“UNEXPECTED EXCELLENCE”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2012

Was traveling between Wisconsin and Illinois and decided to stop here for dinner with wife on a Monday. Took a chance. Smart move.

The food was excellent (Veal Piccata and Spaghetti Bolognese). Excellent wine (William Hill Chardonnay which was priced right at $8 a big glass).

Desserts were a little pricey - all at $6 so we split a Tiramisu and it was good. One cannoli at $6 seems pricey (I know my Italian food and desserts) so go for the Tiramisu. Go for the Veal as well - I thought it was excellent and I have gone to many Italian restaurants.

“Good Italian food in Antioch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 18, 2012

If you are looking for a pleasant dining experience and want good Italian food in Northeastern Illinois then head over to Antioch. I recommend the chicken parmigiani. The wait staff are friendly and helpful.

“A great place for a delicious meal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 28, 2012

Although it doesn't have quite the atmosphere as sister restaurant Bottaio in Libertyville, the food is very good, it's warm and friendly and a great value. The pasta dishes are always enjoyable; the mussels in red sauce and the Penne Puttanesca are particularly well done Traditional dishes like eggplant and veal Parmigiana are lighter and more flavorful than other local Italian restaurants and the Specials are interesting and vary depending on what's available. Lunches are great, too and a bargain - soup, beverage and a sandwich or salad for under $9. The thin crust pizza is also tasty.
