I mostly rate restaurants based on service and food. This is as good as it gets for a Trattoria in Chicago. Between the service we received from Danny and the menu items he suggested, this established restaurant is a keeper at the top of our list! We felt like we were right at home and loved every item Danny suggested.... Especially the meatballs, caprese salad, eggplant parmesan, and brick chicken. They make their own lemon cello, which is a real treat if you like a lemon drop! Also, a great wine list. Don't miss trying out this place!

We came in for the annual restaurant and food convention and had been told to go here. Great recommendation! Large portions and excellent service. Management was very attentive to our table. We'll be back next time we're in town.

The meatballs are to die for!!! They are the best I've ever tasted. The service is excellent also. When it's crowded, it's a little loud.

I went there last night with two friends, one was celebrating a birthday. The staff was very helpful with setting up a cake for his birthday. The food was wonderful, the chef was very friendly and talked to us for a while. Our waiter, Michael was the best. When you go, ask to have Michael as your server. He was very attentive. He was also very funny. The restaurant isn't as busy as it should be so try it out and you will want to come back again and again. It was a great night with great food and a great server.

I ate at Ballo last week with my family and had an unbelievable meal. The pizza was phenomenal. The crust was thin, light and delicious. I ordered a steak for my main course, which had a wonderful flavor and was cooked to perfection. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to my friends and colleagues. The portions are generous, the atmosphere is upbeat and the service is friendly. I can't wait to go back!

I went to Ballo with some friends and the meatballs are absolutely incredible! The atmosphere is like a cool diner with red vinyl booths and flat screen DVDs playing old movies. The crowd is the young 20-30s. I enjoyed the food at Ballo but the restaurant was soooooo noisy. The music was so loud that I couldn't hear the person sitting next to me , least of all the waiter. I would recommend going on an off-night when the restaurant isn't so crowded.
