Tried to go to this restaurant a year ago and they had electrical problems and were closed. A year later we tried again and I am so glad we did! This place was amazing! The wine selections and prices were terrific (half price bottles on Saturday night). The bread and oil to start the meal was great, warm bread and right spice in the oil. The entrees were hot, well portioned and terrific. The beef medallions, the chicken, and lobster three cheese tortellini were all amazing. Deserts were equally fantastic. Staff were friendly professional and quite personable. Interesting corner location. Nothing at all bad to say about this place and have many fond memories of our dinner! And the prices were extremely affordable.

We recently moved out of Chucktown after 10+ years and this is one of our favorite spots for dinner.

Great atmosphere either location and the soup/sandwich combo is an easy go to. Love the tomato soup with a Cobb salad.

Maybe they'll open one in Zurich!

Great place for a quiet meal. Could have easily ordered one of 10 dinners on the menu. The butternut squash pasta with a sauce with cranberries was exceptional. Meals look like they are lovingly prepared and artfully arranged. Delicious bread and salad. Modest but nice selection of wine/beer. Very efficient and friendly wait staff. A bit of a walk from the John/King Street area where we were staying but definitely worth it!

This wonderful restaurant was able to accommodate a large party of nine and serve us in a short time. We were impressed by the gluten free and vegetarian options on the menu that was clearly denoted. ( since we had several in those categories) The beef tenderloin was scrumptious .

This has been one of my favorite experiences at a restaurant. It's vegetarian-friendly, the food was awesome and the environment was trendy and mod but not pretentious. The dining room is very spacious but it's the kind of atmosphere where [considerate] people have great, low-key conversations. Would love to find more places like this everywhere. I can't wait to visit again!
