Very lively spot and great food. Book early cause it's gets really crowded. I had the octopus to start and it was really really good. Had spaghetti as main dish which was also tasty. Service was good. Will def be back over and over.

One of the best romantic date night spots in Evanston! (Also great for a cozy evening with family &/or friends.) The ambience is one of my favorite aspects of this spot - it's small & intimate, the outdoor patio has beautiful flowers & overheard lights,...More

Very cute place with nice atmosphere. Quiet with soft Italian music playing. Very good service. Food excellent. Highly recommend either gnocchi dish. Pillowy gnocchi with wonderful sauces. One was stuffed with Asiago cheese. The linguine with mussels and clams was marvelous with a great savory...More

There’s nothing precocious or over the top here. Lasagna was perfectly blended. A side of meatballs was similarly simple and beautifully blended. The house red wine was nice. Dessert was coffee gelato. Loved it. Dress is casual and ambience is nicely done. Music is tastefully...More

Lovely small restaurant, much like Italy w/original paintings on the wall, glass sculpture in the windows. Good choices for children 10 and under. She loved spaghetti w/choice of marinara among 4 sauces plus a huge meatball = $7.50 and Green River soda. Warm, delicious sliced...More

My husband and I go here often and are never disappointed. It's a great neighborhood restaurant. Good service, good food. If you don't like garlic, skip it....as they are heavy handed!

Without a set plan, we decided to go to Evanston for dinner. After driving around we settled on trying a little Italian restaurant on a street with construction. The restaurant is very small with Italian music playing. You get the feeling that you're in a...More

I think we have had just about everything on the menu here over the many years we have been visiting. I no longer eat meat ball subs, but if it were to eat one, this would do it for me. The petite roasted amish chicken...More
