My wife, son and I had dinner here on Mother’s Day. We had a table on the roof top which is nicely done. The service was great and our meals were even better.

We love this place and how they make you feel like family. The outside deck was a little noisy for us as we were the only party of 2. We also missed having Tiffany wait on us, though Chris did a wonderful job. Looking forward to our next visit here. PS Congrats Rose & Tiffany!

Veal Agnolotti was excellent although sauce was very thick. Chicken Piccata was average - not exciting.

We were seeking a family friendly restaurant for Easter dinner. Not brunch, not buffet, just a nice meal. The limited menu had a variety of choices for first course, entree and side dish plus a several desserts. Everyone enjoyed their meal and the fixed price was reasonable. Service was very friendly and efficient, too, even though there were many large parties to attend. I would recommend this as a date night restaurant, too, with it’s relative quiet and warm industrial decor, it is a pleasant dining experience.

Wasn’t enough goats cheese on my beet salad. My veal was a terrible texture and my piccata was not a true piccata.

Food and service are 4-5 stars. And, given we were relatively early diners, most of the dinner was spent in pleasant conversation. However, as the restaurant filled, and it did fill, additional conversation became problematic. nevertheless, we will be coming back.

We had baked clams, misto griglia appetizers, risotto special with white fish, veal marsala main courses & agnolotti funghi pasta. All were outstanding. Three of the four in our party are Italian so we know a bit about good Italian food. We have dined here several times and have never been disappointed.

We felt it was a little pricey. I loved the lobster and shrimp risotto which was the risotto of the day for $33. My husband had a pasta special with boar meat for $19 and it was ok but kind of bland and not very filling. They provide bread olive oil and parmesan cheese with your meal.

I wish I could recommend this restaurant, as I was looking forward to going, driven by the glowing reviews. To start with the positive, we did have very good service here.The waitress we had was very attentive and caring. We got there, seated on the rooftop. It probably looks better in the summer, but even then, the setup was...ok. If it didn't look nice, I was really excited for the food. There are so many glowing reviews about their food. We got the mixto appetizer. It was overly sweet, but the seafood was nicely grilled. The main entrees of cavatelli and veal saltimboca left so much more on the table. They were not good. The veal dish was overly salty, and the cavatelli was bland, few cherry tomatoes in sight. We left very underwhelmed. I'm not sure what food all the glowing reviews were referring to, but I'd rather drive another 2 hours to find a place than spend the money here again. There are plenty of other wonderfully delicious Italian restaurants in the Chicago area. You might do your party a favor to avoid this one.

We had a lovely evening for Valentine’s Day dinner. We were grateful and fortunate to get the iconic window table! Our hostess for the evening was Rose, the daughter of the owner. The food was amazing and the combination of flavors were very delicious! My date and I happened to be going vegetarian at the time and even our meals were decadent and flavorful. The dessert we fancied this evening were the “timeless” Tiramisu and the Nutella gelato flute. We loved our experience and would definitely recommend this hidden gem to everyone!
