Juan as always was the best. He made us feel special- his only table- while running around to make his other tables feel jut as special.
One of our favorite restaurants. We've never had a bad experience. Food / service / atmosphere
Nice table location and good service
A wonderful meal. The veal was outstanding and the branzino was very good. Profiteroles were delicious and the bombolini were very tasty. Service spot on. A delightful evening
Took server/bus staff a while to attend to us, had to ask hostess to send someone over - also had to ask 3x for water to be brought to table. Not much ambiance to speak of, and crowded - wait staff probably bumped my chair well over a dozen times with No apology. That being said, they prepared a salmon dish with wilted spinach that wasn't on current menu which was quite good, and my friends rigatoni with sausage was also really good. If the wait staff and logistics of the space could improve, we'd go more frequently, however the Frankfort location is the better option.
I was severely disappointed. I came for Valentine’s Day with a reservation at 7:30. I had to wait 15 minutes to be seated which I was fine with because they were packed and I understand, but after we were seated at 7:45 a waiter didn’t come to our table until 8:30. I think that was rediculous. I had my 80 year old grandmother with me who doesn’t like to eat really late and night which is why my reservation was scheduled at 7:30 and we didn’t get served our main dish until after 9pm....not because the food took long, but because our server came To the table to ask what we wanted to drink at 8:30. On top of that it was an absolute icebox in there...we ate with our winter jackets on and it wasn’t the Valentine’s Day experience we were hoping for. It was extremely loud with people in the dining area getting beligerantly drunk and obnoxious and there was like weird 80s dance music playing. Not what I was expecting since I came last year and had such a nice evening. I don’t know what happened but I made a mistake choosing This restaurant on Valentine’s Day. It wasn’t worth my money
It was a very busy night, but we were promptly seated. The food was remarkable. The tastiest mussels appetizer ever, warm fresh bread with olive oil. The fillet medallions melted in my mouth. My wife's salmon was also outstanding. We will be back.
Good food as always, sketchy service but it was a holiday and they were slammed.
Excellent as always. The profiteroles are superb!
Great place and terrific food and unbelievable service.
Excellent food and a really wonderful experience. We enjoyed the birthday event. The service was attentive and helpful. Our party had fish, bruschetta, ceaser salad, pasta. All were wonderful.
Excellent food and service.
The food was delicious and the server was very attentive.
Normally a good meal and not much has changed. Chicken Limone was a bit dry this time, but nothing awful and they were very good about addressing it. Would continue to return.
Still my fav- best food and service in the southwest suburbs
Wonderful, the management stepped up on a very busy night
Great food presentation
Very slow paced enjoyable dinner with great atmosphere.
Waiter was absolutely awesome. Food was GREAT. Parents really enjoyed their anniversary.
I personally am not a fan of the food but my wife loves it. The place is nice service is good it’s close to home but I like the food better at other Italian restaurants
Food was cold when presented to the table. Ordered twin petite filets. Only took one bite. Informed waiter and when they brought me a new plate of warm food they only gave me half of my order with 1 filet and a very small dollop of potatoes. Asked the waiter where my other “twin petite filet” was and he said he would have the kitchen make one and bring it out. By this time everyone was done eating. Not a good experience! Felt short changed on my meal.
Saturday night dinner with hubby. Great food, great service. Love this restaurant. Definitely make a reservation!
Good food, unfortunately it was slow to get out of the kitchen, unusual for them.
Service and food were excellent. Would dine here again.
Met with friends for a delightful evening. The food was delicious, it always is. The service was amazing. The server was attentive but not overbearing.
It was our anniversary tonight on New Years Eve. They were packed and running behind. They couldn't find our reservation, until I pointed it out. We waited for about 15 minutes to be seated. Couldn't even get a drink at the bar. Service was slow, food was slow, we were crammed together next to other tables so that you couldn't have a private conversation. They were definitely over booked. We've had lots of great dinners here before. We've also come on our Anniversary before, and it was never this crazy. We would go somewhere else, but it's a sentimental favorite because they catered our wedding on New Year's Eve, so we like to go back on our anniversary.
I have been to this restaurant more than a dozen times but I would never go there again on New Years Eve. They over crowded the restaurant and we were actually sitting at a folding table. The waiter was inattentive and he never even came by to ask if we needed another drink or how we liked our meal. I understand it was a busy night, but that should all be taken into consideration by management when they planned for the evening. Other wait staff , at nearby tables, weren’t having the same problems so it was definitely the waiter. Where the waiter slacked off, the busboy was terrific. When the food arrived some of it was hot and other items cool. I just think the restaurant tried to cram in too many people that night which is unfortunate since they usually do a great job.
We love this place good food and service!
New Year eve
What a wonderful meal for NYE!
Food was a short wait on a busy New Year's Eve and was delivered piping hot. Excellent rigatoni and sausage and rice risotto.
The only draw back was the restaurant was filled with an older crowd and the music was geared towards the younger crowd who shopped in a clothing shop. It would of been so nice if they would if had more relaxing dinner music to make this dinner experience better. Most of the servers working there are young and it seems they had the music on for them instead of the paying customers of this cute restaurant.
