    One of the top Italian restaurants in Chicago! Definitely a Lincoln Park staple, the quality of food and staff etiquette is unmatched.

    Excellent food, romantic interior. Pricey, but worth it.

    They have a wide, well defined, and delicious array of gluten-free choices across their menu, and a wonderfully attentive and helpful staff.

    If I lived near here, I would come by and drink their water, eat their bread, and have a big bowl of butternut squash soup every day. Van Gogh cocktails on special occasions. It would be heaven!

    Good food, super slow service. Lost friend's CC and it took the manager 20 min to come over and NOT apologize. We were then accused of just trying to get free stuff.

    The only good thing about this place was bread. Prices are way too high for that quality of food.

    Say it with me, butternut squash soup. You have to come here and eat that soup. Even if you're not a soup person, you will thank me.

    Worst risotto ever, like panda express fried rice, but worse.

    The shrimp & chicken jambalaya is full of character and paired with a zesty sauce. Also, the drinking water is delicious with hints of varying fruits and veggies that are submerged in it.

    Grilled portobello mushroom appetizer with balsamic glaze is awesome. And they might have the best seared ahi tuna I've ever had. Kudos to the chef

    Get the Gorgonzola stuffed Gnocchi. They are little cloud pillows of happiness.

    Don't get the chicken entree's. Frozen chicken tastes rubbery.

    I LOVE their Spring Mix with field Berries, Gorgonzola, Almonds in a Honey Vinaigrette. Add some grilled chicken and you're set!
