Owner & Chef | Stefano Roman

Born and raised in Venice, Chef & Owner, Stefano Roman, arrived in Chicago at 33. He began cooking professionally simply because his natural, incredible talent enabled him to do so. 

Brought up by the rich traditions of European home cooking, PR Italian Bistro specializes in rustic bistro-style, Italian-inspired, global cuisine. 

Stefano's talents are further showcased in his daily blackboard menu, where his creativity shines and dishes are composed based on his imaginative cravings and local market availability. His goal is to bring unique, creative, exceptional meals to the plate in a way that will keep you coming back for more.

With Stefano's creations at the forefront, the Bar at PR, headed up by partner & wife, Juliana Montebello-Roman, offers a hand-picked selection of world-class brews, a global wine list, only top-shelf spirits, & original recipe cocktails. 

Knowledgeable, courteous, attentive service. Warm, inviting atmosphere. Culinary events year-round. Seasonal outdoor café.

What's the PR referencing, you ask? It's our way of paying homage to our roots, Pizza Rustica, a small trattoria opened in 2005 that is now the internationally recognized bistro we are today.
