I made a reservation on OpenTable, and had to back it up. Easy! It was a gorgeous day and the outdoor seating was full. We were sat at a table in the bar, which was a tad on the darkish side. The focaccia bread we ordered also came with a plate of roasted garlic in olive oil (yum.) my husband had the rainbow trout. I had the caccia e pepi (sp.?) Both were pretty good. No desert for us. The server was attentive and experienced.

We’re expecting outdoor dining but we’re moved inside to a dining room that was fairly stark. Waiter was slow to take our order but the food came out quickly and it was very good. Spendy for the meal when the night before we had better service and wine at another Italian restaurant close by.

Server was arrogant and rude. He did not bring things ordered and we had to ask again. They are living on their pre-pandemic reputation. So sad.

The food wasn’t anything special.

The waitress was very nice but should have told us that the salad that came with the trout was really only a garnish. We would have ordered salads if we knew that.

Very pleasantly surprised. Reserved based on cacio e pepe on menu, and changed mind to mushroom and sweet onion pizza, adding sausage. It was absolutely amazing, ultra thin, firm crust in the classic Chicago style, nicely layered with tasty sauce ingredients and a perfect amount of cheese. Polpettini (meatballs) appetizer in tomato sauce was nicely accompanied by the excellent bread. My wife's entree, pasta with oil and garlic was similarly a home run. I would say this is one of the gem's in the LEYE crown, stumbled upon almost by accident by virtue of being able to get a reservation late. Ambience, such as it is, is virtually non-existent, at least inside, but don't let the rather institutional decor deter you from going. One of the best pizzas in Chicago, and I grew up on the South Side, home of great pizza. I highly recommend it.

We were placed in the bar area despite making reservations 2 weeks in advance. Food wonderful. Server attentive. 2 complaints: 1. Bread is no longer complementary?? Never have experienced that before. Comes out with roasted garlic and they charge you $5.95 for that . 2. Bill states No Cash only credit cards. Then they proceed to charge $5.47 for CC processing! For real! Reason given by waiter was extra cost for covid cleaning. NEVER have had this since Covid has occurred. Nickle and diming customers.

Excellent food and service. Their pizzas are outstanding and I love their braised short ribs. For drinks, I had an Old Fashioned. A bit sweet, but still excellent.

The food was delicious! Be aware of the added 3% automatic gratuity - it was written in small print at the bottom of the menu but was not mentioned to us specifically, and we would not have been aware of it while we were tipping if we hadn't observed it ourselves.

Always yummy and the service is top notch! There were two of us and we feasted. We started with the delectable bread and roasted garlic, then a margarita pizza, then roasted chicken breast with broccoli and a salad. The waiter reminded us that we were there a few minutes before 6 pm, so could take advantage of Happy Hour with glasses of wine.

Casual Italian affair. The pizzas are quite thin. They are all 11 inches. If you are used to a regular pizza, you might need two for satiety. Simple menu. Desserts are nice too. Recommend! 👍🏼

We were told the main dining room was closed even though I reserved a table in standard seating, not the bar. It then surprised me to see other diners get seated in the main dining room as the night went on. Also, the menu was cut back and they now charge you almost $5 for bread, which used to be free. Overall, a bit disappointed with this place’s decline. It used to be a favorite.
