Classic Italian dishes with a contemporary flair have made Trattoria No.10 a Chicago favorite since 1989 and one of the highest rated Italian restaurants in Chicago on TripAdvisor. The subdued elegance of the interior, with arched walkways, murals and original art, provides an intimate atmosphere that is perfect for pre-theatre dining. Unique homemade ravioli like the popular butternut and acorn squash with a sweet walnut butter sauce, as well as the house-made spicy sausage with arrabiata sauce have remained favorites on the menu for over 25 years. Trattoria No.10 takes great pride in supporting small, independent, local sustainable farms and adhering to the sustainability requirements described by the Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch.  All major credit cards accepted.
