Across from Millennium Park and situated along Chicago’s Cultural Mile, Acanto Restaurant + Wine Bar is a treasured destination for those who appreciate authentic and approachable Italian food in a conversation-friendly atmosphere. Whether you are dining pre- or post- a concert, theatre show or visit to one of Chicago’s world class museums, catching up with friends over brunch, or taking a break from the work day for lunch or happy hour, Acanto is an ideal and sophisticated setting.

In addition to fine Italian cuisine, Acanto also boasts an award-winning wine list featuring selections from each of Italy’s twenty regions. For the last three consecutive years, Acanto received 3-star ratings in the World of Fine Wine “World’s Best Wine List” and was also awarded a 2-glass “Best of Award of Excellence” by Wine Spectator, which is awarded to restaurants who “display excellent breadth across multiple regions and significant vertical depth of top wines, along with superior presentation”.

Acanto’s vibrant and intimate dining room may be reserved for parties of 65 to 100 guests. And, the patio on Michigan Avenue is perfect for pre-dinner cocktails and mingling. For smaller gatherings, Acanto’s “family table” can accommodate up to 16. This is ideal for birthdays, anniversaries, business luncheons and more.
