From everything that I had heard about this restaurant over the years, I decided to go for our 1 year wedding anniversary. The food was really good, but wasn’t great… and the amount of noise was FAR from being a special date atmosphere. It was more like a noisy bar with Italian music.

An iconic and intimate space, melt in your mouth filet mignon, great wine list, and a to die for chocolate cake for desert……and NOT overpriced!

Hard to get waiters attention. No real interest in us or how we were enjoying our meal. Steaks under advertised weights and not properly cooked. Side dish Brussels sprouts wan and undercooked. We are not frequent complainers. But this restaurant is a shadow of its former self. Our advice: you can do far better for the price.

Friends in town, Angelo was great and accommodating as was our waiter Juan and staff. Can’t beat this nostalgic experience and watching local crowd gather for good Italian meat and dishes.

Love the atmosphere and the service was outstanding. We had an amazing filet, yummy rigatoni and pretty good cacio pepe. The garbage salad was amazing. The funfetti cake was okay- very pretty but a bit dry.

I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

A few years ago I wrote a disappointing review on our visit. I got a call from management expressing their concern. I was floored. He sent me a gift certificate to try them again.
It took a few years to get here but I am glad we did. The service was really good and the food was delicious. We had the fig and prosciutto appetizer, shared a small garbage salad, veal saltimbucco with mashed potatoes and linguine with clams. All dishes were plentiful and kudos to the chef on the best mashed potatoes.
Definitely try this restaurant when in CHicago
