Can Accommodate Your NeedsThis is my favorite place in Oak Park/Forest Park. They are so friendly and accommodating to my gluten-free, garlic-free needs. I have never had a server come back to the table and say "we can't do that." Another plus for me is that they have 3oz glasses of selected wines, so if you don't want a full pour of something, you can try a smaller portion at a very reasonable cost. 3oz is plenty for me and doesn't make me feel like I've wasted half my money on wine I don't drink.
I am happy to eat there whenever I can and it's one of the first places we take out of town guests.6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMPleasantly surprised!So enjoyed Trattoria 225. I have food allergies/dietary restrictions that often make dining out a challenging experience. That wasn't the case here! They have an extensive gluten free menu and can acommodate most requests. I enjoyed my meal very much and plan to visit again!5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMGem and a diamond in the rough.

Have not tried anything I have not liked here. Will make substitutions without giving a hassle. Great selection of unique pizzas.
A must try.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMA Neigborhood GemHad brunch for 5 on Mother's Day, which turned out to be 7 instead of 5, and they made the accommodation for us despite a very late notice. The food was great and the staff is always wonderful. If you are in the area you need to try it for Brunch or Dinner.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMNice little place..Tucked in the Oak Park arts district. Nice sized menu, good service, and good food.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGroupsBecause the space can accommodate large groups, it often does. The last 2 times we have been there, they gave had large groups that were very noisy. Good and service were still very good but it was hard to carry on conversations at the table5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing!Our original party of 14 grew to 25, but the staff didn't miss a beat, and the food was incredible! Leslie is a GEM!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMTrattoria 225 is a hidden gemOak Park has several food restaurants in obvious places. Trattoria 225 is one of the best new finds in a quiet, art section of the suburb. Down the street from several unique galleries and boutiques; it is the pot of gold at the end of the Harrison street rainbow. The menu is good but not terribly unusual or creative, but the preparation, freshness and flavors were superb!I had a Portabella ravioli with vodka sauce and Italian sausage;the best I have ever tasted. It was fresh and complex. My wife had a Tilapia that met the same high praise;super fresh and flavorful. Our bundt cake with caramel filling and vanilla bean gelato was worth every stretch mark it added to my stomach. And while The Meal itself was abbundanzabul , the service was ok4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a wonderful Easter Brunch....grHad a wonderful Easter Brunch....great food and good service!3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMUsually get one of the BiancaUsually get one of the Bianca pizzas, but the time we tried the risotto and a carbonara pasta.
