Merlo on Maple

16 W. Maple St.
Chicago, IL, 60610, United States
TEL: (312) 335-8200

A native of the Emilia-Romagna region in Italy where prosciutto di Parma and Parmigiano-Reggiano originated, chef Luisa Silvia Marani now offers homemade Bolognese sauces and pastas to Chicago's Gold Coast residents at this authentic Italian eatery. Located in a historic brownstone that is more than one hundred years old, Merlo on Maple features wood paneling and white-clothed tables topped with silver candlesticks and bouquets of red roses, making it a popular choice for date night. An extensive wine list complements signature dishes like the handmade tagliatelle al ragu Bolognese.

Insider Tip:

Fans of tiramisu should make sure to try chef Marani's rare authentic version which features angel bread cake dipped in espresso and Grand Marnier with marscapone and dark chocolate.
