Good Italian and excellent bar

i first went here for some friends wedding lunch. They did a great job catering a special meal. Since then I have eaten there several times and have not been disappointed. The drinks menu is excellent as well.

Each of us in our party of four loved their meals! Warm bread and with garlic butter was brought to us very quickly. I thought that my pork in Marsala wine was the best pork dish I have ever had. The server was very attentive, the restaurant is attractive. Yes towards the end of the meal it started getting a... More

Both the fried and grilled calamari appetizers were good. My cousin lives near this restaurant and it is one of her favorites. She had the pistachio chicken and loved it. I had halibut and thought it was quite good. My husband wasn't so crazy about his Lake Superior white fish, but it was still decent. The biggest problem was that... More

I'm a litte bit torn on this review rating. Had I simply paid the check and not stuck around for dessert, it would have been a strong 4 star review. Nice menu, tasty food, simple wine list, fair prices, al fresco dining area. Our party of four including two children were seated promptly on a Tuesday evening. Restaurant was relatively... More

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
