  • amazing outdoor dining!
  • Conchiglie Alla Sarda was amazing
  • Old Town's Wells St. Corridor stations Topo Gigio, a comfortable setting for a quieter lunchbreak. A favorite: spaghetti loaded with mussels, scallops, clams in lively marinara sauce ($19).
  • Everything here is very good, but I would stick with the pasta. Beware though, this place is not big and it gets very crowded, which makes it hard to get a table most times.
  • Summer time in the garden is a must as well as trying the conchiglie alla sarda
  • Stopped in for a long lunch. The service was excellent, the food prepared perfectly, and the kitchen was accommodating. We couldn't ask for more. No wonder they were busy after 1:00 on a Friday.
  • Amazing food and attentive staff! Nice place to go in the summer with the outside bar and tables!
  • Conchiglie alla Sarda is better than Nonna's Don't tell her I said this.
  • The Conchiglie alla Sarda is the best pasta dish I have ever had in my entire life. It is incredible. Do not miss.
  • Get the signature pasta!
  • Get the Conchiglie alla Sarda, with heat. An excellent pasta dish!
  • The pasta with peas and sausage is over the top good. So is the chicken Parm with spinach
  • Great gluten free pasta and delicious salads for the vegan, plant-based or vegetarian. This place is a Chicago institution.
  • Tortellini alla Pana, the best
  • Solid Italian fare
  • Wine, Italian food, seafood - delicious!
  • Nice simple Italian before heading for a show at The Second City.
  • Great place. Cozy and extremely friendly staff. The food was phenomenal. We started with the panzanella salad, so good. I had the Pollo alla Valdostana it was UNREAL. Also the pistachio cheesecake YUM
  • Such good traditional food!
  • Solid Italian food. Great bread, don't fill up!
