Coco Pazzo has been hailed as having the best Italian wine list in Chicago by Gambero Rosso, an internationally renowned authority on Italian wine and restaurants. Wine Director Tamra Weiss was presented with the award at the Tre Bicchieri World Tour Wine Tasting kick-off in Chicago on Feb. 7.
“I am honored to be recognized with this prestigious award,” Weiss says. “I am so proud that our restaurant was singled out by this world-renowned organization.”
“We are thrilled to be recognized for the quality and diversity of the wines on our menu,” husband and co-owner Jack Weiss adds. “It is even more special as the recognition comes during our 25th anniversary year.”
Gambero Rosso selects the Best Italian Wine List winners via a panel of experts who dine at selected restaurants without identifying themselves. Restaurants cannot apply to be considered. Coco Pazzo was the only Chicago restaurant to be listed this year.
Containing more than 300 selections from across Italy, Coco Pazzo’s wine list has been honored with several awards, including the Wine Spectator Award of Excellence for 13 straight years.
Opened at 300 W. Hubbard St. in Chicago in 1992, Coco Pazzo features seasonal Tuscan cuisine.
