I really wanted to love this place. My fiance and I have always thought it looked so cute and cozy from the outside and we were really excited to try it. In the end we absolutely DID NOT love it.
The food was fine, but it was dramatically over-priced for the quality. We were really disappointed by the atmosphere, which was loud and unromantic. We were seated in the back room, which felt more like a storage room with tables than a functional part of the restaurant. The worst part of the night was that we waited for over an hour for our food. We were starving and the waitress kept bringing someone else's food to our table, which only made it worse. We considered leaving several times and I wish we had. Some of the wait staff was really professional and apologized to us (and many other tables) for the delay, but in the end our night was not at all what we'd hoped. Save yourself the trouble and don't eat here. There are thousands of great Italian restaurants in Chicago, but this isn't one of them.
