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

Really Fantastic!

My husband and I only recently moved to Chicago a few weeks ago. We have always heard that Chicago was a great town to try wonderful food from all over. So far, we have only ventured around our neighborhood as we would like to get to know it first. We have been to several restaurants in and around Roscoe Village. We have spent quite a bit at some and have been less than impressed with the food, but not Terragusto! I... view more

Horrible service - don't go

I and a group of 3 more friends went to the Terragusta looking for good food.It was 9 pm we had a concert to go and were ready to order some light food. The four of us were ready to order when one of my friend's date arrived saying that she just wanted to hang out a little bit before going to the concert and she had eaten already. The waitress, really polite btw, told us that if we were 5 people we would have to buy ... view more

WOW - Amazing Quality & Taste

A group of 8 of us went here on a Wednesday night. Given that we were 8 people, we had no choice but to go with the Chef's choice menu for either $38 or 46.50.\r We chose the more expensive b/c it was a special occasion and were all intrigued by what they considered their ""best."" \r We were not disappointed. Several of us are foodies, having been to some of the best restaurants in Chicago, and Terragusto far exc... view more

Simple Yet Elegant

I was recommended this restaurant by a good friend. He stated if you want to go somewhere intimate, fresh, tastful, and a different experience, Terragusto is the place to try. I took my husband for an afternoon out, The location blends with the neighborhood, the menu selection is unique on a daily bases, and I like the fact that you can bring your own choice of beverage (wine is an excellent choice - they supply th... view more

Great Place

There are so many reasons to love this place. I wish it wasn't always booked...note you'll want to make reservations about two weeks in advance if you want a Friday or Saturday night. The prix fix menu is a great value and you get plenty of food...BYOB is also a nice bonus. I would eat here all the time if I could...great place to take guests to show off great Chicago atmosphere and food.

Can't say enough good things about this place

My husband and I walk by this place all the time since it's a block from out house. I was always intrigued -- it's off the beaten path but always full of people. So, we tried and tried for reservations -- always last minute and never able to get in. We finally planned ahead and success! Stepping in, the space was personal and inviting -- authentic Italian cafe style. But I must say it's really about the food. They ar... view more

Has so much potetial, but hasn't met it yet

I had such high hopes for this restaurant after reading so much about them. They have a great philosophy with local, organic food - this matched with fresh house made pasta and it should be a home run, but unfortunately we were disappointed. We didn't have any problems with the service and the quality of the food was fine, but not to the level we had expected. The baked polenta was one of the best things on the menu ... view more

So much better than I expected

Eat out a lot and the more the hype builds for the ""hot new secret"" places the more I seem let down. Few live up to the buzz - this one does for sure. Unpretentious in a way too casual atmosphere, but the food is out of this world. No fancy test tubes or foam, just solid authentic Italian food. \r \r My night started off with a 10 minute wait for my reserved table, but no big deal for prime time Saturday nigh... view more

I do not recommend

I do NOT recommend Terra Gusto. This restaurant was recommended by a friend who recommended Tango Sur (amazing place). So, I was very excited to try this one out. I took my parents, and boy was I embarrassed. We had a reservation for 8:30pm. When we arrived we had to wait for 1 hour for a table. They didn?t even offer us a stool to sit on for 30 min. Forget about a complementary appetizer or a dessert. We had... view more

Best homemade pasta this side of Italy!

A recent TV reviewer stated that this was the ""best home-made pasta this side of Italy."" She was absolutely correct. The pasta is indeed marvelous! The pork was incredible! The atmosphere is good and the wait staff is friendly, attentive, and knowledgable. Go back? Absolutely! Good job, Terragusto!
