We have been going to “la Sorella” for wonderful Italian food for nearly twenty years; they have never disappointed us. This time, we were in Naperville on a quick trip with 2 other couples and we were looking for a place that was both informal and “somewhat gourmet”. They filled the bill. For appetizers, my wife and I shared fried... More

Visited the restaurant with friends. Since most of us come from a Mediterranean country, we expected Mediterranean cuisine from an Italian restaurant. As it proved, we all had high hopes, as the result didn't live up to our expectations. Despite the impressive names & description of the dishes, the actual food served was not good. Apart from one in our... More

This is a typical american-italian cuisine restaurant. Unfortunately, nothing in common with the real italian cooking. Mussels were dipped in a overwhelming tomato sauce (?), penne pasta with shrimps and zucchini, as well (totally forbidden in the analogous "italian" dish). The waiter even asked if I wanted to have meat balls or chicken-breast on my spaghetti with tomatoes and mozzarella... More

Food was good, but we were looking for some good pasta and there were not a lot of options on the menu. No spaghetti or fettucini or lasagna.

My husband and I had dinner there for his birthday! He isn't a big fan of pasta so he ordered chicken. I also ordered chicken. Both meals were in sauce that was to die for! This restaurant is in the heart of downtown Naperville and they have tables in the window perfect for people watching. Between our seats and the... More

In the area for business and had asked for a nice place to take my clients for dinner. A local suggested this restaurant. Glad we made reservations, because the restaurant was packed. We had seven in our party and were well taken care of. The meal was excellent! We started with appetizers of calamari and fabulous bruschetta. One person had... More

You can't go wrong with this place! This is my wife's favorite restaurant in Naperville. While the menu isn't extensive, it changes regularly and you can always find an awesome choice. The food is outstanding and the staff is very attentive and they know the menu inside and out. The building itself is very impressive, high ceilings, cool bar. The... More

We had our 40 year wedding anniversary on June 22, 2014 The service was good, and the food was very good. My husband and I sheared the mussels in tomato sauce, which was not so good; the sauce was very thick and tasted like store bought. I could not decided between the fish of the day and a pasta with...
