Bacchanalia, Chicago, IL

Bacchanalia Restaurant Review

: Bacchanalia offers old-world Italian-American cooking: pastas rich with red sauce, classic chicken Vesuvio, baked clams. The restaurant has been around for what seems like forever; at the root of that is consistency and customer loyalty. Service is laid-back and friendly. This Chicago neighborhood place has become a standby for good reason.
