Snobby greeting then forgot we were waiting. 30 minutes later we sit in a room of open tables Rachel the Host must have had a bad night. Food was good other than the wait

Atmosphere is dated and cheesy, but the food is fantastic. Wonderful breadsticks - hubby loved the chicken alfredo and the lasagna was wonderful (all beef - which is what I like). Service was good and professional.

The atmosphere is good and the service is great. However the food was horrendous; both my wife and I could not finish our pasta entrees. The sauce is what you would expect from a jar from the supermarket. The pasta was overcooked mush. The shrimp and scallops were inedible. The worst part is that the prices are outrageous when considering... More

The atmosphere is great. Sat at a table in the bar and had wonderful service. Couldn't decide on what to order and the server was very patient with us. The bread, oil and cheese on the table is a wonderful touch.

Mid week dinner with wine pairing was mostly locals. Each of four courses were server with wine chosen by Caleb and Tom. Music was provided by Brian Bebee and friends. Event is run every so often to get feedback on new menu items.

Maybe we are spoiled with good Italian in Chicago . This place is overpriced and mediocre at best. Don't bother with the tasteless bruschetta . Service was poor. This is the off season, can only imagine the service during the busy season.

Excellent food Excellent, VERY attentive staff Really nice, quieter restaurant yet still doable with family. Prices are quite high- like "whoa, wow" high, BUT, it IS a nice dinner with great ambiance, service & food.

We had a food voucher from our hotel for $50 which helped a lot.  However, the food was mediocre at best and most Italian food chains have better food.  Starting with the olive oil on the table, it was a very cheap brand that I would use to grease a pan with, not to serve at an upscale Italian restaurant....
