“Not like it used to be”
Reviewed August 21, 2013

We have been here many times and in the past it was always great food, great service, high energy. This time was a terrible experience. The service was comical because there were two waiters who did not know who was supposed to wait on us, so then neither did. The food was marginal at best. Very disappointing as this used to be a favoriate place for the whole family. We had 10 people in our party and had we received even decent service and had our food been warm and on time, not delivered 55 minutes after we ordered, the waiter, who ever it was spposed to be, would have gotten a really nice tip. Will I give it another try? Probably, but they really need to improve and get back to what it used to be.

“Good italian”
Reviewed August 7, 2013

Good enough Italian food. Sounded better on the menu than it was and was too expensive. We went with a group and the service was good. The split the check. Next time I'll get the pizza.

“Still Love this place”
Reviewed June 28, 2013

We have been going here for years, even though it has been a couple years since our last visit. It is still, big, loud, busy, and where people go for ALL types of occasions. Our server 'Rameka' was great, we were not hurried, it was exactly what we hoped it would be.

“Great location,atmosphere,staff”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

My husband and I went to this restaurant 20 years ago on our first date. We just celebrated our 18th wedding anniversary there Saturday night (and watched Hawks playoff game in bar). The restaurant is still very high quality with good food and excellent wait staff. The location is great in a nice neighborhood close to downtown. Prices are good. This is not a purely young crowd, but more larger groups of young people having appetizers, families with young children (changing tables in each restroom), and parents/grandparents. It's a place you can take your parents for their birthday or other special occasion. Its bright and lively, but not a rough crowd at all.

“Eh”
Reviewed June 21, 2013

Just so-so Italian food, not worth a trip in a city like Chicago with so many much better Italian restaurants. Try Carmine's or Rosebud on Rush instead.
