Doesn't matter what I order, it's the best I've ever had. It's gotten to the point where I can't see spending money to eat elsewhere because I can't find food that compares at these prices. Amazing service too!

Very good Italian food. I love the seafood options and pasta. If you don't see anything on the menu you like the chef will make to order. Great wine selection. Great service and friendly bartenders. One of my favs in Arlington Heights.
