Description: From gelato, to panini caprese, to sweet potato fries, to wine and more, the owners turned this old Hardees into a trendy, fun, but casual restaurant. Good quality food makes for an enjoyable meal in a nice atmosphere. Their phone number is 815-419-3011. Located about 1.5 miles east of Interstate 55 at Pontiac, exit 197. Worth the stop!

“Nice place and great value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2013

Stopped by the restaurant after a few basketball games at the high school. For those of you from the Southwestern suburbs it is similar to the Patio Restaurant. The food was very good, the three of us had a Cesar salad, Tilapia, and an Italian Beef sandwich....all very good. For those who want quick service and nice selection at a great price....please try it out

“Relaxing atmosphere, great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 7, 2013

A great Italian food place with gelato and wine available. Nicely remodeled fast food restaurant that now has an inviting and relaxing atmosphere in which to dine. Place your order - I like the Panini Caprese with sweet potato fries - then sit back and enjoy the service. Service is quick and the menu is creative.

“Husband loves it”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 5, 2013

Italian Beef is the best. We discovered this place last time we were here. We made sure that we went back this time. Also it is a informal place for all to go to. Mainly pastas and sandwiches and salads etc.

“Love the food and concept”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 5, 2013

Love the idea that I order my food and then sit down and then wait for the food to be delivered.

Food was good and staff was nice. Dined with customers and they enjoyed it as well.

“I want to be waited on!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2013

The food is good but you have to stand at a counter to order your food and then they bring it to you. If I pay for a nicer meal (more expensive), I want to be waited on and not feel like I am at McDonalds.
