Chicago Restaurants



Three Aces

Three Aces Review

The rustic menu here, heavy on pasta and pizza, fits nicely among the Little Italy neighbors, but the grittier rock 'n' roll vibe and free-flowing craft beer makes Three Aces stand out among the other classic mom-and-pop restaurants. Expect less eggplant Parm and more farmhouse Italian: there's grilled rapini with blood sausage, wheat berry, celery heart, radish, and satsuma, and pappardelle Bolognese with seasoned mascarpone, mint, and Parmesan. Desserts are never without a splash of healthy booze, like cake doughnuts with coffee glaze and stout punch during winter and St-Germain elderflower liqueur–spiked Italian ice in the summer.

  • Chicago and Where Else

    We've never been to Chicago other than changing planes.

    We'd like to go for a few days but that's a lot of flying to spend 3-4 days in one place.

    Any add-ons in the area?

    Thanks. Read more
