The food was good. I ordered the catfish and fettuccine Alfredo past that was tasty. Our waitress was not attentive at all. She forgot to give us the bread and we had to look for her when we needed things.

Good plates, quantity and price are ok... but the service was bad: waitress very unfriendly, she said only a couple of words and gave me the wrong bill over 4 table! However nothing seems italian on there... and I'm italian.

Hyde Park
If you want to get a feel for quintessential South
Side Chicago, you have to make a stop in Hyde Park,
one of the city’s most popular neighborhoods. This
historic area is home to two of the city’s most
prominent cultural institutions, the Museum of Science
and Industry and the University of Chicago. A stroll
here will bring you past vintage and grand hotels
converted into luxury apartment buildings; peaceful
