We were delighted by the handpainted light fixtures and murals on the walls, not to mention the soft light pouring through the skylights. The wood-fired pizzas were outstanding, and the pasta dish I had warmed my soul. Best canoli ever and the semifreddo was to die for. A very special night with girlfriends.

I didn't hear a train the entire meal. The wood burning stove gave just enough heat to make one of our seats nice and toasty. The bright colored balls and open wood and skylight ceiling with drive shafts/machinery suspended gave this restaurant an old world feel. The staff was very responsive and pleasant. I requested a meal of the waiters suggestions and couldn't of been more pleased. Great preconcert or pregame venue for the UC or UIC. Let full of great food, so I saved a TON on overpriced United Center after dinner drinks.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways consistent ,AlwaysAlways consistent ,Always good.I enjoy the vibe.Weather at the Bar or sitting at stable service is courteous,efficient and knowledgeable.
