“hearty food”
Reviewed 25 May 2014

Great service, large portions. Calamari was delicious and reasonably priced. This has a family atmosphere with sports channels on the Tv. Not for a romantic evening.

“Best restaurant in downtown Downers Grove!”
Reviewed 1 May 2014 via mobile

Family-friendly, amazing food, super nice staff & service, cool exposed-brick open warehouse ambience, great value, and a well stocked bar. Intimate enough for a first date or anniversary, and casual enough to bring the kids or watch a game at the bar. Order the Chicken Milano... it's sometimes on the specials board, but they'll make it for you "off the menu" any time - Chicken Natalie and Chicken Carmine are also fantastic... Muscles or calamari apps are excellent too. enjoy!

“Italian all the way”
Reviewed 16 April 2014

If you are in to top shelf Italian food then this is the place. It's packed all of the time. Huge variety of dishes. I never had a bad meal hear. I bring my grand children all of the time. Don't misunderstand me, most families have their children well mannered. It's a family place.

“Chicken Pingoli”
Reviewed 16 April 2014

They do not have it on the Menu but if you ask for this dish they will make it for you. It has the best taste and they give you plenty of chiken over angel hair pasta.

“One (really) spicy meatball & meat sauce to match”
Reviewed 22 February 2014

Started out with great calamari and bread and all downhill from there. First time in many years I failed to finish a meal. My wife could not eat her meatball and I ate less than 20% of the main. Think the waiter would have given some indication that their meatball and meat sauce was spicy, but he was strictly an order taker. Very perfunctory. Never stopped by to even ask how was the food. A major disappointment with a $100+ bill for 4.

Lacked any special touches, e.g. grated cheese. Pretends to be an upscale place, but more like a noisy pizza parlor.
