We visited with family and grandchildren. The food was plentiful and well presented. I had potato soup, ossobucco (fantastic), an interesting salad with small burratto wrapped in a phyllo pastry. Service was first class. We'd come back.

We had bruschetta as an appetizer, which was pretty good. The portion size was small compared to some other restaurants. We also ordered the Bucatini All' Amatriciana, which was good. I prefer a thicker tomato sauce with more of a tomato taste, but this one was still pretty good. It wasn't too spicy. My friend ordered the Risotto ai Frutti... More

Deserves way more thumbs up and a higher ranking in Evanston overall in my opinion. Specialty pizza choices offer fresh, high quality produce and meat toppings plus with the wood-fired oven can bake quickly. Our table ordered two. Roasted and grilled peppers, thin slices of sausage scattered generously, or beef, as well as U.S. style ham and Italian prosciutto are... More

This restaurant is a few blocks from my house. I think of it as my second kitchen. Their wood fired pizza is perfect, and I have it once a week. The service is very good. Their pasta and other Italian dishes are also very good. Friends of mine have described it as authentic Italian (I haven't been to Italy, so... More

Came here to celebrate a friends birthday, her choice. I called ahead and asked if it would be okay if I brought my own cake. They, very generously, told me it would be fine. I am very grateful that they did. They even put a few candles in it for me. Came out and sang Happy Birthday! For an appetizer... More

I love this place. It's right in my neighborhood and I take a lot of people visiting from out of town here. Cozy atmosphere along with some of the best Italian food in Evanston. Great bread to begin with and the Duck Pappardelle has never let me down! Good choice of wines.

Our friends took us to Trattoria DOC on a mid-afternoon weekend. The place was practically deserted -- perfect for quiet conversation. Almost everything we tried was great: sautéed whole artichokes with crabmeat (possibly a special) , pasta with salmon in vodka sauce; calamari all a griglia. Soups were filling. The carpaccio is also recommended. The bread and olive oil was... More

This is a great neighborhood pizza, Italian food spot on the south side of Evanston. The pizzas are authentically Italian and some of the pasta dishes are unusual and delicious. It is a family owned restaurant with good service and a comprehensive wine list.
