SOLO Trattoria

About

Margherita PizzaArizona-focused. Seasonally-inspired. Italian cooking.

Inspired by the neighborhood storefront restaurants found throughout Chicago, SOLO Trattoria is a casual, comfortable spot with a seasonal menu driven by the best of what’s available right now. Complimented by a carefully-selected wine list featuring over 35 bottles, craft beers and signature cocktails, the menu is respectful of tradition but not bound by it.
