Pleasant. We went because we’ve enjoyed the food in the past, and they honor the neighborhood restaurant week menu a few days longer than the chamber mentions. (We were also going to commence the end to our life as just a couple as we are having our first child in 3 days.)
I do like that there is a limited menu because there shouldn’t be so much to choose from anyways, and within the limitations allows them to focus on preparing the few dishes they do serve well! There’s no salt or pepper on the table in this restaurant and there isn’t a need for it either, because everything is seasoned appropriately, even the simple arugula salad. While the portion sizes are perfect for someone like me that still takes home a doggy bag, my husband would prefer a double entree size, he is satisfied for the most part but wouldn’t mind the option of continuing to spoon this deliciousness into his mouth. Tonight we had the fried cheese fritters which were dainty, tangy pillows of cheese! The tomato jam, was indeed ‘the jam!’ The arugula salad, it was dressed perfectly with salt, olive oil and lemon, fresh crushed pepper made it spot on. My beef tenderloin with polenta, spinach and port reduction was perfectly cooked and if I had room to finish I would’ve also licked my plate! My husbands option of seafood stew over risotto was delicious also, the muscles, clams and calamari were fresh tasting and risotto perfectly cooked. For dessert we had the gelato and it was a yummy way to end the relaxing quaint evening.

I was a guest at Due Lire before an Old Town School show, and really enjoyed my meal then (Arctic Char, a special, was delicious.) I liked it so much I hosted a recent birthday celebration there, and people really enjoyed it. Two people present usually don't finish their meals, but every dinner plate was completely eaten. One person, who normally doesn't finish their meal, said, after the meal was over, something to the effect that they hadn't said how good their ravioli was for fear of having to give up a morsel to another person. Vegetarians have more than a token option to choose from, especially if they're willing to make a meal of assorted sides - but there are mains that fit the bill too. I strongly suggest the artichoke dish, but have also enjoyed the polenta and cheese dumpling/fritter dishes as sides. At one point it got loud, but only for a short bit. I have never gone when the weather suited the patio, but look forward to trying it next year. Service was attentive but not intrusive.

We walked in and the noise level was loud. We were on a date so difficult to hear each other. The food was good and our wait staff was good. The Cod special was very good and the Gnocchi was 1st rate.

Our server Andre was very attentive and provided a wonderful suggestion for a substitute bottle of Sangiovese wine when the Chianti we ordered was 'out'. Fried calamari appetizer was tasty and ample for two and the artichoke leaves and olives(!?!) added were deep fried as well. Ruth really like her shrimp with twisted pasta dish. I like my braised rib and beef risotto, but thought it blandly seasoned. Her desert was pistachio ice cream with chocolate and expresso on top was a fabulous addition.

This was our first time here and what a neighborhood gem! We were lucky enough to sit in the outside patio and it was fabulous. Adrian was our server and he made wonderful recommendations. Our wine and our food were fabulous and we certainly will be going back again. Perfect for before concerts at old town school of music. We had a beef and goat cheese salad, a risotto that had corn and shrimp which was outstanding, and a red trout special along with a tagielle pasta with seafood. Perfect!

Delicious food and excellent service. The server was knowledgeable and efficient. My pork chop was cooked perfectly—moist and tender with complex flavors from the stuffing and sauce. The short rib ravioli were rich and beefy flavor.

It all seems a bit pricey for what you get. Case in point was the Calamari; it was mostly grilled 'something else' but not the squid. Also, while I'm not a large portion, the main course was sort of tiny. They don't bring bread to the table as a rule, so they charge you for it.

I don't need to go back. Sorry, but you asked.

Maybe for City of Chgo was customary but thought the value for the food was below average. $19 for short rib ravioli was poor. They were tiny & almost looked sunken. The taste was ok. Also had saffron shrimp risotto special for $20 & that was a better value. Glasses of red wine were average in price. However no bread offered, had to pay for that. Service was excellent & sitting in the patio in back excellent.

This was our second visit to Due Lire. Once again, the appetizers did not disappoint (the polenta fries in the fritto were fried to perfection), and the drinks were delicious. I had the gnocchi and my boyfriend had the beef tenderloin special. The briny element of the artichoke in the gnocchi with the spicy sausage was amazing with the pillowy gnocchi. We had the cheesecake special for dessert, and the amaretto crust with the toasted Italian merengue on the top were special touches.

This little spot has quickly become our favorite Italian restaurant! From birthdays to date night, Due Lire is always a spot we consider for a fantastic Italian meal.

We have walked past Due Lire multiple times and never felt like we wanted to go outside of the comfort zone of our regular Italy restaurants. Then a friend suggested it for his birthday. We are glad he did.
From the friendly, skilled service to the variety of fresh pastas and entrees we were not disappointed.
The desserts were great especially the Nutella mousse crisp.
The space is small but not crowded.
We are definitely returning.

I ordinarily do not write reviews but based on my dreadful dining experience I felt compelled to do so.
1) The noise level- is Awful! They need to do something to absorb or soften the noise! 2) The service was very poor and they did not have written specials and because of the noise level we could not hear the waiter. We were not even offered water to drink! After 20 minutes we had to flag down the waiter to order appetizers and the main course. 15-20 minutes later the appetizers came. We were in the restaurant 80 minutes or an hour and 20 minutes before our main course came. Adding insult to injury the waiter had a very bad arrogant attitude! It was a birthday celebration and we felt based on the lateness of everything - they could have at least comped us the birthday dessert or all of the desserts. Of course - NO! The whole bill including tax and tip was over $200 for 4 people. The only drinks we ordered was 2 bottles of Sparkling water. It was a birthday and an engagement celebration. It was a truly AWFUL experience and none of us will ever go back! I speak Italian and the owner is Italian and I heard him speaking Italian. Normally I would have spoken and exchanged some pleasantries in Italian with him but honestly the whole experience left truly a BAD TASTE in my mouth, so I declined to speak with him...

My husband’s lasagna was excelkent. It was a special. The spaghetti bolognese was way too salty. I could not finish it. We had appetuzers -I think it was polenta sticks, which were bland. The cheese balls had a delicious cheese.
