Situated a few steps away from the renowned Millennium Park, and along the famous Chicago’s Cultural Mile, Acanto is the ultimate destination for those who appreciate Italian food, and a delicious range of carefully selected Italian wine. Executive chef Christopher Gawronski aims to please all customers who appreciate good wine and authentic Italian food inspired by the time spent as a child at his father’s Italian restaurants.


Acanto’s sommelier Jon McDaniel is one of the top wine professionals in America with an impressive background in numerous prints, TV and radio appearances. At Acanto, where he also serves as General Manager, McDaniel drew on his time spent living in Trento and Piemonte to hand-select each wine, representing all 20 regions of Italy giving you one of the most authentic Italian experiences in Chicago.


Proving you can enjoy quality wine without breaking the bank, Acanto offer a ‘Happy Hour’ every Monday to Friday serving 3 authentic Italian wines on the menu where you can try all each one in a 3 oz glass for only $10.
