Eduardo’s Enoteca Restaurant Review

About the restaurant & décor: Eduardo's Enoteca is the antithesis of nightlife that’s just around the corner on Division; it's intimate and personal, Gold Coasters' own little secret. Two-top wooden tables and a small wine bar make up the one-room dining space. Windows look out to pristine Dearborn Street.

Likes: The tucked-away restaurant makes for clandestine date nights or solo dinners.
Dislikes: Limited menu.

Food & Drinks: Edwardo's has quite a number of locations spread around the Chicagoland area, but this outpost (named the aforementioned Eduardo’s Enoteca) breaks free from the corporate-formula pizza mold with a selection of crostini (rapini-pancetta, shrimp-avocado), salads that have a lemony Caesar dressing, and pasta sauced with everything from lemon juice and black pepper to classic, eight-hour Bolognese. There’s pizza, too, but now it’s more rustic and hand-rolled, resulting in options such as shaved artichoke and Parmigiano and rapini pesto with prosciutto, fresh ricotta and green olives. As for the wine, it’s affordable and offered by the flight, though Italian beers and a handful of cocktails are a diversion from the main event. If you come during brunch, order a Bloody Mary with house bacon-poblano-infused vodka, and the truffled egg and Italian sausage sandwich.
