Ripasso (my favorite Italian spot in Chicago)

So glad Chef Theo did not leave Chicago when Terragusto closed! The food at Ripasso is just as delicious as it was at Terragusto and the service has improved greatly. They make their bread and pastas daily.

We ordered the 3-course chef’s selection menu and licked each and every plate to completion. Highlights included onion custard with braised mushrooms and all pasta dishes!!! And, the chef was very amenable to a completely vegetarian meal.

Ripasso beats any Italian restaurant in Chicago, including Spiaggia.
