Our waitress was so wonderful. She truly was. So sorry I can’t remember but I think her name started with an “A.” She was very kind and made sure we were always good on drinks. And she was helpful when we couldn’t decide between food options. (The eggplant Parmesan was phenomenal.)

While The food was entirely unremarkable and the broccoli tasted very unusual, we do recognize it is hard to find help at the moment.

We sat there for 20 minutes before the bartender came up and offered to get us a drink. The drink was not exactly as we ordered but we didn’t send it back.Finally a waiter came and had to come back two times to check on what we wanted. We had to wait another half hour for dinner. The manager seem to be hiding behind the bar or in the kitchen. As we were leaving he came over and just made a lot of excuses like “the kitchen it was down”. He should hzve offered an apology!!

Delicious! Authentic Italian food. We enjoyed it all. Service, ambiance and food. Nice selection of drinks.
I’d like to see more martini options though.
Definitely will be back. Lunch specials are awesome.

I normally do not recommend Italian but this place was excellent. We really appreciated the exceptional service throughout our night. It was neither hurried, nor were we left waiting. The food was great and the calamari was spot on (really hard for most to pull off). Really nice for a date night or other occasion.

Everything was phenomenal! From the warm crusty bread with oil, to the martinis so chilled they had chars of ice in them, to the overflowing mussels appetizer and fresh pasta entree. I wouldn’t have changed a thing. Also not rushed one bit. Let us take all the time we needed to catch up with friends.

Love love love the outdoor space they’ve created! A very European feel with the long tables and tent overhead. Adam & Ali were wonderful as always. Carlos is the best! Thanks Chef Saul for another amazing dinner!! CiNe Tacos were such a treat. We miss CiNe.

Our server was outstanding in all respects, made the experience very enjoyable. Nice wine selection. Food was likewise very good. However, for basic Italian dinner for two (split a house salad, one app, two pasta entrees, one beer, three glasses of wine) I felt it a bit overpriced at nearly $200.00 with tip.

The overall experience was awful. It was our 4 year wedding anniversary and i made the reservation on open table and also called the restaurant to make sure they received the booking. The man I spoke to was super friendly and happy we were coming in and said we’d really be taken care of and it would be a special experience since it was our special day. Well that was anything but true. Got there at 5:55 (res at 6 on a Thursday) and we were seated right away but our server was a college student who didn’t want to be there and didn’t smile once, ask us how our night was, if we’d been there before - basic customer service - let alone she didn’t even know or if she did know, didn’t acknowledge it was a special dinner for us. She checked on us three times the entire meal and the forth time it was to collect the check (and it’s not like she was slammed, she was only waiting on three tables of 2 in addition to ours). It was EXTREMELY loud and EXTREMELY cold due to the door constantly being open. It was anything but romantic, peaceful or enjoyable. Thankfully the company of my husband and the good food made it worth braving the cold. Just overall disappointed we chose to have our first date night away from our newborn and spend our anniversary there when other restaurants in the area would have gone above and beyond to make it a special dinner and occasion especially if they saw the note in the reservation or received a direct call about it. Food however was good and the pork chop was cooked to perfection. Expensive for a sub par disappointing experience and doubt we’ll be back. If you’re looking for a true dining experience with attention to detail and a romantic atmosphere, head somewhere else.

I have been here a few times and this time my parents were in town and wanted to take them somewhere special. They both really enjoyed the food, wine and experience. It was the first time I also took my children which are two teenage boys and they also loved it! Can't wait to go back.

Everybody in my group ordered pasta except for myself I ordered the halibut and it had a pungent ammonia taste to it - I left it and covered it with the farro. I didn’t make a big deal because I was the one who chose this restaurant. Everyone from my group raved about the pasta and the sauces. Ravioli , rigatoni and lasagna were delicious. I guess I’ll just order pasta next time. The service was superb!

Food was ok. Calamari was rubbery. Everything is ala Carte. Ceaser salad was dry. $16 for a glass of wine is steep. A downtown Chicago wine price. Other restaurants in Hinsdale are better.
