Highly recommend getting a reservation as this place is not large and there always seems to be a queue. Once seated tho service was quick and we took our waiters recommendations for dinner. So glad we did. Really great food! Appears to be a place a lot of friends gather to meet at as other tables were filled with groups. And looks to be child friendly as well since there were a few tables with small children. Prices very reasonable. Will definitely be back to try out more of the menu More

My partner and I have been enjoying this restaurant ever since we moved to the area. The ambiance is ideal for an enjoyable dinner with pleasant conversations. The staff is as nice as they come. Hospitable, friendly and knowledgeable of their menu. And the food is amazing. Pesto Linguine, Stuffed Shells, Polenta in a mushroom cream sauce and their Bruschetta is among our favorites. Plus, they serve warmed butter with their bread. That’s a winner right there. More

Finally! A good Filipino restaurant in Lakeview/Lincoln Park area. It’s more like a bar, casual, down to earth. The food is good and tastes like your TITA’s cooking. Menu more on Filipino favourites like Adobo, pancit, sisig and Silogs. So don’t expect pakbet or dinuguan. I wish they have a seasonal menu for these dishes though! More
