This is pasta....

Clara's never disappoints. The food is always top notch. The pasta us very light and doesn't weigh heavy on you... great so you can eat more!

Tried this place on a suggestion from a friend while visiting Chicago. Ordered the Chicken Parm with a side of pasta. It was the worst Chicken Parm I have ever had, and the pasta came swimming in water! They took the pasta back after I complained and brought me more, and it was in even more water! My friend ordered... More

This restaurant has great Italian food. We haven't had a bad meal here and it is truly the traditional Italian food that we have grown up with in Chicago. The family atmosphere and the owners are genuine and we are so glad to have this premium establishment in our town.

Since they moved to this new location I think the food has gotten even better! It was already very good. This place is even busier with more people and food quality is the best. You can't go wrong on any day for a outing at Clara's!

Excellent food, great service. Will be back! Pasta with pesto, kids pasta with meat and my husband had a shrimp dish. All food, drinks and dessert was delicious!

Clara's has always done phenomenal business which is why they recently moved to a new larger location to accommodate all their customers. While that certainly puts a star on their report, I feel like their food quality has gone down since. New cooks? I had my daughter's baby shower there on a Saturday evening and appetizers, especially the bruschetta were... More

The food is good if nothing special. The service the same. The portions are large, but the prices are a little high for what you get.

I recently went to Clara's and am sad to say I was disappointed. . My little neck clams were extremely salty and tough. It's the first time I ever had an issue with clams. I LOVE CLAMS but not Clara's version. I had to discard them onto my plate after trying each one. Not good table manners but had no... More

I hate to say it but I was very disappointed with our dinner here the other night. First, I don't like the fact they don't accept reservations unless you have a party of 5. Usually, if this is the case and you tell the restaurant you have young kids they'll make an exception. They did not. We were a family... More

Anthony- We are sorry to hear about your less than great experience.

I know it can it frustrating to wait for a table with kids so I promise we will address soon. As for the food,... More
