    It was a beautiful night to sit outside. The food was delicious - service was a bit slow - but would definitely go back!

    Whether it was the pizza, the steak or the pasta, everything was very, very salty. Service was spotty, with great difficulty getting the check. Atmosphere outdoors was nice, not sure they needed the lounge singer, which just made it difficult to hear conversation.

    Our favorite Evanston restaurant. Food is consistently outstanding. Pasta dishes creative and perfectly al dente. Meat and fish rotate often enough that there is always something that feels new to order.

    La Macchina is one of our favorite Restaurants in the Evanston-Wilmette area. The food, wine, and ambiance are great. We like the personality of the people and place.

    I have been with my husband for date night but took a group of six and we did the table service Branzino bone in - chef and his assistant did the presentation table side - we felt so special it was a super authentic experience. The fresh seafood and house made everything is authentic to how food service is all throughout Italy.
