Good Italian Rest.

An Italian chain of restaurants in the Chicago Area, although each is a little different the food is very good. Some locations are better suited for family and group, this one is good for families.

We eat here about once a month. They have a great Francesca's salad and their salmon dish is always outstanding. They change it up every month but not too much, always using fresh ingredients and veggies to make it interesting. Nice ambiance as well - fairly quiet.

What does it take to get good service around here? Try as we might, failure on 2 of 3 occasions. Maybe it was due to the timeframe and day. Wednesday must be a bad one especially at 3 pm. Always sit at bar. Different bartender every time. Not consistent with drinks or service. Both times we waited entirely too long... More

I live in the area so usually only go to my standard restaurants when my wife and I go out to eat. This was a business lunch so someone else picked out the location. I have to say this was good food and reasonably priced. I will add this to one of my options moving forward.

I live in the area so when I go out to eat I usually go to my neighborhood standards. This was a business lunch picked by someone else. Nice menu, good service, and good soup. All in all, I'd have to say I will visit here again for dinner with my wife.

We have been to this restaurant more than a few times both as a family and for special occasions. My wife and daughter really like this place, so we go on a regular basis. And the service and food has always been good. But as the one who is always footing the bill, I find it a bit too expensive... More

2/22/15 YOU MISSED THE MARK. We are regular customers at this time at establishment. I guess that doesn't mean much when you have 2-20 plus parties wanting your service and another 10 plus 2 parties wanting for your food or service. The food is great here. My husband & I went there for a special treat. Well, Michelle took our... More

Outstanding Food. Service was great. I ordered the special which was Sea Bass. The fish was perfectly cooked, very reasonable @ $27.00. The dinner, atmostphere, wine and sharing time with my family made this one a 5 star!!! Awesome!

They have a great location, it made our date night great being so close to the movie theater. The food here was decent, we had the bruschetta which seemed to be a little off, The sauce didn't taste good. The entrees were okay as well, we had chicken pasta and had them make it a little spicy which they were... More

We were here for a team dinner, a group of around 20 people. Considering the size of the group it was very impressive how everything came pretty much in the same time, we did not have to wait for each other or end up with cold food. Service was excellent and the food was very good. One of us wanted... More
