Chicago – It takes more than a great steak to make a great steakhouse.
Gibsons Italia has an amazing pedigree and serves up world class steaks in a extraordinary glass and steel environment. The view down the Chicago River and skyline is so stunning that it defies description. Dining on the deck with massive buildings surrounding you and the moonlit Chicago River flowing beneath you is worthy of comparison to dining on the grand canal in Venice. The restaurant does have Italia in its name so I opted for the nightly pasta special. It came with shredded truffle mushrooms sprinkled lavishly, pancetta, and a secret butter sauce blend (at least secret for me) that was nothing short of fabulous. Gibsons Italia isn’t really an Italian steakhouse, it’s an urban masterpiece of architecture that offers creative Italian dishes, superb seafood, fabulous steaks and the best bar in town. Gibson’s Italia covers all the bases. They even have fabulous French fries. Bravo Gibsons Restaurant Group for creating another classic. “Gibsons Italia” makes a not so subtle statement. “I am as good as I gets in Chicago.” I intend on becoming a Gibsons Italia regular.
