"Delizioso" Northern Italian fare "true to the authentic flavors of Italy" does it for diners who recommend the "perfectly cooked pastas with complex and satisfying sauces" at this "rustic" South Looper set in a circa-1890 building; "friendly service" , a "thoughtful wine list" and moderate tabs also help ensure it's a "keeper."

I love Gioco! Their pastas are not only great for the South Loop, but they'd stack up among the best in the city. If you like thin crust pizza, definitely try theirs out. Very yummy. The manager and waitstaff are really personable, too.

Gioco used to be my favorite Italian restaurant and I used to bring all my out of town visitors here. I am not sure what happened, but the quality just aren't as good as it used to. And it is not busy there anymore either. The restaurant used to always have a wait even during the week, but now it is pretty empty even on the weekends. I still really liked their risotto this time, but the pork chop was somewhat disappointing. Their wait staffs are still extremely friendly and knowledgeable though.

Great atmosphere and service. I love the food and so does my 3-year-old. (And the staff are very welcoming to children!)
