Love this place!!! Had a fantastic meal and great conversation with the bartender. For sure will be coming back!!! Best Italian food in Chicago :)
Super delicious and authentic Italian food! The caprese salad and spinach risotto were both outstanding and my husband loved the half pizza (huge!). The burnt caramel gelato was a perfect ending to this fantastic dinner! I haven't had Italian food this wonderful since my last trip to Italy!
Always love coming here - took parents, sister and wife to dinner - food and service was exceptional as always. We love Letizia and her amazing staff!
I don’t like to hurt businesses, but there are many good Italian restaurants in Chicago and this is not one of them. Not one person at our table (3)was complimentary of their meal. The people were friendly, but server just disappeared/changed in middle of meal and no one ever asked if we liked our food. Sorry, I hope they were just having a bad night .
Food is always good. We had a large group (12) and they did a great job of helping us order the right amount of food and pacing it appropriately. Their pizza is some of the best in Chicago. Unique in Chicago in that it is Sicilian style. Highly recommend!
Group of 5 had a girls night. Was a wonderful experience. Food was delicious (get the gnocchi), waiter was great, and owner came to chat with us. Overall lovely little Italian joint.
Good service and food.
Love Love love this place
We ordered an appetizer, salad, and entree, and the waitress delivered everything to our very small table at the same time. We felt as if we were being rushed, even though the restaurant was empty. The food was okay, but spending $100 to be out the door in 30 minutes is not a great date night.
Authentic and delicious
Charming restaurant. No hype around it-which is the best part. The owner came up to our table and talked to us about her dishes. Really really really great food.
Visiting my daughter in Chicago and wanted to find a nice restaurant to take her to in Wicker Park. This one is a gem. Excellent food from charcuterie to the main courses to the three panna cotta dessert. Felt cozy on a cold winter night. Service was attentive without being oppressive. Would definitely visit again and hope to do so the next time I am in Chicago again!
so very happy to have found this hidden gem in my neighborhood. the food was amazing and I can’t wait to come back to check out the cafe during the day! will definitely be back for dinner as well :)
Love the food, great, flavorful and authentic
This is the real deal. The pasta is home made and cooked perfectly. It is like dining in a restaurant in Rome. The cod was also just perfect.
Dinner was very good, disappointed that our arancini appetizer was cold. Waiter brought us another but nobody really wanted it , would have rather had it taken off our bill or a dessert for the table instead. Also being in foodservice and hospitality for over 26 years I expect a thank you when I tip way over 20%. I guess I'm old school because it doesn't happen. I guess I don't need to go out of my way to do that anymore since nobody says thank you or stops by the table after bill is paid to see if anyone needs anything.
We love this place, the food is always perfect, the staff is amazing.
The food was amazing!!!! It was extremely hot in the restaurant, so if you go, dress lightly! The service was awesome as well!
Excellent fare with super service from our waiter.. Nice spot in a nice location.
Lively atmosphere. Great food. Great wine. Would definitely go back.
Small neighborhood restaurant with a bar, fairly close to the United Center. Attentive service and excellent Italian food—specials included homemade pasta with shrimp and garlic and butternut squash ravioli.
Waitress sang happy birthday to me and actually had a really good voice!
My boyfriend and I went here on a Friday night date night. I was not sure what to expect, but was in the mood for some good Italian food. I was so surprised at the quality, menu choices, and flavor of all the food we ordered. We got the Dragona Pizza which I would HIGHLY recommend. Also very much enjoyed the wine flights. Will definitely be back to try more!
Great food, great music, great ambience, great service.
Our group had a wonderful evening of great food in the beautiful outdoor space.
Service was slow and awkward... food was mediocre. Bruschetta selection was a fun add to the menu though.
One of our favorite places. Leticia is usually there and makes her rounds talking to her cusotoners and making them feel at home. The rear patio is secluded and charming.
We went out for an early Friday dinner. There was no one in the restaurant, but it was nice for a Friday at 5pm. The service was wonderful and the food was decent Italian.
The back patio was everything it had been promised to be. The craft cocktails were wonderful. Food was outstanding and very reasonable. The service was unfortunately very slow - they seemed overwhelmed (Crain's had just listed them as one of the best hidden patios in the city that week - perhaps they we caught short staffed). Our drinks were very slow coming to us (like 25 mins) and I had finished my meal before my wine came (I cancelled the wine order and was offered it for free, but I had already finished my meal).
Was not overly crowded, food was really good, enjoyed eating on the outdoor patio
We LOVED the back patio! What an oasis from Division street! Really pretty and quiet. Food was excellent and large quantities. The menu was huge--so hard to make a selection. My only gripe was the waitress, Tattiana (sp?). She was friendly, but pushy. She said she was going to leave us alone and then didn't. We ordered a bottle of wine and she brought us two glasses instead, which we drank, and ordered two more, but felt we were jipped by not getting the bottle. We hope the service is better next time.
Love this hidden gem
Great spot for real Italian food - large patio. Pastas and mussels very good; pizzas are more like flatbreads. Good service and lively ambiance.
Very good meal outside in the backyard dining area- it was a very pretty, comfortable and spacious area. We were a large group and service was good, traditional Italian food was delicious for all. Waiter wasn't the friendliest, but OK. Overall a very nice place!
Delicious food, helpful wait staff and beautiful outdoor patio seating.
Great spot with one of the best outdoor patios in Chicago!
Tableside Polenta! I didn't even know it was a thing until eating here. It was excellent
Good food but saw 2 rats in the back patio
Local favorite. Excellent, authentic Italian cuisine, with most of the staff being from Italy. The patio in the back is a must see during the warmer seasons - absolutely beautiful.
The patio in the back is lovely - you'd never guess it from the front. The food is excellent. Highly recommend this place.
