    You can never go wrong here because the menu is so vast! Make sure you asked to be seated in the "rotunda room" with a window seat of Michigan Ave

    Very affordable, huge portions, you always end up taking some home. The chicken pot pie is great and the salads are really good. The best seats are by the windows looking out on N. Michigan ave.

    Anyone leaving a tip saying to share is foolish. Each get a dish. Then you can try something different.

    Lunch sized portions are insanely big! Try the pasta fresca with eggplant and basil. Oh and make sure to order dessert at least 45 minutes in advance.

    Always order the chocolate chip cookies as soon as you sit down to order with the intent to them take to go. They take 20 to 25 minutes to prepare. They are well worth it.
