Food is excellent with very good service. Only negative is that it is rather small. Restaurant patrons have to be seated very closely, so not a great place for an intimate dinner. Pastas are excellent and desert is also very good!

Not a destination restauarant, but has improved menu over the past few years (added more -- and better prepared -- meat dishes). Wines were OK but not outstanding. Server was qucik and personable. On weekday evening, it was noisy and a bit packed, which are good and not so much "things".

Very popular small restaurant. Excellent service and many choices beyond pasta. Other than being so crowded it was hard to make room for plates on table, was beyond expectations. A bit pricey.

Very cozy old fashion Italian restaurant. Excellent fresh food, service was great and friendly. Menu changes to add available fresh ingredients, you can read it all on the board. Good wine list. Francesco the owner is a great host. Lucy his daughter is gracious and helpful. Love this place, worth the traveling from Chicago to visit them, you wont regret it.
