Manager Jesus was really on top of providing attentive service, as the server for our table had a large group. We enjoyed the happy hour offerings in the bar prior to be seated and really enjoyed the drinks and appetizers. The homemade pasta was delicious, as were the brick chicken, branzino and wonderful selection of wines. This place was packed on a Monday evening - we will return and I highly recommend. More

Excellent food and great service. We chose the chef’s special where they brought rolls the chef had chosen. We ordered 4 rolls which was just right for 4 people. The “Fish n Chips” appetizer was great! Raw tuna mixture on a large chip like a taco chip. Everything was great! It’s byob.. no alcohol on menu. Overall a wonderful restaurant!! More

Italian | La Grange, West Suburbs

The food was very good; if you get calamari (which is excellent) maybe ask for extra sauce. We don't overdo it but we ran out before finishing the appetizer. Lasagna and tiramisu were excellent. Shrimp with pasta and broccoli was very good. Restaurant was full but noise level was still moderate. Great "family owned vibe." We went on a Friday night and our server was definitely hustling - it was challenging for her because we all ordered salads and the restaurant ran out of lettuce . . . but she brought us soup. Overall, I will return. More

We are up and running and willing to accommodate your requests to celebrate special occasions, host family gatherings or meet for a quick beer after work.
