Google describes this restaurant as “Upscale, contemporary Italian-Mediterranean restaurant & bar on the 3rd floor of The Art Institute.” I guess this is an apt description.
Although it is part of the Art Institut Museum you won’t need an entry ticket as the restaurant is separated from the exhibitions. Located on the third floor you will have an amazing view – no matter if you are sitting inside with a view to the Michigan Avenue skyline or outside on the terrace looking over Millenium Park.
The furniture is really nice quality and I just love the design concept of dishes, chairs etc. The menu is authentic Italian and if you are vegetarian it is not pricey at all considering the quality you are given. However, fish and meat dishes are a bit more pricy.
I really recommend you to taste the Italian bread!
The service is very nice, the atmosphere is relaxed and it’s a great place to slow down your mind.
