“A Taste of True Italy in Glen Ellyn”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013

This cozy gem of a restaurant is like like coming home to family where authentic Italian food awaits you. The entrance could be easily missed but don't - once inside you will be warmly greeted by this family owned and operated restaurant. The seating is limited but worth the wait. The menu offers a wide variety of Italian specialities. The calamari is awesome and can be prepared 3 ways - get the combined order for full flavor experience. The create your own pasta dish covers all that you would want - including gluten free pasta! I opted for the scallops, sauteed in herbs, over a bed of spinach served with perfectly oven crisp vesuvio potatoes. The wine menu offers a good selection and there is a full bar with great martini's - at least that is what I heard from the group that sat next to us. You can expect a wait on a Saturday night and since it is a small venue, it can be noisy with a full crowd. Finally, wear stretch denim-the portions are quite generous - you will most likely have enough left to bring home for tomorrow's dinner.

“Excellent Italian Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

We have eaten here many, many times. We've always been delighted with their specials as well as traditional menu items. The service is great. The owner is always accomodating and welcoming. His wife is an outstanding chef. You won't be disappointed if you eat here.

“Great cozy spot!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2012

When you enter this cozy restaurant you will likely be greeted like an old friend by the owner. Try a perfectly shaken martini, or a nice red wine from the reasonably priced wine list. Order an entree to split-- they are ample if you watch your weight! Fresh, delicious. Service can be great, or a bit slow, so just take a breath and have another sip of your wine. It's worth waiting for!

“Cozy Italian Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

Our son was coming on the train from Chicago and we wanted to have dinner. I went and got our table and my wife met our son at the train and just a very sort walk from the train station the were here. Service was great as well as the food. Not a very big place but it is worth the wait if you can't get there early.

“Upscale Family Italian”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2012

This is a tiny family owned and operated Italian restaurant. The service is super friendly and welcoming. We eat here every 6 weeks or so, probably more often in the winter. They have nightly specials and a full regular menu of your favorite italian dishes.
