Apparently it’s Italian food day, because here’s the second Italian restaurant today coming soon to the near north area. This is the project hinted at a while back from Coco Pazzo owner Jack Weiss— it’s called Tre Soldi, which means three coins, which… yes, you guessed where it came from (and now that theme song will be stuck in your head). Like the Trevi fountain, it’s a Roman restaurant offering thin-crust Roman-style pizza, specialties like carciofi alla Giudea (artichokes), and pastas like Bucatini all’Amatriciana and Cacio e Pepe. The menu was worked out by Coco Pazzo executive chef Federico Comacchio and Tre Soldi’s new chef Brandon Wolff, who worked for the Bartolotta Restaurant Group (where he’s proudest of luring Madison Farmer’s Market purveyors to Milwaukee to provide produce to the company) and then came to Chicago to work at Osteria via Stato; he’s also been at One Sixty Blue, La Madia and most recently The Signature Room. The restaurant should open at 212 E. Ohio in June— or just about the time you finally get “Three Coins in the Fountain” out of your head.
