Food and drinks were great, but it took a long time for cocktails to be delivered.
It was a Saturday night and the restaurant only had a few tables filled. It was surprising that service was slow with so few customers. The calamari appetizer had good flavor but it was very tough and rubbery. My friend and I ordered a linguini dish with muscles, clams, shrimp and calamari in a marinara sauce that was fair. My wife ordered sea bass which I also tasted and we both thought was very good. Another person ordered chicken oreganato which I did not taste, but was told it was just ok. I was disappointed because the reviews I read on the restaurant were rated high, and with my experience, I was a bit disappointed. Maybe caught them on a bad night.
Great neighborhood family owned spot. Food was great. Very attentive service but not overload. You have to appreciate the city life as the train passes by across the street regularly. Great Place! Will def be back.
It was a great night food was excellent
Great Bartender, Very Good food, Weird waiter. Recommended us leaving a CASH tip. Awkward. He wasn't very friendly or great on service. Food and Ambiance were great though. WE may try the Oak Park location next time.
We chose to have outdoor seating because the weather was great. The only disadvantage is the train noise. But I would definitely come here again.
did not live up to my expectations.food was not as posted on the menu and not up to par at all..It's been a while since we went there and we will not go back.
Had an early dinner, before a show. Noise level very low, but there were few tables seated early on a weekday. Food was fantastic and at a reasonable price. I would definitely dine here again
This was for a graduation. I don't usually leave check moments but for this I have too. The food was tasteless, the coke tasted plasticly my kids just drank water because of this, and I ordered an Old fashion that came looking pink in color.
Had a great meal - food was a little slower coming out of the kitchen than we would have liked but when it arrived, it was great. Easy access and plenty of parking around the restaurant.
Always pleasure coming to this location. Pretty good Italian menu. Clams when in season and available a must to get. Wine recommendation from our server an excellent choice
I really like the food at La Notte, but this is the second time we left with a sour taste from our experience. The restaurant puts prices on its menu, but it decides to increase the prices around holidays. We knew the exact same items were the normal price on saturday and increased on Mother's Day menu so we went on Saturday instead. When we received the bill, they decided to charge us the holiday pricing. When I asked the waitress, she said we have the right to increase the prices when we want to, "it's always higher on the weekends." I just do not understand how they think this is a good way to do business. If you fluctuate things that much, put market price so you can ask. Don't go for the gotcha moment when you get the bill, and we've been upcharged an additional $20 because you felt like it. I've given them chances, but they have officially lost my business.
Great food, great night out and great service. Really a good location for almost any type of dining outing. Highly recommend to anyone in the area.
My husband and I had a rare date night, and we decided to try La Notte. It always smells decious from the outside, so we decided to give it a try. We felt welcomed immediately upon entering through the door! With a warm greeting we were escorted to our seat. The restaurant was cozy and comfortable and even romantic. The menu was large, with a note that they also make many other dishes not on the menu, just ask. We were encouraged to try the specials, and we both did. My pasta was cooked perfectly. The ingredients were fresh, the sauce was great. My husband had a seafood dish and it was fresh and tasty. The service was excellent, quick, efficient, and friendly. We enjoyed our experience so much we have already gone back with the kids.
Great experience, good food and Rose was a wonderful hostess and waitress which made the evening even better
Not a fan. The food was quite good, but the atmosphere at 7:30pm on a Saturday nite was dead. We were 3 of maybe 12 people in the place. The waiter was loud and brusk...possibly drunk? They charged $10 to split a pasta dish between two people even though we ordered an appetizer and a side dish, which, IMO is pretty tacky.
Even more tacky was at the end of the meal, as I was able to fill out my charge slip, the waiter asked me if I could tip him in cash and not add it to my bill, because he get taxed if it gets added to the check. It was so rude, and put me in a very uncomfortable spot.
Food was average at best, but suggested wine was very good. Server began to leave, and had to be called back so the last one of our party of 4 could order a drink . At end of meal server asked that tip be in cash.
The food was fabulous, and the service was outstanding. Thank you
One of the best!
Love the food! Great service and very welcoming! Can't wait to visit again!
This Family owned restaurant is a Gem! They have the most delicious authentic Italian food and their daily specials are worth trying. I like the GF pasta and the willingness of the chef to personalize your dish by adding or taking away any ingredients to suit your taste. We have not eaten at their second location in Oak Park but plan on going to that one the next time we dine out. When ever we have a special occasion, this is our go-to restaurant but we dine there just-because as well.
Excellent food and service
To bad it closed at the end of 2017
We love la note cafe, never had a bad meal. The staff will customize your meal any way you want. If you haven't tried it you should.
Delicious spicy marinara sauce
This restaurant is truly the best Italian I have ever had with many homemade from scratch options. Service is great.
Great food. Nice family atmosphere. I will go back
We passed by on our way to the movies, saw they had finally opened and returned the next day to try it out. The food was freshly prepared and absolutely delicious! Service was friendly and attentive but overly. It's a bit pricey but not outrageous and definitely worth it. This place is a new Oak Park favorite.
Absolutely great food as always! Highly recommend!
La Notte was recommended by a friend who it was a great family run restaurant so we gave it a try. Great food and great service. Very welcoming and friendly owners. Plan on going back a lot.
The service is great. Its like your private dining experience. Really enjoy going
Excellent food, excellent service. Giovanni made us feel comfortable and welcome!
We enjoyed a nice anniversary dinner at La Notte Cafe. The meal was delicious, the service was outstanding and the atmosphere was terrific. I will definitely dine here again.
La Notte always feels like home except for the fact that you never have food this good at home. The atmosphere is always welcoming, friendly, and genuine. The food is exceptional and you always note the pride they take in serving the best. This place is a hidden gem in Berwyn an oasis where one can relax and enjoy the pleasures of being pampered.
La Notte is THE best! Great food, great fun and they REALLY make you feel like family! HIGHLY recommended.
With all the Italian restaurants in and around Chicago, it great to find one that distinguishes itself in it's great food and personal service. I was also pleasantly surprised to find that they offer gluten free options, too. We were told that so many of their dishes originate right in their kitchen, that one can deviate from the published menu. I ordered a simple baked pasta dish, but am anxious to try more when we return.
This is the best Italian food around. Giovanni made special dishes for all 4 of us celebrating a special dinner. The grilled calamari is one of my favorites and Frankie always has a wine pairing suggestion for what we order. The night is topped off with homemade Limoncello which is outstanding. Cannot wait to see the new place and congrats!
Amazing as always
Very nice really enjoyed dining at La Notte, felt like dining at home food was excellent they make you feel comfortable like you belong
We have visited with Giovanni, Angela and Francesco three times now and each time we eat at this restaurant, we walk away in awe of our experience.....AND with extremely happy bellies!!! We live in Texas so almost each time we visit the Chicago area, we try to make it to La Notte....AND we bring new people for each visit. EVERY BITE OF FOOD that we have consumed on our last 3 visits has been exceptionally fantastic.....the tastes buds are so very pleased!!! There are very few nice restaurants that you can say that about......it doesn't matter what we order each time we, all of it is cooked to perfection! We would recommend this restaurant to anyone.....whether the live in the Chicago area or right here in Austin, Texas.....our neighbors will most likely dine at La Notte the next Chicago trip they take!!!
