My hubby and I decide to walk from our hotel to find a place to have dinner. We were lucky enough to find this wonderful Italian restaurant. Great staff and food was phenomenal.

Whenever I am in Evanston, I must stop at this amazing Italian restaurant-Trattoria on Main St. The food triggers childhood memories of sitting down with the family for warm, hearty pasta dishes. The pappardelle with duck ragout is so flavorful and satisfying. Also the risotto...More
