We had a 5 course dinner and appies in the private dinning room. Food was homestyle service which is a nice change. Portions were large and food was excellent. The cheese ravioli was amazing and i would order it again.

Great atmosphere. I love the sausage bread appetizer. I ordered steak from here once and it was delicious. I have never been disappointed when dining here.

I know this place is owned by Dick Portillo founder/owner of the fantastic chain of Portillo's Hot dogs and Barnelli's Pasta fast food joints however, this place is horrible food!!! People tell me it's their favorite Italian restaurant in Naperville/Aurora area, must NOT be Italian!!! The Italian food at Barnelli's inside many Portillo's restaurants is way better tasting and more... More

Had lunch there recently. Food is similar (meaning good) to other offerings at Portillo's chain, but presented in a higher quality setting: rustic Italian environment, fireplace, white tablecloths, booths with drapes. Fresh bread and dipping olive oil brought to the table while we waited. Waitress was very attentive and knowledgeable. Lunch was served promptly and portions were quite large.

We have been there three times. The food is good and the atmosphere is wonderful. The first time was the best.

Been there several times and recently hosted a family style dinner for 12. Christine arranged it and couldn't have been more helpful, we all had a wonderful time and the food was terrific! Everyone raved about the service and the meal. Went back the following week with out of town guests and they too were impressed. It's not pretentious but... More

Had lunch there for the 2nd time now. Love this place! There is plenty of parking, and the restaurant is lots bigger than it looks from the outside. There is a large piano bar, and several other rooms of varying sizes, one with a fireplace. The idea is that you are visiting a house in Italy. My friend and I... More

My family and I have been going here for years but as of the last two or three years the overall experience has gone down hill. Each time we go back in hopes of changes for the better, we are disappointed. The staff are not the problem. They are great. It is the quality of the food and the cleanliness... More

We were in Chicago and randomly stopped at this restaurant and I am so glad we did. The drinks and food were amazing. The staff was very helpful and recommended their favorites. I had a seafood linguini in red sauce and the sauce was very light and like nothing I've had before. The bread was delicious. The environment is one... More

The lasagna was great. The ambiance is like a little Italian bistro. We will definitely be back again for the food.
