“No place for lovers of Italian food”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2011

Food is very sub par. Sauces are worse than mediocre. Spend some cab fare and read reviews to find a good Italian restaurant. Chicago has quite a few; this isn't one of them.

“Fantastic Italian at reasonable prices”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2011

The bellman at my hotel recommended this restaurant and gave me a coupon for a free appetizer. What a great recommendation! The bruschetta was the best I've had, and I'm not a fan of bruschetta. The soup was spectacular, and the entree was good as well. Extensive menu with some creative twists. Attentive service. A really fantastic place.

“Great for all”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2010

Wanted a place that would be good for adults and kids. Service was great. Treated like one of the family. Great selection of food and even made stuff off the menu for the kids. Even my kids thought food was fantastic.
