    I don't understand how this restaurant got any good reviews. The atmosphere lacked ambiance, the food was greasy, the music left a lot to be desired. Don't waste your time here. I would rather have eaten elsewhere.

    Pretty good place

    Valet or easy street parking, good size drinks, decent wine. Get there early on Fri-Sat. This is a blue collar neighborhood place, not some hoity-toity Taylor street place where everything costs 25% more. At lunchtime, you'll find plenty of lawyers, judges (and a few defendants) from 26th and Cal chowing down there. I enjoy the lasagna, several of the veal dishes, and their huge salads. If you're a real food connoisseur, maybe it's not for you. But for the average taste, it's good food in a fun atmosphere, especially if you sit in the front room.

    Not worth the trip

    Had read great reviews and even had recommendations but something must have really changed. Perhaps a new chef? Osso Buco was more like stew. Spaghetti was undercooked, meat sauce was meat but no sauce and very bland. Ravioli were more like dumplings and also bland. Not even sure what was in them. Tiramisu was passable but we've had much better. Will not return.

    Not recommended

    Every review of this restaurant was positive -- but we were very disappointed. We thought we beat the standard expensive Chicago dining experience when we arrived. Cozy, family style environment. And the wine and the salads were ok. But the home made ravioli (mine with crab and shrimp) was chewy and in some cream sause of some kind. I expected crab meat and chunks of shrimp -- it was some paste of some kind that was so overwhelmed by the not very impression cream sause (their version of marinara?). Linda's veal saltibucca (sorry for the spelling) was a tad on the dry side while still being greasy. The side of pasta with meat sauce was, for meat sauce, bland and flavorless and to top it off, no freshly ground cheese to add to anything. To top it off, we couldn't even get a cab to take us away after the disappointing experience. Eat here at your own risk.

    Excellent neighborhood restaurant

    Great home cooked food with wait staff that that has been there forever. They take great care in providing good food with excellent service.
