  • 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!
  • The selection of small plates, charcuterie, pizzas and classic pasta dishes is in good hands. A. List tip? The white truffle and mushroom pizza... and the 50-plus bottle wine list.
  • As seen on The Beast. The steak sandwich goes above standard with herb butter on roasted onion bread, plus a handful of pecorino and truffle oillaced fries.
  • Getting the roasted chicken with big, juicy roasted peaches, or the hyperseasoned pork steak with corn-studded polenta, or the semaforo pizza topped with peppers, rapini and olives, is a safe choice.
  • Can't decide between salad or pizza? Split the difference & order the one with a tangle of arugula and cherry tomatoes on top. Parmigiano, garlic and drizzled olive oil round out the dish.
  • Such a busy atmosphere. I love these paces that make you feel like people want to be there. Juliana is my fav! (every time I've had seafood there it's been super)
  • Try the brunch... And get the tegame or the breakfast pizza.
  • Love the bloody mary! So good. And comes with a shot of lager, the way a bloody is supposed to be served!
  • Amazing veal dinner is well worth the money ($30). Great waitstaff, very attentive. Glass was never empty. Have the tiramisu with an espresso for will thank me later.
  • I had a great time here. Highly recommend the brussels sprouts. Atmosphere is really cool. Great wine as well.
  • Casual, quick, great Italian food
  • Go here if you're looking for a savory brunch, the benedict is unstoppable. Can't wait to go back!
  • Lots of gluten free options including pasta and entrees.
  • The arancini benedict is so good ....
  • It is currently open we are eating there right now
  • Excellent risotto! Highly recommended.
  • The best Caprese salad anywhere.
  • Try the Roasted brussels sprouts - One of my fall favorites with cauliflower, bacon, caper, lemon and parmesan--perfect.
  • Try the Arancini Benedict - Really good. Filling but not heavy.
  • Try the brussel sprouts. Yum!
