Great ambiance. Service was very good. The fried calamari was really tough so I don’t recommend it. The food was good but lacked flavor. More garlic was definitely needed.
Tia is one of the best Italian restaurants in the city. Love the garlic bread appetizer that they give you!
Great food, drinks and service.
Incredible old-school Italian food. Cozy decor and atmosphere.
Went with a large group for a celebration dinner. Great food and great service!!
We just moved to Chicago . Great
Great service, pizza and drinks at the bar as usual!!
Patrick was the best waiter ever!!
The tables are a little jammed together. There were several larger parties (there were only 3 of us), and we had to make several requests for items. The food is solid, not outstanding, but it’s a local place for us so we enjoy going there.
Lovely ambience. Lovely wine. Lovely food. Lovely dessert. Found my new neighborhood hangout. Ask for Patrick to serve you.
Food was great as usual but the service was a little off which was unusual. Love this restaurant.
Patrick is a great waiter
Great meal again! Patrick was awesome!
This place is the real deal!!! I hosted a part of 20 here for a work function. I heard good things from a friend who recommended it. Man, it was so good. The food was outstanding and very authentic. The service was off the charts. From the moment we arrived, we felt very welcomed. Patrick was our server and he was fantastic. I couldn’t recommend Victory more as a really cool, casual spot to try. They have great tv’s in the bar as well. I’ll be back with a group and even myself when I’m in town on business. Homerun spot!!
this is an out of the way place with great Italian food and good service. we will definitely be back!
Great time! Food was very good and the portion size was amazing!
Lido is an outstanding server!
Wow!!!! Awesome. Lots of food that tastes great for the money. It was odd to me that no Pasta came with the entrees. The waiter offered a little side for each of us but then never delivered it. Joe's Mama's meatballs were delicious and huge. The Chicken Parm was more like Turkey Parm, Massive! Everyone enjoyed their meal and the ambiance was old school cool. The veal was to die for and the calamari appetizer was exceptional. Do be prepared for a bit of a sour beer barrom smell....not terrible at all, but seemed a bit out of place. Overall I'd go back again for sure.
Food was amazing. They are also allergy-friendly.
The most terrible experience I’ve ever had waiting at a restaurant. I never write reviews but this was such a bad experience that I feel I must share. They didn’t seat us till 7:45 having a 7pm reservation even though we had gotten there at 6pm to enjoy some drinks first. Once seated, the appetizers were taking forever to come out. No one came to our table to apologize or explain why it was taking so long. After waiting quite some time after all that waiting to be seated, we decided to just get up and leave. No one even noticed us leaving even though we were seated right behind the entrance greeting desk. We were treated as we were invisible the whole time by our host. It wasn’t the waiters fault as he seemed overwhelmed with another large table with many guest. I blame the host for not having things under control and not coming to our table to apologize for all the inconveniences.
Great ambiance, great food, and great prices for that area of downtown--and I can't wait to have more of that addictive garlic bread!
Great service! Great seafood options.
Food was delicious and service was great. The portions are big so I suggest sharing.
Great old school Italian. Great spot for a group and service was amazing. Best meatball I have had in a while and the bacon fest winning pasta was out of this world.
Excellent restaurant. Great food and service. It seemed like a local neighborhood type restaurant vs franchise type restaurant. Highly recommend
Food was awful. Only one bathroom. Wine was good. Very loud and no seating. I paid $80 for a meal and it tasted like cardboard. The wine was amazing.
It’s a neighborhood spot for me - I continue to return for the outstanding food, despite a few things that are consistently lacking. There is ALWAYS a wait for your table even with a reservation. They always have 4+ young girls running the hostess/seating area and you’d think sitting people down and confirming available tables is a practice in rocket science. Several of them always have to go check for available tables multiple times, to return, but make no eye contact or provide any seating updates to the checked in parties. Every time they don’t have tables. So why are there available reservations? I waited 30+ minutes beyond my reservation time to be seated when dining with elderly family. No chairs to wait in - just stand. Same occurred when I brought a friend 8 months pregnant. 30+ minutes. No communication, follow up or apologies. The answer is always “people just aren’t leaving”. That’s because your service is incredibly slow. That said their food is unbelievable. Be prepared to wait, to be annoyed by the 17 hostesses that do nothing, and overly chatty service which makes for a very long and drawn out dinner. Get the Bolognese or the pepperoni pizza you will NOT be disappointed.
My wife and I sat at the bar for dinner on Saturday night, October 12th. Even though it was very busy and crowded at the bar, the bartenders were friendly, attentive and helpful recommending some options for appetizers and dinner. The food was very good and the portions quite large. We will be back.
Bartender Peter was excellent. Provided great service and insight. Very attentive.
The service was not good at all. Although the waiter seemed eager to help us with ordering he did not take ownership of the fact that he got the order wrong. He made it seem like he was doing me a favor by brining us what we ordered. Also the table was not cleaned promptly and we were never given actual dinner dishes. The food was mediocre. The meatballs were the only thing I found to be tasty. I would probably not go back there.
Huge portion sizes
We were sat 45 minutes after our reservation.
A great neighborhood place with solid and delicious Italian food. Great bar to hang for a drink and a pizza!!
Joes meatballs are awesome!!
Delicious and great service!!!👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼
Large portions and reasonable prices make this restaurant a place to return to.
Eating left overs as i type this. DELISH!!!!!
Great atmosphere with unbelievable food. The staff was amazing as well! Would definitely recommend for a new Italian spot in River North.
$14 for a batch cocktail is pathetic. If u don’t have time to mix them on the spot you should lower the price. We come to your place often but after the lousy manhattans last time we will think again. Please do better so we can return.
Love this place!
