Nice place. Disappointing food.

We went to Trattoria No. 10 because of the favorable reviews and close distance to our hotel.

The ambiance was nice except that it was very odd to enter the front door and not see the restaurant. It's down a flight of stairs.

Now for the food. First we ordered a Caesar salad. The lettuce was intentionally singed and burned in some places. That's really strange and did nothing to make it tastier. The dressing was not traditional and ok, but not exceptional. There was a small tomato (not usual to a Caesar salad) and some anchovy. Neither my wife nor myself cared for the salad.

Next came the ravioli with spicy sausage. The marinara sauce looked and tasted as if it came out of a bottle. The sausage was not particularly spicy nor tasty. My wife liked the dish better than I did, but I was very disappointed.

Last was the veal cutlet with pancetta. Three small pieces of veal in a creamy sauce with a taste of cinnamon. The sauce contained some capers and sliced nuts, possibly almonds. Again, very disappointing. It felt as if the chef had thrown together various ingredients as an experiment. And cinnamon in veal cutlet? What were they thinking?

Needless to say, we will not be returning. Too bad, because it's a nice place, with friendly and efficient service.

A restaurant with GREAT food and quiet atmosphere! Good Find!

My fave - the butternut squash Ravioli. DELISH. Portions are a little small - but the food is really good. Lovely looking restaurant with a QUIET atmosphere, which is hard to find downtown. Would definitely recommend.

Amazing atmosphere

After the last 7 years of constantly battling the ""noisiest"" restaurants, at last we found a place to have an incredible meal but we could also hear each other speak! We have been to all of them, only to find ourselved screaming over each other. Not here! The environment is just decadent--quiet and beautifully decorated. The staff wasn't bothering us every 3 minutes. I would have given them 5 stars except that our waitress could have been a little nicer--introducing herself, explaining the specials etc. But if you've never visited Chicago and want a treat that won't cost you the 150 per plate fee--this is it!
Even the people we entertained said ""that was the best evening ever and also wanted to go back!""
Oh--save room for dessert, the Profiteroles and the chocolate sampler was amazing!

Fantastic Food; Shady Service?

This restaurant was recommended to us by the awesome and friendly cab driver, Luis, who brought us in from the airport. He was right - the food was delicious, no question!! Really delectable combinations (goat cheese and candied walnuts complimenting several dishes) and pretty unique choices. The prices ($18-$35 for entrees) well reflected the quality of the meals. HOWEVER, our server seemed to pull a fast one. When we ordered our dinners, he asked if we'd like THE soup or salad with them... Considering that Italian restaurants typically provide bread and salad with your entree coupled with the voice inflection of the question, we both assumed soup or salad were included. Had we be given the information that the salads weren't included in the price of the meal, we would have still asked for them - but when the surprise extra $16 showed up on our bill we were really turned off by the seemingly shady move of our server.
EXCELLENT food, but beware if you like ethics.

Great food and wonderful ambiance. Extensive wine list at a good price. Service was a bit too standoffish - but a wonderful meal made up for it. Definately recommend it!

Great date night

Even though my date and I were eating during the pre-show bustle, we were still seated right away and the service was great. Our waiter was on the ball and professional. Portions were small but the quality was high. The setting was romantic but our table was squished in between other tables which took away from some of the intimacy. I would definitely go here again, but I would request a more secluded table.

Romantic Dining

This resturant was fantastic. Great foodand drinks. Customer service wonderful our waitress was great my good friend got proposed to and the waitress put her twist on it by putting the ring in the middle of a plate of chocolate covered strawberries. it was the perfect day. the whole resturant was perfect I highly recommend it to everyone.

It's Just OK

I wouldn't rant and rave about the food because I thought it was average at best. I thought there was some sort of complimentary ravioli? If so I didn't get any. There was a complimentary roll that was hard as a brick, but add some soft butter and I guess you've got something. The chicken was good but the pasta was bland.

Loved it!

Went there Saturday night with my sweetie & two other couples. AWESOME and would HIGHLY RECOMMEND! The food was great with wonderful portions for the price. The ambiance was very romantic and the service was second to none! Our server was very knowledgeable about everything from the food to the wine to the dessert and was able to provide ""snippets"" about anything and everything we mentioned. I would absolutely recommend Trattoria 10 for a fine dining experience. We will definitely be going there the next time we are in Chicago.
