Absolutely amazing dinner and experience! The Roman Style Artichoke was amazing. We ordered the Short Rib Bolognese, Carbonara, and Scallops. Everything was cooked to perfection and the flavor and portion sizes were perfect. For desert we had the cheesecake, cannolis, and Pistachio Gelato. The whole dinner was great do to our Rockstar server Travis. He put everything together for us beautifully last night. Great experience can’t wait to go back again.

The food was poor. Our Beef tartare was the worst I have ever had in my life. Our main courses were ok, just average. It was our first date away from our kids in 5 years and I’m bummed the experience wasn’t good.

Traveling in the area and We were celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary. RPM came recommended and We were very pleased! The whole team made it very special! We were treated to champagne and a special anniversary dessert. The food recommendations were right on and the sommelier helped us chose the right wine. Highly recommend!

It’s one of the few places that never disappoints from quality of food to quality of service. The fritto misto appetizer is a must have.

We came in with great expectations from seeing and hearing such great things, and they didn't disappoint. Our reservation was on the early side (4:30) but they didn't rush us through so we could relax and enjoy the ambiance and our drinks. The Manhattan was smooth and smoky, served with an ice block with "RPM" etched on the top. If we were to change anything, it would be ordering the garlic bread over the focaccia, but only personal preference. The Italian salad was full of flavor, and my seared scallops were tender and bursting with flavor. Service was prompt and polite, and the dining room had a great vibe. Overall we had a great and memorable anniversary dinner!

The service was great but I was expecting better food. We had the scallops which were pretty rubbery, and the lobster ravioli which was pretty good. Our table was RIGHT in front of the stand where the servers out in orders which was really awkward.

This was our second visit to RPM Italian. Our previous experience was fantastic. This time around was even better! Our waiter, Dre, made our experience extra special and lots of fun! Cannot wait to go back next time! Highly recommend! And if you want an outstanding experience, ask for Dre as your server!! :-)

Just love RPM wonderful food and energetic atmosphere. Chicken parm is delicious and not too heavy. Love the fried olives and beet salad. All the pastas are tasty. Great place to go and enjoy friends. Finally the wait staff is friendly and efficient.

Very swanky looking place...wait staff in white coats. Seemed a bit touristy but to be expected I guess with who the owners are. The food was yummy, but not the best I’ve ever had. Service was fantastic. Our waiter really got to know us, made great recommendations and was thoughtful enough to bring us birthday and anniversary celebratory desserts. Definitely a fun place to get dressed up and go to for a special occasion.

Awesome service, lovely ambiance and delicious food! All courses were timed perfectly, never felt rushed. Drinks replenished promptly without even noticing we were running low. My party of 2 shared 3 appetizers, 2 pasta dishes and 2 desserts. Definitely will recommend to anyone visiting Chicago and plan to return on my next visit.

The food at RMP is incredible. Service, food, ambience what else is there. However, the new Portofino, not so good. Anticipated the opening but was disappointed. Pesto sauce was too much. Expensive but really not worth it.

This is a beautiful restaurant with attentive wait staff, a satisfying menu, and a well-appointed bar. It was recommended to us by a native Chicagoan, and we appreciated the delicious food, convenient location, and elegant atmosphere.
