“One of those small, inexpensive, casual Italian places that is real and reliable. This is…a nice place where the food is enjoyable and the price is right.”

“Frank Sinatra ate here. Well, it’s the kind of place he probably would have dined at had it opened before he died. Should you still need a celebrity endorsement, take a look at the walls, which are lined with more head shots than a Hollywood casting agency can claim: Jim Belushi, Nicolas Cage and Sophia Loren have all cozied up to the white tablecloths.”

Chicago Tribune, 1999

“Low key Italian restaurant draws in high-profile diners.”

La Scarola Chicago Social Magazine

Chicago Social Magazine, 2000, Best of Chicago Issue
