Oldest Italian restaurant in Chicago. Liked the ambiance and restaurant theme/decor. The staff was friendly and very accommodating the entire dinner. Food was good but nothing that would knock your socks off. Between the 4 of us we ordered the following: Lasagna, chicken Alfredo, and chicken parmesean. Everything was good, but nothing spectacular. Alfredo was kinda bland. I make a much better Alfredo and the family would agree.
This is the kind of Italian restaurant your parents went to: waiters wearing a pressed white shirt under their vest with a red tie, a water person, a bread person, framed black and white photos of celebrities on the wall. It seems like the place hasn't changed in 30 years, but it doesn't have to... Every menu item is a classic. The dining room is a mix of dimly lit nooks that create an intimate dining experience for close friends and four-tops the run down the center of the space. Be aware: the dining room is up a long flight of stairs.
Wow this place was amazing! The decor is beautiful, the lasagna was absolutely incredible! We sat in a nice booth tucked which seems to have been cut out a closet of some sort. It was very private. It even had a switch inside to flip to let the server know we needed something. We'll worth the wait to get seated. Will definitely return on next trip to Chicago!
Ordered lasagna and tiramisu for dinner. The portion was pretty large, and the flavor was standard but not very impressive. Wish the bread was warm when they served it. The service was okay. The interior design was interesting to make you feel like going into a totally different space. Good for a casual dinner but might not be the top choice for Italian food in Chicago.
Good food and atmosphere. Tasty dishes and drinks. On the menu The seafood linguine includes scallops & shrimp, but none were included in the dish. Manager offered to have it remade with some and we said sure.
