Lunch New Menu Italian Magnificient Mile Streeterville

You know their bread from your local market and their cafe in Oak Brook, but the folks at Labriola give you the full restaurant treatment at their first outpost in the city. Located off the Magnificent Mile, Labriola Ristorante and Cafe offers diners either casual cafe experience or fully-seated, Italian hospitality in their dining room. The recent addition of a lunch menu, welcomed news to locals and tourists alike, has our interest piqued, check out our choice snaps:

This is an Italian restaurant after all and a platter of Salumi and Formaggio is the only way to start your meal. Meats and cheeses change daily accompanied by jams and variety of olives.

Labriola offers daily soup specials on their new lunch menu. Tomato Soup is a classic for a reason, especially when topped with grated cheese and a balsamic drizzle.

Tomato Soup. You want it.

​All of Labriola's pastas are hand-made and in house.

The Bucatina all'Amartriciana is not only tough to pronounce but a taste of Italy with guanciale, caramelized onions, tomatoes and a Pecorino cheese topping.

Neapolitan style pizza can provide the onus for any Italian-inspired lunch. The Goat Cheese and Grilled Vegetable pizza offers up seasonal grilled vegetables with baby spinach, extra virgin olive oil and topped with California goat and mozzarella cheese.

The Slow Roasted Berkshire Porchetta Sandwich had our attention from the get-go. Porky goodness complemented with rapini and calabrian pepper spread.
