i had high hopes for gioco as it’s in the south loop not too far from where i live, but everything from the food to the service was just mediocre for dinner. i haven’t been back since for lunch/dinner, but i did give it another go around for brunch (after reading some good things), and it was actually quite tasty and decently priced.

One of my favs

I’ve been here many, many times. Just this past weekend, I went there for brunch for the first time…and still they have yet to disappoint. I’ve tried their appetizers, pastas, other entrees, desserts, cappuccinos, cocktails, french toast…everything is delicious. Plus, their wait staff is super friendly and wonderful.

Also interesting to note…the back of the space used to be an old speakeasy and the front of the restaurant was previously Al Capone’s florist.

Beet Carpaccio

My favorite…I get it every time. Thinly sliced beets, frisse salad, and truffle oil. Delicious!

Blood Orange Tart

This is a special, it’s not on their regular dessert menu, and I’ve only had it only once…but I still think about it.

Good brunch

I’ve been here before for dinner and wasn’t too satisfied by the value, but I wanted to give Sunday brunch a try since I’ve reviews saying that brunch was better than dinner. After finally getting a chance to try it, I’d have to agree – the brunch is better than the lunch/dinner. The prices are all pretty reasonable (around $8 a dish) and the food was good. The frittata’s, while relatively flat, had fluffy egg and the roasted potatoes were very tasty with lots of garlic flavoring. The best part is that there’s no line for brunch so if you’re tired of waiting in line at Bongo Room, Yolk, or Orange, then just head over to Gioco.

Today it was bacon and squash - Frittata Al Forno at Gioco

Frittata Al Forno

Today’s special was bacon and squash with fresh mozzarella which was a pretty nice combination – some meat and not too heavy.

Brioche Alla Francese at Gioco

Brioche Alla Francese

Large sized chunks of french toast stuffed with banana – good, but could have used more flavor in my opinion.

The homemade pasta was great. The vibe felt trendy, but still comfortable as a ‘neighborhood’ kind of place.

    While Italian cuisine involves many meats, cheeses, seafood, and vegetables, most of us associate Italian cuisine first and foremost with pasta. Pasta comes in many shapes and sizes, and each shape... read more
