Hidden gem

This restaurant is in a sort of unappealing strip mall (with the Arlington Heights Senior Center), but the inside is lovely. There is a beautiful mural of an Italian scene that reminds me of the murals in Greektown depicting Greek scenes! I went for lunch for my birthday with a friend. There is... read more

Nice spot, good food. Since we've had it for takeout, we were surprised that pizza is not on the the dinner menu - but they'll make one anyway. Just ask.

Nice place to meet for lunch or dinner, cozy atmosphere, good service. Pasta was cooked just right, veal & chicken dishes were well prepared & tasty. One of my favorite places to meet a friend.

We had not been there in quite a while and found good food and excellent service. Is it the best Italian food I have ever had, no, but it is good. Only complaint was I... More

This is my favorite Italian restaurant. My husband and I go there every so often and every time, we are not disappointed. On this visit my husband had ordered their salmon and said it was the best he ever had. Their menu has so much to choose from and they do have specials written on a board at the back... More

The salad was just basic, however the garlic dressing was amazing. One of the best meals I have ever experienced. The next night's dinner was as awful as... More

We would like to apologize for the meal you received on your second visit to our restaurant. We always aim to give our customers prompt service, while also providing them with a quality meal. Clearly we were not up to our service and cooking standards as our service was slow and your meal was not as enjoyable as it should... More

My wife and I found this place by accident. The name is Italian but being of Sicilian descent I am very critical of Italian restaurants. We enter and see olive oil on the table, always a good sign. Immediately, a bread basket appears; some hard crust bread and thick Sicilian bread with a smear of tomato and tomato sauce. Just... More

We've been going here with friends for years. The food is always fantastic with a "large enough" menu plus many specials to choose from. The prices are very reasonable and the service is impecable. Immediately walking in, the bar is on one side and the restaurant tables in front of you. It gives the feeling of being cramped, but they... More
