We always request our favorite waitperson on OpenTable. Unfortunately, our request has not been honored since before Christmas. While I have complained in these reviews, the management has never called to explain nor apologize nor for the surely treatment we have from the tall hostess (again last night). Ystdy I called to make sure we would have him and they honored the request. It was a pleasure to see him again, the food and drinks were excellent as always. The only improvement I can think of would be to add a couple white fish dishes (Haddock, Halibut, Sea Bass, etc) instead of only the Salmon.

I shared the baked goat cheese appetizer, which was delicious. It was difficult to choose my entrée, even though I had decided that I wanted pasta, because of all the choices. My rigatoni spinaci was wonderful. I was glad that I chose the larger portion because this is an entree that makes for good leftovers at home. I also enjoyed a glass of pinot grigio. The salted caramel gelato was a good choice for dessert, given that I was already somewhat full but wishing to have something from the dessert menu. The service was friendly, helpful, and efficient.

We ordered the pear pizza (something different that I was very pleased with) and my partner had a chicken dish that he said was more than delicious. The flavor profiles of the dishes were unique (to us at least) and worked very well together. Excited to try more of the menu! Noise ebbs and flows like any restaurant, a few larger groups were there the same night we were. The inside was beautiful, such a great spot!

Found it by chance as I was looking for a comfortable place in Oak Park for a business dinner. Parking lot just steps away. On quiet North Blvd which was welcome after the noise of my day. Very welcoming and personable service. Perfectly matched beet and warm goat cheese in the salad. Seriously wonderful pizza and very fresh ingredients. Nice wine list that allows an affordable 5oz pour or the more normally priced 8oz pour. Very glad I visited.

This time we got the beef tenderloins from the specials menu--incredible! The rustic salad with strawberries, pears, and candied walnuts is delicious. Our favorite pasta dish is the linguine artichoke.

Everything was amazing, and our waiter could not have been more friendly and attentive. We would recommend this spot for dates or families (they’ll make kids size portions of the pasta!).

Toward the end of our meal, we found out that my sisters and I were adding to the noise level. An older couple came over to our table as they were leaving and told us we were very loud. That put a damper on things for the rest of the evening. Apparently, they had a few other complaints about other diners. The hostess came to our table to apologize. I really don’t think we were that loud.
