Went before visiting the bean on a cold rainy day so glad we did. The food was very good as well as my adult cocktail but the service and ambience was what made the experience memorable. You can get a great salad, soup, or more intricate meal to select from with great service.

Perfect spot for a pre-concert meal, within walking distance of Symphony Hall. They have small plates and interesting appetizers. The food was very good but it was a bit challenging for a vegetarian.

A wonderful meal. I had the chicken and my husband had pork chops. Both were cooked perfectly. We split the lemon dessert, which was also terrific. The servers were attentive and helpful. Highly recommended!

The food was no better than average compared to other excellent Italian restaurants in Chicago. I do not think the prices are justified. Came here because it is well ranked on TripAdvisor, but was somewhat disappointed.

I can’t say enough about this place! Our server was so knowledgeable, very friendly and helpful and a really nice guy. The other staff was equally attentive-every time our water glasses were halfway empty, they were at the table- but not intrusive at all. The food was delicious. We had the bruschetta, we each had a different pasta dish(4 of us) and they were all incredibly flavorful and fresh. We got the chocolate bombolinos and the assorted cannolis and cookies for dessert-OMG. Loved this place.
