Very happy with the service and food - they were able to accommodate vegan dietary restrictions. When we asked what could be made plant-based, the server asked the kitchen and came back with a lot of flexibility, which was completely unexpected.

As usual, the food was absolutely outstanding. The service was fantastic as well. They have a lot of outdoor seating along the sidewalk which is very nice for the social distancing.

It was great to return to Dave and his wonderful staff. Al fresco dining on Madison Street on a beautiful Saturday evening. At first, I was wondering if the traffic would interfere but you hardly noticed it. The service was very attentive, prompt but we never felt rushed. The peppers and meatball salad were delicious as ever. My wife's penne with bolognese was rich and so flavorful. My veal limone was excellent. Finished our dinner with delicious tiramasu and the special limoncello cocktail (order it on the rocks - so much better ice cold).

We had a very nice time and neither of us are big outdoor dining people. There isn't a lot of traffic in the area, so it is more relaxing than a lot of outdoor dining areas. Food was great..

Awesome experience! Reminded me of being back in Italy. Absolutely loved how it was smaller restaurant and the entire ambiance with the Frank Sinatra music was perfect. The food was spectacular as well. Will definitely be back!

It was a lovely early dinner outside on a sunny afternoon. So nice to be out in the world again! Tables were well spaced, and the servers were appropriately attired in black gloves and masks. We had the eggplant topped with arugula appetizer and the salad caprese, both nicely portioned and excellent. The wines, an arneis and a siena, were lovely. Entrees brought a terrific short rib ravioli and a rich risotto with shrimp.

This is our 2and time visit and we brought friends with us. Had a great time. A little disappointed made reservations indicating celebrating a 2 birthdays. It was overlooked. Our waiter was great Nanino aka Joe was awesome. Only feedback is seating is extremely tight. I could hear conversations next to me and noise level is pretty high. Overall enjoyed the food and service will be back.

Always a great meal. They have classic Italian dishes, and ones that are creative interpretations. For example, they have a burrata with pesto bruschetta. Just a bit different than regular mozzarella bruschetta. Their vodka sauce and sun dried tomato sauce also have just the right blend of sweetness.

A true Chicago Italian restaurant experience. It’s not just about the food, but also the people here. I feel like I’m visiting family every time I step in. I wish I lived closer because I’d be here at least once a week..

Nice family place.
My only complaint was we felt a little rushed. I think they have a iPad ordering system and the kitchen knocked out the salads before we even got our wine.
My advice is to slow down the orders.
Otherwise everything was great
