This was a great little place with wonderful, real Italian food and a real Italian family. No locked and windows covered up. Sign says out of business but something new is coming.

The waitress was very nice, that's the only good thing about it. I can tell it's family owned because they kept screaming things from the kitchen to the salon and back. Then there's the food. I mean, the pizza barely had cheese, my plate looked like leftovers, but at least it tasted ok. The worst thing is they have a... More

This is your normal pizza joint with some sandwich selections. Many of the people who live in the near by apartment complexes eat here whether it's dine in or take out. It's very convenient for them.

Just Like Italy has become our favorite Italian. My wife prefers the pasta dishes, and I like the thin crust pizza. There are no bad choices on this menu. Once again last night it was the perfect thing for us, great food at reasonable prices.

This place is a true neighborhood eatery. It's not much to look at. I think they should re-do the decorations a bit so it does not look grungy, but the food is good!!!! Vodka sauce is awesome! Pizza is good!!! The service, sometimes slow but always friendly!

In the area for business and stopped for a quick bite before heading to my hotel. I was expecting your basic bland italian food but was pleasently surprised at the well prepared meal. This is a family run business - sisters, children and mom all working - and the normal family squabbling going on - makes you feel like you're... More

Great restaurant if you are looking for authentic Italian food at a very reasonable price. It is run by a family from Southern Italy and you will get authentic Italian dishes. The menu is limited: this means great quality but I wish there were a few more choices. The ambiance is not a highlight. It is more like a fast... More

We visited this little family owned gem while in Gurnee for soccer. Our group of 20 pretty much took over the quaint little place and the staff was great! They even ran out to buy more beer for us when they ran out of the kind we were ordering! Now that's service! The food disnt disappoint either. Very good pizza... More

I thought by the name as it sounds authentic why not order a pizza and my favorite dessert tiramisu. I ordered take out. The restaurant is cute and small and family is definitely Italian so I thought it'd taste great. The pizza sauce did not taste homemade, very thick crust even though we ordered thin, not a ton of cheese... More
