“Great choice near the zoo”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013

We were looking for a lunch spot we could walk to from the Lincoln Park Zoo. So glad we found this friendly, neighborhood bar/restaurant. Huge menu full of mostly Italian specialties and pizza. We really enjoyed our thin crust pizza and a nice side salad. Good server. Very laid back atmosphere. 5 min walk from the zoo makes this a great spot for families to take a meal break from their zoo visit. Something here to satisfy every kind of eater...

“Wow. Tasty an filling”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013 via mobile

Was in Chicago for a one day trip and asked the hotel staff to recommend a place that delivered and was good. They suggested I try Ranallis and I'm glad they did. The cxn sandwich was large, moist, filling and a great value. It was so big it took 2 days to eat it. On my subsequent Visits this will be one of my must stop places

5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012

There was a large menu and it was family friendly. Outdoor seating available during warmer time of year. We had the Redline sandwich and it was delicious!

“Pay attention to the rats ...”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2011

The building is full of rats. The restaurant owners don't care as long as they mae profit so the rats roam free at night in their kitchen and the rest of the building ... you might be sharing your food with them (although the rats tasted it first) ...
