    Coco Pazzo Cafe is an Italian restaurant with a great atmosphere and colorful interior. It is a more casual version of the also-popular Coco Pazzo, one of the best Italian restaurants in Chicago. In summer, it is a nice place to eat outdoors with its sidewalk seating.

    Prices are very reasonable and a Sunday brunch is offered with different dishes every week. Service is very good and dishes are filling.

    Dress is casual. Reservations are not required but are accepted.

    Hours are:
    Mon-Thu 11:30am-10:30pm
    Fri-Sat 11:30am-11:00pm
    Sun 11:30am-10:00pm

    Favorite Dish: For an appetizer, try the Octopus dish. Don't bother with the calamari - I've had better.

    The salads are excellent. You can't go wrong with any of them.

    For dinner, every person at our table had a pasta dish. I had a taste of a few and the spinach ravioli was my favorite. A risotto of the day is also available.

    To finish off your dinner, try a capuccino. They make a good one here.

    Coco Pazzo: Upscale Italian

    by Etoile2B Updated Feb 8, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A great, upscale Italian place. You'll feel like you're in a little Tuscan villa when you step into the restaurant. The waitstaff is friendly and knowledgeable without being overbearing. The Tuscan-style food is always delicious.

    Favorite Dish: I've never had a bad meal here. I recommend ordering a bottle of wine and trying it all.

    Coco Pazzo: River North-Tuscan Italian

    by Dabs Updated Jan 22, 2005

    Coco Pazzo is a classy Italian eatery in River North. Lisa (shekaago) and I went on a weekday afternoon when it was not overly busy, the service was prompt.

    Favorite Dish: I started off with a pumpkin ravioli appetizer which was only big enough for one person and ordered the special pizza of the day, a wood fired salami pizza

    Coco Pazzo is one of the best Italian restaurants in Chicago. It is Tuscan-inspired cooking with great pastas, seafoods, and steaks. The interior is comfortable and inviting and the service is always very good.

    Dress is business casual. Reservations are recommended. Valet parking is available, but there are parking garages within a couple blocks of the restaurant.

    Hours are:
    Lunch: 11:30am - 2:30pm Monday through Friday
    Dinner: 5:30pm - 10:30pm Monday through Thursday
    5:30pm - 11pm Friday and Saturday
    5pm - 10pm Sunday

    Favorite Dish: The Osso Bucco is excellent. Also, any risotto special is worth a try. If you like seafood and pasta, try the Spaghetti alla Pirata (shellfish and pasta).

    The wine list is full of very good wines. The coffee is also good, and for dessert, you can't go wrong with anything.

    The only thing I didn't like was the soup. It was a potato soup and couldn't have been more bland.
