"You cannot beat the atmosphere...crowded tables, slightly cranky though excellent waitress and delicious food. No pretensions and hey the cops eat there - has to be the pretty darn good."

"If you are looking for great food at reasonable prices, this family owned and run restaurant is the place to go. We have been going here for years and always enjoy the homey atmosphere and great waitresses. It's small restaurant with a big heart. And...they have valet parking so don't worry about trying to find a place to park in The Heart of Italy!"

"Ample food (my doggie bag produced 2 more dinners). My pasta carbonara was very good, although my wife's chicken risotto was just ok. The chicken in that dish seemed defrosted and bland. Appetizers were fine, especially fried calamari. Tables are very close together. Service was slow, but friendly. Pretty loud atmosphere. Valet parking, $9."

"We've gone here for about 20+ years. It's awesome. The food is great, and a nice value. Service is very nice.
This is a great restaurant for families and groups....but also a nice romantic treasure also.
Completely recommend!"

"After reading the reviews on yelp, I thought we were in for a great experience. Unfortunately that wasn't the case. Grew up in little Italy so I'm familiar with Italian greatness. This is not one of those places. Our Service was slow and the food was very mediocre. If your looking for some Italian seafood the menu is limited. Had the mussels and they tasted old, my husband had the pork tenderloin and it was boring. Very tiny place so I'm not sure why the service was so slow. If your looking for elbow room you won't find it. If you like tight and loud, this is the place for you."

"We've never had a bad meal here. It's a perfect place for out-of-towners because it gives them a real sense of Chicago. The service is always friendly and quick, the food is the best Italian food in Chicago in our opinion, and we can usually get a table."

"We were looking for a small Italian place to go with friends and didn't want to go into the City. This place fit the bill. Good service, we had to call to let the Restaurant know we'd be a couple minutes late due to heavy traffic and they had no problem holding our table."

"After we got our seating situation sorted out--a hostess had initially not placed us in the main dining room despite our having reservations--our waitress was quite friendly and helpful. The food was plentiful and tasty. A bill for two (excluding alcohol and tip) was just around $53.00. The neighborhood and clientele are homogeneous, but the atmosphere is largely welcoming."

"The food was absolutely amazing ! That is secondary as their service was superb. Absolutely paid so much a attention to detail. We were celebrating our one year wedding anniversary and they made us feel at home and extremely special."

"Beautiful setting, large portions are great when we were walking back home I gave the rest to a homeless man and just by the smell he was grateful. Perfect for dates and recommend even dressing up for an awesome dinner. One of the best in Chicago!"
