In the Glenview CC, this restaurant has delicious food. The entree and appetizer options were limited, but the meals were good.

Just wonderful. We were so glad we dined, fabulous pour of Klinker Brick blend, charred Caesar to die for and loved the short rib gnocchi. Service and staff was kind and attentive. Thank you. We will be back!

No sand traps here. Always a hole in one. Creative menu, fair prices. Easy parking. Yes, a diamond in the rough.

Very quiet. Food was decent not special. Service was very friendly and polite but very very inexperienced.

Maybe in the day when you get benefit of windows might try again. I think they have to go a lot further to make it work.

It was a quiet Thursday evening. We were surprised that our table of four plus one other table of two were the only guests in the restaurant between 6 pm and 815 pm. There was a Rotary club gathering of about twenty people in an adjoining room. The food was good and our server, Hannah, was excellent. Three of us had the LaSagna dinner and one had the Rigatoni entree. Everything is ala-carte. My wife and I shared a “grilled Caesar” salad and the other two shared a house salad. Not sure if the food caused this because we both had the same meal but she became sick after returning home and “lost” her whole meal before feeling better. I don’t think that we will be going here again after that experience.

Salmon was good but a little too salty. Maybe the capers caused it to be that way!

We had heard nice things, so we thought we would give it a try. The menu gives choices for every palate and level of hunger. We had the stuffed mushrooms in a creamy Marsala sauce that were out of this world!! We then had the lasagna- it was fresh and packed with flavor. The ambiance and service, made our evening perfect! We will definitely be going back- very soon.

New fall/winter dinner is a hit! Some classic items were resized and priced for the better. Staff attentive, but not intrusive.

Staff and management are exceptionally nice and extremely attentive.
Situated in the clubhouse of the golf course, which makes the ambiance slightly odd for an Italian concept in a golf house etc. ( Frank Sinatra + Sports center)
The food was good, however the prices were exceptionally high.
I may go back for a burger, but would mostly likely not go back for a family dinner.

Great food in a low key atmosphere. They are trying to be creative in their entrées. Drinks are a little small.

Outdoor dining with a gorgeous view! Sitting on the patio, overlooking the golf course, watching the sunset...combined with attentive service and delicious food. We’ll be back for sure! Our server, Ev, was efficient and personable. Special Brussels Sprouts app was one of the best I’ve had, and I’ve tried a lot of them. Chicken stuffed with risotto was fabulous, and a huge portion meant I get lunch tomorrow. Spouse had the gnocchi, which had plenty of sausage for each bite. Ev recommended the Caesar salad, with charred romaine...sounds weird, but we loved it.
A little hard to find the entrance, as a first time visitor, but next time will be easier. Coming back soon!

It was our first time at Coarse Italian and we all thoroughly enjoyed the food. We had some delicious wings and stuffed mushrooms for appetizers and our main courses were: eggplant parm, lasagna and crispy chicken. Everything was superb. We had tiramisu for dessert which also was yummy. Our server was Maria and she was very personable, efficient and had a very fun personality!!
