Still crowded, loud, and hugely popular for reasonably priced Italian fare.
Years after the buzz began, this Wrigleyville Italian restaurant remains busy, loud, and fashionable. The menu changes every two weeks, offering six pastas and fish, chicken, and veal or pork chops, all reliably tasty and fresh. Expansion onto the second floor and coach house has helped thin the throng a bit, but waits in the cramped bar space can still be intolerable. Consensus: its a great value, if you can stand the crowds--and the garden patio provides some respite.
