Fiorentino's Cucina Italiana

2901 N Ashland Ave Chicago, IL 60657


Fiorentino's Cucina Italiana's menu brims with rustic soups and house-made pastas that have earned it recognition from several local news outlets, including WTTW’s Check, Please! Inside the quaint restaurant, tender veal, chicken, and seafood simmer atop heaping portions of pastas, and Fiorentino's chefs handpick the choicest Italian wines from small vineyards to pair with their simple, flavorful fare, which includes gluten-free options. The talented staff of Fiorentino's also hosts Italian cooking classes that dig into pasta-making, among other subjects. The restaurant’s exposed-brick walls, artfully worn wooden floors, tuscan orange and yellow hues, and to-scale model of the Leaning Tower of Pizza built with wine bottles capture the ambiance of Italy. Its outdoor patio brims with blossoming flowers and vines during the spring, and during the winter, indoor heating and soft, piazza-inspired lights keep the space cozy.
