What an awesome find! Fabulous food and service was excellent!!
Only one other table was occupied everyone seems to be following social distancing guidelines. Great lunch specials.
Everything was terrific about our dinner here! The small room was definitely reminiscent of places in Italy. Our server, Denise was great and interesting to talk to. The food and wine menus provided many choices for which to return! My wife and I shared a great Caesar salad to start. Her entree, a generous lamb shank, fell off the bone, and was tender and delicious. My veal scallopine was unique: tender fillets lightly coated, in a creamy Marsala sauce, were amazing; just as distinctive, besides the side of spinach, was the accompanying bleu cheese cubes! It all worked, to my surprise! Prices were very reasonable, and overall left with a very positive impression, as well talking about when we’d go back!!
It was a lovely evening and the food was amazing.
Wonderful food and they're open! Lets keep it that way!
This was a great little place we found in Chicago. The food and service were excellent! We’ll definitely go again!
It was a great experience coming here for the first time! The ambiance was wonderful, customer service was great, & food was delicious! I will definitely be returning.
Great food and even beautiful view of downtown Evanston! Fully recommend their outdoor setup!
This place was phenomenal came at a time that wasn't too crowded food was great servers were attentive great choice
Bread was great. Service was fast but you could tell some things were precooked based on taste. It was fine.
Great! Would definitely go again and recommend it to my friends.
When packed can be very loud. Good range of items on menu. Very good value.
pleasant and convenient restaurant setting. Attentive service. Great salad ; salmon dish was tasty but the fish was overcooked. Very good calamari appetizer; mediocre lasagna dish.
Amzingly good food for very very reasonable prices. Sounds was very very hard to hear of a Saturday night.
Always delightful! Attentive service and delicious food.
Was as usual great food but we were seated at one of the tables that is a main pathway. I’ll ask to not be seated there again and wait for a preferred area. Great restaurant and the staff and manager are wonderful.
The veal was amazing, tender and flavorful. The service was very nice and the place is nicely decorated. We really enjoyed our evening.
As always, the food, service and atmosphere were delightful!
Food was good. Decor was great. Waitress said it was a family business and everything was good on the menu. She was not very friendly at all.
Great Food! Great Company! All Around Amazing! Would Go Back In A Heartbeat!
For the first time ever, Demi let us down. There were only two couples in the restaurant, but we waited 48 minutes for our food after ordering, and were not even offered bread, which usually comes right away. The one visible server was on the phone much of the time, then pulled up a chair and sat with one of the tables, whom she clearly knew. Such a weird experience, as when we go at lunch the service is friendly and prompt. We will likely not go back for dinner anytime soon.
Delicious Italian food, neighborhood gem... small and quaint so make resies. Highly recommend the Linguine with clams and Mussels. Will return to taste other items on the menu!
One of our favorite restaurants in Evanston! Every meal has been delicious and great service.

Great spot for lunch. in downtown Evanston. Food was good and service great. Very much a local spot.
The food was outstanding— and service was prompt and courteous. We can’t wait to come back!

It became too loud for easy conversation. Food was good and service was also good.
We loved this place! Great food, friendly service.

Consistently very good. Love the pasta dishes especially.
Service is efficient and friendly.
Really enjoy eating at Trattoria Demi.
Went back a 2nd time is was so good !!!!
Absolutely delicious !!! It was so good we made plans to go back next week !!
Well balanced menu. Really tasty. We got pasta dishes but the ladies at Ergo Salon next door say they often order the pizzas which they love. I took their advice and booked a reservation which is recommended because it fills up quickly. Will definitely go again.
