Foursquare Tips

  • Don't fill up on bread. The portions are big (though the food is average).
  • They have a gluten free menu that includes gluten free pasta!
  • Impeccable food, service, and wine..
  • Lovely service. Delicious food!
  • Thought youd want to know: Scott Harris has been nominated for Restaurateur of the Year in Time Out Chicagos 2011 Eat Out Awards. Vote now!
  • They have happy hour now! I got a glass of wine and carpaccio, which was quite good.
  • Go here for your next nostalgia fix of Italian American home cooking, especially if you have gluten issues.
  • Risotto, Salmon with Avocado and Creme Brle ... Delish
  • Lunch Time
  • Service is usually spotty.
  • Their Conchiglie alla Papalina is amazing!
  • Four cheese ravioli! You can taste a great blue cheese!
  • The portions are generous, the room is comfortable and the food is reliable.
  • Good couvert w parmesan cheese, olive oil and bread (seems to be homemade. So good!). Plates are not too big for saladas and meal, but the pasta meals are huge!
  • Tiramissu! One of the bests in Chicago =)
  • Delicious and fresh made Italian fare
  • Carpaccio is the best!
  • I had the rigatoni and I thought it was just ok. Nothing on the menu really just jumped out to me.
  • For as silly as it may sound, I think they have one of the best Caesar salads in town.
  • Stick to the tried-and-true, like mussels in spicy tomato sauce or linguine with sauted shrimp and asparagus in a sauce of white wine, tomato, and basil.
