Bar Lupo is an Italian Pub in River North and eating here is like being at a party that hasn’t gotten going yet. But we don’t mind - it’s actually nice that the space feels low-key despite having loud music and somewhat dark interiors. It ends up differentiating it from all the other italian spots in the neighborhood. Solid bar snacks, decent pastas and red sauce classics like chicken parmesan make it a great option for casual Italian downtown.
Bar Lupo is permanently closed.

Osteria La Madia
Keeping up with the Joneses is dangerous, which is why you shouldn't be swayed by La Madia's fancy new dishes. Stick to the pizza.

Classy without being overly pretentious. Riccardo Trattoria is one of our favorite Italian restaurants around.
