I went to steppenwolf for a play and wanted an easy place to grab dinner. This is 1/2 a block away, they support efforts to keep on schedule, and the food was good. We will be back!

This is a very reliable pre-theater or post-theater matinee (Steppenwolf, Royal George) dinner spot. Always a good selection of entrees; servers appear always know which entrees are best. Fish specials are predictably good. Prices are just a bit high for quality/quantity, but food is usually...More

Two couples dined early, before a Steppenwolf performance. Chose it for convenience to the theater and parking garage (2-block walk), which opens at 5:00 for 7:30 performance, and of course for good Trip Advisor food reviews. It did not disappoint. As with most Italian restaurants,...More
