I returned here after 3 months. The spaghetti & Meatballs are still wonderful. The salad is very good and drinks are as ordered. My friend loved the salmon.

Friends introduced us to this Italian restaurant in Oak Park (Chicago western suburb). The food was superb. Great potions in formats I did not imagine - for example the wood-roasted portabella mushroom was served in a bowl smothered in cremini mushrooms, and large spinach leaves...and garlic/herbs. Gigantic portions of every dish we had (I suggest that appetizers and main courses be shared. Service was prompt and very attentive. I do not know whether there is music every night (or just Saturday) but we has a jazz duo (Andy and Morry) who were sensational. The perfect end to the evening was the baked apple pie a la mode.More

I've loved this restaurant for years for its warm atmosphere, fantastic food, its moderate prices and superb service. Little did I know how accomplished the chef and wait staff present themselves for groups! Ten of us arranged in advance for a prosecco toast for an...80th birthday gala. We arrived to glasses on the table and a chilled bottle. Individual orders? No problem --- and our waitress didn't miss a single order. Our own cake? No problem -- for a small fee, it was served with a scoop of gelato. Separate checks --- really --- for 10 people?? No problem --- and not a single error. How fortunate are we to have such a terrific restaurant in the neighborhood!More

I had the food delivered. It was my birthday and my son ordered it from California. Pear salad, Spaghetti Carbonara with Chicken, and Apple Crostata with gelato. Fabulous. Simply fabulous.

I have been here a few times in the last couple of years. My wife loves their grilled Caesar salad with chicken, but last week she had it with grilled salmon. It was excellent. I usually order the grilled salmon entree but this time I...ordered the goat cheese, pesto, tomato, and fennel sausage pizza. OMG it was awesome.More

We just held my daughter's bridal shower at Trattoria 225 and everyone had a lovely time. Everything was top-notch. The food was delicious (lemon chicken, roasted vegetable risotto, beet salad and arugula salad, and apple crostada with vanilla gelato). The servers were efficient and friendly...and the restaurant was very accommodating with set-up and decorations. The owner, Bill Quick, is easy to work with, gave us good advice and made us feel relaxed and welcome. We had over 50 guests and the restaurant actually holds a lot more, so it's a great place to hold a big event.More

Trattoria 225 in Oak Park was at one time a place to which I didn’t want to return, but that’s changed greatly. My last visit, with family, was one of the most pleasant dining experiences I’ve had. We were welcomed as we entered, and the...table service continued the welcoming experience. Our waitress was very friendly but professional, very helpful, and very accommodating without being fawning. The house Chardonnay was very pleasing. We took advantage of Tuesday’s 2 pizzas for $20 deal and thoroughly enjoyed them. We ordered the three little pigs and the goat, which complimented each other nicely. The dining rooms may be decorated in a quirky manner, but they’re comfortable and pleasing. I’m looking forward to my next visit already!More

I enjoyed my dinner at the Trattoria 225 so much with an old college friend. It's quiet, the food is excellent and the service is good.

We read some comments about this place in the Oak Park neighborhood. Italian restaurants are always welcome. We had a reservation - made a couple of hours before - at 7:45. We were surprised as we thought the place was going to be full but...it was not. Also, initially we thought it was going to be a small cozy salon, but the place is bigger than it originally looks. We liked the view of part of the open kitchen and the big oven with colorful tiles. Service was friendly and attentive. Kiddos had penne with marinara, my wife went for a pizza Margarita with anchovies and I asked the pastitsio. The kids ate all the pasta - good sign! The pizza was ok, not spectacular as the oven made us to anticipate, but was well done. The pastitsio was ok, a little bit dry. For ending we asked for a Tiramisu. It was not exactly that kind of dessert but still tasted good. In general was good the visit. You can do a relaxed dinner but just keep normal expectations.More

The spaghetti and meatballs here are 'to die for'. The menu is large and most dinners come with a salad , good dresings too. Pizza is also recommended. This is very family friendly with tablecloths and napkins!
