Not the biggest fan of South Side establishments in general, but decided to try Carmella's based upon favorable TA reviews. A packed restaurant on a Saturday night was a good sign. Yes, the restaurant is a bit, uh, eclectic? Not sure that I really get...More

Stopped in on whim for late lunch. Bison burger done just right and was juicy. Couldn’t ask for better. Wife and son opted for egg dishes and were pleased as well with hanger steak and eggs and breakfast sandwich (at 2 o’clock). Decor is warm...More

My wife and I had a great dinner here, joined by another couple. This appears to be a basic pub at first, but could well be called a "gastro-pub" in England, meaning gastronomic. Plates and Pints only partially describes it. You can get small plates...More

Loved this little restaurant/bar! First of all, this is a perfect date night spot for dinner and drinks! It's really cute inside and has amazing drinks and food! We went on a Saturday night around 7 without a reservation but were able to be seated...More
