Piccolo Mondo - Hyde Park
The view is very nice and the seating arrangements are comfortable. Parking is a big problem in that area as it all of Chicago area.
Overall Experience would receive five stars. The service and food was outstanding, I would say the only drawback would be parking.
The food and the service where excellent. A good value and highly recommend.
Excellent food and service!
One of our favorite restaurants, Piccolo Mondo continues to provide excellent food and service at an acceptable price. I ordered the grigliata di pesce, my companions canelone Veneziana and spaghetti al frutti de mare. All were perfectly prepared and served, hot and all at the same time. Cannoli for dessert, without extra toppings as we requested. This restaurant continues to be the most consistently excellent in its food, service and surroundings.
extremely pleasant atmosphere, excellent food wonderful waitstaff
The food was excellent. The service was friendly and helpful, and the server made sure we were served in plenty of time to enjoy dinner and still make an evening performance at Court Theater. We will most definitely return to Piccolo Mndo in the future.
Bland and rather pedestrian service
Loved the food and the staff could not have been more friendly. Very pretty space, too. Free parking is much appreciated
Everything was delicious! Thank you Juan and Santos for the wonderful service!
Always reliable - outstanding service and fabulous food. Thank you!
I've never been disappointed here - unless I didn't have a reservation and couldn't get in!! It is a comfortable space with nice big windows. Food consistently good and service attentive but not too much. I highly recommend Piccolo Mondo!
Our service was very good and the food was excellent. I had the spinach lasagna and had left overs. Always great service and delicious food. Looking forward to returning!
Great food, excellent service, delightful ambiance
This is a local hidden treasure! I really can’t say anything negative about the dining.. from the appetizer - calamari (prepared perfectly) to the desert (chocolate cake) everything was delicious! I will definitely go back and try more items on the menu!
It was a great, quiet spot that was great for a romantic evening. I will definitely go back!
We had a very good experience. The grilled calamari was delicious. I had the Norwegian Salmon special which was terrific. My friend had the French crepes. She wasn’t as pleased with her choice. All in all we had a good experience.
wonderful place to enjoy dinner and especially good for the kind of new years eve celebration
we were looking forward to.
could hear each other, the food was marvelous, the service excellent as always, and the price
delighted they remain in Hyde Park.
We were a party of six. We all loved our food. The service was excellent.
Piccolo Mondo is the best! Great food and service.
Great evening as usual. All good.
Everyth8ng was perfect. Another fantastic experience. We have been coming here for years.
My first time here and everything was amazing. Next time I'm home, I'll be back.
Quality food, attentive service
We shared a salad, had 3 different entrees (one fish, one pasta, one chicken) & had 3 different desserts. ALL were superb, as was the service! We'll be back!
The food was good and wasn't too expensive for lunch. The room was noisy. The service was spotty. It was open on a Monday. This restaurant doesn't give OpenTable points.
A friend and I went for Piccolo Mondo for lunch. It is a great lunch spot. Not too crowded and quiet enough for easy conversation. The staff is always very attentive.
My friend is a vegan. She had a salad that she thought was very good. I'm a diary-free pescatarian. I had the tuna-stuffed tube pasta small plate. It was delicious and was enough food for lunch.
The food was adequate but fairly over priced for what you received. We needed a place to go before a musical performance at UChicago, and it fit the bill. My husband and I had entrees, water and split a dessert and it was nearly $80 for lunch. While I don't mind the price, the food did not live up to the price tag. Although nothing was wrong with it per se, I was not wowed. The servers seemed somewhat bored.
Food was average at best and the prices were high given the quality. Dishes were very saucy and not particularly tasty.
It was great! Amazing food and awesome service! We will be back.
Food was very good. It was loud when we got there. We asked for a table where we could at least sit closer to each other so we could have a conversation but were told no. After it was half cleared out it got better. Wait staff was disinterested and not very attentive and at times rude. Our water glasses were never empty so that staff was very good and polite. I would not go back. Too many other restaurants with good food and pleasant wait staff.
But I would warn friends that there might be only one server. We waited a pretty long time to be seated, have them take our order, and to check in on us for refills.
Very loud and service was a little “messy”
Went here for first time . Food was delicious (our waiter's suggestions were spot on) and service
was great. Would come back again!
Love this place. Varied menu. Everything delicious.
This is a great place for dining with a group--the restaurant is conversation friendly and there is a large selection of entres. The service is attentive but not intrusive. I will be back!
My favorite restaurant in Hyde Park!
Any of the chicken or seafood dishes are great. I am not a calamari person so I have no experience in that but the chicken or salmon are great!!
We took our son there after the Museum of Science and Industry. Food was good, place was clean, servers were great
I will be back. I absolutely adore this restaurant and the staff!
