglected to keep water glasses filled, and after all the salt I had to add to my... More

We made a reservation on Open Table, arrived on time, and was seated in the bar area. The manager suggested that if we book through OT again, we should specify that we would like to be seated in the dining room. Not having ever been there before, we didn't know there were seating choices to be made. We were seated... More

My hubby and I frequent Botto's often. We've been two times this past month, Friday nights, patio service. It has been terrible. Both nights, service was EXTREMELY slow and the hostess seemed overwhelmed. The first night the manager walked around and apologized to everyone seated around us, including us, for the slow service. Ok perhaps an off night, someone called... More

Stopped in on the recommendation of a friend. Meh. The service is sloooooooow. The hostess stood at a nearby table and chatted with friends for most of my visit, while I sat without promised bread, and a very average dinner salad that took 15 minutes to arrive. The atmosphere is that of a loud sports bar. The food is, well,... More

Met with four colleagues for dinner here. Sausage is what is featured on the menu. Food was very good. There are other Italian places in Chicago (where I'm from) that I like better, but this was very good. The red gravy is authentic and flavorful. Bread was fresh and wine selection was good. I'd come back if in the area... More
