Piccolo Mondo has been a proud part of the Hyde Park community for 37 years.

Since 1985, Piccolo Mondo has been dedicated to quality food and exceptional service. Located at 1642 East 56th Street, two blocks from Lakeshore Drive, across from the Museum of Science and Industry, and steps away from the University of Chicago`s campus, the restaurant provides an atmosphere that is hard to come by.

Serving gourmet Italian cuisine, with a touch of tapas from Spain, Piccolo Mondo is one of a kind in the Hyde Park neighborhood. With the new addition of our Argentine bakery, there is more than enough culture to absorb.

We are committed to our authenticity just as much as our customers.
