Outstanding meal. Plan for a long, relaxing dinner. Old school Italian done right. Their specialty salad perfect for starter with the fresh bread, large enough to share. Sea bass was extraordinary. Everything house made.

Streeterville is where visitors head for play at Navy
Pier, a pseudo amusement park and development of
restaurants, shops, rides, and other activities.
You’ll find lots of action and excitement on the
docks. Along the pier, you’ll see the statue of the
captain for whom Streeterville is named. While you
enjoy your fair share of sightseeing at the pier, you
can also visit other popular attractions there such as
