Whenever we find ourselves looking for a nice place in the NW Suburbs to go out to dinner with family, friends, and/or business associates, we think of Vittorio de Roma. (They used to be open to the public for lunch, but now I believe daytime hours are limited to group events.) In any case, it had been about a year since we were last at the restaurant, and the food was very good, as always, but our server this time was not quite "on top of things." Our party of four was given a single basket of their delicious breads (plain Italian slices, and chunks of foccacia) to go with the olive oil and cheese, and he never came back to ask if we wanted more. In contrast, we noticed the couple at an adjacent table received a second basket from their waitress before their main courses arrived.
All entrees come with a choice of soup or salad...The salad is basically just lettuce and a tomato wedge, but their house balsamic dressing is exceptionally tasty. The soup choices are either homemade minestrone or pasta fusilli; one member of our group selected the minestrone and enjoyed it very much. Main courses for our table were a salmon dish, pork chops, and a chicken selection. All portions were good sized, and the people who had ordered the pork chops took home "doggie bags" with plenty left over for another meal.
As we mentioned before, there may be a few little things that could be improved, but for reliably good Italian cuisine in the NW Suburbs, Vittorio de Roma is a great place to go. (In fact, the other couple we were with, who had never been there before, phoned us the day after, and said they can't wait to go back, and try another item or two that they'd seen on the menu.)
