Forte is attached to Symphony Center, making it a convenient place to grab a meal or drink before or after a CSO concert. But the just-fine Mediterranean food means that convenience is the main incentive to visit. Dishes like dolma, octopus with romesco, and rigatoni, while inoffensive, are also uninspiring. And at $29 for a bowl of pasta, the expectation is that it’ll taste better than a box of Bertolli. So unless time constraints are a huge factor or it’s -30 degrees outside, we recommend checking out some of the other great restaurants in the Loop.
