This intimate Italian restaurant is a haven from the madness on Clark Street in Lincoln Park. Details make it feel special: the colorful slices of fruit in your water, the complimentary bruschetta that eases you into a relaxing meal. The menu offers mostly standard pasta dishes, done very well, and a few house specialties, which are enormous. Salads are large and fresh; the house mix is field greens, walnuts, and Gorgonzola dressed with a flavorful balsamic vinaigrette. Overall the prices are reasonable for the quality of the experience.
