La Notte Cafe
Berwyn GemThis was our third trip to La Notte. What a terrific place! Family owned and operated, food is cooked when you order it and exactly to your specifications (so don't be in a hurry).They always have some great specials and an extensive regular menu with pastas, seafood and entrees such as pork chop vessuvio. The mussels on the appetizer menu are outstanding! I had the special diavola black risotto with shrimp and scallops; it was excellent. Our teens really enjoyed their alfredo and spaghetti. Husband had the chops as usual and loved them. Creme brule for dessert was also hood. We'll be back!6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMLa NotteThe owner serves you and will pretty much cook you anything you want with great skill and care. Good porch for train buffs6/10/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Most Amazing Italian Food Ever!I can't say enough about this place. Everything is outstanding. We have NEVER had a bad meal. We no longer go to other Italian restaurants since finding this wonderful gem. No one can hold a candle to LaNotte! The food is the freshest high quality made to order. I am a martini snob & I just love the LaNotte Special Martini…OMG. The meatballs are better than if my Italian Grandma made them, Sorry Gram. The staff is friendly and attentive. They make everyone feels welcome, happy & ensure you leave with a satisfied tummy. The desserts are just as amazing as the food. We loved the Chocolate Truffle, Tortoni, & the Homemade Chocolate mousse just melted in our mouths. Thank you LaNotte for such a Great Dinner…you made our evening pleasurable.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat RestaurantLaNotte is my favorite restaurant and I try to get there once a week. The restaurant serves great tasting Italian food that is always fresh and made to order. I usually order one of the specials and I am never disappointed. The service is friendly and attentive. I highly recommend this restaurant.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent Italian restaurantA wonderful place to have that special occasion, small family gathering or with friends. A good wine list with helpful recommendations from your server.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMA real gemThe food was wonderful and they are willing to modify anything to meet your own taste. Service ane food quality for top notch. The family (owners) were on hand to make you feel very welcome and appreciated. We came in from Munster Indiana and it was well worth the trip!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMLa Notte for Any OccasionWe've returned to La Notte quite often since a relative recommended it several months ago, and our group keeps getting bigger each time. It's one of our favorite restaurants because we always leave extremely satisfied with the food and service.
We keep ordering our favorites - grilled calamari, caprese salad, fettucine alfredo, fruti di mari (mussels, clams, calamari, and shrimp) with linguine in red sauce, fresh fish with grilled vegetables and linguine. Everything is fresh and made to order - e.g., the owner recommended farfalle (bow tie) pasta for the kids instead of fettucine because it would be easier for them to eat (spot on!) - and we've made other substitutions for our preferences.
Wish we could go every week!4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMLittle out of the way, but worth itService,service, service!Great Food, great food,great food!3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMA Birthday Treat.We have a birthday tradition where the family member whose birthday it is gets to pick the cuisine and then we go to restaurant featuring that cuisine that we have never been to. I picked Italian and, to our good fortune,we ended up at La Notte Cafe in Berwyn. What an enjoyable experience it was from the warm friendly atmosphere to the delicious appetizers and entrees. We had grilled calamari for an appetizer. For dinner,I had the Chilean Sea Bass, one son had the Veal Piccata, the other had a spaghetti dish, while my wife had the Risotto Funghi. They barely had to wash our plates when we finished if you know what I mean. The owner-host, Giovanni, was very nice and we thoroughly enjoyed our meal. We will definitely return!3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMMangiaGiovanni was amazing. Took college roommate from out of town and my daughter, who has celiac's. The food was absolutely delicious, the owner/chef made us feel like family. Best veal parmagiana and halibut we have had in years, and yummy home-made sausage. We will definitely be back3/19/2013 12:00:00 AMLa Notte is a downtown ChicagoLa Notte is a downtown Chicago caliber restaurant quietly tucked away along the Metra track in Berwyn. A must do for anyone seeking authentic Italian food in a great setting.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMWe found La Notte on OpenWe found La Notte on Open Table while stuck in traffic on the way to pick up family at Midway. We knew we wanted to find a place for dinner out near Midway before fighting the traffic back into the city. What a fantastic surprise! The service was attentive, friendly and informative. The owner also spent some time talking to us as well. The food was really amazing, authentic Italian. They take a very flexible approach to the menu letting you customize and mix/match different preparations. The waiter was amazing with our 4-year-old daughter, painting a vivid picture of the butterfly-shaped pasta (farfalle)!
I can't wait to find an excuse to go back, or maybe we'll just make a special trip from the city - it was that good!3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMMMM...GOODEvery dish is made to order. You can the tell by the qualitiy of food.2/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
