Food was great and reasonably priced but the service was not up to par! The waiter was not friendly and in some cases rude! Perhaps it was because it was a holiday and they were busy!

This is a neighborhood treasure. Conveniently located in the Windermere House (OK, I live in the building), it is one block north of the Museum of Science and Industry and one block west of the CT A Route 6 heading downtown.

I enjoyed the food, but it was pricey - and I am accustomed to New York price. It was old-fashioned, solid Italian.

This large but relaxed restaurant on the west side of Chicago turned out to be a good choice for us. We love Italian food and Piccolo Mondo has tasty food and an extensive menu. The service was attentive. The pasta was particularly good.
