We were seated immediately at 11:30 in the covered patio area by a friendly hostess. The service was very good, as was the deep dish pizza. The only negative was that there was a food tour group that arrived at the restaurant and they were also seated in the same patio area. Sitting next to a group would be alright; however, the tour guide for that group talked very loudly while the group ate. She was way too loud and it was very distracting. It took away from the nice meal that our family was trying to enjoy. Tour groups with a guide who plans to talk throughout the meal should be seated in a separate area! Despite this one negative, it is a restaurant definitely worth visiting!
