This was one of the best Italian restaurants I've ever eaten at. Donna was an awesome server. Free deserts for Hampton Inn guests! Can't go wrong!

We were staying in Joliet to participate in a nearby Spartan Race (I AM SPARTAN!!). Decided to check this out doing a basic Google search near the hotel and reading a few reviews. After an unplanned tour of the "finer" parts of Joliet, we arrived! We did not have a reservation, and they were booked for the evening. D'oh! We... More

I'm not sure if there are words for our dinner, it was all so good! We started off with the crab cakes and my daughter was gitty with excitement when they came out. They were beautiful, crispy, yet creamy with chunks of crab, with a hint of spice. We could have just had these and been happy. For dinner we... More

The Chef is originally from Italy and the food shows his strong roots as well as great european & American influences. Staff was on point--the decor is delightful, reminiscent of the best North End and NYC ristorante(s). Everything on the menu has been excellent--fresh, house made and fairly priced for the generous portions. There is a small but good wine... More

Lovely atmosphere, and very good food. It's a bit overpriced, in my opinion, for the quality of the food. But I would still eat here on a special occasion. Plus, it's close to home for us.

You know how difficult it can be to find cannelloni - and good cannelloni is even harder to find. This restaurant has the BEST chicken and mushroom cannelloni I have ever eaten. But I was even happier when I ate their homemade spumoni - HEAVEN!

Barolo ristorante has been a favorite of ours for years. It's about a half hour from our house, so we don't get there often, but we always look forward to it when we do go, and we're never disappointed with our choice. I almost always get the Tortellacci Rosa (homemade cheese tortellacci with prosciutto, mushrooms, and sweet peas in a... More

Chef Guy makes interesting and innovative dishes using fresh and often local supplies. The daily specials are great with tasty side dishes. There is a Monday thru Friday from 4-6 dining option which includes entree, glass of wine and dessert for $18.95. If you are looking for standard spaghetti and meatball Italian restaurant fare, this is not the place to... More
