“Not bad...”
Reviewed September 20, 2012

Had a final bite to eat before leaving for airport. Ate off the lunch set menu. It was a bit splash dash and the waiter seemed a bit stressed. He threw the cutlery down on the table and wasn't too gracious placing the food down. But I think he was just a bit of an awkward character. The sweet & sour dish I had was very sweet. It was fine for the price. Not special, but no significant complaints.

“Breakfast”
Reviewed September 17, 2012

Breakfast was really good and food was fresh! Service good and variety plentiful...little pricey but you are in downtown Chicago.

“Excellent Italian food, nice environment, just off Michigan Ave, not overcrowded”
Reviewed July 28, 2012

I ate here on a Saturday night. The restaurants on Michigan Avenue all had 90 minute wait times so we decided to walk and see what we could find. This restaurant is located about one block West of the John Hancock building.

We were so pleased. The food was excellent. Each of us got pasta entres that were $18 each. The decor and environment was nice. Would definitely go again.

“Great locations just across from Grant Park”
Reviewed June 23, 2012

The food was very good and the prices resonable. The sweet potato fries were an option instead of regular fries. The surprise was they were not an up charge.

“Personal Fav (NOT fusion!)”
Reviewed May 28, 2012

First of all, despite what at least one reviewer implied it is NOT fusion! It is an Italian restaurant with a couple Chinese appetizers on the menu. Period. The dishes themselves do not mingle cuisines. Your meal can, if you choose. (We always do.)

The signature pizza is delish and a fantastic value.Put some chili oil on it. It's even better warmed up.

I wish they served mustard sauce for the spring rolls. The pot stickers are also great, Caesar salad pretty good.We never make it to dessert. Skip the bread.

The atmosphere is cozy but not always quiet, sadly, due to the proximity to the bar.
