Carnivale is a restaurant in Chicago with lively decorations and food from South America, Spain and the Caribbean. Its Latin flair spices up the food, decor and vibe. Carnivale is located at 702 W. Fulton St., Chicago, Ill. 60661.

“We heard it’s really fun and has good food. And the word ‘Carnivale’ sounds like you’re going to a carnival, which is how it looks, too,” said Lally Johnson, junior.

Carnivale’s liveliness and uniqueness is definitely catching the eyes of many because there’s more than one group going there.

“My mom told me about it, and I looked it up and it’s huge with lots of colors and lights. It’s definitely nothing like the restaurants around here. The food is supposed to have a lot of flavor, but I’m going for the experience,” said Ava Chami, junior.
