Great food, wine and service! Highly recommend
Ruined my birthday and service was bad
The manager was no help.
Dear Earl, I am sorry that your experience did not meet your expectations. We take pride in the food & service we offer. We apologize for not providing timely silverware with your complimentary dessert & drink. Thank you for bringing it to my attention. The drink you were unhappy-with was re-made & also comped by myself. I offered an additional dessert platter for your party but I understand your frustration. If there is another way we can make amends, please call me @ 847.836.1700. J. Frost, GM
We had an amazing dinner that began when we arrived and ended as we left, with great service and amazing food. We tried the Pasta, Meatballs & Sausage and Short Ribs! We will be back.
Thank you! We make our Spaghetti and Meatballs from-scratch, daily and we're glad you could taste the love!
Great outdoor seating, food was delicious, and service was great! Will be back soon
Thank you Madison! Comments like yours make the whole team's day!
Love the food and ambiance. A bit pricey but worth it.
Excellent meal ! The outdoor area was cute and comfortable!
Thank you Darlene! We've been working hard on making the patio area as charming as our interior. We're glad you enjoyed it!
Loved our waiter!! It was our anniversary
Thank you for sharing your special day with us!
Window seat. Dead flies on the window sill.
Rimmed my lemon drop martini with salt.
Celebrated our 25th anniversary but they didn’t acknowledge it.
Cute on the inside and great on the outside. I went as an anniversary celebration and we sat outside. Great set up and environment, especially if you like the ambiance of people talking and shopping. Great food, small yet delicious dessert menu
Good food in nice atmosphere. Portion was on the small side but tasted great.
Very pretty restaurant with outdoor seating. We chose to sit inside, and felt that it was a safe atmosphere, and COVID-19 protocols were strictly enforced. The food was very good (when we were finally served), but the service - horrible! Really. I would list all of the complaints (no menus - had to hunt them down, food taking forever to arrive, a long line of revolving servers, a bus boy who literally stood over one of us and WAITED while a dinner was finished to take the plate, etc.). The final straw was dessert. We waited, and waited, and waited. We finally gave up and just asked for the check. I think what was the most upsetting, is we were the ONLY people left in the restaurant. We watched table after table come and go. It's too bad - lovely place, TERRIBLE management.
I am deeply sorry about your unhappy experience & I appreciate your feedback. In investigating, I see your order was placed after a large party & that may have contributed to it taking longer than usual. Operating under these conditions with reduced-staff, some new, sanitizing menus, table-spacing, etc., has been challenging. You deserve attentive & UNOBTRUSIVE service & your meals prepared in a reasonable amount of time. Please contact me at Frost@incontroatavola so that we can make it right.
Outstanding!!! Juan was an excellent server! The food and service is ALWAYS the best. Definitely our “go to” place for a terrific meal. Outdoor patio is an added bonus!!!!
Another delicious meal! Great service as always!
Thank you Christina! We're always happy to see you!
White fish was not as described on the menu and mediocre at best. Calamari was good but a very skimpy portion for the price. Burata salad was great. Service was erratic. Drinks were good. Servers were very pleasant but had to ask for bread, ice, water repeatedly.
Person who brought our food was not wearing a mask.
Bill, we have a non-negotiable policy that all staff are wearing masks and we are conducting wellness-checks every shift. We take the safety of our guests and our home seriously. I apologize if any of us dropped the ball, we will do better. Thank you for letting us know.
The food was really good. Fresh made. The waiter was very friendly but could have been a bit more attentive. Had to ask for a re-fill for my my wife's coffee. All in all an excellent experience.
One of our favorite restaurants! Juan and Martha are great.
They are! Don't let it go to their heads. Thank you so much for visiting us!
We have typically enjoyed everything about this restaurant. The food is WONDERFUL and high quality which helps to prompt me to pay their prices BUT recently we dined there on the outdoor patio area. We ordered our food and never saw our server again after that. No check back to see if our food was adequate, no check back to see if we needed something else and no coming back with the check. We finished eating, both of us wanting refilled drinks, after approximately 30-35 minutes after being served. Then we continued to wait another 10-15 minutes before having to go inside to ask for our check. Then, they charged us an amount that related to another tables check, not ours! My husband paid without noticing the error and we left. After about 5 mins walking around the outdoor mall, I asked to see the bill and noticed it wasn’t our check. We had to go back to get the charge changed to reflect correct amount. Sooooo very disappointed which was particularly awful and out of character for this restaurant. I can only chalk it up to a poorly trained server following the reopening of the restaurant post Covid
We had a reservation but was required to wait 40 minutes anyway.
Was excited to go back here after reopening, met up with an old friend, had a table in direct sun, wouldn’t let us switch even though we offered to wait till the next table became available. First server came by and brought out drinks then disappeared and proceeded to wait on 2 other parties that arrived after us. We finally flagged down a different server who was really attentive and kind but the food was a disappointment. Arancini were chewy and cold on the inside, my pasta with fennel sausage was meh... with restaurants opening back up will pass on Incontro for a while. Maybe once things settle down their service and quality will pick up again.
The 2 servers were great
Servers were fantastic, very attentive, wore their mask. Eating outside made us feel extra safe. Lemon chicken was delicious. I would definitely go back.
Father’s Day dinner
Our family of six had Father's Day dinner in the outside seating area during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The servers were wearing appropriate PPE and practicing social distancing as much as possible, and they were thoughtful and attentive without being disruptive. Our table was given two disposable paper menus and also had access to the menu on our smartphones via a QR code displayed on the table, which helpfully reduced exposure to COVID.
The food was EXCELLENT as usual. You really can't beat their handmade pasta, but all the dishes I've had have been delicious. My favorites are the Fettuccine Al Basilico (fettuccine with pesto, mozzarella, and tomatoes), Parmigiana Di Melanzane (eggplant parm), and Rotolo Alla Vodka (tri-color pasta rolls baked in vodka sauce and topped with arugula salad). They also have a large selection of wine and make a great mojito!
The chairs outside are metal and not as comfortable as I'd like them to be. It was also a hot, humid day, but unless I am mistaken, the weather is outside the realm of things which the staff can control.
Please do yourself a favor and go eat at Incontro A Tavola!
Decent for suburbia but not the best. Food is on the salty side
Whenever my Family and I are in Barrington, we always eat here. The food is great!!
We had Mike as our server he was wonderful. Didn't rush us and was vert attentive. Was a beautiful evening outside.
Although the dining room wasn’t open yet to the public, my party jumped on the chance to eat outside on Incontro A Tavola’s patio and had a wonderful time. It was great to see all the restaurant’s staff again and they all worked together to make sure customers enjoyed themselves and, of course, stayed safe. The quality of the food and service were their usual high levels, and we all are looking forward to returning soon.
Juan was great! It was welcoming and warm! So glad to sit outside!
Excellent service and great food. Would be good to add heaters for cool nights.
The food is outstanding and the service is very good. I knocked off one star because we were seated at the very last table away from the main outdoor area and the seating was uncomfortable.
We went to Incontro A Tavola for our anniversary and everything was perfect! Excellent drinks, food, and service. Will come again.
We ate outside, because of the IL rules, and it rained so it was less the pleasant. However, our waiter was so kind to offer my girls a bowl of soup to share because he saw them shivering. In addition, he brought 4 of us white tablecloths to cover our legs to use as blankets. It was an unexpected gesture and we truly appreciated it. This was the first restaurant we ate it since March and the food was delicious. I highly recommend the salmon.
We went during Covid time so we had to sit outside but they made us as comfortable as they could. The food here was ABSOLUTELY OUTSTANDING. Some of the best italian food I have ever had, and I come from an italian family, so that's saying something. My friend and I shared the Bruchetta which was perfectly crisp, buttery, and delicious. For dinner we shared the Tuscan braised short ribs and the Paccheri Tartufati. Both we so amazing that we couldn't decide which one we liked more. The short rib literally melted in your mouth and the pasta was so unbelievably delicious that even though we were full halfway through, we had to finish it. The service left something to be desired, however. We ordered, it took about 15 minutes to get our drinks (a whiskey and a wine, nothing fancy) and almost 40 minutes to get our appetizer. Our food was out 10 minutes later. As a server, I understand that with Covid they may have been short on kitchen staff, so some wait is acceptable, but during this time we did not see our server AT ALL to give us updates on our food. She did, however, apologize and comp our drinks for the long wait time. Maybe we will try again when things are back in full swing. In the meantime, we will definitely order carryout from here. I am still tasting that pasta and have been craving more for days!!!
Such a wonderful group of wait staff!! I’ve been here 3-4 times and it’s always been a treat!!
Great food as always, slightly expensive. Outdoor dining was nice but service was slow.
Wonderful experience. Service was outstanding! Thanks Juan~
