Good Italian, great roof top deck

Just went here for cocktails and dinner with my wife. We sat inside at the bar first and had hand crafted cocktails (Moscow mule and cucumber basil vodka) both were awesome. After 2 rounds of drinks our table on the roof was ready. It was an awesome setting with a huge pergola and great... read more

This dinner-focused restaurant opens mid-afternoon (3-4 PM). The prosciutto with arugula, EVOO, balsamic, parmesan and goat cheese (about $15) and the chicken parmigiana or the veal parmigiana ($22-28) are always good choices. Also, the tiramisu or limoncello sorbet. The pergola adds a fun element and reminds me of roof-top dining in Italy. Good addition. Nice wine selection. While there are... More

The restaurant has terrific decor and was busy for a Saturday night. The wine pours were generous, but they were out of a couple beers on the menu. The service was only average. The waiter was not real attentive. When asked what his favorite pasta was, he indicated he is not a real pasta fan and prefers seafood. He then... More

Thought the 3rd time would be a charm. Wrong! In the past food has been very good but service spotty. No changes this time. Had an 8:00pm reservation for 4 on a beautiful summer night so requested outside when making it. Other couple arrived at 7:30, checked in and sat at bar. We were caught in traffic and arrived at...

I've been looking for a great Italian restaurant in the suburbs and found some that were o.k., but not really great. I found Il Sogno by chance as it was a great half way point to meet a friend. I had no expectations. The 2nd floor dining room was chic and contemporary. There was also rooftop dining, but it was... More

A few friends and I enjoyed dinner here. The food was good and plentiful and the atmosphere was fun. It was a very busy night so the service was a little slow but nothing terrible. Our only true complaint was that we made a reservation and had to wait around 15-20mins to be seated. It looked like people were taking... More

Great home made Italian food, just in the process of opening roof top dining. Chicken piccata and chicken Marsala are delicious, small bar area where you can wait

I wrote my first review of this restaurant last June nearly a year ago. I have revisited 3 or 4 times sense including a visit last week. We were a party of three with varied tastes. Everyone had an excellent meal presented by a friendly, helpful server. Several nice bottles of a reasonably priced Tuscan blend capped the wonderful meal.... More

Went there with a group of friends and family. There are plenty of better choices for Italian. The salad was very basic and bland, and the chicken was tough. To make things worse, a few of us had upset stomachs afterwards. Service was abrupt. Will not go back, ever.

I visit Chicago on a monthly basis and have found this western suburb restaurant to be my favorite Italian cuisine in the greater Chicagoland area. I was truly surprised to find a restaurant of this quality in the suburbs as opposed to downtown. With a focus on southern Italy fare, the menu leans a bit on seafood, which I enjoy.... More
