My friends and I enjoyed a great visit here after a day at the art museum. I am gluten free, so I generally have a difficult time at Italian restaurants. My options were basically limited to the grill menu, so I opted for the salmon. It really was cooked perfectly! It was dressed with a delicious lemon sauce, and the... More

Very traditional Italian food and atmosphere. We really liked our dinner, everything was perfectly executed. There is plenty of seating on the patio for those beautiful summer nights.

We had a wonderful lunch at the Trattoria Roman Gardens. The bread was fresh and warm. We ordered a bottle of Cabernet for a reasonable $25. I had the eggplant parm. It was delicious! I always order eggplant parm at an Italian restaurant. It's my favorite dish and I was not disappointed. Sauce was the sweet tomato variety and I... More

This will soon become one of your favorite places to eat in Little Italy! Don't miss the chicken parmigiana and ESPECIALLY the gnocchi! Seriously, the gnocchi is the best you'll ever have, and there's enough to last you for two meals. This restaurant has all kinds of old-world Italian appeal, and the servers are super-friendly. When we were there last,... More

We have eaten here so many times I can't count the food is so fantastic, if you want a real treat try the Shrimp and Gnocchi it has to be my favorite if you like gnocchi you are sure to love this like I do, gnocchi in a spicy vodka cream sauce with scallions, mushrooms and shrimp.

Very nice neighborhood Italian restaurant in the heart of Little Italy. Stopped in for a late lunch (or early dinner really) after a visit to Lakeview cemetery. They have both indoor and outdoor seating (on a patio). Very friendly and attentive staff. The eggplant parmigiano was billed as their signature dish and lived up to the expectations. Generous portions and... More

We love the eggplant there. We've been too busy to visit the last couple years. We had a chance to head there while in downtown to see the phantom of the opera at play house square. The eggplant is thinly sliced Ned stacked high. They have about ten or so thin layers. It doesn't appear to be fried or breaded.... More
