Not usually a fan of chains but this Chicago based one gets high marks. We dined with our 1 year old and he was treated like a king. Service for the adults wasn’t bad either. The two pasta dishes we sampled were very good and while we thought the bruschetta was a tad overpriced the quality was again top notch. The space was simple and not particularly noteworthy.

Excellent service. Good Food. Pretty descent wine list. Location is perfect, right off the heart of the downtown. Good place to meet friends for dinner.
