Norwood Park restaurant serving traditional Italian, including hard-to-find specialties like braciole.
This neighborhood restaurant serves terrific regional Italian dishes like bucatini manzo, hollow pasta served with a homey short-rib tomato sauce; even the bread—served with homemade giardiniera—stands out. House-made pastas include decadent lobster ravioli in a rich cream sauce and gnocchi with Gorgonzola and walnuts. An appetizer of tender long-stemmed grilled artichokes came piled with salad, good-quality prosciutto, and Parmesan and drizzled with balsamic. Large family groups tend to fill the courtyard and narrow dining room, and there's a charming bar in the back of the house; service is polished and professional. Don't miss the house-made limoncello and gelato from Angelo Gelato.
