Very reasonable prices. First time in Chicago, so had to try the Italian beef sandwich. The bread was soggy but I don't like soggy bread. But I also had split pea soup and it was delicious.

this is such a great place if you want to grab something really fast & not spend a lot. Their menu is sure to please anyone & I would recommend the calzone or one of the pasta salads!

Lat month i was in Chicago on a business trip and stumbled on a crowded Italian restaurant in the old sears tower building in the lower level.
There was a huge line in front of me, but it moved very fast, i tried several things on their menu and found the food as good as any another more expensive restaurant anywhere.
The portions are huge and very reasonable, but the food was beyond expectation for a lunch place.
I plan on visting again every time I'm in Chicago

Ahhhh, this place serves wonderful, buttery garlic breads on the side with entrees. you can't go wrong with pizza or lasagna (and the cajun pasta salad is just darn good). Getting through the lines are pretty quick too. A good lunch time favorite (located in the lower level of the Willis Tower) for those who work downtown.
