The Best of Chicago: Tre Soldi

Tre Soldi restaurant in Chicago by restaurateur Jack Weiss has remained a popular spot to enjoy Roman-style cuisine since opening last year.

It’s a bright and inviting space, modeled on a trattoria, which captures the Roman experience and completes it with true Italian comfort food. Fresh and earthy meat, seafood and vegetables play an important role, and Roman pizza comes hand-tossed, with thin, crisp crust and tender edges. Rich pastas are crafted for peak flavors, including carbonara, Cacao E Pepe, or Bucatini all’Amatriciana.  House-made gelati and an ever-changing rustic crostata make Tre Soldi’s menu one of a kind.

The exquisite menu is the work of executive chef, Frederico Comacchio. Born in Italy, Federico started cooking when he was in his early teens, inspired by his mother’s family feasts. Frederico is passionate about the clean, clear flavors of Tuscany. His early hands-on culinary education took him through Italy including Genoa and Milan where he worked for two Michelin Star restaurants, and after moving to Chicago in 2001 he worked as executive chef at Phil Stefani’s 437 Rush.

Tre Soldi, meaning “three coins”, garners inspiration from the Trevi Fountain, made famous in the 1954 movie Three Coins in the Fountain. Murals of the iconic fountain and the rooftops of Rome bring a warm ambiance to the casual, contemporary atmosphere.  Glass tiled pillars, an open kitchen and large windows that open to the neighborhood create a lively surrounding that’s perfect for gathering with friends.

Tre Soldi is located at 212 East Ohio Street, Chicago, IL 60611.
