    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.

    The view overlooking the golf course and water is very nice. There is seating outside in the shade on their porch and also out in the sun. Their burger/pizza is very good! Their staff is both friendly and courteous!

    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.

    For an Italian restaurant I expected more options of Italian food on the menu. The outside grounds are beautiful and the outside seating also beautiful. My window view from our table was also beautiful. I had burger, which was char-broiled and delicious.

    We chose this restaurant due to all the positive reviews but we had a subpar experience: very slow service, frenetic atmosphere with a large party nearby, and dinner entrees that, when arrived, were inedible. Our server was gracious and felt bad but we will not be returning.

    I’m a hard critic when it comes to Italian food. Everything was good nothing was great. Service was good. Guys working there were nice. It seems like it should be a good burger spot on a golf course vs a nice dinner place.

    A really nice place to have in Glenview. Very attentive service and creative cocktails. Food is very good. We had the proscuitto wrapped dates for an appetizer that were excellent. Our entrees were very good as well and the portions were plentiful. Highly recommended.

    The mixologist was our waiter. Great guy, very descriptive when answering food and drink questions. Great, fresh pasta. I was surprised realizing it was the golf club! Not many patrons, but a great time with great food. Even caught glimpses of my NCAA b-ball game on the bar tv!

    Best date we've ever had! Our server was extremely helpful with answering all of our questions about the options, since me and my partner are terrible at making decisions. The table set ups are so romantic. She loved the food presentations, and I loved the football they had playing on the screens over at the bar.

    Coarse never disappoints! Met friends for dinner, everyone enjoyed their meal. I had the skirt steak—excellent! Husband liked his short ribs gnocchi (not the first time he’s ordered it), friends had pasta dish & grilled Caesar with chicken. Wine excellent.
