My wife and I ate here one Sunday evening after the end of an afternoon Blackhawks game. When we arrived (without reservations) the host took our names down for 45 minutes later and suggested we have a drink at one of the places up the street. We returned at the scheduled time of 6:15, then were taken to the small bar at La Scarola and finally seated around 30 minutes later. We both ordered the minestrone soup; she ordered a seafood pasta in vodka tomato sauce dish (named for Sinatra) while I ordered a gnocchi-and-grilled-chicken plate. All of it was excellent! The entree portions were large. Dining room is crowded and tight and noisy and decorated with photos and other Italian memorabilia all over. All in all, a great place for a great Italian dinner. Next time we'll try to make reservations. Come hungry and be prepared to wait if necessary but you won't be disappointed.
