Sat outside on a pleasant summer evening. The service was great. Both our dishes were from the specials menu and both were delicious. There seemed to be a lot of take out service so that was a good sign of a favored restaurant. We will return.

We've always found this to be a good family destination for a family night out. There are kid-friendly favorites on the menu, and the kitchen is happy to make something off the menu if they have the ingredients (fettucine alfredo obsession for a while). The menu changes regularly to feature fresh foods. Try the strawberry/spinach salad (yum), seafood dishes, and... More

Not good at all. Horrible polenta and risotto. Undercooked Filet Mignon and then overcooked it till DRY. Horrible, we sent it back. Ordered the sausage pizza-awful, since the manager put a rush on it. We sent both back and requested they be taken off the bill. Everyone was nice and apologetic. However, damage done. I don't blame the cooks, I... More

Trattoria is one of my favorite Italian places. Their food is fresh, home made and delicious. I have gone here with friends, a big party and on date night, all are great. The staff is very friendly and service was great as well. They also can make everything gluten free, and it is some of the best I have ever... More

Perhaps I am spoiled by Chicago's quality restaurants, but this place in nearby Oak Park just wasn't up to snuff. First what I liked: lovely decor, colors, etc. Bread was good. We had a lovely bottle of organic Italian wine. One thing I recommend is some shades for the front window. Whenever a car came up the street running perpendicular... More

First off, I have never been there when the owner wasn't present. His obvious dedication and concern show throughout the entire atmosphere; clean tables and tableware, friendly, courteous, and professional staff, varied menu. Even the decor is distinctive, with a rotating collection of largely decent quality original art adorning the walls, Beyond that, the ambience is welcoming and casual without... More

This is a Chicago/City-quality restaurant in the burbs. We are proud to have it in the neighborhood largely because we can get a great meal, and bring the kids along (because they can find just what they want as well). It's a nice atmosphere without being uptight or stuffy. Bring the kids, bring the family, have a great night out... More

I haven't been here in a while. Glad I came back. Pizza is great! Menu has a lot to offer for any palate including vegans!

We've eaten here ever since it opened about 5 years ago, and despite a change in ownership it continues to maintain high quality for food and service. Their thin-crust pizzas, baked in a wood oven, are excellent. Other entrees and salads are likewise very good, and sometimes rather imaginative. I do recommend asking for salad dressing on the side, as... More

Went here late last month on a Saturday night for dinner at 7:30 p.m. I was so looking forward to checking out this place but should have gone elsewhere. I do not remember the last time wait service was so disappointing and I am not quite certain as to the reason as the place was fairly empty. Not only was... More
