Success! Thanks for posting your review of Pane Caldo. You’ve done the world some good today.

Still a Hidden Treasure

Your presence is irrelevant. If a tree falls in the forest, air is forced away from impact no matter if your eardrums vibrate. And so Pane Caldo remains one of the city's finest restaurants despite the fact that you have never eaten there and probably never will. Economics is a dismal science. Ask people with that misspent education (author included) and they'll probably spew off some happy horse-poopy about suppl... view more

Romantic Dinner to Impress

If you're celebrating an anniversary, or perhaps popping the BIG question Pane Caldo's front table overlooking Walton street is extremely romantic with a private feel. The service is impeccable with delicious Italian cuisine. I enjoyed the fresh fish prepared neatly with a rich sauce that was not overpowering. This restaurant is defiantly a romantic spot worth splurging.

total ripoff ... if you have money to waste this is the best place for you. Worst quality/price ratio ever ...

Very disappointing rip off

Applebee's quality at TRU prices. Invited by friends who know good food upon recommendation of a friend of theirs. Bread awful & cold (ironically so on both counts given the restaurant's name). Salads at $18 apiece were tasteless, uninspired in terms of ingredients and dressing, and very small. My entre, a take off on Fruiti di Marmi (seafood pasta) was a clump of overcooked Spinach fettuccine with overcooked, rubber... view more

Not what we expected

My husband and I dined there last night, and, were somewhat disappointed. We had a reservation and were seated immediately upon arriving. The hostess was lovely, very kind, and friendly, and the restaurant itself is warm, cozy, and upscale. We were, however, seated inbetween 2 couples who weren't mindful of the close proximity of each table. The gentleman sitting next to my husband, had quite a foul mouth, which we f... view more

Chicago's Most Outstanding Restaurant

Chicago's most outstanding restaurant and one of the Nation's best!!! Excellent food, lovely presentation, taste , texture, in an cozy, intimate setting. Richard is an excellent manager and knowledgeable wine lover with very helpful recommendations (within every budget) for wonderful food:wine parings. Ask for the Irish born waiter Michael who will surely cater to your personal needs and likes/dislikes. A wonderful e... view more

Fresh tastes better!

This spot is a little trapped in the 80's (spotlites, hazy kitchen smoke, artwork) but great service and excellent food. Freshest seafood and produce. Pricey, but tasty. Great risotto with mushrooms and winter truffles, excellent tilapia and monkfish. Grilled shrimp appitizer just OK. Found a decent Pouilly-Fuisse for $74, but overall wine is very expensive. Housemade bread and olive tapenade / basil tomato brusc... view more

Excellent food, very good service. The best seared tuna, the sea bass is a must. I have been several times at Pane Caldo, it's probably one of the best that Chicago can offer.

A big expensive disappointment

Waitress and hostess were indifferent. Wine list was too expensive - most bottles well over $90. Food was big disappointment, given the high price. Our salad for $11 consisted of six leaves of arugala and two shavings of beet. The mushroom antipasti for $19 was an unremakable half cup of sauteed mixed wild mushrooms. For $17, our other antipasti - grilled calamari and prawn - was one shrimp and three baby squid ... view more

This little restaurant on the gold coast is often overlooked, suprizingly deep wine cellar, attentive staff, not your traditional italian cuisine but be prepared, dinner can add up very quickly (for 2, over $100 without wine. Great for a romantic evening out, very quiet, dark and relaxed dining, not rushed
