Private Dining

We are pleased to offer opulent environments & special services to complement our delicious food and wine and make your next corporate or social event a smash:

The Main Salotto: Patterned after a stylish watering hole in Venice, the Main Salotto brings a touch of the old world to Chicago’s bustling River North Gallery District. The soft, gold-colored walls, gently gilded ceiling and carved wood chandeliers and sconces capped with ivory silk shades cast a warm glow over the art-laden room. Luxurious golden-colored damask drapes and a collection of crystal and glass objets d’art are reflected in a hand-crafted , mercury mirror-topped 35’ long bar, painted in the style of an 18th century piece of Venetian furniture. Fruit wood lattice back bar stools offer a stylish and comfortable perch from which to enjoy our extensive list of Italian sparkling wines and fine European spirits. The Main Salotto can accommodate 50 – 75 for a variety of daytime business or personal events. One raised platform, framed in silk drapes and a magnificent oil painting, offers a large round table of 8 complete with its own chandelier.

The Doge’s Room: Complete with seating for 8 Guests, the Doge’s Room is a petite, semi-private, three-walled enclave with a large gilded mirror, quilted silk wainscotting and hand-painted corner cabinets filled with Murano glass decanters and antique grappa bottles. A silk lamp by Venetian impresario Mariano Fortuny hangs over the skirted table.

The Piazza Dining Room: The focal point of our first floor private dining room is a magnificent open kitchen. Patterned after an upscale custom kitchen complete with antique cabinets, it is perfect for interacting with our talented Chefs or for various food and wine presentations. There is a granite-topped bar, fronted in quilted sage green leather, and 8 bar stools that offer a fantastic vantage point on the workings of the Prosecco kitchen. Filled with gilded antique kitchenware and luscious foodstuffs from the Italian heartland, the Chef’s counter and its adjacent dining room can seat up to 45 Guests for a bridal shower or corporate dinner party. Three mahogany vitrines showcase Murano glass and watercolors of Venice. An ornate braided skylight makes this the perfect place for a daytime function.

La Cantinella: Our lower-level cache is a lavish and consummately inviting haven for pampering up to 50 of your closest business colleagues or friends. This intimate space, the color of Brunello di Montalcino, is designed for a variety of events — from an upscale San Danielle prosciutto and Prosecco tasting to a convivial rehearsal dinner, gala office holiday party or important corporate meeting. The extravagant decor is accented with gilded mirrors, jade green Chinoiserie lamps and velvet drapes. A glass-walled wine room, framed like a Renaissance masterpiece, allows you to dine amongst the restaurant’s wine collection. One magnificent table can accommodate 16 within the confines of the cellar, with room for another 40 for a sit down dinner, 50 for cocktails and antipasti. Look for La Cantinella in fall of 2008.

Menu & Event Planning: From life’s delicacies, like tartufi bianchi d’Alba to the finest Barolos, let our imaginative Chefs prepare an exquisite menu for you. We’ll be happy to work within your budget, too, to provide the biggest splash for your event dollar. And, our staff of seasoned event planners will be on hand to coordinate all of the small details that make the biggest impact on guests. Our goal is for you to be an “impressed” guest at your own special event!

We look forward to speaking with you directly. Please feel free to phone us at 312.951.9500 or send an e-mail to to arrange a tour. Needless to say, no effort will be spared to make this event spectacular in every way!

Grazie Mille,
