We visited this restaurant on a cold, snowy night. We had heard that the pizza was terrific and it was. The pizza was reminiscent of East Coast pizza with a thin and tasty crust. Topping were plentiful and went right up to the edge. The waitress recommended the evening specials, so we tried the pasta with shrimp and crab and were pleased.
The atmosphere is very friendly and the staff seems to know many of the customers. I'll definitely return.

Love the place, I live a couple of blocks away so i go there pretty often. Pizza is so buttery and tasty! The waitresses are also very friendly and Stefano, the owner, is too. I usually get the big pizza and think "I will have some left over for tomorrow" and of course there is no left over for the next day!

A nice small sit down place two blocks north of Wrigley Field on Sheffield street. The pizza is up to Chicago's standards but they have great pasta, seafood, and Italian entrees as well as daily "Blackboard Specials". They have a great bar and sidewalk tables and with an upscale feel at reasonable prices. It is very popular with locals and for me, a much better option before or after games than the loud, crowded, and over-priced bars around the stadium.

We came across this restaurant by walking down a different street back to the car from Wrigley. It was very inviting so we decided to try it. We had wine, bruschetta, mussels, one of the best tasting pork chops, veal filled ravioli and pizza. Everything was fantastic, and reasonably priced. The atmosphere was so cozy and the staff was friendly and top notch. In all the years we have visited Chicago it was awesome to find a new place-one that we enjoyed so much. We will definitely be back.

Sarah was an excellent server. Maitre d' made extra effort to seat a party of four. Brick over baked pizza was great. Pasta dinners were very good. We were taken by friends that are regular customers which shows locals love it.
