Time Out says

As Lincoln Park’s go-to Italian joint for all occasions—witness the awkward Internet date in one corner, the anniversary celebration in another—it’s easy to get the impression that people are coming here out of habit. In fact, the throngs of people are attracted to the warm, homey room and the housemade pastas like spaghetti with veal meatballs and fennel-flecked Italian sausage, or sumptuous gnocchi paired with a lively pesto sauce. They’re so tasty you’ll realize that the locals’ habit is for good reason.

The owner of this intimate Italian spot goes out of his way to personalize your experience. Not only do they do tons of advertising, but just last week I received a gift certificate in the mail for my half birthday. As if that wasn't nice enough of a touch - the entire envelope had a HAND WRITTEN (font, but it really had me fooled) note about them appreciating my business and how everyone notices your birthday but not half birthdays. That alone just floored me!!!

I went on a Monday night with a friend and we were surprised to learn that Monday nights for $20 a person you get a four course, family style meal. It was such an unbelievable value. Between the two of us, we had leftovers for days. The food was really excellent too and you were not limited in choices for the $20 special. We were even able to order lobster ravioli that was by far our favorite of all the yummy dishes. Our server was extremely friendly (my friend felt he might have been a little too friendly, but who am I to resist the flattery?!).

Our friends were even so impressed with the staff; service, wine selection, and food that they've decided to have their wedding reception here in July so I can't wait to see how this restaurant manages to blow me away in this capacity.
