We had so many choices, so little time, but this is a gem of a restaurant that takes pride in cooking Northern Style Italian comfort food with style and simple class. Located just south of River North and close to Theater District, down stairs in an old brick building comes fragrances of classic dishes and sounds of people eating and talking, laughing and enjoying. Menu is not overwhelmingly large which is nice. Started with a wild mushroom crostini with Carmelized onions and goat cheese. This dish was amazing and wish I had ordered two! Can't stop thinking about it. Next, a wedge salad ( just okay), next was a pasta with beef tenderloin tips and mushrooms, wow! Finally the Lobster Ravioli topped with lobster claw meat that was perfectly cooked. The lobster inside the ravioli was a bit overlooked but chunky and mild. Light cream sauce covered the dish. The large serving was more than enough for someone to pinch a few bites. Service staff was efficient and professional. Ambience was perfectly warm and upscale without being trendy and uncomfortable. Great family or date might restaurant. Large bar area and good table spacing. Can't wait to return on our next trip to Chicago.
