Food is excellent, service is unbeatable. Been there at least 3 times as it is convenient to the theaters and we've always had a great meal and experience. Be sure and check out the upstairs bar -- really cool looking.

Best meal we have enjoyed in Chicago. Cannelloni Shell was thin, sauces delish, filling generous...my husband’s fav dish and this was among his favorite ever. The generous mixed salad was his selection... I had soup and salad. The mixed salad must be the best value...More

How do you choose a single entree from a menu that offers dozens of delicious Italian choices? Thankfully there were 8 of us and we were able to share bites of each other's selections...seafood ravioli, risotto, eggplant parmesean, steak. Good service, lively environment.

good starting point to sample the city's energy and
flavor. This central business district boasts
Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier
shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep
your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many
photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of
