Delicious Family Dining

This is a Chicago/City-quality restaurant in the burbs. We are proud to have it in the neighborhood largely because we can get a great meal, and bring the kids along (because they can find just what they want as well). It's a nice atmosphere without being uptight or stuffy. Bring the kids, bring... read more

First off, I have never been there when the owner wasn't present. His obvious dedication and concern show throughout the entire atmosphere; clean tables and tableware, friendly, courteous, and professional staff, varied menu. Even the decor is distinctive, with a rotating collection of largely decent quality original art adorning the walls, Beyond that, the ambience is welcoming and casual without... More

I haven't been here in a while. Glad I came back. Pizza is great! Menu has a lot to offer for any palate including vegans!

We've eaten here ever since it opened about 5 years ago, and despite a change in ownership it continues to maintain high quality for food and service. Their thin-crust pizzas, baked in a wood oven, are excellent. Other entrees and salads are likewise very good, and sometimes rather imaginative. I do recommend asking for salad dressing on the side, as... More

Went here late last month on a Saturday night for dinner at 7:30 p.m. I was so looking forward to checking out this place but should have gone elsewhere. I do not remember the last time wait service was so disappointing and I am not quite certain as to the reason as the place was fairly empty. Not only was... More

We stopped in for lunch while attending an Art Fair along Harrison Street in Oak Park. The atmosphere was cheery, and it wasn't as noisy as I remembered from dining here in the past. The menu was inventive, taking some simple items and making them a little different. I had a stuffed chicken breast, that was very delicious. Can't remember... More

A trip to visit family in Oak Park would not be complete without dinner at Trattoria 225, which is not on the restaurant strip in town. The food has always been outstanding, in particular the pizzas. The service is attentive, without being overbearing. I like the variety of micro-brewed beers that are on tap. On the most recent visit, Carissa... More

NIce decor calling itself a rustic Italian. But that's about where it stops for us. Cloth tablecloths but brown paper on top. What's that about. Nice waiter, but didn't replenish water. The salad was nondiscript but vinigrette too strong. I had the duck confit with vegetables, which were too crunchy chewy. The bread was of a hard dense type, not... More

This restaurant has been a great addition to the neighborhood, which was sorely lacking in dining options beyond mediocre Mexican. The dining rooms are very large, and the place was extremely busy for a while after it opened (the atmosphere here is at its best when the place is packed and noisy). However, it appears that business has really fallen... More

As visitors to Oak Park, IL, it is always a delight to find neighborhood restaurants that are a cut above the ordinary and that's what I would say about Trattoria 225 at 225 Harrison Street. The menu was diverse but not eccentric, the food was fresh and delishly prepared. The ambience was attractive and comfortable, the prices were reasonable. What... More
