Our last night in the Chicago area and we wanted to try something different, we got in the car and I got out my phone, this popped up and since we prefer small local places we thought we would give it a try. Online it suggests reservations so we called ahead to see if we would be ok, they assured... read more

This restaurant is in a weird retail space so don’t get turned off by that. Once inside it is very cozy well decorated. If you are a solo traveler they do have a nice size bar where they serve the full menu and also patio dining. Once you are seated they bring out warm crusty bread with warm fragrant olive... More

Love that this is located about 1/2 a mile from home in Tinley Park. Tucked away in a clean strip mall, we decided to try because it was so close to home and were pleasantly surprised at the food and great service. We'll be back!

First time I ate here. If you want home-cooked authentic Southern Italian cuisine, this is the place to go! My grandparents lived to cook and the dishes here are exactly the same as theirs. The stuffed artichokes are the best I've ever eaten! Share one of these as an appetizer. If you've never had one, just ask the staff to... More

We went to this little gem of a place that served fabulous Italian food. It is tucked away on 159th Street and had no idea that this place was there. The favor of their food was robust and spiced perfectly. Great service and there are several wonderful items to choose from. The "Garbage Salad" (sans the Blu cheese because I... More

Small can be crowded at times and can also be loud as well. Food is good not enough to blow you away but good. If you are looking for a simple meal that will work for a busy week here it is. Drinks are priced somewhat high for the size they offer. Would go back.

Definitely need a reservation. We were walk in but were lucky enough to get a high top at the bar. Started with an appetizer of banana peppers stuffed with loose Italian sausage, topped with melted cheese and marinara sauce. A meal in itself. Had the Chicken Piccata and the meal arrived steaming. My husband had the pasta with meatball and... More

We come here often I think it's about the best Italian in the area it's wise to get a reservation but we have come in later in the evening and not waited long. I always have the specials and have NEVER been disappointed. I think for the amount of food you get the prices are extremely reasonable. Tonight's special was... More

The food was very expensive for what we received. It also was tasteless. We had hear good things but were very disappointed. The wait staff seemed to pay attention to people who were regulars to the detriment of new customers. We were ignored for long periods of time. I don't think we will return..
