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.

…families & local celebrities sit elbow to elbow at this lively storefront for no-nonsense dishes in gigante portions.
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.

I know that everytime I go with a client they walk away with a full stomach and a happy face..

You feel like Grandma is going to walk out of the kitchen and pinch your cheeks. Cheap décor & ‘tight’ seating don’t dissuade devotees. Wonderful…old school…a terrific hideaway. Expect to take home doggie bags from this Italian storefront…most of the amazing eats maintain the traditional style, and the no-attitude service makes for an enjoyable experience
Best Cannoli in Chicago.
Low key Italian restaurant draws in high-profile diners.

Best restaurant to make like Tony Soprano.
