    First time dine in here since Covid. Really good. Nice young servers. Attractive look. Wife had Berkshire pork chop. Me the house salmon special. Both delicious. Grilled Calamari app. Gelato, good strong coffee. We went early so it was quiet. Got a bit louder as crowd arrived. The effort here shows. We will be back soon.

    This was our second time at Taurasi and it didn't disappoint! The pastas and sauces are all made fresh in-house and everyone enjoyed what they ordered. I had a spinach ravioli with spicy asiago cream sauce with diced filet mignon that was amazing - even the next day reheated! The gnocchi was light and fluffy and good in both sauces ordered at the table. The pizza was also surprisingly good - a lot of cheese and a crispy medium thickness crust. And the service was attentive but not annoying. All in all, it was a great dining experience and I'd recommend trying it out. We'll be back again - this is our new favorite Italian restaurant in the area.

    We just found this restaurant in Westmont. We had some spritz cocktails ( my husband had the aperol and I had one with elderflower). They were both good. We shared a side salad ( balsamic) and had the meatballs for an appetizer. My husband had the papperadelle and I had a pasta primavera. Tiramisu for dessert. This restaurant is a great find. The food and service were both excellent.

    Baked clam appertizer was good, but food was low in seasoning and nothing to get excited about. Waiter was attentive, courteous, and friendly, but that's not enough to compensate for high prices for somewhat ordinary fare.

    Sweet, family-friendly and authentic - owner is from Sorrento and the feel is welcoming and comfortable. It's got a bistro feel and not that of a stuffy, old-school Italo-Americano eatery. I thoroughly enjoyed my gluten-free menu choices too. Now, let's talk about the best part - an extensive, well-culled wine list with a never-ending list of reds that impressed even me and I have studied Italian wines for decades. Mid-range pricing capped on an excellent dining experience. Note: take a seat in the back room - it's quieter as the main dining and bar area is a bit too chaotic.

    I came here a second time on June 17 with my girlfriend (and the second time, with her sister). Both times, the food and service were amazing- by far, the best Italian food I've had in the Chicago area. Almost everything is made on site and the staff and owners are super friendly and extremely knowledgeable about food and wine and happy to share their knowledge. Highly recommended!

    Fantastic dining experience. Can taste the 'homemade' in the pasta, and there are several dishes on the menu that are not the same ol', same ol' as on every other Italian restaurant in the suburbs. Had the pasta with clams, squid ink fettucine with a slightly spicy red seafood sauce, grilled lamb chops perfectly cooked medium rare, and meatball filled lasagna. All were fantastic, as was the service. Cocktails were fairly priced.

    We have visited Taurasi several times recently and have experienced excellent food and service each time. Last evening we enjoyed the best sword-fish steaks we have ever tasted. Our server, Jake, was most knowledgable on the menu and wine-list. Great atmosphere as well. Will definitely be back.

    Not new but new to us. First went about 4 weeks ago. Went two weeks in a row, skipped a week and went back the next. If your familiar with LaScarola, this too is southern cooking but unbelievably the best! I suggest taking the baked clam appetizer put it over pasta with extra sauce. All their pastas are homemade along with their desserts. You don’t like lemon, try their homemade lemon cake which one of their servers make. You’ll want a second piece. Their sliced sirloin with Parmesan cheese demi glaze is another good one but you have to do the pasta with the baked clams!!
