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

First, the food was fantastic! We had a table of 5 and the service was excellent! My daughter and I split the Chopped Italian Salad - very generous and easy to split. My daughter made her own pizza. I got the Linguine ai Frutti Di Mare - oh so very good! Loaded with seafood, great marinara sauce. We were really... More

Wonderful family friendly jewel in the oak park arts district. The staff make you feel like you are a regular. Perfect place to go after a game, or out with the gang. Ingredients are often picked up at the local farmers market and te menu changes often. Pizzas are great.they make me feel like I am eating healthy. Lots of... More

This place is a total gem to the neighborhood. We got the tip to try it out because of their ability to accommodate for gluten intolerance, from a local gluten free blogger! She gave the restaurant 2 thumbs up. So we checked it out, I loved that the manager came over and chatted with us about what foods we liked,... More

I have lived down the street since this little restaurant opened. It has always had a comfortable, welcoming atmosphere. I love the local art hung on exposed brick while smelling the pizza cooking in the exposed wood-fire stove. Often we'll call ahead to order out (staples: Organic Arugula Salad-no longer available, mozzarella wrapped in prosciutto, any of the risotto, and... More
