Coco Pazzo Cafe
Coco Pazzo Café in Streeterville

Inspired by the cafés that line the piazzas in Florence, vibrant and lively Coco Pazzo Café is just steps away from Magnificent Mile shopping and hotels. The Café offers a casual atmosphere, a diverse menu, and Italian wines by the glass. As soon as the weather warms up, enjoy a table on the relaxing alfresco patio.

Our Menu

Straightforward, yet refined, our casual Tuscan Italian menu is comfort food at its best. Open all day after 11:30 a.m., you’ll find fresh pastas, salads, paninis, roasted meats, and delicate fish to fit any diet or appetite. We only use fresh seasonal ingredients and offer a variety of handmade sauces, breads, dressings, soups, and pastas. view the menus page

Executive Chef Eric Hammond

If you ask chef Eric Hammond why he returned to the Café after a four-year tenure at Va Pensiero in Evanston, IL, he warms like the Tuscan sun and says, “Tuscan cuisine is food the way it should be—simple, honest and full of flavor.” And this is exactly what you can expect with his menu. House-made pastas, rich ragùs, tender fish, and savory pork dishes are what he puts his passion into every day. view chef hammond’s bio

Our Alfresco Patio

Our alfresco patio opens in May when the weather warms up and stays open well into fall. The patio serves a full menu all afternoon. Come, relax, and enjoy some of the best food, wine, and people watching Chicago has to offer.

Our Il Pasto Box Meals & Catering

Enjoy a complete boxed meal to travel with you to the office, beach, boat, or a concert in Millennium Park. Each is a treasure chest that could include selections like: sette vegetali salad, panini and chips, or a pasta salad with chicken or smoked salmon, and a dessert. (24-hour advance order; delivery is extra.)

For larger groups of 150 to 200 guests, we’re happy to arrange use of the entire restaurant. We’ll customize menus, prepare specialty drinks, and work with you to select wine and floral arrangements to make your occasion memorable. view the menus page
