Great Authentic Italian

I was recently in Lake Forest on Business staying at the Holiday Inn. Talked to one of the managers and he recommended his friend's restaurant which was less than 1/4 mile away, said it was a great little family owned place by a couple from Italy. Sooooo....had to try it and he was absolutely... read more

This family runs an excellent Italian restaurant for quite a few years. I recall when they first opened when Noel, owner chef, was fresh from Il Forneo... his food is always wonderful. The specials such as his mushroom soup and rack of lamb are especially excellent. I do not visit this restaurant as frequently as I did in the past... More

I have eaten there many many times and it is always a toss up to get the special or a good ole favorite. When fish is the special, it is always cooked to perfection and is hard to beat, but on the other hand the greek chicken is to die for, always moist and flavorful. Noel, makes all his own... More

You have to eat here if you love GREAT Italian food. The carbonara is the best I have had since leaving NYC (a long time ago). I have considered moving to the area just so I can eat there more often.

What's not to like. Good northern Italian cooking. We go each time we travel to the area to visit family. Their specials are not to be overlooked--we had roast duck w/cherry sauce. Portions are always very generous. Prices are very reasonable. Friendly staff. It's a small family owned & run place (12 tables, or so) and fills up fast w/locals.... More

We found this restaurant through friends who are regulars. We've been regulars ever since. They have specials every night and highly recommend trying them out. The usual menu choices have all been great as well. We love the Sizzling Feta appetizer! The service is great and we've never had bad service or food there. They also cater if you need... More

This was our first time we dined at Tutto's. The menu is basic Italian and not with an overwhelming number of choices. I had a pizza which was very balanced with flavor and texture. The crust was great. My friend's chicken picatta was tender and juicy and she loved the capers in lemon butter sauce. This is a small family... More

Tutto Famigila is worth finding! It is not about atmosphere just great food and value. It is a true gem! Large meal sized salads and the pastas are generous. The lasagna has had rave reviews from our group but listen for specials as well. Family owned and operated, Tutto Famigila is casual and friendly and the food has never disappointed... More
