Small family owned gem

We've been going here for years. Although small & tucked away in a strip mall, the food and service makes this our go to weekly outing. The menu is large ( quite a feat for one excellent cook), but the daily specials are always excellent, fresh and creative. Some of the best fish & pork creations... read more

The company I visit put me up at the Holiday Inn just down the road, but although I've been visiting several times in last 12 months I hadn't tried this restaurant as the outside doesn't look inviting. Go inside however, and you are the atmosphere is very friendly, and clearly the haunt of regulars, known to the servers by name.... More

This little family Italian place is tucked-away in a strip mall and doesn't have a décor designed to "wow" you. Instead, their focus is on top-notch traditional Italian cuisine, everything done right with high-quality ingredients at very reasonable prices. It truly is family-run, which is nice, and the staff are very warm and welcoming, with an attentive and yet relaxed... More

Family owned featuring very good food at reasonable prices and very attentive servers. Draw back is the size, it's small so get there before 6p.

We found this resteraunt a couple years ago, we have tried almost everything, and enjoyed it all, the steak with gargonzola butter mushrooms and a side of pasta is the best I have had!

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 spot on! Terrific 13 table cute... 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
