    Had a 6:00 reservation for 5 of us. We were the only ones there. 2 other parties came in while we were there. Our waiter seemed to be doing everything! Drinks, etc. We ordered a bunch of things to share. Waiter kept telling us it was an order for 1 person. Eggplant was good and we did split it. Also had salad for the table, dates, salmon and chicken Marsala. Everything was tasty, nothing outstanding but everything was good. Also had a brownie sundae (?) but didn’t come with chocolate sauce. Waiter told us they closed at 7:00 (had 6:00 reservation), and this was at 8:00. Then a Manager came out and said they closed at 8:30. We felt much better. Don’t know that I would rush back but it was an okay meal.

    Wonderful food...two of us had the Stuffed Crispy Chicken, which was two large pieces stuffed w Parmesan, risotto and peas in a lemon cream sauce...really tasty! We also had hot toddy cocktails...delish! Service was great...attentive and efficient. Highly recommend!

    The food was not edible. The crispy chicken was completely covered in a white cream sauce. When asked how the food was, after seeing most of it left on the plate, we told the manager that there was way too much sauce. Our feedback was completely dismissed by the manager saying, “You can’t get too much of a good thing.” The pappardelle with meat ragu was tasteless and the pasta was mushy. Crossing this restaurant off my list.

    The food was good but service was spotty. My expectations were much higher in regards to the atmosphere. When looking at photos there were table clothes and there were none. Very causal dinning experience. But as I said the food was good and the wine was inexpensive. We had a nice dinner with friends.

    Delicious pappardelle, but some preferred menu items not available Great service! The weather was beautiful for November which resulted in a large group of golfers being noisy in the bar area Fortunately we got to see a beautiful sunset over the golf course and then the full moon

    we took a chance on this for a Friday night dinner. We found both our meals to be excellent - high marks to the chef. The shrimp linguini and mushroom risotto were delightful. We shared a salad to begin our meal which was excellent. We will most definitely return

    We've eaten here before and loved it. It's a great location with a nice view, particularly around sunset. During this visit, the restaurant seemed slammed with business on a Saturday night and was slightly understaffed. The staff did their best to serve us, but we had to ask a few times for little things that tended to get lost in the shuffle. We all had the charred caesar salad, which was delicious, and I had the spaghetti entree. It seems sort of mushy for a pasta dish and was okay. Other entrees ordered by people in my group included a shrimp fettuccine, a burger, and a chicken entree and my friends were happy with their food. The menu seem more limited than when we ate here a year or so ago. I am wondering if they have had to adapt it due to the general staffing issues that many restaurants have experienced. All in all, this is a hidden gem in Glenview and I recommend that people check it out!

    It was very nice to dine outside at the golf course. The fig appetizer was delicious as was my main course of pappardelle with short ribs, though it was more of a ground beef texture. My blueberry drink was lovely. Would definitely recommend.

    Have been here a few times since it opened. After something of a bumpy start including Covid, they seem to have hit their stride. Menu has been updated. Food quality also has gotten better. Was very pleased with everything. Definitely will go back again, and recommend this to all.

    Service was terrible. It took us 15 minutes just to get the attention of a waiter. Then it took us a long time to get drinks and food. A second glass of wine was ordered but never received. Also we had to go to the bar to get our bill. Food was Ok but not anything special. The outdoor music was fantastic.

    Outside seating has nice view of golf course but food is par at best. Fresh pastas (Gnocchi and Pappardelle) both lacked flavor and were very bland. Considering they charge over $25 for pasta entrees, much better Italian options in the area with tastier food.

    Lovely outdoor location overlooking the golf course. We had reservations, but were still seated in the casual high top tables that lack linens. The regular seating with white linens were what we were expecting since we were celebrating a birthday. A little bit of a disappointment. The food was good and reasonably priced. The servers were very helpful and friendly, just a little understaffed. I would recommend going for the view, especially on a Monday when not many places are open.
