Not sure what these California peeps are talking about (see Yelp reviews), but I have lived in the city of Chicago my entire life and now moving out to the burbs this place is all that it is cracked up to be and more. You can tell it is homemade from the Red sauce to the cheese pizza. The stuffed artichoke leaves me speechless. The best about this place is the monthly pasta dishes they have in their dining room. What a treat. Great place great people.
