We've been here half a dozen times, and the food has been pretty good, my favorite dish is the Langostino. The service has not been that great, each time we've gone there the waiters have either been rude, or really weren't into their job, like they wish they were somewhere else.

The exterior dinning space, the windows, the front doors, and the bathrooms are dirty. Best use your judgement when the light isn't shining bright and there's a romantic glow. This place is DIRTY! Think I'm too particular, check the place during the day, and the competition. Being said, I do like this place, but they need a major scrub, then... More

Arlington Heights is not a destination we think of for a good meal, not fancy, just looking for above average. C&C was that-above average. Large menu, good service, reasonable prices.. and the two meals we ahd were excellent. A steak dish for under $30 was outstanding. The photos online make the restaurant look more refined than it was in person.... More

Was able to enjoy dinning outside and enjoying a great italian dish dinner. The wait staff was great along with the food. No complaints. I would visit again.

I have been here a few times now and each time it's a nice experience. The food is really tasty and the service is very good too. A couple of things that stand out besides the food and service- they make great martinis and I like how you can see a chef making fresh pasta right there in front of... More

The food and service was exceptional, however there was only one women's bathroom for the entire restaurant! Unacceptable! I cannot even believe it could have been ADA compliant as there was so much extraneous crap in it. I had to wait 25 minutes for one child to get out of the one bathroom for women. Unfortunately, the entire experience was... More

Still fun upscale casual dining in Arlington Heights. Addition of patio dining gives a fabulous "Euro" feel on warm nights. Bartenders Sergio and Donald are everyones best friends.

We ate there last night and we were not disappointed.I had to LaBella salad and clam and mussels appetizer. I didn't notice many clams but I enjoyed it nonetheless. Others in my party had various pastas with meatballs and they raved about them. The chicken tortellini soup was enough for a meal. Portions are good size. We will definitely return.The... More

We've been going here for 10 years and it never disappoints. Carlos is the perfect host and treats you like family. The atmosphere is lively but the meals are relaxing. You're encouraged to take time to enjoy your meal and are never rushed. Food is excellent-- Bella salad with figs, arugula, pears and goat cheese; spaghetti Bolognese, osso bucco, salmon,... More
