Definitely best of the 3 main food groups! Fish, Steak, Pasta! Very very elegant place, only one in town (?) for tuna affumicato appetizer. I got an Italian manhattan (amaro instead of vermouth), and then we had the off-menu pasta sampler (4 kinds) that has to be ordered for 2 people. Very tasty, never had even a hint of a bad meal or service at Pelago, just a great place.
A little pricy but the food and service was too quality. Homemade pastas were exquisite. Waiter was attentive and helpful. It is a small, hidden gem right next door.
The food was outstanding and the staff amazing. Very romantic atmosphere
Beautiful ambiance and attentive service.
Pelago is a neighborhood gem. Been going to this spot for years! Best in the city.
The waiters up sold so hard. They misrepresented the size and scope of the courses to oversell us to increase the cost. Our meal ended up costing double what it should. We will NEVER go back!

Un ambiente muy elegante y refinado, con una comida para nada fuera de lo ordinario pero con precios muy muy altos
I chose Pelago for its small, intimate dining room, to avoid crowds during the Covid crisis. The staff were friendly and attentive. The Owner sat at the bar greeting and
thanking patrons as they left. The ambience was warm and welcoming.
There were three different and unusual ragus on the menu. I had the lamb ragu, which was delicious. I would recommend Pelago to a friend.
The food was really good but the portion was a little big. The ambiance is nice and very quiet so people who like that, which I personally do, that was very good about the restaurant. What I was disappointed about was that the servers did not explain the menu and the specials for the day they did not explain fully. And depending on the customer, the servers would say something different. For example we were only told one pasta special of the day, whereas the other tables were told 2 or 3 different pasta specials.
The food and service are next level and the setting is beautiful
A most delicious treat
In a comfortable surrounding
Carpaccio with truffles now on menu with the fantastic tuna affumicato and two excellent soups, one a white pasta fagioli. A sea bream and truffled linguine with a couple drinks and appetizers about 125/person and the best setting and service make a wonderful dinner experience
Everything was splendid!
The best (and most expensive) Italian restaurant in Chicago. Excellent food and professional service in a beautiful intimate room. Wine list features great depth on Italian varietals. Very special.
very nice ambience. good service. Excellent desserts.
Everything was very good except for the price. We know they, like most restaurants, have had a very difficult time over the last year and a half. But I think that they would be much more likely to recover if they priced their food so that customers would want to come back.$250 for two people to eat at an Italian restaurant excluding the price of the wine is too much to pay with any type of frequency. We each had a salad, we shared a risotto, and we each had an entrée. No dessert.
Always an excellent experience
Service was very attentive. Food was delicious.
Its truffle season again! Try the tuna appetizer tonno uffumicato for two and truffle menu. Best outside of Umbria!
The food was amazing, a little overpriced thoough. And the staff was awkward and they kept looking at us
We have eaten at Pelago a number of times during trips to Chicago. We keep coming back because the food is delicious, the ambiance attractive and restful, and the service, attentive and friendly. The dishes are thoughtfully prepared and presented. The homemade pasta is a personal favorite thing about this restaurant. It is wonderful. The wine list is extensive and fun. I'm sure we'll go back again when in Chicago.
Food here is great. Beautiful place too. Sadly, they are overly interested in upselling items (tastings) that are not on the menu and whose prices aren’t in print. And whatever you do, do NOT let the waiter assist you with wine selection - you might find yourself paying more (like really a lot more…) than what you think you might. Also, interesting (in a bad way..) is that the waiter brings your bottle, pours a bit for your approval, then disappears with the bottle and the wine is returned in a carafe…. Not decanted at the table, what?! Not acceptable. And you never see the bottle again, or the cork. I suspect because their up charge is *more* than what the industry average is and they are banking (literally) that you won’t remember the name to perhaps source on your own… whatever. Watch your bill, make sure you know how much your selected items cost. We live a couple blocks away and had this happen once a few years ago (precovid) and then avoided the place for a year and a half. Went again and all was ok, but still the hard up selling. Went this past weekend, and while the food is great, the up selling, the incorrect bill, the terrible attitude of the waiter… nah, forget it. Slow learners we are for sure, but we figured it out finally. Won’t be back. Too many other good restaurants who appreciate their customers and don’t try to rip them off. Go at your own risk
Wonderful restaurant. First time but definitely not my last. Pelago stands out in city with great places to dine. It scores on every measure.
Have dined at Pelago many times and it never disappoints. This trip was for my wife’s birthday. Chef Mauro delivered a delicious meal and the service remains best in class. Whether you live locally or are in town for a quick visit, put Pelago on your fine dining list. True Italian cuisine with the freshest ingredients. ❤️ 🇮🇹
Birthday dinner was great
Its completely overrated WHY over priced FOR WHAT YOU GET…servers raffling food when it comes to delivering it to the table for two people ….no mention of specials only interested in jacking up the ticket price…No wine by the glass list (watch out for that one) water being poured charged for every bottle …skip it it is not worth it ..those days are over.
Pasta overcooked heavy food not so flavourful.
Plenty of other places to take a chance on downtown Chicago
Excellent food with interesting preparations and artistic presentation; extensive wine list; very attentive, knowledgeable service in a inviting environment, sublime decor... recommend for a special occasion date or high profile business dinner. Also offering nice outdoor seating.
Food was very good, although a bit pricey. Had a miscommunication with waiter which really ruined the experience. We told him we were looking to split one main course and two appetizers. We chose a shrimp main course, and he looked at us and asked if we wanted one shrimp...or 2. We both assumed that he was suggesting there was only a single shrimp tail in main course so we said 2. Ended up bringing 2 huge plates of the shrimp special. I brought up the miscommunication, and there was no apology...just a rude "its too late to change now"....with a clear suggestion that it was our fault. We ate one dish and asked them to wrap the other. We waited 15 minutes and they never brought it out so we left...having paid for a $60 main course that we never intended to order, and were never delivered.
The food was great, the drinks are strong, the patio is wonderful, but it is a bit pricey.
The service was attentive and generous
While being respectful of our table conversation . While eating outside , the warm food arrived hot ensuring a pleasant dining experience
Had to continually summon our waiter for service. I’ve been here several times before and service was great. This was not how I wanted to spend my birthday, continually trying to get the waiters attention.
Chef Mauro runs one of the best Italian cuisine restaurants in the world, and it is right here in Chicago! Take advantage of the outdoor patio while the weather is nice and don't miss the smoked tuna appetizer, it's big enough to split. Followed by a pasta sample (4 types on 1 platter) and split a branzino. With cocktails and a glass of wine about $200 total plus tip, not inexpensive, but well and truly worth it.
Excellent quality with excellent service. A bit pricey.
If you like your pasta homemade, your appetizers and salads exquisitely composed, your fish and meats adorned with interesting and creative preparations, and your desserts complex and delicious, this is your place. The prices are fairly high, with salads and appetizers in the $20s, pastas in the mid-$20s, and meats in the $45 range (or a little more), but the quality of the food is a genuine treat. The restaurant itself is beautiful, with fresh flower arrangements to compliment the all-white walls and peaceful decor. A tip: the restaurant has a very small lower area (maybe 3-4 tables?) by the bar and then an upper level a few steps higher. We like the upper level better, as it is a little quieter with a little less “traffic” of people walking to and fro. Don’t be put off by the restaurants location off the lobby of the Raffael hotel — it is an urban oasis, with excellent service as well. Enjoy!
Friends’ get together was wonderful. Get the pasta sequence!
We have been to Italy 10-15 times. This is the best and most authentic Italian restaurant outside of our favorites in Italy.
Pelago was a disappointment. The. Pasta menu is interesting and unusual but the second course menu is limited. Everything is expensive. The night special appetizer, melon with prosciutto was $36. It’s hard to find wine under $60/bottle and most are more than $100. I asked for the wine by the glass menu and was told there was none. The waiter told us the wine available and I was shocked to find out when the bill came that my glass of wine was $30! Never again.
Wonderful meal. Outstanding service.
Amazing ! Food was so delicious!
