Anteprima is one of my favorite restaurants! The food is seasonal and always excellent! The cod special was amazing and I am still thinking about the zucchini flower starter. Amazing! The staff is super accommodating and very knowledgeable. Love this place!

Had a good experience and would recommend One North Kitchen. Good ambiance. Sat outside. Salmon was very good. Only complaint is that portions were small.

We found this lovely gem while visiting Boystown. I must say I was so happy to have found this place! The ambiance and whole vibe was welcoming and wonderful! Food was good as well! I loved the mural when walking into the place! I absolutely loved the creative name as well! Then to find out it turned into a lesbian bar after a certain time was magical! I can’t wait to return back this weekend!

It was a quiet Easter lunch, but our server was very friendly, and made a great recommendation on the brisket biscuit. All the food and drink was good. We started with the Nachos... The toppings are a bit hidden so that could be improved but it was good. Two at the table had macs they enjoyed (Crab and 309).

Another excellent meal! We had the pork loin and salmon special and they were both excellent. It was Chef Sean Keeley’s first night at the helm and although the basic Broadguage dinner menu remains, it has been tweaked a bit to include some vegetarian/keto/gluten free items. I’m sure there are many who will appreciate that addition. As for the service, we had Rick who is the epitome of what a server should be. We absolutely love him and appreciate all that he does to make our dining experience in such a beautiful place a special treat.

I was dining alone. I was put at the back near the kitchen, but I actually preferred being a little more visible. Also because I was dining alone, the service was really fast, but well paced. My only disappointment was that there were no half size salads. I ordered the Italian salad at the suggestion of the server. It was a tad smaller but cost the same. And there was too much heat. Too many pepperoncini. It may have also been the large pieces of salami. I'd like to have a half size Caesar or a green salad with more bite sized pieces. Oh, and I should not be able to see the bottom of my coffee cup. It should be brewed stronger. But I highly recommend the baked rigatoni.

Beautiful evening to sit outside for a later evening meal at D'Vino. We ordered and thoroughly enjoyed a red wine from Puglia. Because we were not starving we shared the Eggplant Parmesean. It was cooked to perfection! We also shared a dessert a creamy delicious Tiramisu. Next time, we will dine earlier and I will order my own entre. Too good to share.
