Alas I felt that the food slipped quite a bit since we were last here. The tagliolini with truffle was completely clumped together and on the dry side, and the truffle portion was stingy to say the least. The asparagus souffle was quite dense and...More

The in-house made noodles are to die for!! The pink sauce is amazing. Don’t miss the zucchini blooms. Only downside is the space - they’ve got a few too many tables. I spent the meal getting bumped by servers and other guests. Despite that, I...More

Tiny, romantic restaurant with exquisite food and service. Excellent variety on their menu and wine list. Try their zucchini blossom appetizer. Their short ribs are perfect along with the risotto. Best, freshest, lemon sorbet ever! What a gem!

This is a nice, busy neighborhood Italian restaurant. We had come from a party and arrived at 9:30pm. The restaurant was full and people were still coming in. We were first served stale, dried out bread. I had beef carpaccio and my husband had the...More

Four of us ate dinner before a presentation at Francis Parker School. We could have done better. My wife ordered one of her favorites - pasta with manila clams. The clams were very good, but the pasta was well undercooked (raw in places), an absolute...More

This place has amazing fresh pasta. I decided to try 3 different types. I got the Bolognese, Pesto, and Pumpkin Brown Butter Sage Ravioli. All of them were amazing and I will defiantly be back. Come here for amazing Italian food in Lincoln Park.
