Have tried many of their dishes. Everything is fresh made and delicious. We've never had a bad meal. Parking is limited when they are busy. Used to go to Chicago for a good Italian meal but not anymore.

The pasta dishes were good but the freshly baked bread topped it all. The seating was a bit tight that it's not that easy to get in and out of one's table.

This visit I tried the lasagna but wouldn't reorder. It was too mushy & very different then any other but tasty. After having their home made gnocchi during a previous visit I am spoiled. Look for coupons to really make your visit superior

Have nothing negative to say, everything was good. Seated promptly, server was very efficient and the food was good and there was plenty of it. There are 2 portion sizes......Little Italy and Big Italy, and unless you have a huge appetite, order the Little Italy....More
