In 1996, Jack Weiss was motivated by the cafes that line the piazzas of Florence, Italy and introduced Coco Pazzo Cafe to the Streeterville neighborhood of Chicago where it remained for 20 years. In January of 2017, Coco Pazzo Cafe merged with Weiss’s Roman inspired restaurant, Tre Soldi, and moved around the corner to its new location. The new Coco Pazzo Cafe combines the familiar with the fabulous. The menu features time-honored Tuscan favorites alongside Roman inspired dishes, including a variety of ultra-thin crusted pizzas. The new atmosphere is both lively and vibrant with beautiful Modigliani style murals lining the walls.


Just steps away from Magnificent Mile shopping, Northwestern Hospital and a variety of wonderful hotels, the Cafe  serves throughout the afternoon and into the evening. And, when the weather warms, the sidewalk patio welcomes patrons to enjoy the summer breeze while dining alfresco.

Coco Pazzo, the more sophisticated Tuscan cousin of Coco Pazzo Cafe, is located in the River North neighborhood. Since it opened in 1992, business professionals, celebrities, politicians and those wanting to share a special occasion with friends or family have come to Coco Pazzo for a memorable, Tuscan inspired fine dining experience.
