Food and service was excellent. Very, very cramped though. I understand it's a small place, but take out a table or two. Other than that, no other issues. We will definitely be back for that lasagna. Oh my!!

My wife and I love veal scallopini. She bakes it with egg whites and bread crumbs, then adds a touch of tomato sauce and parmesan cheese on top. I've never tasted anything like it. But veal is so expensive that we can't get it at our local grocery store. They don't carry it because there isn't a demand for it.... More

This is a quaint restaurant with good food. I had the chicken parm which was okay but their meat sauce on their lasagna is great. Atmosphere was lively and enjoyable.

Bacchanalia is one of the best Italian restaurants around. Great portions and prices. Would definitely recommend for dinner.

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.

This place is a regular for me, as I love to visit there several times a year. All of their food, no matter what you select, is to die for! For instance, try their from-scratch minestrone, sauteed spinach, stuffed mushrooms, or any of their pasta dishes with or without meat, chicken or fish are just outstanding. Their house Chianti is...

For several years my wife and I have celebrated Valentine's Day at Bruna's, which is across the street from Bacchanalia in the Heart of Chicago neighborhood, and also outstanding. This year we decided to change things up and try Bacchanalia. We were hoping for just as good but different, and we certainly weren't disappointed. Dinning out can be a little... More

Had dinner here recently and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The service was efficient and friendly and the food was fantastic! I had veal and my daughter had gnocchi. Both dishes were wonderful. My daughter said "umm" so many times during her meal I was teasing her about it! The house wine is good, too. We were only in Chicago for... More

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 with my daughters 14 and 18. We got the last table in the dining room... More
