Gioco Review

The name means "game" in Italian, and the restaurant fulfills the promise not with venison, but in the spirit of having fun. The decor is distressed-urban, with brick walls and well-worn hardwood floors—the space is said to have been used by the Chicago gangsters of early 1900s as a gambling house—but the menu is comfort-Italian, with rustic fare like homemade linguine with Manila clams, grilled lamb chops, and roasted sea bass with puttanesca sauce. It's a cozy, neighborhoody spot that keeps the regulars coming back.
