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.

All of the food was really good and the service was good, even though it was very crowded. It was restaurant week and there was a special three course menu. The calamari was very good and the chocolate dessert was excellent. Very nice ambiance and very cozy, comfortable feel about this restaurant.

The food hear is very good. I had a steak and a seafood appetizers. Although the restaurant bills itself as Italian the sauces were all French and very good Same thing for the salad It was a cold day so this was a fun place to get out of the weather. Great service and a lot of fun.

Amazing 100% veal meatballs are a must try for your appetizer. ALL OF their pizzas are also amazing. The calamari is nothing AMAzing but pretty good I Have to say. The dessert called the bread pudding is also very delicious. It is served HOT with delicious creamy vanilla flavored gelato on top with caramel. You need to get on board... More

We had about 10 people over at my brother's house. We ordered different pasta dishes and a couple pizzas and brought them home to share. We ate until we were in a food comma while watching A Christmas Story. Absolutely delicious. We loved the beet salad too.
