Excellent atmosphere and cuisine. We had never heard of it before, but our friends asked us to meet there. Such a pleasant surprise! I had the black pasta with seafood which was outstanding. Overall, a good menu with interesting dishes. Nice wine selections. Excellent service. Quiet and unrushed. NOTE: The restaurant will be relocating. The entire building is being razed... More

Wonderful little place. We found the food delicious and the service to be fantastic at this place 10 minutes from the Red Line Sheridan stop. It is also on the 151 bus from downtown. Risotto on point. Carbonara on point. Veal parm on point. Very reasonable drinks done excellently. Incredibly fresh caesar salad with a fresh, piquante house made dressing.

Took us a year to discover this fantastic little family-owned Italian restaurant! Unfortunately, we also learned it will close in June (building was sold). The lamb shank with risotto was excellent! Fiancé really liked her spaghetti diavalo. Grilled calamari one of the best, as was the tiramisu. Excellent service and a hard working owner/chef! Encourage the owner to reopen elsewhere!

We enjoyed a special evening at this cozy place. We were a group of 10 and found the service was excellent and the food was delicious. They were very willing to make a unique dish for my 19 month old grand daughter. It was a fun evening.

I have nothing but great things to say about this restaurant. As an Italian from NY, I'm picky about my Italian food. Everything we had was delicious. The sauce accompanying the fried calamari was perfect and delicious. Top five I've ever had. Grilled calamari...yum! I had the veal lim one - so light and flavorful, I couldn't get enough. I...

Pick this little trattoria if you want a touch of real Italy in the middle of the Windy City. The food is excellent, price reasonable and the service great. My veal was delicious and the grilled scampi to die for.
