Italian | West Loop, Chicago

Manager Jesus was really on top of providing attentive service, as the server for our table had a large group. We enjoyed the happy hour offerings in the bar prior to be seated and really enjoyed the drinks and appetizers. The homemade pasta was delicious, as were the brick chicken, branzino and wonderful selection of wines. This place was packed on a Monday evening - we will return and I highly recommend. More

Discover Chicago

Winds whipping off Lake Michigan are no match for hungry Chicagoans in pursuit of the ultimate burger and a respite from brutal winters. Historically at the heart of the meat industry, the city’s slaughterhouses now house tony Michelin-starred restaurants, and deep-dish is just one of countless takes on Italian American staples in town. Arguably the American capital of molecular gastronomy, Chicago is at once a trendsetter and the capital of casual. Calling all carnivores.
