Went here based on a recommendation by a friend who is a foodie. Reservation made, and table was available on time. Wine and cocktail list was good! The menu had a great variety. Ordered the special of short rib ravioli and seafood risotto. The soup and salad left much to be desired. However, the entrees were great! The cannoli dessert was fresh and very tasty.

Noise level in the room and social distancing was not great. Very attentive service!

Nice atmosphere and staff. Food would have been better if it wasn't extremely salty. I've had pasta hundreds of times before in my life and never tasted the salt. Had the burn of sodium in my mouth afterwards.

The pasta dishes we ordered (Pappardelle Bolognese & Orecchiette con Gamberie Broccoli) were surprisingly average.

Made in Italy is a great restaurant in downtown Glen Ellyn near the Metra Station. The food is fantastic and the service likewise. Ask for Dino for fantastic service.
Skip the chain places, and check this restaurant out.

First time visit and will be returning. Small seating area but not very crowded. Had paprdelle and rigatoni in vodka sauce. Generous portions, good service, really friendly owners and wait staff.
Will be returning for this great Italian food experience.

This is one of those small, quaint family-owned restaurants where you feel like you have been transported to Italy - really cozy, warm, welcoming staff. The food is also like home-made - delicious. We had the bruschetta and zucchini flowers for appetizers (amazing), with four entrees of gnocchi, chicken piccata, sea bass, and chicken parm - all delicious. It was our first visit - such generous portions that we all had leftovers for the next day! We will definitely return!

Our group dined at the restaurant right after work for appetizers and celebration. We dined in the "side bar" room north of the actual dining room, which offered completely private (and so social distanced) ambiance at the very early hour we arrived. It is normally busier during the evening hours. Shelby was a fantastic waitress, the food was loved by every member of our group, and we will be back again!
