Piccolo Sogno is a place to dine well. Prepare to eat traditional Italian in the splendor of elegant rooms and hanging chandeliers. The dining experience is beautiful: the plates are pretty, the flavors have depth, and the textures are magical. It is no wonder that the dining rooms are packed late into the night.
Piccolo Sogno is an indulgent experience. The chic eatery focuses on cooking simple with sophistication, creating dishes that are perfectly crispy, creamy, and chewy. I relish food whose textural notes make sense. Pay note fair foodies, the balsamic at Piccolo Sogno is impressive. The balsamic has a thick body that is sweet and pungent. Probably some of the best balsamic I have tasted in Chicago.
On my first visit to Piccolo Sogno, I ordered a little bit of this and that for dinner. The order included griglia mista, roasted duck, and salmon. The fresh ingredients and subtle infusion of olive oil stayed true to the traditional Italian experience. Average price per person is $50 U.S. dollars. P.s. Ladies rouge your cheeks and gents shine your shoes. The food and ambiance attracts a handsome crowd. Infine, it is my pleasure to share my tasting gallery! Use your imagination and let my appetizing pictures transport you to Piccolo Sogno.

SALMONE CON POMODORINI Grilled salmon, broccolini, marinated tomatoes with Mediterranean olives and basil
DESSERT FOR THOUGHT:
Be sure to leave room for dessert. If not, carry-out dessert. I recommend the custard filled pastry tower called the “Millefoglie.” This decadent dessert is a “little dream.” The custard is the best part. This vanilla-cream is set perfectly above sugar coated pastry layers. Delizioso!
