Cozy atmosphere

The service is great. The food is either good or average; some dishes are much better than other ones, but I didn't try anything that was lousy. The pasta is homemade (yum) and some of the salad dressings are as well. The complimentary bread you get when you are seated is tasty and smells wonderful. The style is reminiscent of what I call ""old chicago"" with a lot of woodwork, fancy copper accents, a large decorative bar, and small, square tables. Overall, taking food, service, atmosphere, and price into consideration, I like the place and will go back but I wouldn't save it for a special occasion.

Bland average Italian, nice neighborhood ambience

With all of the Italian restaurants in Chicago, this place faces stiff competition--especially in the price range. The food was bland and average, but service was above average. The atmosphere was cozy, but the bar is imposing on the cramped restaurant. The place has the feel that you're going to get super Italian from this non-trendy, quasi hole-in-the-wall atmosphere. We ordered an apetizer (calamari), 2 entrees and tiramisu. The app was the best of the 4 selections. The entrees were not very flavorful. The dessert was a catering mass order variety. There are countless other Italian restaurants you can go to that beat this place. If the food was truly great, the atmosphere would be forgiveably quaint and rough around the edges to the point of charming. But, the food is mediocre to possibly below average; this makes the atmosphere feel like you're at some unkept restaurant in the suburbs. Too many choices in Chicago to go again. If you're going to spend near $100 for an app, 2 entrees, dessert and 2 glasses of chianti, you can certainly do better.

Great ambiance and solid pasta dishes.

The place was very quaint. We were treated very well, and it felt like there were a lot of regulars. The flavors felt like old style recipes -- maybe that is the Northern Italian. But my wife and I really enjoyed the food. I had the Farfalle Luce which was excellent. I could really taste that the sauce was made with wine. My wife had a pasta dish with their Vodka Sauce. I have had better vodka sauce, but my wife loved it. Overall, the food is solid and the ambiance is great. We will definitely be going back.

Good Stuff

Solid Italian dishes, specials were very good. Home made ravioli in vodka sauce special, chicken parm, and sausage & peppers appetizer were excellent. Overall a very good experience.

Wonderful Italian Food and Experience

This is one of my favs in Chicago. I love the building, service, and food. It's a quant restaurant with a small bar. The review above was mistaken. I love it that you can walk in and get sat right away. I recommend this restaurant. Enjoy!

It's a bar

It's a bar with a few tables to eat at. The baked clams were very good, the gnocchi was not, it was spongey with no flavor at all. The bracciole was tough and should have been cooked another couple of hours. Over all I wouldn't recommend eating there unless everything else in the west loop is booked.
