We ate here on a whim, and we had a nice meal. The quality of ingredients are amazing. Decor is nice rustic, good location. I enjoyed the ricotta and bread appetizer. Thin crust pizza ok. My favorite was the Farro salad, to die for if you like roasted nuts and butternut squash! I could eat that for days. Pastas did... More

We have been to this spot twice and both times have endured the same result. I always like the look of the place which has a rustic vibe, but that is my only major compliment. The restaurant doesn't seem to accommodate a large group so the quality of service suffers. The food was sub-par and one member of our group... More

Went here recently with 18 people at pretty late notice, just a few hours. Could not have been happier with the food and the service provided by Ron. Rom made the food selections for us and got it just right between appetizers and mains and meat and vegetarian choices. Amazing flavors and experiences. Great value also as it was a... More

We dined here with friends and shared a number of plates and cocktails. Everything was just excellent from the pear/blue cheese salad to grilled octopus to a Farro dish with butternut squash and goat cheese to the meatballs, pizza and one dessert to share...it was all just wonderful. The waitress knew her menu and made great recommendations on apps or... More

It's hard to please an Italian with food that we make all the time. This place was amazing, the sample sizes are just perfect when you're not really sure what you have a taste for. I love-love-love their polenta with meat sauce, it's my favorite dish. There isn't anything that I have tried that I wouldn't try again. I have... More

If you are in Chicago then this is an absolute must. 5 minutes walk from Trump Tower (Magnificent Mile). Great ambience and very good service. The Margherita Pizza and the pasta is simply fantastic.

Was really looking forward to trying particularly the pastas here after looking at the menu and finding 6 of 7 were very interesting. Tried 3 and we found only 1 to be outstanding and the other 2 just average. Deserts were also variable. Wine list was decent. Hoping that it was just poor selection on our part and that the... More

We had breakfast three mornings and enjoyed everyone. Their bacon is 3/8 in thick. Friendly, efficient staff. Enough variety for everyone

We went there for Sunday brunch and we loved everything about the restaurant. The is quaint and is fashioned to look like an Italian winery. The service is amazing. The entrees seem to be comprised of strange combinations but they are delicious together. They have a make your own Bloody Mary bar which has an unbelievable array of ingredients! I... More

We had sampled the pizza at the Festa Italiana, and since we enjoyed it, we decided to go for dinner. Our server, Christine. explained that it was a shared plate menu, and that the items would arrive at the table as they were ready. The wine list is extensive, and offers 5 oz and 8 oz glasses in addition to... More
