It was a great choice for a holiday get together lunch. The menu had a terrific variety. Service was outstanding and we were not rushed to leave.

I would recommend to a friend but I would say do not order the eggplant parm. There was not a description of it on the menu so I made the wrong choice. It was not the usual eggplant parm dish in layers like a lasagna. it was three patties of eggplant with melted cheese on top. Not that great for sure. I do, however, love the pizza there. Wish I would have stuck with my usual.

Not handicapped friendly

No valet parking so you have to park in the general parking lot and walk which for people with walkers is difficult to do

Had to send someone in to get them to unlock the regular door since I couldn't go thru the revolving doors with a walker

Had to ask 3 different people before we got bread

Waiter had an attitude when I asked him a question

Love this place. We have been coming since it opened, usually 4-5 times annually. Great service, many of the servers have been here for years and know the menu and wine list inside out. Food is really good. I had the pork tenderloin risotto special and my wife had the butternut squash ravioli seasonal special. Dessert was the pear crostata, also super. Lively atmosphere and packed on a Sunday evening-reservations strongly recommended. The food, service and atmosphere will keep us coming back. One of our favorite restaurants.

Love the lively atmosphere. Food is great. I was only planning on having half of the cavatelli with the meat sauce to save some for the next day but it was too damn good and I just ate it all up. Kids loved the pepperoni pizza. My wife loved the eggplant Parmesan. Prior to dinner, Izabela at the bar made me the best grey goose dirty martini. Will definitely be back. One suggestion, always have pistachio gelato every day.

Excellent food and service. Problem was that it was to warm in the restaurant! Server said that there was nothing they could do. Claimed that temperature was controlled by the shopping mall.

Love this restaurant. Everything we’ve ever ordered has been delicious. Big fans of chicken Parmesan, chopped salad, minestrone soup, pizzas, tiramisu...I could go on and on. They honored our reservation within a few minutes, food was served in a timely fashion and the management really has it all together! Despite the long drive to get to Oak Brook, it’s worth it! Can’t wait to return!

I've eaten here many times and enjoyed the good food and dining experience.
I was disappointed on 11/23 with the Scallops dish as they did not seem to be cooked all the way through.
Our waitress was wonderful! The guy who cleans tables was very disruptive as he kept trying to take our dishes away before we were through eating. There were no people waiting so his behavior was in poor taste.

We were a group of 4. Service and food was great. Server made good, helpful suggestions. We did a fair amount of sharing and plates and utensils were supplied without being requested. Hadn’t seen each other in a while and we were not rushed either to order or to leave. Will certainly be back.

The food is always good. You can depend on it. It was a Sunday night so it was crowded,busy and loud. Our server Rebecca hd many tables that had 4-6 people. Which is most likely why our service lacked. She forgot several things, was unable to check back after we got our food or our bill. She was very nice.

Wonderful food but they pack you in like sardines. Constantly moving our chairs to accommodate servers and patrons. And it was loud.
The place is popular and people were waiting for tables the whole time.
I might go back on a weeknight and hope that the tables around me are empty.

We dined there for the first time celebrating our wedding anniversary. The food is outstanding! We went back because we enjoyed it so much. Service wasn’t as good as the first time, maybe because it was very busy, but still good! We will definitely go back because the cuisine is outstanding!
