Live nearby and haven’t eaten here for some reason in those 37 years.... and it seems I haven’t missed much. Relatively cramped but it worked and wasn’t too hard to hear our table mates. Servers were enthusiastic, young, uninformed but tolerable. We underwent the ‘food...More

Small place, tables are rather cramped, but the food is consistently good, as is the service. They specialize in homemade pasta, which I've never gotten. Our favorites are salmon, lasagna, and beef tenderloin. And their bread is great! Good wine list, too.

Food was excellent! They make their own pasta Beware, the restuarant is small.(You can sit ouside during the summer months.) An option, I noticed several people picking up orders to go. The portions were approriate size. The women in our group took home "doggy bags".

Pasta was so overcooked I thought it to be from a can. My date had the fettuccine Alfredo and it was like wallpaper paste, while I had the bolognese and it was like eating sloppy joe's.

I want to like this place. It's been around Wilmette for at least 20 years, so they must be doing something right. But, every time I go, something goes wrong. Screaming kids at the table next to us, wine that gets spilled by busboys, dishes...More
