The restaurant is tucked away on a one way street just west of Oak Park Ave. It can look like a secret location but to people in the know around Oak Park it's easy to find because you have to eat there on a regular basis. All the dishes Are really good. You can tell they drive from old Italian... More

We loved this restaurant with the amazing food, friendly help and killer cocktails!!! Would highly recommend this place! We had the fixed prices menu with 3 courses and loved every bite! I forgot the leftovers and ran back in to get them! You won't be disappointed.

Tried this restaurant for first time tonight with my brother and his family who are regulars. Very impressed. Two very creative appetizers including bacon wrapped dates. My entree was a special - almond encrusted whitefish with a mixed vegetable side and grilled asparagus. Veggies had very appetizing texture and flavor and the fish was superb. Tried a couple of the... More

I make frequent trips to the Chicago area, and when I'm up that way during the Fall/Winter season, I make a point of eating here. I am not a fan of ravioli at all; I never eat it at any point throughout the year -- except when I visit this restaurant. They have a special on their menu which is... More

The title says it all. 10 of us ate here before a concert and could not have enjoyed our meal more. The appetizers included outstanding mushroom risotto, calamari, goat cheese, brussel sprouts and a dubious choice of a pear pizza that turned out excellent. The dinners included the beef pappardelle special which I enjoyed a a great deal, a trout... More

This is one of my favorite Italian places in Oak Park. Food is always excellent; especially tasty chicken and pasta dishes. Service is top rate. They have a very attractive and comfortable sidewalk seating area. Also love to sit by the windows inside.

We met our friends here for dinner on Friday, and had a wonderful time. The food and drinks were great, lots of specials on the menu, and many wines to choose from. I think I had a special, but I forget what I order from day to day, but whatever I had was great. Everyone else said the same. The... More

We had a birthday dinner in the lovely and quiet (small street) outdoor area enjoying abundant flower boxes and a view of the moon. Excellent service and a festive complimentary dessert to share. Always good food and service in a nice atmosphere.

Upscale Italian food. Very good food and outstanding service. We are local but you could make this a destination restaurant. If you are going at a busy time you should make reservations.
